    Obama has appointed General David "Betrayus" to replace General McCrystal.

    I haven't heard Odrama blame Bush for a successful "surge" yet. Or did I just miss it?

    Not only did you not miss that, but Joe Biden says that Iraq "could be one of the great achievements of this administration."

    So now it appears that Obama has fired his own handpicked general and hired Bush's handpicked general.

    A lot of democrats, including Obama, are feasting on crow, and eating their past words concerning General "Betrayus".

    It's delightful.:laugh:

    Aren't they the same people who tried to burn him at the stake in '07 or '08?

    Wow! This is more entertaining that what's playing at the movies! [​IMG]

    Personally, I think General McCrystal should be given another star. It cannot be said enough times. If there is a war worth fighting that sheds American blood, then you fight to win, win quickly and withdraw quickly. The object is victory, not a social program.

    I mean, Petraeus didn’t accomplish anything in Iraq, and actually added to the needless violence, according to now-President Barry Hussein; he’s a flat-out dishonest liar, according to now-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; we actually lost the Iraq War during Petraeus’ leadership, according to Harry Reid; and he betrayed this country, according to the leftwing machine that largely got this administration elected. And now this same general is all of a sudden the go-to-guy for these very same Democrats? I mean, excuse me?

    SNIP

    Democrats never admit how terribly wrong and in fact shockingly immoral they were when they did everything they possibly could to undermine General Petraeus and the Iraq War. But that doesn’t mean they won’t cynically and hypocritically take credit for both Iraq and Petraeus now. That’s just the kind of weasels Democrats are.

    David Petraeus was the general that Democrats and their leftist allies despised. Petraeus was Bush’s general. Petraeus was “the surge general.” And the fact that the same liberals who hated Petraeus are now cheering Obama’s selection of him makes me want to barf.

    It takes a lot to surprise me anymore but I thought - this can't be the same Petraeus who was allowed to be publicly tarred and feathered by "move on".

    Maybe it's his brother, cousin?

    No, same one, I saw him on TV.

    Now it's "a brilliant move" ?
