Quotes of the day

posted at 10:39 pm on April 30, 2012 by Allahpundit

“A serving SEAL Team member said: ‘Obama wasn’t in the field, at risk, carrying a gun. As president, at every turn he should be thanking the guys who put their lives on the line to do this. He does so in his official speeches because he speechwriters are smart.

“‘But the more he tries to take the credit for it, the more the ground operators are saying, ‘Come on, man!’ It really didn’t matter who was president. At the end of the day, they were going to go.’…

“Brandon Webb, a former SEAL who spent 13 years on active duty and served in Iraq and Afghanistan, said: ‘Bush should get partial credit for putting the system in place.’…

“‘My friends that work in Special Operations Command (SOCOM) that have been on video teleconferences with Obama on these kill or capture situations say that Obama has no issue whatsoever with making decisions and typically it’s kill. He’s hitting the kill button every time. I have a lot of respect for him for that.’”

***

“The Obama campaign’s bin Laden ad, which has stirred a fierce debate, looks to some like a hit below the belt, using a questionable premise to make a political argument that Democrats can be just as tough in dealing with the nation’s enemies as Republicans…

“The Obama campaign’s grounds for doing so are one Romney quote that has nothing to do with how he would have handled the bin Laden operation, and another that appears to show Romney had a policy position that would have prevented him from approving the strike, but that crumbles under further inspection of its context…

“Edelman, a top Pentagon official during the presidency of George W. Bush, added a jab at Clinton for not catching or killing bin Laden during his presidency, despite the opportunity.

“‘Interesting choice of messenger since Clinton declined to ‘make the tough choice’ when he had the chance,’ Edelman said.”

***

“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 . . .’

“The man from whom President Obama has sought incessantly to distance himself, George W. Bush, also had occasion during his presidency to announce to the nation a triumph of intelligence: the capture of Saddam Hussein. He called that success ‘a tribute to our men and women now serving in Iraq.’ He attributed it to “the superb work of intelligence analysts who found the dictator’s footprints in a vast country. The operation was carried out with skill and precision by a brave fighting force. Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers. . . . Their work continues, and so do the risks.’…

“He did mention himself at the end: ‘Today, on behalf of the nation, I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate them.’”

***

“That summer, Gillespie turned the Republican National Convention into a martial victory parade. Speaker after speaker bragged that Bush had defeated, deposed, and captured Saddam—and that Kerry couldn’t be trusted to make such tough calls. ‘We have captured or killed hundreds of al-Qaida,’ Vice President Dick Cheney crowed. ‘In Iraq, we dealt with a gathering threat and removed the regime of Saddam Hussein. … Tonight he sits in jail.” Cheney went on: ‘Time and again, Sen. Kerry has made the wrong call on national security. … America needs and America has a president we can count on to get it right.’

“Introducing Bush at the convention, New York Gov. George Pataki reminded voters of the hole in which Saddam had been found: ‘President Bush understands we can’t just wait for the next attack. We have to go after them, in their training camps, in their hiding places, in their spider holes.’ The convention’s keynoter, Sen. Zell Miller, D-Ga., used Saddam’s capture to smear Kerry: ‘As a war protester, Kerry blamed our military. As a senator, he voted to weaken our military. … President Bush is committed to providing the kind of forces it takes to root out terrorists, no matter what spider hole they may hide in.’

“McCain, the main speaker on the convention’s opening night, hailed Bush’s courage: ‘He ordered American forces to Afghanistan and took the fight to our enemies, and away from our shores, seriously injuring al-Qaida and destroying the regime that gave them safe haven. … President Bush made the difficult decision to liberate Iraq. … We need a leader with the experience to make the tough decisions and the resolve to stick with them.’ Romney, in his speech, argued that Kerry lacked this toughness: ‘I don’t believe Sen. Kerry is the leader our country needs. … He’s campaigned against the war all year, but says he’d vote yes today. I don’t want presidential leadership that comes in 57 varieties.’ And Bush, in his acceptance address, described the loneliness of making the call to take down Saddam: ‘I faced the kind of decision that comes only to the Oval Office.’”

***

“It’s true that by explicitly bringing Romney into the ad, the Obama campaign veers from the subtle to the unnecessarily heavy-handed. Yes, Romney said the things Obama says he said in the ad, like ‘It’s not worth moving heaven and earth spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person.’

“Here, however, is the issue. Since at least 1968, Democrats have traditionally been more circumspect than their Republican foes in presidential politics. The lesson of the Clinton years and of Obama’s win of both the nomination and the general election in 2008 is that Democrats need to be as tough as JFK was (tough was a favorite Kennedy term). Is the bin Laden ad fair to Romney? No, not really. But politics is not for the faint of heart…

“The way to put oneself in a position to take the harder, more honorable political path is to argue for one’s virtues in a vigorous way. That’s what Obama has done, and is doing. There’ll be more punches coming.”

***

“In this 2007 interview from National Public Radio’s ‘Diane Rehm Show’ then Senator Joe Biden attacked candidate Obama’s tough talk on Pakistan as ‘naïve.’”

***

“‘I say any president, Jimmy Carter, anybody, any president would have, obviously, under those circumstances, done the same thing. And to now take credit for something that any president would do is indicative of take over campaign we’re under — we’re — we’re seeing…So all I can say is that this is going to be a very rough campaign,’ McCain told Fox News in an interview set to air Monday night. ‘And I’ve had the great honor of serving in the company of heroes. And, you know the thing about heroes, they don’t brag.’”

Obama should have a monument erectd on the mall, somewhere between the Capitol and the Washington Monument.

It would be a big white marble statue of Obama, decked out in the armor of a Roman general; behind him, a line of Seraphs blowing a herald on their horns, and an Archangel would be standing close by with a flaming sword, threatening anyone who draws too near.

