7:50pm = Joe B., trying to make it seem that Obama doesn't loathe the military.

Maybe NOW Obama will kill the Gitmo inmates. On TV!

Hey Joe,

I thought Obama was anti-military.

Maybe now he can explain why we're in Libya.

It's too bad that Obama tried, but failed, to get the terror trials in NYC via Eric Holder. That's going to follow him around forever.

Not to mention Holder's Justice Dept refusing to prosecute the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation because the victims were white.

Obama isn't a president for all Americans. Just for the blacks. Even the Latinos have largely abandoned him.

And unemployment in California still teems at 12%

This makes the SOLDERS and Petraeus heroes, not Obama and Joe "Stand up and let us take a look at you, Chuck," Biden.

Remember when Obama said that the Cambridge, Mass, cops acted "stupidly" before ever speaking with them?

The "teachable moment" was not to elect another black man as pezzident, which won't likely happen again in our lifetime.

Joe B = 9:10pm, not realizing that Obama couldn't do this without W setting it in motion.

Obama is not going to be confused with a patriot at any time in his life. Obama hates the military.

I was standing in line at my bank the other day, and some black dude was trying to convince people that Obama needs another term to prove himself.

The desperation of those trying to prop up B. HUSSEIN Obama is hilarious.

Joe, why are we in Libya? Can you tell us, since BHO won't?'

He did that without Congressional approval. It's un-Constitutional for us to be in Libya.

Some Constitutional expert Obama turned out to be!

Ironic. If George W Bush has said what Obama had said, the left wing lunies would have condemned him for celebrating the death of a foreigner on foreign soil by US military forces who were committing an act of aggression in a sovereign country.

There would be calls for Bush to be impeached for violating international treaties, and there would have been calls for prosecution for war crimes by the limp-wristed Europeans in the Hague.

Oh well, I guess Obama can go ahead and shut down Gitmo now, mission accomplished.

GW Bush is the real hero here for being the man on the scene on 9/11/01.

All BHO did was follow through on the great foundation that GW laid.

Mark my words, Obama is going to lose the office for his stupidity in saying things like "The Cambridge cops acted stupidly" without having first spoken with them.

For a guy who is supposed to be a good speaker, aside from his reliance on a teleprompter, he really put his foot in his mouth on that one.

Even BIDEN falls asleep at his speeches!

Okay everyone. Let's get past the part politics for just one night.
This is a celebration we can all share in.
So, repeat after me:

"Ding Dong! The Witch is dead. Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
Wake up - sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead. She's gone where the goblins go,
Below - below - below. Yo-ho, let's open up and sing and ring the bells out.
Ding Dong' the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Witch is dead!"

I just read in the Daily News the following:

So....Mr. Anonymous says we should never elect another black man as President. What a brave "anonymous" patriot he is! Probably as brave as Bin Laden, who used a woman and his son as human shields. Don't forget---Bush sat reading a picture book to five-year old kids for nearly a half hour after he was told the WTC was attacked.

I can't believe the Pesident haters on this blog. It took real guts for President Obama to order this mission. If it had not gone well, the President would have suffered the same fate as Jimmy Carter when the Iranian Hostage rescue attempt went down in flames in the desert. If I recall, President George Bush answered a question about Bin Laden saying he doesn't think about him that much. Thank goodness for a real man in the White House.

Here is a quick premier in dealing with the right’s bitterness today:

1) They will lectures you not to politicize terrorism. You write, “So, you’re flip flopping from when Bush blamed Clinton for not getting Bin Laden? Oh, and by the way, President Obama got Osama.” (Never let them steer the topic away from the very thing they are trying to avoid.)

2) Righties suggest we can’t be sure Osama is dead. You say, “You asked us to believe Sarah Palin had a brain against all evidence. I’m willing to go with the President here and assume that he and the CIA know more about what they’re doing than you do, since you keep steering us wrong. Oh, and President Obama got Osama Bin Laden.” (If you must respond to a troll, make it hurt. Always bring up something they do not want to have mentioned and follow it up with the narrative they are most trying to avoid. After all, they wouldn’t be trolling if they weren’t trying to reframe the debate.)

3) The bitter right will snark that Obama is mourning the death of his “brother” Osama. You say, “Wow, that’s big of you to admit that he loves his country so much that he would kill his own brother to defend the USA, which is more than I can say for any Republican. Just what was Bush’s excuse for not going after Bin Laden? Oh, that’s right, he said he wasn’t concerned about him. Oh, and by the way, Obama got Osama.” (Handy link to the video of Bush saying he wasn’t concerned about Bin Laden. You might be feeling petty right now, but remember, you are dealing with paid trolls with the mindset of being out to disrupt the dialogue and equilibrium and most especially, the narrative. Even trolls don’t like being mocked lightly.)

4) The Fox News watching set will say that Obama shouldn’t be trying to take credit for this and they bend over backwards to pretend like they care about the troops. They may say he “snubbed” Bush and has “no class” (you know how the repeat everything their masters tell them). You say, “God Bless Our troops. If only Bush had cared about getting Osama way back after 9/11, eh? But then, we tried it your way and it didn’t work so the President decided to use intelligence and look where that got us. Shocking, I know! Would you prefer we keep giving Bush credit for things he didn’t do, just to make you feel better, sort of like oh, gee, I dunno, an handicap or reparations for Bush’s failures? Oh, and by the way, Obama got Osama.” (Remember not to go back and follow up with the troll; you are engaging in hit and run here, not dialogue. A troll is never up for dialogue. Your intention is to hit them hard, bring up the issue they want to avoid, and reiterate reality.)

5) Desperately, they will state that Obama was only following Bush’s lead. You say, “Technically, Bush was following Clinton’s lead on trying to find Osama, and he had 8 years to do it but failed. Luckily we elected a smart guy who got him in 2. Oh, and by the way, Obama got Osama.” (You can always begin any of these with “Bless your bitter little heart, honey.” or “Bless George Bush’s failed presidency.”)

You may consider following any of the above with “How’s that tough on national security thingy working out for y’all?” if you’re feeling particularly Dixie Chick revengey. Do remember that you are not engaging in intelligent debate and the point of this is to have a phrase that sticks, not 608 points of truth. You know facts are of no interest to them so don’t waste your time. Save facts for debates on Democratic Underground and Balloon Juice. After all, if you’re dealing with a troll of this level, you are not among reasonable peers.

Don't forget......the day after the 9-11 attack, George Bush made sure the extended Bin Laden family got safely out of the U.S., by having two planes chartered for them----even though no other planes were allowed to fly. And the morning of the attack, Bush Sr. was having breakfast with another member of the Bin Laden family.
