When Obama was running in 2008, he pledged that combat troops would depart Iraq at the rate of one brigade a month and would all be home within 16 months of his inauguration.
Once he was elected, he changed his mind and decided to stick with Bush's time schedule of withdrawing by August 2010. Now halfway through 2010, he has extended it to 2011 or beyond.
What is going on? Why are we still there?

Obama said what he thought people wanted to hear. Then he got the job and realized giving the people what they thought they wanted was going to create much worse than he or 'they' (the people) anticipated in the theory stages of their plan.
Exactly! You see, ALL of Obama's "experience" is in THEORY...until his current job title, he never had to actually see things through--he never stuck around long enough to see his ideas fall apart, or to test his hypothesis'! LOL
See this is where having a president with actual real life experience--particularly military experience, or at least a strong knowledge of military history (you know, what has worked well in the past) would have come in handy. But, I digress....

Only Obama is allowed to change his mind. He won't admit he lied, he won't admit he was wrong.
