Are the Navy SEALs Swiftboating Obama?

It takes quite a bit of gall to agitate the Navy SEALs but Barack Obama appears to have a sufficient amount. First up, here's an ad from a group known as Veterans for a Strong America, headed by decorated Iraqi war veteran, Joel Arends. The message is quite simple; Obama's narcissism is over-the-top  when it comes to his level of involvement in killing bin Laden. Also noteworthy is the fact that it isn't just veteran SEALs who are not pleased with Obama; the growing list also includes current ones.

Buzzfeed has more on the growing disgust among the SEALS:
In the wake of a warm conservative reception for a web video trashing the president for “spiking the football” on the anniversary of Osama Bin Laden’s death, the conservative group Veterans for a Strong America plans to gather Navy SEALs and Special Forces operators to criticize the White House during the 2012 campaign.

“We’re looking to [put together] a coalition, to field SEALs and operators that want to come out publicly,” executive director of Veterans for a Strong America, Joel Arends, tells BuzzFeed. “I’ve had a lot of discussions with former SEALs and current SEALs. I’ve been talking to operators in the community. There is palatable discontent.”

Arends, a 35-year old Iraq war veteran who has spent the last six years in conservative activist circles, started the group last fall during the Republican primaries.
Arends sat down with Fox's Megyn Kelly to discuss the campaign. If for no other reason, watch it for the steady stream of football metaphors.
