Obama Shamefully Exploits Bin Laden Fairytale In Transparent PR Stunt
President invokes “9/11 style unity” in desperate attempt to rescue his plummeting approval ratings by re-creating intellectually castrated, zombie-like worship of government

Mirroring how George W. Bush stood on the rubble of the twin towers to perform a staged public relations stunt in the aftermath of 9/11 as he enjoyed a huge surge in popular approval, Barack Obama is attempting to pull off the same trick, invoking “9/11-style unity” and busily heading to ground zero tomorrow to shamefully exploit the Bin Laden fairytale his administration has crafted.
Obama addressed a bipartisan group of legislators before a dinner at the White House last night, invoking, “the same sense of unity that prevailed on 9/11,” before Republicans and Democrats alike slavishly applauded him.
Of course, just like in the aftermath of 9/11, which we were told was committed by terrorists who “hate our freedom,” the announcement of Bin Laden’s death has immediately led to the screws being tightened on our freedoms that bit further. Naked body scanners in airports are now set to increase, ridiculous rules about not being allowed to carry liquids on board an aircraft that were set to expire are to be extended, and commuters are already being subjected to increased warrantless searches and harassment.
Obama’s effort to recreate the intellectually castrated, zombie-like collective worship of government and the police state that ruled after 9/11 is a desperate and forlorn act given that nearly two thirds of the country aren’t even fully convinced that he’s a U.S. citizen.
