Hillary, Edwards and Obama Agree They Cannot Commit to a Troop Withdrawal Time Table

Democrates have made more than a u-turn in their view on withdrawing US troops from Iraq. Last year they promised if they gain control of Congress they would force a pull out. At the beginning of the campaign season, the one the democrats started early, they made that one of their biggest issues, by trying to force Bush into setting a time table.

Now the leading candidates, the onese most likely to be elected, have done a 720 and are chasing their tails. The trailers, claim to be able to with draw troops, because they know it will get them some vote… maybe… Not that they have a snowballs chance in hell of getting the nomination to run for President.

At least Bush has been realistic all along and not set a time table, because he knows it is not a feasibility.

The leading Democratic White House hopefuls conceded Wednesday night they cannot guarantee to pull all U.S. combat troops from Iraq by the end of the next presidential term in 2013.

The candidates have vied with increasing intensity for the support of anti-war voters.

“I think it’s hard to project four years from now,” said Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois in the opening moments of a campaign debate in the nation’s first primary state.

“It is very difficult to know what we’re going to be inheriting,” added Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.

“I cannot make that commitment,” said former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina.

  1. Yeah, I was all excited for Obama because he seemed like he would be different…and maybe he will be once he gets elected. But man, right now he’s such a let down…skipping out on votes, not saying he’ll withdraw…I mean what are they scared of?! Politicians don’t have a habit of keeping campaign promises, and there are a ton of excuses to change your mind on Iraq withdrawal. When 70% of the country wants out of Iraq, you’d think they’d all be promising to have us out of Iraq by the end of their first day in office.

    But no. I’m really starting to hate politics.

    Nice logo, btw.
