Politician Reax

John McCain: “I’m not surprised that he wouldn’t give George Bush credit, that’s just in the DNA of the individual apparently.”

David Axelrod: “[Obama] is gratified to be winding the war down as he promised and doing it in the appropriate way.”

Lindsey Graham: “The speech didn’t emphasize enough… that combat operations may have ended, but Iraq isn’t over by any stretch of the imagination.”

Mitch McConnell: “By adopting the Bush administration’s plan… the President has enabled us and the Iraqis to build on the gains our troops have made.”

Joe Lieberman: “The remarkable turnaround in Iraq…  would not have been possible without the courageous decision of President Bush to launch the surge in 2007”

Dennis Kucinich: “We need to dispense with the fiction, though, that this announcement in any way diminishes our financial or resource commitment to Iraq.”
