Dude. This is an excellent but brutal ad from Veterans for a Strong America, hitting back hard at Obama for politicizing the killing of Osama Bin Laden to get him reelected:

      HA! As if.

      The useful idiots are being spurred on by him.

  • Linky1

    One word sums up this ad: WOW!

  • conwis

    I love this ad. Another idea for one would emphasize that he and the rest of the admin should have kept their flipping traps shut about mission details, period!

  • I’ve never seen a better ad in my entire life. Period.

  • And the truth shall set you free…of this oppressive regime. I feel sorry for the Secret Service agents assigned to his detail when he’s booted from our White House.

  • Brutal. There’s no “i” in spelling “team”, Mr. Preezy.
    Every high school coach knows and says that.

    • conwis

      No, but there is “me”!

  • jjsmntha

    Great ad! As a mom of military men, I am proud of all that the military accomplish daily without praise or recognition!!! Thank you to all the veterans, past, present & future.

    • MaxineCA

      Please tell them they do get much praise, recognition, and appreciation every day, even if they can’t always hear our voices. They are always in our hearts, and in our prayers to stay strong and safe!

      We have so much respect for our military, I wish they knew that all politics aside, we will stand by them, always!

  • steprock

    Huzzah! Standing ovation!!!!

  • sjmom

    Well Done!

  • Ken Shaffin

    Nobody enlists with the expectation that their commander-in-chief still likes to play with toy soldiers. It’s time Clinton and Obama grew up and learned that. These are real men they toyed with for their own superficial personal gain.

  • sybilll

    Go give Jim Geraghty some love over at NRO: He’s the one that found it, and put it out there. If I could have RT’d this 1000 times, I would have. I know, I know, the Soros goons that are lurking….GWB’s Mission Accomplished moment was spectacular Fail from a PR standpoint, but, he never, ever made it about himself.

  • poljunkie

    I raise my glass and say cheers to the production team of this ad.

    “You got that right! Ya sure got that right. “

  • Obama entertains us with “The Really Icky Shuffle”. Makes you want to puke.

  • NYGino

    I think that Obama has an I phone and an I pad and uses them to Isolate groups with the help of the cIa. He has an I exam once a year loves I scream, takes Ibuprofen for headaches, thinks he’s a Idol and behind the cameras he’s cold as Ice. Ironic isn’t it?

  • NYGino

    Hey O narcissistic One, don’t forget “Cinco de Quatro” is coming up. Better get back here soon so you can do some serious Hispanic a$$ kissing. Sure you could find some heavily Mexican populated swing States so you can appear to be doing the Country’s business and write the whole thing off on the taxpayers. Wouldn’t spend too much time with our troops, other than the handpicked group you stuff behind you on these photo ops the majority are true Americans, a voting bloc you’ll never win over.

    • Go NY! Well said! 😀

      • NYGino

        Hey, ABC, thanks. I’m starting to see black helicopters wherever I go, must be a TRS occupational hazard, you must be noticing them, no?

        • Yeah. I’ve noticed. We have a lot of “unusual”activity around these parts lately. hmmmmm I thought I was getting paranoid. 😉

          • NYGino

            Speaking of “unusual” activity, have you read the Army Corp of Engineers is getting ready to send us another wet present very soon? Both sides of paradise.

            • Yeah. I think they’ve already sent a present our way. Funny, I didn’t realize that releasing stagnant water would clean up algea?

              • NYGino

                South Florida Water Management District….S.F.W.M.D. or does that stand for South Florida’s Weapon of Mass Destruction?

                • Either or. It all depends on what any given day’s agenda is. What an excellent example of an incredibley bloated waste of tax dollars.

  • Truth2Freedom

    you know it’s good when as the ad goes along and you’re thinking “’s ok, it’s pretty good, it hits all the points..” and then the end when the 2 lines come up you say “Oh shit! RIGHT ON!”

    That’s a good fkng ad

  • AustindPowers

    That was a very effective ad. Obama ALWAYS makes everything about him… he’s so egocentric I can’t stand it… he doesn’t speak for America, he only speaks for himself.

  • MaxineCA

    OK folks – I say we all hop over to their website (shown at the end of the ad) and make a donation to help them get our vet’s message out.

    I know all of my favorite candidates are out of the race and I’m certainly not going to contribute to RNC or Romney (he doesn’t need my small contribution). I’d rather donate to this group that might be able to bring the voices of our military to the forefront. Just a thought, if you like this ad.

  • Mike Lee

    Excellent. Bravo.

  • keninil

    I hate to be trite, but maybe Obama ought to look at some Tim Tebow videos to see how to act when one scores!!

    I know Obama has a tough time with the God idea.

  • blackbird

    Obama’s words means nothing to him I am convinced of that, he says things only in the context of the moment for cheap political gain, also he believes that just by saying those things make it so, he is pathetic and what he did in patting himself on the back in regards to this situation is shameful.

  • Arrrggghhh

    Remember when O called Kanye West a “jackass” for taking Taylor Swift’s award a couple of years ago? Who’s the “jackass” now?

  • wodiej

    Yes, good ad and Obama is a narcissist so what else would we expect but for him to shamelessly take credit for something that he had nothing to do with.

  • I, I, I, I, I, I, I, Idiot!

  • GreenBeretWay

    Double Tap Bitch Slap!!

  • CalCoolidge

    Spiking the football and TD dances is something that began after the intergration of the NFL, right? Maybe what Obama does seems classless to many because it’s a black thing and we just don’t understand the mentality, the overwhelming need to strut and say you are the baddest in the hood.

  • edschriber

    I say again, Obama did not kill Osama Bin Laden and it is very likely he gave his approval after the fact when the wheeels had already been set in motion by Leon Panetta.His boasting now was predictable. He is the quintessential political opportunist and will take all the credit for this heroic operation by our Navy Seals , regardless of the fact that he had little to do with it. Ed Schriber,Col. Ret. Usmc, Semper Fi

  • This sums it up perfectly! I am so beyond disgusted by Obama and his minions. Remember when he didn’t even bother to stop to visit the wounded troops when he was in Germany to give his big speech at the Brandenburg gate on his “world apology” tour? The total disrespect and lack of caring exhibited following the Fort Hood massacre. The staged 3 AM photo op with flag covered coffins at Dover. We can go on and on about these low-lifes, and I just hope the Vets can come up with more like this ad. As Sarah keeps saying, our troops deserve a Commander in Chief they can respect.

  • carolt2

    Every sentence this man utters starts with the word “I” is he going to admit that he ruined our economy and chances of recovery? I do not think so.
    This was a great ad, I hope it gets air time on all the stations, but tend to doubt it.

    • kong1967

      “is he going to admit that he ruined our economy and chances of recovery?”

      Those sentences don’t begin with “I”. They begin with “Bush” or “Republicans”. It’s the only time he can bring himself to hold back on his freaking ego.

      • carolt2

        Blame Bush, but give him no credit is another Obama trait that we can’t ignore either.

        • kong1967

          No doubt. One thing that also pi**es me off is how he always compares himself to great conservatives like Reagan and Lincoln. Never a Democrat. Bill Clinton must be offended.

          • carolt2

            I am not thrilled that Romney is our GOP candidate, but we must fire Obama in November. We can’t afford four more years of him. He would hold nothing back because it would be his last election.
            Years from now there will be books written about how this man emerged out of no where and enough people swooned and fainted to elect him to the highest office in the US. We will be laughed at, I didn’t fall for it but so many fools did.
            it makes me feel ill.

            • kong1967

              it makes me ill, too. All the warning signs of a Marxist and the media and the left claimed we were liars…and most of them still don’t see it. If they don’t see it now they have their head so far up Obama’s arse (Matthews) they will never see the light of day.

              I think the choice of Romney may have been a strategic one for a lot of conservatives. That’s the only way I can explain it. I personally know a few Democrats who hate Obama, and nationwide that’s going to translate into a lot of disenfranchised Democrats looking for another alternative. I don’t think we should be moving left to try to pick them up because we lose conservatism, but I still hope we pick up a lot of those votes.

              • carolt2

                The media are fools. They turned left in the late 1960’s or early 1970’s.
                I would have preferred a conservative to Romney, I am afraid too many evangelicals
                Will stay home because they do not like and/or trust Romney. I read that they are 1/4 of the electorate last week.
                Somewhere along the way I found a link for a free subscription to Investor’s Business Daily editorials. In the summer of 2008 they rightly described Obama as a socialist. They are still free; you should sign up for them.

