Fallen SEAL’s mother issues devastating rebuke of Obama, says he’s “out of touch”

Gatewaypundit interviewed a fallen Navy SEAL’s mother who gave a devastating rebuke of Obama and his movie about the Bin Laden assassination:

This really should be an ad that a Super PAC pays to put on TV everywhere. I have a feeling there are many more just like this mother.

    A pox on Clinton and a pox on Obama, and a pox on the current leadership of the Democratic party!

    • I feel badly for the SEAL’s mother. My condolences to her and to his family. I salute her son’s service. A big one finger salute to El Presidente and Slick Willie. Prez O will do anything to score political points. The fallen warriors are just statistics for him to use to try to substantiate his failed presidency. I’m not surprised by the woman beater’s and rapist’s comments…we all know how much of a lowlife he is. Both Prez O and Slick Willie have diseased minds.

      • p m

        Well said Chris – this is truly despicable. Those poor parents. I just hope they know that the more this miscreant tries to dishonour our brave military and its allies, the more esteem we hold for them.

    • RobertMahoney

      It would have been horrible for him? You mean being treated like President Bush was for nearly 7 years?

      • canscrap

        I blame the media’s non stop Bushfest….24/7… & now we see a repeat performance from the media which is supposed to be the People’s Watchdog, the 4th arm of government. They have completely abdicated that responibility & SCREWED the American people yet again.

        • very telling that Osama has been dead for months and yet the left wing anti-war protesters are no where to be seen during this election cycle.

    • CalCoolidge

      Actually, they are a pox on us.

    • StrangernFiction

      A pox on Clinton and a pox on Obama, and a pox on the current leadership of the Democratic party!


  • I feel awful because I didn’t even catch that line when I first saw that ad. Also, as a relatively new parent (3.5 month old), I couldn’t possibly imagine what putting your own child in the ground would be like. My heart goes out to these people, political affiliations aside.

    • canscrap

      Congrats on your new baby. From a great grandmother, enjoy every moment you can with them because you’ll never believe how quickly those years fly by.

  • opinionatedhermit

    Only man child mafia gangsters from Chicago, and certified rapists from Arkansas, would ever consider an ad like that made for Obama to be anything close to being either moral or ethical.

    I don’t know about your grandfather’s Democrats. But, these Democrats are pigs. They are absolute, disgusting pigs.

    • CalCoolidge

      I don’t know about that. I think the mindset is typical of the left’s leaders. They only see as “workers” or, in health care, as “units” of cost consumption to be aborted or euthanized – every bit as expendable as a toilet bowl full of waste product.

  • EdHerold

    OH MY!

  • white531

    There are so many ordinary Americans who simply despise this man, myself included. He is like an evil that was visited upon America, when we weren’t paying attention. Well, we’re paying attention now, and we just want to get rid of him. The sooner, the better.

    I would sooner welcome an invasion by foreign enemies, rather than have four more years of this madman.

    • NortonSmitty

      That is the single most disgusting comment I have ever heard from either the left or right of the political spectrum. And you call yourself an American!

      • white531

        Norton, thank you so much! That’s the best compliment I’ve had in over a week!
        At first I thought it was a great honor. I mean, “the single most disgusting comment you have heard from either the left or right of the political spectrum!” I didn’t know I was capable of something like that. Then I looked up your profile and read some of the other statements you have made on various sites. I went from being excited to feeling let down, within the scope of three minutes, no less.

        Norton, I can’t imagine what it must feel like as a Liberal, to be surfing through the political sites and all of a sudden, come across The Right Scoop, one of the best Conservative sites on the web, and realize you’ve never been a part of it. You must have almost peed your pants. Now you’re here, and you’re one of us, for the moment at least.

        So now that you’re here, what’s next? I’m sure you’re just chomping at the bit to have a good ‘ole Liberal argument with someone here. Right? You can start with me if you want. I don’t mind. But I’m sure there are several others here who would just love to have a piece of you, just for fun.

        We get two or three of you a week, sometimes more, sometimes less. But, we’re glad to have whatever we get. You see, it’s the only entertainment we have, except for watching Joe Biden. Joe is really good, I have to admit. It’s just that we get tired of the same old thing.

        By the way, I don’t call myself an American. I don’t have to do that. I simply am an American. Because I was born here of two parents who were also born here. The whole damned family are a bunch of Americans. What are you gonna do? Obama, on the other hand, calls himself an American, when he isn’t, actually. Not in birth, not in nationality, and most import of all, not in mind. He’s a Communist. He wants to reduce The United States to a third world country and help the Muslims take over the world.

        I know it’s hard to talk to me, Norton. Because I just say what I have to say in plain English. I don’t sugarcoat anything. I know, I know, Liberals aren’t used to that. I really have to get better at bridging the gap between us. I’ll start tomorrow. Wait a minute, I’m busy tomorrow. Thursday. Yeah, Thursday. Damn! I forgot. I have a doctor’s appointment on Thursday.

        Look Norton, my schedule appears full at the moment. I’ll get back to you.

        • p m

          Oh, excellent response, white! I’m saving that one. While I’m here, FYI re below, we Canucks like your comments too.

          • white531

            I appreciate that, p m. I really do. The closest friends we have in this life, live in BC.

