Obama Ended the War in Iraq

Jake Tapper reports from President Obama’s big-donor fundraiser in Philly yesterday:

He criticized Democrats who complain that “the health care plan didn’t have a public option,” or say to him, “’You ended the war in Iraq but haven’t completely finished the Afghan war yet.’”

His message to them: “Folks wake up! This is not some academic exercise. As Joe Biden put it, Don’t compare us to the Almighty, compare us to the alternative.”

50,000 troops in harm’s way and the “war is over?”
