Now available: The Barack Obama/Navy SEAL action figure

posted at 7:48 pm on May 12, 2011 by Allahpundit

Pull the string on its back and it says, “I don’t oppose all wars… What I oppose is a dumb war,” before ordering the bombing of Tripoli. (Joke, joke.)

Close-up pics of the doll, replete with the distinctive nose mole, are available at the HeroBuilders site. If the Democrats’ endless “gutsy call” messaging could be distilled into a single image, this is what that image would be.

Emil Vicale’s firm Hero Builders has made the ‘Rambama’ SEAL Team 6 action figure of a muscular President armed with an M1-A4 gun in honour of the news.

The $34.95 Rambo-style action figure of the 44th President already seems to have been a hit, as the Hero Builders website crashed for periods on Thursday.

‘What is so odd is that we made an action figure of him before he even became President, after he gave his speech in Chicago (in 2004),’ Mr Vicale told NewsFeed.

‘It never resonated with the public, so we think this is the one,’ he said. ‘It’s topical and political. He was the man in charge when we got Osama.’

They’ve got other dolls on sale too, including one of Palin. (Something for voodoo-practicing liberals?) On a more serious note, since I have to redeem this dopey post with some sort of news content, CBS is reporting tonight that the fabled SEAL helmet-cam video of Bin Laden raid does, in fact, exist:

CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports the 40 minutes it took to kill bin Laden and scoop his archives into garbage bags were all recorded by tiny helmet cameras worn by each of the 25 SEALs…

The SEALs first saw bin Laden when he came out on the third floor landing. They fired, but missed. He retreated to his bedroom, and the first SEAL through the door grabbed bin Laden’s daughters and pulled them aside.

When the second SEAL entered, bin Laden’s wife rushed forward at him — or perhaps was pushed by bin Laden. The SEAL shoved her aside and shot bin Laden in the chest. A third seal shot him in the head.

Given the very real risk of Bin Laden pulling a gun and starting to fire as the SEALs approached him, it was fantastically heroic of the first SEAL to pull Bin Laden’s daughters out of the way. He could have been shot dead before he even glanced up. Frankly, it’s nearly miraculous that every American on the scene got out of there in one piece. Exit question: If the feds charged admission, say $10 a pop, to view the helmet-cam video, how much money could they raise? It would be more widely viewed than the Zapruder film.

Sorry if this has already been posted, but he has the FLOTUS’s arms.

Where is the huge George Soros hand accessary up his backside used to manipulate the puppet Obowma?

Special Ops Cody. Accept no substitutes!

It looks like a gang banger.

I think you might need to block MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and Oprah from you television provider…..LOL

DeathB4Tyranny on May 12, 2011 at 9:32 PM

Thanks, DeathB4Tyranny!

I have posters of Rachel Madow, Keith Olberman, Chris Matthews, Joy Behar, Woopie Goldberg, and more, hanging on my walls at home. we also have every magazine, book, and movie that Oprah appeared in, wrote, or is in charge of, and we own a copy of every show ever recorded. She is our heroe. We pray to Oprah in order for Oprah, Peace be Unto Her, to intercede in praying and seeking blessings from our Lord, Barack Barry Soetoro Hussein Obama II.

We are not sure if it works, however, for our tiny children are all starving to death, we have no shoes of clothes for the children, cannot afford medical care, they cannot go to school, they have diseases, and we live in a box in the woods, or sometimes in the sewer if we can.

Our Lord, Barack Hussein Obama II is testing us, seeing how strong our faith is.

Praise to the Messiah, the One, the Savior, Barack Hussein Obama II, more powerful than Rambo, Bruce Leed, Rickson Gracie, Jon Jaque Machado, Randy Couture, or anyone.

He is the Greatest warrior-soldier-fighter in history, and the greastest, most High incarnation of the ultimate Supreme Being evah!

