Gaffe Machine Joe Biden went on Larry King last night and during his discussion of Iraq, Biden took the plane to Fantasy Island with this one:
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.
You must be kidding me? Both Obama and Biden were dead set against everything done to make Iraq winnable. They opposed the surge, they wanted to cut and run and Biden himself offered a dopey partition solution.
This administration has spent the last year blaming Bush for everything under the sun, including problems of their own making. Now when a success appears that clearly comes from the efforts of the Bush administration, they jump to claim credit.
I understand that spinning the truth is all the rage in Washington, but come on, there just aren’t that many stupid people in the world to believe this BS.
