This video perfectly illuminates the sleaziness of Barack Obama's non-stop gloating and bragging as though it was he himself that killed Osama bin Laden. And it happens to come out just in time as members of the SEALs are slamming him for bragging so much about OBL's killing. If you have a calculator handy, you'll need it in counting the number of times President 'I-bama' uses "I." The "I" president absolutely loves himself.
The caption notes:
America knows who deserves the credit for killing Osama Bin Laden -- United States Navy SEALs and the American intelligence community. Join with Veterans for a Strong America and let President Obama know who really deserves the credit.
Remember how the left was so outraged when President Bush discussed the aspect of his presidency that dealt with 9-11, and accused him of politicizing the war on terror? Funny how you don't hear diddly-squat about that now.
And wouldn't you know it, not only does 'I'-Bama constantly brag about killing OBL as though he actually made the hit himself ... the Narcissist-in-Chief goes on to prove no one loves him more than he loves himself by actually giving a shout-out to himslef during his speech to the troops in Afghanistan:
President Obama gave a shout-out to President Obama during a surprise visit to Afghanistan on Tuesday.
merican troops gathered at Bagram Air Base, the president called out the names of several military units "in the house" -- who cheered upon hearing their name -- before adding: "And we've got me in the house."And then there's this -- the bottom line truth -- about the Osama bin Ladin raid and Obama's stolen valor:
A recently disclosed memorandum from then-CIA Director Leon Panetta shows that the president's celebrated derring-do in authorizing the operation included a responsibility-escape clause: "The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven's hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the President for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and if he is not there, to get out."
if the mission went wrong, the fault would be Adm. McRaven's, not the president's.The writer, Michael B. Mukasey, notes how previous presidents have announced military victories -- the pronoun 'I' was strongly disfavored, with presidents preferring to give credit and honor to the men who'd actually risked something more than political fallout (hat tip - Ace).
Not so, with Obama ... as Mukasey points out in his piece:
While contemplating how the killing of bin Laden reflects on the president, consider the way he emphasized his own role in the hazardous mission accomplished by SEAL Team 6:"I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority . ... even as I continued our broader effort.. ... Then, after years of painstaking work by my intelligence community I was briefed ... I met repeatedly with my national security team ... And finally last week I determined that I had enough intelligence to take action ... Today, at my direction ... "That seems a jarring formulation coming from a man who, when first elected, was asked which president he would model himself on and replied, Lincoln.
on the night after Gen. Robert E. Lee's surrender ended the Civil War, delivered from the window of the White House a speech that mentioned his own achievements not at all, but instead looked forward to the difficulties of reconstruction and called for black suffrage -- a call that would doom him because the audience outside the White House included a man who muttered that Lincoln had just delivered his last speech. It was John Wilkes Booth.Meanwhile, as our Narcissist-in-Chief continues to claim credit the OBL raid, he continues to blame everyone and everything for his failures.more
