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.

I’m a little confused by our president. I guess you could say “he ticked a little toward to center.” No, I’d have to say he ticked all the way to the right. Here’s a man who hated and stopped all enhanced interrogation, promised to close the evil Gitmo, is now investigating or seeking to prosecute attorneys who gave an opinion that enhanced interrogation was consitutional, who wanted with all his heart to bring the terrorist prisoners to New York City for trial, and who wants to advise those captured on the battlefield of their “rights” to an attorney, and be given all constitutional rights when they are not citizens. Of course, none of these things has he actually done.
He turned his back on the sister of one of the victims of 9/11 and said he would not speak up for the halting of the DOJ investigations of those attorneys and also CIA interrogators.
So I’m just wondering how he justifies in his own mind shooting an unarmed man in the head, even if it was Osama, without advising him of his rights and bringing him up for a criminal type trial. I guess Osama was unarmed, it’s hard to know. I think there are now some 20 versions of the event.
I just think it proves that Barack Obama has espoused lots of ideas that just do not work in practice.
I think he was boxed into this, and think about it, what else could he do when presented with the fact Osama had been found.
Now IT IS THE ONLY THING HE HAS TO CLAIM THAT HE HAS DONE.
The little wimp.
