Sealed With a Smack Upside the Head

Daily Mail:

Serving and former US Navy SEALs have slammed President Barack Obama for taking the credit for killing Osama bin Laden and accused him of using Special Forces operators as ‘ammunition’ for his re-election campaign.

BuzzFeed:

The frustration — or, even anger — within the SEAL community is real, and has been brewing for months, particularly among a politically conservative core of operators.

The Daily Mail story was promoted by Drudge. The BuzzFeed writer suspects a Swiftboating a-comin’. The 2012 General Election has begun.

Must’ve missed when all these TR00 PATR10TS in the “conservative core of operators” whined about President Codpiece and the Mission Accomplished banner.

Mind you, in other countries the term is “potential coup plotters”, but IOKIYAR…

“particularly among a politically conservative core of operators.”

Isn’t that all of them? Spec Ops guys are pretty conservative.

On the other hand, Bush scrubbed the Bin Laden Intel Unit and search for almost 4 years till Barry resurrected it. Without the intel the nerds and analysts gathered, the SEALs would not be able to put lead on target.

So the phoney uberpatriots dog the President for having the balls to order the bin laden assassination mission out of jealousy because w didn’t order the same out of complicity, complacence, or cowardness. Had that mission failed and any seals been captured or killed, Obama would have no chance of re-election. Assuming that political risk made the tactical decision to order the mission even braver. The teapublican’ts are still pissed that they didn’t get to nuke Japan like Truman or Russia like JFK so wisely did not. And missing out on bin laden? Shit, that’s just unacceptable, so they have to demean the accomplishment. The cheering crowds all across America that night sure thought different. This is just more proof that teapublican’t shit talking is much more important than the good of the good ole USA to them. Look at it this way: What if rush limbaugh instead of Edward Murrow or William Shirer had been doing the play by play during world war 2 when FDR was President? Our troops would have probably surrendered en masse due to such poor morale from listening to rush. Tokyo Rush would be more famous than Tokyo Rose in a world scarcely resembling the one we now know.

Well, there’s Pat Buchanan”s “Churchill, Hitler, and the Unnecessary War” where he argues that the world went to hell in a handbasket because the British and French declared war on Hitler–and that’s what made Hitler do bad things.

I doubt we would have even *been* in the war – we nearly weren’t anyways, thanks to exactly the sort of soulless turds that now fund the GOP. See the Business Plot (aka the White House Putsch) for more details.
