Joe Biden Calls Bin Laden Raid The Most ‘Audacious Plan’ In 500 Years
Yahoo News ^ | 3/20/12 | Oliver Knox

Posted on 03/19/2012 10:21:49 PM PDT by Lmo56

Vice President Joe Biden said Monday that the raid that killed Osama bin Laden was the most "audacious plan" of the past 500 years. Biden's comments, made at a Democratic fundraiser in Morris Township, NJ, ranked the May 2011 assault that ended the Al-Qaeda chief's life above the D-Day invasion of Normandy in 1944, the surprise landing at Inchon in 1950 that turned the tide of the Korean War or, going back a bit further, George Washington's daring night-time crossing of the Delaware River before the Battle of Trenton in 1776.

And Biden and his ilk voted against everything, especially weapons systems, that made the raid possible.

FUBO!!!

Please, let Joe keep talking.

He’s such a yahoo even Yahoo slams him.

Now we just need an intrepid reporter to ask Gen. Obama if he agrees with Joe.

Last 500 years?

Let's see. D Day, the moon landing, and winning the Revolutionary war are counter examples that come to mind.

Our Navy Seals and pilots risk their lives to carry out the mission. Obama risk only his political future. If the mission had failed..he would have said it was all planned by the military.

I must disagree with you calling Joe a Putz. Us Putzs are very offended by being compared to Joe Biden. Think of Joe as simply zero degrees kelvin.

Actually the most audacious military invasion was when the Allies went ashore in Normandy France. General Dwight D.Eisenhower wrote his letter of resignation to Roosevelt before the invasion. He said he took full responsibility for the failure. The letter was never cabled to Roosevelt as the invasion was a resounding success. General Eisenhower knew if the invasion was not successful he would have no time for anything except salvaging his men and equipment from the potential disaster.

Another one that comes to my mind is Pickett's Charge, although [in that case] it failed ...

Joe Biden is full of $hitt. There have been several operations over the years that were as great as this one was. There is a difference. After those operations we had a president and vice president who could keep their damn mouths shut and not compromise top secret information.
I wonder if this jackass realizes yet that there are probably bounties on the lives of Seal Team Six now that he violated All COMSEC rules ever made?
The military hates this socialist white house. The seals risked their lives to get to and kill that SOB. The obamass and biden didn't do a dam thing but run their mouths and place the lives of our heroes at a higher risk.

638 American Soldiers and Sailors lost their lives just rehearsing the Normandy Invasion after their ship was torpedoed during an exercise, a fact I'm sure Slow Joe never knew about.

Obama was on the 18th Fairway when the Seal Team was en route to Pakistan for the raid.

The picture of him with a suit jacket over his Golf Shirt in the Bunker cracks me up every time I see it. What a hero that Obama is. He missed having a Beer at the 19th Hole.

What Biden neglects to say is that Obama was on record as being against virtually every critical aspect that led up to and allowed the raid to occur. In other words, had Obama had his way while Bush was President, the raid could have never happened.

But he wasn’t and Bush put it all in place and our brave service personnel, regular forces, special forces, CIA, counter-terrorism, did their job and Obama walked into something he simply had to say yes to.

To not say yes at that stage would have been political suicide.

So, yes, it was a bold plan, and it worked...but it worked precisely because a President who had AQmerican interests uppermost in his mind, George W. Bush, set it up to happen, and the follow on President who is more of a marxist than a patriotic American, had it dropped in his lap.

That’s the truth.

Add to list of ‘possible contenders’

Hannibal crossing the Alps.
Nina, Pinta & Santa Maria - 3 large rowboats braving the Atlantic.
Japanese virtually ‘conquering’ China.
Germany invading Poland
OF COURSE, the Germans marched in backwards so everyone thought they were leaving. (Biden would believe that one)

JoeBama is definitely a tool. We have puppets with someones hand up there hind parts in the top 2 positions in this country.

Maybe Joe is shooting for the most audacious piece of verbal asshattery in the last five centuries.

If that’s the case, you gotta admit it’s a pretty fine effort.

I dunno. I’d put even Perot’s private raid to get his own folks out of Iran above the OBL raid.

Really, how different was the OBL raid from any similar raid conducted in Iraq or Afghanistan? Apart from the OBL raid being conducted in secret on an erstwhile-ally’s soil, there really was no difference from any other no-knock Special Forces raid.

Even Pearl Harbor. The Japanese had to sail 1500 miles undetected, get good weather, and hope that the United States did not have scout planes out conducting searches.

While it was a tactical success, it was a strategic failure - since the Japanese were not able to knock out the Pacific carrier force [which was out on maneuvers at the time].

The theme of the week for the Obama admin is: Obama is really a man. He’s a man’s man. He leads audacious military raids in sovereign countries. He has pillow talk with his wife. He is really not gay or effeminate. He loves to watch basketball!

The Most ‘Audacious Plan’ In 500 Years<<<

That would be the destruction of the Constitution and America by the installation of the commie usurper to the highest office in the land.

I can see what ol' Joe is trying to say, though. "Audacious plan" is demspeak for "big lie", and with what little evidence we have that this bin laden raid happened as reported, well...

Besides, if Bin Laden had been alive after the coronation of the Won, he would have been as welcome in the White Hut as Ayers or any of those hoodlum rap sh*th**ds. OBL would have had unlimited access to his own media room to watch Miss Camel pageants and Sesame Street porn.

Once again I must rise to say that not everybody in Delaware is as stupid as Old Joe Biden.

Old Joe is in a class by himself - and still has trouble being the smartest in that class. Oftentimes the chair beats him. And he has trouble with a piece of chalk or a flag pole.

Joe Biden - a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

I’m thinking when we shot down Yamamoto in his bomber - that was pretty “audacious”. 1000 miles in modified P-38’s.

Amelia Earhart - that was an Audacious Plan.

I think the earlier poster with the moon landings though might have the most Audacious Plan. Especially with the technology they had back then. (Well - no technology really, until they created it for the moon mission.)

"audacious plan" "moon landing"

Funny how, in almost 43 years, I've never heard about Nixon landing on the moon, yet in so few months, I've never stopped hearing about Obama getting Osama.

If Obama Got Osama, Nixon Landed on the Moon