        • Can you share this with Waskelwee Wabbit on facebook, she will appreciate it a great deal , Also on my facebook page if you would and I will share it as well if you dont mind 🙂 Thanks in advance,

          malcolm, Accordion kid from over the hill 🙂

          • white531

            Malcom, I appreciate your comment, but I do not participate in Facebook or Twitter.
            Thanks, anyway. You are free to copy anything I post.

      • white531

        By the way, I see you’re a veteran. You have nine comments to your name, and six replies. Norton, you’re smokin’. Smokin’ what, I don’t really know.

        You didn’t like my comment. Thought it was rude and hateful? Twenty-seven ordinary Americans liked it. Looking at the response to your comment, I guess we’re still waiting. Don’t want to embarrass you, but it looks like zero at the moment.

        • NortonSmitty

          Whiteboy, you couldn’t embarrass me if you farted in my car, darlin’. And I didn’t think your comment was rude or hateful, just stupid. To say that you would rather have a foreign enemy invade our country than allow the election of a President by the majority of American citizens is the comment of a partisan poltroon, but it’s your site. But the fact you did it in an article ostensibly about one of my fallen brothers in which you whine about his death being exploited. But it’s OK if you do it for your team?

          And it takes a lot to get me to comment. This did it. And for the record, I am no lib. I hate Obama and the Dems as much as you do. But I hate Republicans like you a little more. Because you think you are so Patriotic you can say idiotic things like “I would sooner welcome an invasion by foreign enemies, rather than have four more years of this madman” and think it makes you sound like a tough guy instead of a traitor to his country. And this Vietnam vet couldn’t help but point that out to you.

          So all of you little gnomes can continue to protect this little right-wing garden you got here from anybody that might disagree with your “Patriotic” point of view. But to call for a foreign enemy to invade my country is crossing a line. And is something only somebody who has never fought for it would say.

          • NortonSmitty

            Whiteboy, got nothing to say?

            • white531

              You have trouble reading, don’t you, Nortongirl. Actually, you probably have trouble getting through an ordinary day. Not surprising. I’m joking of course. Honestly, I believe you to be an intelligent person. Misguided, perhaps, but intelligent, nonetheless. I will make no further negative comments in your direction. I consider you an equal among us. I’m not kidding. I really mean that.

          • white531

            Good evening, Norton. Sorry to be so late in responding. Because of this wonderful Obama economy, my wife and I find that we have to put in more hours in our business to make the same amount of money. Thankfully, we can make the adjustment. Sadly, so many others can’t. We get home a little later, but we still get the job done, in spite of this man you seem to think so much of.

            But, I’m glad you’re still here. For the record, I wasn’t trying to embarrass you by my comments. It’s just that I find humor sometimes is a good way to deal with your adversaries, especially those who have a somewhat Liberal slant toward things. You obviously have a different way of dealing with those who don’t exactly align themselves with your view of the world. Name calling is such a weak weapon in anyone’s arsenal. I actually had you pegged as someone a little smarter than that. But then, I’ve been wrong before. As a Conservative, I can admit that, and move on. Liberals, of course, don’t have that option.

            So now, I am Whiteboy, which surely must be a derogatory term, I’ll have to look that one up. It is also possible that I farted in your car, and now you call me darlin’. I now find out, in addition, that my comment was not rude or hateful, but just stupid. I must admit, our relationship is moving along at a rapid pace.

            My comment that I would prefer an enemy invasion, to four more years of Obama, is the one I think that really got you going. Because you think that it denigrated the dignity and respect of The Office of The Presidency of The United States. Nortongirl, I actually could not agree with you more. I think the Office of The President of The United States of America, should be held in the highest regard and enjoy the most respect any of us is capable of. That is why I despise the man you seem to think is just peachy keen.

            Here is why. Because he has done nothing to respect it himself. Since this man was elected, almost from the first day of his Presidency, he has done nothing to show me he respects this country and all the people who died to keep us a free nation. Quite the contrary, actually. He has done everything he can, to destroy our economy, By closing all off coast drilling, he virtually eliminated thousands of jobs, just with his signature. Also eliminated Coal shale exploration.

            He has gone around our system of checks and balances, meaning Congress, by issuing more Executive Orders than any President in History. He doesn’t work within our system of government, he appoints Czars, instead. He bows to foreign dictators and kisses the hand of the Saudi prince. He thinks Hugo Chavez is a great guy.

            He scorns our greatest ally in the Middle East, Prime Minister Netanyahu. He smiles at the camera and says,”We want to work for peace in the Middle East, while privately assuring his Muslim allies in the region, that his view of the future, does not include a country called, Israel. The very word, Israel, chokes in his throat. There is simply no man in History, who has abrogated the responsibility of The Office of President, as much as this man has, and he wasn’t even born here. And you want me to like him and treat him with respect? Norton, I have more respect for the person who drives the truck that picks up my trash. Because at least he gets up in the morning and does his job. Obama can’t lay claim to that one.

            That leads me to another element of this discussion. We knew nothing about him when he ran. He was a Junior Senator, who most people had never heard of. He had no prior administrative experience, except as a Chicago Street Organizer. We knew nothing about him then, and we know nothing about him now, except that he likes to play golf and take lavish vacations, at the expense of the American people. That, and he loves Air Force One. Boy, does he love Air Force One. Almost forgot, He hates this country and what we believe in.

