Obama got Osama!

Remind me again exactly what speech that was that got Osama bin Laden…

EXACTLY…

President Obama has a proven record of success, be it winning the war in Iraq and bringing the troops home or single-handedly finding and killing Osama bin Laden. I think it’s the silly season where reports don’t have anything to write about so they create the most outrageous headlines to draw readers… too bad most of the idiots on here don’t actually read the article, they just come running to the headline…

Improving the economy takes more than speeches, reducing the deficit takes more than speeches, leading takes more than speeches, having an open transparent administration takes more than speeches. What is the one, and only, thing Obama does well? Gives speeches. Well that and taking vacations.

One thing commiecrat, first Obama may have killed bin Laden, we have no proof other than photo's of a man with half his head blown off, a secret burial under muslim rules, and deep sixed so no one can prove different.

If you want to play the plot ploy pookie, you have a dilly right now. The Seals helicopter that went down with three of the Seals Team Six and 5 Afgans on board crashed in an old obsolete machine instead of in a Blackhawk or a newer quieter version. No one will say why they were in a old noisier model and how some terrorist just happened to be on a roof top to fire a RPG at the copter, hitting the main blade. All of those on board were killed and their bodies or remains cremated without family consent. The five arabs were not on the manifest by the way. Bin Laden, the biggest terrorist was given a proper religious muslim burial.........our soldiers were cremated with the families having no say in the matter. Obama gave more to the worlds biggest terrorist than he did our own soldiers and families.

Article highlights:

"Obama’s economic policy is connected to his military leadership in an important, and dangerous, way. His penchant for delivering speeches at the cost of real governing leaves taxpayers, employers, workers, and military professionals wondering what the strategy is exactly.

First, earlier this week the president pivoted again to economic issues....

It was at least the fourth time in his presidency that he introduced a specific focus on job creation. In a reprise of other reprises, Obama went on to explain that he’ll begin — again — to outline a plan for economic growth....

We’ve seen this before. In December 2010, August 2011, and February of this year....

But in four and half years as chief executive, Obama has proven ineffective at working. He rather prefers speechifying. The trend isn’t limited to domestic matters, either. Events overseas have got dangerously chaotic because the president can do little more than preach about a world in which all nations can somehow rise above self interest....

Yet Obama has been the crisis president. No need to dwell on how his former chief of staff famously reveled in the opportunities that crisis brings. Whether it’s a debt ceiling negotiation, a tax expiration, the numerous and mounting difficulties of Obamacare, or a 12-year overseas war, Obama simply survives between crises.

And gives speeches about avoiding them."

I just read an article some days ago that animal rights activists are very concerned in Germany because beastiality is on the rise. The news article also stated that "beastiality clubs" exist in Germany.

Now you take back what you said about the USA bozo. If you guys are not f'ing Jew children and throwing them into ovens, then you're screwing sheep and horses. Vile euro trash.

Speeches don't win wars and Reagan's "Mr. Gorbachev, tear
down that wall!" didn't win the Cold War.

30 years of fighting and spending to counter Soviet
ambitions won the Cold War. Thousands of lives and trillions
of dollars.

That's the price we may yet have to pay.

If anyone has a better idea, now's the time for it.

You're right. Improving the economy does take more than
speeches. It takes effort, but when one political party spends
four years fighting tooth and nail AGAINST improving the
economy, hoping that will bring down the POTUS, it's even
twice as hard.

Funny stuff ... even Obama never claimed he won the war in
Iraq. BTW, have you seen the body count in Iraq this week?

Bin Laden was certain to be captured or killed eventually, it
was just a matter of when. And the reports of those actually
on the scene make Obama look like a fool.

I wish Obama had been in the "War Room" when Benghazi was
going down and not getting his sleep to head for a fundraiser
in Las Vegas.

"A non threatening war on our borders?"

Planes flying into the WTC's meant nothing to you, we guess. Slick willie clinton too busy chasing interns to worry about al queda.
