27. Wrong.
Edited on Tue May-31-11 05:17 PM by NYC Liberal
If he was directly involved in an action, he deserves the credit (or the blame). The killing of OBL was a major operation, the planning and execution of which Obama was intimately involved in.

No president can possibly be directly involved in every single decision made throughout the military across the world. You have no evidence Obama was intimately involved in this operation as he was in the OBL mission.

The president is "responsible," yes, but that means he has an obligation to take appropriate action once he is informed not that it is his fault.
