Who’s your daddy? The entire ruling class, it seems.

It’s pretty damned patronizing of the ruling class and the president to tell us that we “don’t need to see the photos.” Who are they to decide what we “need” to see and what we don’t?  And as Ann Coulter said, these people who are telling us what we “don’t need to see” are all people who have already seen the photos.

How dare you put yourselves in the position of daddy-ing us? That includes republicans who are falling in lockstep with this thinking, as well.

At least 80% of the American people have been waiting for this day to come and now we are told that we can’t “spike our football.” Does this mean excessive celebration in the end zone (Ground Zero) is unbecoming of Americans?

I’ll gladly take the 10 yard penalty to be assessed at the kick-off.

Stop treating us like children who can’t understand everything from our enormous national debt to the propriety of (an honest to God) head shot.  I think we can take seeing it. After all, nearly 10 years ago we watched planes full of people crash into buildings full of people, many of whom jumped to their deaths and another plane full of heros who downed it in a field rather than allow it to be used as another missile. We’ve been seeing youtube videos of al Qaeda animals beheading Americans numerous times over the last 10 years.

I think we can handle seeing a photo of a dead bin Laden. I think we deserve to excessively celebrate seeing it.

Now show us the damned photo!

    Here, here. Our politicians talk tough but none are capable of walking the walk.

    By the way, great post Roxy. I feel the same way you do. I am offended that the ruling classes are of the mindset that they’re doing me a favor. I say, make the photographs available and if I choose to see them, I will. If I don’t, I won’t but it is not up to Obama to decide what is good for me.

    I cannot stand to look at his face, let alone hear his voice.

    And tell me what you think. After reading the book Game Change, I believe there’s a lot of truth in this link.

    My guess is that Obama is playing politics. He ill probably release the photos when he thinks they will do him the most good; like a month or two before the elections.

    It stands to reason that we have elected a bunch of timid ‘leaders’.
    Maybe our timid leaders need to feel our boot up their butt a few more times just to get the point across,….Boehner,
    Graham, Feinstein, Obama.
    It’s the freaking Keystone Cops, running around fearing what the enemy ‘might think’.
    That’s crap.

      Absolutely! They butcher our people and how many Christians in the middle east, and we are supposed to care about their sensitivities? No friggin’ way!
