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.
He’s a traitor and worse.
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.
Another reason you just can’t believe the Press.
Agreed, Bill Press is correct. Obama is a killer.
Obama should heed his own words to tyrants.
THE BELL MY TOLL FOR THEE !!!
What threat was Kaddafi?
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.
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.
I’m talking about right now.
So American socialists and communists are OK with military action as long as it’s their guy in the White House that initiates it?
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.
Shoot! What a missed opportunity! Bush himself could have saddamized Saddam live on TV and Press would have cheered him on.
