President Obama Gets Osama

"I don't care dead or alive...  I don't know if we are going to get him today, tomorrow or a year from now, but we are going to get him!" 

President G.W. Bush said that shortly after the 9-11 attacks.  Years later he would say "Bin Laden isn't important."  When faced with the opportunity to kill or capture bin Laden at Tora Bora, President Bush instead had intelligence and military planning resources transferred to begin planning the next war in Iraq.  This refocus on Iraq and Saddam Hussein allowed Osama bin Laden to escape.  So, President Bush failed to stop the attacks of 9-11, then failed to kill or capture America's #1 enemy.  In fact, President Bush failed in every way you could fail in a War on Terror.

President Obama on the other hand, took the exact opposite course.  Upon arrival into office, the President made the capture of Osama bin Laden the C.I.A.'s number one priority.  These actions led to doing in 2 years what President Bush could not do in 8.  Clearly, no one can now doubt the resolve in our President's stand on defense?

To which, I must now give due respect to one Rush Limbaugh, who said things of our President I would never have imagined possible.  Unabashed praise and even thanks unto God, for him.  Well done, sir.  I hope this event and the corresponding actions of our President give our nation the strength and courage to move forward in a bold fresh manner.  Let us now unite as Americans once again, all striving toward a single cause.

Let the days of strict partisanship be done, and have us usher in the real days of hope and change, leaving behind us the days of Conservative 'government is the problem' type of thinking.  Once America sets it mind to do something, there is nothing that can stop us.  

It would seem that the moment of unity is passing us by, and politics has taken over, as discussion of the 'bin Laden bump' fills the airways.  Some have turned this event into President Obama's re-election guarantee.  

Rather than embrace this event as a 'win' for America, some liberals have decried the event as an assassination and chastised those who have and are celebrating the action.  Our leader made the decision not to bomb the compound that could have been harboring the most wanted man on the planet, and instead chose to send in "Seal Team 6" to end THE terrorist threat against America.  Osama bin Laden is over, and for this all Americans should be thankful, and moreover appreciative to our President Barrack Obama and 'his' decision not to bomb from afar, but to use ground troops to insure there would be no escape for a man plotting daily to harm Americans.

Let there be no doubt, that President Obama is STRONG on defense.
