Can anyone explain to me why people credit Obama with getting us out of Iraq?

It's the same crowd that think Obama saved us from another great depression.

They're called idiots.

Simple. They do it because their guy hasn't done anything to brag about.

Man I wish I was smart and knew everything like you.
I hardly know everything.

I do know that killing children with bombs is a pretty nasty business. I also know that it doesn't seem to bother anyone who voted R or D the last few years.

I also know Obama didn't get us out of Iraq. I also know we are still in Iraq. You can scroll up for the link with posts from service members in Iraq, this month, currently, now.

You certainly are and Wikipedia may help Withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

31 December 2011 U.S. forces complete their withdrawal from Iraq. No U.S. troops in Iraq. All security responsibilities assumed by the Iraqi Armed Forces and other security agencies, including the Ministry of Interior (Iraq). United States Forces ? Iraq - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There are still some military there doing the training....you're link is wrong when it says all troops are gone from there! This link is from October 2012......

Despite claims by the Obama administration about “ending the Iraq war” and bringing our troops home, the US is still very much involved in Iraq, in training the abusive security forces, in propping up the corrupt and dictatorial Maliki government, and in trying to slowly slip more US forces into the country.
US May Keep American Troops in Iraq, Despite Lack of Congressional Authority | Global Research

I think you should do a little investigating before flying off at the mouth :)
see? We have military at every embassy in the world...so using your logic we have troops in almost every single country in the world.

:lol: When people speak of 'troops' being in a country we are speaking (All except you who failed to read the memo) of combat troops and troops with a military fighting mission.

Every Embassy has military men and women in uniform. Almost every nation we are friendly with has military advisers too...no one with a brain considers this as 'having troops' in a nation
My link states TROOPS, so yes we still have TROOPS in Iraq. Just because they're mainly there for training, do you actually think they wouldn't shoot back if shot at? Iraq is very unstable. I'll bet you that within the next 2 years there will be be another Iraq war, and it will be Obama's war this time. That's if Iran doesn't do something stupid and the whole ME blows up!

On Bush's pre-arranged timeline.
Excuse me

But Bush was not Commander in Chief after Jan 20 2009.......Obama was

All the troops were still in Iraq when Bush left office.......they were removed under Obama

He left on Bush's timetable.
He sent Biden over to Iraq to try and get the combat troops to stay in Iraq longer but the Iraqi government said please fuck off.
We still have troops in Iraq.


I'm confused?

Please don't read this as me giving thanks to GWB who was just as bad as Obama if not worse.
Becausenot giving Obama credit would mean admitting that Bush is the one responsible for it.
