No Class: Obama snubs Bush, praises himself
Washington Times ^ | 05/03/2011 | Staff

Posted on 05/03/2011 5:53:40 AM PDT by safetysign

It can be awkward when a dove tries to pass himself off as a war hero. From the tone of President Obama’s speech Sunday night, it’d be easy to conclude he was the one who came up with the idea that America should hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden. He also made it sound like he was the one who formulated the takedown plan. We can look forward in coming days to details of the actual operation, emphasizing Mr. Obama’s intimate involvement.

What a worthless POS. First in line to take credit for what the special operators pulled off. If it had gone south (think Desert One or Black Hawk Down) he would have claimed he didn’t know a thing about it.

NO Class and ALL Ass!

Then again, there are those of us that have called this kind of thing on the narcissistic little Marxist bastard from the git-go!

Our country will not be safe until we remove this cancer from our White House and that’s the plain truth.

After hearing Zer0's speech, you'd think Rambo Obama pulled the trigger himself.

Enough with his 'I deserve the credit' talk. Just give credit to the guys that pulled the triggers. Mr. I, I, I, me, me me, Obama remains the most unqualified president in American history. Taking credit for being in the right place at the right time while others did all the work just shows his sick ego peaking through the mask he wears.

The death of bin Laden has nothing to do with the core beliefs of this President or the entire liberal movement. I don't credit any liberal policy with this successful Seal Team operation.

All the piss-stream media girly-boys want to do is get little Barry re-elected via the bin Laden story, but it's way wrong and way to early for that. I'm sure you'll think up something else rather than portray him as a military hero to sway a propaganda-befuddled electorate.

But remember this, he's no Commander in Chief and taking credit for his being one is just wrong and sickening to most real Americans. Spin it all you want; it wasn't libs who were responsible for GITMO and enhanced interrogation that caught Osama. In 2010 Biden said on the Sunday morning talk shows that waterboarding does not work. So here's one time that Zer0 can announce to the country: ''Bush did it!'' The first thing this administration did was to go after the interrogators who got the information that we just used. Yes, this man has brought out such raw emotion that it is very hard to celebrate anything he does short of resigning.

4x

The trove of intelligence vacuumed up by Seal Team Six at the site - computers, cell phones, papers etc. - will turn up all sorts of interesting details about UBLs connections to the Pakistan military and ISI. I'll bet a lot of them are extremely nervous right about now.

Maybe, but I do know what they would be saying, for sure -

“war on terror’s over now”.

From 9/11 on they were singularly focused on treating this war as a criminal prosecution in which, once you capture or kill the criminal that perpetrated it, it’s all over.

I would, however, like to take a bottle of water on an airplane and not have my 6 yr old fondled for “security reasons”.

So.....just pondering....Did 0bama want this raid to happen the night before the Royal Wedding to upstage the nuptials to which he and the First Wookie were not invited and were very PO'ed about being snubbed?

But then his "team" tells him that the moonlight wasn't optimal for the operation?

" Argh! Well, we have to do something!"

Cue light bulb....DING!

"Hey, let's go watch a shuttle launch and steal all the press coverage that way!"

"That will show those f'ing Brits."

Boy is this right on. When you think about the thousands that have lost their lives in the fight against AQ and it’s fellow travelers, This pathetic show of ignorance is shocking. He made NO mention of the young people that have sacrificed EVERYTHING in this fight. NOT even thanking the CIA and SealTeam members that went into the murderers den to kill him.

Zero is a national embarrassment.

To expect classy behavior from Obama is the same as looking at a dog and expecting it to “quack.”

I hope no one expected anything else from the low class socialist agitator.

Last night while watching BOR at 8, the station cut away to his speech before the “bipartisan” dinner. I got sick and lost my dinner before I could switch channels to anything else. All I could see was this buffoon pumped up like a peacock...back to his usual sermon from the Mount glow. While I give him his due, he did pull this off but to not give any credit beyond his own self hyped importance is agravating.

