CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - First lady Michelle Obama said Saturday that the U.S. military specialists who killed terrorist leader Osama bin Laden showed "the very essence" of public service. Mrs. Obama made her first public remarks about bin Laden's death during the commencement address at University of Northern Iowa. U.S. officials have said Navy SEALs shot and killed bin Laden and four others Monday at his luxury compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

..the U.S. military specialists who killed terrorist leader Osama bin Laden showed "the very essence" of public service.

It sounds like she's comparing the Seals to community organizers.

They’re just lying. They think the American people are so dumb that they can be total leftists for 3 years, act gun-ho for 18 months, and they will get elected again.

I believe the American people are smarter than that.

What is more dangerous than standing between Osama and a Navy Seal?

Standing between Michelle and a Tamale. (Just ask Obama)

Sounds to me like she is desperately trying to create a smokescreen for the loony far left, to keep them in line.

From the leftist point of view is she saying that the “the very essence” of public service is too shoot a man dead?

I personally got no problem with killing terrorists like this, but it seems like a very odd statement from her considering she is from the far left and so can only be seen like I said, a desperate attempt to keep her base in line.

MSM. All Bin Laden. All the time. Spiking the football? Gosh, not the Obamas. Gee, what’s next? Will Barack and Michelle fly out to the Flight 93 crash site in Pennsylvania on board one of the helicopters used in the Bin Laden raid?

"Public service"!!?!?!?! As in a public service announcement?!?!?!?! Is that what our troops are doing over there? Public service!?!??!

Both these Obamas are huge pieces of sh!t. Go have another tamale, Moochele.

Moosechelle claimed during the campaign that one of her causes would be taking care of military spouses. She sure has been quiet about it, until lately when the new campaign is gearing up, unless military families are keeping all of her do-gooding under wraps! Yeah, that’s it.

The First Lady’s remarks represented “the very essence” of downplaying a spectacular act of heroism with faint praise.
