Joe Biden's fantasy world

Joe Biden went on Larry King last night and told us that Iraq could be "one of the great achievements of this administration." This administration? In the fantasy world in which Joe Biden, and perhaps Barack Obama, are the stars of a saga of heroic battles for peace, justice and some other stuff like that what has happened in Iraq is a credit to "this administration."

How about the previous administration whose policies in Iraq Biden and Barack Obama had endlessly criticized and voted against. They both opposed the surge that brought about the situation that Biden now wants to take credit for. And Biden's big proposal was his dopey idea to divide Iraq into three separate territories. And if Obama had had his way, we would have pulled our troops out of there before Bush's administration was even over. The only credit that "this administration" deserves is for not messing too much with the much improved situation that Bush fought to bring to Iraq.

As Andrew Malcolm, who highlighted Biden's idiocy, mordantly remarks,
Biden did not elaborate on what all the administration's other "great achievements" were so far.
