President Obama is one cool, calm and collected man. He puts his mind to a goal and works through the process until he reaches it. Just ask Osama bin Laden, Muammar al-Qaddafi and the others on Barack Obama's shrinking hit list.
Obama decided that today would be a good day to rock the world with another bombshell -- the end of the war in Iraq. In 2008, in the height of the presidential campaign, then-Senator Obama made a promise to give our military a new mission: ending the war in Iraq.
As the election unfolded, he reiterated this pledge again and again -- but cautioned that we would be "as careful getting out of Iraq as we were careless getting in."
Last year, the President made progress toward achieving that goal. He brought an end to the combat mission in Iraq, and through the course of the past 14 months, more than 100,000 troops have returned to their families.
Today, President proved himself to be a person of his word -- the war in Iraq will be over by the holidays.
I'm proud of my president ... how about you?