            He lives like some kind of God-King, which I am sure he believes himself to be. He hates being constrained by the checks and balances of our government. Hates Congress. Hates those ignorant Republicans, and most hates that awful document, The Constitution. He hates that one, more than anything.

            Folks, we are two clicks away from becoming a Communist Nation. And this man is going to take us there if we only give him four more years.

            I’m sorry Norton, this man does not deserve the respect that we would normally give the person occupying our White House. Not him, nor his fat wife. He is a Communist Muslim sent here to destroy this country. Right now, I would give him an A+ He’s done an incredible job in the three and a half years he has been there. Our country is almost unrecognizable from what it used to be before he arrived on the scene.

            In our two hundred years plus of Freedom, we have admittedly had some bad Presidents. But because we were a free people, and stronger than our enemies by a factor of ten, we were able to absorb these aberrations in our system and move on. Now unfortunately, we no longer have that luxury. Our enemies are living with us. Sleeping with us. Thanks to this President you seem to love so much, they are in key positions in our government. No small part of them are Muslims, a people who have sworn to the world, that they will eventually kill us all.

            There are a couple of tactics that most Liberal trolls use, whenever they venture onto a Conservative site such as The Right Scoop. First, and foremost, they wildly proclaim they are not Liberal. Understandable. Works for a little while, I guess. The second thing is, they are almost always Veterans. The love that we have for our Military men and women, keeps us from responding.

            Getting back to your original objection to my comment about preferring an enemy invasion, to four more years of this madman, I stand by my original statement. An honest invasion by a foreign enemy, would be easier to deal with, than this insipid attempt by a Communist and his allies in Congress and all the third world piss-ant countries who hate us, who are attempting to take over our country from within, without having to face our resistance as a people, or our guns. The great State of Texas, alone, could withstand an invasion of foreign enemies. Not to mention the rest of the great States that make up this nation. They have done it before, and they would do it again.

            Norton, if you want me to believe you are who you say you are, then stay here with us, long enough for the rest of us to find out.

            My sincere apologies to the Moderators here this evening, K-Bob and KeninMontana. There must be restrictions here on the length of a person’s post. I don’t often do this. I just came home late, after working a long day, and I didn’t like what I saw. I don’t like this man. I want to get rid of him as soon as we can.

            • NortonSmitty

              No, I didn’t like your comment because it was treasonous. And if you meant get rid of me in respect to guarding your little garden here of like minded Gnomes, don’t worry. I won’t come back to wrestle in your mud.

              But if you meant in any other way, good luck with that you ChickenHawk poltroon.

              P.S. Why is it such studly Conservative Bucks like you have to talk in a fantasy world of -God-Kings and extinct enemies like Communists. Go back to your old Dungeons and Dragons days and leave Politics to the men in long pans. America is too imortant for your kind. Buh-Bye.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    hard to watch, so many families, lost their love ones. Its sad our military, veterans deserve respect for the sacrifices they make for our freedom. and yet this admin shows none imo.

  • ConnieConservative

    I am so sorry for the loss of your precious child. I am so sorry for all
    Parents who have lost their precious child in combat.

    This ad is so very insensitive.
    Everything is not all about Pres. Obama. These families have
    made the ultimate, sorrowful, sacrifice. They deserve our gratitude and
    more consideration from Pres. Clinton.

    • buzzkill59

      You are so right Connie!That is the most sickening thing about this clown in the White House!He thinks everything is about him!When you listen to his speeches(if you have the stomach for it) all you here is I,I,I,I!I did this,I did that,but when it comes to responsibility for failure it’s always they!Bush did it,the republican congress did it,the corporations did it,the wealthy did it!The man is pathetic!Absolutely nothing that goes wrong is his fault!He is truly a child,though I know children with more personal responsibility than Obysmal!

      • Cindy09

        There is one strong word that describes his character. It is hubris.

        The definition from Wikipedia is as follows:

        Hubris (play /ˈhjuːbrɪs/), also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one’s own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.

        • MaxineCA

          Excellent word to describe him, but I think we all knew that. I have many other words I could use to describe him, but if in my anger I posted them here, our great moderators would ban me, and I don’t want that. That’s how much disgust (and yes hate) I have for this poor excuse of a human being.

        • p m

          You are too kind, cindy:) Hubris is a useful word, but there is usually a kernel of talent or genius in the person who suffers from it – Alexander the Great, Brutus, Macbeth and others who eventually succumbed to the fatal flaw of believing that they’d achieved perfection. The opposite is the Greek word ‘arete’, a humble striving for perfection, while knowing that its attainment is impossible, which knowledge prevents the development of hubris. The psychopath Zero has no talent, no genius and certainly no humility.

          There are several words that come to mind when describing Zero – Commie Bastard usually do the job for me.

          • Cindy09

            You’re spot on! The great ones you mentioned all “succumbed to the fatal flaw of believing that they’d achieved perfection” (p m). What goes up, always comes down. The natural law behind the verse “Pride goes before a fall” is unbeatable!

        • agas84363

          Hubris=obama……thank you cindy09 so much for the proper word to use…I always thought Ignorant was good enough…….was I wrong

        • menschmeyer

          Yes, Cindy, hubris is the correct description of Obama’s character. And it is terrifying to think of what this arrogant, deluded, power-addicted man might be capable of doing to rescue his hold on the country, should he perceive a threat to it!

