Spiking the Football
A year ago, President Barack Hussein Obama stated categorically he would not "spike the football" in regard to the killing of Osama bin Laden. Again, that was a year ago. The reality today, as we celebrate the one year anniversary of the death of America's most wanted man, Obama is spiking the football in Afghanistan in front of the troops. "I" decided we would go after OBL, "I" gave the go order, blah, blah, etc. The only thing missing is that Obama didn't take credit for flying the helicopter in, kill OBL and then take off again. Now, if you listen to the Democrats, they say they are not at all worried about President Obama's reelection, that he would win in a walk over Mitt Romney. But, this sudden flight to Afghanistan, to spike the football, wreaks of desperation of a campaign that seemingly is teetering on the edge. Of course, this was a campaign stop, paid courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer. I have stated previously that Obama's ego is his biggest problem. He thinks he is automatically the smartest guy in the room. His strong belief in Socialism, to cure all the ills of the people, is proof enough he is not very smart.
I honestly thought prior to the 2010 Congressional election, President Obama would move toward the center in order to limit losses in Congress. Of course, that did not happen. So, he has gone in the opposite direction. He is now more liberal than when he was a senator. He knows that Americans do not care for an extremist. He and his pals in the Obama Administration are nothing but Left-wing extremists. So, nothing is off limits now in a desperate bid to gain favor with the American voter. I personally think his taking so much credit for the killing of OBL is going to hurt him. People, as a rule, dislike a braggart. Especially a braggart who is exaggerating their contribution in an action such as the killing of OBL. What was so brave about giving the "go order?" He knew where OBL was. Obama had him dead to rights. Yet, Obama took 16 hours before he gave the order to go in and take out OBL. Does that sound like a decisive leader to you? Not to me and most rational thinking people.
