Heroes never brag (video)

And presidents don’t take special credit for doing what presidents do – make hard decisions.  But then I guess a small and petty man has to jump up and down, saying “look at me, look at me,” not only because he actually made a right decision, but just because he is so Barney Fife.

Obama reminds me of a very funny episode of Andy Griffith where Barney was singing in a choir.  He could not carry a tune and sounded awful.  So Andy said to him that his microphone was so sensitive, he should sing a real soft.  He kept encouraging him to sing softer and softer until he was not making a sound.  As planned, they had somebody off stage do the singing and Barney was just mouthing.  When Barney heard the beautiful singing coming from his mouth (he thought), he was noticably shocked at how good he sounded, but almost immediately he got all puffed up with pride and took full credit. Here’s a clip from that Andy Griffith show.  Pretty funny.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nKlI5D89xE

The video below illustrating obama spiking the footbasll  is Wow!  I don’t know who put it together but it’s perfect.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsrSAqRrCc0&feature=youtu.be

P. S.:  More “me.”  Talks to the troops, gives shout-out to himself.

Watching brave Navy Seals from the safety of the situation room – Update: staged photo

AP Photo/The White House, Pete Souza

In this image released by the White House and digitally altered by the source to diffuse the paper in front of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with with members of the national security team, receive an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House.

First thing I saw this morning was this photo.  Can you believe this?  I guess Obama thinks he finally got his “Oklahoma City Moment.” Sickening.  Who in the world would be filming this killing?  Did they dispatch a white house filming crew or something?

Why would the white house release such a photo as this if not purely as what they consider to be “good publicity?”  There is no other reason on earth why.  There is a little problem with it though, Obama looks like he’s about 10 years old.  Not a very demanding or commanding presence.

I had noticed the crowd that had gathered, at least what they showed on tv, to celebrate and at the time there was a feeling that something was a little off.  Now I know there is no way that was a spontaneous crowd.  It was all very young people, screaming and pumping fists in unison.  Looked like something out of Egypt or Libya.  And the huge American flags…..no way do these young people have a brand new American flag just hanging around in their apartment.  Many were almost glistening with newness with creases very prominent having just been removed from the packaging.  Who provided the flags?  Where would they get them at 10:30 at night?  So who had organized them?  Probably an Organizing for America or ACORN operation.

I  give all credit and honor to the Navy Seals.  Brave men putting their lives on the line while these punks sit in perfect safety watching it like some porno flick or something.  And then have gall to release it for publication.  Who would even think to have the AP there to take the picture?  Stinks.

And when I add this photo to the statement I heard that Obama had made yesterday, “the country is united as they were after 9/11” there is no doubt in my mind they are thinking of this purely in political terms.  All PR as it relates to Barack Hussein Obama.

The administration is trying to convert its successful killing of Osama bin Laden into domestic political clout, as it faces  a tough summer of deficit-debates, rising gas-prices and and stubborn unemployment numbers.

The political “unity that we felt on 9/11 has frayed a little bit over the years, and I have no illusions about the difficulties of the debates that we’ll have to be engaged in, in the weeks and months to come,” President Barack Obama told a White House dinner for Hill chairmen and chairwomen last night. “It is my fervent hope that we can harness some of that unity and some of that pride [sparked by the bin Laden killing] to confront the many challenges that we still face,” he said at the close of his short speech before the dinner.

Update:  Now I’m hearing the whole thing was staged.  I guess they were staring at a blank screen.  Everything is staged with this bunch.  But I should have known since the photo was an AP photo, so they had to be called in to take it.  I thought that Hillary was the only one who looked horrified at what she was seeing, but now she says it was just allergies.  🙂   And to think these clowns are in charge of the country.  Now that is horrifying.

“I’m just the byline. The real heroes are the Navy, the Seals, those who have brought me home,” Phillips said by phone to Maersk Line Limited President and CEO John Reinhart, the company head told reporters. A photo released by the Navy showed Phillips unharmed and shaking hands with the commanding officer of the USS Bainbridge.
