I watched the October 3 presidential debate pretty carefully. I'm pretty sure Mr. Romney claimed that he was responsible for the decision to undertake the raid.

I mean, it's not as if Mr. Romney is a well-documented liar. And, it's not as if Mr. Obama failed to contradict a single claim by a "not" (snicker, snicker) well-documented liar that seemed facially absurd. So, I have to assume that bin Laden's death is due to the efforts of a self-described unemployed guy who's admitted on a secret recording that he hates half the country.

Yeah, if Bin Laden was killed under Dubya's watch there would be seven movies out by now starring Clint Eastwood, the dad from Poltergeist and Angelina Jolie's father.

And they would be aired in primetime every night the week before the election and as a marathon the previous Monday.

"We are opportunistic from a programming perspective"

That's refreshingly blunt.

Some people already believed that.

According to a PPP poll of likely Ohio voters, 15 percent of Republicans in Ohio think Romney is "more responsible" for bin Laden's death than Obama, while 47 percent of Republicans are "not sure" whether Obama or Romney deserves more of the credit.

It must be kinda nice living in your own little bubble of reality. Wonder what the weather's like?

I think it's less people honestly think Romney deserves more credit and more the fact that a disturbingly high number of Republicans cannot bring themselves to give Obama credit for anything positive.

While I'd have to see exactly how the question was worded to be sure, I shudder to think what sort of mental gymnastics are needed for someone to think an ex-governor who currently has no formal political authority whatsoever could possibly be more responsible for taking down Bin Laden then the sitting president of the united States.

Even if all Obama did was sit back and let other people do their jobs, he'd still be more responsible for Osama's death simply because he had a much greater ability to fark up the operation then Romney ever did.

...and he didn't do dick. So yeah, I think seven movies is about right.

I wonder if the movie will show Obama drooling on his pillow as he slept on it while the Seals were waiting to go in.

I'm going to enjoy the Captain American dialogue:

"Now that we've captured him, team leader, should we take him home to stand trial?"

"No, you'll learn these devil arabs have slippery tongues, son. Soon as he opens his mouth he'll start confusing real Americans in the heartland. Best dump out at sea as his heathen religion requires."

Non-evil Monkey: I think it's less people honestly think Romney deserves more credit and more the fact that a disturbingly high number of Republicans cannot bring themselves to give Obama credit for anything positive.


That's what's so farked up. After 9/11, Bush had a 90% approval rating. If he got Bin Laden, his birthday would have been a national holiday. But instead he said, "fark Bin Laden, I don't give a shiat". So Obama decided Bin Laden was a priority after all and after a year of intelligence gathering he took a chance and made the call. And Republicans are all like, "fark all that". They won't give him an inch.

Did he get a good shot of his best drive off the tee?

The question was "Who do you think deserves (*) more (*) credit for the killing of bin Laden; Obama or Romney?" The answers were only A) Obama B) Romney C) Unsure.

If you go "WTF, it was Seal Team Rainbow (or whatever)", then it was probably unsure. If you go "Well it wasn't farking Obama!", then you probably get recorded as Romney. It gets worse when you consider how the starred words are vague and misleading in the first place and could easily be over-emphasized.

If I weren't already drinking, I would start based on those cited figures. OK, genius pollsters, your next homework assignment is called the "follow-up question", as it "how in the flying fark could your racist, shiat-filled, good for nothing but compost brain think Romney had anything to do with it?

We rarely get to see more stilted visions of the Republican hate for democracy, though, so I love seeing it.

"THE GOVERNMENT IS TAKING EVERYTHING AND TAXING US TO DEATH!"

OK, hyperbole aside, vote for candidates that you think best represent you interests with regard to taxes

"OMG, OBAMA SOCIALIST KENYAN TAXATION WARGARBLEEEE..."

OK, "thanks" for voting.

Where does it say that Obama was a part of this movie? He didn't direct it, he didn't write it, he didn't cast it, he didn't edit it, he didn't produce it, he's not in charge of special effects, he didn't run the craft services truck, HE ISN'T PART OF THE PRODUCTION.

BTW, he also doesn't make programming choices at National Geographic Channel. You know WHY they're airing it right before the election? So that people will WATCH it. It's a financial decision made by the network to take advantage of the most opportune time to air the show.

This president had very little to do with the raid on Bin Laden. The fact that he even chooses to divert attention from the actual team that participated, or wants to use this to help in his futile election campaign is close to sickening.
