Republicans are getting on the president’s case, saying he’s politicizing the anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden.
To quote House Speaker John Boehner, “Blah, blah, blah.”
Hello, top news story of last year. The ultimate revenge on the S.O.B. who was the mastermind behind the killing of thousands of Americans on 9-11.
Politicize all you want, Mr. President. It was the ultimate act of a true patriot in a generation.
Still the Republicans whine. The same GOP-brains who wouldn’t give President Obama credit after it happened last year at this time.
Had the raid on bin Laden failed and the Navy SEALs been killed, the GOP would be running political ads ad nauseum this week. Obama is weak on fighting terrorism would’ve been the chant.
When Mitt Romney was asked if he would’ve made the call to take out OBL, he snarked “Even Jimmy Carter would’ve made that call.”
President George WMD Bush and Deadeye Dick Cheney? Ahh, not so much. In fact, they let the S.O.B. escape in Tora Bora and WMD pretty much didn’t care if OBL was dead or alive. But that’s because the Bushies needed to have the bad guy still out there to feed the frightened ones more fear.
And let’s talk about politicizing events after 9-11 by the Bushies for a moment. During the 2004 re-election campaign of the worst president in modern history, Cheney told crowds that if Democrat John Kerry was elected, the U.S. would surely be attacked again. Forgetting, of course, that the worst attack on U.S. soil happened under his and Georgie’s watch.
Accuse Obama of taking victory laps on the anniversary if you will, but nothing could ever top the grand-standing of W. costumed as Tom Cruise in “Top Gun” aboard that aircraft carrier with the “Mission Accomplished” sign behind him —- several years too early and two years after he left office.
In 2008, Obama promised that if elected and he had the chance to kill bin Laden, he would. Well, he did. And he did. He kept his campaign promise. It was one hell of an accomplishment. He has every right to campaign on it.
Unless Mitt Romney tries to convince the electorate that it was he who ordered the hit.
Romney could probably get the frightened ones who make Fox News a ratings winner to believe he also ordered the hits on Hitler, Stalin and Jabba the Hut.
Romney is counting way too much on the short attention span of the American people.
Now he’s claiming that he was the one who saved GM from going bankrupt, when all you have to do is Google the New York Times op-ed piece the Mittster wrote in November 2008 with the headline that reads “Let Detroit go bankrupt.”
Since the GOP is trying to eliminate Planned Parenthood, voting rights for minorities, and telling women what to do with their bodies, they should try to outlaw the Internet. Because it doesn’t take much to fact check and see how absurd Mitt Romney is. Ol’ Rick Santorum was right, Romney has “no core.”
On Tuesday, Mittens was telling a crowd that Obama doesn’t care about the poor.
Wait a minute, that’s Obama’s campaign strategy to paint Romney as someone who doesn’t “care about the very poor.”
Is Mitt Romney trying to morph into Barack Obama?
That’s the only way he would get bin Laden.
Romney once said he wouldn’t move heaven and earth to get the world’s most wanted terrorist.
But he could always flip-flop on that by saying he really meant the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
It’s been a year since Osama bin Laden has been rotting in hell. Here are just a few of the complaints he has about the place where he will rot for eternity:
1. “Fish. Fish. Everyday fish. I keep telling these infidels 72 virgins, not 72 sturgeons.”
2. “The cable reception here is terrible. Hello, I’m missing my soaps!”
3. “This is a long line, it’s going to be an eternity before I get to see “The Hunger Games.”
4. “What’s with the elevators here? They only go down. And enough already with the piped-in Barry Manilow music.”
5. “I had a choice of being taken out by the Navy SEALs or go hunting with Cheney. What can I say, I picked the lesser of the two evils.”
