    In other words, Bush is trying to take credit for getting bin Laden. Laughable...

    It's not an altogether unrealistic assessment.

    As well he should.

    Even Obama gave him credit for his role, and Bush and Cheney have said favorable things about Obama in this regard.

    So I'm not seeing what the problem here is, other than your extreme partisanship.

    Bush did invest a lot of money into improving SPecial Operations groups.

    Bush did invest money in the new version blackhawks with the stealth capability.

    Bush did invest the money in the intelligence aparatus to smoke these guys out.

    I give Obama credit, too. He didn't play to his base of Code Pink Appeasement types who thought that our best approach to terrorism is a profound apology to Muslims for being Christian.

    RIGHT, even though Obama didn't personally develope the intel - his appointed leaders did.

    The Work he did Absolutely made it possible. He Gave Obama the Tools to do the Job. Period. The Very things you guys hate, Enhanced interrogations, Gitmo, the patriot Act these things gave Obama the tools. Bush also reorganized our Intel and Law enforcement agencies to work together instead of against each other. Only a total Partisan Hack would try to deny him his share of the Credit.

    Both Deserve Credit.

    How does Bush deserve credit? In 2005, Bush shut down the CIA’s unit dedicated to finding bin Laden in order to shift resources to Iraq.

    reading for comprehension is your friend.

    phrases like "part of" and "began during", for example.

    life's getting harder for you, isn't it?
