    That's a good way to put it.

    I'm just glad Obama didn't play "nice guy" and tell the Pakistanis what we were planning ahead of time. OBL wouldn't have been there when Seal Team 6 arrived.

    The Kurdish north might decide to roll the dice and formally secede from Iraq.

    I am afraid you are probably going to be correct.

    I am being serious here. If anything good happened during Bush's reign, I gave him props. When negative things happened under his watch...you know, 9/11 and so forth, I said he was being held responsible for it since he was sitting in that office.

    You see, I am not a hack. How you doin?
    I will always give credit where credit is due, not saying Obama doesn't deserve the credit, as a matter of fact he does for the order given, what I am saying is the killing was done by seal team 6, in my book and for this they get all the credit. I believe as a leader of the free world, just be careful how we celebrate, killing is nothing to dance about but to breath a sigh of relief would be more proper...just IMO of course.

    I watched fox and if you only looked at them and only read Drudge, right now you all would be depressed because this happened. Somehow this is a negative thing. Wow.

    I was referring to getting our soldiers out of Iraq as the "good news".

    We've already expended a decade's worth of American blood and treasure. Enough is enough.

    had the SEAL team failed and all been captured or killed, Conservatives would be condemning Obama and calling for his impeachment and maybe even his head. but when the mission goes well, they refuse to acknowledge his success.

    ...just like with Iraq.

    This I can agree with you on, such as would our founding fathers.

    If he was killed under Bush, the right would have made him a hero sir. Those same people now say, it really had nothing to do with the president.

    Of course the president of the united states was not on point for a seal team 6 operation. That is absurd. He is however responsible for them and they do work for HIM.
