Here’s Just How “Gutsy” Obimbo Is...

Barack Obama Drafted Memo To Blame Military If Bin Laden Mission Failed. 
According to former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, who appeared on Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ on Friday, Barack Obama drafted a memo to protect himself from blame if the mission to kill or capture Osama Bin Laden would have failed. 
This would have allowed Obama to then place the blame of the failure of the mission on General William H. McRaven. 
Mukasey wrote about this in the Wall Street Journal this week.
 He told Sean Hannity, 
“That was a highly lawyered memo (designed to protect the president politically)… I think there’s going to be more that’s going to be tumbling out about that escapade but so far that memo is enough." 
Michael Mukasey then went on to contrast Barack Obama’s “blame game” with Abraham Lincoln and Dwight Eisenhower. In doing so he contrasted the way Barack Obama calculates to take credit for himself and place blame on others.

When it came to Lincoln and the failures attributed to General George McClellan and Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, Lincoln took the blame stating, “I stand here, as justice requires me to do, to take upon myself what has been charged upon the Secretary of War.” 
Dwight Eisenhower was very similar. In the famous statement penned before the Normandy invasion, in anticipation of failure, Eisenhower wrote, “My decision to attack at this time and place was based upon the best information available. The troops, the air and the Navy did all that bravery and devotion to duty could do. If any blame attaches to the attempt it is mine alone.” 
Once the invasion had been successful, Eisenhower didn’t take credit, but rather gave credit where it was due. “One week ago this morning there was established through your coordinated efforts our first foothold in northwestern Europe. High as was my preinvasion confidence in your courage, skill and effectiveness . . . your accomplishments . . . have exceeded my brightest hopes. I truly congratulate you upon a brilliantly successful beginning. . . . Liberty loving people everywhere would today like to join me in saying to you, I am proud of you.” 
Look how far we have come from the days when a man took responsibility for his decisions instead of blaming others.

I think Mr. Brown meant to say, “Look how far we have REGRESSED from the days when a man took responsibility for his decisions instead of blaming others.”

  1. "Gutsy"? How about "Gutless" + "Worm"!
    Along with Clinton this is the most spineless creature to claim the title of: Commander-in-Chief, in the History of thr Republic! And to think that this ASSHOLE is supposed to represent the 'will of the American people'-what WILL ?

  4. Or just all those who wish to live under obama and obamacare go live under it elsewhere - they can find a country to take them in or conquer and get out of this one.
