USS Cole, Part II

It's not a double-post, it's an homage.

Video of USS Cole Commander Kirk Lippold speaking about leaving Yemen with honor appears below the fold.

I love that story.

15 I hadn't heard CDR Lippold tell that. I do remember reading an account (I think back when I read Newsweek) told from the XO's perspective: He went out to smartly execute his Captain's order, but the sailors were so thrilled with the up-yours directed at the enemy, he just didn't have the heart to shut it down.

16 Barky and the useful idiot dems have declared our Star Spangled Banner to be offensive to muslims and a general hate crime. An electric guitar version is considered triply offensive. Barky would have court martialed Commander Lippold for Kid Rock playing in a muzzie country ... after our embassy apologized profusely for the "offense", of course.


Commander Lippold has been a rock in trying to keep America aware of the continuing threat the arab/persian/muslim world poses to America and the West.

34 Okay to refuel in Yemen but why would you let anyone get near you when you are doing it? I would have thought having that barrier that others could not cross would be standard operating procedure when operating in hostile territory. It is now.

Same with Beruit.We were aware of the threats of a bombing but we failed to erect simple barricades to stop it. Barricades which are now standard.


These are things that should have been anticipated and the solutions to prevent were neither complicated or costly.

Doesnt the Screen Actors Guild (union) require that if you have a recurring speaking role as an actor or entertainier on a television show that you be a union member and have paid your dues?

That's why extras can not speak in films and are paid so low for their work by the day.

At this point shouldn't Obama get a Guest host listing in the credits?

You are correct regard to the ROE which also contributed but as I understood it that the lack of barricades in proximity to the barracks allowed the truck to get close enough to do the damage it did.

Even in the Dem heavy Cuyahoga the Dems are at their levels they were at the end of 2008, but the Repubs are at 12,500 voters ABOVE their 2008 levels, which is a THIRTY SIX PERCENT INCREASE on their previous numbers there.

105 Newt would be great as WH press secretary.

But he was Speaker of the House.
So...would the press corps have to say..."Mr. Speaker"..."Mr. Speaker"...when they were addressing him?

I doubt that Newt would take the job.
But it would be cool.

Someone equally entertaining, would be...Greg Gutfeld.

106 "Obama was taught by one of his mentors, that the key to taking over the country is to weaken it by first destroying the middle class, causing it to become dependent on the government:" I am seeing the middle class being destroyed in Mass. I never had neighbors on gov't assistance growing up. Now many of my former middle class neighbors rely on gov't help. Sad.

110 "This is one thing I know: When Romney wins, all the assholes who sit ont heir thumbs and do jack shit in the MA GOP will be going to Washington, and we have a chance to replace them with real fighters."
I hope you are right. The 4th district has a fair amount of conservative voters. Although, most a RINO. Time will tell.

You hear about this?



A 28yo man was arrested last week at LAX. as he disembarked a flight from Japan.



The man was wearing a bullet proof vest over his shoulder. In his luggage were guns, knives, bodybags, and pyrotechnics.



Wait...BODYBAGS!?!?





He's on Hillarys staff.

That was the extra security the whitehouse was rerouting to Benghazi. They couldnt get a direct flight because the Repuclicans wont let them spend money.

Oh hell yeah....Dennis Miller!

The press corps would be constantly getting blank looks on their faces...going "Did he just insult us?"
And also scrambling to look up the big words he used.

You know what's weird?

When Biden said, "I sure do," after P-Ry asked him the UE of Scranton, I believed him.

As much as I wanted to see Biden get called on his bullshit, asking him to say the UE rate of Scranton was too big of a gamble.

I believe Biden was ready for it.

The possibilities of a scorching reply from Carolla,complete with expletives....are a delicious thing to ponder.

122

But Paul Ryan got Biden to hang himself out to dry just 5 seconds later.

"It's 10%. It was 8.5% when you took office. That's what happening all over the country."

Then Biden lost his composure and got truly frazzled -- no it's not!!

Things are going great, Joe! We shoukd be thanking you and Barack.

it'd make a great ad

Me too fluffy. Sec of Interior. And get rid of energy and put it under interior. Hat tip to someone from here on that last part.

125 118...When Biden said, "I sure do," after P-Ry asked him the UE of Scranton, I believed him.

But Biden had a sort of 'surprised' look on his face...when Ryan gave the figure of "10%".

I'm not sure that's the figure that Biden would've given, if he'd had to give one.

126 Masshole:
we're going to be the front line against the occupation by these damn dirty Democrats, here in the 4th CD. Here, we have a ton of Reps and some State Senators.

Next cycle we're going to take out Ed Pacheco and maybe get two more Rep seats. I'm working with candidates right now who are poised to take some House districts in Bristol County and its surrounding area.

I've got a team and a plan. We need money, but we're working on that, too.

TheMA-4 will be the Republican heartland in ten years, I'm certain of it.

129 Let me say it this way, Masshole: Why do you think they had Barney here for 30 years holding us down? And why do you think they brought Joe Kennedy III in here to blow away the field?

I'll tell you why: The Democrats know we're about to explode in a huge red wave here in the 4th

131 And of course barky wants to destroy the middle class. Totalitarian regimes cannot survive a strong middle class. Too much disposable income to spend on things like wood/plastic, steel and lead.

133 wheatie, #117; Infidel, #112:

I was thinking about an old Dennis Miller routine in the runup to the VP debate. He (a Perot '92 voter) made an offhand remark that if Perot had won, we could have had Stockdale as our vice president. A couple of people in the audience snickered. But Miller was serious:

"Now I know he's become a buzzword in this culture for doddering old man, but let’s look at the record, folks. The guy was the first guy in and the last guy out of Vietnam, a war that many Americans, including our present President, did not want to dirty their hands with.

"The reason he had to turn his hearing aid on at that debate is because those f***ing animals knocked his eardrums out when he wouldn’t spill his guts. He teaches philosophy at Stanford University, he’s a brilliant, sensitive, courageous man. And yet he committed the one unpardonable sin in our culture: he was bad on television!"

Loved him for that. I still do.

134 Seems to me it was sort of an ignominious defeat, like 9/11, only smaller. He seems awfully proud of getting his butt kicked. It's cool he can crack jokes and give speeches, but his men died. Sheesh...
