"Um, What Does Ab Homamum Mean?"

No, you mean "ad hominem."

It means attaching a premise of an argument or debate to a person making the argument.

Like this, Barry Obama is the dumbest fucking President in history, therefore, killing Osama bin Laden was stupid.

I am uncertain if anyone has argued that premise, but I can say that Obama is a lying, no good, sack of lies. His argument has always been that terrorism is a crime, not an act of war, so it should be handled in a courtroom, not a battlefield.

Anyhoo, I do not believe that any United States citizen is arguing that is was wrong to KILL Osama bin Laden, they are simply arguing that it is hypocritical for Barry Obama to say that it was HE that did this because if we have followed his advice four years ago, Guantanamo would have been shut down, there would have been no enhanced interrogation used, and the Pakis would have been told everything about the mission.

Gladly, Obama was probably kept out of the loop as much as the Pakis were. That is why he looks so mad after being dragged off the golf course.

Please take the time to comment.

The best way I know to explain the twilight zone phenomenon of The One managing do something right for once, is to mention a wise old saying: Even a blind sqirrel finds a nut once in a while. He'd have to be some kind of evil genius to continue to fail so astonishingly and so thoroughly.

Worry not, Paul: Barry will manage to screw this up, too.

Skunks, I can't figure out what I am supposed to believe about this to begin with. So far, the story has changed 27 times in just over a week.

Jack, I hate attaching the word "genius" to anything this clown does.

When you've got Navy SEALS to rely on, it's much harder to screw up. And I can't think of any way that Obama could have said no to this mission, and then kept it secret, and then gotten re-elected in 2012. In other words he had no choice but to proceed. He then had no choice but to be successful and then try to take as much of the credit as possible. That's why he didn't Jimmy Carter his way through this - a failure would have been just as bad as doing nothing.

He had no choice but to charge into this and even then he seems to have dithered for far longer than was necessary. Nevertheless, having no choice is how this stopped clock was right at this point in time.

Dean, I am standing by my original thought that he had no clue it was happening. Either Hillary or Panetta gave the green light to this mission and they had to go get Barry off the golf course to be there when it went down. That is why he is pissed in the photo, wearing his golf shirt.

I'm fairly certain, in my own mind, that Obama never gave the order. I simply cannot imagine him having the cojones to do it.

When something goes so far out of the norm, it is hard for me to reconcile it. Barry approving this raid is one of those things. He didn't do it, NO WAY.

This story has been out several days. But, when I read it there was that ring of truth that causes me to believe that it's likely true. http://socyberty.com/issues/white-house-insider-obama-hesitated-panetta-issued-order-to-kill-osama-bin-laden/


I am pretty sure that someone that is at least approaching adulthood (and I am being generous, I know) made the call.

I KNEW IT!!! Barry is such a feckless idiot as President that his Cabinet overrules him. Get gone, Dumbass.

Cousin_Andy said...

I started to post a link to that, but figured everybody had already read it
(or something like it). Oh yeah, I'm sure that even as stupid as most of
them are, they shake their head at Barry's incompetence.

paul_mitchell said...

I had not seen it, but I had the idea that Barry was too much of a twatwaffle to order the hit. Panetta was the first one that came to mind, then Hillary. But, after seeing Hillary in the "War Room," I kinda doubted it was her.

I went ahead and posted a link on my Titanic. It's interesting reading.

all the anti-Obama talk in the world is not going to go anywhere because
THE GUY WHO IS THE TOP DOG IS THE GUY WHO GETS THE CREDIT OR GETS THE  LAME.
Bush top dog and 9/11 happened on his watch. He never got Bin Ladin. Obama did.

paul_mitchell said...

Simply stating the truth is Anti-Obama talk?  Okay.
