Jack Welsh: Obama ‘Probably Faked’ Bin Laden Death

Oct. 08, 2012

Former General Electric CEO Jack Welsh waded further into controversy today by claiming that Osama Bin Laden’s death was “probably” staged to help U.S. President Barack Obama win reelection.

In an interview with Canadian business news channel BNN, Welsh explained that although he had no evidence to back up his assertion, something just didn’t “feel right” about Bin Laden’s demise in May 2011.

Welsh was in the studio to discuss his earlier charge that Obama falsified unemployment data to help his political campaign. A report unveiled on Friday showed a major drop in the U.S. unemployment rate from 8.1% to 7.8%. Minutes after the figures were released Welsh tweeted that Obama’s ‘Chicago Boys” had fudged the numbers.

We Bring Good Conspiracies to Life

Host Tyler Brown offered Welsh an opportunity to back up his comments, but he instead jumped at the chance to delve further into conspiracy:

“So Jack you said these ‘Chicago Boys’ will do anything to win the election. What else have they done? Do you have any evidence for any dirty tricks at all?”

“I have no evidence for this,” Welsh responded, “but it seems to me like killing Osama Bin Laden a year before the election is a pretty big coincidence. Some people think Obama faked the death of Bin Laden just to win votes.”

“And…are you one of those people Mr. Welsh?”

“Well… I think he probably faked Bin Laden’s death. Something just doesn’t feel right about the whole story.”

“First off, George Bush spent eight years looking for him. And Bush was one of the most competent, on-the-ball presidents in American history. Are we supposed to believe that Barack Obama did something George Bush couldn’t? That’s absurd. If you believe that I got an igloo in Hawaii I’d like to sell you.”

——————————-

“So Mr. Welch are you sure you want to make these outrageous claims on live television with absolutely no evidence at all?

“Tyler the problem with evidence is that sometimes it forces you to believe things you don’t want to believe,” Welsh responded. “As a proud Republican, that’s just not something I’m prepared to do.”

    “Tyler the problem with evidence is that sometimes it forces you to believe things you don’t want to believe,” Welsh responded. “As a proud Republican, that’s just not something I’m prepared to do.”

    Seriously… this was on a “news” show? The part of Tyler must have been played by Eric Idle, and the part of Jack Welsh had to be the great John Cleese, right?

      Cyndi,… the Daily Currant is a satirical site. 🙂
      I just found it myself a month or so ago, when I read this– “Bill Nye Blasts Todd Akin, Challenges ‘Fucking Idiot’ to Debate”, and posted it because I thought my hero Bill Nye had actually said and done that. (Sept. 3rd on desertdogmeh)
      Then, someone was nice enough to point out it was a well written joke.
      That’s why I’ve been going back to the Currant. Funny, funny, funny,… and well written. Close to http://www.theonion.com/ quality.
      Enjoy. (and try to forget the fact that Welch saying things like would be a very believable thing)

    LOL … it has become all but impossible to tell the difference between reality and satire with regard to politics. The far right has just gone soooooooo far off of the reservation
