    And I'm going to bet Maddow didn't mention what I did, above, that almost as many non-conservatives gave the same answer.

    It was a Republican-exclusive fault, apparently. I was just amused Maddow went to it for a talking point, because to me, that is also stupid. But hey, I don't like snarky liberals.

    It's all a matter of perspective. If Bush got bin Laden in the same manner, he would have been recrucified for violating the sovereignty of Pakistan. He would have been called a warmonger and a cowboy and a loose cannon. He would have been accused of sitting on his hands for years before finally taking the shot, a day late and a dollar short. Every single person in that compound, bin Laden included, would have been labeled as "murder victims". Bin Laden's death in the event would have been called "sloppy planning," or an "execution mission," no doubt to cover up the truth behind 9/11.

    Did Romney do a damn thing to help get bin Laden? Nope. But neither did Obama. He was in the right place at the right time; it was his job to say "go," and he did. Do we give people trophies for simply showing up to work now? Hey, I didn't go to jail today. Someone pat me on the back. Obama neither planned the operation, nor pulled the trigger. And in that regard, neither did Romney.

    Some Republicans think Romney is "more responsible" for the death of Osama bin Laden

    What does Mitt Romney have to do with killing Osama bin Laden? According to a notable percentage of Ohio Republicans, way more than that good-for-nothing Barack Obama.
    According to a PPP poll of likely Ohio voters, 15 percent of Republicans in Ohio think Romney is ďmore responsibleĒ for bin Ladenís death than Obama, while 47 percent of Republicans are ďnot sureĒ whether Obama or Romney deserves more of the credit.
    Six percent of the overall respondents gave Romney credit where credit is not at all due. Thirty-one percent of them werenít sure whether the president or the candidate deserves more credit.

    Why is the fact that some Libbos made the same mistake, left out of every one of these threads?

Their contempt prevents them from giving their perceived enemy any advocacy and are willing to revise history to that end and/or they think it'll get under that perceived enemy's skin, in this case President Obama and his supporters.

    Not to mention, the information that led to finding UBL was obtained through torutre. If Obama had his way, we wouldn't have even found UBL, in the first place.

    "Had his way"? Well, hell, if I had my way, Obama wouldn't have invested in Solyndra. See how easy that was? Look, I found something in the past we could see was a mistake. I magically appear back in time and fix issue from hindsight!
