Righteous Right Takes Credit for Osama Mission

One thing you have to say for Karl Rove, and all those who travel with him (Rush, Glenn,Sarah P., Michele, the Righteous Right) is they do stick to their story.

I watched the coverage of the Osama Bin Laden mission, watching President Obama leaning forward in that Situation Room, with Hilary with her hand over her mouth, plain on every face the intensity of the situation, and I watched clips from the President at the Press Club festivities, where he carried off his remarks, cool as the underside of a pillow, and I read the comments from the military brass who call Obama, "Cool Hand Luke," and I had to conclude--this guy has cards he isn't showing, and they are all aces.

What a contrast to the Blow Hard Right. Donald Trump, all self important, loud and idiotic.  Rush Limbaugh, who has never in his life had to make a decision where lives hang in the balance.  Karl Rove, who has never been in the field of any conflict personally.

And now Rove is saying that all Obama did was to take advantage of all the information Rendition and torture dropped in his lap. And, of course, rendition and torture had nothing to do with locating Osama. Someone in the Pakistani intelligence got a license plate number, and that connected to a courier and the rest is history, far as I can tell.

But then again, I don't really know, because I don't have all the details, not even close to the whole story.

But not knowing anything real does not stop Rove or any of his blow hard friends. They always know, because what they know is only what they already believed in the first place, unemcumbered with the truthiness of facts on the ground.

God save us from the Righteous Right.
