There is no bottom of the sewer for that scumbag Ubama and the rats.
I cannot in a million years imagine Reagan or Bush using the military for a sleazy campaign push.

Yes, he’s the only one in the room not wearing a grown-up “I’ve been working all day” shirt. Starts with a jacket and tie, and winds down to just dress shirts after about 12 hours on the job.

Obama: golf shirt under the windbreaker, handed to him to hide his play togs.

Great job for the SEALS. Do not let that last minute decison making SOB take credit. My take on it, is that he realized all pieces were set and he had no other choice. Wouldn’t surprise me to find out he was ordered to make the decision, by circumstances way beyond his control.

What is Hillary's gasp all about...Another Free Republic thread said there was not a feed going to them in that photo.

At least half the people in that room are d-bags. I don't know who the other people are so there could be more.

I think the same thing. Also, I see a laptop in front of everybody at the table except him. Maybe I'm just not seeing it.

Criminy, even Biden has one.

Interesting take. Maybe he was sad one of his Muslim brothers was taken out. Maybe he didn’t know what he was going to tell his Muslim brothers.

Yes, when you add that timing of the “Friday afternoon Panetta green light”, to the “Later that day, he(McRaven) met with a six-member congressional delegation”,
http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/adm-william-mcraven-the-terrorist-hunter-on-whose-shoulders-osama-bin-laden-raid-rested/2011/05/04/AFsEv4rF_print.html
to the Pat Dollard web-site account of events; the time line seems to favor Panetta being the go ahead guy. I’d guess Rush has a separate source and he isn’t going to reference it in favor of letting them speak for their self, if they’d wish to. I’m sure a cub reporter could get to the bottom of it...probably doesn’t matter except if the Romney campaign wished to counter the ad saying he wouldn’t have gave the go-ahead.

May 3, 2011, excerpt from;
http://patdollard.com/2011/05/obama-hesitated-%E2%80%93-panetta-issued-order-to-kill-osama-bin-laden/
“This insulation ended at some point with an abort order that I believe originated from Valerie Jarrett’s office, and was then followed up by President Obama. This abort order was later explained as a delay due to weather conditions, but the actual conditions at that time would have been acceptable for the mission. A storm system had been in the area earlier, but was no longer an issue. Check the data yourself to confirm. Jarrett, having been caught off guard, was now scrambling to determine who had initiated the plan. She was furious, repeating the acronym “CoC” and saying it was not being followed. This is where Bill Daley intervened directly. The particulars of that intervention are not clear to me beyond knowing he did meet with Jarrett in his office and following that meeting, Valerie Jarrett was not seen in the West Wing for some time, and apparently no longer offered up any resistance to the Osama Bin Laden mission. What did follow from there was one or more brief meetings between Bill Daley, Hillary Clinton, a representative from Robert Gates’ office, a representative from Leon Panetta’s office, and a representative from Jim Clapper’s office. I have to assume that these meetings were in essence, detailing the move to proceed with the operation against the Osama Bin Laden compound. I have been told by more than one source that Leon Panetta was directing the operation with both his own CIA operatives, as well as direct contacts with military – both entities were reporting to Panetta only at this point, and not the President of the United States. There was not going to be another delay as had happened 24 hour earlier. The operation was at this time effectively unknown to President Barack Obama or Valerie Jarrett and it remained that way until AFTER it had already been initiated. President Obama was literally pulled from a golf outing and escorted back to the White House to be informed of the mission. Upon his arrival there was a briefing held which included Bill Daley, John Brennan, and a high ranking member of the military. When Obama emerged from the briefing, he was described as looking “very confused and uncertain.” The president was then placed in the situation room where several of the players in this event had already been watching the operation unfold. Another interesting tidbit regarding this is that the Vice President was already “up to speed” on the operation. A source indicated they believe Hillary Clinton had personally made certain the Vice President was made aware of that day’s events before the president was. The now famous photo released shows the particulars of that of that room and its occupants. What that photo does not communicate directly is that the military personnel present in that room during the operation unfolding, deferred to either Hillary Clinton or Robert Gates.”

I already had a hunch...and as I listened today I remembered last week’s guest host - which confirmed my hunch.

I’m not sure why - but I think this is where the footing becomes “unsure” here on FReerepublic....just from what I’ve seen on other threads that mention any insider.

Utterly shameless! Even though FDR was in failing health during his 1944 re-election campaign, he did not even figuratively “spike the football” concerning the D-Day victory, especially with troops still on the battlefield. How low and small for Team Obama!

A person with a moderate amount of perception would be able to glean all of that from the photo.

Biden looks more presidential than BO does.

Spot the Pres & the VP: you’d pick out Biden & Hillary.

BO doesn’t even enter into the picture.

He looks like a little boy someone jammed into a dinner jacket and made sit at the kids’ dinner table in the kitchen.

In that now famous pic of the Situation Room, why was jug ears sitting in a subservient position? Looks like he was nearly sitting on the floor. He should have been sitting where the Air Force general was. That made juggy look more dorkish than he already is. If he had wanted to use that pic in a future political ad, it would have made him look like he was totally in charge. As it was, he punted the ball instead of spiked it, as is being reported by the lsm. He proved he’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

That would be so deserving. I'm sure he was happy that Justice was finally met.

I don't think he would take credit for it, although he deserves it. He would laud all military and civilian efforts that led to the kill.

Then Biden looks pretty comfortable, as he looks like he just pulled up a chair, and Hillary and the fella in front of her have drank their glasses down about 1/4 of the way, so that might indicate they’ve been there a certain time duration, being thought longer if it was hot coffee. Brennan(blue shirt) and Daley(blue tie) are standing as if they’d just arrived recently.

Money quote from Chris Kyle, former SEAL sniper with more than 165 confirmed kills:

‘In years to come there is going to be information that will come out that Obama was not the man who made the call. He can say he did and the people who really know what happened are inside the Pentagon, are in the military and the military isn’t allowed to speak out against the commander- in-chief so his secret is safe.’

Good call, NCC... you're exactly right.

Rush said today that The One was pulled off some golf course so as to be present and accountable in that photo. He was probably rushed in, and just took whatever chair (behind the General calling the shots) that was available. ;-)