      • Extremely well articulated ! As they used to say in the Army RIGHT ON!

  • I have never been more disgusted by anything in my entire life. I hope this is the ad that puts the final nail in obamas coffin. Oh in case you are wondering obama doesn’t even deserve to have his name capitalized.

    • librtifirst

      When you said “obama doesn’t deserve”, I thought that the next thing was going to be “a coffin”. Would direct burial suffice? (politically speaking, of course)

      • p m

        That reminds me, ‘Remember, Remember the 5th of November’ – in the UK it’s Guy Fawkes Day and Bonfire Night on November 5th.

        Guy is the chap who tried to blow up the English Parliament in 1605, and the King with it. He’s burned in effigy at the top of a big pile of wood and scraps, every year, to this day. Fireworks, candied apples, hot toddies and treacle toffee. (Any excuse to indulge!)

        Guess you see where this is going…how about we have our own Bonfire Night on November 6th this year? Think it’s a plan? I have an idea for the perfect effigy candidate.

        • librtifirst

          I like it: “Obama the effigy” burned into political history.

        • sDee

          pm, for some reason when I read this, it occurred to me that this is what we need to to do every Sept 11th. The leftist scourge that has infected America has tried to erase 9/11 from history.

          “all I need to know about islam, I learned on 9/11”

          • p m

            Now that’s a brilliant idea! This year for the election, future Bonfires for remembrance and the truth.

    • sDee

      as with muslims and islam

  • brendawatkins

    Yeah, right. He says that AFTER the fact. Had things not worked in Obama’s favor there probably would be a huge cover-up, and the mainstream media would be all too willing to help. We would’ve never heard a word about it. Who even knows what the real story is.. it changed so many times in the first few days of it happening it had our heads spinning.
    Horrible for him? Why? Because it would make Obama look bad or because his heart would grieve for the fallen seals, and the families left behind? I’m pretty sure most people know the answer to that question, sad as it may be. I don’t envy Obama, but I definitely PITY the man.
    That lady had a way of expressing her pain that made me feel it, and it hurt. Obama don’t want people talking about him, but he refuses to give us anything good to say.

  • Normally I have severe reservations about using grieving families to make a political point, but Obama brought it on himself by taking credit away from the SEALs every chance he gets and that’s disrespectful to the real people who got Bin Laden.
    God bless this family.

    • Wisewoman2

      Don’t forget the Obama minions used a grief stricken man who wife died from cancer to excoriate Romney’s character by implying he caused her death to score political points. They are truly despicable.

  • Boris_Badenoff

    It’s always about Me, Me ,Me , I, I ,I with this guy.. He’s an a$$hole..

    • StrangernFiction

      That’s really not fair. A$$holes don’t deserve to be associated with this cretin Obama, they really don’t.

  • Obama is a soulless creature.

  • BikerHoop

    It’s just a damn shame that these two, Clinton and DuhOne, are so narcissistic that they have to believe their feelings are more important to Americans than the feelings off loss these parents are experiencing. I weep for the parents of lost warriors and laugh in disgust at these two irrelevant wastes of bone and tissue.

  • Bill Clinton has never had any sense of shame, and neither does Obama. They are totally self-centered.

  • agas84363

    obama and clinton………both megalomaniacs ……DISGUSTING SORRY INDIVIDUALS….makes you want to throw up….Even jimmy carter wasn’t this ignorant

  • Army_Pilot1967

    King obama obviously doesn’t have the time or compassion to worry about our fallen warriors and friends, he’s too busy trying to stay in power. Well….he does have time to take claim for eliminating Osama bin Laden and to reveal some Secrets about the operation to get bin Laden. It’s all a matter of perspective to King obama, he knows what’s in the best interest of……..King obama, not so much what’s in the best interest of the US.

  • Joe

    I cannot imagine the pain of any parent losing a child for any reason.

    Eventhough a child passes on as a HERO – The pain is the same

    We all empathize with these parents and pray for all our HEROES and FAMILIES


    Obama and Clinton have again shown their lack of compassion and arrogance

    The MOM is correct – The Liberals are totally out of touch and only care about themselves

    They are really sociopaths and I really mean that

    Hopefully we will take out Country back from these evil – disgusting – souless bastards

  • Jerseygalnny

    God bless this courageous mother of one of our fallen heroes! My prayers are with her and others who have suffered such losses!

  • Sandra123456

    These parents, Karen and Billy Vaughn, were sent a form letter form the President informing them of their son’s death signed with an electric pen. Guess Barry was too busy playing golf and vacationing to sign these letters.


  • 911Infidel

    Klinton and Obama. two clowns cut from the same empty cloth. The downside would be horrible for him? Yeah quiver your lying lips a little more Billy The Lech. How about Foxtrot Oscar. Unlike you who did not join the military because you were scared; the SEALs and many others don’t have your level of cowardice.

    And your boy O’Kenyan gets away with spiking the ball for a mission he didn’t carry out; then has the gall to sign the letters to the fallen’s families with an autopen. You useless, heartless ba$tards. The lake of fire isn’t deep enough for scumbags like Klinton and O’Ba$tard.

    God Bless your warrior son and the two of you for raising up a Spartan.

