      He did a good job on OBL making the call to have boots on the ground, but he won't get my vote in 2012 unless things get better in this country. And there is no indication that his policies are making anything better.
      On the OBL issue, we need the press to explore the real questions now – who owned that house? who owned the land the house was/is on? Who built the house and where did the money come from to build it?

      Yes we can what? Our international policies are hurting, heck, we can't name 3 countries that would come to our support if we needed them. Our borders are still not secured. Our economy is hurting. Food and gas prices are going through the roof. We have more people out of work now than at any time during any past administration. And, the country is broke and getting deeper in debt. These trends are not good.
      If you blame Bush after 2.5 years it just shows how much of a leader BO isn't. If you do blame Bush do we blame BO 2.5 years into the next administration, after BO is voted out, if things remain the same?
      What would any company do if the CEO had no positive impact on a company 2.5 years into their job?

    If OBL was in Pakistan why did Barry send 100,000 + troops to Afghanistan?

        You are doing exactly what I would expect a Liberal to do, call someone a name, show hate, no facts to counter my opinion, just good old Liberal hate.

    Jay, because that's where your 'President' Bush's people first told him Bin Laden was! LOL! That's really where he was for a long time, according to Bush's people, but Bush said 'nay', so they let him go! Bush's people had bigger fish to fry in IRAQ.. LOL! So I imagine Bush's people thought he was still sitting in Afghanistan, and the man had moved on! That's exactly why I think this action was taken as a result of fresh, new intelligence drawn under the Obama administration, with a few Bush carryovers!

      So Liz, you obviously never supported Bush, but somehow people like you expect people to follow BO blindly? What do you think of the Dems, who are now praising the Seal Team, once calling them Chaeny's killers?

    @John; Cheney Killers? When it comes to our US NAVY SEALS and our military SPECIAL FORCES TEAMS, I'm a proud liberal AMERICAN! I've always honored and supported our military period; no matter who was in the WHITEHOUSE! Whether it's Republican or Democrat! My comments stem from another poster who immediately jumped out to tell me that OBAMA didn't have a thing to do with it!? That those were BUSH'S people, he shouldn't be afforded any credit. There's a deep storyline here and much of it is on other threads.

    Well, that's nothing new! For years we haven't been able to name 3 countries to come to our support if we needed them. We have carried on like the Big Dog of the world so, until nobody ever expects to have to come and support us! We want to be the supporters, the leader, the righteous and moral standards example to the world. That view of America to the world did not just start with Obama! Obama has been working hard to try to change that view, but the DEVIL keeps popping his head in with trick after trick!

    The failed 'right' always jumps up to build a claim glory and accolades when an issue resolution or an event can be claimed as plus or a good thing for AMERICA. But when it's a problematic, negative or bad thing; example: the empty bank account they left OBAMA and AMERICA, they don't want to claim that credit! Even when a suggestion or idea has been picked apart, critiqued, soured-down, radically and systemically dismissed by the RIGHT, and turns out a positive even to a small degree, they want that glory!

    Jay, what hate? My answer to your question falls directly under your question. What hate? You deal only in 'facts' don't you? So when someone voices a truth, you call it hate. What name calling? Who did I call names? I only told you the truth! They did think he was still in or around AFGHANISTAN! That was according to most of the cablenews media. Your typical conservative responses of denial to the truth, is also expected by us liberals! Your conservative media pundits and contributors have gone berserk!

  11. OBAMA get rid of OSAMA

    If you think OBAMA is soft on terrorists,
    you will see a pig flying in the sky.

  12. OBAMA get rid of OSAMA

    OBAMA is tougher than Bush when it comes to terrorists.
    Bush said, "I did not care about going after Bin Lauden."

    @Obama get rid of Osama; You know why they're running around like chickens with their heads cut off don't you? After they saw that there was being a some controversy about giving Bush some if not all the credit for OBL's assassination, they started up the new conspiracy that he was killed 'illegally'! Ooooh, the UN is going to get OBAMA for illegally killing the terrorist without the authority of the UN. Oh, OK! Well now, So Bush DID go into IRAQ to kill HUSSEIN under UN authority? Right? PLEASE! Racism!!

      United Nations Security Council Resolution 678 gave the US the authority to invade Iraq. President Bush did not kill Hussein. He was captured December 2003, tried in 2005 for crimes committed against residents of Dujail and executed by the Iraq government on Dec. 2006.
