How far will the Republicans go in their efforts to diminish the president’s accomplishment? They have proven time and again that their sanity is in deficit mode, so it’s hard to tell. From crazy Ann Coulter, to unbalanced Beck, and all of the talking heads at Fox News, the word is out: Obama simply traveled the road already laid by George Bush, or “he didn’t really do anything. It was the Navy Seals that did it.”
The Righties have reason to be nervous, as their election is now seriously in doubt, not that it was likely before this latest triumph.
How far out of their way will Republicans go to deny President Obama any credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden? They’ll throw their dearest values under the bus.Witness, corporate bazillionaire dick David Koch:
“[A]ll that Obama did was say ‘yea’ or ‘nay,’ we’re going to take him out or not,” Koch said, while attending the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Spring Ball on Wednesday evening. He went on:
He just made the decision, it was obvious where the guy is. He was one of the worst terrorists organizing attacks on the United States. I mean, no president in his right mind would not approve that decision to go eliminate him. So he’s getting a lot of recognition and his polls have jumped up, but his decision was the easiest of them all. The real hard work was done by the intelligence and the SEALs.
Isn’t that something?
A billionaire CEO type grouses about all the benefits accruing to the guy who makes the decisions as opposed to the guys who actually get their hands dirty.
Last week that was reason to pay multi-million dollar bonuses, to make sure these “geniuses” didn’t Go Galt. This week, it’s practically an impeachable offense.