  • The sad thing is , is that so many people just idolize this President and they cannot see through his transparency. I did not vote for him as I am a South African by heart (but a true Patriotic American) and what I saw happen in my country I could see this happen here in the USA … and when I warned friends they automatically condemned me as a racist. God bless all the American troopers that protect our country……. it is a shame that Obama disrespects our Nation.

    • StrangernFiction

      The sad thing is , is that so many people just idolize this President and they cannot see through his transparency.

      You have to cut them some slack, as a speaker at the RNC said, “no candidate had ever spoken so beautifully.” /s

      • donmoffet

        Whoever said that apparently never heard Ronald Reagan speak.

  • notebene

    My heart breaks for these parents and the parents, siblings, spouses, and children of those who have and are sacrificing for this nation in our military! They deserve our respect and our sympathy because of the ultimate sacrifice they made for their love of this nation. Clinton and the Imposter in Chief have more blood on their hands than Bush ever did! Clinton because he had the opportunity to take out Bin Laden long before 9-11, and Odumbo because he pushed the troops to be more involved in Afganistan and then cut their budget, so that they wouldn’t have the support they needed to do the job, he has no intention of completing properly! I hope this add runs on every media outlet possible because their voices need to be heard! The only thing the democrats are in touch with is greed and power. Their policies are what has endangered our nation in innumerable ways.

  • Don

    Slick Willie, being the trailer park Romeo that he is, exposes his narcisstic lunacy when he said, “If the Seals had been killed or captured, it would have been horrible for Obama.” I guess that was why he let Valerie Jarrett decide when he finally made the decision he is taking all the credit for.

  • bjohnson55

    Liberalism is a mental disease; this is just another data point to prove it. To have Cigar boy Clinton pontificating about how horrible it would be for our vacationing, golfing Marxist in Chief if our warriors and heroes were captured is about as low as a human being can go.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    If your Keynote speaker is a rapist, not once but twice, and is impeached,had woman giving him oral sex in the white house.What does it say about a party (Democrats)?
    “You liberal people Wake up from your trance”

    • hbnolikeee

      Well that’s easy. It tells you how much the Democrats love and respect women and life and the family. What a disgusting bunch of turds. They do need to be flushed.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        I just dont get it, Bill Clinton is adored by all the liberals, if I was the attack dogs on the gop I will start working and going on all the shows in anticipation of his speech and start reminding everybody who Bill Clinton is and that will kill any credibility when he takes the podium to speak.

    • StrangernFiction

      And what does it say about the “opposition party” that while being viciously slandered by the ‘rats they won’t bring this up?

      • proudhispanicconservative

        It is truly sad. When are the establishment republicans realize that to win we have to throw everything we have at these people?. Obama is like a christmas tree to pick from to destroy him.

  • Betsey_Ross

    When I first read the headline I thought, ‘Oh, no, not another out of touch moment’. We all know that ‘out of touch’ doesn’t even begin to explain Barack Hussein Obama as a politician or President. This was before I watched the video.

    She didn’t mean that at all. She meant that he was out of touch as a human being! Is there anything more devastating to be said about a President? Does he even understand what a rebuke it was? It was if God just sent the lightning bolt down upon the Once. And maybe that is what this interview was to convey.

    Blessings on this family in their greif and sadness. I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose a child. My mind just won’t let me go there. Their son was an elite member of the most awesome armed forces in the world. They commit their lives to our Freedom and our Constitution. Their sacrifices are great and sometimes ultimate, yet they commit anyway.

        Not that I noticed. Guess they’re leaving that all up to the Democrats who, I hear , are going to open up their convention with praise to allah and his inbeded useful idiots in the current administration.

    Obama is only and always about Obama. Bill Clinton clearly has no shame, we all know that. My heart goes out to these parents and all the families in America who have made the greatest sacrifice for the security of our nation. God bless them all and give them the peace that passes understanding that only He can give.

    Americans must vote in November to remove this man from our White House because he is determined to destroy this nation, preserving only his wealth and family in the process.

    He is emotionally stunted and is clearly incapable of compassion.

  • NJK

    It enrages me that a govt. allowed a foreigner to act as president of this great nation. And don’t anyone tell me he’s not. He’s not American, he appointed people with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood into the govt. who murdered her son Aaron, and Congress is complicit.

    A question for Rubio, and the other establishment group thinkers in the GOP, Is this the act of a nice man? If you and your wife lose one of your children at the hands of thier own govt. would you think he’s a nice man? Ugh.

    One half of DC are murderous thugs, thieves, and liars, and the others are disposable cowards.

    That was hard just watching her speak, and the pain in the father’s eyes was awful to watch as well.

    It’s all about Obama. That’s obvious. Every decision now is beig postponed until after the election. Russia, Israel, Iran…you name it. Obama is a self-important, self-ingratiating prick at the cost of everyone else.

  • Nomadic100

    Irony of ironies: Clinton, an arch-narcissist walks into the trap of pointing out how horrible it would have been for Obama, another self-absorbed narcissist, if the Seals who killed Bin Laden had, themselves been killed or captured. Clinton identifies only with Obama’s interests. Clinton is oblivious to how horrible that outcome would have been for the Seals and their families. Sick people!

