Far from Gutsy: Contemptibly Craven

Most Americans have seen through the Commie Media’s borderline comical chorus of “most gutsy call in all history” and “cancel the 2012 elections” after Barack ordered the Navy Seals hit on Bin Laden. In spite of the media’s best efforts, polls have showed no particular bump (other than frequent outlier ABC/WaPo) in his approval ratings. Good on Americans. It is likely the lefty dreams of a dumb, gullible electorate are long gone in this era.

Commies, surprising nobody, have been classless in ascribing all glory to Barack, unwilling to concede the astoundingly obvious: that 90%, perhaps more, of the work done to get Bin Laden was done by Bush policies and Bush-era boosts in military and intelligence assets that the Commies opposed, undermined, and railed loudly against, accusing Bush, the military, and conservatives of the basest motivations and criminal deeds. Investigations against enhanced interrogation CIA agents continue while Commies bask in the glory of the Bin Laden takedown.

Most conservatives, Republicans, independents, and other people not drinking the Commie Kool-Aid have been gracious in giving Barack his due in not screwing up The Easiest Call In History. I think we do America a disservice by doing so. We should call this what it is.

The order by Barack to take out Bin Laden was a move that spells out how deeply cowardly and selfish is this unworthy man. He made this move not out of courage, or even out of duty. He did it because his desire to be re-elected outweighed even his radical leftist ideals, outweighed even his reflexive sympathy for Islam, all things anti-American, all things anti-freedom.

He did not make that move because he wanted to. He clearly did not want to order the hit on Bin Laden at all. The CIA and JSOC had served this up on a platter, locating Bin Laden, working through multiple scenarios and coming up with a plan that was worked out and rehearsed for months. Yet he dithered for 16 hours, sleeping on it while the team awaited the go order.

Ordering this hit went against everything that he stands for. He and his team have had to face the expected blowback from world Wahabbists and all Barack’s favorite despots, and they have had to attempt to reconcile his world apology tour with this textbook act of Cowboy Diplomacy.

What were the consequences of failing to act? OK, pay attention because this is complicated. If he failed to give this mission a go, Barack would lose the 2012 election by a large margin. There’s no way that scrubbed mission stays secret until November 2012. End of discussion.

So for the sake of having a chance at reelection, he sold out his anti-military principles, his soft spot for radical Islam, his attachment to fascist dictators, his desire to knock America’s world standing down to size, and even his instinctive desire to crawl into a corner and just vote “present”.

For once in his life he (eventually) stepped up and made the call. But not for any reason for which he deserves respect.

E Pluribus Unum
The weapons had evolved, but our orders remained the same: Hunt them down and kill them off, one by one. A most successful campaign. Perhaps too successful. For those like me, a Death Dealer, this signaled the end of an era. Like the weapons of the previous century, we, too, would become obsolete. Pity, because I lived for it.

  1. Yep. You articulated so well the reasons behind my reluctance to give this guy any credit at all in this operation. It is about respect, and that has to be earned. Nothing Obama has done before, and since he became president, has shown that he has earned that respect. He bought the 2008 election, maybe this time people will realize that what he (and his Communist supporters) are selling, wasn’t “made in America.”

  2. “Investigations against enhanced interrogation CIA agents continue while Commies bask in the glory of the Bin Laden takedown.” And they are not backing down from that. Where is Panetta in all of this?

    While we have open Communists marching in CA, along side the Unions, was McCarthy right?

  3. Right On, Mr. Unum. He gets no credit from me, either. Just because he was “forced” into doing something right, doesn’t mean he should be beatified for it.

    Santorum (who I don’t really know anything about) said it pretty well in the SC debate. This was one tactical decision (made for the wrong reasons as you write) made possible by years of strategic decisions, which The One (termer) fought every inch of the way.

    Actually contemptible is a pretty polite way of putting it. But posting guidelines must be adhered to, n’est ce pas?

    • Kind of humorous if it were not so devastating actually, after 30 months as POTUS he finally made one correct decision.

      Let’s Hope he’s on a roll and decides to Change directions by resigning.

  4. So what do you think? When it comes time to impeach Obama maybe the Republicans should think twice about it because it will just generate a backlash among the media and cause them to adore him even more, thus causing a bunch of Republican Senators to agree with the Democrats that it’s “just about politics”?

      • Obama has fired Inspectors General and scared others into silence. The placement of Rahm Emmanuel in Chicago quelches any investigations coming out of Blago-Revko-Daley, et cetera. Holder is running from Operation Gunrunner as fast as he can, but he will merely resign and clam up if the heat gets too hot. Oh, gee, did we mention Pigford? Pray for James O’Keefe, Andrew Breitbart and other Non-G. operatives who are the only patriots , along with Beck, to have done anything(non-electoral) of consequence in the last two yearsj. Not counting SP and the Death Panels, of course, but leaving her out of it for the moment. It will take the turning of some high level Democrats to get this dragon-slaying off the ground, IMHO. And there are ex-DOJ people knowledgeable of some of these affairs as well. I am still waiting for the list of who has access to Obama’s Blackberry.