  • ScholarFan

    Come on people!! Any Commander in Chief would have done and said the same thing. The editing of this message is so mean-spirited. No one is citing our President as being the hero here but he did make the move necessary to get the job done. Our Navy Seals and men and women in uniform are our heroes!!

  • ScholarFan

    Come on people!! Any Commander in Chief would have done and said the same thing and I’m sure it would have been OK with you if it were a Repub President. The editing of this message is so mean-spirited. No one is citing our President as a hero but he happened to be the one in charge when the time came to bring Bin Laden down. We all know our heroes are the Navy Seals and the men and women in uniform!!

  • 2yves

    This ad needs to go viral.

  • falling321

    The man has no respect for our military. His rules of engagement have gotten three times as many service members killed in three years than Bush’s did in seven. Evidently he thinks our military is stupid and does not understand who is behind the top down chaos which is causing the loss of moral among our troops!

    • kong1967

      He doesn’t care. 3/4 of our military personel vote Republican, so he doesn’t give a rat’s butt what they think.

  • kong1967

    I’ve had enough of this jackass taking credit for everything he had nothing or little to do with and NOT taking credit for anything he is actually responsible for.

    All I ever hear him say is “I” over and over and over again in his speeches. Hey Obama, shut up already and pack your bags. It’s time to go back to Kenya.

  • jdd2fly

    All wise people know Obama was incapable of making the decision because he and Valeria Jarrett were against the operation as it would offend and affect his relationship with Muslims. It continues to be a false perception surrounding his political re-election and insult for our military.

  • NYGino

    Obama was President when bin Laden was killed.
    Obama was President when the United States had it’s first credit rating drop.

    Do you really want to play this game Zeroman?

  • Guest

    The O is like the Moon, a reflector of the Sun’s light; not as a star that burns from within, thus creating it’s own…

  • BMinPA

    While we are reveling in this ad, I think Jon Stewart’s rendition of what would have happened is not too far off the mark, and pretty funny,

  • Actually, no, this isn’t true.

    The problem is, Republicans are crying, because it didn’t happen on Bush’s watch, and won’t happen on WILLARD’s. The truth is, when I made a major apprehension (like an arrest) and scored a good conviction; when I got to save someone’s life, I spiked that damned ball to the concrete so hard, it exploded, and I couldn’t give a good damn who likes that, and who doesn’t. SeALs tend to be the opposite of the Special Forces; they’re braggarts, for the most part (some aren’t, like a friend of mine who was on one of the teams, but most seem to be). Good for them, I couldn’t care less and think they have reason to brag.

    HOWEVER, Obama has no standing to brag. He piddled around for almost 24 hours, just to make the call to hand the operation over to someone else.

    After that 16 hours, he sat back and made a Navy 3 star (McRaven) the patsy, in case something went wrong, and fingers had to be pointed.

    So, like I said: Obama didn’t do anything WORTHY of spiking a football. That’s like running up to the goal, taking the ball from the guy that actually MADE the touchdown, and taking it upon YOURSELF to spike it. You look real stupid, and probably just got yourself benched.

    • BMinPA

      Now, come on! Does anybody remember how long it took Truman to order the nuke drop or Eisenhower to land in Normandy? I loved how Bush handled 9/11, both Iraq and Afghanistan, but not getting Bin Laden left the whole effort unfinished. You know if Bush had done this we wouldn’t stop bragging.

      • I believe I already addressed that. In fact, I do quite believe that was the first part of my post.

        “The problem is, Republicans are crying, because it didn’t happen on Bush’s watch, and won’t happen on WILLARD’s.”

        The Republicans would take advantage of that, in some quarters, but I SERIOUSLY doubt George W. Bush would attempt to take credit for the SeAL’s work, especially being a Veteran, himself. Obama is no Veteran, being only a career politician and shyster, always with his hand out, looking to collect what he thinks his nation owes him, and his kind. Bush, long ago, could’ve come out and tried claiming that a lot of the credit belongs to him (and it does), but he didn’t. Other members of the GOP have mentioned it, but they haven’t been doing the chest beating and garment rending that the leftists would’ve done, if the situation had been reversed.

    Great ad. The military defends the Constitution, not the government. We defeat all enemies, foriegn AND domestic. Fair warning to the communists and others who are attempting to usurp the Constitution. Your future holds great perils, pain, then demise.

