Leftwing Blogosphere Goes NUts Over Obama Photo Release Reversal
It is a sight to behold. The entire leftwing blogosphere went absolutely BERSERK because Obama just announced that he WON'T be releasing the interrogation photos. Of course, he was a fool for announcing that release in the first place. And now The One is paying the price bigtime as you shall see in this DUmmie THREAD, "BREAKING NEWS: Obama will seek to block Gitmo interrogation photos, official tells NBC News," and this Daily Kos KOmmie THREAD, "Obama Makes Terrible Mistake by Not Releasing Pictures," written by leftwing radio host of the Young Turks show, Cenk Uygur. In fact, Cenk is now claiming that Obama just got PWND by Dick Cheney which is why we shall start with his KOmmie thread. So let us now watch the leftwing loons watch Obama crumble into pixie dust in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, enjoying DUmmie and KOmmie disillusionment on a mass scale, is in the [barackets]:
This is an unbelievable moment. Dick Cheney's PR offensive over the last month actually worked. Barack Obama just crumbled and will follow Cheney's command to not release the new set of detainee abuse pictures.
[Thank you, Cenk, for that confirmation that Barack is merely the Teleprompter-In-Chief.]
By the way, if you hadn't figured it out by now, that's why you saw every Cheney in the world on television arguing that torture works and that releasing more information would gravely harm the troops. They weren't worried about what was already released; they were worried about what was going to get released. They were trying to pre-empt the most damaging thing of all - the pictures that show the torture.
[A damning photo of a hand turning the Gitmo prisoner cell A/C from 79 to 69 degrees.]
The news reports will tell you that Obama listened to his generals on this. Yes, who put Gen. David Petraeus and Gen. Ray Odierno in their current positions? Oh yes, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Very fair and balanced advice you would get from them. This isn't about protecting the troops; it's about protecting their own behinds. They might have been in the chain of command that allowed this abuse to happen. Expecting unbiased advice from them is ridiculous.
[Instead we should expect unbiased advice from MoveOn.Org?]
And to add insult to injury, we have to reconcile ourselves to the fact that Dick Cheney still runs DC no matter how unpopular and despicable he is. He still has the Democrats eating out of his hand. Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic.
[Here, Joe Biden. Eat some birdy yum-yums out of Mr. Cheney's hand... Okay, enough with Cenk already. Now for the FUn part as you read the hilarious KOmmie outrage...]
Are Obama and the Dems giving Cheney a free pass in the hope that this all goes away? If they are they are just as guilty as Bush/Cheney. And if they are I am f*cking done with them.
[Angry KOmmies are FUn to watch!]
A hollow shell of a presidency. a stab in the back for progressive ideas and ideals.
[All hail our glorious emperor, the mighty TOTUS Khan!!!]
Complicit, spineless Democratic leaders will have no more ratching up the rhetoric on torture, leaving the task of bringing the US to justice to others, like the World Court and Spain.
[Send Pelosi to The Hague!]
Plenty of torture photos are already out there, everybody knows the Bush admin tortured innocent people. All that matters now is whether Washington insiders are prosecuted, or if they are protected from prosecution, which is effectively condoning torture.
[Plenty of "torture" photos are out there but no one has ever seen just ONE.]
It's just gonna make Obama look weak, stupid, and totally in cahoots with the WAR CRIMINALS who committed and who authorized such dreadful things.
[Cheney hypnotized The One good. Real good!]
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO! A thousand times NO!
My baby said YES! YES!
She didn't say NO!]
Obama just crumbled & will follow Cheney Command. The voice in this country of Cheney being stronger than Obama, and Obama giving in to Cheney.
[You are getting sleepy, Barack! Look deeply into Cheney's eyes. You are feeling weaker and weaker. You are now ready for total submission!]
I Want The Photos Released. I demand they be released. The courts have ordered them released. Obama said he would release them and then chickened out.
[WAAAAH!!! Baby KOmmie wants his photos! WAAAAH!!!]
