Hey, America! Did you know that Osama bin Laden is dead? Well, just in case you’ve forgotten, President Obama reminded all of us when he kicked off his counterterrorism speech at the National Defense University this afternoon.

The perpetually spiked bin Laden football isn’t the only thing that’s worn out. Bin Laden’s death seems to be the only card Obama has to play, and citizens are getting pretty worn out, themselves.

Meanwhile, still no mention of what bin Laden’s kindred spirits did in Benghazi:

Deaths are only notable for Obama when he can boast about them.

Pathetic.

      ha ha Weekend at Bernie’s that is priceless

    and again, Major Nidel Hasan was a loner and a disgruntled employee in the USArmy, in his disgruntled-ness that horrendously took lives and injured other employees of the USArmy and civilians, so now it is now no longer terrrrrrrorism it is an Act of Disgruntled-ness…

    Yet, we all still do not know why the Seals took out binLaden, and not a drone?
    How many years later is it…and the Truth is still being evaded, run from, escaped from…hmmm?

    • Clete Torres

      Didn’t Teh Won finally fess up and call Maj. Murder’s act ‘Islamic Jihad?’ Thought I read that somewhere today, but it might just be my meds…

      • TocksNedlog

        No, he didn’t.

        • Clete Torres

          Dang – where did I see this? Now I’m wondering what I read…

          EDIT: I KNEW I saw it somewhere:

          The president also acknowledged that the Ft. Hood shooting of 2009 was an act of “Islamic Jihad.” The administration has long resisted references to Islamic extremism, and referred to the Ft. Hood shooting as “workplace violence.”

      Disgusting, despicable, dishonest, degradable, dirty, disgraceful, down…sorry,, Thesaurus ran out of polite synonyms that begin with ‘d’ but pretty sure I could come up with a few more using other letters of the alphabet. Disgusting pretty much nails it for me.

      The takeaway is that if you must shoot people at your work place you must shout Allahu Akhbar!!!111 and you’re all set.

    What do you suppose Putin and Xi are thinking well listening to Obama’s speech? I doubt it is fear.

    Did he learn about that in the news like we did?

  • Jennifer

    This speech is the epitome of ‘drone’!

    • Jennifer

      Oops…missed the Mark Knoller thread.

  • OLLPOH

    ???Interesting that there was just a camera video drone over Benghazi and no ordnance drone(s), no Seals, no Truth, sure looks like dereliction of duty…

    Fact Finding Mission…Who? What? Where? When? How? Why?
    When will we get the Truth? what year will it be?

  • ObamaFail

    “I, Barack Obama, parachuted down into enemy territory alone. There was at least 100 terrorists between Bin Laden and myself. And bare-handed, I fought them all. I dodged bullets. I rained hellfire down on them with thunderous fury!! And then, it was just Bin Laden and I, one on one. No interruptions, no distractions, no weapons, no mercy. He unleashed the fury of Allah, but I countered with the might of America. And he was dead. I did it on my own. With no help!” – Barack Obama (the next time he needs to remind us that he killed Bin Laden)

  • FreedomFighter

    Its the only positive thing that has come from this administration.

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      It didn’t come from this administration, it came from the Seals.

    SEAL Team 6 is the ONLY branch of government Obama claims responsibility for (credit ACE for this).

    Osama is dead over & over has nothing to do with this Republican witch hunt in Benghazi

    POTUS: “Osama Bin Laden is dead” How about our boys in Benghazi? ‘Leave and Let Die’

  • Penmar

    Osama is dead and so are 4 Americans that were in Benghazi. Did I hear Jay Carney say 8 months is a long time ago, what’s that make Osama news, ancient history?

  • Wing_attack_Plan_R

    the only thing about his administration that he claims to know anything about

  • ceemack

    Osama bin Laden is apparently taking the same place in Obama’s speeches as Francisco Franco had in the original “Saturday Night Live” weekend update: “Osama bin Laden is still dead.”

  • Conservative54

    Osama is dead, and so are 25 Navy SEALs from SEAL Team Six, the unit that carried out the raid that killed bin Laden. I wonder who is to get the blame/credit for that? http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/05/10/families-fallen-navy-seals-in-2011-attack-say-government-is-to-blame/

  • X_Navy_SWO

    It was funny 35 years ago when Chevy Chase did it on SNL. Now, the president is just sad.

  • vetgal1970

    Bin Laden may be dead, but Al Qaeda and its off shoots are alive and growing in power thanks to this administration. He has helped them gain power in places like Egypt and Libya, he has armed them, he has paid the Jizya and called it foreign aid, he has excused them and even protected them when they attack the Coptic Christians around the world, he has given them a say in OUR own government, and he has pretended that they don’t threaten us right here in America. They don’t need Osama, they have Obama.