Of course, the MSM is in full OAKM now (Obama Asskissing mode). Today’s news paper had an AP story that traced the identification of the couier to “some years ago” to keep any mention of Bush or the techniques employed to get the info out of the spotlight. I intend to celebrate Passover in 2013 when this cancer is gone from the scene and hopes it just passes over.

When I heard Obama going on and on and on about what all HE did, I thought of BJ Clinton saying he was going to grab a rifle and get in a ditch to protect Israel.

These guys have to run fast to get to the head of the parade to claim they are leading it.

I wonder the validity of the several threads from 'the Insider' who says that Obama had to be brought kicking and screaming into this.

From this moment on, BO owes his presidency to the SEALS who saved it on Sunday with their courage and skill. Had it turned into a Carter hostage-rescue debacle, his presidency would be over.

I’ll bet he had to change his shorts after that viewing session in the war room.

The kenyan had nothing to do with the OBL kill except to say “ok, pull the trigger”. The moment he walked into the WH he defunded intel and military and loathed anything that protected us. This is strictly political. He’s sorry he had to go after a fellow muzzie. He’ll get a dead cat bounce out of this.

As Rush said...”GHWB had a 90% approval after the Persian Gulf and still lost to Clinton 2 years later”. The kenyan is at a 48% approval or less and has almost 2 years to screw up, which he will. Gas at $5.50, groceries through the roof, unemployment at 20% will be the deciding factor. Killing OBL is nothing to run a campaign on.

The only people that still love Obama are the libs, the lame-stream media and union thugs. The rose-colored glasses have been knocked off independent voters and they see Obama for what he is: an empty-suit incompetent blow-hard.

Yep, they got that right. This administration blames everything under the sun on Bush administration. But something that gained traction when Bush was president and allowed interrogation methods to glean valuable information that led to this mission, not a word.

What if Obama had gone through with closing Gitmo right after he was elected. Would this mission have every come to be?

Lets look at the facts:

Bush went to war to get this SOB over Democrat/Obama’s objections.

Bush caught KSM and put him in Gitmo over Democrat/Obama’s objections.

Bush water boarded KSM, which eventually led to the information that led us to OBL over Democrat/Obama’s objection's.

Bush created the kill team to go after OBL and probably used warantless wiretaps to help in the process over Democrat/Obama objections.

Then Obama came along and said... oh! you found him! well let me think about this for awhile.... then several months later he said GO!

And now Obama pats himself on the back!

ROFL

Don’t hold your breath waiting for Obama or Big Lib Media to give Bush credit for anything. Obviously, Obama planned, equipped, and probably guided the Seals step by step including when and how to pull the triggers on their weapons. The Seals and the CIA most likely didn’t have any idea about how to find and kill Obama without the great knowledge and inspiration of Fearless Leader Obama. None of these vacuous churls will give Bush and the Gitmo intel the credit they hugely deserve in getting OBL.

Cool! I hadn’t thought about all the good info they’d get from not blowing OBL’s house up. A lot of muslim bigshots are deciding which wife to hide behind right about now. Preparing themselves for the 72 virgins in Hell that will turn out to be 13 year old boys with pimples.

Here’s what the terrorists say when they finally go to Hell to live with their master forever:
“This is a terrible place! Why do I have to go to the worst part?”
“Oh my lack of goodness! Look, there is a place where they continuously burn the quran!....right next to the place where they print them”

While I cringed as I heard the speech and repeated use of the I word, I have to give him credit for one thing. By acting as if he were the responsible party, he has now made himself the number one priority target of terrorists. This “super smart” president has made his entire family targets for life by his boasting and attempts to look decisive. Ask yourself, how smart is that? My condolences to the Secret Service teams that are and will be assigned to protect him. With Biden as the number 2 in the chain of command, this is just another reason to make sure they are not re-elected in 2012.

The only credit zero deserves is for NOT dismantling the Bush/Cheney machine that made this possible.

All zero had to do was say “go.”

If zero had kept all his campaign promisses, this operation could not have happened.
