Skip to comments.TV future planned for video slamming Obama’s credit-grab on bin Laden kill
Posted on 05/05/2012 4:26:42 AM PDT by Daffynition
Veterans for a Strong America is looking for a place to run its hit online video on television.
The ad praises the quiet heroism of the military personnel who killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011, and portrays President Barack Obama as a glory-hound eager to hog the credit.
With dramatic background images and a banner reading Heroes dont seek credit, the ad shows a catalog of Obamas statements describing his own responsibility for the mission: I can report I directed Leon Panetta I was briefed I met repeatedly At my direction
Were at a point where we have no choice but to run that ad on TV, Veterans for a Strong America director Joel Arends told The Daily Caller.

Local cable buys...
Let him continue his self-immolation. He is unelectable.
Makes one wonder if Slick Willie didn't know this when he appeared in the original football spiking video that proclaimed Obama a hero.
Just WOW! Posted to Fbook and Twitter... for all 3 of my followers.. LOL.
I believe Obama should present himself with the Silver Star for Valor for this courageous act.
Bronze just isn’t enough, and the CMH is a bit too much, but he certainlt deserves a silver star.
Sometime during this act he may have gotten a paper cut and that should entitle him to a John Kerry type Purple Heart.
It makes me want to puke to see this fake president give a fake salute to a real American Marine or Soldier.
WOW, this post and in particular THAT video made my day. Thanks for the post and God bless our military.
Where does one contribute to Veterans For a Strong America?
Very surprised and disappointed yesterday to hear Megan Kelly announce that FOX wasn’t going to run the whole ad. If anything qualifies as earned media, this does; and it should have been run in entirety. It certainly won’t be getting anything but a snide mention on the other networks.
Go to the Veterans for A Strong America site and there is a donation tab at the top of the page.
John Kerry was “Swift Boated” by veterans when he started abusively pushing his military record. The LMSM tried to turn the vets opposition to Kerry into a swear word that continues even today.
I wounder what they, the LMSM, will label this effort. It sure as heck will NOT be called “truth in advertising”
BTW - I still have my personal copy of the Swift Boat Veteran's VHS tape where they told their stories.
It’s already got 835 thousand views on youtube...it’ll probably break 1 mil this weekend.
835,579 VIEWS and counting...
Oh my! Maybe he could give himself the Purple Heart for that fat lip he got while playing basketball.
Just like it made me want to puke when Clinton did it and if elected, Romney the draft dodger would make me feel the same way.
Obamie took the risk?
Miss his tee time?
The precedent has been set. During WWII, then congressman LBJ wangled a commission as an LCDR in the U S Navy and went on an observation mission in a USAAF bomber over New Guinea and came under light enemy fire. He was awarded a Silver Star by one of MacArthur’s staffies for being a spectator and he forever wore the decoration in his lapel.
I knew he was low, now lower then I ever thought!
‘Move over, honey, your President needs you.’
We need look no further than Lyndon Johnson’s diary. His entry for that day is laconic: “After we were off the field with Prell (sic) and Greer leading, Greers generator went out; crew begged him to go on. For next 30 minutes we flew on one generator.”6 No mention of combat, of enemy interceptors. LBJs “heroism” was fabricated from the start.
Further evidence comes from former Staff Sergeant Albert Tyree, a gunner in Marauder 1536. He states, “I remember the mission very well, and I recall seeing a B-26 fly out of formation and turn back . . . I know it wasnt 1363 (1st Lieutenant Powells aircraft) because that had belly-landed just before we got back to Port Moresby. We didnt get attacked until the Hecking Hare had turned around.”
Reports vary on what happened to the B-26 Marauder carrying Johnson. Lyndon Johnson said it was also attacked by Japanese fighters but survived, while others, including other members of the flight crew, claim it turned back because of generator trouble before reaching the objective and before encountering enemy aircraft and never came under fire, which is supported by official flight records.
Of course the MSM of the day glossed over this insignificant bit of information.
