Victory lap puts us at risk

  • Follow Letters

The Obama re-election campaign is trying to take advantage of the one-year anniversary of the assassination of Osama bin Laden by U.S. troops under the order of President Obama. While this was a spectacular feat by our Special Forces men, making this feat a campaign issue puts Americans at risk – again!

Those sympathetic to the slain Osama bin Laden have vowed to avenge his death, even more so given the publicity by the Obama campaign to this anniversary. The chances of retaliation by bin Laden sympathizers have increased greatly because of the publicity given the assassination in an attempt to gain votes for Obama and, at the same time, to attempt to discredit Mitt Romney’s “courage” to act the same as the president did.

Americans are now in greater risk of retaliation because of this ploy to gain votes. If the reverse had happened and an American leader had been assassinated and the anniversary celebrated, as we are doing now over bin Laden, we might be more obligated to avenge that event. Should we feel that retaliation by bin Laden followers is now less likely with all the in-your-face boasting we are now getting from the Obama campaigners over the anniversary?

We pray that there will be no incidents over this latest vote-getting ploy, and no new 9-11-type anniversary to commemorate next year and yet another retaliation by President Obama. Either way, it’s a win-win for Obama’s campaign at America’s expense!

Politics gone Wrong. The dead

Politics gone Wrong. The dead terrorist should remain dead. Putting his name back in the news only empower his followers.

flight suit, mission

flight suit, mission accomplished banner... NO and I mean NO anti american terrorists in Iraq (9/11 related). Talk about putting American blood and treasure at risk... where was the outrage ? where were those who think 'NOW' is the time to address the issue of our President using the troops for political gain. The intellectual dishonesty is palpable. The spinelessness of those who would call out 'abuse' in one situation and not the other indicates a level of philosophical discountenance bordering on completely discrediting said statements.

As I've said before regarding

As I've said before regarding comments like yours, if only you could live under his rule without subjecting the rest of us. We haven't even begun to see the path he plans to cut for America. In his own words, if he goes back in, he will answer to no one.

Let me assure you that you right-wingers crying about Obama are "preaching to the choir." For those on the fence (between Obama and staying home, not between Obama and Romney), you are only pushing me toward Obama.

I don't particularly care for his track record, but it will be worth holding my nose and voting for him just to see people like you go insane :-)

You "Doomsday" people are

You "Doomsday" people are funny. Obama is not going to push us over the edge into whatever hell you are imagining. We are already there and have been for a long time. It's just that you don't happen to like the flavor now. Mitt and Obama are all part of the same scheme. Do you honestly think corporate America is going to allow anyone to rock their boat? I mean who controls the so called government in this country? Get real and realize that the die has been cast for quite a while and all you are going to see is fluff of one flavor or another, kind of like cotton candy, no substance at all.
