Let's see...

Bush Jr. didn't want to go after Bin Laden. "I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority"

Romney says he would not order a tactical strike on Osama if he was found in Pakistan. So does McCain.

The GOP tried time and time again to make sure that responders present at Ground Zero on 9/11 didn't get the physical and mental health care they needed.

When President Obama's order finally led to Bin Laden's death, the GOP claimed it was Bush Jr.'s extensive work on finding Bin Laden (apparently including the wars on Iraq and Afghanistan) that led to the mission's success.

Romney flips his stance, says even Jimmy Carter would have made that kind of order. Forgets the Iranian hostage crisis, a politically and realistically difficult situation which cost Carter his chance at a second term.

Seems to me that the GOP are sissies when it comes to national security.
Obama and the Democrats are tougher on it.

Does the GOP have a problem with Democrats telling the truth?

ST6: "Mr. President, we've cornered BinLaden. Our Seals are poised and ready to strike, every second of delay jeopardizes the Seal's lives and the mission's success, so all we need is your simple consent to do this thing"

Obama: "But I'm in the middle of an important round of golf; and we still need to round up everybody for a historic photo-op. I really need to think this over"

ST6: "But, Mr. President, surely you've considered this nearly inevitable endgame call already; it's the culmination of everything we've been doing for the last decade...It's a simple question Mr. President, just answer yes or no, and we can move on"

Obama: "OK, look, we're at the turn; just give me forty minutes to grab a hot dog and put a black jacket over my golf shirt and I'll meet you in the Situation room for the picture -I mean the call, the call"

You know who this puts Obama on par with? Every fricking Republican who has run for office since 2001.

Dukakis is driving over on a tank to have a word with you. Give him a minute. Meanwhile, watch out for the Bear in the Woods... waiting for this article author, who must be under 40 or just not very good at political advertising before the 1990s. Is that Nixon about to declare "Peace with Honor?" Were you too much of an 'effete intellectual snob' to not know this? Look up how Eisenhauer ran against Adlai Stevenson while you're at it.

ok, let's assume for a second that this is how it actually went down.

so you're saying that obama is such a farking zen master and operating on such a higher plane than everyone else that he's able to finish a round of golf AND order the successful assassination of the man who perpetrated the greatest terrorist attack in US history? a man who eluded the republican president before him?

HE'S GOT MY VOTE!

They're also upset that they failed miserably in catching or killing him, even after ten years of screaming about how they're the only ones who could.

But then again, they had Bush at the helm the whole time so failure really was the only option.

Lets not forget, it was Bush's White House that ignored the "Bin Laden Determined To Strike In the US" memo. They were too busy fighting Ashcroft's War on Pornography. Did not think bin Laden was a credible threat.

They try and try to get something to stick to Obama, anything, and he just laughs them off.

Obama caught on a live mic about leeway after elections. ZOMG he is Soviet spy. Then normal people forget about it and Teapublicans are grinding their teeth.

Obama ate dog meat as a young child, makes jokes about it and gets laughs.

Frankly, the word on the street in Pakistan is that the reason we never saw Osama's body is that Osama was never there.

Of course, the word on the street in Pakistan is always subject to considerable skepticism. But, observers point out the following:
* There was never an unusual traffic coming in and out of the compound that would have indicated someone important holding up there.
* There were no guards posted at points around the compound that would have aroused suspicion.
* In a country notorious for loose lips sinking ships, no one ever hinted at any unusual activity or presence at the compound - though even lower-level officials would have had to have some knowledge.
* Osama was said to have been a very sick man, likely in need of continual dialysis - yet there was never any indication of him coming out for hospital visits, or doctors going in on a regular basis.
* Though Pakistan is full of Osama supporters, there was no massive public outcry against the US "invasion" - and the Pakistanis love to take to the streets.

All circumstantial to be sure. But, faced with choosing between believing the Pakistanis and Barack Obama, it is a toss-up at best.

They really don't deserve one. And, when you look at the Republican party, you have to think that, in the voters' minds, Obama could punch kittens and set nuns on fire, and he's still going to look better and less insane than they ever could.

Seriously. I don't agree with many things Obama's done, but when I look at the GOP, I just laugh. There is simply no way a sane person could ever support them. They are just a dying political party that has resorted to impotently lashing out like bitter little children.

NateGrey: They try and try to get something to stick to Obama, anything, and he just laughs them off.


More importantly, they seem to be trying their hardest to make Obama's success in killing bin Laden and capturing his files the #1 news story for as long as possible.

Hint to the GOP: This is not the discussion you want to encourage. Obama's consistently shown results on foreign policy since he's been in office. If anything, he's very aggressive-- ordering SEAL raids and drone strikes into sovereign nations without the permission (or even the knowledge) of their governments. He helped topple Qaddafi in a way that made toppling Saddam look like the quagmire (strategically and logistically) it was.

