Tax cuts a failure? it's never wrong to let Americans have more of their own money. Obama has wasted so much of your tax dollars on failed green energy that money would have been better spent by the private sector.
Obama pulled the troops out of Iraq based on the timetable set by Bush and Rumsfeld. The Status of Forces Agreement that the Bush Administration signed with the Iraq government specified that U.S. combat forces would withdraw from Iraqi cities by June 30, 2009, and all U.S. forces will be completely out of Iraq by December 31, 2011. It was Bush that set the date. Not Obama.

And, as Edward Koch put it, "We left because Iraq would not allow us to remain there indefinitely and insisted that if we did remain on at all, American troops would be subject to Iraqi law and Iraqi courts for all of their military actions, which the U.S. would not agree to because it would have exposed American soldiers to personal liability in Iraqi courts."

When will you Righties get tired of mangling history?
