    A new take on the surge now that the dems are in office.

    He's welcoming troop home, it's a "job well done" talk. Way to turn it into something it's not. American thinker indeed.

    Yes, but there was little acknowledgement of any progress before even though there was a lot.

    He's talking about their deployment: when they arrived and when they left. Again, it's a pep talk, not a policy talk. Turning it into something that it's not is not particularly honest.

    Messiah inherited Iraq so now Iraq is OK.

    During the Bush days Scumbag John Fonda Kerry once said American Troops were entering homes and terrorizing Iraqi women and children during the nightime, I wonder if Bastard Kerry has checked to see what is going on in Afganistan............

    GET BUSH
    GOD DAMN HALIBURTON
    A MORON BEAT THE DINGOBATS "TWICE"...........:singing:

    Just makes it more of a pep talk, good job, affair, and not a statement on policy. No switch in position was made here.

    Oh now you're putting words in to people's mouths. There are ways of making good arguments and that is not one of them.

    Well your statement certainly indicated that he wasn't telling his audience the truth??? Did he mean what he said to these troops?

    Yes or no will do.

    How much clearer can I say it? He's acknowledging their individual contributions and there's no lie there. But it cannot be in any way interpreted as a policy position on the surge or the Iraq war. I couldn't have been clearer or more consistent my position, so you can keep trying to turn it into something that it's not, but it won't be correct.

    Biden in the first sentence acknowledged the surge was a success.

    The next sentence he admits we were fighting Al Queda in Iraq abd deakth them a serious blow. This was not what the rats were saying BEFORE the election.

    The word surge was not used once in his address. You're being pretty dishonest here, and you're being convenient. For the tenth time, it is not a policy statement. Do not construe it as one. It is an address to troops returning home from Iraq, congratulating them on their achievements - whatever they might be. :ugh:

    He was specific in their achievement and they were deployed as part of the surge. I do love how irratating that is to you that we were fighting Al Queda and that we did so successfully..:singing::singing::p

    You're putting words in to my mouth again. It is not irritating, it is simply wrong. It also means you don't have a real argument. You keep making mistakes.

    Can we at least be happy that Joe finally said something without making an ass of himself? Maybe now Obama will let him into the White House again for a little face time.
