Obama Gives Himself a Shout Out While Addressing Troops: ‘We’ve Got Me In the House’
theblaze.com ^ | 5-2-12 | Jonathon Seidl

Posted on 05/02/2012 7:08:38 AM PDT by Texas Eagle

While addressing soldiers at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, the president started giving shout outs to different military units “in the house,” each time eliciting cheers from the crowd. But after calling out a couple of those names, he quickly turned to evoking his own: “And we’ve got me in the house.”

They cheered.

The Washington Free Beacon captured the moment:

Obama to troops: You've got me in the house

Is Obama narcissistic???

They sure are overplaying their hand on celebrating the Bin Laden raid anniversary. There too, the Obamabots are out there, even Bill Clinton among them, praising the courage it took to make the call to go after Bin Laden.

As Joe Biden told us, the raid to get Bin Laden was the most audacious military action of the last 500 years.

It all reeks of propaganda.

"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World — where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' — both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

"As a gesture of solidarity, the Vietnamese who [Bernardine] Dohrn met in Budapest presented her with a ring made from an American aircraft shot down over North Vietnam. Bill Ayers would receive a similar ring while meeting with Vietnamese communists in Toronto. He later recalled being so moved by the gesture that he 'left the room to cry.' "

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."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weatherman_(organization)#Chronology_of_events
__________________________________________________

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.

As Joe Biden told us, the raid to get Bin Laden was the most audacious military action of the last 500 years.

Yea, it was far more cunning and dangerous than Doolittle's Raid. It dwarfed the scale and epic planning and strategic deception and execution of the D-Day Invasion. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagosaki, wasn't THAT kind of audacious?

I do not take anything away from the Bin Laden coupe. It was certainly daring and a terrifying testiment to our enemies about the capabilities of America's finest. It also sent one hell of a message to the world, "Don't doubt what America will do or what we are capable of." Obama should get the credit as he is the sitting president and he did give the go order.

Frankly, Obama's war record with regards to the aggressive hunt and killing of terrorist is worthy of respect. He may have taken enhanced interrogation off the table but he did implement a "kill them all" strategy, which can be just as effective when terrorist are deciding who should be in charge next and whose house should be base for planning purposes.

However, his leadership with regards to Iran and N. Korea is abysmal. Maybe he will yet surprise us with those situations (I actually do hope).

The man is a disgrace to his race. The human race.

Several alien races have also expressed disapproval.

And more generally, I think it's time for this whole "shout-out" thing, from what are supposed to be responsible public figures, to end. You didn't just, finally, get called up on "The Price is Right," and getting people to cheer for themselves ought to stop when they leave elementary school.
