White House Politicizes Situation Room

by Keith Koffler on April 27, 2012, 4:03 pm

The White House invited NBC News Anchor Brian Williams into the Situation Room Thursday as part of its campaign to tout Obama’s killing of Osama Bin Laden a year ago, according to Politico.

I think maybe the Obama campaign operation knows something about Obama’s reelection prospects that we don’t, and doesn’t like what it knows, because THIS IS JUST TOO UNBELIEVABLE. They must desperate.

Maybe in his next interview, the president can walk us through the nuclear launch codes.

The Obama campaign also released a video suggesting that Mitt Romney wouldn’t have bothered to take out Bin Laden. Have look.

By the time he’s finished, Obama will make that ad Johnson ran proposing that Barry Goldwater was going to blow up the world look tame.

Anything, anything to get elected. Thank God Obama trascended politics, or this might be even worse.

I had to read that again because I was dumbfounded. What will it take to wake
Obama’s foolish followers to see what a dangerous and inept man he is the
Situation Room? What’s next show all his fans the ‘football’ not for throwing
either. Biden already blew one undisclosed location just shows Obama is a boy with a toy and he’s getting a bit too dangerous for me we won’t make it thru another four years of a celebrity President. Karl Rove’s new ad is spot on
add this and be very afraid. He care nothing for America and will put us in danger if he’d get a vote. Very scary days ahead. Are there no rules no off
limits places for his sycophantic media lapdogs?


srdem65 April 27, 2012 at 4:48 pm

There has always been a hint that the Obamas didn’t see the office of the POTUS, Commander in Chief position, and the building known as the WhiteHouse the same way most Americans did. They just didn’t show the respect and awe towards their new positions and home that other Presidential families have exihibited. MrsO’s use of the historic rooms as props for her personal political affairs and MrO’s lack of respect for the majesty and importance of his position makes us uncomfortable.

This latest use of a historic room used to make far-reaching and world changing decisions as a prop for a single TV program to promote MrO’s re-election is disgraceful. That the topic is bragging about the ambush and killing of a foreign national who was accused of terrorist acts is un-American and immoral.


Anonna April 27, 2012 at 5:13 pm

You’re right. I tried to describe this on another thread. The Obamas didn’t arrive as American members of a political party that won the historic and powerful office of the Presidency. They came in like little kids who broke open the locks on the playroom door.

They do not see themselves as part of a governing tradition in a remarkable nation, but are community organizers with no allegiance to anything that in place. They look for the soft places to maniuplate and exploit and they ignore what does not serve them. A historic desk is for Obama’s feet, a portrait of Washington is meant as background for Michelle’s gunnysack race.

There are two many people in positions of power these days who feel they are better people than our Founders, wiser than them, cooler than them.


kmbog April 27, 2012 at 4:50 pm

Look up high into the sky and spot that brown speck, that would be Obama’s spiked football.


anneinarkansas April 27, 2012 at 6:20 pm

Oh no…he could not throw it that far!


gobnait April 27, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Is anyone better off than he was before OBL was killed? The ‘Obama vs Osama Show’ has jumped the shark.


Anonna April 27, 2012 at 4:53 pm

Uh, where’s that photo of The One sitting in the war room looking very uncomfortable and reluctant to be there?

Was it worth all that money to hunt down Osama Bin Laden? Guess so if it gave Barack Obama a nifty attack ad.


Anonna April 27, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Where’s the picture of Beyonce and some rapper in the Situation Room? That started The One’s term off nicely.


rulierose April 27, 2012 at 8:31 pm

I didn’t like that one any more than you did, anonna, but let’s give the guy his due. “some rapper” is named Sean Carter, aka Jay Z, and he’s Beyonce’s husband. he’s also one of the most successful music producers in recent history.

I don’t like his music myself, and I hated seeing him in the sitch room, but (I was going to write “let’s call a spade a spade” but something tells me not to…) let’s at least acknowledge that he’s someone.