    • That’s because you’re, basically, dealing with the same person, and people, in the Obamas and the Clintons. They’re all 60s “New Left”, anti-American radicals that grew up with the specific purpose of damaging and destroying this country, so they can remake it in their own image. The Army has 7 Core Values:

      Selfless Service
      Personal Courage

      None of these 7 Values are reflected in the creeds of the left, much less the New Left. To the liberal, these are all alien concepts that make as little sense, to them, as the desire to want to be an adult ward of the stated does, to a Conservative. As I recall, they glorified the phrase “if it feels good, do it”. Expecting a man that spent his years committing rapes, snorting cocaine and cheating on his wife to criticize a man that grew up praising communism and hoping for a violent insurrection in America, being a founding member of a dangerous narcotics gang, indoctrinating himself in the methodologies of Saul Alinski and becoming absorbed into racist paganism is a waste of time.

      • Nomadic100

        You posit a sociological commonality but I’m suggesting a psychological similarity. They’re not the same. Also, of note, both Clinton and Obama are only male children with absent, alcoholic fathers. I’m Clinton’s age and grew up protesting Viet Nam, etc., but I never wanted to destroy the country or the culture.

      • I wonder if El Presidente agress with NATO on giving out medals for “courageous restraint”. It seems as if it would be right up his alley.

          “The idea is consistent with our approach,” explained Air Force Lt. Col. Tadd Sholtis.

          Right. ROEs that will get you killed instead of the enemy. Utter madness.

  • Why do we NEVER hear about the ALL those Navy Seals who were shot down on PURPOSE in retaliation for the Bin Laden raid? NEVER? We hear about Obama’s “victory” but what about these guys? This was not an accident! If this had happened under Bush’s watch, we would never hear the end of it. There wasn’t any sort of federal tribute to commemorate them on the one year anniversary of their deaths? I know there were a few local ceremonies, but that is pathetic! They are true American heroes. God bless them. http://abcnews.go.com/International/helicopter-shot-25-navy-seals-dead-crash-afghanistan/story?id=14245387

    • NYGino

      From what I understand nobody will give the identity of the person who ordered all those Seals onto the same helicopter. Navy Seals are a National treasure and there is quite a bit of investment in them to say nothing of their personal investment. Any fool knows you shouldn’t expose 22 Seals at the same time and place. Some day we will know the whole story and it won’t be pretty.

  • Again, I make no secret that I despise WILLARD, and I do so based on his own record of doing much of the same Obama’s doing, right now, but this would make a great commercial.

    Picture declassified footage of Navy SeAL Neil C. Roberts. You can only see it as an infrared silhouette, shot from a Predator-class drone, on Takur Ghar Mountain, Afghanistan, during the legendary Operation Anaconda. He’s fallen out of the back of a helicopter that had come under fire, and alone, he’s literally surrounded by the Taliban. They footage shows flares of gunfire coming from all directions, and he’s frantically trying to return that fire. Then, his head jerks from a direct hit, and he falls flat in the snow. His body starts cooling. And all along, in the background, the voice-over from We Bow to No One.

    “We sacrifice, not because we have to
    we bleed, not because we want to.
    we fight, because we need to.
    And sometimes we die,
    because we love this country.
    I believe in American exceptionalism.
    As a Navy SeAL, I fought, so I would never have to see my president
    bow to anybody.”

    Cut to a class graduating from BUD-S, wearing dress whites, Budweisers being pinned on, and the voiceover saying:

    “We expect to lead and be led. In the absence of orders I will take charge, lead my teammates, and accomplish the mission. I lead by example in all situations…
    We demand discipline. We expect innovation…
    I will never quit… If knocked down, I will get back up, every time…
    My training is never complete.”

    Cut to this story:

    The three service members were shot by a single assailant as they prepared to dine with tribal leaders at an Afghan checkpoint in the Sangin district of Helmand province, said Sangin Gov. Mohammad Sharif, who identified them as Special Forces troops. The assailant, whom several Afghan officials identified as a police officer named Asadullah, then fled the scene.



    I am an American Special Forces Soldier. A professional! I will do all that my nation requires of me. I am a volunteer, knowing well the hazards of my profession.

    I serve with the memory of those who have gone before me: Roger’s Rangers, Francis Marion, Mosby’s Rangers, the first Special Service Forces and the Ranger Battalions of World War II, The Airborne Ranger Companies of Korea. I pledge to uphold the honor and integrity of all I am – in all I do.

    I am a professional Soldier. I will teach and fight wherever my nation requires. I will strive always to excel in every art and artifice of war.

    I know that I will be called upon to perform tasks in isolation, far from familiar faces and voices, with the help and guidance of my God.

    I will keep my mind and body clean, alert and strong, for this is my debt to those who depend upon me.

    I will not fail those with whom I serve. I will not bring shame upon myself or the forces.

    I will maintain myself, my arms, and my equipment in an immaculate state as befits a Special Forces soldier.

    I will never surrender through I be the last. If I am taken, I pray that I may have the strength to spit upon my enemy.

    My goal is to succeed in any mission – and live to succeed again.

    I am a member of my nation’s chosen Soldiery. God grant that I may not be found wanting, that I will not fail in this sacred trust.”

