It Has Begun...Hillary Takes Credit For Surge She Opposed!!
Imagine that. To set the damn record straight, please recall that the Defeatocrats INCLUDING Czarina the Budding Leninist opposed the Bush Troop Surge from the beginning. Hillary's "sudden" turn around and accepting the credit for the successes of the Bush Troop Surge requires the willful suspension of disbelief, as she herself said about General Petraeus' testimony before the CONgress way back in September of 2007. Remember that one? This is unbelievable but it has been expected.
From Gateway: (we at A Newt One concur)
Judith Apter Kliinghoffer at the History News Network posted this amazing attempt by Hillary Clinton on Meet the Press to take credit for the success in Iraq even though she opposed the Bush Surge that brought about this success:
MR. RUSSERT: If General Petraeus says, "Senator, in September you called the surge the suspension of belief. It has worked, and you know it's worked"--let me finish--"you can see on the ground. I'm saying to you, Senator, or president-elect Clinton, don't destroy Iraq. It's working, the surge is working. Keep troops there just a few more months to get this reconciliation complete."
SEN. CLINTON: ...The point of the surge was to quickly move the Iraqi government and Iraqi people. That is only now beginning to happen, and I believe in large measure because the Iraqi government, they watch us, they listen to us. I know very well that they follow everything that I say. And my commitment to begin withdrawing our troops in January of 2009 is a big factor, as it is with Senator Obama, Senator Edwards, those of us on the Democratic side. It is a big factor in pushing the Iraqi government to finally do what they should have been doing all along.
Amazing!She voted to surrender Iraq with the rest of the Democrats-- a move that would have brought total destruction to the country.
Now, she wants to take credit for its success!
Hillary Clinton on October 2, 2002:
"So it is with conviction that I support this resolution as being in the best interest of our nation. A vote for it is not a vote to rush to war. It is a vote that puts awesome responsibility in the hands of our president."
Hillary Clinton on February 7, 2007:
"Nearly four years ago our president rushed us into war in Iraq."
Yet today, this troubled and dishonest politician is bashing antiwar Barak Obama for his stand against the war we are now winning.
Who wants change?
This woman is certainly NOT ready for the Big Times and is clearly unfit for command.

I wonder why General David Petraeus sent a letter to Debbie Lee of Move America Forward a letter of thanks for supporting the troops and he didn't send one to Hillary?
