    "President Obama made the right call to give the green light to the mission. But he did it in a way that he could shift the blame if things went wrong. Typical Obama. And typical of him to claim full credit for it, when he didn’t do anything but give a vague nod, while putting his top military officials at risk of taking the hit in case of a bad turn."

    Correct. His order allowed SEAL TEAM 6 to kill bin Laden, and I credit Obama with giving the order to go ahead.

    Let's all be sure to remember this benchmark the next time someone tries to blame Obama for something someone else did.

    I'm sure Obama would be happy to know that you guys are not going to hold him accountable for anything that happens on his watch that he did not actually do himself. That must be a huge load off his shoulders.

    Not since Desert One have those kinds of decisions been given a "vague nod". How you think he could have escaped the same fate as Carter, is beyond me. FAIL!

    Of course, if Bush had gotten OBL, he would have been the epitome of decorum and not gloated at all.

    That's it? Orders a common dolt could give are what we commend our President for? Even when he was prepared to blame another if it was a failure. Okay. You vote for that guy.

    Bush did more than Obama did. But no President really "got" him.
