[Update] Politics or Heroism? (+ Open Thread)

Update: An example of Salon’s brain on drugs with side effects including hallucinations, agitation and confusion. How to make Mitt look small” — “After last night, Romney is probably done complaining about Obama’s ‘politicization’ of bin Laden’s death.” (more at the end)

VeteransForAStrongAmerica.org: President Obama has spiked the Bin Laden Football so hard that Navy SEALS, retired and active duty, are hammering him over his zealous efforts to take credit for their handiwork.

In response to President Obama hiding behind our troops and taking credit for their actions – we’ve released our newest ad entitled CREDIT.

The ad tells a simple but powerful truth: Our service members sacrifice greatly to protect this nation and deserve the credit for keeping America safe, secure and strong.

– From VeteransForAStrongAmerica.org.

NOTE: That Web site is well worth a visit. Besides the video, there are many great photos and several “policy briefings” on issues pertaining to national security, including — rightfully — the budget.

UPDATE: How to make Mitt look small” — “After last night, Romney is probably done complaining about Obama’s “politicization” of bin Laden’s death,” Salon magazine:

Mitt Romney just received an emphatic reminder that he’s not running against an ordinary candidate – he’s running against the president of the United States.

For a while, it was beginning to feel like the presumptive GOP nominee might be getting the better of Barack Obama in their tiff over the anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death.

After Obama authorized a campaign video that suggested Romney wouldn’t have given the go ahead for the mission that killed the al-Qaeda leader, Romney and an army of Republican leaders and commentators cranked up the righteous indignation. …

[...]

Obama used the speech to lay out his roadmap for the end of the war in Afghanistan. …

His remarks had the immediate effect of making the dispute over his bin Laden ad seem petty and beside the point. …

It was a dramatic, eloquent speech on an emotional day, witnessed live by tens of millions of Americans who are ready to put the war in the rearview mirror. Whatever political benefit Romney reaped from his appearance with Giuliani – and from the past few days of wailing by the GOP – evaporated on the spot. Romney seemed to recognize it, too.

… Obama had just delivered a signature presidential moment. As a mere candidate for office, that’s just not something Romney can compete with.

READ ALL at Salom: “How to make Mitt look small

Funny, isn’t it, how Salon’s title re-politicized the faux purity of Obama’s seemingly “signature presidential moment.”

  • TeakWoodKite

    seems like Salon is using to much hair spray. They are saying BO has put this to bed? I disagree and find it farcical.

    Obama went 7000 miles to stand in front of two trucks that made him look very small. He signed an agreement that no Afghan or American had been given the chance to read. ( go ahead, try and find the text the of agreement he signed. I dare ya)

    Besides the fact that BO went there for completely political reasons, he also set up the “nasty ad” with the fore-knowledge he was going to Afghanistan.

    But despite their welcome, Afghan politicians were critical of the Karzai government for not making the text public before it was signed. They also said that most ordinary Afghans had no clue that Obama and Karzai had signed it, as most were asleep and would have found out only after the U.S. president left following a secretive trip in which he spent less than seven hours on the ground in Afghanistan.

      That was one hell of an endorsement he gave Romney (snark). That is why many of his peers in Congress were vehemently against his running at all. Newt has a special way of making himself irrelevent. Maybe he can star in a few more Obama commercials.

      This is deplorable.

Carney saying that he did not say he wanted asylum has as much credibility as his multiple Hillary Rosens.

    I previously brought up the issue of the blind Chinese dissident taking refuge in our embassy in China and wondered what “Captain Courageous” will do.

    I thought it was a no brainer. But not when it comes to “ole blood and guts.”

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/chen-guangcheng-ignored-hillary-clinton_643110.html

    Like the protestors in the streets of Tehran, when it comes to this dissident and his family, “Captain Courageous” is once again hiding under his desk in the Oval office.

    Rove’s group is so far doing a great job with commercials (the cool guy, and now backward). I certainly hope he is doing one showing how gutless Obama really has been and how horrific his foreign policy has been to destroy this faux impression he is trying to leave with the decision to go after Bin Laden.

