Obama Spiking the Football?

A friend told me a story about legendary college football coach, Joe Paterno. Paterno tell his players, “when you get to the end zone, act like you’ve been there before.” That’s a lesson that Obama should heed.

So with Osama dead, Obama has now embarked on his national, “I killed Osama, re-elect me tour!” The sappy, lefty Hollywood types, who once derided Bush for his knuckle dragging tactics, have been oddly silent as Obama goes coast to coast boasting about how, “he” and “I” and “me” was solely responsible for the death of Osama. I credit Michael Moore for not remaining silent on this issue.  Of course the SEALS did their part, and we can thank them because Joe Biden blew their cover and gave them all the praise they could never want.  However, while Obama is spiking the ball over and over, no one mentions that under Bush 575 soldiers were killed in Afghanistan. Under Obama, 915 soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan ---- Spike the ball again…wait…what? I guess the press will ignore that for the moment because it is not convenient to the re-elect Obama narrative they have set. (Consider the AP's poll showing Obama with a boost in approval ratings to 60 percent. However, if you looked closely, you will notice that the poll has a 17 point slant for Democrats.)  

It’s hard to imagine Obama as a hawkish, God bless America President unless your memory cuts out at about 15 minutes. I could write about for pages about this, but listen for yourself.

I suppose this administration is happy this peach fell into their lap.  This is a close to military service as many of them will ever get. Six months ago the military was a bunch of bigoted homophobes, but now they are superheroes. With the death of Osama, Democrats now get to flex their muscles and talk about their victory in a war they have never supported, fought by men they have disparaged, called war criminals, torturers, and murderers. Obama and friends will now be memorialized in his awkward and staged situation room photo. For aging liberals, this is going to be the new Woodstock and will probably breed a new era of liars… I was there, man!

I would probably be depressed about all this until I read the following in an email, “Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonald's and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger... It's the guy making the burger that should get the credit, not the clown.”


  1. who is John Galt?

  2. Yes, one could stand to learn a lot from JoePa.

  3. I'm curious if Barry can differentiate between the following two:

    (a) All enhanced interrogation methods are hereby off limits to any suspected terrorists, and I want them Mirandaized.

    (b) Put a bullet in his head

    ...because it's the lesser of two evils.

  4. Hey, I will tell you that I can't stand any of the following:

    1) George W. Bush;
    2) Barack Obama;
    3) Militarism.

    So what to you have to say to the millions of people like me who operate outside of your neat little (childish) binary world?

    And, at least I sign my real name.
