Conservatives Attempting To Take Credit For Death Of Osama Bin Laden Away From President Obama: Is There No Sense Of Decency And Propriety Left?

A new video is coming out which lies about President Obama and the death of Osama Bin Laden, claiming that Obama is taking full credit for apprehending Bin Laden, focusing totally on himself for political reasons, and failing to give full credit to the troops and special forces involved in the operation.

Is there no sense of decency and propriety left? The facts are that Obama did NOT focus on himself when announcing the success of the mission; gave FULL credit to the sacrifices and training and expertise of the special forces and troops; and clearly deserves FULL credit for accomplishing the goal, but of course with the work of the military!

If Obama’s decision to go after Osama Bin Laden had failed, we would never have heard the end of it, and it would have been used to demonstrate that he is weak, ineffective, a failure, much like Jimmy Carter was depicted after the failed rescue mission in Iran in April 1980.

It took guts and courage for President Obama to decide to follow through, and it is a profile in courage of massive amounts!

Strange that we have never had any other President, who was involved in a successful decision making process, facing criticism and being told that he deserves no credit for what he did!

There is no area of Obama’s Presidency that does not have an element of constant attack, even on the most outstanding single event of Obama’s term as President!

One has to wonder IF George W. Bush had accomplished the goal, he would have bragged to the skies about it,and no one would have denied him the credit for the success!

So it comes down to the fact that a person who is African American must be constantly attacked, and denied any credit or respect! Can anyone deny that when conservatives go so low as to deny credit for the most courageous decision of any President since the Cuban Missile Crisis and John F. Kennedy in 1962, fifty years ago?

    If I understood correctly, maybe I got it wrong, but are you comparing giving the order to get OBL, when you now exactly where he is, and where in the event it failed, the only “victim” (besides the brave troops) would be the President, the Obama Administration, with the Cuban Missile Crisis? A situation where if Kennedy got it wrong, not only was his Presidency on the line, but the survival of the whole country? Where literally the lives of hundreds of millions where at stake and faced the stark reality of nuclear evaporation! The consequences of one situation with the other cannot even be compared, not even mentioned in the same sentence I believe. And again, must the left always play the race card, good grief how repetitive!!

    What other reason for attacking Obama on Osama Bin Laden than that conservatives cannot give him “the time of day” on ANYTHING? Obama would have been lambasted had he failed on this mission, and you know that, so give him credit for having accomplished the mission!

    Credit is given,and seriously I have not heard any conservative no give him his day.But some make it seem as if it was a “gutsy” decision..really? I mean who being in his situation, would make a different call. “Mr. President we have Bin Laden in sight , we know where he is, what do we do??” Uhhhh…?. Also some make is seem as if something in the search for OBL change since Obama took office. Nothing changed! It was the work of years that lead to the possibility of finding OBL. You say accomplished the mission, as if he lead it, planned it and worked on it day in and day out, no President does that! Also in his speech it was mainly I did this, and that,and even though he did mention the special forces, it came accross in the end as if he alone was the mastermind of it. Now I know libs love and have a fetish masterminds that can plan every single detail of the life of the everyday, common, ignorant people, who are so stupid and don’t know how to run their lives, but come on! So in the end credit is given for mantaining the same policy put in place by Bush that lead up to finally finding OBL. But as he says, “You didn’t build that, someone else did”…LOL

    Obama’s top advisers were divided about doing what Obama ordered, and even Mitt Romney was not thinking that he would have done it, and even Bush said he did not spend his time thinking about it.

    Obama did NOT constantly say “I”, and if anything, Bush constantly bragged about everything he did in office, including “Mission Accomplished” on the battle ship in 2003!

    And Obama was correct that anything we accomplish is not purely alone, but because of what others have contributed, and he was quoted out of context by Fox News Channel, typical for conservatives to deny him ANY credit for ANYTHING!

    And if the mission to get Bin Laden had failed, you and others would be condemning him as was true with Carter and the Iran hostage issue in 1980!

    I read the transcript of his speech and even compared it to JFK cuban missile crisis speech. The difference is astonishing. Just read them and listen to them objectively, thats all I have to say. If you don’t see the difference, well…. Also I heard all of his speech and don’t understand what you mean by taking out of context. Whatever we accomplish is because of our own personal sacrifice, but that doesn’t mean we don’t live in a society. That’s stupid and nobody believes that. So I really don’t understand Obama’s point. Well I do, but…seriously?

  6. Ronald August 18, 2012 12:29 pm

    If anything, George W. Bush was an egotist, and Obama always makes clear the contributions and sacrifices of others. And we all accomplish but because of the help gained from government, including grants that many forget, small business grants, and other perks from government for business!

