    This is what Obama said before he became President.

    Sounds kind of like what Bush said in 06', doesn't it?

    Was he telling the truth then or is he now?

    Listen folks. You can't have it both ways. Ether Obama was lying when he said this or he was telling the truth, which means at the time getting UBL wasn't all that important to him.

    Bush won't be afforded the same consideration but Obama gets a pass.

    We're being told by the White House that getting UBL was their number one priority. As is immigration, sealing the BP oil leak, and every other issue that comes up. All of them are described as this Administration's number on priority.

    So get your story straight people. Maybe if the truth started seeping in you'd stop pounding your chests like a bunch of Chicken hawks.

    He just changed his mind...like he did on everything else he campaigned on! But it's ok cause it's obama - so we don't have to worry about this stuff, he'll take care of everything (sarcasm off).

    Its all about getting the votes.

    He said this before he became president because that is what the voters wanted to hear. They wanted something other then bush.

    Now he is lagging a bit. Did killing him boost him up or put him down?

    Timing is everything in politics. Bait and switch is nothing new.




    That being said i am very happy and give him all credit for ordereding the kill shot.

    You ever give consideration to the possibility that Obama's opinions on a few things simply changed once he was in the Oval and had access to more intel?

    Look, I don't agree with Obama on much, but credit where credit is due. And "the mean old liberals don't give Bush credit " isn't valid. Who cares what they give or don't give?

    I'm glad he changed his mind, he did say in the article though that his preference would be to capture or kill him though.

    He was ready to lawyer up UBL, so I doubt he ordered "The Kill Shot".

    In the debate with McSame, Candidate Obama said that if had actionable intelligence as to the whereabouts of Bin Laden and that if Pakistan was unwilling or unable to take action against bin laden, he (Obama) would "take the necessary action". Which is exactly what he did.

    This just another repug bitching because the shrub gave up on bin laden. Disbanded the group that was looking for bin laden and "I just don't think about him that much" as georgie said.

    Obama did exactly what he said he would do, that just plain burns the asses of ConJobs, Repugs and Teabaggers everywhere.

    He was already elected when he said that. That's what president-elect means.

    :lol:
