A new video out from the House GOP including Republican Leader John Boehner (Ohio) and Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (Ind.) today reminds viewers of exactly where the Democrat leadership stood on the Iraq surge.
The video includes damning footage of Obama, Biden, Pelosi and Reid, and is a stark reminder of their remarks of “failure” aimed at our troops in harm’s way.
While President Obama and Vice President Biden continue to seek credit for “ending the combat mission” in Iraq, this video praises the contributions of our troops for helping bring greater stability and security there — significant progress that was only made possible through a surge strategy most Democrats like the President and Vice President opposed. As the drawdown of troops in Iraq continues, House Republicans are grateful to all the men and women in uniform, as well as their families, for the courage and sacrifices they have made, and continue to make, to advance freedom abroad and strengthen our security here at home.
Obama is set to deliver a speech on Iraq next week and it is widely believed that Obama will try to take credit for the success of the surge in Iraq that he so vehemently opposed while in the Senate.
Our volunteer forces who sacrificed so much over the past seven-plus years deserve every bit of the credit. God bless our troops and the United States of America.