Obama's declarations mean jack shit
[Hope and Change.]
It just looks like the Republicans won out. He should never in his life make them look good. I know that's silly but goodness, please stick to your guns, Mr. President.
[That's the WORST thing Obama could do: make Republicans look good which he did.]
Just remember, torture is nothing compared to the killing of innocent children, which happens daily by the US or with our weapons. Obama is not stopping that either.
[Woe is us! Let the self-flagellation begin.]
STOP BEING A COWARD, worried about reelection and some bullshit pundit in the media. Gosh no one has the ball to speak truth anywhere.
Oh whatever I am done.
These are war crimes and Obama is participating in them by enabling them to be covered up.
[So who gets sent to The Hague first? Obama or Cheney?]
I think American gets it: George W. Bush is a lying, duplicitous, altogether criminal son-of-a-bitch cut from the same cloth as Saddam Hussien - a tyrannical despot, happy to pave the road of his sick political ambition with the blood of innocents. He belongs in hell and it remains my fervent hope that he finds his way home expeditiously.
[Said a member of the "reality-based community."]
I certainly hope he doesn't give a speech about Truth, Justice and the American Way at ASU.
[Tossing Barack under the bus?]
G O D D A M I T P R E S I D E N T O B A M A ! ! ! ! ! !
WHEN I VOTED FOR YOU I DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR THIS SHIT. YOU'RE A CONSTITUTIONAL SCHOLAR. YOU TOUTED YOUR DEVOTION TO JUSTICE. YOU GOT ALL OUTRAGED OVER TORTURE. NOW LOOK AT YOU WITH YOUR LAME ASSED EXCUSE THAT IT MIGHT INFLAME THE ISLAMIC WORLD TO SEE MORE TORTURE PICTURES.
NEWS FLASH: THAT HORSE IS OUT OF THE BARN !!! WITH THIS DECISION YOU LOOK WEAK TO THE ISLAMIC WORLD !!!
YOU'D BETTER GET YOUR HEAD STRAIGHT AND RETURN TO LIVIN IT FROM YOUR GUT, OR YOU'RE GOING TO WAKE UP IN THAT BIG HOUSE AND REALIZE THAT THE WAVE THAT GOT YOU THERE HAS CRASHED !!!
[TIME TO CALL THE ALL-CAPS REPAIRMAN!!!]
removed my obama bumper sticker today. he is a false hope in the most central basic sense.
[Gasp! The false messiah! ...And now to DUmmieland.]
BREAKING NEWS: Obama will seek to block Gitmo interrogation photos, official tells NBC News
[BREAKING NEWS: Obama caves in to Cheney]
Because we can't handle the truth...or some such bullshit like that.
[You want the truth? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!]
Well, I WANT the truth...because IMO if this comes out, Obama will have NO place to go except to find Bush, Cheney and the rest of the cabal and see that the motherfuck*rs are charged.
[Charged with jaywalking.]
the guys who shoved plastic flashlights up little boys rectums(until they screamed) are dancing for joy
[Just the thought of that is making Ben Burch dance for joy.]
Absolutely . . . my sister's in Europe and she had seen torture photos before we did ....
[She saw the photo of that hand turning up the A/C in a Gitmo cell?]
The people who know are the people who have seen the images.
[Images of Leprechauns dancing around the pot of gold.]
They don't want to release the image where this woman is rubbing her tits in his face.
[Ahhhh! The horror! The absolute horror! Please Petra Verkaik! I beg you not to torture me by rubbing your massively mammaried hooters in my face!]
Child sodomy child pornography
[You just got the eager attention of one Ben Burch.]
My personal theory is that some of the photos show. Pelosi & Reid on a Gitmo field trip, using cattle prods on detainees.
[Ben Burch just volunteered to be a detainee.]
When pictures come out of children being sodomized in front of women, as is rumored, all hell is going to break loose.
[DUmmies seem fixated on sodomy.]
