US Soldiers Killed In Afghanistan Firefight Were From 4th ID

The eight U.S. soldiers who died in one of the deadliest attacks of the 8-year-old war in Afghanistan were assigned to the 4th Infantry Division, the military said Wednesday.

Shouldn’t the Commander in Chief  worry more about Foxholes, less about Fox News?  Our soldiers are sacrificing their lives and President Obama is Voting Present, making no decisions at all and is instead focusing on whining about a News outlet.  While people DIE.

I first read about the “war on Fox News”  at Gateway Pundit the other day:

White House Tells CNN They Are Punishing FOX News (Video)

The White House is upset that FOX News does not fall in line with the other networks.
They can’t understand why FOX won’t factcheck SNL skits like the other good networks.

White House Communications Chief Anita Dunn whined about FOX News… again… for 9 minutes today.

Being a grown-up, I of course assumed that it HAD to be just a one-time deal and that whoever pushed that meme would probably be reprimanded for its idiocy.  Nope, I was wrong. I sadly mis-judged the utter and absolute incompetency and dangerously naive agenda of the Administration.

more about “Shouldn’t commander in cheif worry mo…“, posted with vodpod

From Breitbart tv , regarding above video:

Fox News: In recent weeks, the White House has begun using its government blog to directly attack what it called “Fox lies.” David Gergen, who has worked for President Bill Clinton and three Republican presidents, questioned the propriety of the White House declaring war on a news organization. “It’s a very risky strategy. It’s not one that I would advocate,” Gergen said on CNN. “If you’re going to get very personal against the media, you’re going to find that the animosities are just going to deepen. And you’re going to find that you sort of almost draw viewers and readers to the people you’re attacking. You build them up in some ways, you give them stature.”

That’s it;  now MY gloves are off. (Yes, that was my gloves on before, sadly, but, I’ve absolutely had it now. *shaking fist in air*)

How about fighting the Taliban and Al Qaeda and providing enough support for OUR TROOPS who are sacrificing their lives rather than whining like a big baby whiny-pants about Fox News.  Aww, poor baby …. if Fox News is being all meany pants to you by “smearing you” with truth and facts and by somehow managing to not succumb to your alleged charms nor be all tingly-legged, perhaps you should “unclench your fist” and embrace them?  Or do you only do that with *actual* enemies of our Country?

Here’s a News Flash for you Obama, from someone else you hate (we pesky intranets people) Not everything is about YOU and your feelings and your “brand”, you narcissist.

You feel attacked?  Why?  Because ONE media outlet, together with some citizens, are doing  their jobs and trying to make you  do yours? You see, YOU work for us, not the other way around.  Try being under literal attack like our Troops. Or, you know, at least try to imagine it and send them the support that those braver and smarter men are asking you for, as is your job. Try being Commander in Chief instead of Narcissist in Chief.  If you can fit that in between your ubiquitous TV appearances and staged photo-ops – I realize those are of the utmost import — to you.

Perhaps you are worried that more of the Media will soon stop carrying your water and covering up for and outright lying for you incessantly?

Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp and John Malone’s Liberty Media Corp are also interested in NBC Universal, though neither has approached GE so far, CNBC reported, citing sources.

News Corp, which owns the Fox cable network and local TV stations, had been seen as a less likely bidder, analysts have said, because taking a stake in NBC might raise antitrust concerns with the U.S. government.

I’ll give you one thing, Obama. You have the most enormous and enormously unwarranted ego that I have *ever* seen. And I include Keith Olbermann there. Now THAT is saying something.

I’m also now using YOUR Alinsky Rule #4 for everything. YOU and your Administration can now defend yourselves against my accusations. So, here’s one:

I think you’re an idiot. J’accuse! (if that makes it easier for you, being an enlightened “citizen of the world” and all).  Now, try to defend yourself and prove me wrong.

I don’t think you can.  Either does Senator Dianne Feinstein:

When DIANNE FEINSTEIN makes more sense than YOU do, I think this comment on twitter is apropos:

someGit

Screw his stupid birth certificate…can someone show me his grammar school diploma?

Cliff Notes for you, President:  Some things are more important than your cult of personality and your poll numbers.  We are involved in two *real* Wars, President Obama. Our soldiers are dying.  Do the job you campaigned to do and stop just campaigning.

Unfortunately for us all, I am afraid that you are not capable of doing so.  Words matter?  Yes, but so do experience and Real World knowledge.  Sadly …  and scarily perhaps even tragically … for us, you appear to have neither.

    My new favorite phrase in recent political history:

    “The soft bigotry of lowered expectations”
    – George W. Bush

      Oh, I’ve loved the phrase for a while. And it is *completely* spot-on.

    Since January, I’ve been very afraid that Obama would not give the troops what they need in Afghanistan. Seeing how adding more troops seems so, surgish. And his O’liness doesn’t want to give any implied or actual credit to the last real president we had, President George W Bush. (We know that worked because all the terrorists that left Afghanistan and went to Iraq are now back in Afghanistan.)

    Now his O’liness has a peace prize. He also has an incensed far left base that are wondering why our guys are not on the way home already. So, unlike TARP, health care reform and other pet domestic stuff that he can not wait for and has to be done yesterday, our brave troops may soon the victim of the politics of “this is too important to make rash decisions.”

