Video: Bragging Mr. President? Heroes Don’t Spike the Football
This video perfectly illuminates the unseemliness of Obama’s constant gloating and bragging that he, himself killed Osama bin Laden.
This video comes out just in time as members of the SEALs are slamming Obama for bragging so much about bagging binnie.
As the caption notes:
America knows who deserves the credit for killing Osama Bin Laden – United States Navy SEALs and the American intelligence community. Join with Veterans for a Strong America and let President Obama know who really deserves the credit.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I agree with President Clinton when he said that if the whole attack on bin Laden that day had gone horribly wrong, it would have been Obama that got the blame — and rightfully so. I also agree that Obama should get a lion’s share of the credit, just for the reason that as president the buck stops with him. He made the final decision and could easily have said “no go.”
So, we should not discount his part — even if it was a small part — in giving the final nod to complete the work the Bush administration began.
But the fact is that if Obama had followed his own recommendations on foreign policy he’d not have killed bin Laden. Obama was against waterboarding, against Guantanamo Bay, against surveillance of suspected terrorists, against… well, against everything the led to the US being able to find bin Laden. His constant bragging is galling on this count.
Not just Obama, either. Former Democrat Speaker of the House is still claiming that she never knew of the waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques being employed on the very people that helped the CIA find, track, and pinpoint bin Laden. The truth seems to show she is simply not telling us the truth.
And today, Obama secretly flew to Afghanistan to address the nation on the anniversary of the elimination of bin Laden, showing that he has no intention of laying off his spiking of the football.
It’s all very unseemly of a president of the United States. We should expect better.
