Gutsycall.com Redirects To Obama Website

From the Weekly Standard:

Gutsycall.com Redirects Users to Obama’s Campaign Website

Daniel Halper

Obama’s not one to "spike the football" after a victory (or after killing Osama bin Laden), but it seems his campaign team (or some of his ardent supporters) doesn’t feel the same way.

Check out www.gutsycall.com — it redirects users to Obama’s campaign website, www.barackobama.com. Could it be that his reelection campaign made this call? Or is it just a couple of his most steadfast supporters?

According to this domain lookup website, the website was purchased yesterday, May 4. The purchaser, though, remains anonymous.

With anyone else we might give them the benefit of the doubt.

But doesn’t this sound exactly like something Obama’s campaign team would do?

    Someone should hijack gutsycall.com and direct it to bootycall.com…and the pictures should be of men.

  2. artboyusa says:

    The last time I heard anyone actually use the phrase “gutsy call” it was Wayland Smithers, Mr Burns’ grovelling assistant on “The Simpsons”…”gutsy call, sir” he grovelled.

  3. proreason says:

    This closely reasoned AT article refutes the idea that the “gutsy call” took any guts at all.

    In a nutshell, the author says that Pakistanis HAD TO KNOW and cooperated. Since the primary “act of courage” by the boy king was to send the Seals stealthily into another country’s sovereign territory without advance knowledge by the foreign country, if the Paki’s knew ahead of time, the whole meme is destroyed.

    And that doesn’t even touch on the widely discussed theme that Panetta did all the planning without the Moron’s knowledge and he and Clinton and Gates essentially maneuvered the boy king into agreeing.

    It strains credulity to think that Obamy would ever give the go-ahead for a mission to kill OBL. It just doesn’t fit his MO, which is to seek maximium political gain with the lowest risk level conceivable. If the Seals were instructed to off OBL, the order couldn’t have come from Obamy without it being somehow forced on him.

    If the AT writer is correct, and the Pakis knew about the raid, they probably also knew a lot about OBL’s activities and lifestyle. They would have known he wasn’t heavily armed or protected. So the risk level would have been lowered for a number of reasons. Under those circumstances, it seems like snatching OBL would have been a viable option. Yet they double tapped him. go figger

  4. Right of the People says:

    This just reinforces the idea that this was all a PR stunt that went wrong with the SEALs sending OBL directly to hell instead of capturing him so he could be paraded around like a prize pony. I’m only surprised that they did it so early instead of in October of 2012 so the boy king could reap the maximum benefit from it. It would have been on hell of an October surprise.

  5. Petronius says:

    Gutsycall should be one word, and rightly so. Because that word belongs to Nerobama, fits him like a glove. It is his special word : gutsycall.

    So now he’s off to Fort Campbell.

    Taking another victory lap, are we? Spiking the ball one more time? Still dancing our victory dance? Scoring another trophy? Another photo op?

    How gracious. This vir triumphalis, this man of triumph.

    The Greeks had a word –– hubris –– for overweening defiance of the gods. But I don’t think they had a word for this. For nothing in the Greek experience ever prepared them for anything like gutsycall –– or for anyone like Nerobama.

    Caesar’s triumph might have approached it. The parade of wild animals, dancers, musicians, and slaves carrying trophies and symbols … the Roman senators, magistrates, and trumpeters … followed by the white bulls and the carts heavily loaded with the spoils of war, with the weapons and insignia of the defeated foe … then the captives, with Vercingetorix in chains, to be imprisoned in the Tullianum, there to await his strangulation … and the lictors carrying the fasces wreathed with laurel … and then the victor in his chariot, with his regalia, the laurel crown, the red boots and red-painted face, with his family members and his legionnaires following on foot, all disarmed … then the showering of gold and silver on the stampeding plebeians, the offering of spoils in the Capitoline, the sacrifice of the white bull in Jupiter’s Temple, and the feasts, the congiarium, the foreign emissaries, the public games and gladiators, the grandeur, and finally the triumphal arch or monument.

    Augustus celebrated three full triumphs –– one for his conquest of Dalmatia, one for his victory over Mark Antony and Cleopatra at Actium, and again for his follow-on victory at Alexandria and the annexation of Egypt.

    When Caligula accepted the defection of Adminius, son of King Cunobeline of Kent, it was celebrated as a victory over Oceanus, with Caligula’s trireme taken back to Rome to be included in his triumph, along with the symbolic collection of seashells, the “booty” of Oceanus, and a bunch of Gauls with their hair grown long and dyed red.

    But alas, in the end Caligula received only an ovation. But then Caligula was a god.

    Nero had a triumph. When Corbulo, the Roman general in the East, forced the Parthians to make peace, Nero granted himself a triumph. But the triumphant Nero became jealous of Corbulo’s success and popularity. So Nero made a gutsycall, and ordered Corbulo’s execution. Corbulo committed suicide before the order could be carried out. Gutsycall.

    Today nobody remembers Nero’s triumph. In 68, faced with rebellion in Gaul and mutiny in Hispania, Nero himself committed suicide.

    Romanus orbis ruit.
