VP Lauds Obama’s Audacious Killing of bin-Laden
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 24 March 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 03/24/2012 10:03:45 AM PDT by John Semmens

Vice-President Joe Biden praised the killing of Osama bin-Laden, calling it “the most audacious plan of the past 500 years.”

Asked about other possible contenders for “most audacious plan”–the D-Day invasion of Normandy during WWII or Washington’s Christmas Day attack on Hessian troops in 1776—Biden replied “no contest.”

“The raid that killed bin-Laden was carried out without any casualties for our side,” Biden pointed out. “The same can’t be said for any other action taken by any other president. Let’s not forget that Allied Forces had 10,000 casualties on D-Day and 2500 men were killed. That’s a bit of a blemish on that accomplishment.”

“Bin-Laden was hiding,” Biden said. “No one knew for sure where he was. Normandy was an obvious target. Everyone knew the Nazis were there. And don’t get me started about the Hessians. They were drunk from throwing a loud Christmas party. Finding them and whipping them was a cinch.”

“Taking out bin-Laden was televised to the White House,” Biden recalled. “President Obama was virtually there with the Seals as the mission unfolded. Roosevelt played a more remote part in the D-Day event. And Washington wasn’t even president when he led the Christmas raid.”

“Finally, the level of risk was incomparable,” Biden asserted. “Even if D-Day had turned into a disaster it wouldn’t have been Roosevelt’s first. Anyone remember Pearl Harbor? And Washington had a pretty mediocre war record prior to that raid. In short, neither one of them was putting a perfect record on the line. No, the reward for guts clearly has to go to President Obama. I think voters will see that and reelect him in November.”

I see now that it’s satire.

well, if obama would have pulled it off himself he could clam a personal victory. I did not hear that happen. He put American troops in danger and took the glory for himself. Biden, is just up to his usual hysterical antics.

Yes, but only slightly so. Therein lies the genius.

Another good one, John!

It’s become obvious that some of Joe’s hair plugs were drilled way too deep.

This is semi-satire, but the really frightening thing is that the first sentence really did come out of Joe Biden’s pie hole!

It’s incredible how the ministry of propaganda kept going on and on about President Bush and his “Bushisms,” but quote for quote, I can’t think of a politician in history who has said more incredibly stupid things but not only gotten a pass from the ministry of propaganda, but they wax rhapsodic over him affectionately like a dearly loved uncle.

Being on your ping list is a double-edged sword, John. On the one hand, I appreciate not missing your commentary. But, on the other hand, I no longer have the chance of getting duped by you because your “fake but accurate news stoies” are so darn plausible.

But, on the third hand, it’s so much fun watching others get duped by you (as we all were when we first started reading your stuff).

SHEESH!!! That’s a head shakin’ chuckler if ever I’ve seen one John. Wouldn’t put any of that dialogue past Biden.

Good one again.

Thanks for the ping.

I don’t know how you keep hooking them. You must have numerous angler trophies, the way you keep reeling ‘em in. Thanks

PS I do have to double check some posts just to make sure it’s not you.

After I read the first sentence, I double-backed and checked the byline. Yup - satire. Biden couldn't be THAT stupid.

Could he?

Ah-HA!

This is not "semi-satire".

Okay, it was not what was displayed on Biden's teleprompter; however...

I suspect that it is a direct quote from one of the voices in Biden's head.

Another scary/funny column John.

The principal difficulty is that you read other stories these days which purport to be actual “news” and you start thinking they were all written by our worthy J.S.
