Four More Years!

Obama Announces Killing of Osama bin Laden
The New York Times, May 1, 2011

Go ahead, call me crass and political, I'm happy to oblige -- but here are the facts: Bush's Republican administration could not find bin Laden for nearly eight years, and a loud-mouthed Don Rumsfeld couldn't find bin Laden, but a supposedly-soft-on-the-military Democrat finally got the job done, and did it properly. With this victory, may all the hyper-partisan, conservative Republican nut-jobs be royally screwed at the ballot box for many, many years to come.

Transcript of President Obama's remarks

  1. Before his broadcast but obviously when its substance was already known, I entered a one-sentence posting asking if we could see an end to political gain in human death - knowing, of course, the answer. This posting took no cognizance of yours and was not a reply to it. If it were a political matter, I'd be pleased to see "the gain" distributed pretty much as you propose, here. :) To tell you the truth, though, I do wince to hear "justice has been done" when Bush set this nation on a broad swath of international aggression and domestic repression, ostensibly prompted by the pursuit of this act of justice. That has been one enormous body count, on the principle that justice required a death.

  2. It is something that needed to be done...they will now splinter into 100 different groups and continue their crazed agenda; but it is now common knowledge that we will go after anyone who perpetrates injury to our citizens and go to war with America.
    I am no war-hawk, nor do I adhere to taking any this case, I think that there has to be some exception because these fanatics will only desist once they are dead...same as our home-grown religious fanatics; the only difference being that the pastors or preachers here have not yet asked them to strap bombs on to themselves or fly airplanes into building. But give them time and they will also serve arsenic-lace Kool-Aid.

  3. Beautifully expressed, guys. All of you.
    God, I LOVE people who can think and express themselves articulately & coherently. Thanks.

  4. He took credit for something he campained demonized Bush about. Shame on you Obama!!!!

  5. Hey Codie! You're not just an idiot -- you're a liar! The shame is on you! And you can't even spell, fool.
