"I'm Really Good At Killing People"

Have you heard about the latest political book by journalists/talking heads Mark Halperin and John Heilemann? The one called "Double Down?" It is really causing a lot of feathers to ruffle. Apparently these two journalists have found a source in the Obama Administration who has told them some really juicy stuff about internal - supposedly private - conversations in the White House.
One of the remarks, alleged to have come from President Obama, himself, has him saying "I'm really good at killing people."
And you know, I can hear him say that. That is the kind of flip remark that President Obama is known for. Every bit as flip - and every bit as true - as Dubya's remark that the richest 1% in the country consisted of "my base." President Obama is correct. He turned Osama bin Laden into fish food and continues to decapitate al-Qaeda.
And the Teabaggers can't stand it.
They are shocked, shocked I tell you, that the President could be so casual in his remarks about rendering the sworn enemies of the United States into greasy spots.
They call him "dangerous." They call him "bloodthirsty."
My. I did not know, had no idea, that the TEA Party was composed of such a bunch of bleeding heart pacifists. They make participants in the Peace Movement of the 60's and 70's pale in comparison.
They make the American sob sisters who so bemoaned the extermination of Native Americans in the 19th century look like Indian Haters.
"Lo, the poor Terrorist" should be their motto.
It is just amazing, isn't it, how such a vile hatred for a single individual who is guilty of being President while black will alter your political and social positions, turning hawks into doves at the drop of a hat.
Can't wait to hear what they will say when Obama comes out for capitalism.
Oh, wait. He already did that when he saved the American Auto Industry.
