Obama’s End Zone Hypocrisy

John McCain (April 29, 2012) — “This is the same president who said, after bin Laden was dead, that we shouldn’t ‘spike the ball’ after the touchdown. And now Barack Obama is not only trying to score political points by invoking Osama bin Laden, he is doing a shameless end-zone dance to help himself get re-elected.” http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/apr/29/obamas-re-election-strategists-resurrect-bin-laden/

The White House marked the first anniversary of the SEAL Team Six raid that killed Osama bin Laden by releasing this campaign ad:

Not surprisingly, the Right has been underwhelmed:

But it seems that even some on the Left are disgusted!

Arianna Huffington (April 30, 2012)

“To turn it [killing bin Laden] into a campaign ad is one of the most despicable things you can do.”


One thing is clear. Barack Obama is no hero. He’s also not being honest about what Romney said. During the last presidential campaign, the Left was pitching the meme that the GWOT was a failure because Bush hadn’t captured or killed Osama bin Laden.  (Of course, if he had, they would have just changed the name to whoever took over from him.)

ABC report Liz Sidoti asked presidential candidate Mitt Romney: “Would the world be safer if bin laden were caught?”

Romney: “Yes, but by a small percentage increase – a very insignificant increase in safety by virtue of replacing bin Laden with someone else. Zarqawi – we celebrated the killing of Zarqawi, but he was quickly replaced. Global Jihad is not an effort that is being populated by a handful or even a football stadium full of people. It is – it involves millions of people and is going to require a far more comprehensive strategy than a targeted approach for bin laden or a few of his associates.”

Sidoti: “Do you fault the administration for not catching him though? I mean, they’ve had quite a few years going after him.”

Romney: “There are many things that have not been done perfectly in any conduct of war. In the Second World War, we paratroopered in our troops further than they were supposed to be from the beaches. We landed in places on the beaches that weren’t anticipated. Do I fault Eisenhower? No, he won. And I’m nowhere near as consumed with bin Laden as I am concerned about global Jihadist efforts.”

ABC and Obama quote only part of Romney’s actual response, making him sound soft on terror. But Romney clearly was and is nothing of the kind.

Dr. Axe talks about juicing

Dearest and I have been trying to follow some of Dr. Axe’s suggestions for switching our diet to real foods without breaking the bank or giving up or changing so much stuff that we feel all deprived and diet-y. We both look and feel SO much better!

Our Marines bought a juicer a while back and were so enthusiastic about how great they feel, we put “Figure out how to buy a juicer” on the trusty Round Tuit list.

Today, I got the video below from Dr. Axe about juicing. It’s got me thinking I need to move that item to the TOP of the list, especially since he says a good quality juicer only costs about half what I was thinking.

Citizen’s Demand to Slash U.S. Funding of the United Nations

Whereas, the United States spends as much as a whopping 2 BILLION TAX DOLLARS in annual dues payments to the United Nations;

Whereas, there are also the “voluntary payments,” which means in total, we paid a whopping $7.7 billion to the UN in fiscal year 2010 — an estimated 27 percent of all UN expenses and more than all of the other permanent members of the Security Council combined;

Whereas, this money is used to provide a platform for nations who despise us and oppose our American values of democracy, justice, free enterprise, privacy and private property rights;

Whereas, our tax dollars are paying for a rag-tag collection of dictators and socialists to propagandize and work against our security and economic interests;

Whereas, the thanks that we get for the generations of Americans who fought in the trenches of France during World War I and stormed the shores of Normandy, as well as died to defend freedom in countless other places around the world is blistering criticism;

Whereas, when we try to isolate the rogue dictatorships that are developing nuclear weapons and other threats to our and the world’s security, we are often met with NO votes and multiple veto threats, while the UN eagerly hosts the likes of Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez, who come to our soil and attack and insult our nation;

Whereas, when the United States rushed to help the injured, starving and dying in the wake of the massive earthquake in Haiti, we were accused by a UN official of trying to “occupy” the nation;

Whereas, the UN is worse than a wasteful, bloated paper tiger — it is a paper tiger intent on biting the hand that feeds it — the United States of America;  

I, therefore, demand that we SLASH the billions of tax dollars we spend on the United Nations!
