Republicans have different reasons for disliking Barack Obama's radical decision to do the thing George Bush signed an agreement to do. (4:49)

OUT.

NEXT STORY.

>> SO TODAY I CAN REPORT THAT

AS PROMISED, THE REST OF OUR

TROOPS IN IRAQ WILL COME HOME

BY THE END OF THE YEAR.

AFTER NEARLY NINE YEARS,

AMERICA'S WAR IN IRAQ WILL BE

OVER.

>> Jon: IT'S OVER.

FIND ME...

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

WOOO!

YES.

IT'S OVER.

IT'S FINALLY OVER.

OH, MAN.

LET ME TELL YOU THIS.

WOO-HOOO.

>> THEY EITHER FAILED TO DO IT

BY VIRTUE OF INEPTITUDE OR

THEY DECIDED THAT IT WASN'T

THAT IMPORTANT POLITICALLY OR

OTHERWISE.

>> THIS WAS A FAILURE BY THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO CLOSE

THE DEAL.

>> I THINK IT'S A SERIOUS

MISTAKE.

>> THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN A

FAILURE WHEN IT COMES TO

FOREIGN POLICY.

>> Jon: BRINGING SOLDIERS

HOME.

THEN THEY'RE GOING TO COME AND

TAKE OUR JOBS.

YEAH, WHAT IS OBAMA DOING

PULLING OUR TROOPS OUT OF IRAQ

BY THE END OF THE YEAR 2011.

WHO'S STUPID IDEA WAS THAT?

>> WE'RE HERE AT THE REQUEST

OF THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT, THE

ELECTED GOVERNMENT.

THERE ARE CERTAIN BENCHMARKS

THAT WILL BE MET SUCH AS

TROOPS OUT OF THE CITIES BY

JUNE OF '09.

THEN THERE'S A BENCHMARK AT

THE END OF THE AGREEMENT.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT.

THE STATUS OF FORCES AGREEMENT

BUSH SIGNED WITH THE IRAQIS.

I WONDER WHAT WAS THE

BENCHMARK AT THE END OF THAT

AGREEMENT THAT HE SIGNED WITH

THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT.

HERE IT IS.

ALL THE UNITED STATES FORCES

SHALL WITHDRAW NO LATER THAN

DECEMBER 31, 2011.

OOPS.

WHY DIDN'T THE POINT OF THAT

SPEECH GET MORE COVERAGE?

TODAY WE ARE REPORTING NEWS

THAT THE AMERICAN FORCES

PLEDGED TO LEAVE IRAQ BY--

SHOE!

DIFFERENT PEOPLE HAVE

DIFFERENT REASONS FOR

DISLIKING OBAMA'S RADICAL

DECISION TO DO THE THING

GEORGE BUSH SIGNED AN

AGREEMENT TO DO.

>> IF YOU LOOK AT EVERY TIME

WE HAVE DEPOSED A DICTATOR,

THE UNITED STATES HAS ALWAYS

LEFT TROOPS BEHIND TO BE ABLE

TO ENFORCE THE FRAGILE PEACE.

>> Jon: YOUR SEASON IS BUT WE

NEVER LEAVE COUNTRIES WE'VE

INVADED.

YOU MUST THEN BE HAPPY ABOUT

THE WAY THINGS WENT IN LIBYA.

WE GOT RID OF THE DICTATOR

WITHOUT EVER COMMITTING GROUND

FORS.

>> I OPPOSED THE PRESIDENT

PUTTING US INTO WAR IN LIBYA.

ONE THING WE SHOULD HAVE

LEARNED IN THE LAST 12 YEARS

IS THAT ONCE WE ARE INVOLVED

IN A FOREIGN INVOLVEMENT, IN A

FOREIGN ENTANGLEMENT, IT'S

VERY DIFFICULT TO GET OUT.

IT'S USUALLY AT A GREAT PRICE.

>> Jon: AND I RESENT THIS

PRESIDENT HELPING TO DEPOSE

QADDAFI WITHOUT THE

COMPLICATIONS AND COSTS OF A

NEVER-ENDING OCCUPATION.

IT'S FRANKLY UNAMERICAN.

I WON'T STAND FOR IT.

BACHMANN'S OCCUPY WHAT ARE YOU

TALKING ABOUT STREET PROTESTS

OVER OUR PULLOUT FROM IRAQ IS

AT LEAST MORE WELCOME THAN THE

BALLS OF SENATORS McCAIN AND

GRAHAM.

I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT MENTAL

IMAGE.

>> WELL I THINK IT'S A SERIOUS

MISTAKE.

I'M HERE IN THE REGION.

YES, IT IS VIEWED IN THE

REGION AS A VICTORY FOR THE

IRANIANS.

I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANY

DOUBT THERE.

>> THEY ENDD IRAQ POORLY

FUMBLED THE BALL INSIDE OF THE

TENT.

IT WAS HIS JOB, THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION'S JOB TO END

THIS WELL.

THEY FAILED.

>> Jon: YOU SEE IT WAS OUR JOB

TO START IT BADLY.

WE DID THAT.

WE WERE (BEEP) IDIOTS.

HIS JOB IS TO FINISH IT WELL.

THAT'S JUST HOW THINGS GO.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

YOU KNOW, SETTLE DOWN.

FOR THE GUYS WHO BEAR A GOOD

AMOUNT OF RESPONSIBILITY

FORGETTING US INTO THIS (BEEP)

TO GO OUGHT WALDORF ON THE

EXIT, IT'S JUST LIKE THE

CAPTAIN OF THE EXXON VALDEZ

STANDING AROUND ALASKA GOING

YOU'RE SCRUBBING THE OIL OFF

THOSE BIRDS ALL WRONG.

YOU SHOULD BE USING STEEL WOOL

AND AJAX.

I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU ARE

SCREWING UP THE ENVIRONMENT

LIKE THIS.

FOR GOD'S SAKES IN LIKE THREE

DAYS OBAMA HAS TAKEN US DOWN

FROM THREE WARS TO ONE.

IS THAT WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?

ARE AMERICAS HAWKS HAVING

EMPTY NEST SYNDROME?

I KNOW IT'S HARD WHEN THEY

GROW UP.

BUT LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE.

WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE AFGHANISTAN.

>> SPEAKING WITH A PRIVATE

PAKISTANI TELEVISION STATION

KARZAI SAID, QUOTE, THIS.

IF FIGHTING STARTS BETWEEN

PAKISTAN AND THE U.S., WE ARE

BESIDE PAKISTAN.

>> IF PAKISTAN IS ATTACKED AND

IF THE PEOPLE OF PAKISTAN NEED

AFGHANISTAN'S HELP,

AFGHANISTAN WILL BE THERE WITH

YOU.

>> Jon: AFGHANISTAN, THAT KID

IS GOING TO LIVE AT HOME
