Old History is a little bit different.
THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon, everybody. As a candidate for President, I pledged to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end — for the sake of our national security and to strengthen American leadership around the world. After taking office, I announced a new strategy that would end our combat mission in Iraq and remove all of our troops by the end of 2011.
Yeah, I see that happen a lot:
Oh and as for the “As you saw with Iraq, when the president makes a commitment, he keeps it” bit? Screw you Obama. You inherited all of that (time lines and everything) from Bush. Now you guys are to demure to talk about Bush? Punks.
I guess we’re now supposed to shovel all that stuff about “Bush time lines and everything) down the memory hole, because it’s far more important to pretend that Obama dreamed them up all on his own (and against the will of the American people, too).
