  1. The real irony is Obama bringing out Bill Clinton… who really did let Osama go… to promote the smear.

  2. Dan, headline check… ‘speaking’ the ball? :-)

    We got it done under his watch. He has every right to take credit for it.

    Yup. And for the record, let’s review how smoothly Obama took that credit:

    “I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority . . . even as I continued 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 direction . . .”

    He’s so cool, he gives me a tingle in my pant crease. But according to Mukasey, the historical documents just aren’t going to support Obama putting quite -that- much ‘I’ in ‘teIam’:

    A recently disclosed memorandum from then-CIA Director Leon Panetta shows that the president’s celebrated derring-do in authorizing the operation included a responsibility-escape clause: “The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven’s hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the President for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and if he is not there, to get out.”

    [...]

    …the president does not seem to have addressed at all the possibility of seizing material with intelligence value—which may explain his disclosure immediately following the event not only that bin Laden was killed, but also that a valuable trove of intelligence had been seized, including even the location of al Qaeda safe-houses. That disclosure infuriated the intelligence community because it squandered the opportunity to exploit the intelligence that was the subject of the boast….

    Way to go, Bammy. You were in such a hurry to brag, that your timing screwed over the intelligence team.

    Finally, may I say that I ‘love’ how Obama’s bragging on this:
    1) implicitly validates the entire Bush security position (including waterboarding, which obtained important pieces of the early intelligence chain, like info on Osama’s couriers);
    2) undercuts everything the Left has ever tried to teach evil Amerikkka about the evils of governmentally-sponsored, extra-legal assassinations; and
    3) changes the subject to one that even Independents know the Democrats are darn weak on: namely, defense and foreign policy, including the GWOT.

  3. Sorry – I should not have said “the intelligence team”, but rather “-your- [Bammy's] intelligence team.” Please forgive my sin, Dear Leader!

  4. Obama’s desperation has extended passed the sewer. It shows. He’s gasping for air & it’s only May.

  5. Obama is also saying ignore the stinking economy, stagflation, ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank, & Porkulus; I killed Bin-Laden. Vote for me in 2012! Obama has gone beyond overplaying his hand with this nonsense. It’s amateur hour as the Obama campaign crumbles from within.

  6. President “I, Me, My” Obama disproportionally takes credit? Color me surprised, NOT! This is yet another ploy like the “war on women” and the”Romney made his poor dog ride on the roof of his car” that is going to backfire. Plus his jumping in on the side of his “people” again without all the facts in the Martin/Zimmerman case. It is almost like he knows he can’t run on his record so he keeps throwing shiny objects up in the air as a distraction, “oh look bright shiny object!” unfortunately for him, their is no way to escape him record. I am looking “forward” to the debates!

    Anyone notice that his new slogan “forward” is the command given by a BLIND person to have is guide DOG lead him “FORWARD” thus “LEADING FROM BEHIND!” LOL!

  7. THERE is no way to escape HIS record

  8. Yeah, Obama does deserve some credit. Regardless of what anyone says, sending US special forces personnel into a foreign nation just 30 miles from their capital with super secret black ups helicopters without even informing said foreign government, even to get OBL, is a hard call. If something went wrong, there’s no way it would have been kept quiet.

    But, Obama isn’t really spiking the ball at this point: he’s dancing on a riser which would get a yellow flag thrown.
