Obama Blames Bush for Iraq Troop Withdraw

Wednesday, August 13, 2014 (3:39 am) | Worthy News / World News

BAGHDAD (Worthy News)– President Barack Obama who spent years touting his success of withdrawing U.S. forces from Iraq, but now facing the jihadist threats of the Islamic State in the Middle East is now blaming former President Bush for the absence of American troops in Iraq.

The president who spent years touting the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq suddenly has had to distance himself from that action.

At the White House on Saturday morning — less than 48 hours after authorizing airstrikes against Islamist militants and humanitarian air drops to save the lives of trapped Iraqi civilians — President Obama blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the absence of American troops in Iraq and rejected the assertion that he could have left a small peacekeeping force in the war-torn nation.

He uttered those after three years, and a successful re-election campaign, in which the full removal of U.S. forces from Iraq was cast as this White House’s most significant foreign policy achievement and one Mr. Obama had promised all the way back to the earliest days of his first presidential campaign in 2008. — Source

    This is not surprising at all: liberals always blame conservatives for their liberal policies when they fail. Someone else called this "projection." It is a grand delusion, but in an age of uninformed voters, surprisingly effective.
