Squawk of the day - Oct. 21, 2012

"Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonald’s and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger. It’s the guy cooking the burger, not the clown."

Even though this witty quote has been passed around the internet more than the Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee video, it is still funny.

If you can believe what you hear on the news, and we have now found out on TV, the news channels are not to be believed, Obama was against the raid all around. And yes, he had no real say in the killing, it was the intelligence field. You see how he and his cronies handle things, look at Libya. He dropped the ball on it and now the coverup lies have started. Hillary will be pushed under the bus.

First time I heard this one---HAHAHA. B.O. would take credit for unstopping a toilet if there was something in it for him...never mind the plumber and the plunger.

I like that one! Ironically it's his BS that is stopping up the toilet.

A real life hero Sargent Major Basil Plumley died last week. Holder of a rare tripple Combat Infantryman's Badge and a Gold Star set of Jump Master's Wings plus many other medals. You probably remember him from the film We were Soldiers Once. No mention was made in the Paper of the Media that I can recollect, yet we keep mentioning cheap immitators and userpers of others valor like Obama. Run your Politics, but don't use Obama's name beside SEALs. One of the things his administration did was open the SEALs as targets, hoping to lure out closet Terrorists in the US. It is one thing to place Combat SEALs at risk, totally another to place their families at risk.

Do you only look at Fox News or WALB...never Columbus News or the Columbus Ledger Newspaper's Obits? The retired CSM had burial with full military honors at the Main Post Cemetary at Ft. Benning on October 16th and the actor, Sam Elliot, who played him in the movie you mentioned attended and spoke at the service. My god man, grow up and stop acting like some sniveling schoolboy. Who cares who uses whose name after or before SEALs or any other military group. I spent 40 years in service to my country and am so sick of seeing people gripe all the time about this. We are all in this together and we better stop griping about who did what to whom and who is the biggest name caller or the biggest strutter on some aircraft carrier (another reference I saw someone post earlier). I never saw such a group of adults act like a bunch of children before. Why don't you go back to posting like adults?

Jeez, I only put in eleven and a half. No, I don't watch Columbus News or read the Ledger. Other than that, what in the heck are you rambling about? You learn to smoke some of that weird stuff in Country and haven't given it up? I don't see where I called anyone a name. Plus, I believe there is a certain former Lieutenant with a Silver Star here in Albany that might not have been informed about the Sargent Major's death, but would have wanted to know. As to the Administration setting up the SEALs to lure out domestic terrorists, I don't think that is right. I didn't think it was right when G2 let it slip where certain individuals were working in Nam. Or do you approve of Obama staking out the Families of these SEALs as bait?

He also claims he has Al Quata on the run, the only people on the run are the family members of Seal Team 6. Running for their lives, because Obama was too interested in leaking the information to make himself look like a hero. How many more leaks will it take to expose our military?

I have been silence for a few weeks, but to even mention Obama and Navy Seals in the same article is totally disgusting, The elite of the elite are Navy Seals, just as Green Berets, Rangers Special Opps, Marine Recon and so on, but remove Obama for any statement of these guys. He has placed all of these in danger for four (4) years to attempt to show himself, but if you have been there, you know he is not the one who calls these missions and I certainly hope that November will show just what a failure he really is.

President Obama doesn't yet get it. He has presented no plan at all and instead he goes around bashing Romney with childish gibberish like big bird and binders and romnesia. This is so grade school and it is old. He has been doing this for 4 years now. Mr president, i am sorry but we are sick and tired of this stuff.

  My support has to go to Romney and his 5 point plan.

Obama has given up and is out of ideas. he even said so in the last debate with one statement; " Candy, many of those jobs will never come back "

Mitt ,on the other hand " this is not new normal and we can do better "

I know that I do not speak for all Americans, only myself and I do watch the Columbus channel before the election. I can promise you I will never ever watch any other news channel but Fox again. Obama pays the other networks to print or not print about him and his so called leadership. I have even stopped using Yahoo. Mitt may not win. but that will not change me and a lot of others. Fox has more listeners than all the networks combined. So if you want to listen to that rubbish of lies go ahead! Just do not complain when gas get $10 per gallon because of Obama.

Obama is highly overated. I read where the unemployment numbers have dropped dramatically in battleground states. Yeah, that is a bunch of drama all right. Just so happens at the last month suddenly everything is looking briight. I guess by Nov 1st every single american will be working and the unemployment will be at 0. Then conveniently in January when the unemployment rate rises 1) If Romney wins, they can blame him for it 2) If Obuma wins, they can say tough, Y'all stuck with me 4 more years.

Coach, Unemployment for black people was over 10% for Clinton, 9% for Bush and more than 16% for Obama Now my question to you. Obama's record is the most dismal of all three for the black man and yet you support him. Why is that?

My personal thoughts on Obama and color, is that it was good for him to win to prove that a person of color can do anything- i never doubted that for one instant. Yet his record is proving to me and others that this particular person of color has failed.

It seems to me that you are ignoring reality.

For Da Corch, there is no reality.
