Obama Breaks Arm
Patting Himself On The Back

One of the most accurate articles written (assessing the self indulgent bragging by our President) on Obama's address of two nights ago was the editorial in the Washington Times titled "No Class: Obama snubs Bush, praises himself" that started out as follows:

It can be awkward when a dove tries to pass himself off as a war hero. From the tone of President Obama’s speech Sunday night, it’d be easy to conclude he was the one who came up with the idea that America should hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden. He also made it sound like he was the one who formulated the takedown plan...

“Shortly after taking office,” the president said, “I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the capture or death of Osama bin Laden the highest priority of the war on terror.”

It is insulting that this man thinks so little of our intelligence that he would actually pretend this was something he can claim credit for initiating. A more adult response came from a number of former officials in both the Bush and Clinton administrations who thanked our fabulous military, the revitalized CIA and the excellent job performed by the courageous Seals who actually risked their lives to pull this off.

Does Obama really think we do not remember that he was going to close Gitmo, end the interrogations and try these people in civilian courts, having first provided them with their Miranda rights and an American taxpayer funded team of lawyers? When the Seal double tapped the gutless Bin Laden as he hid behind his wife, I wonder if he was slow to surrender because he expected a Miranda warning first? Attorney General Holder had promised that would happen.

It is certainly arguable that Barack Obama's speech on this can be classified as either no class or low class, but nothing else is reasonable. What a petty little man.

Thank You, glad I'm not the only person who thought his speech was a little egotistical. Do ya think it's part of his re-election strategy?

Everything he does is a part of his re-election. He has not stopped campaigning since he got elected the first time.
