So, Subby, you're saying that he shouldn't congratulate the SEAL team?

Why do you hate the troops Subby? Did mommy or daddy not hug you enough? Or, maybe you just like terrorists...

That is what the House Republicans are saying.

Astounding. I understand they are sticking to their plan of no congratulatory measures. But this is an extraordinary circumstance. They could break the rules just this once.

Then again, this sort of thing could keep them from creating their next sure-to-be-vetoed bill trying to take away Obama's teleprompter, redefining rape or not creating jobs.

Well, to be fair, they DID make Obama look good, and therefore are enemies of America.

When the President of the United States is admonished for thanking the 101st brigade, I despair for this country. Did the Republicans not watch Band of Brothers? Why do they hate our troops?

Because partisanship is more important than patriotism.

FTFA: The decision by GOP leaders follows new rules they enacted in January scrapping the tradition of congratulatory measures, which they complained clogged up the House floor.

Unlike submitting a budget to be voted on, only to vote it down when all the Democrats switched to "present"?
 
2011-05-06 07:30:45 PM
I'm sure the GOP will issue congratulatory proclamation soon honoring the one true President Bush for killing Ardilla the Gopher.

Part of the new Boehner House, they have done away with Congratulatory Resolutions on the House floor so they will have time for all that job creation stuff they have been doing.

While it seems like a good idea, if saving time was truly the motive, however I have the feeling the only reason this was put in place was to prevent egg-on-the-face situations like congratulating James O'Keefe for outstanding journalism.

I don't see anything wrong with the commander-in-chief thanking the troops that took out Osama bin Laden.

Hell, I'd thank them myself, and buy them a drink, if I knew who they were.

Obama recognized the full assault force with the Presidential Unit Citation, the highest honor that can be given to a unit.

...

ahahaha
 
2011-05-06 11:58:38 PM
Seriously? His thanks and even glory is all our thanks and glory. Just as Bush's sorrow was all our sorrow in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. This is the duly elected president our nation and the Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces.

Of course, they'll stick to this rule, while ignoring their rules on fiscal notes and constitutional authority notes (whenever convenient).

Al Qaeda vowed that it would try to make America pay for his death.

trillions spent, thousand of US/allied service members dead, 100K+ civilian casualties, civil liberties stripped, rampant paranoia, worldwide rep broken...

calm the fark down Al Qaeda, this is a nice victory for us and all but you're still winning

OBL's death is about the worst event possible for Republicans.

I can just imagine that he invited the Republican leadership over for movie night. Obama holds the remote control, hits slo-mo, and says, "Watch this part where all your electoral hopes died. Wait for it...wait for it."

Obama continues football-spiking tour. Dude, do you think if you Gary Coopered this and didn't say a word you wouldn't get props for taking out OBL?

Conservatives love the what-if machine, so let's fire it up:

What if Obama "Gary Cooper"'d it and didn't say a word?

Free Republic:

JoBama Rectum Sniffer knows he deserves no credit for the destruction (you can't kill something that isn't alive) of that terrorist Obama Osama and his moon god. That's why he doesn't mention it. Finally a Dhimmirat with a shred of shame. To bad he doesn't have the shame to hang his thug wife and ghetto trash daughters.

Pajamas Media:

Barack Obama does not bring up the death of Osama bin Laden because he knows in doing so, he'd have to credit Pres. Bush with the successes that he made possible with his enhanced interrogation policies, and it would rob him of the limelight. By staying quiet, he's hoping to get the most credit out of this that he possibly can.

Etc., etc. I really don't care to think like one of them anymore, so I'm turning the what-if machine back to its default, liberal position: reality, aka off.

Bloody hell. For a unit that doesn't officially exist, they went through hell and the chance of death to complete a mission that they were sure would never be officially recognized. Now it has been. And now although no one will ever know their names, and a cover story will be invented as to how they received their Presidential Unit Citations, they can have even more pride in the astonishing thing they accomplished.And Republicans would deny them that. Freaking unbelievable.

Sunday: I, I, I, me, me, me. Obama is acting like he did this himself. No credit to the people who actually handled the logistics of the operation.

A few more:

"He won't say anything about it because he's a secret Muslim and he secretly mourns Osama's death, which was carried out secretly without his OK."

"He won't visit the SEALs because he hates the military and they all hate him."

They'd find a way to spin it negatively no matter what he did, because they're intellectually dishonest whores who say what their clients tell them to say.

ugh, this whole "Everybody Praise President Obama Tour" is starting to get out of hand.

He basically ordered someone else to finally do something that he was either unable or unwilling to personally do himself.

What's next, have a one hour prime time news segment where he has the children of people that died during the 9/11 attacks come out on stage and bow before him, offering gifts and pledging their total devotion to him??

And I'll bet that Obama didn't feel any worse about his decison one week ago than he does today. However, he probably is sleeping better knowing he did the right thing.

And he's right. Even if it had been the right decision and it had failed, the fallout wouldn't have been any different because the same people that hated him for being a lefty, commie, seekrit muslin, socialist black president last week hate him for being a lefty, commie, seekrit muslin, socialist black president this week. However, the butthurt is definately more inflamed.

No, they couldn't do it "this once." Because their followers are so easily swayed, it would probably swing Obama's poll numbers into the high eighties.

Truman ended WWII.
Nixon sent men to land on the moon.
Ford ended the Vietnam War.
Bush collapsed the Soviet Union.
And Obama sent people to get Osama bin Laden.

All these things are true.
