good times

Remember swift-boating? Of course you do, now that the media labels every single attack against a political candidate swift-boating, no matter what it’s about or whether it’s true. But once a upon a time (2004, to be exact), swift-boating meant something. Specifically, it meant lying about John Kerry’s military record and trashing him as a traitor for the very things that made him a decent guy.

Now a group of Republican activists concerned nonpartisan citizens want us to know how dangerous President Obama is to our national security because of that time he had our military hunt down and kill our greatest enemy. Wait, what?

A group of former U.S. intelligence and Special Forces operatives is set to launch a media campaign, including TV ads, that scolds President Barack Obama for taking credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden and argues that high-level leaks are endangering American lives.

Leaks! Credit taking! Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, which is not an official branch of the United States military, has released a 22-minute-long movie laying out the case that President Obama is America’s new greatest enemy by not keeping the fact that he killed the last one a secret.

The evidence against President Obama is in the film is overwhelming. It shows:

  • Obama leaning back dangerously in a chair, contemplating how to leak vital security information and ensure the deaths of American troops.
  • Footage, presumably hidden from the American people until now, of Obama announcing Osama bin Laden’s death to the American people.
  • A woman whose son died in Iraq in 2006, asserting that he was “redeployed to heaven.” It is unclear what this has to do with President Obama, since he would not be president for three more years, but it is very moving.
  • The nonpartisan Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund helpfully explains how offensive it is that President Obama claims to have “directed” the CIA and military to track down and get bin Laden, despite the fact that that is exactly what we elect a president to do.

    To help them make the case against President Obama, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund, a nonpartisan organization, hired a former spokesman for President Bush’s director of national intelligence, where he spent his days explaining why the Bush administration had no idea where Osama bin Laden was or what he was doing.

    With all this nonpartisan, issue-based advocacy, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund is coincidentally helping the election efforts of one Mitt Romney, who said in 2007 that he would not go into Pakistan to get bin Laden as then-candidate Obama said he would (and eventually did), making him the top choice of nonpartisan organizations who apparently wish Osama bin Laden were still alive.

      • All of them, Katie.

      • If only Obama had released the names of covert CIA agents whose spouses had embarrassed him by revealing that the basis of the war of agression he started in the middle east were complete fabrications, these guys would have given him a complete pass, on the security risk front.

        It is a shame that Kathryn Bigelow's movie, Zero Dark Thirty, won't be out until December, because it would be a great reminder to movie goers as to whom is responsible for getting Osama Bin Laden and the work of the Navy Seals.

        "You didn't kill that ".

      • RedneckMuslin

        And if you are America then Obama is too. Hence Obama also killed Osama and THAT"S WHAT HE SAID!

      • finallyhappy

        I thought she did a good job in Ugly Betty and the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants but I really don't think she killed Osama

    • Yeah! Fake shit my dad is going to give me grief about!!! Just what I needed right now.

    • Damn. I know the presidency ages a person quickly but the Reuters article in the link has a picture of the President from 2007 that could be his significantly younger brother.

      Who the fuck would want that job?

    • MissTaken

      Can you imagine how disgusting the 04 W reelection campaign would've been if he stopped clearing brush long enough to kill OBL? The mummified remains would be propped up at every single campaign event and W would finish each speech with "God Bless America, and I killed Osama Bin Laden".

      • SorosBot

        And if anyone criticized Bush for taking too much credit, they would be an America-hating traitor; but it's uncivil and somehow unpatriotic for Obama to ever mention that he actually got bin Laden while campaigning.

      • HogeyeGrex

        Fuck, he'd still be dragging that corpse around like a threadbare stuffed animal.

        Though to be fair, had he actually done anything resembling actually fighting real terrorists rather than invading completely uninvolved countries and tanking the economy, he might not have to hide out and sulk and might have even retained a small measure of relevance. Hell, they might have even given him a spot to speak at the convention this year.

        • miss_grundy

          That thing would be on exhibit at the Presidential Library and every Repub rube would be taking their picture with it.

      • JustPixelz

        Bush would not have sent the SEALs to kill or capture bin Laden. He would have asked our ally Pakistan to arrest him. Or sent 5-6 cruise missiles. He would not have had the balls to take the risks Obama did.

        But Dubya can take credit for all the other dead people under his watch. From the 9/11 attacks ("bin Laden determined to attack in U.S.") to Iraq to Katrina.

    • Wilcoxyz

      Our military would be much safer it Obama had apologized to Osama instead. And if Valerie Plame sent a basket of mini muffins.