    Cut to story clip:

    Family remembers Army Ranger killed in Afghanistan
    23 year old Hunter Army Airfield Ranger Tanner Higgins was killed in Afghanistan over the weekend.
    His family says he was involved in a gun fight when he was fatally shot.
    “He was an extraordinary kid. I was his older cousin so I got to see him grow up. Being in the military was just something we knew was a perfect fit for him,” Higgins’ cousin Ryan Horne said.
    Higgins is from Texas, but his mother moved to Tybee Island to be closer to her son. He was deployed in March to Afghanistan.
    “He was a great soldier and an awesome son to Patti,” Horne said.
    Higgins’ mother attends Chapel by the Sea on Tybee.


    Cut to footage of US Army Rangers in combat and training:


    Recognizing that I volunteered as a Ranger, fully knowing the hazards of my chosen profession, I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor, and high esprit de corps of the Rangers.

    Acknowledging the fact that a Ranger is a more elite soldier who arrives at the cutting edge of battle by land, sea, or air, I accept the fact that as a Ranger my country expects me to move further, faster and fight harder than any other Soldier.

    Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be, one-hundred-percent and then some.

    Gallantly will I show the world that I am a specially selected and well-trained soldier. My courtesy to superior officers, neatness of dress and care of equipment shall set the example for others to follow.

    Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.

    Readily will I display the intestinal fortitude required to fight on to the Ranger objective and complete the mission though I be the lone survivor.

    Rangers Lead The Way!!!

    Cut to US Marine Corps Force Recon fighting in Afghanistan:


    “Realizing it is my choice and my choice alone to be a Reconnaissance Marine, I accept all challenges involved with this profession. Forever shall I strive to maintain the tremendous reputation of those who went before me.

    Exceeding beyond the limitations set down by others shall be my goal. Sacrificing personal comforts and dedicating myself to the completion of the reconnaissance mission shall be my life. Physical fitness, mental attitude, and high ethics — The title of Recon Marine is my honor.

    Conquering all obstacles, both large and small, I shall never quit. To quit, to surrender, to give up is to fail. To be a Recon Marine is to surpass failure; To overcome, to adapt and to do whatever it takes to complete the mission.

    On the battlefield, as in all areas of life, I shall stand tall above the competition. Through professional pride, integrity, and teamwork, I shall be the example for all Marines to emulate.

    Never shall I forget the principles I accepted to become a Recon Marine. Honor, Perseverance, Spirit and Heart.

    A Recon Marine can speak without saying a word and achieve what others can only imagine.”

    Cut to Obama:

    “I don’t take these folks too seriously. One of their members is a birther who denies I was born here, despite evidence to the contrary…You’ve got another who was a tea party candidate in a recent election…This kind of stuff springs up before election time.”

    Montage pictures of him lounging in the White House, parties, show clips referring to parties with Johnny Depp and Tim Burton in the White House that they’ve suppressed pictures of. Reference the numerous Motown parties. Show him eating ice cream with his kids, during the failed Iranian revolution, just a short time ago. Show him in Martha’s Vineyard, with reports of wine and champagne flowing, and buttered lobster.

    Cut to clip:

    One hundred and sixteen U.S. troops died in Afghanistan between August 30 when Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the U.S. commander in that country, first reported that reinforcements were needed, and today, when President Barack Obama is set to announce that he will send 34,000 additional troops to Afghanistan.

    There were 58 U.S. casualties in Afghanistan in October alone, making that the deadliest month of the eight-year-long U.S. war. There were also 37 U.S. casualties in Afghanistan in September, making September the third deadliest month of the war. In November, the U.S. casualties in Afghanistan dropped to 17.

    On Aug. 30, Gen. McChrystal submitted a 66-page assessment of the war in Afghanistan to Defense Secretary Robert Gates. The assessment said that without additional resources the war would “likely result in failure.”

    Cut to Romney sitting at a desk. Window behind him. Dark outside. Papers strewn all over the desk that look like reports. He looks up and says:

    “The world always has been a dangerous place. In Obama’s short few years, his indecision, poor decisions, self-centeredness and incompetence have made it even more dangerous. Now, on November 6th of this year, its high time you ask yourself: is this leadership? My name is WILLARD Mitt Romney, and I approve this message.”

      I believe that when I die, I will see all of them resting with our Heavenly Father.

      • I just wish WILLARD would put on his aggressive pants, and actually DO these commercials. Unfortunately, I think the chances of that happening are null & void.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    I am so thankful that we have selfless men and women in our military that will if necessary, lay down their lives for our safety, freedom and liberty. That’s an awesome thing if you really think about it…there are people that will die to keep us free. And so many have made that ultimate sacrifice. That speaks volumes for the heroes in our military. God bless them all and please keep them as safe as possible from harm while they are serving our nation.

    • Good comment. It is something the anti-war left don’t understand. The men and women in our military are not drafted…they VOLUNTEER. If they die for our country, they do so with no thought of themselves and their own glory.

  • The Sea Air and Land special warfare unit (SEALS) of the United States Navy is the elite unit of all special ops here in the US, and the world. These silent warriors do a job which most of the time goes unnoticed with little to no acclaim. This they accept this with honor and integrity, unlike our politicians in Washington, and our present white house administration.
    The Acts Of Valor of which they perform on a daily basis throughout the world, and in the worst conditions unimaginable. Proves how these extraordinary men of courage willingly go into harms way to keep the country they love forever free.
    And to the parents of these braves and selfless souls. From a fellow Naval enlisted man myself…I salute you all!. And may God Bless you always.

