2011 Withdrawal of Troops from Iraq

It seems to me there have been an incredible number of bald-faced lies pushed by the Republicans in the last 8 years. I’m still waiting, for example, for the establishing of the death panels that they assured us were being created by Obamacare. and waiting for the dramatic increase in the death rate of older people because Obamacare would deny them health care. Neither is going to happen, of course, because both were outright lies.

Another thing that puzzles me is the blaming of Obama for pulling our troops out of Iraq at the end of 2011. Do they not care to remember that Obama was honoring — at the firm insistence of the Iraqi government — the agreement made between Iraq and the US in 2008, signed by Bush?

Like most Americans, I’m pretty frustrated by Washington but of this I am sure: The absolute disregard for integrity by the republicans and especially by donny trump has been a major part of the problem and is most certainly not part of the solution.

When McConnell is asked three times by Chuck Todd, Were trump’s remarks about the judge racist? and McConnell will only say he disagrees with trump on the matter, then you know there is no moral courage left in the Republican party.

They are covering America with shame.
