Editing Bolsters Obama’s
Role in SEALs Film

New York Times, by Michael Cieply and Briant Stelter

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 10/24/2012 7:04:23 AM

Los Angeles--Thanks to the magic of editing, President Obama will have a starring role in a television drama about one of his biggest accomplishments — the killing of Osama bin Laden — that will be shown just two nights before the presidential election. But the star turn is virtually certain to bolster claims that the approximately 90-minute film amounts to a political stunt. Set for a prime-time debut on Nov. 4 on the National Geographic Channel, and a release the next day on Netflix, the film — “SEAL Team Six: The Raid

Comments:
Correction: Not HIS biggest accomplishments. The SEALs'.

Don't you just love it when people take credit for others' work?

What? Are they going to take out the scene from him playing golf while the attack was going on? Or are they editing him into the actual boots on the ground action suited up in military gear complete with head mic to call the plans?

It's hard to believe they're putting so much faith in this cable tv movie to drag obama across he finish line.

I really don't think Obama is the one who pulled the trigger on this and it's possible he didn't even know it was going on.How many people would be playing golf during something this important. The think intelligence got tried of obama's stalling on this and pulled the trigger themselves.

Let's hope this film doesn't cause otherwise peace-loving Muslims to become upset and do something drastic. One has to wonder whether bragging and boasting about the Bin Laden killing is in America's strategic interests at this point. It is certainly a foolish tactic for Obama's campaign for him to insert himself into what was in reality a professional military operation and to claim credit for its success. In trying to make himself look bigger and better he merely manages to look small and vain.

I hear the edit is to put Obama's face on one of the SEAL's bodies like America's Funniest Videos does with Tom Burgerone.

Does Obama know that as the President of teh United Staes, he needs to spend some time actually WORKING and not just campaigning?

His work ethic needs some work!

So, in a last-minute attempt to paint Obama as a hero who DOES care about the safety of America and its citizens, the president will star in a film about his decision to kill Osama bin Laden.

Although his Muslim pals have probably been notified that the film is a necessary 'stunt' for him to secure another 4 years in the White House, there are bound to be Islamic terrorists who are not amused.

Information just now released says that Panetta did not tell O until the SEALs were on the way as Valerie Jarrett did not want the capture at that time.

I suspect she wanted to wait until closer to the election.

The Republicans are definitely on the ball with their ads and can put them together quickly. A huge one is needed with pictures of the SEAL Team, their faces covered, and editorials about who really did this job. Perhaps some reference back to George W wanting OBL found dead or alive. Some video of SEALs training on the beaches and in the water while BHO frolics in the water while on vacation. SEALs shown dropping from helicopters into danger zones while BHO boards Air Force One. A scene on the golf links and of our coward-in-chief munching on all his favorite fatty foods, the ones outlawed by Mooche. A voice-over can say how the SEALS do not seek, nor do they want, the limelight or publicity because the job they do is dangerous even for such highly skilled men who have been trained for such tasks.

Yeah, when he gets his library, out in front will be a statue of Obama in armor, astride a war horse, with a sword in one hand, and in the other, the severed head of Osama bin Laden. And on the base it will say: "The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Allah." Because what he has learned as Commander in Chief is that you don't send mixed messages to other world leaders.

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said. "We believe that there is no reason for the G-7 countries to engage with Russia going forward based on its behavior," Ben Rhodes,

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.
