Obama Says of SEALS: “I Don’t Take These Folks Too Seriously”

Obama Says of SEALS: “I Don’t Take These Folks Too Seriously”

Last week, the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund and Special Operations Speaks started anti-Obama campaigns.  Both, founded by retired Navy SEALs, are complaining about Obama’s national security and the intelligence leaks and taking too much responsibility for killing Osama bin Laden.

When questioned Monday about the groups complaints the President said:  “I don’t take these folks too seriously.  One of their members is a ‘birther’ who denies I was born here, despite evidence to the contrary.  You’ve got another who was a tea party candidate in a recent election.”

This is typical Obama.  Any who disagree with his positions are either demonized or marginalized without addressing the issues they raise.

As far as the President is concerned, the Navy SEALs are fine for sending in harm’s way, but are to be ignored when it comes to policy decisions.
