Yet another broken promise.
This is not the change we hoped for. President Obama rose to power on the basis of his early opposition to the Iraq war and his promise to end it. But after a year in the White House he has made both of George Bush’s wars his wars.
Speaking of Iraq in February 2008, candidate Barack Obama said, “I opposed this war in 2002. I will bring this war to an end in 2009. It is time to bring our troops home.” The following month, under fire from Hillary Clinton, he reiterated, ”I was opposed to this war in 2002….I have been against it in 2002, 2003, 2004, 5, 6, 7, 8 and I will bring this war to an end in 2009. So don’t be confused.”
The MSM can act like we no longer have any activity in Iraq, but we still do. So this goes in the file along with posting bills on the internet, the open debate on health care, the no tax increases on people making less than $250k per year, and a host of others.
Making promises is easy. Knowing you can’t deliver and making promises is criminal.
