Takeover Thursdays – Politicizing Bin Laden’s Death

Since the Obama Campaign released the ad touting President Obama‘s decision to take out Osama Bin Laden; Democrats and Republicans have criticized the ad as politicizing the death of Bin Laden.  Accusing the administration of unfairly using that moment for the  benefit of President Obama re-election bid.
Arianna Huffington called the ad “despicable”
Senator John McCain said Pres Obama should be “ashamed” for politicizing the Bin Laden’s death.
KNOCK IT OFF!!!!
For Republicans to talk about politicizing a moment may I remind them of President George W. Bush and the color coded terror alert system after 9/11… Leading up to the election in 2004 it seemed like the terror alert was being raised to create fear.  At the same time Republicans portrayed Senator John Kerry as being weak on defense and a vote for him was a vote for weakness.  Now that’s a SHAMELESS act, Kerry was a decorated veteran but that didn’t stop Republicans.
Republicans have always looked to portray Democrats as being weak on defense; remember Jimmy Carter and Michael Dukakis???
Who can forget the tank ad against Dukakis…

There is nothing wrong with President Obama reminding the American people that he is more than capable of making the tough decisions.  I hope the campaign stays the course with this ad, credit where credit is due!

We all know without a doubt that if Navy Seal Team 6 had failed to get Bin Laden Republicans and Mitt Romney would be exploiting that in attacks ads every day.

As for Democrats like Arianna Huffington, MAN UP!!!

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!

2012 White House Correspondents Dinner

For those of you who don’t know the White House Correspondents Dinner is a time to poke fun at Washington and everything else going on in the world.  Last year, while President Obama was cracking jokes on Donald Trump… Navy Seal Team 6 was taking out Osama Bin Laden!

President Obama for the most part did a very good job poking fun at himself and others, so did this years Correspondents Dinner deliver?

Obama did have a funny line to start with; when he noted that this year dinner marks the anniversary of  “finally bringing justice to one of the worlds most notorious individuals”.

With that said here is President Obama’s 2012 WH Correspondents speech

Also, here is Jimmy Kimmel hosting the 2012 White Correspondents Dinner:

F-A-Natic Fridays – Another STUPID Herman Cain ad….

Here we go again with another STUPID Herman Cain campaign ad, who the hell is doing the creative thinking for Cain’s campaign ads????

Does Cain review these ads before they are released? If so his judgement is poor and I definitely don’t want him making ANY crucial decisions for the United States.

WHO THE HELL IS NICK SEARCY???

So far Cain has some of the worse campaign ads I have ever seen, and what’s up with the creepy smile Cain gives at the end of his campaign ads?

So what I can gather from this ad is that they are trying to poke fun at President Obama for reading his speeches from a teleprompter and being a community organizer.  After more than 3 years of the Obama presidency this is all Herm and his crew got for Obama?!?!

GTFOH….

I guess killing Osama Bin Ladenal-Awlaki and helping to capture and kill Muammar Gaddafi doesn’t mean anything as well.  Instead Mr Searcy wants us to support the CEO of Godfather Pizza who would flipped-flopped on negotiating with terrorist, doesn’t know what a neoconservative is, and thinks it’s cool not knowing who are the leaders of middle eastern countries.

This guy can’t be serious, he makes Sarah Palin look like a viable candidate.  Come on GOP, you can do better than this!!

Bush, “Truly not concerned about Bin Laden…”

A couple of days ago I wrote about Condoleezza Rice nicely handling herself on Lawrence O’Donnell’s show and how it is vogue right now for Democrats to criticize the Bush Administration for not catching Osama Bin Laden.  I thought it was a bit over the top the way some Dems had looked at the capture and death of Bin Laden as purely an accomplishment for President Obama and failure for former President Bush.

BUT…..

I find it insulting that FOX News thinks they can just re-write history and act as if Bin Laden was always a major focus for them!!

GOP: STOP LYING!!!!! 

On 3/13/2002 then Pres Bush minimized the influence of Bin Laden.  If you are going to applaud Pres Bush for building the foundation of intelligence gathering that ‘MAY’ have assisted the Obama Administration to find Bin Laden… THEN you also have to acknowledge that it was Pres Bush who  re-focused US interest from Afghanistan to Iraq.

In the next couple of days I will talk more about the silliness of FOX News coverage of the capture/killing of Osama Bin Laden!!

President Obama Showing His Range….

At this time I am sure most of you have already seen clips of President Obama going in at the White House Correspondents Dinner.  The president did a great job making fun of himself and also taking shots at his critics; some of the best moments were President Obama taking on Donald Trump.  ‘The Donald’ sat in the audience as a guest of the Washington Post and sat there like a grumpy lump of coal as the president and the audience laughed at his expense.

While all the laughs were going down at the dinner on 4/30 and the president came across as relaxed and at ease in the moment; we had NO IDEA what was about to go down.  We would learn later Sunday night is that on 4/29 the president authorized a surgical operation to take down Osama Bin Laden.  Looking back on the situation the president took a chance of being heavily criticized if that operation failed.

Can you imagine the amount of criticism Obama would have been subject to if that mission would have failed?

Images of the president laughing and cracking  jokes on Trump and other potential Republican candidates for president (Bachmann, Pawlenty, and Romney) would have been all over the TV giving his opponents plenty of material for the 2012 Election.

President Obama showed his range as a leader by delivering great moments during the correspondents dinner and then putting on his Commander-In-Chief hat 24 hours later in telling the nation that

Justice Had Been Served to the  FBI Most Wanted Criminal; Osama Bin Laden!!