        Just image what India has been hiding from us up until now. There is more female beauty on that subcontinent than most of the world combined. It's selfish, is what it is.

    • Ok, I guess I have to explain the GOPbagger mind set to you once again – A black man is not allowed to take credit for anything good except in basketball and sometimes football but mostly basketball because you know… he ain't white.

      • Isyaignert

        Half of Obama is white. When bigots like my fundie "Christian" mom say they'd never vote for a blah man – I just say, well, then vote for the white half of him.

        • Katydid

          Which half is black? Because, what I'm wondering is, you know…oh, hell, never mind.

    • "I do not concur in the words of Barack Obama in a plan to enter an ally of ours… I don't think those kinds of comments help in this effort to draw more friends to our effort," Romney told reporters on the campaign trail. (from 2007)

      If there is video of Romney making that statement the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund will wish they hadn't poked this particular hornet's nest.

      • miss_grundy

        If we had real journalists in the United States, this film would be torn apart using footage of what really went on at the time and these idiots would look like the stupid morons that they are. It's a shame we no longer have Edward R. Murrow, Cronkite, Brinkley or Huntley around, because they would make mincemeat out of these clowns.

        • viennawoods13

          Jon and Stephen do a better job than the rest of them put together.

    • What horrible thing is our usurper president going to take credit for next? Rescuing General Motors and Chrysler, implementing a national healthcare bill that liberals have been trying to pass for almost a hundred years, passing a fair pay bill, getting rid of Muammar Qaddafi — good lord, let's get a rich entitled sissy in office now before the tyranny continues.

      Just sayin'.

      • Blueb4sinrise

        I read somewhere that the Mormon church has posthumously baptized Osama.

    • smitallica

      Yes, because if Bush had actually killed Bin Laden, he wouldn't have worn his beard as a merkin or anything. Probably never would've even mentioned it.

    • rickmaci

      More bile vomited up by the ADCD crowd (Anybody But the Colored Dude). We all should be so grateful to the Supreme Court for it's role in insuring that the first amendment would be used to it's full potential by allowing unlimited amounts of money to be spent for political campaigns putting racist screed on television. Thanks Tony Scalihole.

    • barto

      "where he spent his days explaining why the Bush administration had no idea where Osama bin Laden was or what he was doing"

      See? It was all a very clever and elaborate ruse to hide the fact that they knew exactly where OBL was, down to what porn he was watching at any moment. This is HOW TO AVOID LEAKS, people! How do you think they avoided all those leaks about the WMD, hnmnmmmm????

      • bikerlaureate


        I have no idea who my next employer will be, so there's zero chance of accidentally blabbing their identity here…

    • ahnc

      If Bush took out Osama bin Laden, the celebration from the right would have elevated him above Ronald Reagan.

      • Isyaignert

        'cept GeeDub would never have taken OBL out – the 'cons need a boogie man to get their evil deeds done and they need to keep us skerrrrd. Obama is their boogie man now.

        • ahnc

          I miss the days of Bush's facial injuries.

    • nonbeliever7

      Brilliant! Come November, Mitt's going to win the completely delusional 46% of the vote.

    • MinAgain

      Can it really be considered a leak, if it's announced in a press conference?

    • widestanceromance

      FACT: the party that never shuts up about a strong defense let the worst terrorist attack on American soil happen and did nothing substantive to capture the man responsible for it, and had more people killed in 2 unfunded and botched wars accomplishing nothing. NEVER FORGET.

      FACT: the party the above-mentioned party trashes as weak actually brought the man responsible for it down, with no casualties. NEVER FORGET.

      Now, GOP, ball that up and shove it down your own damn throats. NEVER FORGET HOW BAD THAT TASTES.

    • GeorgiaBurning

      Obama ordered the death of the leader of an armed, faith-based movement that condones murder and wants to radically change a government. That cuts too close to home for some.

    • pinkocommi

      Are these people who criticize Obama for taking credit for the death of Osama bin Ladin the same people who criticize him for saying, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that"?

      Stand back. My head is going to explode.

    • An_Outhouse

      Is this from Will Farrell's new movie?

    • BlueStateLibel

      Yes, by all means, campaign on Obama nailing Osama, that will definitely ensure Mittens gets elected (not enough eye rolls in the Universe for this one).

    • chicken_thief

      *Warning: No Snark*

      I have an issue with organizations using military names like that. Unless everyone of them sumbitches was actually in Special Forces then don't use the name. If they were in SF, why they supporting that draft dodging motherfucker, Mittens? (The only man whose head would have to be scaled down to fit on Rushmore.)

