Seeing it shoved up Bin Laden's ass wouldn't be too bad either.

In Pakistan. Not Iraq.
And that's why America is celebrating President Obama's leadership.
It only points out how gullible Americans are and how easy it is to maneuver them.

killing bin laden hasn't eased unemployment, hasn't helped the deficit, hasn't lowered the price of gas, hasn't shown obama to be any more capable today, than he was yesterday in terms of libya, afganistan or iraq.
you lemmings are celebrating him.
america thinks he sucks.

. I've been biting my tongue since Sunday, because trying to have a rationale conversation with some people is impossible. Everyone deserves credit for their role in taking Bin Laden out. Obama went against military advice to bomb the building, and instead, ordered a precision strike. Even Republican leaders are saying this was a courageous move, because there was more room for something to go wrong than bombing. His decision, not only allowed us to identify Bin Laden's body. But it preserved computers, and information, that could lead us to other terrorists. The irony is that when Obama took office, and said he inherited a bad economy and several wars, people started saying, "Quit blaming Bush. Stop looking backward. You're the president." Now, these same people are trying to look back and figure out a way to give Bush credit for this.

If you listen to some of these folks, you would think that the Bush jr is the hero on this one.

It is incredible revisionist history at best - specious partisan garbage at worst.

Dear, if the mission had gone wrong, would you have given a pass on Obama?

And you're right.
Bush failed and Obama, who has been President for two+ years, succeeded.
2012 election season just got started with a bang and a serious bitch-slapping of The Donald.
Sad little mary the fairy.... If as you limp DlCK libs say... it was bush baaaaawk bush did it baaaaawk.. well BUSH DID THIS TOO.

<quoted text>Obama was in on the planning from the start. He decided what type of mission it would be. Evidently Obama was the one who wanted backup helicopters in case there was any problem with the mission choppers. Good planning. He was hands on from the beginning. He did a great job handling it. To bad that upsets you so much.
You are a raving moron... as usual. Your messiah had NTHING to do with the details you dolt. NOTHING.

Are you talking about the FACT that WATER BOARDING is what lead us to bin ladens capture?> The FACT that your messiah stated openly that water boarding NEVER produces any useful intel? THAT "Enhanced Interrogation" Turd-blossom?

It is now being reported that crucial information used to find and kill Bin Laden was obtained by Khalid Shaikh Mohamed, who was waterboarded during interrogation at Guantanamo Bay.

Rep. Dan Lungren, R-Calif., asked the attorney general whether the public could rest assured that the intelligence did not involve enhanced techniques.

"I do not know," Holder testified (That means he knows it was used).

Now your messiahs lap dog won't say it wasn't used.... shocking turd-blossom, just shocking.

So many republicans are switching their support now and will vote for President Obama after his strong and brilliant leadership that killed Osama Bin Laden.
I was pleasantly shocked when I heard so many right-wingers call in on C-SPAN saying that they now support Obama. I am almost as overjoyed and excited as I was on Election Night 2008 well maybe not as excited, LOL.

I hear the US Navy is willing to provide cement shoes to anyone wishing to make a pilgramage to Bin Laden's shrine at the bottom of the sea.

By the same token, Baby Bush had nothing to do with the details of capturing Saddam and his subsequent execution, correct?

Agreed. While it is nice that Bin Laden is gone and I give Obama a lot of credit for finishing the job its not going to guarantee him re-election.

Bin Laden has largely been an after thought to most Americans. It's been just about 10 years since 9/11 and we haven't had a significant attack on US soil since. Most Americans will soon forget about this and turn their focus to jobs, the economy, and gas prices.

Osama is so "last decade".

Obama needs to something for ordinary people ... like GET GAS PRICES DOWN.

Or get jobs to return from over seas.

Or stop spending money we don't have.

If the best Obama can do is MURDER THE BOOGY MAN -- he isn't much of a leader.

The next "boogy man" he'll take out will probably be Gaddafi of Lybia. <
