The Right Team Folds!!!!!!!!!

Folding a softball team can be a tough decision , b/c you feel your in too deep. Well our country has had it's American military team in the wrong league for 9 years and today it has decided to fold.

President Barack Obama
 announced a nearly complete withdrawal of American military forces from Iraq by the end of the year.
"Today, I can report that as promised, the rest of our troops in Iraq will come home from Iraq at the end of this year," Obama said. "After nine years, America's war in Iraq will be over. Over the next two months our troops in Iraq--tens of thousands of them--will pack up their gear and board convoys for the journey home."

Obama affirmed that he has been in talks with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and that the Iraqi government supported the American withdrawal. "We are in full agreement about how to move forward," Obama said.Although it was extended several times, the timeline for withdrawal was originally drafted under former President George W. Bush and implementing it was a key campaign promise for Obama when he was running for president in 2007 and 2008.

The military will keep about 160 servicemen and women in Baghdad to provide security for the embassy there. Since the invasion in 2003, the war has claimed the lives of 4,478 American service members.

Like I said the guy is cleaning up another man's mess.  Thank god we folded.


  1. Who is going to clean up Obama's mess as he destroys America's economy.

  2. "President Obama has embraced a view of government-directed temporary fixes and gimmicks. They don't work. He's destroyed the economy."
    -- Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, during Thursday night's Republican presidential debate on Fox News.
    The facts:
    -- The recession from which the United States is still struggling to recover began in December 2007, 13 months before Obama took office in January 2009. That's according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the nonprofit agency that tracks business cycles.

    -- By the fourth quarter of 2008, shortly after the banking crisis that resulted in the widely unpopular federal bailouts, the economy contracted by 8.9%, according to the Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic Analysis.
    -- The bureau found the recession officially ended in June 2009, five months after Obama took office. The economy has grown in every quarter since then, though barely in the past six months, according to the Commerce Department.
    -- The unemployment rate, a more direct concern to the average American, has remained high after shooting up from 5.5 % in December 2007 to a peak of 10.1 % in October 2009. It was 7.8 % when Obama took office, and it has held at 9.1 % for the past two months.
    The verdict:
    False. The Obama administration's much-criticized efforts to revive the economy may not have lived up to their billing, but statistics show the bulk of the damage was done before he was sworn in.

  3. We want president bush back. screw obama...i want joel goldman as my president. bitros as vice president.
