Obama Grudgingly Admits Military "Got the job done" but wouldn't admit success
When I heard President Obama's first speech in front of the military on Thursday, I thought it odd that he danced around the word victory without ever using it... refusing to admit that he (and Democrats) owe George W Bush the credit for the success in Iraq they are just now grudgingly admitting.
Here is what Obama and Democrat(ic)s can no longer deny however.. hidden deep in the text of his speech is the closest he will get to admitting victory in Iraq without actually saying it.
"We sent our troops to Iraq to do away with Saddam Hussein’s regime – and you got the job done. We kept our troops in Iraq to help establish a sovereign government – and you got the job done. And we will leave the Iraqi people with a hard-earned opportunity to live a better life – that is your achievement; that is the prospect that you have made possible." -President Barack Hussein Obama
Another word Obama refused to use in his speech about the now free and democratic Iraq.... "democracy".
