What is that old saying? God loves drunks, kids and America? I can’t remember for sure, but it sure looks like we were blessed in November of 2004 when we missed the destruction of a Kerry Presidency. Of course, then we were hit right in the forehead with the Obama Presidency, proving that all good adages have their weaknesses.
Washington (CNN) â€“
Democratic Sen. John Kerry said it is time to stop questioning the exact occurrences in Osama bin Ladenâ€™s house before his death in Abbottabad, Pakistan, at the hand of U.S. Navy SEALs.
â€œI thinks those SEALs did exactly what they should have done,â€ the senator from Massachusetts and 2004 presidential nominee said Sunday on CBSâ€™ â€œFace the Nation.â€ â€œAnd we need to shut up and move on about, you know, the realities of what happened in that building.â€
Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the information gleaned from bin Ladenâ€™s compound underscores his active role in the terrorist network.
â€œHe was, in fact, the center,â€ Kerry said.
He also praised the Obama administrationâ€™s handling of the situation, despite errors in initial information disseminated by the White House, something he said is â€œthe nature of the beast.â€
â€œLetting these folks know that we have this information is actually a way of deterring certain activities from taking place,â€ Kerry said. â€œSo I think theyâ€™re (al Qaeda) on the defensive, significantly so. And I think strategically the administration has done very, very well.â€
The only operational responsibility the Obama White House had in the hit on Osama bin Laden was the responsibility for transmitting the information to the world and the American public. What part of the operation got all FUBARed up? Yes, that’s right. The smartest man-god in the world couldn’t even pull off a press release. (Really, read the whole thing. It’s mind-boggling.)
But along comes Senator Good Hair to essplain to us to shut up and Move On™. We have no business questioning his god-king, Teh Won. Just ignore that man behind the curtain. Who are you going to believe, me or your own lying eyes?
But, of course, the media and Democratic politicians have been careful to give credit to the military and intelligence efforts which brought this success to our operation. Wait. What?
Rather than deflect inappropriate praise and give credit where credit is due, the media and Ds have instead slobbered lovingly all over their Dear Leader, as illustrated by this lovely ode:
But the top prize for the most sycophancy towards Obama this week surely has to be awarded to Wendy Chamberlain, Middle East Institute president and former US ambassador to Pakistan, who had this to say on CNN:
But he made that decision to go without telling Pakistan and that took some real courage, as much courage as our Navy SEALs did in pulling off a near flawless operation.
Hmm. Think about that. Deciding not to tell the Pakistanis makes Obama as brave as one of the SEALs on the Geronimo mission? As brave as a man who rappels down a rope from a Black Hawk into a compound deep in Pakistan at the dead of night knowing that it is the hideout of a mass murderer who happens to be the worldâ€™s most wanted terrorist?
Yeah. Srsly. And go here to read more of them. And take some Pepto with you as it is absolutely nauseating.
And I’ll close with someone else’s great snarky tweet (I think it was Drew from Ace who said it): The only hesitation Obama has in spiking the ball is knowing that it will bounce back and hit him in the face. (paraphrased)
