    I'd have thought you'd realize that there are more issues than national security...

    How has he managed to keep us safe for 4 Whole years while only being in office for 20 months? Amazing?

    Sure, He got Osama. 1 Good Decision does not make up for poor decision after poor decision. Besides Killing Bid Laden is the Culmination of years of work, much of which would not have even been possible had Obama had his way on issues like Gitmo, and Black sites. You guys want to pin all the Credit on Obama like he is some super hero that is the sole reason we found and killed Osama.

    You can try, but Average Americans wont buy it. Obama gets props for making a tough decision to act, and to send in Commandos, but he does not get sole credit for "getting bin Laden"

    I also give him major props for the shoot to kill Order I assume he issued. I always said if we find him, We can not take him alive. We can not stand for some show trial where he can make his case to the world. We could not chance liberals trying to make us give him a trail. He needed to be put down, Obama understood it, and took care of business.

    If not for him choosing to then dump the body and not show the world conclusive Proof I would call it a home run.

    We should love a guy that is alienating the intellectual elite in Europe?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/06/world/europe/06europe.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all

    Obama’s fickle European fans - PostPartisan - The Washington Post

    Aren't we supposed to hate people that do that? Does that only apply if the last name is Bush?

    What, besides alienating the entire world, am I supposed to admire about Obama's foreign policy?

    These nimwits campaigned on "Bush Kept us Safe!" for what...6, 7 years?

    All of a sudden national security isn't an issue any more.

    Hmmph....

    Interesting that you're embracing the NYT and the "Intellectual Elite in Europe".

    National Security wasnt a huge issue in the last campaign either. At least if you were paying attention.

    And if you hadn't noticed Bush wasnt running in 2008. No one was running a "Bush kept us safe" campaign.

    I'm amazed that you guys can't remember this. I mean it's barely 2 1/2 years ago.

    I don't embrace anybody. I just find it interesting that the same people who pointed out that Bush was a cowboy with a go it alone mentality think Obama is doing a great job when he has exactly the same attitude.

    They think Obama has kept us safe for 4 years, and that he inherited the mess that started 15 months ago. Why do you find anything they remember, or don't remember, amazing?
