The no-answers party

The blame game is the only game the GOP knows how to play. But for Republicans to try to blame Obama for the Iraq debacle is going overboard.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney started the Iraq war based on lies — to make money, period. He profited off the lives of Americans and Iraqis alike, not caring how many people died.
Iraqi leader Nouri al-Maliki was put in as prime minister by George W. Bush. Instead of uniting the country, al-Maliki used his power as a majority Shiite to abuse other religious sects in Iraq, just as Saddam did while in power as a Sunni.
Obama tried to leave troops in Iraq, but was unable to get a Status of Forces Agreement between the United States and Iraq. That resulted in the removal of U.S. Forces.
The GOP was more than happy to declare victory in Iraq soon after the initial assault. Remember “W” strutting around the deck of the aircraft carrier? Why don’t they take credit for the situation in Iraq now? If they want advisers in Iraq, why not send Cheney and Bush?
Has anyone in the GOP ever solved any problem? But they sure are good at making them.
