President Obama’s campaign is hammering on a Mitt Romney quote from 2007, to suggest–quite strongly–that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee would not have had the guts to approve the Usama bin Laden raid if he were president, according to a FOXNews article today.
The ad achieves a heretofore unmatched galactic level of hypocrisy and audacity, while revealing the true height of his campaign’s fear of the November election.
Since first becoming a U.S. Senator in January 2005, the most Liberal member of the U.S. Senate, voted against every measure that allowed Seal Team Six to finally send Usama bin Laden to his maker–one year ago this Wednesday.
If these [mostly] Democrat votes had carried the majority–there would be no such thing as the Afghan War, Gitmo, waterboarding, the Patriot Act, the Iraq surge and the Afghan surge.
In fact, just prior to the surge, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) and Democrats had the temerity to declare the Iraq War lost on the floor of the Senate, which was a huge slap in the face of our brave men and women in the U.S. military–the majority of whom are Republicans, who live by a creed of character, honor and integrity.
A stark contrast to the now totally disgraced “Occupy Wall Street” movement–openly adored by the Democrat party and funded by Labor Unions.
And as President Obama had no military or executive experience whatsoever before becoming president, the only action he likely took, other than asking questions, was to chose between the two different Seal Team Six-supplied warfighting scenarios–then autograph the order.
Once the deed was done, every mainstream media outlet banged the drums, calling Obama’s actions “gutsy and courageous”–when even he knows that it was actually the decade-long diligent pursuit of UBL by the very military he and Democrats attempted to foil at every turn.
Adding even more dishonor was the inclusion of Bill Clinton’s narrative in the ad, as it was President Clinton who was first pressed by the military to give a “go order” when they had UBL in the cross-hairs–but Clinton failed to act…perhaps because he was too busy sharing a cigar with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
Toping off this tower of rich irony is the fact that while President Obama is doing the important work of performing slow jams on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night comedy show, V.P. Joe Biden has been tapped as the foreign relations spokes person for the campaign…
While appearing on Special Report with Brett Baier last Thursday, regular panel member and syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer awarded Joe Biden the record for being wrong on the most issues in foreign affairs ever, over the past 30 years, according to the archived video of the segment at time line April 27, 2012, on the Theodore’s World website.
“… And the list starts with the nuclear freeze in the early ’80s against Thatcher and Reagan and Cole which is one of the follies of the era. He supported it.”
“He was against aid to the Nicaraguan Contras which in the end brought democracy and ended the Sandinista rule at the time. He was against Reagan’s expansion of the defense budget, which bankrupted the Soviet Union and led to the end of the Soviet Empire. He was against Reagan on Strategic Defenses, which is the big advantage that we have now in the missile age.”
Krauthammer concluded by saying … “And look at where he was on Iraq. He opposed the first Iraq War–the Gulf War that liberated Kuwait that everybody agrees was a good thing. [Then] he supported the Iraq War which he, not I, says was a terrible mistake. And then when the surge happened, he opposed the surge in Iraq, which rescued a losing war and ended with our leaving with our heads held high and some promise in the future.”
The ad ends with a written question: “Which path would Mitt Romney have taken?”
Barack Obama’s shot at Governor Romney’s proven, CEO-level decision-making record will likely ricochet—resulting in yet another self-inflicted wound.
