The Politicization Of Bin Laden’s Killing Beginning Already

Well, that didn’t take long. From Michelle Malkin:

Leftists are swarming Twitter to chastise any conservatives who dare give any credit to President Bush for his resolve and role in leading the post-9/11 counterrorism/national security response to the worst attack on American soil.

Meanwhile, Democrat hacks are burning the midnight oil making this All About Obama.

It begins: “New DNC chief: Obama deserves credit for bin Laden killing.”

A Huffington Post reporter gloats: “Chants of ‘four more years!’ in front of WH.”

College kids in front of the White House are chanting “Yes We Can!” according to a beaming CNN reporter.

Spotted at the White House gathering: “Latinos for Obama” sign.

And Democrat Rep. Gary Ackerman doesn’t waste a second taking a swipe at President Bush:

So much for that we-are-one unity President Obama invoked earlier tonight, eh?

Obama administration adviser David Gergen has said that both Presidents Obama and Bush should be credited. I agree with that, though the lion’s share of the credit should go to the intelligence operatives who tracked him down and the guys who pulled the trigger.

But Bush started this manhunt, and when the time came to give the order to pull the triggers Obama made the right call.

Kudos to all of them. This is a victory for us as a nation, though I suppose the political haymaking is inevitable.

    Bush started it, but de-emphasized it’s importance and Obama re-invested money troops and intelligence on the job. Obama just didn’t make the right call, he made the right calls for the last 2-1/2 years, just as he promised on the campaign trail.

        Bush cared about as much at catching Osama as Shrill Lib Idiot does changing his underwear

        • 2hotel9

          Yea! W didn’t care, he didn’t set all this in motion, he did not issue the standing orders to find bin Laden, he did not put in place every asset that made this happen. Go ahead, tranni, keep defending your Muslim terrorist heroes. Show us all what you really are.

    • Syd

      Bush gave a standing order to the CIA to get Bin Laden. The order was never “de-emphaszided”
      The only right calls Obummer has made the last couple of years were based on someone elses policies and decisions. he’s a know nothing, just like you.

      • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

        I am glad Obama doubled down on spending, tripled or quadrupled the forces to Afghanistan and made catching Bin Laden his top priority in Pakistan. I am sorry that is a harsh reality for you to swallow.

        Osama Beengotten, bitch!

        • Syd

          Bush’s standing order to the CIA would have given any President the information needed to get Bin Laden.
          Bin Laden beengotten, ASSHOLE!

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            There is no “standing order” from a previous president. Obama could have shut it down, but he chose to double down.

      Herpitized, you posted Osama’s terrorist manifesto here on this site. You are a well known terrorist sympathizer, as well as a diseased and lying liberal POS.

      • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

        The Bush White House released the manifesto. It’s there so people can read it and learn wth he was trying to say and for the public to read.

        WillHuntForFood, you should have chosen the sock puppet name Stupid Loony Idiot, it would have been more accurate.

        • 2hotel9

          Keep defending your Muslim terrorist hero, it is all you have ever done here, tranni.

        WillHuntForFood, you idiot. You can keep using a sockpuppet, but you can’t produce a link to support your ad hominems.

        Let’s remind people of what a terrible human you are:

        “Herpitized, I am going to call your employer and tell them what a POS you are. You are on this site all day and I am going to tell them how much you talk about women and your phony commission sheet that you posted. You can’t possibly have made $30k in one month you lying POS. You won’t be able to do a thing to stop me.” -WillHuntForFood

        That’s why you were banned and now you are using a sock puppet.

            Herpitized, thanks for admitting you are the one who hacked my old ID I used to use on SAB and posted all the homosexual filth using it. I already knew it was you. Its very telling that you, a liberal fruit who votes for the party of degenerates, uses homosexual filth. You are such a hater, LOL!!! I caught you “liking” your own posts, lying about your income, and constantly demonstrate what a pervert POS you are. No wonder you are obsessed with me. You are the joke of SAB.

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            WillHuntForFood let’s remind everyone what a complete liar you are:

            “Herpitized, you are such a diseased liar, you did not make over $30,000.00 in on month, there is no way someone would pay you that much. My boyfriend, who is a multimillionaire makes $30,000.00 a month and there is no way that you do.” – WillHuntForFood 11/22/2009

    Of course leftards will politicize it, that is what they do. And now they will screech endlessly for the war against terror to be stopped entirely.

