Burlingame After Meeting With Obama: He Turned His Back On Me
Real Clear Politics ^

Posted on 05/05/2011 1:18:03 PM PDT by Blue Turtle

Burlingame describes the encounter with Obama: "As a former attorney I know you can't tell the Attorney General what to do, he said, 'No, I can't.' But I said 'we -- that shouldn't stop you from giving your opinion. We wouldn't be here today if they hadn't done their jobs. Can't you at least give them your opinion.' And he said 'no I won't,' and he turned around and walked away."

She just laid into Obummer on Hannity for having a film and camera crew following him around consoling the families. Something tells me those photos will make their way to the public even though they are as disgusting as the dead OBL pic.

What a chump.

Debra Burlingame has been a real heroine of mine. SHe is eloquent in her writings and makes her points very well.

Obama is a big fat zero for cutting her off like that. Add another check in the “LOSE” column.

“Burlingame said she confronted Obama about Attorney General Eric Holder prosecuting the men who interrogated KSM, which may have produced intelligence leading us to bin Laden.”

Holy crap. Burlingame is the sister of the pilot that crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11. During her meeting with The Obummer today she told him that they wouldn’t be there today in observance of the killing of OBL if the men who interrogated Khalid Shaikh Mohammed hadn’t done their job. She asked him if he could give Attorney General Eric Holder a differing opinion about prosecuting those men for doing their jobs. He said he wouldn’t do that, turned his back on her and walked away.

Usama is not dead.

Why would the military kill an asset who is the Rosetta Stone of Islamic terrorism?

If you say he's dead and take him to a secure location where no one will ever see him again, you can torture him at your leisure and get information out of him for years without being harassed by Eric Holder.

I have faith that our military guys weren't dumb enough to kill the Islamic terrorist Rosetta Stone.

We all know he’s not a team player. That’s obvious by his glomming the credit for the OBL affair. It also sucks that according to Ms. Burlingame, Obama’s film crew was there. But was that the proper forum for her to make the Holder statement to him? Considering her high profile among the 9/11 victim’s families, there were many more appropriate opportunities to make her position known.
It’s obvious why President Bush didn’t attend.

No aid for Texas wildfires but...

President Barack Obama will visit El Paso on Tuesday, a White House official confirmed today.

The president will then travel to Austin later in the day for a fundraiser. Information on the purpose of his trip to El Paso was not immediately provided.

White House officials said they will release more details later. There is no word on whether the public can attend.

(Gee, I hope those people who lost everything are dems and really pizzed about getting crap in their faces.)

I was at the NYC rally in December 2009 in the freezing cold and met her. She was one of the speakers in front of 60 Centre Street protesting the KSM Trial in NYC.

We stood in the freezing rain and I remember that day like it was yesterday. if I knew how to post pics on this site I would. I still have them.

He did the same thing to John Lott back in his University of Chicago days. See Lott's explanation at the end of this excerpt:

Obama: “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.”
FR Link

John Lott: If I can just make one other comment about my interaction with Obama in Chicago?

Dave Bose: Oh yeah, sure.

John Lott: And that is when he made the statement about believe that people shouldn’t be able to own guns, I said, “Well, maybe we can get together for lunch and we can talk about it.”

John Lott: And because I knew he was also supportive of the Chicago suit against the gun makers.

John Lott: He just grimaced and turned around and walked away and that was the end of the conversation. And that’s the way many conversations went that I had with him and I believe just in general he really disliked talking to people that he regarded as conservatives.

Burlingame used to be a liberal. She changed her views after the attacks.

Obama’s actions of this week will continue to have a snow ball effect. That snow ball must keep moving until November 2012. He can be defeated, and it will be by his own actions.

I keep being haunted by an appearance by Romney on Hugh Hewitt two Fridays ago. He prefaced his criticism of the President by reciting what a nice and handsome guy he is, etc. etc. As we all know, he’s acutally an a**hole: Arrogant, vindictive, stubborn, self-centered, and dishonest. This incident just confirms that.

You have to be careful how you put that or the press will skewer you, but neither Romney, nor anyone else who concedes the “nice guy” issue out of the box is competent to wage a successful campaign against this joker.

Regardless of whether Obama can influence the decision to prosecute, or whether it is appropriate for him to do so, he certainly has the power to pardon them.

I've heard similar too from some of the wishy washy. I agree with your assessment. This man should be paid no compliments! Even if I considered him handsome, and I certainly DON'T, his destruction of our country would overshadow any favorable appearance qualities. It doesn't need to be said. Keep it to yourself, Romney et al. It reminds me of how Jindal comes out to give the rebuttal to Obama's first SOTU and spends the first few minutes praising Obama. Are these people blind and deaf?! We've got a terrible man as president. I've known about his character since 2006! I'm a highschool educated SAHM! These people are supposed to be the smart ones!

then the GOV of TX needs to open his mouth and call out the media for not mentioning this.

I am so sick and tired of the media, the likes of the today show,GMA, Oprah, Ellen and other crap which the idiots watch dictate what issues are talked about and how they cover for their messiah.

Call these biased scum bags out and do this every day, Ask them on live camera so they cannot edit why they refuse to cover this issue or that issue, why do they not tell their viewers about this issue or that issue.

This man goes to GZ for the first time but has been in that city getting money for two years.
He then goes to TX to get money but will not give fed money for the fires.
The list is endless and the good little no ball republicans shut the hell up and have the media dictate the terms

Hell I would not vote for Trump but he show that if you mention something then you get this biased disgusting corrupt scumbag media to mention issues on your terms

I am totally serious.

It explains the fact that they can't release a death photo, that's for sure.

The only question you need to ask is, "Is Usama worth more to the military dead or alive?"

Usama knows who everybody is and where they are.

Why chop off one head when you can chop them all off?

I suspect that there are informal ways that they can be made to feel, er, unwelcome.

Zero IS the Commander in Chief, and the military is nothing without its chain of command.

What would be her chances of every having a face to face conversation with the president? Hm? Zero?

Personally, I was unaware the the CIA interrogators were being prosecuted. If she hadn't discussed the issue with Obama ( I refuse to call him president) how many other Americans would still be as ignorant as I was.
