  1. As much as I hate to co-sign on this thinking, I have to. Osama bin Laden has had little (if anything) to do with Al-Qaeda operationally. If anything, he was a cheerleader of sorts. But this won’t do ANYTHING to stop global terrorism. Closure for the 9/11 families, but that’s it.

  2. Well, at least there’s something to cheer about in our country! For what it’s worth, America has never been as united as it was right after 911 regardless of what people think about the possible logistics involved in it! We have been overtly divided since, and this won’t solve that!

  3. Not sure what you’re talking about R2H, but oh well.

    I love how the President’s speech announcing this preempted Celebrity Apprentice. This must’ve been the best weekend ever for Obama. On top of that, he did in three years what that numbnut Bush failed to do in seven. I wonder where Bush left the Mission Accomplished banner? Hahahaha!

  4. Oh, give me a break! If Bush was successful at eliminating Bin Laden, non of you libs would be giving him an ounce of praise. Your hypocrisy is glaring.

  5. Good post, Dre. What concerns me most is the possibility of other “mice” seeking retribution for their fallen leader. I’m not at all celebratory right now.

    • How could liberal hypocrisy be “glaring” when the scenario you paint, “If Bush was successful at eliminating Bin Laden,” is as imaginary as the liberal response you say would follow, “non of you libs would be giving him an ounce of praise.”

      You gotta love Bush for his persistence: He looked every where for Osama. When he couldn’t find him in Tora Bora, or the border region, or the tribal region, or Afghanistan, or Pakistan, he took his search to Iraq where we spent 89 months looking, $708 billion dollars so far, and lost 4,416 American lives.

  6. I have another question for you: why would they bury Bin Laden at sea before showing proof? President Obama just had a nightmare of a time trying to prove his nationality…it’s likely people will question the reality of the event.

  7. Hey Dre,
    “Mowing the lawn.” That my phrase for why we do things that we can’t totally win. Like stopping rape, ending racism, or any other example. I don’t mow my lawn to stop it from existing, I know that somehow, someway, it’ll grow back. I mow it so it won’t become out of control.

    • Pictures would be the best proof, but that kind of proof would cause unintended consequences: It would fire up the Jihadist and possibly provoke general outrage, putting Americans abroad at risk.

      I don’t believe for a moment that Osama bin Laden rests with the fishes. His body is in cold storage somewhere.

      Obama gave compelling evidence that he was born in Hawaii. It was called a certification of live birth. All that followed after that was harassment, and the T(2)Party using outrageous demands to see Obama’s long-form birth certificate to effect a boyification of Obama.

  8. Gotta give a huge congrats to the Obama administration for doing something the previous administration could not/did not. Mission Accomplished! Ha.

  10. As I dreaded, already people of the radical spectrum of politics are trying to make this some slogan: “Its because of Bush, no its because of Obama, etc.” The real credit here goes to the men and women of our armed forces who’s courage and perseverance made this possible. I offer them all a profound thank you and congratulations from the bottom of my heart.

    That said…I do have to give props to both Bush and Obama. As unpleasant as it is, some of the practices Bush put in like, like Guantamo Bay, did play a role in this. And Obama did make the hunt for Bin Laden a priority again after it had been on ice for years because so many resources for it had been diverted to Iraq. So they can both feel happy with themselves this day.

    • Um, excuse me! Wasn’t he the one who wanted to close Guantanamo Bay? Didn’t he want the trials in the US. From what I understand, intelligence was taken from prisoners in G. Bay. When it’s good news he takes the credit. When it’s bad news, he says he inherited it from George Bush. The fact is it was Bush’s toughness and policies which gave the foundation for Obama to take successful action. What president would not have done the same thing. The true heroes are the men and women who are serving in the military. They are too good for their Commander and Chief.

      • Dude that chip on your shoulder is distorting your vision. Your efforts to sanctify Bush and demonize Obama has got you saying all kind of silly sh!t.

        Bush so-called “toughness” and “policies” drew him away from the epicenter of the war, and the destruction of al-Qaeda, and Osama.

        It took the commonsense of Obama to recognize that you fight the enemy where he is, not where you want him to be.
