    Would any Republican in his position be doing any differently NP?

    An honest answer would be, "not likely".

    Right....instead you argue that the Seals should say "we did this all ourselves, 100%".

    He largely didn't take credit, however, perhaps a better comparison would be when he ordered a strike on locations where Saddam and top government officials were supposed to be located.

    If the mission had failed, or our SEALs had ben taken captive and paraided on Al Jazeera tv, Obama would have been finished. Utterly finished.

    The final decision was his. It was a very tough call. The reputation of the USA was at stake...as was his Presidency.

    THAT'S why he gets a lot of the credit. Those who take big risks, get to take credit for a job well done.

    Yeah and almost anyone in this country could say take OBL out..They are not out there putting there life on the line.......I don't think any of you anti military people understand how dangerous this mission was..........The Seal team had no clue in what they would run into on the ground......They are the ones that risked their lives not Hussein Obama. Why you lefties don't understand that I will never know..........Its probably your contempt for our brave military and your Love for Hussein Obama that blinds you.

    if the mission had failed somehow, or the SEALs had gotten captured, you would be blaiming Obama 100% for all of it.

    That in itself is an interesting case in who is sane and who is offer their rocker. I can bet that you have some idea of what happened, largely that the State Department, Military and Obama refused to accept the make or break agreement set forth by the Iraqi government that US forces who commit any crime, real or perceived would be tried in Iraqi courts. Obama is getting flak for not agreeing to this agreement. But if he did, anyone with a brain would know that Obama would get HUGE flak for agreeing to remove immunity from US forces. Basically people who attack Obama on the Iraq-US force agreement are giant political hacks with no regard for consistency or honesty who would use either outcome to attack Obama.
    The whole political affair frustrates me. I'm beyond frustrated anymore. Conservatives pretend to be approving of waterboarding because anything else must equate to not supporting Bush or the "War on Terror," or the troop. To this day, most of them can't even bring themselves to recognizing what Rumsfeld was...an enemy of the troop.

    AND NOW flip the coin .....

    Today, Liberals act as if GITMO simply disappeared because a continual criticism must equate to not supporting "Hope & Change." That, somehow, an exponential civilian death toll across the "soveriegn" border of Pakistan via UAVs is no longer something to protest over. But not only are Liberals proving, once again, that they can forsake everything they believe in quite easily when necessary, Conservatives are proving that "Support the Troop" was just Bush's "Hope & Change" ....a calling to the sheep by the shepherd.

    I don't understand people's need to hoist the man on their shoulders. He took no risk by making the right decision (in fact, he barely makes decisions about anything). The risk would have been not allowing the military to do its job and having the entire world find out that he did nothing after they offered him up on a silver platter. There was no gamble. There was no choice. With Clinton being criticized mercilessly for bombing out empty warehouses, Obama merely did the only thing he could. He gave the OK for the military to cross a border and to either succeed or fail. That's it.

    And they would be wrong for it. Obama's failure would be to not persevere through the military failure. Carter did not persevere. He left hostages in Iran for well over a year because he became impotent.
