There's No "I" in Iraq...

...Oh, wait.

Iraq does have an "I" in it doesn't it? I thought our Narcissist-in-Chief used all of them up in his weekly address earlier this week.

Here's a peak:

On Tuesday, after more than seven years, the United States of America will end its combat mission in Iraq and take an important step forward in responsibly ending the Iraq war.

As a candidate for this office, I pledged I would end this war. As president, that is what I am doing. We have brought home more than 90,000 troops since I took office. We have closed or turned over to Iraq hundreds of bases. In many parts of the country, Iraqis have already taken the lead for security.

In the months ahead, our troops will continue to support and train Iraqi forces, partner with Iraqis in counterterrorism missions, and protect our civilian and military efforts. But the bottom line is this: the war is ending. Like any sovereign, independent nation, Iraq is free to chart its own course. And by the end of next year, all of our troops will be home.

Total mentions of the Bush Administration: Zero.

It's interesting. For a presidential candidate that ran on the notion of a 16-month withdraw in 2007 (BAHAHA...sorry...BAHAHA) and vehemently spoke out against the surge he sure takes a lot of credit for ending the war (like he "promised") this past August 19th.

What he fails to mention is that since being president (is it over yet...please say yes...please?) he has followed the written plan of President Bush to the line in regards to troop withdraw, funding, and timelines for Iraq.

After his weekly video address was finished being taped, it is rumored that President Soetoro had to ice his right shoulder. Yeah...apparently he threw it out from all the backpatting he did during the taping.

Do conservatives really need to continue to defend the Narcissism claims???

"If an American is to amount to anything he must rely upon himself, and not upon the State; he must take pride in his own work, instead of sitting idle to envy the luck of others. He must face life with resolute courage, win victory if he can, and accept defeat if he must, without seeking to place on his fellow man a responsibility which is not theirs." - Theodore Roosevelt
