The mother of a fallen Navy SEAL said President Barack Obama has a lot of “audacity” to approve an ad which elevates his decision to kill Osama bin Laden over the SEALs who actually carried out the mission, the Paulding County Republican Examiner reported.

In the ad created by the Obama campaign, called “One Chance,” Obama was praised by former President Bill Clinton for his decision to go ahead with the bin Laden raid.

The ad paints Obama as a tough decision maker but fails to acknowledge the SEALs who put their lives on the line during the raid. At one point in the video Clinton asks, what about the downside if a Navy SEAL had been captured or caught?

Karen Vaughn, the mother of fallen SEAL Aaron Carson Vaughn, blasted the ad.

“You know, when you lose a child, there is nothing like it in the world,” she said.“And one thing you realize immediately is your life will never be the same. And, and you take 30 years of your life and you just say ... you just pretend it didn’t exist. That’s what it’s like in dealing with a loss of a child.”

“And that man [Obama] has the audacity to put his signature and stamp of approval on an ad where Bill Clinton says “Just imagine what the downside would have been for Obama if the Seals would have been captured or killed,” Vaughn told the Examiner.“How out of touch can a human being be?”

Vaughn’s son died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan along with 16 other SEALs. The form letter sent to her from the White House was signed by electronic pen and not by Obama personally, according to the Examiner.

Conservatives are so predictable, and all identical!

Why do conservatives all think that repeating somebbody's words back to them is a valid form of debate? most people stop doing this in the 3rd grade!

Anyhow, Obama should tout that he Killed OBL every day!

Had Bush done his job, her son wouldnt have needed to be in Afghanistan in the first place.

THEN SHE TRIED TO BLAME CLINTON BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH AH

You Fool! Obama didn't want OBL dead. He wanted him brought to trial! The Seals took care of business.

New book says President Barack Obama hoped to put Osama bin Laden on trial, showing the U.S. commitment to due process under law, if the al-Qaida leader had surrendered during a U.S. raid in Pakistan last year.

In ‘‘The Finish,’’ journalist Mark Bowden quotes the president as saying he thought he would be in a strong political position to argue in favor of giving bin Laden the full rights of a criminal defendant if bin Laden went on trial for masterminding the Sept. 11 attacks.

But Bowden, who also wrote ‘‘Black Hawk Down’’ about the 1993 battle in Somalia where two helicopters were downed, killing 18 U.S. soldiers, says Obama expected bin Laden to go down fighting. A team of Navy SEALs raided bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011 and killed bin Laden.

The Associated Press purchased a copy of ‘‘The Finish,’’ which is due to come out Oct. 16, a few weeks before the presidential election. The revelation that Obama hoped to capture bin Laden may provide political fodder for Republicans who have criticized the Obama administration for trying to bring terrorists from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and overseas to trials in U.S. courts.

‘‘Frankly, my belief was if we had captured him, that I would be in a pretty strong position, politically, here, to argue that displaying due process and rule of law would be our best weapon against al-Qaida, in preventing him from appearing as a martyr,’’ Obama is quoted saying in an interview with Bowden.

Obama believed that affording terrorists ‘‘the full rights of criminal defendants would showcase America’s commitment to justice for even the worst of the worst,’’ Bowden writes.

Obama had expressed similar views as a presidential candidate.

U.S. officials have said the Navy team was ordered to capture bin Laden if he surrendered or kill him if he threatened them. Bowden asserts that the SEALs could have taken bin Laden alive, but had no intention of doing so.

Bowden’s extensive access to top figures, from the president to the raid’s operational commander, Adm. Bill McRaven, may revive criticism from Republicans that the White House allegedly leaks about the raid to burnish its foreign policy record during an election year,

Bowden details how the White House planned the mission and explains that the specific American team was chosen because it had ‘‘already successfully conducted about a dozen secret missions inside Pakistan.’’

The recounting of the raid matches most previous versions. But Bowden also offers new insights from the first-person perspective of the officer who commanded it on the ground.

