Time For Some B.S. Repellent!
Why, look who's here! It's your old pal Parky Bill, the Brain Damaged Troll, and he brought his can of Bullshit Repellent with him?
Why did he do that?
Because there's just an awful LOT of Conservative BULLSHIT being spread around in the days since President Obama ordered the strike that killed Osama bin Laden!
Let's take a look, shall we? And don't worry. I have the can!
1. Well, what do you know? Conservatives don't think the president deserves ANY of the credit for Osama's demise!
There's a Facebook blurb going around, a really STINKY one, and it says this...
Let's be clear on this: OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden. An American soldier, who Obama just a few weeks ago was debating on whether or not to PAY, did. Obama just happened to be the one in office when our soldiers finally found OBL and took him out. This is NOT an Obama victory, but an AMERICAN victory!!!
Well, Golly! It's not like anyone expected the President of the United States of America to go over the Pakistan HIMSELF and put two rounds in Osama's eyeball. It was a MILITARY MISSION, planned by military commanders... AT THE DIRECTION OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!!! The President CHOSE the plan, the President AUTHORIZED the plan. The President deserves the credit as Commander-in-Chief for the SUCCESS of the plan!
He sure as shit would have caught the BLAME for it if it had gone belly up or Osama got away or any Americans were killed or injured. Conservatives are STILL barking about Jimmy Carter and how he PERSONALLY whipped up that sandstorm that befouled the helicopter engines leading to the crash of the Iran rescue mission in 1980. Conservatives are STILL beating Clinton for the rocket-propelled grenade that shot down a Blackhawk in Mogadishu.
Oh, and the people who were considering not paying the troops? They had an (R) after their name.
And who here remembers what conservatives were saying about Bush when the troops captured Saddam Hussein?

SADDAM'S LAST VICTIMS [John Derbyshire]
It is now clear that the capture of Saddam struck a major body blow at the Democratic Party. Tina Brown tells the tale here (though with a nasty twist at the end). Capturing Osama bin Laden, always very desirable, is now also an electoral imperative. If _he_ were to show up on our TV screens around the middle of next year with a US Army medic shining a flashlight down his throat, the Democrats would be polling in single digits.Continued on the next page
