BPR Quote of the Day: Iraq Promise Kept…….Almost Three Years Late

“I will promise you this: that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do.  I will get our troops home.  We will bring an end to this war.  You can take that to the bank.”

Barack Obama

on the presidential campaign trail, Oct. 27, 2007

Obama adjusted that promise in 2008, vowing to get American troops out by August 2008. If you take either of those promises to the bank, good luck getting anything back.
