Iraq is a living monument of failed conservative foreign policy which turns out to be as criminal as it was incompetent. The fact that most of the Bush administration isn't sitting in federal prison right now is an afront to the very notion of justice.
"Obama voted against the war as a Senator, campaigned on ending it when he became President, and then ended it when he took office."

Nope...it's not like we're dealin' with unfertilised zygotes:

Fact Checker - Clinton vs Obama on Iraq

Not true, Skews....Either you are outright lying...or are "mistaken".

So what part of your post shows I am a liar? The part about he was against the war from the beginning, the part where he campaigned on ending the war, or the part about he became President and ended the war? As the post pretty much states

So that was the hoop you jumped through to try to prove my premise wrong which you failed miserably at?


Obama has been consistent in his opposition to the Iraq war. His Oct. 2, 2002, speech opposing the war stands in clear contrast to Clinton's vote later that same month to authorize military action.

The vote was in error, but your insinuation fails. Obama was against the war from the beginning. He campaigned on ending it. He was elected and did.

The fact that you nitwits are using Hillary Clinton campaign narrative to try to prove a negative is laughable. Obama is doing everything right in Iraq, where Bush did everything wrong. There's no spinning your way out of that fact.

Skews will just keep on lying, and LongWindedCamelot, WT, et al will thank him.