    Please Romney and Giuliani “America Mayor”? Now that is small. Hey Rudy remember the investigation of the WTC 93 bombing and the shutting down the testimony of the PAPD Det. Sgt. Peter Caram the PAPD CT expert who warned of the potential before it happened?

    Where was Rudy when America needed him then?

    • KenoshaMarge

      America’s Mayor? My ass!

      That was a media constuct. While we all mourned for those who died on 9/11 that didn’t mean we became enamoured of Rudy Guiliani. At least no one I know did.

       The fizzle of his campaign pretty much proved that.

      • jrterrier

        Rudy did a great job as mayor of NYC, even if he personally is a jerk.  Anyone who remembers NYC pre-Rudy may remember a place where streets were dirty and people in danger almost everywhere.  He brought about a revitalization of Times Square and the entire city.  Whatever else he did or didn’t do, on 9/11 he was the only politician on the ground; he was in charge and he didn’t sound breathless.  compare the municipal leaders in New Orleans after the flood; or Pres Obama after the oil spill. 

        • Flop_Flipper

          I thought that, in general, Rudy did a good job initially after 9/11. It’s not exactly like anyone could have been prepared for it. Where he lost me was when he attempted to bypass the normal election process because of an emergency.

        • Hokma

          Also, people forget just how rampant street crime was including what was called “wilding.” Rudy came into office and pulled no punches in laying down law and order which placed him at odds permanently with people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

          NYC had two great mayors: Ed Koch who saved the city and Rudy who revitalized the city. Mayor Bloomers was fortunate to inherit what Rudy left and has contributed nothing. After 3 terms Bloomers still has not significantly improved the education system.  

          Looks like P.C. Ray Kelley is the odds on favorite to replace Bloomers.

          • Popsmoke

            Look Rudy did some things well but lets not overplay that either. As far as Kelly is concerned that last thing NYC needs is Ray Kelly as mayor…..

            I give Ed Koch more credit than Rudy…..

          • Hokma

            PS -  the fact is Rudy deserves more credit than he gets. NYC was a horror show under Dinkins. Rudy made some very politically tough decisions in overhwlmingly liberal NYC when it came to crime and when it came to attracting tourism and business back to NYC.  Not enough is written about the revitalization and growth of NYC with and since Rudy. That first year he took office he managed to alienate most labor leaders and minority group leaders. But by significantly changing the living conditions most NYCers approved of him and re-elected him.

            I think the America’s Mayor is overplayed but you cannot deny hte leadership he showed that September 11th – something no one was ever prepared for.

          • Popsmoke

             Dinkins? A NYC Subway driver could have run the city better.  Rudy did some good thing and many of his policies were heavy handed. Personally he has a small mans complex and is a jerk.

            I can tell you first hand that he backed off of supporting Det. Sgt Pete Carem the PAPD CT Expert testifying to the 911 Commission.

            So as far as I am concerned that shows me that Rudy would put his own interests before the interest of those who elected him, worked and visited the city….

            Lets not mention those who died that day…..

        • KenoshaMarge

          He may very well have been a “good” mayor or fit for NYC and I personally thought his first response after 9/11 was a good one from what I “knew”, which was only what we were told.

          But I do not think, or believe, that any mayor of a large urban city is “America’s Mayor.” That’s just bullshit.

          Then when he tried  to extend his term and when he used 9/11 as a campaign tool I lost all respect for him.

          If I had any respect for Obama I would have lost it now that he’s using the killing of Osama Bin Laden as a campaign tool.

          Like Rudy with “a noun and a verb and 9/11″ we see Obama with “a noun and a verb and Osama Bin Laden.”

          To make is more repulsive Obama is so crass as to suggest that another president wouldn’t do the same thing. Well maybe one, that would be the one that’s applauding Obama for doing what he didn’t.

       Here are a couple of choice bits from that article… hehehe.

      “The guy freaks me out a little bit,” the man said. “I’m not going to
      lie. He’s pretty, and we all think we did something because of his
      color, and I don’t discount that, but for f—k’s sake, he scares the hell
      out of me.”

      “I feel that President Obama has betrayed us, has broken every promise that he made,” said one man sporting a cap that read, Local 338.
      “The change that he promised didn’t happen. The only economic change
      that happened was for the one percent. Every promise he has broken.”

