A baffled Bachmann tells President Obama to go back to the negotiating table
Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann wasted no time responding to President Obama's announcement that soldiers will be coming from Iraq by the end of the year. She wholeheartedly disagrees with the President actions. During the sideshows called debates, she never misses a chance to pull the ripcord of misinformation. For starters she says the President is weak. Her husband Marcus probably tells her what to say. After all she is a godly Christian woman who is obedient to her husband and God.
Regarding President Obama intentions to bring home soldiers deployed in Iraq, Bachmann stated in a press release:
"Today's announcement that we will remove all of our forces from Iraq is a political decision and not a military one; it represents the complete failure of President Obama to secure an agreement with Iraq for our troops to remain there to preserve the peace and demonstrates how far our foreign policy leadership has fallen. In every case where the United States has liberated a people from dictatorial rule, we have kept troops in that country to ensure a peaceful transition and to protect fragile growing democracies. We will now have fewer troops in Iraq than we have in Honduras – despite a costly and protracted war.
"President Obama's decision represents the end of the era of America's influence in Iraq and the strengthening of Iran's influence in Iraq with no plan to counter that influence. We have been ejected from a country by the people that we liberated and that the United States paid for with precious blood and treasure. The administration claims that we got exactly what we needed, but today's announcement demonstrates otherwise.
"The United States needed a working democratic partnership in Iraq and we should have demanded that Iraq repay the full cost of liberating them given their rich oil revenues. I call on the president to return to the negotiating table with Iraq and lead from the front and not from weakness in Iraq and in the world."
