    Another classic Turtle strawman... most likely regurgitation from Limbaugh.

    It's a campaign stop. BO wants a photo showing him on equal footing with W celebrating BL's takedown. And I'm sure he'll have the usual snarky BS loaded onto the prompter. Why would W want to sit thru that?

    And I'm not real sure this is appropriate right now anyway. The 10th anniversary is just a few months off. But hey if BO wants to go to Zero, fine.

    You should write news copy for Fox. Nice spin.

    Meh, I'm not sure if Obama "needs" to show himself on equal footing with Dubya. But what do I know, I don't really see this as all that important. I think those who are getting into a "Bush vs. Obama is a better CIC" pissing match need to get a grip.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Like I said, despite what the 'Fair and Balanced' network drills into your head tonight... the facts don't back Cheney up. As usual...

    I would disagree. This was a gutsy decision. The intel they had told them that Usama was probably in the compound. They were following his personal courier and almost 100% sure that this is where he was hiding. It was Obama's decision to go in using a surgical ground team and not an aerial attack from a drone or Jet. This could have easily backfired on him, especially if any of Usama's aides and Pakistani allies had gotten wind of the operation. Just think if the operation had gone south! The right wing would have crucified Obama.

    And you'd be right at home writing for Olbermann. Dayum Hazl! Do you ever put the pom poms down?

    I guess he has brush to clear...

    I say send a Seal team to the ranch, pick W. up, and bring him to Manhattan.
    I don't know if you know this but Bush has said that he is out of politics completely and has no desire to mingle with politicians. He wants Obama to get all the credit and his job was done 2 and half years ago.