  • B Won

    President Bush did the same on his war on terror and Iraq, so you can say President Obama’s campaign has borrowed a tactic the President Bush campaign utilized against Senator Kerry. Do you (The Right Scoop) feel President Bush was out of line for doing the same? This is not new and not isolated to one politician or party. President Obama did thank the military repeatedly unlike the media and some Republican politicians (Fox News for example) are portraying at the moment. The ad above (like all propaganda on both sides) involve cut up sound bytes and not the entire sound byte. I am about truth and not misdirection the media on both sides is doing. It has gotten even more difficult to sift through opinion and get to facts.

    In my opinion, most politicians are a joke right now. There is really no good candidate or leader. Both parties need a shake down and are more concerned about their party’s self interests than the interests of the American people. Former MA governor Romney will not bring change and President Obama will not either. Both are clowns, and we are stuck with the decision who is lesser of two evils. I really wish we, as Americans, can vote none of the above to let the government know our discontent. I think at one point, and probably right now, there is a higher percentage of Communists than people approving of Congress’ job.

    I am not for either candidate. I am an Independent, as I believe both parties are a joke. I voted for President Obama after initially leaning for Senator McCain only voting for President Obama after I got to know former Alaska governor Palin more (how she is in politics I will not know). Thomas Jefferson believed revolution is sometimes a good thing, as he believed the USA would have gone through multiple revolutions. Maybe we are due for one soon.

    • Look at Bush’s speeches about Iraq. Count the I’s. You will find damn few,

  • bpr1122

    Horrible for Obama? Not horrible for the captured Seals or for the family of the dead Seals?

    Very despicable.

  • Well done!

  • We have a clear choice in this election. UN-inspired tyranny carried out by the EPA, and DOD, or respect for individual liberty. Today even Leon Panetta raised the specter of catastrophic human-caused climate change. This demonstrates the entire federal system is invested in the concept of global government over national sovereignty.

    In Massachusetts v. EPA, the Supreme Court said EPA had the authority (but not the obligation) to regulate CO2 under the Clean Air Act’s “capacious definition of air pollutant.” EPA could do so, the court ruled, if its administrator concluded that GHG emissions “may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare.”

    Not surprisingly, Administrator Lisa Jackson decided that CO2 does endanger public health and welfare, and signaled her intention to regulate these emissions. However, there are serious problems with this.

    First, EPA conducted no original research of its own. Relying on work by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other agencies, it merely selected existing studies and reports that supported its predetermined outcome – and ignored numerous studies that contradicted its decision.

    Second, scientific opinion is sharply divided on the extent to which these gases might contribute to climate change. EPA chose to disregard this inconvenient truth – and continue the shoddy practice begun by the UN IPCC and alarmist climate scientists of refusing to discuss or debate the validity of computer models, assertions of imminent disaster, and evidence for and against the catastrophic AGW hypothesis.

    Third, carbon dioxide simply is not a “pollutant” within the meaning of the Clean Air act. It is not an agent that fouls or contaminates the air, making it harmful to human health. In fact, CO2 is a natural component of Earth’s atmosphere and a key ingredient in photosynthesis. Without carbon dioxide all life on Earth would cease to exist.

    Fourth, both the 2007 Supreme Court decision and the UN IPCC studies relied on by EPA predate the Climategate emails and other scandals that have revealed how contrived, questionable and perhaps even fraudulent global warming disaster “science” actually is. Had those documents surfaced prior to its 2007 deliberations, the Court’s decision might well have been very different.

    Fifth, allowing EPA to impose its CO2/GHG regulatory regime would effectively put federal agencies, especially the EPA, in charge of every aspect of Americans’ energy use, economic activities and lives. EPA’s unprecedented and exorbitantly expensive rules are severely and adversely affecting hydrocarbon use, energy prices, food production, manufacturing, transportation, jobs, home and office heating and cooling, hospital and school operations – and thus human health and welfare.

    Finally, and most absurd of all, even eliminating every source of carbon dioxide in the USA – electricity generation, vehicles, industries, humans and animals – would do nothing to reduce other emission sources worldwide. Thus, despite their devastating impacts on America’s economy and living standards, EPA’s rules will do virtually nothing to forestall the harms that its pseudo-science predicts.
