Obama Trumpets Killing of Bin Laden, and Critics Pounce (NY Times is mad at The Kenyan)
NY Times ^ | 4/27/12 | PETER BAKER and MICHAEL D. SHEAR

Posted on 04/27/2012 8:38:38 PM PDT by jimbo123

Presidents running for re-election typically boast of programs they created, people they helped or laws they signed. They talk about rising test scores or falling deficits or expanding job rolls. President Obama is increasingly taking the unusual route of bragging about how he killed a man.

I never thought I’d hear myself say this but, to our Dear Leader’s credit, the killing of Osama is really all he has to run on. Granted he simply continued to follow Bush’s initiatives, but he does get credit since he’s the President.

Unfortunately for our Dear Leader, nobody gives a cr*p when the economy stinks, unemployment is still through the roof, home values continue to fall, a record number are on food stamps etc. They’re grasping at straws.

Well we all know he fine-tuned the previous administration’s misguided efforts and personally orchestrated the assault on the OBL compound.

He had the cohones to say “ Yeah, ok, I guess. Where, again?”

He’d shown this great personal strength before when the Seals had pirates in tow behind a co-opted vessel.

Positively Churchillian, this CINC.

Killing obl is a good thing imo. The spine to do it came from nowhere near the white hut though. If it did it was for all the wrong reasons.

When dear reader first came to power, Dems were making noises about bailing out the newspapers. I wonder if the newspapers, like the NY Times, expected a payoff from their hero.

It is SO inhumane and violent to shot holes in the head of Osama. What a shame!

Why didn't Obama put Osama on trial?

Give him a chance to defend himself! What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? What about the concept of fairness?

Give Osama a free prayer rug, a box of Fruit Loops and lavish some government lawyers on him for $500 million. Then hold the trial two blocks from ground zero in NYC!

That would be shown the world how tolerant and kind we American are! See, we don't mean any harm to all the millions of peace loving Muslims who would adore us if it weren't for that idiot Bush who calls them bad names like terrorists.

I hear that AQ has found his body at the bottom of the ocean and figured out how to re-animate him.

“Not sure who liberals worship more, Obama or Bin Laden”

As Ted Kennedy said:

“Osama bin Bama
a-rama-rama
Bahama mama”

Or words to that effect.

I'll believe the “bottom of the ocean” story when I see the Video and a Seal Team Member tells me it happened.

I'm nor conspiracy nut, but I don't trust one thing coming out of Pharaoh Obama’s Dog Eating mouth.

Patience. I have previously speculated, back when Bin Laden was killed and they wouldn’t release photos or video, that we will be treated to the photos and/or video just in time for the 2012 election.

Make no mistake about it, they will milk this for everything they can when the timing is right, and it’s getting closer. That is why they are beginning to bring up the killing as they are tempting the right to once again call for the photos and/or video so they will “have” to release it, and release it they will, specifically for maximum impact on the upcoming election.

The liberals are mad that Bin Laden is dead and Obama is taking credit for it.

Ironic, isn't it, that it happened right around May Day. Probably was a symbolic payback for his going against the Soviets in the 80s. Obama was a staunch supporter of the USSR during his 80s college days. And of course today he's doing everything under the Sun to appease his pal "comrade", KGB Putin. Obama clearly has no problem with anti-American terrorists. He launched his political career in the living of two communist terrorists who had previously planted bombs at the Capital, Pentagon and numerous military facilities and police stations (Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn). Their group, the Weather Underground, attempted to kill scores of military personnel at Fort Dix with bombs loaded with shrapnel.

Not sure who liberals worship more, Obama or Bin Laden

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.

I`ve been thinking that, too. So,he was quickly killed, dragged to a chopper, sprinkled with whatever sh*t muslims sprinkle on their sacred dead (and he IS what counts for a “saint” in muzzieworld), gave him a burial with honors at sea that the families of dead sailors have to wait months for.. but we the children aren`t allowed to see any pics because “it`s not in our best interest.”

And oh yeah, stories are now cropping up that he wasn`t buried at sea after all..

Something stinks out loud on this one.

Reading the comments below the article is quite illuminating.
Seemingly half of the great majority defending their president have no more argument than ‘the other guy would behave the same.’
It’s an unprovable assertion and does nothing to defend Obama from the point of the article. Poor little pretentious liberals. Their comments and the lack of substance contained within them betray their anxiety.
