Now Obama got us out of Iraq. McCain was prepared to stay 100 years. We are getting out of Afghanistan and I think Romeny would have kept us there longer but he would have got us out too.
Obama did not get us out of Iraq. The Status of Forces agreement was made under Bush for the deadline. Obama tried to extend it but the Iraqis said no "get out." Obama had to comply. I have family that make this claim and it's just BS.
