How do you spell Chutzpah? Biden on Iraq

Here are some just unbelievable comments by VP Joe Biden. Makes you want to scream after all those years of Biden and Obama bitterly opposing every move President Bush made in deposing Saddam and in freeing Iraq.

Joe Biden update: Iraq one of Obama's 'great achievements'

Who knew?

Thank goodness, Vice President Joe Biden went on CNN to chat with Larry King Wednesday night. So many think things are not going so well for the Democrat administration, as The Ticket chronicled here.

Many Americans recall the ex-Sen. Biden's Democratic primary plans to give in to Iraq's fractious factions and carve the country into three territories. And even more probably recall Biden's boss' plan to halt the Iraq war years ago. As long as it got started anyway without the permission of the then state senator.

Plus, of course, the vehement opposition of the Nobel Prize winner to the 2007 American troop surge of you-know-who from Texas that Obama knew for certain was only going to worsen sectarian strife there

If video does not load go here.

Well, of course, it didn't turn out that way, thanks in large measure to the brave service of hundreds of thousands of U.S. troops who served in that war-torn land and helped peace to break out despite the loud political acrimony back home over their role.

Now, the Obama-Biden pair that opposed the Iraq war and its tactics and predicted their failure is prepared to accept credit for its success.

It seems that Biden, who's from Delaware when he's in Delaware and Pennsylvania when in Pennsylvania, is certain now that Iraq will turn out to be one of the Obama-Biden administration's greatest achievements.

No, really.

Here's how Biden put it to Lar:

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.

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 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.

Biden did not elaborate on what all the administration's other "great achievements" were so far.

No doubt, Iraqis too are very thankful for that 2008 U.S. election.

When we leave, the Sunnis and Shiites will be at each other's throats. The infidel does not dictate to Muslims what Islam is. No more "nation building".

Also fighting them over there, while allowing Islam to walk across the West, makes little sense in the end.

Isn't it funny that our "Community Organizer In Chief" and his royal gesture lap dog are singing a different tune now about the situation in Iraq? With his present ratings going down the toilet, I can understand the desperation of this fool as he tries to hang on tenaciously to whatever will put him in the good graces of the American People. It's a shame that he can't admit to himself that the folks are not with him on Obamacare. It seems like just yesterday that we all heard Harry Reid get up in front of Congress waving a white flag of surrender and saying," the Iraq War is lost." "We need to get our troops out of there and bring them home." Oh, really? Is it any wonder why the Democrats are known as the party of surrender, Socialism, and sub-prime mortgages? As for Joe Biden, if we didn't have him to laugh at, this country would be pretty dull. After all, who could ever take a chuckle head like like Joe Biden, serious?
