Koch: Obama didnít contribute Ďmuch at allí [to operation to kill OBL]
Seattle Pi ^

Posted on 05/05/2011 2:02:56 PM PDT by Mr. Mojo

Billionaire conservative oilman David Koch is debunking President Barack Obama’s role in the operation that tracked down and killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

“All that Obama did was say ‘yea’ or ‘nay,’ we’re going to take him out or not. I don’t think he contributed much at all,” Koch, a longtime financier of right-wing causes, told New York magazine.

New York caught up with Koch Monday night at the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Spring Ball.

Koch is a major giver to cancer research: He and brother Charles Koch, owners of privately held Koch Industries, are also financiers of groups seeking to limit and roll back regulation of cancer-causing chemical emissions into the environment.

Koch is also, as New York put it, “rabidly-anti-Obama,” and told the magazine:

“He (Obama) just made the decision, it was obvious where the guy is. He (Osama bin Laden) was one of the worst terrorists organizing attacks on the United States. I mean, no president in his right mind would not approve that decision to go eliminate him.

“So he’s getting a lot of recognition and his polls have jumped up, but his decision was the easiest of them all. The real hard work was done by the intelligence and the (Navy) SEALs.”

Obama is “a hardcore socialist,” Koch added, “and he’s marvelous at pretending to be something other than that, but that is what I believe he truly is, a hardcore socialist. He’s scary to me.”

All that Obama did was say ‘yea’ or ‘nay,’.....

And it took him 16 hours to do that.

Now that Trump has jumped into the ring, why not Koch? He has a ready made slogan: Things Go Better With Koch.

It happened in spite of not because of.

Especially in spite of Senator Obama’s opposition to Bush era intelligence efforts.

Everyone know this...
Obama will always be haunted that perhaps the ONLY popular success of his admin came because of BUSH POLICY!
He had to leverage of that or there would be NO dead Binny Boy.

Slam every Obama supportor saying it was all his doing with that one.
They can’t run from it.

They had to sober him up first.

He had a huge hangover from the White House Press Associates Dinner and Trump Roast.

And saying “yea” or “nay” is what we expect from the POTUS. Given the tone of his OBL speech, he thinks we are supposed to laud and obsequiously extol him for simply doing what we expect him to do.

He’s got more money than Trump (Forbes richest top 10) and more hated than Trump from the libtards. Sounds good to me LOL.

Bingo. Just because I could buy a ticket, it doesn’t mean I could design, build or fly a 747.

Obama didnt contribute much at all to kill OBL.........Especially since not a shred of evidence has been presented that OBL has even been killed. Hey you know yesterday I saw Elvis and Jesus arm wresting at a Chuckie Cheese. Hey, why should I show you any evidence?

I don't think you will ever see a 'news' story that says 'a longtime financier of left-wing causes' by the New Yorker or anyone else!

Doesn't say much for the ol' Hillbilly Who-re Hopper who infested the People's House back in the 90s, does it?

Yep! when Zero gave the OK for a “ground assault on the compound” by our SEALS instead of bombing the compound - Zero thought he was delaying any action - what he did not know was that all the preparations and training had been on going! And when it actually happened he was very surprised. I believe that is why Zero looks peeved in the War Room photo!

This is BS. All credit all blame goes to the man in the arena, Bush and Obama.

If BinLaden had been killed with a golf club, barry could have taken the credit...

2Q (Q2?)Freep-A-thon thread:

To: GoCards; Syncro; Sheila Robinson; All

This was at the Tea Party Express rally in Reno, NV last week (Go Sharron Angle!). The lady in the cowboy hat with the sweet smile is my wife Sheila. And that’s Syncro’s left eyeball in the upper left as he focuses his video camera.

Sarah was introduced to me by Sal Russo (leader of the Tea Party Express) who introduced me as Jim Robinson from freerepublic.com. She said thank you for all you guys have done, then leaned forward and gave me a little cheek to cheek hug. I took it as she loves the FReepers and pass it on to all of you!!

Woo hoo!! FR is Palin Country!!

And he was on the golf course in the final hours before the operation.

Gotta love Koch - in Wisconsin, all the liberals see him in every shadow and think he is secretly running the state government now that the libs are completely locked out of power.

Obama taking credit for killing Osama is like the shoe bomber taking credit for building the plane he took and landing it safely, when in reality all he did was purchase a ticket and try to blow it up why he was on it.
