Bin Laden Isn't Qualified To Be Dead Until Donald Trump Sees The Death Certificate

By Manifesto Joe

The problem is, how would we know that it wasn't a fake?

I guess that means that "The Donald" and all the rest of us will have to see the bullet-riddled body. But if the face has been shot to pieces, how would we know that Special Forces didn't just dredge up some 6-foot-4, skinny Arab for target practice? How would we know that Osama isn't actually still alive, scarfing hummus and falafel and advising that closet Muslim in the White House?

Well, by now I suspect you get the point of this sarcasm.

Any credit here for Obama?

Barack Obama seemed downright presidential Sunday night while announcing this big score of scores. But will he get any credit? If you watch Fox "News" during the next week, I'll bet that Il Doofus gets much more credit than Obama will. And Bush 43 couldn't get this guy for over seven years -- in fact, Bush diverted U.S. attention away from bin Laden and the Afghanistan-Pakistan region with his rogue-nation invasion of Iraq. That cost this country countless billions, some of which should have been focused on a terrorist network that actually attacked us. And according to some estimates, it cost over a million Iraqi lives.

I hope that the American people have sense enough to know that this day should have come much sooner, and likely would have, if the country's priorities hadn't been grotesquely and viciously distorted by ruthless, self-serving people.

This post is going to strike some people as irreverent and brutal. Sometimes honesty has an unfortunate way of sounding like that.

Q. What does the GOP and al Qaeda have in common?

A. Both were upset when bin Laden was killed.

Seems to me that this is the perfect time to take a tour of your favorite conservative websites, and in the appropriate place, mention "Maybe it's time to reassess your priorities when you're upset because a major terrorist is taken out.

Well said Joe. -and hilairious.

It's been fun watching some of the Congressman and Senators on the Right try and step around congratulating the President this morning... I believe Dick Armey repeatedly and disingenuously called him the "worst president ever"
...well I guess Dick Armey can just go eat a dick.

Trump and all the rest can go straight to hell and see bin Laden right before them. And they can all stay there with him.


Take THAT, Liz and Dick Cheney! Take THAT, Sarah half-Governor Palin!

If this doesn't get the POTUS re-elected, I don't know what will. I'm just horribly disappointed the Cheney administration used BL as an excuse to profit at the expense of the U.S. economy and our standing in the international community.

Interesting how liberals are now taking credit for getting Osama, however, up until this point have criticized the war as 'pointless', 'expensive' and 'not worht our time'. However, now that we have gotten Osama, its the best thing Obama has ever decided to do!

You guys are the idiots. You can't take down a terrorist network, unitl you take down its supports as well (see Iraq here).

None of this would have been possible if Bush didn't decide to go after the ones who attacked us on 9/11.

Love the typical liberal hypocracy. War is bad...oh wait, we got Osama? Thank you Obama!!

Anon No. 2:

It always seems to be news to putzes like you, but it's been shown over and over that there was no connection, I repeat, NO CONNECTION WHATSOEVER, between Iraq and Afghanistan, NO CONNECTION WHATSOEVER between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein. Even the Il Doofus administration, through clenched teeth, was FORCED TO ADMIT THAT. Stop watching so much Fox "News." That stuff rots brains -- presuming that you had much of one to start with. The fact that you are still repeating this right-wing myth calls that into question.

Has the government given you any evidence?


You want to know why we are at war in Iraq? It's because monkeys like you believed the government that Iraq had WMDs - you didn't ask for evidence, for proof - you just saw some big important people telling you what to believe, and people like you lapped it right up.

Why don't you do some research and demand some evidence instead of just parroting what the corporations on TV say?

Response to "fufluxflan"

Guess what, shithead -- yours truly was against the Iraq war from Day One and never believed what Colin Powell told the U.N.

Why don't you go out and buy yourself a sense of humor? And start taking your meds again, while you're at it.

It's funny how Repubs can dole out the "If you aren't with us, you are against us" pretty easily, but when it comes to solidarity around a common goal, and a Dem has made it happen, they emotionally and intellectually can't handle it. The Repugs are devisive and the most Unpatriotic. Oh, plus stupid.