I can’t decide whether it would be better for Obama to be wearing a laurel wreath or a crown of thorns. What do you think?

He’s trapped himself in this and it’s only going to get worse for him. He’s insecure and it’s showing.

The Daily Mail article talks about them knowing Osama’s location months before the takedown and Obama waiting to use the capture for maximum political effect. If that can be proven or many people led to believing it to be true, he’s truly toast. Read some of the aol, msn, yahoo, or mainstream blogs on issues concerning Obama. He doesn’t have half the passionate support he had two years ago.

canopfor on April 30, 2012 at 11:01 PM

My God, could you imagine if Obama tried to engage Ron Paul in on this debate? On it’s face, to the emotional war mongers who never processed 9/11, it will seem like Obama would destroy Paul. But Paul would turn it into a general debate on the rule of law and what America represents around the world. I also think an arrest (if possible) of Bin Laden and then subsequent trial would be better than the way they did it. They supposedly kill him then throw him out to sea so nobody can really confirm anything. But it’s from this that if I were running I’d move the topic over to the ASSASINATION of Anwar Awlaki’s 14 year old son who is a U.S. citizen. The justification for that by the mongers is that we’re at war. Well, a war on terror is a never-ending, ill-defined war that has no central battlefield. Therefore that justification means the President now has this mythical authority to kill anyone, anywhere – even in the United States.

But the debate that would transpire would reveal Obama to be the tyrant he is, and those so-called progressives who USED to care about following the rule of law and defending civil liberties will be exposed. If the American system of law and trial justice is so grand, why have we stopped following it? IN many ways we’ve begun to embrace, not the rule of law, but instead we’re using mob rule and the President is at the forefront of that.

Marcus on April 30, 2012 at 11:02 PM

This line of attack is quite legitimate. After all, Republicans would’ve have used the same argument against Obama if the shoe were on the other foot.

If Romney is so risk averse as to avoid attacking Laden, voters need to know that.

profitsbeard on April 30, 2012 at 11:12 PM

From the first article Allah quotes:

Chris Kyle, a former SEAL sniper with 160 confirmed and another 95 unconfirmed kills to his credit, said: ‘The operation itself was great and the nation felt immense pride. It was great that we did it….

‘In years to come there is going to be information that will come out that Obama was not the man who made the call. He can say he did and the people who really know what happened are inside the Pentagon, are in the military and the military isn’t allowed to speak out against the commander- in-chief so his secret is safe.’

4Grace on April 30, 2012 at 11:12 PM

Never once did George Bush steal credit from the military, Obama shamelessly portrays himself as the killer of OBL.

George Bush always decided for the creation of jobs, this President has always decided against employment, unless it was union employment beholden to him politically.

Obama is a Marxist, the words out of his mouth don’t always show he is but his actions and his words in private betray his true beliefs.

He’s the product of the Black liberation Theology indoctrination of James Cone.
The more you learn about it, the more disturbing it is.

If he’s our next President hideaways will be occupied and capital and its owners will go on vacation, permanently.

that is because they are America’s enemies,
NOT Hussein’s enemies

Don’t miss the history of Obama’s “Forward” slogan…Lenin in person…though he looks like Mussolini too.

SparkPlug on April 30, 2012 at 11:18 PM

And Bush, in his acceptance address, described the loneliness of making the call to take down Saddam: ‘I faced the kind of decision that comes only to the Oval Office.’”
That entire long quote inadvertantly makes it so clear how ridiculous Obama’s victory dance is.
What Bush did was the antithesis of a no-brainer, especially going after Saddam. Whatever you thought of his decision, I bet everyone here, from the Neois-Neoconservative of Neoland to the Paleoist of the Paleocons of Paleoville would agree that it was an appropriate topic for debate that year.

Where’s your riding crop Obungler ?

Considering how the Democrats deep-sixed OBL faster than Mary Jo Kopechne it’s no less possible the whole incident as claimed by the White House Propaganda Ministry is suspect.

“‘My friends that work in Special Operations Command (SOCOM) that have been on video teleconferences with Obama on these kill or capture situations say that Obama has no issue whatsoever with making decisions and typically it’s kill. He’s hitting the kill button every time. I have a lot of respect for him for that.’”

Why doesn’t Pontius (“My hands are clean!”) Obama want to gather intel?

He’s even screwed this up.

Unreal.

aquaviva on April 30, 2012 at 10:46 PM

It really is unreal. Forget his usual MO with the “Me, Myself & I” cr@p (he’s always done that although no one on the Left will admit it) — all he had to do here was keep Romney and what he would/wouldn’t have done out of it. But with a narcissist like Obama that is impossible — once he perceives he’s been insulted, he has to attack that person regardless of any backlash (not that he is even capable of comprehending that anything he says would backlash on him). It is the same reason he had to bring Sarah Palin into things at the WHCD — he can’t let her *insults* (his POV) go, even if that means he’ll bring up dog eating to do get “back” at her.

Sarah has been living rent free inside Obama’s head since October 2008 when she started the “palling around with terrorists” meme. Hopefully now that it appears Romney is already living rent free inside his head he’ll self-destruct before the GE. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I want to see a complete breakdown by Obama on TV with tears, finger pointing & screaming. Between the Romney campaign seemingly being willing to engage (unlike McCain) and things like Treacher’s #obamadogrecipes, I’m thinking I might get my wish.

I noticed slugs like Upper still ignore the issue of calling Bush a war criminal and letting Obama not only slide but his celebration of an assassination. You’re a bunch of sad little lackey pukes.

CW on April 30, 2012 at 11:24 PM

“‘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 . . .’

What is wrong with this nitwit?
