Obamaís latest Hail Mary: taking credit for bin Ladenís death
BizPacReview.com ^ | May 2, 2012 | Michael Dorstewitz

Posted on 05/02/2012 3:51:09 AM PDT by cap10mike

wrote my first commentary for BizPac Review a year ago out of a sense of frustration with the TV media. I awoke last May 2 to the news that Osama bin Laden was killed by a U.S. Navy SEAL team. The details were scant but nonetheless fascinating.

He was killed on May 1 at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. This area is the home of the country’s equivalent to our U.S. Military Academy at West Point. His body was removed and his wives were taken in, along with his papers and records. Fox News finally reported that our intelligence agencies eventually located bin Laden’s whereabouts through a tiny sliver of information gleaned from a Guantanamo Bay prisoner four years earlier. I thought to myself, Wow, enhanced interrogation works. I expected the newscaster to echo my thoughts. He didn’t.

After an hour of listening to the TV reporters’ failure to connect the dots, I sent an email to everyone on my contact list.

Obama is trying to out hawk the traditionally hawkish Republicans, thus keeping the eyes off his dismal domestic record.

If Mitt wants to get in the dirt with him on foreign policy all he need do is remind everyone about Obama unilaterally scrapping the missile defense shield that would have protected Eastern Europe, allowed our most advanced stealth technologies to fall into enemy hands, advocates overt homosexual behavior in the military, leaked Israeli military secrets to the world in order to scuttle their plans to stop an Islamonazi nuke etc etc etc.

Reminds me of the old Soviet Union where they gave out Hero medals for shoveling the most sh$t in your commune.

Zero should give himself a medal and maybe a star.

It well may have been a symbolic ‘payback’ for his (Bin Laden) going against the Soviets in the 80s. It did take place right around commie May Day. Obama obviously has no problem with terrorists attacking the Pentagon or other US military facilities. He launched his political career in the living room of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. His “spiritual adviser” of twenty plus years said we deserved 911: “America’s chickens...are coming home...TO ROOST”. He’s currently bending over backwards to strengthen the Russians. KGB Putin wants to bring back the Soviet Union.

Har har har Obama, the idiot is gonna be end zone dancing on this every day until election time.

It would be totally ironic if UBL pulled a Blofeld.

But any way about it to me Obama earns no credit for any of it.

A cute headline appeared in the Los Angeles Daily News yesterday. “Obama defends decision to kill Bin Laden”. As if any Republican would object to that or that he was under attack for the decision. No, it is just a bit of cheap theater designed to keep the Bin Laden kill in the news.

It’s simply not believable that no other C in C would have ordered the kill, which makes the attempt to gain politically almost laughable, and unseemly.

The cool dude displays here an appalling lack of humility, it makes him smaller than the office, and will soon become cringe-worthy if he persists.

Have you noticed that the Democrats aren’t using any of the talking points that we routinely heard during the Bush administration? - “He’s antagonizing AlQaeda with his dangerous rhetoric”, “Bragging about Bin Laden’s killing will only serve as a recruiting tool for the terrorists”, “he’s talking like a gang leader”, etc.

“I’ll have more flexibility after my election.” That one statement said loud and clear what side Obama’s bread is buttered on

Open Mic Catches Obama Asking Medvedev for Space on Missile Defense
March 26, 2012

"In a private conversation about the planned U.S.-led NATO missile defense system in Europe, President Barack Obama asked outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for space on the issue.

This is my last election,” Obama told Medvedev. “After my election I have more flexibility.”

“I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir,” Medvedev said, referring to incoming President Vladimir Putin."

http://fox8.com/2012/03/26/open-mic-catches-obama-asking-medvedev-for-space-on-missile-defense/
__________________________________________________

Obama was talking with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev when neither of them realized that their conversation was being picked up by microphones. Here is what they said:

Obama: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space.”

Medvedev: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you ...”

Obama: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”

Medvedev: “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”

“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” That statement tells us much about the president’s mindset.

The specific mention of missile defense is worrisome enough. Mr. Obama has retreated from the missile defense plan that was negotiated with European allies during the George W. Bush administration. Apparently, he is signaling Moscow that he intends to retreat further. The clear implication from the president’s comments is that he cannot tell the American people before the election what he plans to do after the election.

In addition, there is the phrase “on all these issues,” implying more is at stake than just missile defense.”

BOTH OBAMA AND OSAMA HAVE
FRIENDS WHO BOMBED THE PENTAGON

_________________________________________________________

From HumanEvents.com, April 29, 2008:
"By all accounts, he [Obama friend and associate, Bill Ayers] was a ferocious, violent, revolutionary Marxist in his halcyon days as a Weatherman leader. He and his Weatherman bombers were enamored of Ho Chi Minh, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-tung -- indeed, all the murderous heroes on the Left. Referring to the Weatherman members in August 1969, he said (according to the FBI): 'We’re revolutionary Communists.'

He got off on the group’s multiple explosions, too, and discusses them rather lovingly in his memoir.

Ideal Bombing Weather:
'Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon,' he writes (although he concedes it was really a group effort). 'The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.' (p. 256 in the 2003 edition.)

BOTH OBAMA AND OSAMA HAVE
FRIENDS WHO WANTED TO BOMB FORT DIX

From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
March 6, 1970: "three members of the Weather Underground accidentally killed themselves in a Manhattan townhouse while attempting to build a powerful bomb they had intended to plant at a social dance in Fort Dix, New Jersey -- an event that was to be attended by U.S. Army soldiers. Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plot been successfully executed."
http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6808

"The bomb was intended to be planted at a non-commissioned officer's dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.
The bomb was packed with nails to inflict maximum casualties upon detonation."

2007 Fort Dix attack plot

A group of six radical Islamist[1] men, allegedly plotting to stage an attack on the Fort Dix military base in New Jersey, United States, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on May 7, 2007. They were subsequently charged with planning an attack against U.S. soldiers. The alleged aim of the six men was said to be to "kill as many soldiers as possible".[2] Their trial began on October 20, 2008. [3]

Opening arguments were presented on October 20, 2008.
Assistant U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick said the defendants were inspired by jihad saying "Their motive was to defend Islam. Their inspiration was Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.

"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World — where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' — both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

"As a gesture of solidarity, the Vietnamese who [Bernardine] Dohrn met in Budapest presented her with a ring made from an American aircraft shot down over North Vietnam.

Why do you desecrate Mary with your title?

I know you are using an expression that no longer truly intends such translation, but nonetheless it still offends the owner of the name, like God Dam it, or Jesus F ing Christ, son of a B, Mother F, ..... a slam of God, a sinless perrson, a mother.

And I offend Him as well when I do that - and it’s a hard one for me too in moments.

I ask that the title be modified, Thank you.
