  •  He withdrew ONLY on the Bush time table and then.. (2+ / 0-)

    only after Iraq refused to extend the US troop authorization.  AND he has refused to allow the Authorization of Force in Iraq be overturned.

    We still have tens of thousands of troops on the boarder of Iraq, thousands STILL in Iraq "training" Iraqi troops.

    It is not isolationist to not deploy troops to other nations and bomb them.  Isolationist is to refuse to trade with other nations, not offer humanitarian aid, and bomb other nations for not doing as the US tells them to.

    What Obama said he would do was talk to other nations, not bomb them.  he was going to pull out troops as soon as he got in office.  he was going to end the war on terror.  he was going to make the US respected again.  Instead he became Bush III.

    Stupid question hour starts now and ends in five minutes.
