This may be the Obama campaign, all of it, repeated from now until November 6.

A presidency fixed on a murder by gunshot.

Ironic? Dubious? Does it means that Mitt Romney or George Bush or any Republican would not have launched a operation against Bin Laden?

Is this the foreign policy campaign of POTUS Obama? The man who shot Liberty Valance, Seals Scenario?

The slow down shown in the 2.2% GDP for the First Quarter is deep fear in the White House and in Chicago. The consumer cannot sustain the spending with this weak a pattern. And the jobs numbers will tremble.

Is Chicago playing for time? Joe Biden tries the “killed Bin Laden and saved GM” line to cheering. This is a presidential campaign about the future? Strange days.

And the reason Mr. Obama is superior to Mr. Romney is because he shot Bin Laden? What does that make the second term? A bounty price reward?

      As I said, if I were advising Romney it would be to back off and leave it to others and Obama’s own sword.

      And I certainly would not bring up Carter who had the guts to try and extract the hostages.

      • Hank DeCat

         I agree the Carter thing was not needed; however, there is a huge difference between an off-handed quip in a press line (that refers more to Carter’s after-POTUS years going around the Middle East selling out the US like a jack@ss in the name of being a “peacemaker”) than planned, approved, produced & aired propaganda piece from Obama.

    biden denies Chinese defector asylum

    • jrterrier

      This is despicable.

    • Hokma

      Maybe Biden thinks it’s an insane asylum in which case we would all agree. Let’s at least give Biden credit for being a complete moron.

      Imagine if it were Cheney who said of Bush when referring to speak softly and carry a big stick that we should take the VP’s word that the President “has a big stick.”  The jokes would flooding the internet and airwaves. Even stoic Bret Baer had trouble keeping a straight face mentioning that quote from Biden.

    now he can go FORWARD..


    look who backtrack is meeting today.
    jarrett warning panetta shut up????????

  • Hokma

    Politically, the best response from Romney would be no response and let Obama fall on his own sword which is happening. Obama is getting massive piushback from Navy Seals, from the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, from McCain, and even from Arianna Huffington in words better and more powerful than anything Romney could say.

    • Flop_Flipper

      Totally agree that Romney should stay above the fray. There are plenty of folks justly hitting Obama on this and there will likely be more. I prefer Obama showing his ass for all the world to see. Even the Emperor can’t hide his naked ugly butt.

  • HARP2

    Obama would not be occupying the Oval Office if it were not for the
    people over the past sixty years who have blindly supported those who
    have lied to them.  The overriding stratagem of socialism/Marxism is
    “the ends justify the means” — thus, no lie is too big to tell, no
    promise too outrageous to promote, and no tactic out of bounds.  The
    overall strategy of the Obama re-election team confirms this mindset as
    it conducts a demagogic campaign based solely on emotional appeals to
    that part of the population its operatives consider “useful idiots.”

    who thoughtlessly supported the left in America over the years are
    beginning to reap what they have sown.  Unfortunately so is the rest of
    the population.

      George H.W. Bush refused to use his success in the Gulf War in his re-election campaign – which cost him.

      Now you have feckless Bill Clinton narrating a nearly equally feckless Barack Obama on a event that Obama had to be forced into and had little to do with – all for cheap political re-election points – and includes a mass distortion of his opponent.

      I just cannot wait for Romney to eat this dog alive in the debates.

        dick morris said today that clinton did it to get help covering hillary’s campaign expenses from 2008 which of course he agreed to take care of then and didn’t.

        sad to say i no longer have any respect for bill clinton. another bites the dust. anyone who would do that should hang his head in shame.


    iran demands US apologize to the muslim world after Fla pastor burns anothe koran

    Yeah they will get that apology about the same time the muslim world apologizes for burning churches and killing Christians.
    They do nothing but preach hate so screw them

    and more on the sleazy nature of the 24/7  campaigning:

    “The preezy of the United Steezy is making me queasy.

    I’m not troubled by President Obama’s slow jam with Jimmy Fallon, who dubbed the commander in chief “preezy” during Obama’s appearance on late-night TV. No, preezy is making me queasy because his nonstop campaigning is looking, well, sleazy — and his ad suggesting that Mitt Romney wouldn’t have killed Osama bin Laden is just the beginning of it.

