By now everyone has heard the news that Osama Bin Laden was shot and killed by U.S. Navy Seals in a covert operation. The nation’s “Public Enemy #1” is dead and it has been reported that a respectful Muslim burial took place at sea.I’m posting to give kudos to President Obama. Why? Because if anything at all had gone wrong then he would have all of the blame laid at his feet so I think that as Commander in Chief a little credit is due…not that you would know it based on commentary coming from the right. Based on what I’m reading, I’m sure some dusty-arse confederate is going to ask for a long-form death certificate any day now.
It has been sad — but not surprising — to see that the Republicans have been giving credit to former President Bush for ‘laying the groundwork’ — which is kinda funny given that Mr. Bush said Bin Laden wasn’t a priority and Iraq, which had nothing to do with the events of 9/11, was a more important target.
When will THIS President ever get any credit at all? Well, even if he doesn’t get credit, I hope he knows that there are still some of us who, even if we don’t agree with everything he’s ever said and done, understand that he’s working in incredibly tough times and under thoroughly difficult circumstances.
Some of us like knowing that there are still men out there who aren’t all about talk — keeping quiet but doing what needs to be done works quite well.