      So, take away all the voters who voted for him because he was black..except for the black voters, of course, and then take away the union members and what do you have left. The black vote and the union bosses. That’s not enough to win an election.

    OT:  What in the hell happened with the Chinese dissident?  Did the U.S. ambassador not clue the dissident in on what the Chinese were doing with his wife and family???

    I’m worried.  You would be too if you’d had Gary Locke, the current U.S. ambassador, as your Democratic governor for two terms.  If Gary got an inkling that the Obama administration was nervous about the dissident creating any “issues” that would conceivably alter economic negotiations, even minimally, Gary would have said most anything — or, oops, not given the dissident the whole story — just to make him go away.

    • BronwynsHarbor

      I’d LOVE to know what Jon Huntsman is thinking.

      P.S. Ask the voters of Washington state about the sports stadium that, in a statewide vote, they voted NOT to build in Seattle. Best I recall, Governor Locke — with a sly wink to the team owners and developers — maneuvered to get it built anyway, paid for by taxpayers.

      • Dissentispatriotic

        I’ve wondered about Huntsman’s thoughts for a couple of days but imagine he knows this is not a time for him to speak out.  Damn shame. 

      • Dissentispatriotic

        Bronwyn, After the events of today, the US looks very ham-handed in the way this was handled.  You know Gary Locke so can better speak to whether this was the way he handled it, or did he get instructions from ‘above’ – either Hillary, Biden or Obama?  Bad news all around, I’d say.  The last news I heard tonight was that the dissident was forcibly removed from the scene during an interview or phone call. 

        More than ever, I’d like to hear Huntsman’s perspective.

        biden denied asylum seeker

        this story is from yesterday

        • BronwynsHarbor

          Okay.  This article isn’t a ridde.  Here are a couple passages that actually make sense:

          1) The office of Vice President Joe Biden overruled State and Justice Department officials in denying the political asylum request of a senior Chinese communist official last February over fears the high-level defection would upset the U.S. visit of China’s vice president, according to U.S. officials. [...]

          MY QUESTIONS:  Was Biden a cut-out for Obama? Did Biden overrule Hillary? What did Hillary really want? (Pains me to say it but her behavior re human rights/China has been tough to take at times because China has so much power over us financially, or so it is believed.)

          2) According to officials familiar with internal discussions on the Wang case, the rejection of his asylum request may have violated the 1980 U.S. Refugee Act, a law championed by Michael H. Posner, currently assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rights, and labor. United Nations human rights conventions on handling threatened refugees also may have been ignored, the officials said.
          During interagency discussions over the attempted Wang defection, which played out during a tense standoff in China Feb. 6 and 7, Posner and other senior officials argued that the Chinese official should be granted asylum and helped out of China so he could appear before a federal judge in California.
          MY COMMENTS:  Good.  We now know of TWO laws — one U.S. and one U.N. — that the U.S. has violated.  Not that that would matter to the Obama administration.
          THANKS, HELEN.  You’re so good at finding the best info.

    Sean Hannity showed the video above, so I found the Web site and grabbed the code at YouTube.  Then I saw another video via Sean, and figured it was up at Romney’s site.  

    This was my second visit to Romney For America. 

    Instead of hunting for the video, I noticed a link to how to get involved “from home” and clicked.  This is the sign-up page to make phone calls on weekends.  I clicked the button for people who’ve never called before so that I can get as much help as possible before I start making calls.

    And here’s the link to the latest videos.  The new ad — Greta just played it too — is terrific, comparing Obama’s empty promises to his failures to do anything except talk more.  The stormy sky is a great visual.

    Here’s hoping some of you will sign up with moi to make calls.  I just hope I can stay on script and avoid going off on Obama’s B.S.  Ha!

    have you guys been following this story about Pres Obama making up a passage in his memoirs?  he claims that he compressed real persons into a single person to maintain their anonymity.  but he actually wrote about a specific incident and a specific conversation that he now claims did happen but with a different person (whom he is not identifying) and probably in a different city.  that is not compression that is fabrication.  

    and what’s more, look at the point he “compressed.”  I wonder what else if compressed or fabricated.  NUTS.
     

