Conservative group’s ad tries to deflate historic presidential remarks

“The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat al Qaeda," the president said.

    Sooooooo, basically, this ad is an admission that all the things they're trying to attack in it are huge accomplishments by Obama, they recognize it and it worries them so much that they all launched the Brown October in their manpampers. Got it.

    Americans for the Prosperous - not a group that is exactly grass roots, unless you consider what the people that are following them are smoking.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! Lure them in with the Obama drivel they crave and give them a good dose of reality instead.

    Whitehouse comments: "Dang, these guys are good!"

    CNN does the same thing for this same group when you visit their home page – An ad automatically starts that is against President Obama and you can't turn it off. Advertising in front of someone that is opposite your party would just turn the listener OFF!!!

    Welcome to the United States of Charles and David Koch, folks. No longer land of the free or home of the brave ... just another corporate sell out ... sea to shinning sea.

    Too bad they skipped over the parts where Pres. Obama gives credit to the "years of hard work" put forth by "members of our military". Everytime he speaks about the event, he always lays credit where credit is due does not try "to spike the football."

    The tactics on the right just get sleazier and sleazier. Obama made a gutsy call ordering the Navy Seal attack on Bin Laden's compound instead of just hitting it with a missile. The only reason we got the intelligence to get Bin Laden is because the President re-energized the search several years after Bush gave up. Do you remember, "Look, I don't know where Bin Laden is... and I don't give it much thought."

    I am glad they (Kroch brothers) are helping to publicize this major Obama accomplishment.

    Out of context and selective hearing are just some of the things you can expect from this dishonest group.

    Gutsy call? From a conference room in Washington? Darn, the way he has been milking it you would think he rode in on the lead helicopter. Classic Obama. But then he takes credit for a victorious exit from Iraq too, when in early 2008 he was running around the country telling Americans that Iraq was,"... unwinnable.". Thank goodness GWB didn't listen to him.
