BARACK OBAMA ANGERS VETS FOR, "SPIKING THE FOOTBALL"
When Navy Seal Team 6 took out Usama bin Laden, Barack Obama stated he would not, "spike the football," using the death of the Al Qaeda leader as a political tool. Yet over the last week in conjunction with the first anniversary of bin Laden's demise that is all that Obama has done, spike, re-spike and then spike the football again and again and Veterans are ticked watching Mr. Arrogance take all the credit and politicize the event for his struggling reelection bid.
In a surprise visit to Afghanistan that just, "happened," to fall on the first anniversary and just, "happened," to coincide with prime TV time in The United States allowing Obama to make a speech to the Nation where he once again spiked the football and took the majority of the credit for getting bin Laden then added insult to injury by stating the he has brought the Taliban under control, he has reversed Afghanistan in three years as if NOTHING happened there before he came on the scene and he has all but eliminated Al Qaeda.
Obama used more, "I's" in referring to getting bin Laden and the battle for Afghanistan and if one did not know any better one would think while listening to his atta boy Obama speech that he has saved the day and only he has fought a war in Afghanistan and gone after Al Qaeda because only he set it as a goal and only he has advanced security forces in Afghanistan. Never mind that we fought successfully in Afghanistan long before Obama was elected and that from day one as a Senator Obama fought every move made in Afghanistan including going after Al Qaeda.
No wonder Vets are ticked. Heroes don't crave recognition but perform their duty with bravery and loyalty to this country that they love and willingly defend and serve. Now the, ( I actually hate to call him this), Commander in Chief is using their sacrifice, heroism and bravery to try and convince Americans to reelect him. I've got news for this this failed President, we the people know who the real heroes are and whose bravery and sacrifice got bin Laden, decimated Al Qaeda, defeated the Taliban and fought honorably in Afghanistan and it is NOT Barack Obama!
