Light of new day will be when this small minded little man is out of office. Trying to exploit the work of the Seal Team 6 for political gain - what a shameful little man. Even the Seals are telling him to knock it off and stop trying to pretend that the killing of Bin Laden was somehow his plan. Any president would have killed Bin Laden if the Seals called and said we know where he is and we can get the job done. OBama is such a political weenie.

The celebrity president scored big points today spiking the ball on Afghan soil on the anniversary of OBL's eradication, crowing about how he was ending the second of those ugly Bush wars, cruising the stage at Bagram in an open white shirt with sleeves rolled-up...such a smooth commander-in-chief. He just might re-up.

Presendent Obama is an amazing Commander in Chief! Our country is out of the sensless war in Irac and our Presedent is working towards the end of the costly war in Afhganistan. Obama didn't plan the Navy Seals assult on Bin Laden but is was his final courageous decision to move forward on the assault. If it had gone bad you would have pointed your finger and said it was all his fault.
You who call your self Partiot, you are hardly that!

Patriot---spin it any way you want to. He got him. Your guy said he would, and he even donned a flight suit and made a Hollywood scripted landing to announce Mission Accomplished. Then he said it didn't matter that much to him if he got him or not. Then a bunch of years went by. Then Barak Obama said that if elected, he would defy Pakistan and nail Osama bin Laden if he got the chance.
And then he did it.
And the history books will record it.
And nothing you say will change it.
Congrats to President Obama, Robert Gates, Admiral Mullen (ended don't ask don't tell) the US Armed Forces and the Navy Seals. You made May Day even more special and you deserve to take every bit of credit.
Hope all had a great and pleasant May Day--watching Occupy Wall Street and President Obama shaking hands with the troops made me proud to be an American. Again.

You're giving BO credit for ending the war in Iraq? REALLY!?!?!?!?

What won the war in Iraq? The surge.

Did BO support the surge when in the senate? NO. no credit to BO

Who set the timetable with the Iraqis for the end of our involvement there? Bush

What was BO doing as the bush-set deadline approached? He was negotiating to EXTEND our stay there.

No, BO does not deserve credit for getting us out of Iraq, not when he opposed teh winning strategy and was negotiating for us to stay longer

OBL? even Carter would have given the order.