    In a political culture that long ago surrendered to the permanent campaign, Obama has managed to take things to a whole new level. According to statistics compiled for a book to be published this summer, the president has already set a record for total first-term fundraisers — 191 — and that’s only through March 6. Measured in terms of events that benefit his reelection bid, Obama’s total (inflated in part by relaxed fundraising rules) exceeds the combined total of George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter.”

    you know it’s getting really bad when this appears in the Washington Post.  to read the whole thing:

       Obama……Leader of the free lunch bunch.

     Barack Obama’s latest campaign slogan “Forward!” also happens to be a Nazi marching tune.!

    • Hank DeCat

       Forward . . .into the abyss!

    • HELENK2

       I thought his motto was ” advance to the rear”

      • Mary Cusack

        No his them song is :”prepare suckers, take it in the rear”   and “bend over, here comes the change”

    • Hokma

      Isn’t it coincidental that his slogan is “Forward” and the MSNBC tagline is “Lean Forward.”   

      Maybe not. They’re both socialists.

      • HARP2

        The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into
        history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a
        long and rich association with European Marxism.
        Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the
        19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates.
        Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of
        socialist publications).”
        “The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political
        terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist,
        communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,” the online
        encyclopedia explains.
        The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European Marxists
        and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which
        would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

    When you lose Arianna you’re in trouble.

    Arianna is an opportunist, not a partisan — she was a Republican during the Clinton years & switched to being a “progressive” during the W years when it became popular to bash him instead. She goes with the way public opinion goes. Her saying this tells me the wind is blowing against Obama.

  • no_longer_a_democrat

    Interesting that the Seals went to the UK media to speak out, but not American media.

    A SEAL Team member said: ‘Obama wasn’t in the field, at risk, carrying a gun. As president, at every turn he should be thanking the guys who put their lives on the line to do this. He does so in his official speeches because he speechwriters are smart.
    ‘But the more he tries to take the credit for it, the more the ground operators are saying, “Come on, man!” It really didn’t matter who was president. At the end of the day, they were going to go.’

    • Hank DeCat

       Or it could just be that the UK journalists are interested in covering a story, regardless of how it might make Obama look.


    the way this reads unelected valery jarrett was trying to  keep it from happening and backtrack was listening to her

    • TeakWoodKite

      It is interesting that the traction on that meme hasn’t done anything but spin in the mud. BO will not act unless his EGOOOO is on the spot. I have been pondering why Obama did not say a word about Iran crushing decent but already to have a beer with the MB. I got nothing.

    What an interesting analogy:  Barack Obama and Rance Stoddard.  Both elected to multiple political offices on lies. 

  • JohnnyTwoDog

    Only one photo of the situation room during the raid was released. Obama acts as though he is seeing this photo for the first time when Peter Jennings shows it to him.

    Obama does not remember the moment in the only released picture, but knows the exact moment when Hillary puts her hand to her mouth?

    The helicopter going down was not memorable, Hillary’s hand to mouth is?

    Obama, “If I am not mistaken Pete, this picture was taken right as the helicopter was having some problems.” 

    White House photograper Pete Souza shakes his head to concede he also does not know when the picture was taken?

    Obama, “Because I remember Hillary putting her hand over her mouth at that point.”

    This whole episode, especially Obama’spost raid Rose Garden wierd, rambling announcement was fishy, even without Larry’s insight.

    Obama gives the impression that the raid was less than a stellar accomplishment in this Peter Jennings interview.

    • Hank DeCat

       Obama after the OBL raid:

      ‘I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the
      killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority . . . even as I
      our broader effort. . . . Then, after years of painstaking
      work by my intelligence community I was briefed . . . I met repeatedly
      with my national security team . . . And finally last week I determined
      that I had enough intelligence to take action. . . . Today, at my
      . . .’

      Contrast with Bush after the capture of Saddam Hussein:

      [The capture of Saddam Hussein is] ‘a tribute to our men and women now
      serving in Iraq.’ He attributed it to “the superb work of intelligence
      analysts who found the dictator’s footprints in a vast country. The
      operation was carried out with skill and precision by a brave fighting
      force. Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many
      dangers. . . . Their work continues, and so do the risks.’…

      “He did mention himself at the end: ‘Today, on behalf of the nation, I
      thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate them.’”

      Obama couldn’t have seen Hillary put her hand over her mouth. Just look at the picture. Doesn’t it seem to the average viewer that Obama is too completely enthralled watching college boys in shorts playing basketball his monitor to be concerned with anything happening outside his ego field of view?

  • Dissentispatriotic

    You make a point.  Who is going to discuss this strategy publicly?  Most media will never bring this up.
