Obama: ‘no excessive celebration of Bin Laden’s death here’ as he spikes football, politicizes


Um. What’s this?

With the Obama campaign’s latest ad, it’s pretty safe to say that the president is now OK with “trot[ting] out this stuff” and “spik[ing] the football,” as long as it helps him get reelected.

He then tried to once again slam Romney, in campaign mode even while giving a presser with Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda of Japan.

Obama: If there are some who’ve said one thing, and now suggest they’d do something else, I’d let them explain it.

As for Romney critique: he says to look at previous statements regarding going it alone in Pakistan. Doesn't mention Romney by name though

Obama: "I assume people meant what they said when they said it. That's been my practice." Um, really?

He said that with a straight face! Isn’t there a term for people who can lie like that? Here is just one refresher, President Obama, and it happens to be on this same topic. You lie so often that one can find them pertaining to any subject.

This latest ad contradicts President Obama’s own pledge after he took out bin Laden. “You know, we don’t trot out this stuff as trophies,” Obama told CBS soon after the terrorist mastermind had been taken out. He added: “Americans and people around the world are glad that he’s gone. But we don’t need to spike the football.”

Whoops! And as Twitchy reported last week, candidate Obama was against politicizing Bin Laden in 2008. Double whoops!

Incredibly, President Obama just denied politicizing Bin Laden & then politicized Bin Laden in the same breath.

Par for the course, baby. Par for the shameless course.
