The man who was nowhere near ready to be president
Barack Obama, September 13, 2007: “The best way to protect our security and to pressure Iraq’s leaders to resolve their civil war is to immediately begin to remove our combat troops,” Mr. Obama said. “Not in six months or one year — now.”
Barack Obama, February 26, 2009: Obama says most troops out of Iraq by August 2010
Barack Obama, April 7, 2009: The next 18 months are “critical,” Mr. Obama says [meaning, of course, that we're staying for 18 months and not 6 months or "now"].

Obama said a lot of things during the campaign.
And yet, he’s the man that is President. God that President Obama and not keeping his campaign promises, un like President Bush and his no nation building, smaller federal government stuff that he totally stuck to.
Oh, awesome, so all Obama is aiming for is being like Bush? Mission accomplished.
“Mission accomplished…” So Obama is Bush? You love Bush! You love Obama! Welcome. I’ll get you a new sticker for your laptop. Now we have six things in common!
I never had a Bush sticker on my laptop, that’s Reagan, and while Obama ran as Reagan, he’s governing like Bush.
Obama spoke the truth. Really. His speechwriters were either very clever or very lucky to have put in such precise phrasing. If pressed, Obama today can say, “Well all I said was that we should begin to pull out. I said nothing about when it would be finished.”
