    Well the guys from SEAL TEAM 6 would probably be dead.........At least Hussein Obama would be safe and sound in the White House wouldn't he.....

    And to answer your OP, he is doing exactly what every president does, taking credit for successes of his administration.

    notice i said 'some'...read for comprehension my friend...very proud of our seals ....no kidding navy, they carried out a dangerous mission, and could have died....thankfully, that didnt happen, and the mission was a great success...God bless our men and women in uniform...they stand ready to do great violence so that we may sleep at night.

    yes he did. He made a speech following his capture(minus the juvenile namecalling), explaining how great it was.

    Hey Navy Pride...or more appropriately Voice of Reason,

    If you're so angry about Obama politicizing terrorism, why did you say absolutely nothing on Whistlestopper when Cheney said that if Kerry was elected, we'd see a successful terrorist attack?

    Obama's pulling the same **** the GOP did when it comes to terrorism. It's just you have a problem when the tactic you love to hit Democrats on is used against you.

    I voted no.If he was trying to make it seem as though it was he was solely responsible for taking out Bin Laden then you might have a point, he did not do that. Asking if the worlds biggest flip flopper would have ordered Bin Laden's death if that flip flopper was president is not taking too much credit. Its a legitimate question. I realize that you are such a die hard party tard that you think Romney ****s Gold you still have to remember that he is a bigger flip flopper than blue falcon/buddy ****er John Kerry. Romney flip flops so much his nick name should be Flipper.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The order to capture Osama Bin Laden was actually given after the 93 WTC bombing. Obama only gets a share because of circumstance. Regardless, 100% of the credit should go to CIA Director Panetta, and JSOC, which includes the nameless members who preformed the operation. Obama was simply at the right place at the right time. Doesn't even merit an honorable mention in my book.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    and you are most certainly entitled to your opinion, but unless Obama gives the go ahead, nothing happens...the seals don't go in without authorization , and that authorization comes from Obama.

    I bet those who claim that Obama does not deserve any credit will give all the credit to Bush if Osama was captured during his tenure.

    I missed the part where Obama flew a jet fighter to an aircraft carrier and put up a banner "Mission Complete".
