President BO is a leader on the level of Aunt Susie's mongrel pup.

Volumes ...

Yes, volumes:
Bush:" I don't think about Osama, I don't care."

Joe and Mustang; they're both good, aren't they. The leadership thing's a joke.
Bd...that's not a quote, but good try. Remember, we covered this a few days ago: You get a D- for STILL not understanding context.

I don't know that President Obama deserves quite so much criticism -- he did give the go ahead to kill Osama bin Laden. I don't like the embellishments or self-aggrandizement he's exhibiting. However, he made a courageous decision and it worked out. Had it gone awry....? We'd be calling him an incompetent and blaming him for it. Jimmy Carter's failed hostage rescue attempt redux. You know we would have used any failure to savage Obama.

I just cannot jump on board this time. I am proud of the President, the CIA, the military & the Navy Seals who carried out the operation. Do I wish the President could take the focus off himself and his role? Sure, I do. But that doesn't negate the decision he made or the order he gave.

FW, I agree that this all went pretty well and admire and respect your sentiments... I think Obama deserves some credit. I think that the wait of 16 hours is questionable, tho we don't really know the circumstances (and probably shouldn't)...I think that he did little but hear from those involved and say 'yes'...but, you're right, had it gone wrong...well, really, we probably wouldn't have heard about it.

I also find fault in the WH giving such unclear information from the start, giving conflicting information, and then saying their main goal was clarity, when the facts didn't jive.
I think we know more now that the video was released...pictures don't usually lie.
I also have trouble with the whole funeral thing on the ship...lots of questionable things that we heard regarding that.
And, of course, Obama's ratings went up as far as LEADERSHIP and one can say all went well with this endeavor but his leadership is still not what most of us would call true leadership.

But, you're right; bin Laden IS DEAD.

Z said...

Hi, FW...I also wondered what you thought of my hypothesis that, with the bin laden son complaining now and so many saying things like 'we shot an unarmed man' and Pakistan's sovereignty was invaded (AS IF!), etcetc, that we could be hauled to the World Court...it's a piece a post or two down.
Thanks!! xx

Bush didn't care about getting Osama:

Is Sandra for real?

Please tell me that's a pre-teen leaving comments.

Z said...

Jen, scary, isn't it. I don't know the age but you're probably right.

Also, we covered that subject in depth and taught some obama lovers the truth, maybe she wasn't here yet.

Look, they're going to grab on to any little thing that supports their love of Obama, they HAVE to! How would you feel for having to explain the subsequent ruination of America?

ALL BUSH'S FAULT doesn't fly anymore but it's all they've got :-(