    • Uh, no. They’re great, but they’re not “The elite unit of ALL special ops here in the us, and the world.” Dick Couch, a Navy SeAL himself, wrote a book called Chosen Soldier, in which he praises the United States Army Special Forces, because, in his words, ‘they can do it all’. You should read the book. ALL the people of USSOCOM (United States Special Operations Command) are great, and some (like the Special Forces) have a higher OpTempo (Operations Tempo) than others, including all NAVSPECWARCOM people, because so much more is expected of them. ALL. That includes not only ARSOC (Army Special Operations Command), but MARSOC (Marine Special Operations Command) and NAVSPECWARCOM. I’ll even include AFSOC (Air Farce Special Operations Command) in that, like my bud from Special Tactics.

  • WI4Walker

    Wow! This needs to be run on TV. This is not only extremely effective, it is so true. I would donate $$ to get this on the airwaves! Wonder how we could go about doing that.

  • My deepest condolences to the family of that Fallen Hero! The comments by other commentators below were very moving and thought provoking. As I read down, I would feel sad and then outraged and then sad again as I read on. It’s a pleasure to be among such caring, compassionate, kind people.

    I just can’t understand how someone upon hearing about the death of a Fallen Warrior would shout something like: “Oh NO! Oh NO! How will this effect *ME*… Will I fall in the polls? Oh the soldier… Send his family a form letter auto signed, I’ve got a golf game to go play!

    That is the kind of thinking I would assume a complete sociopath would have.

  • Carabella1

    Any of you remember Cindy Sheehan and how you vilified her? Stops being funny when it starts being you, doesn’t it?

    • It was never “funny,” except maybe to a few sick cultists on the left who loved using Cindy Sheehan as a prop. They got lots of laughs out of that.

      Anyone remember her son’s name over there on the left? No, they have to google it. Also does anyone on the left know that Casey Sheehan’s father repudiated Cindy Sheehan’s statements? Thought she needed help? That the Dems would use this woman and toss her aside is no surprise at all.

      There’s a clear distinction between someone who was driven mad and became depressed and then lost all her friends and her marriage because she decided “the war was a lie,” (whatever that means), versus grieving parents who are simply angry that, once again, it is all about Obama, worrying about how it would make *him* look.

      • Carabella1

        Thank you. You just described what you people are doing to a T. Hypocritical much?

        • Wow, an “I know you are but what am I” reaction.

          You missed the critical distinction, I see. Why is that, I wonder?

    • LiberalBoycotter

      The woman in this interview is not using this as a protest. She is speaking from the depths of her soul, about an ad, that is using the killing of Osama Bin Laden, politically. What she is saying is Billy, and Barry, has made this war about themselves, not about the real heroes who are really fighting and dying.

      Cindy Sheehan, used her son’s death as a political protest, without regards of her son’s beliefs. Cindy lost everything in life, as she was used by the Democommie machine. They as usual took a person who was in the depths of depression over the lose of her son, and made a TOOL of her for their own political pupose.

      Where is Cindy, now? The Democommies don’t know and they don’t give a damn, she served her purpose so she has been thrown out just like Barry, would do to a botched Aborted Baby who had the audacity to live. So to compare these two women is totally insane….

  • poptoy1949

    The arrogance of Obama is clearly evident and always has been. Now what you are seeing is the arrogance of Clinton, as never before, and the COMPLETE ARROGANCE of the Democrat Party as it should be viewed. It has always been there and the Main Stream Media has helped shield it. The best thing that has come out of the Republican Convention this 2012 is this wonderful MOM saying what the Media cannot touch. NOW let’s get out there and put the Democrat Party where they belong…..back in Chicago.

  • eyewatcher1960

    As a veteran, I say …Bring OUR troops home NOW…Not tomorrow and Not the day after, NOW. Having been in that location, I will add that we will NEVER be able to HELP those nations because their ideas and lifestyles CANNOT be changed. The corruption is too deep!! Those people do NOT want change and we NEED to STOP sending our $$$ and our Blood over there. It just will NOT work. As a mother, I can totally sympathize with these parents and only pray that fewer parents will have to endure their pain!! I Love America and it is Time to bring the troops HOME and rid ourselves of the U.N. They are a useless body of Thieves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      eyewatcher, I don’t know how anyone could follow your post. I know I certainly can’t add anything to it. These wars are nothing but folly. Regarding the Freedom of the United States of America, they don’t amount to a mouse fart. We are spending billions, supporting nations who don’t want us there, while here at home, Mexicans and other Illegals are streaming across our southern borders, unimpeded. It is simply insanity to the ninth degree.

      Neither of them served in the Military.

  • white531

    Only our Military, keeps us from being like every other third rate country on this planet. Once you have a President, such as this one, who has absolutely no respect for the Military, you have a window to view what this country would be like without those who protect us, day and night, regardless of who is President. This man has no respect for the Military, and they have no respect for him. We will see who wins this war.

  • Sorry Scoop but I don’t think anyone’s grief should be used for political ads. I have 2 sons in the military and pray daily God protects them and brings them home. To the parents who have lost children in these wars I am sorry and may God heal you. RIP troops and thank you for defending and giving your all.

    “[If the mission had failed]…the downside would have been horrible FOR HIM [Obama].”
