Wait a minute but this is the same Romney who said he would respect national borders and not attack Osama in Pakistan without permission from their government.
But that's silly I mean when does Romney ever say what he really thinks or would do? So, now it's, of course, he'd have ordered it given no risk to his presidency for doing it. Don't fret your little head that Republicans might remember what can go wrong and did when Carter tried to rescue the Iranian hostages. This time was different. Everybody knew this one would turn out. I mean what could go wrong?
The hypocrisy of the Republicans should not amaze me but it always does. They cheered when Bush played politics on an aircraft carrier, when he hadn't even won the war he was claiming. That was different. But a black Democrat, him telling the truth of what he did, and suggesting the 'other' guy might have meant what he had earlier said. Oh how despicable.
Ariana should be ashamed of herself for piling on. Maybe she's going back to her original party. I will be looking a lot more critically at Huffington in the future and trusting her views a lot less after her statements on this.
I knew, of course, that there would be as many attacks on Obama from the left as the right. That's how the left likes to operate-- shoot itself in the foot. What Obama said in that ad wasn't even unfair. It was truthful, but the left should play fair while the right doesn't?
Playing politics is so disgusting-- unless, of course, it's right wing SEALs who are doing it and also slamming onto Obama for daring to say he ordered that raid. Interesting how they'd have seen it should there not been that extra helicopter along, should it not have worked out so well? It's not like guarantees were written into this-- except after the fact. Since SEALs aren't supposed to be political, are supposed to back their government, which means their Commander in Chief, we only hear from those who already left the military or speak anonymously. Handy.
Republicans have jumped onto a new complaint against Obama as he runs an ad attacking Romney for using Swiss bank accounts. After all it's legal for Americans to do that. Obama is hitting below the belt. Finagling your tax returns is probably also off limits.
But should someone who is running for the highest office in this country, not be held to a higher standard on where they deposit money and how they get a lower tax rate (revealing what that was for the last 10 years to be sure the tactics have had him paying his fair share all the way)?
Keep in mind, when someone puts their money in a Swiss account, the profits do not go to banks in this country, their money is not used to fund loans here. If you believe in this country, wouldn't you back it also? Shouldn't a president, more than anyone else, believe in this country?
Oh forget that idea-- that's using logic. A big no-no for the emotionally driven Republican party.
If they can just get President Obama to play by rules they never have themselves--
If they can get him to not address their accusation that he's soft on terrorists--
If they can get him to ignore their accusations that he's part of the other--
If they can stop him from holding Romney's feet to the fire
on taxes and business practices--
Obama will then be another Gore and Kerry.
Wise move-- for somebody!
Update: After I wrote that, I read this by -- Andrew Sullivan-- on the freak-out. As usual, he's right on.