    Well Mr Obama, not making a decision is a decision that will bode ill for our troops and their families now, and I’m afraid it will be another nail in your future failed reelection bid. You see Mr Obama, many, many folks like myself were kids in the sixties and seventies and our fathers and brothers were sent to Viet Nam. We remember seeing our mothers scanning the newspapers to see if our loved one was on the casualty list, and even worse, the KIA/MIA list. I believe many of these folks like me are reliving this pain and fear that we buried, knowing these same feelings are what the military families are now feeling as their loved ones serve in harms way.

    We will not let our military be abandoned again with out consequences to you, Mr Obama and your supporters in the legislature.

      Bravo, Sir.

    PINO can’t be a “real” president. Why be shocked when he doesn’t act like one? His handlers, the oligarchy, are just trying to figure out what he should say to input into the teleprompter.

    Hopefully we won’t lose too many soldiers as we’ll need them here on the home front when we get back to the constitutional republic. Esp if ol’ Barry gets kicked outta office… in a nice orange outfit.

    In Re: the comment above about “his birth certificate” and “his grammar school diploma.” It’s so obvious that he’s hiding SOMETHING, but I don’t think it is necessarily what we all think it is. I can’t for the life of me understand why more is not said about the fact that the man he claims is his father just couldn’t BE his father. I mean just compare Zero with a photo of his supposed father. I vote for X. As in Malcolm. Just check out his photos. Go to Google and write in “Obama and Malcolm X photos.” It is Obama all over again…with his mother’s eyebrows.

    Obama is a spoiled brat. Immature children whine and cry when people refuse to cater to them…real adults suck it up and drive on.

    Two things: 1) Never underestimate your enemy. 2) Know who your enemy is. And the third thing is never go to sleep at the switch.

    Obama gets his feelings hurt so he has his minions attack Fox News, because they’re not in lockstep with the rest of his fans/followers.

    Obama’s stalling on this war decision & it’s costing lives; I am beginning to think that he feels the same way about our troops like he does for the unborn; he wants them to die. He’s running around doing everything else, pimpin’ Olympics, runs to accept another award he doesn’t deserve, and has other “important” things to do rather than deal with the war on terrorism. Is this the hope & change we can believe in? Nope, this guy’s incompetent, delusions of godhood, appears to be thinskinned an a tyrannical tendencies.

    I thought El Uno would just suck, now it’s more like he’s incompetent and oblivious.

    He’ll do anything BUT govern. Hell, he’ll do ANYTHING as long as it ain’t the job he was elected to do.

    My libtard acquaintances no longer wants to talk about how dreamy he is. Pretty bad if your true believers are starting to doubt you.

    Shouldn’t skimp on the Kool-Aid there, eh, Dear Leader?

    It’s appalling, and more than a little frightening, that the Whitehouse has said that it will make no officials (including the president) available for interview on Fox News for the rest of the year (or, one wonders, ever?)

    If this is “transparency,” then their idea of “stonewalling” must be a firing squad.

    S&B, this is something i’ve been saying since the election, re: the abandonment of our military at war. it began with the jihadists dancing in the streets 5 November 2008. they began their full-fledged attacks in the AfPak regions and proceded to win incredible advances and victories there. their supporting rally theme was, the new US President was “our Muslim” President and ally. (their meme, not mine) regardless of factcheck or mediamatters or what any Islamic head of state would say about Obama’s Muslim roots, what was heard by the jihadist foot soldiers was the name “Hussein” – and nothing else. and our enemies rejoiced.

    after the AfPak victories, and almost immediately after 20 Jan 2009, foul plans came together. Taliban blew the few remaining resupply bridges through the border areas from Paki into Afghanistan… Taliban shut down in direct company-size attacks on both supply roads from the north… Hillary almost lost (on purpose) our only airbase in the area, Manas AB. (just recently paid them to keep it open) and more setbacks too many to list here, but were totally out of the question just a year ago. now allow me to say as one who is directly involved in sending goods to our combat troops, this POTUS and his administration have been a complete disaster in Afghanistan. Gen McKiernan knew he was being cutoff and gladly left when ordered to leave. at first his replacement tried to toe the party line with such things as those stupid made-in-the-Whitehouse Rules Of Engagement which directly got our troops killed, but eventually Gen McChrystal knew he was being set up as a fall guy. the recent “leak” of the General’s ultimatum, which was more of a warning about what would happen if an army is cut off in battle, got the General’s hand spanked by the Appeaser In Chief onboard AF One. God bless our General for having the decorum to not bitch slap that crackhead punk.

    the military KNOWS they are being set up for massive failure, and they do NOT like it. they know they are being short-stacked to make Afghanistan look like Vietnam as much as possible. in order to lose Afghanistan, the media needs body counts, and this Administration is trying like hell to give them dead soldiers. it is sickening and disgusting.

    yet how can we speak truth to power by yelling “You lie!” when the state-run media will just laugh and claim we are extremists?

    “Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of my people?” (Jeremiah 8:22).

      Sadly, you’re more right than you know. He’s dithering because he wants to appease his moonbat base while at the same time figure out how to manage the situation in Afghanistan without going up in flames in the opinion polls.

      I predict his quest will be in vain. This is where the rubber [of reality] hits the road; by attempting to grasp both, he will gain neither.

      Of course they’re going against Fox, who else will show [and tell] people what’s really happening.

      Will Fox submit? Nah. Could it blow up in their in faces? Oh yeah.

      Remember, the truth will out. Probably not as fast as we’d like, but it will come.

    Libs used to go on about “Iraq is a – Quagmire/another Vietnam/failed policy” while GWB was in office; looks like nobama is doing his best to make that come true.
    Probably so he can blame it all on Bush!
