Far Right Billionaire David Koch: Obama Deserves No Credit for Bin Laden

The far right steadfastly refuses to show a shred of decency

A few right wing politicians have made graceful statements praising President Obama for the bin Laden operation; John McCain, for example. But if you read right wing blogs, you’ll discover a flood of utter denial and mean-spirited refusal to credit Obama. It’s an almost universal opinion, which is how things always go in the rightie blogs these days; it’s become the Internet’s largest hate-fueled echo chamber.

Far right billionaire David Koch sums up the default wingnut position nicely: David Koch Gives President Obama Zero Credit for Bin Laden’s Death.

Strolling toward the dining area last night at the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Spring Ball, he told us that it was the military and intelligence agencies that deserved all the credit, while “all that Obama did was say ‘yea’ or ‘nay,’ we’re going to take him out or not. I don’t think he contributed much at all.” He continued:

He just made the decision, it was obvious where the guy is. He was one of the worst terrorists organizing attacks on the United States. I mean, no president in his right mind would not approve that decision to go eliminate him. So he’s getting a lot of recognition and his polls have jumped up, but his decision was the easiest of them all. The real hard work was done by the intelligence and the SEALs.

One of the world’s most wanted terrorists is hunted down and killed by the Obama administration, and who is David Koch afraid of?

Obama is “a hardcore socialist,” Koch told us, “and he’s marvelous at pretending to be something other than that, but that is what I believe he truly is, a hardcore socialist. He’s scary to me.”

Before They Are Mass Shooters, They Are Right-Wing Trolls I really don't know how this isn't dominating the conversation; I guess the election in Alabama, net neutrality, Trump/Russia, the tax bill ... Actually, now I kinda do realize why this isn't dominating the conversation. Still: it needs to ...