Anonna April 27, 2012 at 8:59 pm

I see your point, but I don’t really care how successful a music producer he is — he and his wife had no business being in the Situation Room except that they belonged to a certain gene pool and were invited there by a cool President.


Lizzy April 28, 2012 at 4:30 am

I agree and I thought Markie Post jumping up and down on the Lincoln Bed for one of Clinton’s pandering to Hollywood party weekends. This is our house and parts of it should be off limits to
everyone except those with a reason to there Situation Room is not a photo op it’s where wars start and men and women are sent into


sportinlife10 April 28, 2012 at 8:25 am

Oh, well, if he’s SOMEONE!!! A Successful music producer! Wow. So was Jack the Ripper. Too bad he’s gone.
Nominations are probably open.


Janice/Granny Jan April 27, 2012 at 5:08 pm

I didn’t want to see that video but I finally did. It seems to me that they stepped on their own message by attacking Romney and showing its blatant political message. I hope their hubris eventually destroys them.

Romney’s going to have to run a fantastic campaign and the msm is going to have to start doing its job or Obama’s going to win. Sad day.


Keith Koffler April 27, 2012 at 10:47 pm

It is hubris. I really don’t think anyone believes Romney would have been less likely to make that call.


Guillermo Grande April 27, 2012 at 5:15 pm

Incredible. I too am dumbfounded. It is like the second coming of Clinton who if memory serves blew his “decider in chief” moment twice.
How ironic that they are all for killing… UBL…abortion…but not those people on death row?! Gotta save the people on death row. These people must sleep hanging from their heels at night to get such an upside down view of things.


William April 27, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Any word on whether or not the Scriptures told him to kill bin Laden?


Keith Koffler April 27, 2012 at 10:49 pm

Eye for an eye, William. Maybe this new scripture thing he has going is working out . . .

Most probably he thought, “Damned if I do, damned if I don’t,” and just went ahead with it, though I don’t think that one is from the Bible.


Wigglesworth April 27, 2012 at 5:54 pm

I think Pluff and Axle are nervous about recent economic news and want to replace any negative thoughts that may be entering voter’s minds with an image of a strong CIC.


beedogs April 27, 2012 at 6:16 pm

“Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonalds and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger.

It’s the guy cooking the burger that should get the credit, not the clown.”


Keith Koffler April 27, 2012 at 10:50 pm

beedogs, you are good.


anneinarkansas April 27, 2012 at 6:18 pm

I saw this in a headline and thought that surely was not true!
Unreal…and just after campaigning to the troops in Georgia as George Bush rides mountain bikes for two days with Wounded Warriers…a man’s bike too…not a girlie!


Car in April 27, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Unbelievable. You’d have to be a mush-brain to buy this line of bs.


Cindy Lu April 27, 2012 at 7:13 pm


remember when he needed bubba’s dulcet tones in a press conference? which was just plain whacked-now he needs him to do his campaign ads?

If romney was just the tiniest bit stronger I really wouldnt worry about 4 more years of this nonsense, how does BO live with himself?



Sadie April 27, 2012 at 8:10 pm

I would have sworn that the Situation Room was the 19th tee.


Keith Koffler April 27, 2012 at 10:52 pm

Same dress code, apparently.


Just2old April 27, 2012 at 8:13 pm

THIS IS JUST TOO UNBELIEVABLE. They are desperate. He had no political choice but to make the “go” call. And it turns out that the ‘gutsy” call was made by a US Navy Admiral. Oh yea, he was on the links…..what an ass.


rulierose April 27, 2012 at 8:41 pm

you know, I’m not even that surprised. these are the same guys who took credit for winning the Iraq War, after Candidate Obama had spent years doing everything he could to prevent that outcome.

Obama also personally took credit for the tiny section of the Keystone Pipeline that was already going to go ahead with or without him.

it takes a special kind of sense of self to pull this kind of stuff.