A Steve Urkel doll would have been a better fit. He’s a legend in Soro’s mind

MJZZZ on May 12, 2011 at 10:23 PM

Think of it this way: the very first Muslim action figure. With arms more approaching the shape of his wife’s arms than his own. Perfect irony… in a box.

Obama threw in a major league game this week, pitching. He was clocked at 212 MPH, so fast that he put a hole in the catcher’s hand, nearlty killing the cather.

No batter could even see the ball, let alone hit it. One guy put his bat out and the bat disintegrated when the ball went through it.

Obama even ran down a high fly ball into deep center field, all the way from home plate, caught the ball, and threw all the way to home plate, in 1/250th of a second, preventing a run from scoring. He is the GREATEST Pitcher, fielder, and assist person in baseball history, better than Johnny Callison – one of the geasest throwing arms of any outfielder in history, better than Dave Parker of the Pirates – also one of the greatest throwing arms in baseball history, greater than Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Gary Madox, and so forth.

That skinny little girly man, mister puniverse, is THE GREASTEST of all!

San Diego area High Tech High rescinded an invite to Barak Obama to give the commencement speech because the students analyzed the “birth certificate” and concluded it was forged (they were initially attempting to confirm authenticity). A snippet:

Schooled! High Tech High Students Expose Flaws in Obama’s Long Form Birth Certificate, Rescind Invitation for President to Speak at Commencement

“You don’t really have to look further than the child’s name,” says Bhangoo. “The way the ‘r’ in ‘Barack’ differs in all sorts of ways from the rest of the letters, the way the green background fades away around certain parts of ‘Hussein’ and ‘Obama.’ It’s a Photoshop job, and not even a particularly careful one. We did a little followup work and found a death certificate for a Herbert Harrison O’Brien from the same hospital, dated August 5, 1961. The date of birth on that death certificate is given as August 4, same as little Barack Hussein Obama. But the funny thing is, there’s no corresponding birth certificate for baby Herbert. Where did it go? And why doesn’t Obama’s mother sign his birth certificate until August 7, three days after her son is born? By then, we were too depressed to dig any deeper.”

If you pull his string he say, “Damn, this is one village that deserves air raiding.”

Awesome. Thanks for the link and the smile it gave me.

What I really need to know is–did Obamarambo walk that gun into Mexico or did Eric Holder do it for him?

txhsmom on May 13, 2011 at 12:36 AM

The OBAMA JOKER Doll is winner.

Uh, oh, and then there’s this situation from an Opposing Doll: not bad, too bad at all.

Lourdes on May 13, 2011 at 1:13 AM

Anyone remember that photo of Obama recoiling in girlie-pose at the fun on the White House lawn?

Then there are these:

…among many others, proof that without the LeftMedia retouching and rephrasing the facts, our nation is floundering with the squishiness.

Lourdes on May 13, 2011 at 1:22 AM

That doll has more credibility as commander in chief than the real Obama.

ThePrez on May 12, 2011 at 8:01 PM

That.

Lourdes on May 13, 2011 at 1:26 AM

I’d pay $20 and stick around for a second showing.

Breaking News Alert:

Gutsy Obama Seal Doll Nixed by NLRB. Apparently the doll is manufactured in a right to work province of the People’s Republic of China.

“$10 a pop”? What? Are you trying to retire the national debt in one shot?

{^_-}

All the manufactured hoopla over the President’s ‘gutsiness’ will come back to haunt him and his supporters.

The nation’s new secret weapon. He starts talking and doesn’t shut up until you put your own gun in your mouth and pull the trigger, just so you don’t have to listen to him any more.

Affirmative-action figure.

Second. I actually laughed out loud.

samuelrylander on May 13, 2011 at 11:14 AM

Shouldn’t that be a SEAL with Obama peering out from behind him?

jcrue on May 13, 2011 at 12:38 PM

I thought this clown couldn’t insult our brave military anymore, I was wrong he would probably crap his pants if anyone just made a step toward him.
You’re right the body looks more like Michelles.
Pathetic excuse for the highest office in this once great nation.