Little boys screaming in agony as their anuses and rectums are savaged by CIA beasts
[Ben Burch engaging in fantasies again.]
F*ck you and your "change" BULLSHIT. And you can take your "constitutional scholar" CRAP and shove that too.
[Does this mean you no longer wuv Barack?]
WAIT? MORE TIME? INFLAME PEOPLE? Where's MY Transparency??
OMG, as each day goes by, I see that I HAVE ONCE AGAIN been DUPED!! I've HAD IT!!
[So you were also DUped by Bev Harris?]
and it's f*cking disgusting for obama to be putting his tail between his legs for his military-industrial complex masters so quickly. it's very unbelievably uncle tom-ish of him.
[Said the completely pale DUmmie.]
Holding them back is WRONG. Obama is enabling the "war crimes" of the previous Administration. I DIDN'T VOTE FOR THAT ... I VOTED FOR TRANSPARENCY!
[Yeah, like that "transparency" about what that Air Force One buzzing of Manhattan was really about.]
If we don't release them, we look like pussies who can't take responsibility for what we let the shrub administration get away with. I'd be all for holding the photos until trial IF we could get a warrant on the Bush cabal.
[Why bother with trial. Just go straight to convictions. Do not pass GO.]
absolutely f*cking disgusting
fuck you, you stinking fake "consitutional scholar" and war criminal.
I want my campaign contributions back.
I will never vote for that fucking fraud again.
From now on, when that charlatan is on the tube, I will do what I did with * and the rest of the monsters--reach for the remote as quickly as I can. I will not believe anything that comes out of his mouth.
He sold us out to the banksters, he's selling us out to the insurance fraudsters, he's covering up war crimes, he's got his own useless Vietnam going in Afghanistan, he's french-kissing republican butt and using "lack of bipartisanship" as an excuse for ignoring the will of We The People.
oh, but everything's aok, because he's a "superhuman chess player" who has "secret moves" we mortals "can't understand." He's "eloquent." He's all about "change." He has a "D" after his name doncha know.
adios, ** (whose name I will not say again)
and kick me off this board, too, because I'm done with the f*cking democrats--with very few exceptions, they are all stinking scum
[The One has become The Nameless for this DUmmie.]
I too hold out NO HOPE for the CORRUPT SCUM who make up our national political leaders. With few, very notable exceptions, they are all career politicians and a waste of humanity.
[NO HOPE! NO CHANGE!]
Fight for public financing and IRV voting -- and keep at it!!
[Verifiable paper ballots will make everything all right again. It is the answer for EVERYTHING!!!]
f*ck any and all "candidates." I won't vote for anybody. I'd rather work to legalize pot. I'll just stay high all the time, and sell some LEGALLY to help with my retirement. screw the politicians--D, R, what does it matter? it's all war, all the time, in between picking our pockets for their various frauds and scams.
[Take a big hit off Kumar's bong pipe. It is more effective than verifiable paper ballots.]
He's a politician and he wants to get re-elected. Naively, we thought he was different but he's not - he's just more manipulative.
[His teleprompter had you fooled.]
Someone got to him - either threatened him with death or terrorism against his family or the like. I don't think he's afraid of Cheney the man, but something has frightened him out of pursuing justice.
[They threatened to waterboard his new pet dog.]
The pictures are out and all over Australia and Europe.
[And yet NOT ONE such "torture" photo has ever appeared on the web. Interesting.]
Hope? Nope. Just Rope-a-Dope. And we are the dopes. Hear that? That's the sonic boom created by the sudden and synchronous collapse of the optimism and hopeful enthusiasm surrounding millions reform minded democrats. It was caused by a massive and instantaneous right shift in the Obama space-time continuum trapping us in a changeless state of being for at least another 4 years. Such strong gravity fields are even pulling in dense unmovable planets like Specterus Uranus.
[Uranus? You've just penetrated the space-time continuum of Ben Burch.]
WTF HAPPENED TO TRANSPARENCY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
[It's stuck in Uranus.]
