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

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.

Also reming everyone that two hours after Obama said we’re in negotiations with the Taliban, the Taliban murdered 6 people.

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.

“I’ll have more flexibility after my election.” That one statement said loud and clear what side Obama’s bread is buttered on - and it’s not the American people’s side.

Anyone who’s seen him throwing out the opening pitch at a baseball game KNOWS he’s no Rambo. He should stick to hanging kitchen curtains.
