It's Swift Boat time on Fox News again - this time, instead of a book and a video of veterans accusing a Democrat of lying about his military service, we'll have a Fox News media campaign "that scolds President Barack Obama for taking credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden and argues that high-level leaks are endangering American lives," as the lede paragraph of the post on Fox Nation puts it. This is also currently the top story on Fox Nation and it's rated "inspiring" by its readers </div></div>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Here's what's inspiring the Nation:

Leaders of the group, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc... is registered as a so-called social welfare group, which means its primary purpose is to further the common good and its political activities should be secondary.

...The OPSEC group says it is not political and aims to save American lives. Its first public salvo is a 22-minute film that includes criticism of Obama and his administration. The film, to be released on Wednesday, was seen in advance by Reuters.

"Mr. President, you did not kill Osama bin Laden, America did. The work that the American military has done killed Osama bin Laden. You did not," Ben Smith, identified as a Navy SEAL, says in the film.

You can bet your "fair and balanced" that these guys will get tons of favorable air time on Fox - and the network will be whining about the "Obama mainstream media" for ignoring this "important" controversy unless they give it huge coverage, too. And, of course, it's not Fox News or the Republicans driving this story, oh no. It's the SEALS </div></div>

They are not political but all they do is attack Obama. Their top guy admits he's a Birther!!!!!!!!!!

Q...thank the Conservative Supreme Court in their infinite wisdom to overturn 100 years of election law.

Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia.

Remember Alito shaking his head no when the president said we would end up with foreign money influencing our elections? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smirk.gif

The president was right on the money! Pun intended!
