Bill Press: On Terror, 'Bush and Cheney Were Weenies... Obama Is The Killer'

Bill Press: On Terror, 'Bush and Cheney Were Weenies... Obama Is The Killer' By Tim Graham Created 10/24/2011 - 5:03pm

Liberal radio hosts were furious on Friday that President Obama can't get more credit for the death of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi. On his show, Bill Press attacked: "Obama could have carried their mother out of a burning building and these Republicans wouldn't give him any credit for it."

Then Press went further: "Let's not kid around here. When it comes to this war on terror, right, Bush and Cheney were weenies. They talked up and they didn't do crap. Obama is the killer."

Thom Hartmann was also urging the media to cover how Obama is the killer:

[Obama] has done these incredible things. He killed bin Laden! He set off the Arab Spring by going to Egypt and saying, 'Tear down these dictators,' and they did! He's ending the war in Iraq. He has fundamentally transformed our health-care system...[He] has done so many very good things...and the media doesn't even acknowledge it. The Democrats aren't doing a good job of messaging it.

Randi Rhodes was especially unhappy that Rush Limbaugh would not give Obama credit:

So Rush Limbaugh used his commentary on the death of Qadhafi as an opportunity to make a fat joke about Michelle Obama's butt? And that tells you just how much the right wing does not want to talk about this! That McCain would give Obama any credit for, uh, the effort that got Qadhafi -- that's why McCain's not President? But Obama is! Okay Rush! The nation rejected a man who would give credit to Obama in favor of -- Obama! Brilliant! Once again Rush, brilliant! Untie the other half of your freaking brain 'cause you need it so bad!

Later, she added that crediting the French and the British is stupid, since they're bigger socialists than Obama:

And the right-wingers are falling all over themselves to credit the British and the French for Qadhafi's death? Listen, if their beef with Obama is that he's a socialist, I have news for them. British and the French? Socialists! They would rather credit socialists than the American president for a job well done, for executing an event that would allowed the Libyan people to fight for their freedom and win.

Does Bill Press have more than 3 or 4 listeners/viewers?

The “Weenies” had a far more moderating effect on the world than the “Killer” who is leading to the radicalization of the mideast that makes mohammad look like a piker.

He’s a killer alright - killer of the American dream. Great feat, obama, killing a republic - the greatest nation on earth - something to be proud of. Communist Scum.

A few months under the new thug regime in Libya, and Obama’s toadies will be blaming Bush for the mess.

Agreed, Bill Press is correct. Obama is a killer.
Obama should heed his own words to tyrants.

A killer is not the same as a warrior.

It takes courage to go into battle - it takes no courage to send others to kill, but conscience.

Bush had that conscience; with his military training he also understood the act of sending men into battle. He and Cheney were reluctant warriors - Obama is a willing killer by proxy.

“Obama could have carried their mother out of a burning building and these Republicans wouldn’t give him any credit for it.”

For this Republican, he’s right. That is because Obama set the building on fire and was only carrying mom out in hopes of getting her vote, to help him destroy the rest of America.

To hell with this traitor..... he deserves to be in prison, at least.

Amazing.

Had Bush presided over the sodomizing and execution of Gaddafi, he would have been recommended for The Hague.

Ask the folks who lost loved ones on Pan-Am 103. Or the families of the brave soldiers killed in Berlin.

Like so many on the American left over the past three years, Press again crawls out from his closed-door meeting with Obama, wipes off his chin and examines his own moral hypocracies. Press is desparate that his fantasies become reality.

Waterboarding 911 mastermind - bad. Bombing, shooting, dragging, beating and sodomizing gadaffi - good. As long as it’s on obama’s watch.

Exactly, so lets see if I get this straight now....

The new Liberal is comfortable with violating Human Rights,(Khadafi)... Assasinations (OBL), Murder of teenagers (Somali Pirate), Muder of American citizens without due process (awlaki) and various forms of vigilante justice.

Why the hell didn’t they tell us?

We spent all that time pouring water up the noses of terrorists when all along we were just supposed to shoot them between the eyes in front of their peers and I am sure that would have got the others talking....

I wonder how long it will take for them to return to their calls of human rights violations when their is a Republican in the White House.... LOL

These Hypocrites know no bounds.... The best thing that Obama has done is he has destroyed any credibility of the Anti-war left.....

I’ll never forget the time a few years back when the idiots at our local talk radio station WMAL actually decided to include Bill Press on the broadcast roster. Fortunately enough listeners complained and he lasted just a couple of weeks.

The liberals now celebrating Obama’s international law be damned, kill-em-all philosophy are the same people who get the vapors when some convicted cop killer gets executed in America after decades of appeals and pro bono loophole-hunting by teams of grad students from the finest law schools in the Ivy League.

I guess that’s what “Bolshevik Logic” means.

And I’m sure that Bill Press and his ilk ranted like madmen during the eight years of the Bush presidency demanding his impeachment, calling him a murderer, etc.

Hypocrites all.

Bush/Cheney would have been crucified by the press for doing what Obama has done. 100%. Their hypocrisy isn't even shocking.

What the demented Left is too blind to acknowledge is Republicans would've been alarmed if Bush ignored the Congress and went right to the UN, if Bush had to be dragged into doing anything on Libya by the French and Brits, if Gaddafi end was being murdered, sodomized and his body left out to rot.

Look at how the Left reacted on Iraq, Saddam's capture, trial and execution. Bush was a "war criminal."

Democrats tend toward hardcore partisanship no matter how hypocritical it reveals them to be. Flawed as Republicans are, they do have some consideration for abstract principles which means they're more apt to abandon their own.

Sheeeeeeyit.

It was Press and his fellow anal-ists along with RAT polluticians who lined up to warn President Bush against "targeting" Osama bin Laden for assassination in accordance with President Ford's executive order.

It was also Press and his buddies who spittled endlessly about how President Bush better not allow drones armed with missiles to violate Pakistani air space.

Begone Press. You're less significant than a pimple on a pimple on a gnat's ass.

Well, if he accepts the premise that 0bama is responsible for the capture and death of Gadhaffi, he must also accept the fact that 0bama is also responsible for his torture, and the sodomizing of Gadhaffi's corpse.

Amazing what a man’s first taste of testosterone will do for the ol’ perspective. One of these days one of Obama’s drones will accidentally off a homo or a whale or something, and the shear cognitive dissonance will explode leftists’ heads.
