"IF YOU SAY SO"

It was interesting to see that Vice President Biden (aka clown czar) was pleased to see the progress that is happening in Iraq as far as democracy and self-rule of the Iraqi people and reduction of terrorism are concerned and his remark that this progress is one of the best accomplishments of the Obama administration. This is the same person as a senator who fought the Bush administration in every way possible in regards to the Iraq situation and declared this exercise not winnable and advocated partitioning Iraq into three regions. The Obama administration inherited the efforts of the Bush administration and is now trying to take credit even though both Biden and Obama were against the "surge" efforts that proved to be successful. Sounds a little hypocritical to me; but maybe that is a prerequisite to being a modern day politician. I guess it is "OK" to "Blame Bush" and his staggering unemployment rate of up to 5.4% for years on end and then take credit for the improved Iraqi situation which they had not only nothing to with but also tried to stop. "If you say so Joe"; but I for one don't agree with taking credit for things you had nothing to do with and blaming someone else for the current economy when your actions have not only done nothing to improve the economy but have worsened the prospects for employment growth through massive deficit spending and threats to tax any business that has the audacity to try to make a profit.
