Biden: Iraq Could Be One of Obama’s Greatest Achievements

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On August 16, 2014 @ 1:39 pm In The Point | 42 Comments


The bad news is that if ObamaCare gets even worse, Iraq could actually still be the closest thing to an achievement that Obama can point to.




As Iraq falls apart, it’s worth remembering Vice President Joe Biden hailing that country as one of President Obama’s “great achievements” in a 2010 interview with then CNN host Larry King:

“I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government,” said Biden.

“I spent — I’ve been there 17 times now. I go about every two months — three months. I know every one of the major players in all of the segments of that society. It’s impressed me. I’ve been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences.”

These days Iraq is doing about as well as Larry King.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
