    Yes this draw-down to 50,000 troops was a George Bush plan signed with the Iraqi Government in 2008. I'm still shocked that this current President is taking all the credit for this draw-down. Even more shocking is the fact that no one in the MSM is calling him on this. This draw-down is not an Obama plan. It's a George Bush plan. Shame on the corrupt MSM for not pointing this out. That's why less & less people trust the MSM at this point.

    Him and those who voted for it that put us there to begin with are rightfully blamed but yeah, it was his plan and I don't see it ending anytime soon, 50000 is still over there in that mistake and it won't surprise me one iota if we ask for an extention come next year or go right back in.

    Yes, you are misremembering history.

    Up until mid 2008 the Bush Admin refused to make "timetables" for getting out of Iraq. When it became perfectly clear to anyone with a half a brain that even the Dems couldn't manage to lose the White House in November, Bush allowed the "time horizon" plan to go through. They used the term "time horizon" because they and their media attack dogs had painted themselves into a corner by viciously attacking support for a timetable as "support for the terrorist." However, they also knew the war was going to be "ended" by the next admin and they wanted to beat them to the political punch so people like you could claim that this was actually Bush's plan along ... and voila, time horizon. Make no mistake about it, if McCain had any kind of a chance at winning or if Bush could have run for, and won third term, there is no way that "time horizon" would have come to pass.

    They're not getting out of Iraq. This Bush plan was to draw-down troops to this 50,000 level. That's what is going to happen. This is not an Obama plan. Btw,we're not leaving Iraq or Afghanistan anymore than we have left South Korea. Anyone who thinks different is just plain ignorant and delusional.

    Well, gee, thanks for the clue, moron.

    Now here's something for you to chew on:

    Obama June 2008:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/14/opinion/14obama.html

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOSHHHH a month later.

    Bush agrees to 'horizon' for pullout - Los Angeles Times

    This was no BOOOOOOOOOOSHHH plan, this was BOOOOOOOOOSHH going "oh, shit the Dems are going to win."

    Gotta love the history rewrite attempt though.

    Nice try :thup:
