Ex-Navy Seal Crosses the Line

So, there’s a book coming out tomorrow that is an ex-Navy Seal’s account of exactly what happened when we took out Osama bin Laden. Personally, I will not read this book. I figure that this book will be very similar to the extremely successful, famous and distorted book, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Remember, they published basically a pack of lies about John Kerry. This author, in my opinion, is clearly writing a partisan textbook that is designed not to illuminate what happened, but instead to attack the president. Let me make a few predictions – Rush Limbaugh will hail this book as some sort of thoughtful breakthrough. Karl Rove and Newt Gingrich will try to paint this guy as some hero (for writing this book) and somehow degrade or, better yet, denigrate President Obama’s decision to go with the mission.

I found the following comment to be extremely illuminating:

This guy is a bum for using his uniform for political purposes. I served in a rapid deployment force under President Clinton. We had a dislike for him because democrats are “soft on military” and the “Don’t ask Don’t tell” but we never divided our ranks in front of the American People. You can’t do that. Its an unwritten code that you respect rank and that includes The Commander In Chief, despite what your personal feelings are. The uniform must be greater than partisan politics. The American public can not see soldiers as 1/2 are democrats, 1/2 republican. It would destroy morale and what makes our troops the best in the world.

The guy writing this book, releasing it on 9/11 and keeping the profits, while betraying his chain of command is a scum bag. He is also a confirmed “birther”, so that tells you about his intelligence. Just another attempt to “swiftboat” an opponent over politics. Its a shame because America needs to come together to solve big challenges.

Inside voice – Outside voice

We all have thought bubbles. As were talking to people while interacting with them there are things that run through our minds that, thankfully, we filter. For some of us, that filter simply doesn’t work that well. Some things should never be said out loud. The fact that conservatives continue to wonder about shooting our president… It just makes me sick. Never during the eight-year debacle of George W. Bush did I ever wish for anybody to shoot him. Yes, I wanted him out of office. I wanted him voted out of office. There’s a big difference.

From TPM:

In an interview featured Wednesday night on Fox Business, retired hedge fund manager Foster Friess, the largest donor to super PACs that had formerly supported ex-Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) for president, made a distasteful comment about guns being aimed at President Barack Obama.

“There are a lot of things that haven’t been hammered at because Rick and Mitt have been going at each other,” Friess said, according to The Los Angeles Times. “Now that they have trained their barrels on President Obama, I hope his teleprompters are bullet-proof.”

The paper said that he immediately back-tracked on that remark, and later told ABC News that he regretted the statement.

While most Fox Business feature interviews are published to the channel’s website shortly after they’re aired, video of Friess’s comments was nowhere to be found more than 18 hours later, even as fresh clips appeared online from the Fox Business Thursday morning shows.

Friess, who’s spent almost $2 million supporting his favored candidate this election season, said in the wake of Santorum’s concession this week that he would begin supporting former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (R) instead.

What is remarkable is the fact that this man has spent $2 million and, truthfully, that number simply doesn’t phase me. We’ve seen so much money in this campaign already that $2 million is chump change. Newt Gingrich’s billionaire has spent close to $15 million. Now, that’s real money. This is all craziness.
