Victory in Iraq and other little hypocrisies

Joe Biden recently declared that "the victory in Iraq may be this administration's crowning achievement."

Obama has often times rationalized his failure to turn around the economy as the result of Bush's terrible economic policies (which he continued with tart and stimulus). He blames Bush for America still being in terrible times economically.

The right wing claim that victory in Iraq is the result of Bush's policies and Obama is just there to clean up and take credit. They blame Obama for the economy as he is president and he owns the economy and his policies and has had more than enough time to put his own stamp on the economy.

In the last years of Bush's term the right wing was still blaming Clinton for all sorts of problems but taking credit where they could.

Did we really win in Iraq? When is the parade?
