RUSH: Do you remember, ladies and gentlemen, way back last year, during the heat of the Democrat primaries, or the run-up to the primaries, I said the dirty little secret is, ‘If they win the White House, they’re not getting out of Iraq. They have no intention of getting out of Iraq and saddling themselves with defeat. It ain’t going to happen.’ Libs are starting to figure this out. There’s a story in the New Republic by Michael Crowley. ‘[S]ome Washington foreign policy mandarins insist this isn’t possible — that a total US withdrawal isn’t achievable and Obama knows it. That Obama, like Nixon, in fact has a secret plan not to end the war. ‘The classic storyline is that everyone wants to get out, but we’re not going to get out, and everyone’s going to be disappointed,’ says Derek Chollet, a former foreign policy adviser to John Edwards. Or, at least, that Obama’s speeches overstate the feasibility of a near-term Iraq exit. ‘Close to a pipe dream,’ says the Council on Foreign Relations’ Leslie Gelb. ‘I regard that as campaign rhetoric rather than serious policy.’ ‘Wildly unrealistic campaign rhetoric,’ scoffs The Washington Post editorial page. …

‘Superficially, Obama’s Iraq rhetoric makes his plan seem rather simpler than it is. His website states that Obama ‘will immediately begin to remove our troops from Iraq … and have all of our combat brigades out of Iraq within 16 months,” but it’s not possible, and the libs are starting to figure it out. The whole story, we’ll post the link to this at RushLimbaugh.com so you can read the whole thing. The bottom line is they have no intention of pulling out, and they got a secret plan, and it doesn’t spell out so much secret plan; but I can tell you what the secret plan is, whether it’s Hillary or Obama. Couple days after they’re inaugurated, a week, whatever it is, they’re going to suddenly discover that Bush had not told them the whole truth of the seriousness of the problem that we face — and Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are going to say Bush lied, or he withheld information. ‘We didn’t know how serious this was,’ and they’re going to become the biggest pro-war people in the world because they’re going to want victory for themselves. That’s how they’re going to pull themselves out of the fire that they’ve built around themselves, demanding defeat in Iraq.
