    To be honest it's a shame that Obama will be getting a boost for this. He's still a terrible president and I pray he loses reelection.

    Like I said in the OP, don't crow about it. Bush got a similar boost when he got Saddam, and we all know that he went from there straight into the toilet. The American people may be behind Obama now, but in 2012 they will be asking "What have you done for me lately?".

    He got the same boost after the congresswoman was shot. That lasted abiout 2 months before he numbers went down the crapper again. I expect the same here.

    What i would say though, is the classic GOP "dems are soft on terrorism" card ain't gonna work this time around.

    But you are highly correct in your assessment.

    That is true. What this does do, however, is take the "Democrats are soft on terrorism" argument away from the Republicans. That is permanently neutralized (and perhaps it has given the issue to the favor of the Dems, since the Republicans talked the talk but failed in the walk) barring a huge terrorism attack in the next 18 months....

    if barack the slasher is suddenly the anti terror titlist, it's mostly because he did NOT dismantle his predecessor's anti terror policies

    I think he missed the line about the best approval numbers in 3 months as well. Also in his own link.

    We have these funny things around bhere called "topics". You can usually tell what they are from thread titles. The thread title of this thread is "President Obama Approval Rating: Boost From Osama Bin Laden Death Likely". How about you actually talk about the topic and not your random link of the day.