    It is a sad truth that today everything is politicized, whether it should be or not. This is one that should not in any way, shape or form be used for anyone’s political benefit. Bin Laden got what he deserved and that it a very good thing. Justice has been served and America should be happy for that. To the Navy Seals that carried out this mission – our eternal thanks. To Presidents Bush and Obama, thank you for pursuing this scum to this most satisfactory of conclusions. To any and all that would use this and any of the events that have lead us to this point for political gain – you are not fit to polish the boots of the brave soldiers that have fought for the last ten years to keep this country safe.

    it is great achievement by our military and should be looked at as just an event now move forward. This all seems fishy as more details come out, Packistan knew where he was, what changed?

  • mikemc1970

    This was completely a political killing. They’ve known where OBL was for a while. Obama just needed a boost in the polls so he finally decided to go after him, regardless of any consequences, just like the Democrats make laws.

            Yes, a well known firing range called the target. You know I’m right, just like I was right about Couric kicking rocks.

            I am pretty sure that you are right in the mind, in certain circles. Usually the ones where people themselves are running in circles, in their very own rubber room.

        I liked this. Idiot’s have few thoughts that one could consider entertaining, but I will say that, for an idiot, your thoughts are very entertaining. Too bad that you yourself cannot benefit. It’s more likely that whatever generates your thoughts is entertained by you. None of it has anything to do with anyone else. It’s called “mental masturbation.”

        • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

          Do you also believe the American military was operating a cover up to hide Bin Laden’s location in order to save capturing him for another day, where Obama could look good in the peoples eyes, just so he could get TeaBaggers all wee weed up?

          That’s some mighty impressive thinkin on your part, Flamer.

          • mikemc1970

            Obama is the biggest political hack there ever was, of course he would hold something like this back for political gain. Just like he would use the Arizona shooting for political gain and the memorial as a campaign kickoff. What an absolute imbecile you are.

          • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

            Why don’t you try and stop looking like a conspiracy theorist wackadoodle and admit you are wrong about the government knowing exactly where Osama was, but was saving his capture or death in order to make Obama look like a bad@ss?

  • http://ndgoon.blogspot.com/ Goon

  • noblindersonme

    #@%* you 2hotel2 , my God how can you make that ignorant comment about Bin laden ‘being our (leftist) hero! ! What possible positive result can you acheive by such vile drivel? I know I have taken many of the stances you would consider ‘leftish’ postions in your sour view , and I, as many of those who also have the courage to wander into this den who also think as I do, DO NOT ,NOR NEVER HAVE FOUND OSAMA TO BE ANYTHING BUT THE ULTIMATE VILLIAN!!! HE WAS AMERICA”S ENEMY #1. JUSTICE PREVAILED!!!
    interesting that the topic here is the politicizing of his killing ,and cretins like hotel mike sbark etc are all energized with their political mudslinging.
    Admit it! in the past 2 years the pursuit of Osam bin laden was put far down on the list of what concerned the smallminded partisans who blog here.The archives that exist on blogs like this can prove my statement! The ‘war on terror ‘ used to be concern # 1 for years for the screaching right. But the last couple of years which coincided with -guess what- a dem in office ,the screaching right has fixiated itself on most everything but the pursuit of Osama. Remember last year at this time the right wing nuts were mad that BHO was addressing our school children (” he is indocrinating them with his socialist views! stay in school , study hard!”) That’s one example , do I need to stress how the ‘birther’ issue so fixated the right !!!
    Today we can yammer all we want about who is to blame or who takes the credit and yammer you will . but one thing can not be denied is that this administration did NOT relent or take it’s eye off the ball , They got it done! This surly bunch can complain all you want but you can NOT say that BHO failed to complete the job!!!!!!

    • 2hotel9

      Clearly he is your hero, otherwise you would not be screeching so effeminately about him being dead. Now, screech so more, tell us again how America is evil and how much you hate us. I order you to, whinny lying c*nt.

      • mikemc1970

        I don’t know if it’s hero worship the Left has shown towards Islamic Extremism. It’s more of an “Art of War” thing. The left in this Country hates everything American, so it’s an enemy of my enemy is my friend kind of a relationship.

      Your quote is somewhat of an exageration, but when citizens become unemployed, lose their pensions and retirements, and still watch taxes, fees and regulations increase, their focus tends to be directed at their immediate family needs, wouldn’t you say?
      “this administration did NOT relent or take it’s eye off the ball”.
      No, they did not – they just continued the policies and programs of President Bush in regards to the War on Terror. Even though you Liberals supported B.O. because he promised a totally different world and “Change”.
