According to the lib media, when Barack Obama makes an unannounced trip to Baghdad, it's a triumph.
No surprise there.
Of course, when President Bush visited Iraq unannounced, it was deemed a shameful photo-op.
Cheered wildly by U.S. troops, President Barack Obama flew unannounced into Iraq on Tuesday and promptly declared it is time for Iraqis "take responsibility for their country" after America's commitment of six years and thousands of lives.
"You have given Iraq the opportunity to stand on its own as a democratic country," the president said as he made a brief inspection of a war he opposed as candidate and now vows to end as commander in chief. "That is an extraordinary achievement."
So Obama thinks it's a good thing that Iraq has been liberated by the U.S. military? An "extraordinary achievement"?
How is that possible?
That extraordinary achievement is the fruit of the war in Iraq, the war Obama opposed.
"It is time for us to transition to the Iraqis," he said as an estimated 600 troops cheered. "They need to take responsibility for their country." However, the president added that "there is still a lot of work to do here."
Inside a marble palace built by Saddam Hussein to celebrate Iraq's war victory over Iran, Obama was interrupted repeatedly with cheers from the troops.
"I love you," someone in the crowd shouted out. "I love you back," the commander in chief replied.
Scores of troops held digital cameras above their heads, snapping pictures and recording video. Vice president Joe Biden's son, Capt. Beau Biden, who is serving with the Army National Guard, was among the troops who heard Obama's speech.
MSNBC reports on all this love for Obama.
The lib media outlet wasn't nearly as enthusiastic about reporting the troops' expressions of approval for President Bush.
Again, no surprise.
This propaganda is really un-American.
