David Koch denies Obama credit for Bin Laden

By Minngirl - Posted on 05 May 2011

I thought I'd start a new topic as the old one was already on the second page.

Speaking to a New York Magazine correspondent, he said 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.”

Koch went on to say that Obama is "a hardcore socialist, 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."  Translation:  President Obama is a successful black president, and that's scary to Koch.  I hope these comments prove detrimental to Koch.      

McCain made it very clear during the campaign that he felt it would be naive for Obama to conduct strikes within Pakistan without the cooperation of the Pakistanis. If McCain were President, bin Laden would still be alive and scores of other terrorists we've targeted inside of Pakistan would be alive.

I love how he threw in the socialist BS for more propaganda to the people who buy that millionaire/billionaire are victims nonsense.  

Great comments on the article:

1. "He just made the decision" 
So kind of like what a CEO does?

2. I remember the good old days, when Ronald Reagan tore down the Berlin Wall all by himself.

3.  The question for Mr. Koch, then, is this: In what way are YOU responsible for your company's success? After all, you dispute the link between executive decisions and real-world results. 

Perhaps you, Mr. Koch, are simply 'pretending' to be a good businessman while the truth is that you are simply
lucky to have talented people working for you
4. Yet David I am sure had this mission gone terribly wrong you would be laying the blame completely at the feet of President Obama. There are words for people like you.
5. "He’s scary to me." 
He would be. An educated black man ascending to the highest office in the land (world) WOULD be scary to a old rich white dude like Koch.
The article is still really new. The comments are surely to get better.
