Trigger warning:

This site may, in fact always will contain images and information likely to cause consternation, conniptions, distress, along with moderate to severe bedwetting among statists, wimps, wusses, politicians, lefties, green fascists, and creatures of the state who can't bear the thought of anything that disagrees with their jaded view of the world.

It's never been said here before, but Ariana’s right.

In an unusual twist, Ariana Huffington has offered scathing criticism of the recent ‘killing bin Laden’ Obama ad:

"I agree with the Romney campaign, that using the Osama bin Laden assassination killing the great news that we had a year ago, in order to say basically that Obama did it and Romney may not have done it . . . to turn it into a campaign ad is one of the most despicable things you can do."
Generally finding Australian politics gives me more than adequate reason to be outraged, I have not bothered to view it before and was stunned by the narcissistic politico centric thought behind it:

Bill Clinton has dropped a few notches in my estimation over his statement:
“Nobody can make that decision for you. Look, he knew what would happen. Suppose the navy seals had gone in there and it hadn’t been bin Laden, suppose they had been captured or killed, the downside would have been horrible for him. …”
So, “the downside would have been horrible for him” [the President]. How about for the team involved? These are the politically forgotten men floating out of sight on a sea of presidential hubris. These are the men who laid it all on the line to bring justice to a mass murderer hiding in a phenomenally difficult place to attack.

All that the President risked was a small amount of political capital, which could have been mitigated by time, claims of a courageous decision, or laying the blame on someone else.

The contrast is stark.


  1. And to think, it was just back in 2008 when Seal Team Six was "Dick Cheney's personal assassination team", Gitmo would be closed down Obongo's first day in office, and Bin Laden needed to be captured alive for a "fair trial".

    As the poll numbers continue to drop, perhaps we can expect a "documentary" on how Barack made a solo parachute drop commando mission and fought Bin Laden to the death with knives and fists like a stick man version of Ahnold Schwarzenegger.

    It would seem easy enough to deflate such garbage using Barack's own words against him, but the attention span of the press and the sheeple is far too short for that.

  2. In a post a long way back I referred to him as 'Gung HObama' after one of his 'strong President' speeches and the commando Obama version you mentioned crossed my mind.

    It seems that to Washington types, despite the Seal team having to go across hostile territory, attack a fortified bunker, go in and get the guy only spitting distance from a military base and get back out, the President was the one who displayed all of the courage.

    It is surprising that he hasn't claimed a Medal of Honour.