  7. Gustavo August 18, 2012 12:50 pm

    Good grief! We would be nothing without government right? Then I am the extremist. I am not against government, just excessive masssive government, and I know people create wealth not government. But for the left , their object of devotion is government, not the individual. I supppose you are a small business owner and thus know who helpful government is…lol

    Another example of Obama’s “I-ness” , inserting himself into the biographical sketches of every single U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge (except, for some reason, Gerald Ford) on the WhiteHouse webpage.
    •On Feb. 22, 1924 Calvin Coolidge became the first president to make a public radio address to the American people. President Coolidge later helped create the Federal Radio Commission, which has now evolved to become the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). President Obama became the first president to hold virtual gatherings and town halls using Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, etc.
    •In a 1946 letter to the National Urban League, President Truman wrote that the government has “an obligation to see that the civil rights of every citizen are fully and equally protected.” He ended racial segregation in civil service and the armed forces in 1948. Today the Obama administration continues to strive toward upholding the civil rights of its citizens, repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, allowing people of all sexual orientations to serve openly in our armed forces.
    •President Lyndon Johnson signed Medicare signed (sic) into law in 1965—providing millions of elderly healthcare stability. President Obama’s historic health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act, strengthens Medicare, offers eligible seniors a range of preventive services with no cost-sharing, and provides discounts on drugs when in the coverage gap known as the “donut hole.”
    •On August 14, 1935, President Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act. Today the Obama administration continues to protect seniors and ensure Social Security will be there for future generations.
    •In a June 28, 1985 speech Reagan called for a fairer tax code, one where a multi-millionaire did not have a lower tax rate than his secretary. Today, President Obama is calling for the same with the Buffett Rule.
    As you can see, the bullet points make clear that while each president has done something historic or notable, Obama is carrying forward every one of those accomplishments since Coolidge. No wonder he always seems so proud of himself. One can make a comeback from defeat, but never from ridicule…

    EVERY President will lay claim to improvements he has brought about, and Obama has done more in so many ways than most former Presidents since the last one to accomplish a lot, LBJ (And also Nixon, ironically).

    I don’t see it as bragging, but rather stating the facts, and being proud of what has been accomplished, which the conservative media and propagandists totally ignore!

  10. Gustavo August 18, 2012 4:28 pm

    You are confused, the issue is not that he is bragging but the lack of class, which is entirely different.

  11. Ronald August 18, 2012 5:41 pm

    I think Obama has plenty of class, while Bush II had NONE!

  12. Gustavo August 18, 2012 6:58 pm

    Always comparing with Bush, who mentioned him???

  13. Ronald August 18, 2012 7:09 pm

    I did, because Obama is so much better than Bush II, it is not even close. He is cleaning up Bush’s messes, but with no help from the GOP, which wants to go back to the mistakes of the past!

  14. Gustavo August 19, 2012 4:19 pm

    It’s not 2008 when Obama ran againts Bush, and I say Bush because he actually never ran againts the incompetent McCain.

  15. Ronald August 19, 2012 4:24 pm

    Actually, as I see it, the two best GOP nominees for President in modern times were Bob Dole and John McCain, far better than Bush II in every way! They both had solid records of achievement, and only when the GOP returns to that moderation, also represented by Gerald Ford, will they be able to carry the nation in the future, with changing demographics that work against them as a right wing ideological party, with a centrist nation!

  16. Gustavo August 19, 2012 4:58 pm

    LOL!!! You are absolutely wonderful! Always confirming my beliefs about the progressives! The two best candidates are the one that lost!!! LOL!!! Of course they were the best, because they always come to an agreement with the liberals to implement liberal policy! That for you is a centrist! LOL. To implement and promote the leftist agenda in your vision means moderation! Thank you, thank you and thank you! Why is it that to reach an agreement it must always be to agree with the left! If this is a centrist nation , then how is it that Republicans for the last 30 yrs have only one with either a true conservative (Reagan) or an establishment Republican that runs on conservative princuiples (Bush father and son), even though they later betray those conservative principles (Bush father raising taxes and GWB growing government)?

  17. Ronald August 19, 2012 5:54 pm

    And Reagan and BUSH II added SEVEN trillion to the national debt! They have caused the mess that Obama now faces, that magically, some people expect him to turn around on a dime! The conservatives have been the downfall of America’s greatness since Reagan became President, but Clinton reversed things a bit with RAISE in taxes on the WEALTHY !

    Obama deserves full credit for his decision on Osama, and we would have heard bragging by W if he had been able to do it, but then he was too lazy to read memorandums in August 2001!

  18. Gustavo August 19, 2012 6:58 pm

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t it Congress who under the Constitution passes the budget, which includes spending and the debt? And which party had contol of Congress under Reagan? I remember Tip O’neill would say “DID ON ARRIVAL” everytime the Reagan administration sent a proposal for a balanced budget. But at least back then Congress, right or wrong, passed a Budget, the same cannot be said of the Democrat controlled Congress up until 2010, and now the Senate refuses to even discuss any budget passed by the Republican controlled House. Way to go!

  19. Gustavo August 19, 2012 7:00 pm

    Oh and by the way, Clinton, and I give him credit, was able to balance the budget because for the first time in decades the House and Senate were both under Republican control. Otherwise it would have been business as usual. And business as usual took us where we are today.

  20. Gustavo August 19, 2012 7:00 pm

    Correction: “DEAD ON ARRIVAL”

  21. Ronald August 19, 2012 7:15 pm

    The Democrats controlled the House and the GOP the Senate from 1981-87, and the Democrats had both houses from 1987-1995.

  22. Gustavo August 19, 2012 7:26 pm

    As I said, the Republicans never controlled Congress, and hadn’t controlled the House for over 40 yrs until 95. And I’m talking about the “me-too” Republicans that took over the party in the 30’s, not conservatives.