After McRaven told then-CIA director Leon Panetta he had a ‘‘Geronimo’’ call — the radio code that meant the SEALs had found bin Laden — the admiral realized he had not asked whether bin Laden was dead or had been captured.

McRaven checked again with the SEALs on the ground before relaying that bin Laden had likely been killed. But McRaven cautioned Panetta to ‘‘manage his expectations’’ until they had more definitive proof, by comparing his photographs with the dead man.

Thanks pal, we're in a fight for our lives against those Obama bone smokers who want to destroy our Amerika.

We must remain united in our small-minded racist views and our utter disdain for highly educated successful people of all colors.

Stop over some time.
I bet you'd enjoy the All-Male Naked Polka Party I host in my garage.

Would you like to go trick-or-treating with me and a few friends this Halloween? We're going to be the Village People; you could be that gay cop...oh my, you already are!

Don't be stupid!

If Clinton had taken care of business there would have been no 9-11 and no need for Bush to get Bin Laden. OBL was found because of policies and procedures the Bush administration put in place and Obama wanted to get rid of till he was told how stupid it would be to stop them.

As for security, tell that to Libyan ambassador Chris Stevens! Oh, nevermind, he was murdered because he wasn't provided the proper security he requested. What did the so-called "Greatest President in History" call it.... a “bump in the road”! Tell that to the families of the slain.

Yeah, OBL is dead. Tell that to Ambassador Stevens. Al Qaeda is stronger than ever! Great job Obama. Still no reaction from him. Too busy campaigning. At least Clinton launched a few cruise missiles their way.

3000 deaths, Clinton's fault. No matter how many times you say it was Bush's fault it does not make it true.

When are you liberals going to stop blaming Bush for all their failures. Just proves their incompetence by continuing to blame Bush. "We can't fix it! It's Bush's fault"!

4 people dead. Just 4 bumps in the road according to Obama. Is that what he really meant by shovel ready jobs?

Typical liberal behavior.

Give Romney a chance and if he doesn't do better, Obama can always run again and so can Hillary Clinton. Obama and MSNBC are trying to scare you witless. When a politician can win fair, he tried scare tactics and that's what Obama, Biden and MSNBC are trying to do.

I'm a navy veteran and during my time we fought against socialism and radical Islam 1982-1992.

Things are much worse in America, the Middle East and Putin's Russia is on the rise and Obama wants to turn America into a dependent nanny state where the people will have to rely on government handouts. We don't want European socialism and to become like Greece or Spain.

Look at all the rioting going on there now since they had to make major cutbacks because they're going broke. With Obama spending 5.4 trillion dollars and a debt over 16 trillion dollars we must chance course and stop spending money we're borrowing form the Chinese. Thank you.

Listen up good Americans. Even though Yahoo is biased and loves Obamna, the American people have come to the call with their comments on Topix which are over 90% against Obama and his socialist plan for our country. I don't know where the liberal news stations get their pollsand who they call but it's obvious here and on other websites that Americans are AGAINST Obama's policies that have failed and ran up 5.4 trillion dollars more to our national debt.

Please vote Obama out so we can once again return America to it's glorious past knowing that we should cut spending, have less government but with regulations that would create any big disaster by the banks.

Contrary to what Obama and the Democrats want you to believe, this disaster didn't start in 2008 and it wasn't just in America but all over the world.It ws caused by spending beyond our
revenue and the greed of unions. Jimmy Carter's CRA and Bill Clinton's repel of the Glass-
Steagal act was a disaster waiting to happen and with Democrats Chris Dodd and Barney Frank
chairmen of the banking committee and saying everything was great led to this epic disaster in
our economy.

With Obama out of office we can have a fresh start were we can rebuild our nation and have a
strong national defense against an uncertain future with unrest in the Middle East, Iran
building nuclear weapons, Putin's Russia once again acting like bullies and cyber attacks that
our trying to shut down vital systems in our country to try and create chaos. We need a strong leader like Mitt Romney to counter any attemps to destroy our great country and stop any further Muslim terrorist attacks against our homeland and abroad. ie BENGHAZIGATE coverup by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Jay Carney.
