Frank LoBiondo "thrilled" with Obama's Iraq withdrawal plan

The Philly Inquirer has a quote from Rep. LoBiondo (NJ2) on the President Obama's Iraq withdrawal plan:

Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R., N.J.), a supporter of the war, said he was "thrilled" with the drawdown plan.

"The president is leaving troops there, which is a good sign," Lobiondo said. "He understands the situation could change."


Though he supports this plan, it seems to me from this quote LoBiondo would prefer to stay in Iraq forever, but of course his voting record already said that. Still, it seems Obama's compromise withdrawal plan has won a lot of bipartisan support.
