Skip to comments.Obama Trumpets Killing of Bin Laden, and Critics Pounce (NY Times is mad at The Kenyan)
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.

All of you are fired....... oh wait, with this economy that already happened.
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.
What ‘Gutsy Call’?: CIA Memo Reveals Admiral Controlled bin Laden Mission
Show the body, or it didn’t happen.
Obama highlights his war crimes in an attempt to get re-elected?
That’s rich. :)
Liberals are pissed that their hero Bin Laden is dead. Not sure who liberals worship more, Obama or Bin Laden
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.
The Kenyan: “It’s my kill.”
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.
“commander zero” couldn’t not take out osama. Too many people knew that we knew where he was.
Obama been laudin' killing the wrong man? Is that why the Nytimese are mad? They wanted it to be a certain former occupant of the White House? Is that why they are mad?
They would like it if he bragged about how many US soldiers he’s wounded and killed with his pro-Islam rules of engagement operation.
They pulled him from the golf course and threw a jacket on him for a photo op
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.
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
Or words to that effect.
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.
If the RNC had any brains or guts, they'd be advertising this stuff.

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.
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): 'Were revolutionary Communists.'
He got off on the groups 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.)
Article: Obama and His Weatherman Friends
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."
"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 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". Their trial began on October 20, 2008. 
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.
Thank God photos and videos can’t be fabricated via means of some kind of miraculous computer software technology.
I’d sure hate for voters to get fooled by Obeyme.
I like that!
President Bill Clinton praising Mr. Obamas fortitude,....Because Clinton did NOT have the same fortitude when asked THREE times if Bin Ladin could be fired upon.
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.
“hold the trial two blocks from Ground Zero!”
Yes, and all catering would come from the Victory Mosque. Free tours of the monument to islamic triumph for the jury!
But didn’t the seal team die in a chopper attack/crash in Afghanistan sometime later?
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.
The only way obama got bin laden is if the latter died from blunt force trauma from a nine iron on the 17th hole.
The only thing nobama has tried to kill is Free America.
the seal team is all dead, crashed, executed in an ambush
And I though Obama was a peaceful man. Didn’t he win the Nobel Peace Prize?
“Did Obama eat Osama’s dog, too?”
That pic is funny. Do you mind if I borrow it? :)
