As a Vietnam vet, and a supporter of the 2004 swift boat campaign against Kerry, Obama, giving himself all the credit for the killing of OBL, makes me sick. I will fully support the SEALS.
“Swift Boating” means telling the truth about scumbag ‘Rats?
Forget Swift-boating. I say Zer0 should be keel-hauled.
They say Swiftboat as if it were a bad thing and that couldn’t be further from the truth. The SBVfT were combat veterans from both sides of the political divide, interested in setting the record straight for the honor of their service. God Bless them for their service to our Country, first in Vietnam and more recently on the Homefront, still cognizant of their oath.
The lowest, most disgraced SEAL has more class than the entire collection of the Cretin-in-Chief and his West Wing Clown Show of Felon/Cretins.
If Obama had a shred of decency and integrity, he would make a public televised statement that he deserves very little of the credit, that he was just the sitting president at the time, and the Navy SEALS and the attached supporting units deserve all the credit.
The dead members of SEAL Team 6 are all ex-SEAL’s, too. They paid the price of defiance.
As a Swift Boater, you had the luxury of speaking from relative safety back then. This is the Chicago Machine you’d be up against now, plus a fully fanatical devoted media and Black Panther stormtroopers.
Too little is being made of the fact that B Hussein handed operational control to Pannetta, who passed it on to Rear Admiral McRaven, so that if anything went wrong, B Hussein would be two steps removed from failure. As my vet says, “Brave, Puppy, brave!”
And by “Swift-Boating” I assume they mean “Tell the Truth.” The biggest open secret in DC is that Zero was out of the loop on OBL, it was Panetta’s call.
