#8 Obama has as much responsibility for the killing of OBL as he does for the killing of the Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
If he takes credit for one - he should also take responsibility for the other. After all it was his administration which went ahead with F&F.
(The previous gunrunner under Bush was very limited, operated with the cooperation of the Mexican authorities and was ended).

#9 Audacity of hypocracy? How about Obama with Bill Clinton putting together a 7 minute commercial spiking the ball on Osama's death and claim Mitt Romney would not have done it.
That's right, Bill Clinton. The guy who passed up numerous opportunities to take out Osama before the 9/11 hi-jackings.

15 years later,
"Obama has no issue whatsoever with making decisions and typically it's kill. He's hitting the kill button every time. I have a lot of respect for him for that."
I don't. The purpose of his first term has been to campaign for a second term. He just doesn't want to get blamed for letting the wrong guy go. So everyone dies. Good thing the military gets to pick the targets.

#11 Understandably, the SEALS resent the blatent exploitation of the event. OK, but as the sentiment from them suggests...oh well. And for everyone else... let it go. People appear like absolute twits for criticizing the President on this one. The O-Campaign planned this obvious stick in the eye. And obviously the bait was irresistible. It's one of their classic twofers. Always...always...watch the other hand with these guys.