        Sadly, there are more than a few Obama-Haters in the SO Community, past and present. So many of them are recruited from Bug Tussel Alabama and they just don't have any use for the Blah's. You can take a boy out of the country, but……

    • Steverino247

      Snark off

      The toads behind this have absolutely no military leadership training and here's why: "The Commander is responsible for all his men do or fail to do." While not literally beaten into the head of every American military leader in modern times, it might as well be. Patton did not relieve Bastogne, troops under his command did. MacArthur did not liberate Manila, troops under his command did. Jimmy Carter was characterized as weak because the Iranian hostage rescue failed. The failure was his responsibility even though he was not there. Truman didn't nuke Japan twice but he gave the orders to do so and is responsible. W gave the orders for the invasion of Iraq and is responsible for every bit of it. Obama, knowing all of this, gave the orders (note the plural) which ultimately resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. He is responsible and gets the credit. It is the way leadership works. If your order results in success, you get the credit. If your order results in failure, you get the blame. Had the D-Day landings failed, Ike would never have been President. Let us hope real military leaders beat this ad campaign like a red-headed bastard step-child.

    • Given the fact that Bin Laden was set up by the US in the first place you COULD argue that Nobama had a hit on one our own agents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Isyaignert

        "Nobama" – really?

    • HempDogbane

      Obama is being bin Ladened by the bin Laden Boosters for Truth !

    • Steverino247

      By the way, I do not advocate the beating of red-headed bastard step-children.

      Snark on.

    • Chichikovovich

      I remember back in the waning days of the Bush presidency, the talking point out of Republican talking point central was "But you have to admit Bush kept us safe." [Usual context: Fox news blatherers granting that it had become clear that Bush's presidency was a humiliating catastrophe both in fact and in public relations, and so the push to reframe Bush as a Democrat was on. But this one last gasp remained.] I heard that a thousand times if I heard it once. It was the coordinated sound-bite of the month. Apparently "keeping safe" in Fox News language means "only had one act of war on American soil causing 3000 casualties (more or less) occur on his watch, unlike every post-Civil War president before Bush, who had zero."

      Since that was a pretty pathetically low bar even for Fox, I just ignored the constant "Bush kept us safe" patter.

      But I take it back. It actually does look pretty impressive now that I know they meant Bush was actually manning the submarines, actually patrolling the borders, actually involved both flying the choppers for covert actions and leading them himself on the ground.

      • not that Dewey

        I think you misheard. They actually said "Bush got us strafed", which is slightly more accurate.

      • sullivanst

        You know who else kept us safe?

        Safer than the last guy, even…

    • midnighttoker69

      Yeah, Mr. Hussein Nobama … you didn't kill that.

    • CommieLibunatic

      Oh, fuck you guys. There isn't really anything else to say on the matter. Have a graphical emote to go with it, for good measure.

      EDIT: Fuck the army guys, not the Wonkeratti. You guys are great, like my WoW guild but with a lot more buttsex jokes.

    • mavenmaven

      Paul Ryan killed Obama. Or at least he looks like an actor who might play a Navy Seal commando in a movie.

    • TootsStansbury

      I have strained my upfisting finger in these here comments. My upfinger if you will.

    • Haven't you all figured it out yet? Obama killed bin Laden only so he can take over Al Qaeda and use it in his plan to destroy America. It is all clear now!

    • rmjagg

      god knows they milked 9/11 to holy death …

    • ttommyunger

      I'm reserving judgement until I hear from Osama bin Laden; no, wait!

    • LetUsBray

      And if the mission had gone wrong as the mission ordered by Carter to rescue the embassy hostages in Iran did, I'm sure this crowd would never, ever say, "You didn't fail to get bin Laden; America did".

    • Thunderclees

      Leaks are unacceptable, except when they're about Valerie Plame.

    • SigDeFlyinMonky

      Look people, George W. kept the country safe for seven months and 22 days. By my reckoning this means that as of today Obama is over four times as successful as our last oval office resident.

      At the end of all of Romney's campaign ads will follow:

      "Hi I'm Mitt Romney, I'm a white guy and I approve this ad"

    • the comments on the fox nation article… damn.

    • labman57

      Bin Laden was taken out on Obama's watch, and it galls conservatives that they cannot attack the POTUS for being weak against foreign terrorist threats.

      Had this accomplishment been made when Bush was still President, Rove, Sununu, and other right wing blowhards would be singing his praises and hailing him as a genius for his military leadership and clandestine operation decision-making.
