Because he’s so different than Bush…

He’s reaffirming his vow to do what Bush planned…

President Barack Obama renewed his vow Tuesday to have all U.S. combat troops out of Iraq by next August…

The U.S. negotiated a status of forces agreement in the latter months of the Bush administration which commits the United States to having all combat troops out of the country by the end of August”

Of course, pay close attention to the specific words… “combat troops”

“all other forces — counterinsurgency and support troops — gone by the end of 2011.”

And please forget that in the run-up to the Democratic nomination he promised to have the troops out by the end of 2009.
