Team Obama says that Romney is a flip flopper. Even if true better a right leaning flip flopper in the White House than a radically left flop flopper.
If I were Mitt Romney I'd be licking my chops at Obama's feeble, thoughtless and unpresidential attempt to use the first anniversary of Bin Ladin's death to put him down by saying he'd be too affraid to have ordered the Bin Laden raid if he were in his place. For Obama has left himself wide open for a whopping Romney counterpunch.
Now as our flopping, failing commander in chief is losing his mojo, confidence and self-esteem I can understand where he would need to give his battered ego a boost by reminding us in the most arrogant and narcissistic way of the brightest moment of his miserable collapsing presidency.
Indeed, all that Romney need do to bloody Obama's face is say that he wouldn't have dithered in indecisiveness for seven months before ordering the Bin Ladin raid; that he would have ordered it before Christmas Day 2010, and not have chanced imperiling the mission by waiting until May of the following year.
Moreover, Romney should point out that if Obama were president in 2001 Bin Ladin would still be alive today because he would not have ordered the EITing or waterboarding of Khalid Sheikh Mohammad-which provided to Rodriguez and the CIA the initial piece of info that set in motion the process that ended this time last year.
NARCISSISTIC MENTAL CASE
In saying that Romney would never have given the order to raid Bin Laden's compound ("the most audacious plan in 500 years") Obama is boasting "Only I and I alone could have killed Bin Laden. It was my destiny and mine alone. If Bush had continued in office Bin Laden would still be alive. If McCain had defeated me Bin Laden would still be alive. If Romney were in my place Bin Laden would still be alive plotting and planning horrific crimes against the United States."
What does this say about Obama? That he's our narcissistic mental case-in-chief.
Postscript I: OUR DEBT TO DONALD TRUMP
Seven months of indecisive dithering preceded Obama's decision to order the raid on Bin Laden's compound, in which time the mission could have been compromised. (Leon and Hillary must have been pulling out their hairs). If Bush, McCain or Romney had been president Bin Laden would have likely been captured or killed before Christmas 2010. Moreover, we can thank Donald Trump for forcing Obama to make up his mind on doing the mission. It's no coincidence that four days before the raid Obama released his birth certificate. Trump's tough talk that Obama was a weakling and embarrassment to the nation was definately a factor in pushing Obama to order the raid-despite the lack of hard evidence that Bin Laden lived in the compound (which is what Obama was waiting for). Romney should exploit this, as should the Donald on his behalf.
THE MEANING OF "FORWARD"
HOPE AND CHANGE
HOAX AND BLAME
FOWARD TO 2013
TO THE FISCAL, FINANCIAL AND ECONOMIC ABYSS
WATERBOARDING IS TORTURE. IT VIOLATES THE GENEVA CONVENTION, INTERNATIONAL LAW, AMERICAN VALUES AND SIMPLE MORALITY
Why then isn't Obama's Justice Department prosecuting Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Rice? Why is Jose Rodriguez a free man tonight going on 60 Minutes and Hannity singing the praises of waterboarding and EITs in saving lives? Why is Obama letting these villains get away with such heinous crimes? Could it be that Obama in secret is also committing these sins against mankind? After all Gitmo is still open violating international law; and like Bush Obama is zapping terrorists left and right in lethal, murderous drone attacks that are killing children and innocents. Is there no justice in the world? Has Obama gone over to the darkside? Has his integrity been compromised? He's a distant relative of Di*k Cheney you know-nine cousins once removed. Could it be he has some Darth Vader in him too? Pray it isn't so.
