The cartoon reads "If we’re electing a President based on who got rid of Bin Laden, I’m voting for a NAVY SEAL."
Doesn’t this really sum up the reality of the whole Bin Laden raid? This was a huge victory for the American people and the US military. Meanwhile, Obama is trying to milk this for as much political gain as he possibly can.
Benjamin Smith, a former NAVY SEAL hasn’t been so kind to Obama in a letter he wrote to him. Here’s an excerpt.
President Barack Hussein Obama – STOP using the Navy SEALS as a campaign ploy. Because with all due respect, (what little I have for you), you do NOT speak for me.
You have a movie about SEALS within the past year trying to identify with me, with the navy SEALS, and with anything that might improve your polling numbers…and yet it is all a sham to hide a weak un-American man desperate to claim the victories of others for his own.
You Sir are trying to take the credit for what the American People have achieved in killing Bin Laden. Your use of the SEALs accomplishment as a campaign slogan is nothing less than despicable. I, as a former Navy SEAL do not accept your taking credit for Osama Bin Laden’s death. The American Military accomplished that feat.
