President George W. Bush, over the years, has been accused of declaring victory in Iraq prematurely in 2003. Did he really?

The exact words President Bush spoke on the deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln on May 1st, 2003 were as follows:

“Our mission in Iraq continues ...we do not know the day of final victory, but we have seen the turning of the tide”.

All his detractors continually point to the banner with the phrase “Mission Accomplished” as his premature declaration of victory. That banner was made and placed on the ship by the naval brass on the USS Abraham Lincoln and not President Bush.

Compare that with Obama's phrase of the “Summer of Recovery”. Now, that's a bogus claim, it should be called the “Summer of Discontent”. It seems that Obama is standing on the deck of the USS Clueless!

Famous last words, on the Iraq War, "The surge won't work" (Barack Hussein Obama); "The war is lost" (Harry Reid). And the "pinhead" liberals continue to slime Pres. Bush for something he never said. As Albert Einstein once said, "If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts". Did he have the liberal Democrats in mind when he said that?

BHO was always against the U.S. Military. Sen. Obama, with a donation of nearly $1 million, and a son of Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi were among the biggest contributors to the presidential campaign of controversial Kenyan leader Raila Odinga.
Our troops respond to Pres. Bush with respect not because they are forced to, as in BHO's case.

9/11 was horrible and President Bush acted accordingly. We must not forget the Victims and their Families.