Second hint: You look like disingenuous assholes when you make 10,000 political speeches twisting logic past its breaking point to accuse Obama of "palling around with terrorists" over the last four years... and then turn around and complain that his administration is "exploiting" successes against high-profile terrorists by mentioning them. These things really happened. This administration has been killing high-profile terrorists like they're the ones getting the bounties. It's getting hard to even name a prominent al-Qaeda guy who is still walking around free, instead of being locked up or reduced to a thin pinkish smear of goo. Talking about that is fair game. It's an actual issue, instead of talking about him eating dog meat as a child.

Maybe you should steer the conversation towards substantive topics where you have accomplishments from the last four years to tout, if you can think of any.

Well, they screamed against Obamacare. They screamed against reforming the tax code, or letting the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy expire. They screamed about abortion and gay rights, they screamed about the unions, immigration, and how much they want the president to fail.

The screamed a sh*t-ton since 2010, and the result is nobody wants to hear them screaming any more. Except those parts of the country where screaming is all they have left, so its what they do now. Its like our leading export, if anyone but ourselves were buying.

A little hawkishness tempered with pragmatism is sometimes what's needed. Libya and judicious targeted killings via drone and our more euphemistically 'killing-machine' friends are good examples to my mind. Now when it's tempered with insane, untethered neo-conservative wet dreams of Empire on the other hand...

If you're going to go with that angle, go with the one where SEAL Team Six actually overrode the wishy-washy golfer-in-chief because they are true men and real patriots, and not worried about what the average citizen of "Pock-E-Stahn" thinks about red, white and blue justice.
 
2012-05-01 11:07:29 AM
If only this were true. Republicans campaign on America-first foreign policy issues. They show how they take care of America by doing the hard things that need to be done.

Democrats only do acts like killing bin Laden and Clinton's "chemical weapons lab" strike when it benefits them politically.

Shame on you, Democrats, for trying to use foreign political actions to score cheap political points.

Obama did far more than just push a big button that said "Yes, Kill Bin Laden." He was fully involved in the planning process and definitely earned credit for getting Bin Laden. Here's some delicious copypasta to show you how wrong you are.

The president made his concerns known in a briefing about 10 days before the assault on the bin Laden compound. According to senior aides, Obama felt that the special operations COA, or course of action, was too risky. Under the COA at that time, only two helicopters would enter Pakistani airspace, leaving little backup if something went wrong. "I don't want you to plan for an option that doesn't allow you to fight your way out," the President told operational planners at the meeting, according to the notes of one participant.

So the plan was revised. Ultimately, four helicopters flew into Pakistani airspace, including two refueling helicopters that carried additional personnel. In the end, the extra forces didn't need to fight their way out of the compound, but a backup helicopter did play a key role in the operation. One of the two primary assault helicopters, an HH-60 Pave Hawk lost its lift, landed hard and had to be destroyed. The backup landed to lift its passengers to safety. "The President created the 'fight your way out' option," explained an administration official.

Shhh...it is a Republitard fantasy.

Facts that Republitards ignore about the OBL assault.

1. Obama insisted it not be done with a bombing campaign in order to avoid civilian casualties.

2. Obama insisted that the assault team be larger in order to engage Pakistani force and fight their way out of the country.

3. Obama debated a drone strike, but independent analysis of the intelligence put the likely hood of OBL being the man in the compound at 50/50.

4. A failed assault would probably ended Obama's chances to win 2012.

5. It was 2-3 days after the go command was issued before the weather cleared and ST 6 was able to attempt the assault.

6. If the assault team had not been as large as it was the assault would have failed, because of the helicopter crash.

The planning and decision to execute the attack is one of the bravest decisions a US president has ever made, he bet years of intelligence work, his presidency and the lives of those men on one throw of the dice.

President Obama is a great president and history will remember him as a giant among midgets. He should be immortalized in granite.

It's an old right wing talkig point they are trying to bring back. They claim that the military did all the work, and had to fight to go in and get im, basically telling the president they were going to do it wither he liked it or not.

But if anything had gone wrong, either by losing lives of the SEALS, failing to kill Osama, or severe public outcry/ political blowback from Pakistan, they would have rubbed themselves raw over this as a mistake by Obama. And we all know it.

GAT_00: NateGrey: Republicans cant catch a break.

They try and try to get something to stick to Obama, anything, and he just laughs them off.

Obama caught on a live mic about leeway after elections. ZOMG he is Soviet spy. Then normal people forget about it and Teapublicans are grinding their teeth.

Obama ate dog meat as a young child, makes jokes about it and gets laughs.

It sucks to be a Republican.

/Vote Republican

What I'm worried about is this exact same shtick has worked before. Remember the Swift Boat.


Obama ain't no bandleader.

/Obscure?
