    I just happened to catch this last night. RM is spot on in her take on this 'evolving story' and maybe it would do everyone well to take a step or two back. Just sayin'.

    Well, not everyone is ready to wait:
    "But one Democratic communications hand sent advice to a slew of other Democratic operatives in the wake of the announcement hammering on the need to make sure Obama comes out on top.

    “In your day jobs, do not let Republicans turn this into continuing the Bush legacy. This has to be about Obama’s decisive leadership,” the guidance said. “He is the one who oversaw bringing bin Laden to justice, much like how Bush failed to do so at Tora Bora and then claimed Osama wasn’t a priority.”

    For Democrats, the argument is critical because they don’t want to let credibility on national security issues slip back into their post-Vietnam home in the Republican Party. And they need to fight the insinuation, fed by recent NATO action in Libya that one official characterized as “leading from behind,” that Obama is a weak leader."

    Sorry, I just can't bring myself to listen to her anymore. I tried again and again, her voice and mannerisms are at best, grating.

    One more reason to watch the RM Show. Still the most informed, thorough and entertaining news show on cable.
    It is unfortunate yet understandable why the willfully ignorant choose to attack her and demean her; congitive dissonance hurts.

    Obama is a weak leader, imo. But not on this. He showed leadership with the decision he made. Maybe it's the start of a trend? Ok, I won't hold my breath.

    A "Chin" ook?

    It's a "SHA" nook.

    But, what do you expect from someone who's only been a fan of the military for a day or two.
