Quote Of The Week

But he made that decision to go without telling Pakistan and that took some real courage, as much courage as our Navy SEALs did in pulling off a near flawless operation.

Wendy Chamberlain, President of Middle East Institute and former US Ambassador to Pakistan on CNN

Lifted shamelessly from I Hate The Media. A great blog, stop by and check them out.

Let's compare here.

The Navy Seals went to a foreign country half-way around the world into hostile territory and rappelled from a hovering helicopter in the pitch dark into a compound that was the residence of the world's most wanted terrorist. These terrorists have automatic weapons, bombs, and like to strap the bombs to themselves and die for their cause. When the helicopter came over the compound they jumped at a moment's notice.

Obama took intel that he only partially developed himself from a foreign intelligence apparatus that was established by the previous president. He deliberated for 16 hours and "slept on it" after knowing for months that it could happen. He then sat in an office surrounded by some of the toughest security forces in the world in one of the world's most secure buildings and watched the raid develop.

Okay, now that I see it written out, it is eerily similar.

I can sum up my opinion on this dumbass quote by this dumbass Wendy, with another fine quote from that fine blog:

//“Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonald’s and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger. It’s the guy cooking the burger that should get the credit, not the clown.”//

Another analogy we can use is one that I think was once used by Alex Karras, who was a offensive linemen for the Lions in the days of smash mouth football. he used to get so mad when the entire game they would be out there in the trenches. Both the DLs and OLs on both squads would be working their tails off to win that game. Every play, every hit, play after play. Getting more tired and banged up as the game wore.

Then, at the end of the game here comes this little FG kicker onto the field in the last seconds, with no mud, no blood, no grass stains on his uniform. He kicks a FG that wins the game and they carry the little shit off of the field, like a hero.

I love the Ronald McDonald analogy...

I'd also like to see Alex Karras start looking real hard and mean at Obummer and watch POTUS soil his britches...

LA, good hamburger analogy

Born again, agreed

Ticker said...

Odummber didn't even kick the field goal or hold the ball. He is more akin to the waterboy who handed the ballholder the rag to wipe his hands on, and that's even stretching it a bit.

I wouldn't equate the two levels of courage, but then I'm not a useful idiot like Wendy Chamberlain who feels the need to
grease the skids for BO.

let me try to post again! (sorry, it won't let me!)

LA, that's a great analogy....

Cube..."grease her PALM", too?

Chuck, I think true courage for poor Obama is standing by COMMON.

Chuck said...

Ticker, great analogy

Cube, anything to get him re-elected

Z, yeah - that was going out on a limb

You have to understand Chuck, he's a liberal, at the best of times liberals can't muster the balls to stand against a small cat, so for him, telling someone else to put their ass on the line especially for a piece of goat-humping sh!t like osama is like taking on a couple of hungry lions with a stone or something.

You know how liberals scoffed at George Bush landing on the aircraft carrier over Iraq, it's partly because they despised him with every fiber of their being, but it's also because none of them have the balls to do the same.

MK, I have always said the one with the biggest balls in the Democratic party is Hillary Clinton
