Translation:

'We Republicans had 7 years to get bin Laden and failed; Obama's administration claimed success in less than 3 years. We're embarrassed as hell about that, so we'll blame Obama for being "unfair" and "exploiting" their success in punishing America's number one enemy.'

The Navy Seals deserve all the glory...That's a no-brainer because on the other hand the cut and run lord marshal b. h. obama and his self-serving treasonous democRat ilk tried their best to inspire the enemy through Al Jazerra and undermine success in Iraq all at the expense US Soldiers on the battlefield. The despicable democRat Party was without question the Toyko Rose of Operation Iraqi Freedom...

Democrat John Kerry, Feb. 2007: "The simple fact is that sending in over 20,000 additional troops isn't the answer--in fact, it's a tragic mistake. It won't end the violence; it won't provide security; ...it won't turn back the clock and avoid the civil war that is already underway; it won't deter terrorists, who have a completely different agenda; it won't rein in the militias."
• Democrat Dennis Kucinich, Feb. 2007: "It has been proven time and time again that troop surges don't work."
• Democrat Harry Reid, Apr. 2007: "The war is lost... This surge is not accomplishing anything."
• Democrat Christopher Dodd, Apr. 2007: "We don't need a surge of troops in Iraq... there is no military solution in Iraq. To insist upon a surge is wrong."
• Democrat Barack Obama, Jul. 2007: "My assessment is that the surge has not worked."
• Democrat Dick Durbin, Aug. 2007: "By carefully manipulating the statistics, the Bush-Petraeus report will try to persuade us that violence in Iraq is decreasing and thus the surge is working. Even if the figures were right, the conclusion is wrong."
• Democrat Jan Schakowsky, Aug. 2007: "I believe overall the surge is a failure....It’s clear to me we cannot win..."
• Democrat Joe Biden, Sep. 2007: "We should stop the surge and start bringing our troops home...[When asked whether Iraq closer to political reconciliation than before the surge began, and would continuing the operation stop the killing between Sunnis, Shi'ites and Kurds?]...The answer to both those questions is no."
• Democrat John Kerry, Sep. 2007: ""The president's escalation ... has failed to achieve its goal of bringing about a resolution of the fundamental conflict between Sunni and Shi'ite."
• Democrat Chris Dodd, Sep. 2007: "It pains me to say that ... the surge tactic is a failure — and that failure is reconfirmed everyday by unfolding events in Iraq."
• Democrat Barack Obama, Oct. 2007: "[The surge is a] complete failure... Iraq’s leaders are not reconciling. They are not achieving political benchmarks."
• Democrat Harry Reid, Nov. 2007: "It is indisputable that the goals of the surge have failed."
• Democrat Joe Biden, Nov. 2007: "This whole notion that the surge is working is fantasy."
• Democrat Nancy Pelosi, Feb. 2008: "There haven't been gains [in Iraq]... The gains have not produced the desired effect, which is the reconciliation of Iraq. This is a failure. This is a failure."
• Democrat Carl Levin, Apr. 2008: "...the purpose of the surge as announced by President Bush last year... has not been achieved"
• Democrat Joe Biden, Apr. 2008: "The purpose of the surge was to bring violence in Iraq down so that its leaders could come together politically. Violence has come down, but the Iraqis have not come together... We Democrats understand that this war must end..."
• Democrat Bill Richardson, Jun. 2008: "[when asked if he was ready to concede that John McCain had been right in proposing the surge, said] "Absolutely not."

The above is the kind of clown who is stupid enough to pay homage to a community organizer who for years worked with and launched his political career from the home of bill ayers. Yepper bill ayers a communist terrorist with a rap sheet a mile long. Yepper bill ayers the sneaky little America hating rat connected directly to a bomb which he designed and blew up killing his girlfriend and two comrades. That bomb was intended for US Soldiers stationed at Fort Dix NJ and attending a dance with civilians.
America needs to come to the conclusion that the intentions of the lord marshal b. h. obama are that of the anti-Americanism company he keeps. Decent people have the common sense not to ever associate with any individual like bill ayers whose tactics included killing parents so why would they vote for any full grown fool who did closely associate with ayers for years and launch his political career from the home of bill ayers? Obviously placing your country in the hands of b. h. obama is much worse than leaving your daughter alone with bill clintoon.

Utterly disgusting, stupid, dishonest, and slanderous nonsense, exactly what I'd expect from a far Right extremist like yourself.

Birther? I don't waste time with redundancies; though the "birthers" have the upper hand of being correct, depending upon to whom you listen, it's really inconsequential. We have the issue that no one has ever been able to find the long-form of his birth certificate in the alleged state of birth, Hawaii. Even the Governor couldn't find it. Last year, about 2 weeks after the alleged killing of Bin Laden, Obama finally presented what they claimed to be the long-form, which is the real birth certificate, up to this point it had always been the short-form which is unacceptable as a true birth certificate. This birth certificate's number was forged because his number was less than a set of twins that were actually born after him, and since they go in numerical order, this is impossible.
His social security number was one of someone in, I believe it was, Virgina that died in the late 1800's, or early 1900's, I can't remember, but it was fraudulent. He is ineligible to be the president because he acquired citizenship in Indonesia in a year that was far before Indonesia allowed dual citizenship, and this was under the name Berry Sataro, or something of the like; so he had to forfeit his assumed American citizenship to do this.

Here is clear evidence that the Birth Certificate was made public:

http://articles.cnn.com/2011-04-27/politics/o...

"The White House released copies of President Barack Obama's original long-form birth certificate Wednesday, seeking to put an end to persistent rumors that he was not born in the United States.

The certificate states, as Obama's advisers have repeatedly said, that the president was born at Honolulu's Kapiolani Hospital on August 4, 1961. Doubters insist Obama was born overseas -- possibly in his father's home country of Kenya -- and may be constitutionally ineligible to serve as president.

'We do not have time for this kind of silliness,' Obama told reporters at the White House.'I've been puzzled at the degree to which this (story) just kept on going.' "

I now demand that you stop posting this Birther silliness. You have been PROVEN wrong.

yeah, I've read that, and I've seen what they call the long form birth certificate. Perhaps you should look a bit more into that... don't forget to re-read what I've said about the SSN and the long-form numeric tagging...
If people have something blocking their minds thinking that our "government" would lie to us... look into the gulf of tonkin incident. the very act that got us involved in vietnam... look at what our "government" declassified a few years back... then re-evaluate your position on whether what they tell you at face value is correct or not...

Well if you want to fall for it, you go right ahead. But you certainly shouldn't be passing your douche-baggery my way just because you're gullible. You will find out soon enough that I am correct.
