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!

Unknowingly, an IT guy in Abbottabad tweeted the attack on bin Laden’s compound. Then hours later, before Obama takes to the mic, Keith Urbahn (see his tweet below) in America, tweets the news to us.

From the National Review online:
“’Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we’re hardwired not to always think clearly when we’re scared,’ Obama said Saturday evening in remarks at a small Democratic fundraiser Saturday evening. ‘And the country’s scared.’”
I’d love to know the way those who fought and won WWII feel about being “hardwired” to not think clearly when they were scared. Were they scared in French foxholes, being shot at by Germans? Were they scared storming the beaches of Iwo Jima or fighting their way up Omaha Beach? Were they scared on the U.S.S. Arizona while Japanese kamikazes blew them up?
Remember how you felt on 9/11 and those heart wrenching days following that. Remember watching the firemen and rescue workers run into the Twin Towers to save others and the work they did for days after, trying to find survivors. Or those brave souls on flight 93 who gave all to down a third plane in a remote Pennsylvania field rather than have MUSLIM EXTREMISTS kill more thousands of souls.
Of course we’ve been scared. But being scared is what made us brave.
Does he think for a moment that Americans can’t act and act bravely when they are scared?
The arrogance of his statement is beyond belief. This is just one more example of his condescension toward the average American; another example of his belief that America and her citizens lack exceptionalism.
What we are facing is a future of uncertainty. Small businesses can’t expand and hire more employees because they fear what the next Congress will do about taxes. Taxpayers are scared because they have no idea how this health care bill will finally play out for them. We are frightened by the total disregard for the Constitution that we see daily from those who work for us in Washington. Brave soldiers are on the frontlines in Afghanistan and Iraq while secret war documents are traitorously leaked to the world and EVERYONE is afraid for their safety.
Ambrose Redmoon said “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.”
We know what is more important than fear and when we face that, we act. This is nothing more than his attempt to make excuses for his failed regime and the certain failure of his party on November 2nd. We will act and we will vote them out.
And yes, born from fear of what, unchecked, they have done and will do to us as a nation.