  • Clayton B

    . . . I now understand why Obama continues to beat-this-dead-horse: glue -to hold together his credibility, and hair -for his wife’s head . . .

  • jimmielynn

    I wonder how he found out. he seems to be left out of all the juicy news.

  • Johhny B Good

    Obama: “Today, Bin Laden is dead”, Carney: “That happened a long time ago”, Clinton: “What difference does it make”, Shulman: “I went to the White House 119 times….mainly for the Easter egg roll”….WOW!!!

  • MyrmidoNOT

    Obama Day 1 “Please hold my calls unless it is regarding Osama Bin Laden”

    “Hi, this is the consulate in Benghazi! We’re under attack!”

    “Sorry, Obama is having his calls held”

    “This is the IRS, unless Obama tells us otherwise, we’re going to go ahead and target conservatives”

    “Sorry, Obama is having his calls held”

    This has become a drinking game. Every time Obama brings up bin Laden, take a shot.

      Can’t play. Liver is damaged from the ‘Fair share/fair shot’ drinking game during state of the union.

    Where was king bo the eve of 9/11/12? Why didn’t he order a rescue? Who gave order to stand down? Why? We will not forget the #Benghazi Four. We will not. Even tho Osama is dead. #Benghazi happened.

  • Turd Burglestein

    If benghazi was a long long time ago, then osama is ancient history.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    It’s official. Obama is a one-trick pony.

    • TocksNedlog

      And his one trick is, uh, pretty f*cking lame.

      • JustLikeAnimals

        His one trick was actually pulled off by someone else.

        • TocksNedlog

          Oh, I thought you meant his trick of spiking the football long after the game, and the season, are over.

  • Jeremy

    “All I know about the killing of Bin Laden was from news reports I heard when I was walking off the Golf course”

    – Obama if he actually told the truth.

  • Rdis

    In the words of Hillary Clinton, “What difference, at this time, does it make?” We have 4 Americans Killed in Libya by an Al Qaeda linked group with no body being captured, even though we know who a number of them are. We also have a Jihadist attack at the Boston Marathon. At this point happened a long, long time ago as compared to Benghazi.

  • tops116

    Yeah, Bin Laden’s dead. So are Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods. Funny how Obama never wants to talk about them.

    • TocksNedlog

      He will . . . as soon as someone at the WH bothers to tell him that it happened.

  • jetch

    we laugh, but there are a lot of idiots (a majority of voters) who buy this nonsense. low information voters who – similar to occupy types and their mic check – just parrot what he says. if you visit a lefty blog right now, you’ll find nothing but praise for obama and his killing of osama..

    sad, but true.

  • DeadlockVictim

    This is like listening to your unemployed, slacker brother-in-law tell you about his game-winning touchdown pass for the umpteenth time in ten years.

    • TocksNedlog

      President Al Bundy.

  • Jon

    Elvis has left the building on “Osama bin Laden is dead”.

  • TocksNedlog

    Today he shambled even further into irrelevance.

  • Clete Torres

    The frequency with which he mentions it makes me think that when the words ‘bin Laden’ are heard, a bell dings and a treat appears on his podium.

  • camnpat

    My guess: he learned about it from the news yesterday.

    Or, he watched Zero Dark Thirty last night.

    Edit: I know what it is! Disqus has been sending me late alerts that I have received replies to posts from months ago. I am sure Obama just now got his Disqus update that he has a message from Panetta informing him that Osama is dead.

      He should do the honorable thing and give it back.

    His desperation is not going unnoticed.
    What an incompetent idiot.
    And folks actually reelected this dolt!
    Sad.

    No major attacks on US! Benghazi, Boston Marathon, Fort Hood! Just because the Mom Jeans, bike helmet nerd boy doesn’t say terror, guess what……they were still terror attacks!!

  • rivers

    Bin Laden is dead and so are 25 members of SEAL TEAM 6 because their helicopter was shot down.
    Tell me, has there been any phone lines tapped or investigation into who leaked the info that it was Seal Team 6 that took out Bin Laden?

  • Acuda4me

    Osama Bin Ladin is dead? Obama must be reading old newspapers.

  • Bemani Dog

    SNL should totally bring Chevy Chase as a special correspondent to Weekly Update with one line: “In other news, Osama bin Laden is still dead.”

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Listen. Let’s be clear. Killing Osama bin Laden happened a long time ago.

  • ERMERGERD

    Hey, that’s great. Now 9/11 can’t happen 12 years ago.

    The thing is , this is all Obama has and it wasn’t even his call. Leon Panette ordered the raid of Osama Bin Laden. Obama was on the golf course!!! He didn’t even know about it until Seal Team Six was over Pakistani airspace!!!!! He is such a fraud. Taking credit for an accomplishment that isn’t even his!! What a pansy joker!!LOL

  • frogmouth

    Hearkens back to the first season of SNL.
