Hillary Says She Won the War in Iraq

This clip from Meet The Press ("Hillary...I am the reason the surge worked") reminds us of those really big, audacious lies that you get when you put Clintons in the White House. Jim Vicevich, a local talk show host in Hartford CT, captures Hillary Clinton telling us that the main reason that the troop surge has succeeded is not the outstanding generalship of David Petraeus, but the response of the Iraqi leadership to her demand that troops be withdrawn by January 2009. The current military success in Iraq is a Democrat victory, ands specifically the fruit of Hillary's wise statesmanship. What is even more amazing is that there are people who will believe this though they are likely already voting Democratic or they are not in the habit of voting at all.

The Old Dragon said:

The point of the surge was to quickly move the Iraqi government and the 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 (she emphasized "I"). 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.

Power Line adds a quote from an American soldier in Iraq sounding off with indignation at Hill's jaw dropping claim.

This is worse than Al Gore's claim that he invented the Internet.
