Former Navy SEAL Launches PAC To Fight Obama
Politicker ^ | 18 Jul 2012 | Hunter Walker

Posted on 07/18/2012 11:19:15 AM PDT by mandaladon

Today, Ryan Zinke, an ex-Navy SEAL and Montana State Senator, announced the launch of Special Operations for America, a political action committee dedicated to “the election of Mitt Romney and like-minded candidates.”

“Navy SEAL’s, Special Operations Personnel and Veteran’s across America have been outraged since Barack Obama conveniently took credit for killing Osama Bin Laden for political gain,” a statement announcing the loss of SOFA said. “The active duty military has no voice as they are forbidden to publicly engage in the political campaign process and it is career suicide for senior military leaders to speak out against the President.”

Mr. Zinke, who has frequently slammed the president’s handling of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, reiterated his criticisms of the operation.

“The President has failed and he is jeopardizing the safety of our troops, their families and our National security for political gain. Obama has exposed the identity of special operations units, leaked classified information, and limited the rules of engagement of forces on the ground,” said Mr. Zinke. “For those who have taken an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, it is a call of duty to take back America from a Commander-in-Chief that is incapable of understanding the sacrifices that have been made for the values that have made America great.”

The guy isn’t an ex-SEAL. You’re only ex-military if you’re a person like Murtha, someone who starts and encourages witch hunts against the military for having to deal with incredibly restraining ROE.

The Military Community Loves America, unlike comrade 0bama.

I think there should be an investigation on the deaths of the Heroes that took OBL down. Were they set up?

The commandor of Special Op's has just stated that Obama "is incapable of understanding the sacrifices that have been made for the values that have made America great.”

It's time for Obama to be run out of office like a dog!

Want Obama to lose in Nov? Really want to see him go down?

Then every small business owner ought to have a temporary RIF starting now and tell those who are laid off that it’s because of the economy. Do this in key States and you’ll have a sure win.

It really is the patriotic thing to do since we are at risk of losing our country. We take men and women out of the work force to fight wars. Why not take them out of the work force to fight the internal war that is being waged at home?

With the news of our recent loss of H.D. and others in his battalion, many people have made statements like “I didn’t think anything was going on there anymore.” “I thought the Marines were leaving there.” Etc. etc.

Here’s the statistics in Afghanistan for the 8 years of George Bush. The total killed in action under him is 660. Barack Obama in 3 years and 5 months the total killed in action is a total of 1,398.

Wounded under George Bush is 2,637 in 8 years. Wounded under Obama up to January 31st of this year is 11,529.

"“The President has failed and he is jeopardizing the safety of our troops, their families and our National security for political gain. Obama has exposed the identity of special operations units, leaked classified information, and limited the rules of engagement of forces on the ground,” "

obama did promise transparency. We didn't ask where.

Notice, he used the word “that,” which is usually used to refer to a thing instead of “who” which is used to refer to a person, clearly implying that Obama is a weird thing instead of a real person. An excellent choice of words.

Obama has never sacrificed. Obama knows nothing about hard work and letting it all dangle on the edge. Obama doesn’t have what it takes.

When Obama finishes his first 4-year term it will be the longest period of time that he has ever held one job.

Think about that a little.

I wish these guys the best with this PAC and I hope that the Democrats learn that you don’t even have to lie about your military record to get swift-boated.

That's why he's so loved by people who are afraid of liberty.

Interesting. I have a pretty good friend, whom I have every reason to believe was involved in the planning (career navy support for spec ops) of the binladen raid. He never mentioned any such thing, was always closed lip about his work. I am speculating because of timing. I spoke to him almost daily except when he was involved in what I believe was a detailed mission. Within one week after the death of the seals, he told me he was being transferred to another base and a different career field. I was surprised because it was so sudden and I asked him how long he had known this, he laughed and said “today.”
