Hot Air Gets Desperate / The bin Laden Ad


Oh, man. They are really getting scared/desperate now.

The bin Laden ad is a really good one, one that aims to remind people of the truth, and to neutralize the GOP's (never-legitimate) advantage on foreign policy. And the Hot Air fellows are shrieking and puling about it. It's almost funny--almost--that conservatives have been reduced to trying to convict Obama of trying to frighten voters. Without irrational appeals to fear, contemporary conservatives have virtually nothing in the chamber.

The ad, of course, has nothing to do with fear. Obama said we needed to kill OBL. He was right. He killed him. The last Republican president ignored the threat from OBL, failed to pursue him, and used 9/11 as an excuse to launch an unrelated and disastrous war. The new GOP candidate said quite clearly that it wasn't worth pursuing OBL, and that Obama was reckless for saying that we should strike in Pakistan under certain conditions. The fact of the matter is that it's game, set, and match Obama on this issue.

If the raid had gone badly, R-money and his minions would be filling the airwaves with info about the raid--that you can be sure of.

Do check out that link to the Hot Air piece if you want a little charge--and don't neglect the comments! Those folks over there...they are really, really, really not smart. Ok, come to think of it, it's actually more pathetic than amusing.

Desperate, stupid, and kinda crazy is not a good combination...

Obama wanted to enter into Pakistan and kill Bin Laden, every Republican did not.

Faux News and right-wing blogs wanted George W(orst President in History) Bush to get the credit but failed at the effort, other than converting the kenyan marxist crowd.
