    If Bush should get credit for killing Osama bin Laden because he put the policies in put in place that led to killing OBL, then Bush should get credit for screwing up the economy because of the policies he put in place before handing it over to Obama to fix. And Afghanistan and Iraq is still his wars because he put them in place. Now it’s Obama’s screwed up economy and Obama‘s wars but Bush should get credit for getting OBL? Water boarding policy did not lead to killing OBL. If it’s Obama screwed up economy now, then it's Obama who got OBL. If Bush should be given credit, then the manufacture of the bullet that killed OBL should get credit also. Bush did not even want credit. He had 8 years to get him and got lost looking for Saddam who had nothing to do with 9-11. It is just radical right wing nuts who don’t want Obama to get credit.

    Obama got Osama. Bush had nothing to do with it. End of story.

    Obama did NOT get Osama, neither did Bush. Our Military and CIA got him. Obama only approved the attack and nothing else. And why wouldn't he? He knew he would get credit for killing Osama when he didn't do any of the work to find him, he didn't put together the attack, nor did he fire the shot that killed him. The only credit Obama should have is the fact that he approved the attack and nothing else.

    Bottom line is this:

    The economy, and wars, are so complex, and involve so many factors and so many people that neither Bush or Obama should get full credit or blame for either. Hell, they shouldn't even get most or half credit/blame. Both are so much bigger than them.

    However, our nation is full of fucking retards who will lay blame or credit on one man for the events and work of many, over many decades. Hell, we could say Obama getting OBL is thanks to Clinton for not killing him in 1998.

    Modern voters sicken me as much as modern politics. See the upcoming prez debates. The resemle a Jeaopardy set more than a political debate. Buzzers, lighted podiums. Obama is the first "American Idol" president. We judge candidates mostly now by looks, sound, charisma, etc, etc, almost like fucking American Idol the game show.

    Obama won the lottery with OBL. Some prez would get it, and he did.
