Obama says he’s practically a killing machine

According to a story by Michael Kelly of the Business Insider, it seems President Obama regards himself as one tough hombre. Reminds me of another liberal progressive president involved in a low- to mid-intensity war — Lyndon B. Johnson.

Of course you might think it’s something the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner wouldn’t want to brag about. But according to the new book Double Down in which journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann chronicle the 2012 presidential election, Obama told his aides he’s “really good at killing people” while discussing drone strikes. Why, he’s simply the definition of bravery and courage. Just as President Johnson personally approved bombing strikes during the Vietnam War, President Obama is also having fun playing “Call of Duty.”

According to the Business Insider:

Obama oversaw the 2009 surge in Afghanistan, 145 Predator drone strikes in NATO’s 2011 Libya operations, the May 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden, and drone strikes that killed the Pakistani Taliban leader and a senior member of the Somali-based militant group al-Shabab this week.

His administration also expanded the drone war: There have been 326 drone strikes in Pakistan, 93 in Yemen, and several in Somalia under Obama — upwards of 4,500 people overall killed — compared to a total of 52 strikes under George Bush.

So now we have it. Not only does President Obama believe he knows what’s best for your healthcare plans, he also doesn’t need those 197 senior military officers he just axed. Why, he can kill people directly from the White House! He’s a one-man wrecking machine — and we’re not even talking about the economy.

The incredible irony here is that a man who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in his first year in office is likely to “go down in history as the president who legitimized and systemized a process by which the United States asserts the right to conduct assassination operations around the world,” according to investigative journalist Jeremy Scahill.

Folks, you just cannot make this stuff up!

Impeach him for what crime exactly?

tammy

How about aiding and abetting the enemy? He is supporting and arming Al Qaida, an known enemy of this country. Treason should do it

Take your blinders off. Even some cnn “reporters” are coming out and waking up. Your that sheep that is stuck in a dream of false hope that has left you blind. You can’t make decisions of your own and are willing to walk off a cliff if your life commander says so.

Lying, aiding the enemy, supplying arms to our enemies, starting wars without Congressional Approval, Murder-Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the false flags of the Boston Bombing (which was staged and not one person was injured) False Flag Sandy Hook…*which never happened, as it was staged also and no children were hurt) how many more would you like?

Impeaching him would pass the House but Harry Reid and the democrats would not pass it in the Senate. It would have about as much power as Clinton’s impeachment, remember he remained in office. Dirty Deeds Harry Reid. What needs to happen first is to remove the Democrats in 2014 and replace with Republicans. Thank you that is all.

Jerry Eugene Lindsey

I wholehearted agree with you Sweetea. Get rid of most of the incumbents, ie: Harry Reid, all the Democrats, and the turn coat Republicans that caved under Obama’s pressure. Then start on the Muslim.

Unfortunately when you live in an ideological world that isn’t necessarily true. The Democrats just overlook all his lies, and continue the mantra.

Thats why we need to turn off CNN, MSLSD and Fox News and start looking for real sources of news, like how none of them talk about the newest executive order (Concerning “Global Warming’) gives Barry power and influence over everyone’s life

This is how self-absorbed he is, Obama is NOT, repeat, NOT good at killing people. He’s good at giving the go ahead for OTHERS to kill people. It’s those who’ve dedicated their careers to hunting down terrorists plotting and scheming against us who are responsible for taking them out. Regardless of how you feel about the surge in troops in Afghanistan or drones, he is as usual, giving himself too much credit.

Are you sure he has white in him? I want to know why the pics of him with his grandparents are photoshopped. Either that or they have some very strange body parts. In one his grandmother has a black arm from mid forearm to hand. The black hand is also larger than her white hand. HUMMM. Then the pic where he is between them on the bench. The grandfathers arm is at a wild angle. He would have to have his elbow joint just below his shoulder. If they are his grandparents, why the photoshooting. They were Communists.

Question Mr West Tell me how many Presidents and Their Administrations, have not been Killing machine? Just remember every time they send troops into Harms way are they not killing people and being a wreaking crew. We know that there will be causalities, we know some will be killed.So back up an rethink before you open your mouth. You stood by an never said a thing about the Bushes, Clinton,Reagan, Cartier, or any other president.Don’t you see the big picture we are reliving or History.

Yes, someone who actually knows what goes on in the realm of politics, rather than forming opinions on our country from those 15 second sound bites he hears on FOX news. I’m a life long republican but will be exercising my efforts and my vote to make sure none of the Republicans’ currently in congress ever hold public office again.

John, Those men you listed, even Pres. Clinton and Carter were not bolsterers like Obama who feels the need to continually use others or put others down to make himself feel important. As for approval from Congress, he goes around Congress. This is a man who puts women on the front line to take the heat for what he has done.. ie Susan Rice, Hillary, Lois Lerner, the other women from IRS and now as much as I dislike her Sibelius, then acts indigent when they get heated questions about HIS deceit ,because they are going after a “woman”.

The question is not how many wars have other Presidents done. The question is how many Presidents have turned the laws against the people of the USA. How many have grown an army within the US borders, using not only gang members but foreign mercenaries. What President has taken so many of our rights away. And what President ever said America is not a Christian nation, but will be a Muslim country by 2016. What American President has ever punished the vets to cause them pain and heartache. Which President ever aided and abetted the enemies of our nation (giving… Read more »

Poor Hattie. She has no concept of what makes a real hero. I’m sure she is taken care of by her Messiah Obama, with our money. I think you are wrong about the assertion that “nobody in FL listens to him”. If it wasn’t for the crooked Democratic Party Gerrymandering his district to make it almost impossible for him to win, he would still be serving us in the House.

NOT True Hattie, this is a man who put his whole career on the line to protect his men from walking into an ambush in Iraq. He was man enough to ask the military in the room to step out, and all he did was fire a gun next to the prisoners head to get him to talk, which he did, the he walks out and tool FULL responsibility for the action.

while i agree in principle that congress hold a lot of the blame in the broad stroke picture ….i do have to argue though that THIS president has take a lot of this in his own hands by using executive orders to bypass congress so frequently that one might think congress is simply an adornment for out fine though crumpling nation!

Would you place blame on Bush if this was linked to him? That would be the most telling answer to what your side in this little play. If this is about party then grow up and decide if you want to be your own man or if you want to be a Shill for a political Party. Mr. West has been in the sand box have you?

I’m a little confused…..”put the blame where it belongs. ON CONGRESS they approve everything.” I thought the big beef was that Congress can’t agree on anything?

Did u really just compare the President of The United States to Hitler…….u need a history lesson, and perhaps buy A BOOK. No one that ignorant could possibly be well read. You Tea Party people scare the hell of me and anyone else with an IQ over 100.

well mr progressive liberal aka commie perhaps if you would read some history books instead of comic books you might see the similarities. But considering your IQ I am probably asking a lot of you. Maybe if we did put it in a Dr Suess book with pictures you might see it. I doubt it but its worth a try.

Well with the qualifier of having an IQ over 100 why would you be scared of Jaybird’s remark? It actually serves as a good example, there are others but they’re all in and around that same class of dictator if not as well known.

How do the progressive Libs deal with this? After all, they consider the GOP warmongers and they the lovers of all things peaceful. I guess now they’ll have to sugar coat what their leader is doing. Interesting to see how they do it. I guess they’ll blame it on Bush.

Notice that Mr. West did not cite the relevant section of the Double Down book to share EXACTLY what President Obama said. We’re supposed to take West’s word for it that Halperin and Heilemann quoted a known, credible source that President Obama said what he is alleged to have said–in context.

The rest of this article is a Gish Gallop of naked assertions.

The thing is, with the way he looked and handled OBL’s operation, it is quite clear to this American that the President has an ego of EPIC proportions. An ego that would be quickly deflated the very first time he actually had to watch someone he personally had shot, die at his feet with a sucking chest wound. What a damned joke of a man. Much less a President.