Just2old April 27, 2012 at 9:50 pm
rulierose April 27, 2012 at 8:36 pm

if I were the Repubs I’d do an ad like this:

“Barack Obama gave the command to kill Osama bin Laden, and he should get full credit for that. Here are all the other positive things Obama has accomplished in 3 years”…

…and then run blank air for 25 seconds.


Lizzy April 28, 2012 at 4:33 am

Like it.


Suzanne April 28, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Me too


Sadie April 27, 2012 at 8:47 pm

Refresher notes from May 2011 from “Mr-I-Have-To-Sleep-On-It.”

Barack Obama kept military commanders hanging by declaring he would ‘sleep on it’ before taking 16 hours to give the go-ahead to raid Bin Laden’s compound.

But the president stunned officials when he told a national security meeting that he wanted more time to think – and disappeared out of the room.

‘I’m not going to tell you what my decision is now – I’m going to go back and think about it some more,’ said Obama, according to the New York Times. He then added ‘I’m going to make a decision soon.’


Girly1 April 27, 2012 at 8:59 pm

NBC hypes the Brian Williams farce as ‘unprecedented access to the most secret, secure” place in the WH! Cameras are not allowed. Guess it was not so secure and secret back in May 2010 when Beyonce and hubby were sittin’ around the table!


What’s next – a National holiday? May 1 – the Killing of Bin Laden starring Barack Osama? Oops, that’s already in the can – the movie, that is.


Susan April 27, 2012 at 10:38 pm

Now the algae king is politicizing national security as well as violating FEC regulations by using a non-public area of the WH to sell his wares. This coward was all over Hillary about politicizing national security during the 2008 primary, but that doesn’t stop her philandering husband from selling her out to get the Marxist re-elected. Bill Clinton has no honor and evidently no pride.

Romney tried to distance himself from GWB (as did everybody else) on his run for president in 2008 and now his words are coming back to bite him. Sheesh, how many more of his flip flops do they have queued up for the campaign? We must win this election so Romney better start fighting back and hitting him hard. Still think he’s a nice guy who is in over his head, Mitt?


gracepmc April 28, 2012 at 3:48 pm

Barack and Michelle Obama’s appalling use of our military and our defense as political garb is disgusting. This is not the first time. It won’t be the last. They have no shame.


gracepmc April 28, 2012 at 10:34 pm Say what you will about President Bush but there is never any doubt of his high esteem and support for our armed forces. President Bush and the Warrior 100 K bike ride.


Susan April 29, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Here’s the full quote from Romney regarding going after OBL. What a fool I was for thinking these criminals didn’t take Romney’s words out of context. No wonder they took him out of context…the algae king gets angry when you diss his friends in the Muslim Brotherhood.

“I think, I wouldn’t want to over-concentrate on Bin Laden. He’s one of many, many people who are involved in this global Jihadist effort. He’s by no means the only leader. It’s a very diverse group – Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood and of course different names throughout the world. It’s not worth moving heaven and earth and spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person. It is worth fashioning and executing an effective strategy to defeat global, violent Jihad and I have a plan for doing that.”

If you play tennis, you’re aware of the player who looks spectacular, dressed to the nines, wearing Nike’s latest tennis outfit, swinging an exact replica of Roger Federer’s Wilson racquet, but the achilles heel of this player is that he’s a hacker; he loses against every player at the club. Yet no matter how many times this player loses, he’s always happy because for him it was never about producing effective strokes, or winning the tennis match. For this player, it was always just about looking good on the tennis court, and creating the illusion of being a real tennis player.

Our hacker president reminds of this player. He looks marvelous in his tailored Armani suits and starched shirts. He sounds eloquent and intelligent when he speaks. He has a winning smile filled with the whitest teeth short of an Amazon piranha, but you know what, he doesn’t have a clue about how to govern; he doesn’t understand the constitution he swore to uphold; he doesn’t comprehend what it means to be an American, but this player sure does look fabulous in front of teleprompter as he rifles forehand after forehand into the fence.
