Romney should admit that his business style cost/benefit analysis of the situation would have meant that he would never even found Bin Laden because he wouldn't have put the resources into it, that would be truly honorable. Bush had a stated a similar attitude towards Bin Laden, I think Obama should take credit for putting the resources into finding Bin Laden, where his predecessor didn't and his opponent said he would not.

Why? Do you feel safer now that Bin Laden is dead? Has his death resulted in anything which indicates that this Country is more secure? Safer?

Speaking of honorable, what about Saddam, who was captured ALIVE and brought to justice? Was that not a better result? Isn't that what this Country used to stand for? Justice? Or simply assassinating Government leaders (Khadaffi) or terrorist leaders?

While I personally have no use for Bin Laden, Saddam or even Khadaffi, it appears that this Government is setting a new trend on how to rid the world of these undesirable, which might look good at first, but could backfire in that some Country might consider the same approach to our allies and their leaders. Are you okay with that?

Bin Laden may have been the person (leader) responsible for 911, but it took more than one person to carry that order out. It's possible that in their ranks there is another new leader, still unknown to us.

This one particular act may make absolutely no difference in the scheme of things and there is no reason to "brag" as if the world is a better place without him.

Romney couldn't order a Happy Meal at McDonald's. The only thing he knows how to order is having people fired.

The world IS a better place without Bin Laden. How brain dead could you be to not know this? The mastermind of Al Queda needed to be dead so he would not coming up with anymore wild ideas either in or out of jail. It's like an ant nest. The queen ant has been destroyed and now the nest is without a leader. It will take a while for the "colony" to regroup, but in the meantime it is weak and we can keep better control of it.

Everyone with half a brain knows killing Bin Laden was a good deed. You're just mad because a Republican didn't have the interest or the gumption to get the job done. Unless it personally benefits a Republican, they don't have gumption to do anything. And Republicans want to keep war going at all costs since they profit from it so well.

Obama should be proud and the country should be proud of him. If nothing else, we don't have to worry about Bin Laden scheming and plotting against us.

Are you freakin kidding me? Do you honestly believe that this is about politics, even though Obama wants you to believe it is? Your words, "benefit a Republican"? How so? Or how does this benefit a Democrat? And if you believe so much that it's the Republicans who want to keep war going, pray tell us what Obama has done in the last three years to get us out? Why did we go to Libya under Obama's watch? Why are we sending troops to Africa under Obama's watch? Is Obama and/or the Democrats "profiting" from these "wars"?

AND, if you believe that we are now in no danger of terrorists since Bin Laden is dead, why is the TSA still screening old women and children at the airports? Feeling "safe" now are ya?

You have to be brain dead to believe anything that comes out of this Administration without checking other sources for information. You have to be brain dead to believe that anything Obama does has a noble motive. You have to brain dead to be one of Obama's sheep. If the shoe fits.....

WHAT WOULD YOU Obama baloney people KNOW -- ONLY KNOWING EATING HAMBURGERS?

TARGETING TERRORISTS WAS STARTED BY REPUBLICANS, BEFORE YOU taco, burrito and HAMBERGER-EATER baloneys KNEW WHO THAT OBAMA CAME FROM.

IT WAS STATED BY NAMING THOSE like IRA, PLO, HAMAS, ETC., JUST BEFORE AND DURING Bush PERIOD, which was primarily opposed by you Obama associates, talking about middle east to elsewhere, while you asociates opposed wars most of the times.

Axis-of- evil was the term started by Bush, and now you this Obama seemed to take over as such, wanting a war-monger option to IRan, while you contradict yourselves and Obama as you associates oppose wars most of the times?

AND NOW YOU THESE OBAMA baloneys are trying to take over and be specialised in terror targeting, talking about Bin Liden saga by touting all the jazz of boasting ?

What is the big deal, as you Obama and taco burger-eater associates even boast as your expertise to target against your people, like Muslims, Arabs who are supposed to be more as terrorists, since IRA is gone ?