    “One of the more mysterious characters from President Obama’s 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father is the so-called ‘New York girlfriend.’ Obama never referred to her by name, or even by psuedonym, but he describes her appearance, her voice, and her mannerisms in specific detail.

    “But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the ‘New York girlfriend’ was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago.

    “In Dreams from My Father, Obama chose to emphasize a racial chasm that unavoidably separated him from the woman he described as his New York girlfriend,” Maraniss writes, offering a passage from the book in which they go to see a play by a black playwright:

    ‘One night I took her to see a new play by a black playwright. It was a very angry play, but very funny. Typical black American humor. The audience was mostly black, and everybody was laughing and clapping and hollering like they were in church. After the play was over, my friend started talking about why black people were so angry all the time. I said it was a matter of remembering—nobody asks why Jews remember the Holocaust, I think I said—and she said that’s different, and I said it wasn’t, and she said that anger was just a dead end. We had a big fight, right in front of the theater. When we got back to the car she started crying. She couldn’t be black, she said. She would if she could, but she couldn’t. She could only be herself, and wasn’t that enough.’

    “None of this happened with Genevieve,” Maraniss writes.  “She remembered going to the theater only once with Barack, and it was not to see a work by a black playwright. When asked about this decades later, during a White House interview, Obama acknowledged that the scene did not happen with Genevieve. “It is an incident that happened,” he said. But not with her. He would not be more specific, but the likelihood is that it happened later, when he lived in Chicago. “That was not her,” he said. “That was an example of compression I was very sensitive in my book not to write about my girlfriends, partly out of respect for them.”

      Compressed?  Isn’t that Obama’s word for ‘lying’?  The man does something he gets criticized for and then makes jokes about it.  He plays the narcissist’s trick of making light of his own misdeeds while at the same time trying to turn it so that those who criticize him seem small and ridiculous.  It just isn’t working.  Simple reason:  we are just not brainless and as easily manipulated as Obama still thinks we are.

        remember he claimed his own birth was due to the selma alabama marches even though he was  born 4 years before they took place. and his father left kenya for america before the selma marches. time can be compressed also.

         I think I can now describe BO as a:

        Compressing bag of fecal material

    • stodghie

      well now they are not memoirs but fiction which i suspected all along.

      Yes, we’ve all been waiting for this girl to appear.  It’s like waiting for Godot.  And I have personally been waiting for Oprah to call THE ONE onto her couch and humiliate him in front of the TEE VEE cameras for writing a fictionalized memoir, as she did for another writer who fictionalized his memoir that she pushed in her book club.

      I’ll be waiting for a long, long time.

      I really liked this response from O:   “That was an example of compression I was very sensitive in my book not to write about my girlfriends, partly out of respect for them.”

      Perhaps deep down in his inner most soul that he rarely attempts to call forth, he knows how absolutely embarrassing it would be for any woman to say she had been a “girlfriend” of BO.  No one wants to have to admit such an example of bad judgement before the entire nation.

    Just an FYI
    Nato summit in Chicago has a No fly zone with a “shoot to kill” order.

    I get that security is needed, but why not hold the Summit at Broom Lake? It is getting harder and harder to recognize this America.

    here is what the commander of the USS Cole thinks of backtrack using the death of ben laden for re-election purposes

    disgusting, in his words

      That would be Tea Partier Kirk Lippold, the idiot commander who let that small suicide boat get hull to hull with the Cole. I’m truly impressed, Helen, Queen of the Pumas and Bubbas. Why did you drop that cute monicker?

      • jrterrier

        idiot commander? and where were you at the time?  have you ever served? 

        • Dbb3

          Do a little research on the guy – there is a reason he was relieved of his command and retired as Commander when any further promotion was rejected by the Senate and Navy Secretary. He sucks as a politician too, couldn’t beat friggin Sharron Angle as challenger to Harry Reid.

             That’s rich –someone who supports Obama telling others to “do a little research.”

            Hey, all you morons who misuse the word “irony” THAT’S ^^^^^ irony.
