As we once again deal with scumbag Darrell Issa and his Benghazi obsessive compulsive disorder it’s worth taking a look at two anniversaries that are upon us. It was the 11th anniversary of “Mission Accomplished.” You remember when Bush, looking like a total idiot, walked off the aircraft carrier, and went on to tell a nation and the world that the fighting was over in Iraq. That an evil dictator, who had no connection whatsoever to 9/11, was gone and all was fine and dandy. Of course we know that was pure horseshit as thousands of U.S. Soldiers and tens of thousands of civilians were killed since May 1, 2003. To this day there continues to be bombings and killings in Iraq.
This didn’t stop Bush and company from a brazen P.R. move. It was a move that John Kerry, who is now dealing with Darrell Issa’s crap, should have used to his advantage in the Presidential election of 2004, he did not. What Bush did on that day was what a weak President with false confidence does, he beats his chest at nothing. It also showed an administration that was out of touch with reality, that stunt being no better than what the highly entertaining “Baghdad Bob” was doing during the U.S. invasion, pretending it wasn’t happening as tanks rolled by in the background.
That act alone should have been an impeachable offense, as the President once again lied to the American people after lying about the reasons for going into Iraq in the first place. Yes Bush lied and thousands died. No doubt. The shame.
On May 2, 2011, Osama Bin Laden, the person that WAS responsible for 9/11, was killed. While Bush was busy claiming false victories, Bin Laden was free to plan more 9/11 type attacks. For seven years Bush could not get him, finally saying that Bin Laden wasn’t that important anymore. That was his way of admitting defeat. He lost.
It was three years ago that Obama won. He got Bin Laden. It was an important goal of his administration from day one. To get the guy who killed over 3,000 Americans. So he put effort into something that Bush didn’t care about. When it came time for a very risky mission, a mission that would have had a guy like Issa investigating had it gone wrong, Obama showed true courage and readership and he gave the go order. Bin Laden was killed, and because of it the United States is truly safer. This is real, not PR spin.
We didn’t hear from guys like Issa during the Bush administration. We didn’t hear from him when Bush lied us into a needless war, causing the mass killings of U.S. soldiers and Iraqi citizens. We didn’t hear from him when Bush continued the lie 11 years ago. We didn’t hear from him during the eight embassy bombings during Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” era. Now, one terrible incident with four deaths and he won’t shut up. The hypocrisy is too obvious to even state.
I will have more on Issa soon, but I really want to take another moment to celebrate two important anniversaries in U.S. history. One that proves what a loser Bush was. A moment for the history books to show future generations what happens when we elect a weak President who is afraid to go after the real bad guy. And what a devastating effect it can have on a nation.
The other anniversary proves what a winner Obama is. A moment in history that will never be forgotten and will be talked about in history classes throughout time. The day a truly bad man was eliminated.
It’s what happens when the people elect a President with real character, who isn’t afraid to do the real “hard work” that the loser President often just spoke about.
