To all you Freeper Trolls -
GET OVER IT!

When the history books are written on the death of Osama bin Laden it will be OBAMA's NAME not George W Bush's name that
will be in the section on how OBL was finally captured and killed.

19. Poster boy for sure, even before the Iraq War.


If Gore had been inaugurated, as he should have been, 9/11 would have been foiled. It never even would have happened.

Do you think W would give anyone credit besides himself? If so, you must have been asleep the first 8 years of the millennium.

Katrina in New Orleans to "Doing a heck of a job Brownie".

Gosh, never thought I would be sticking up for *.

23. And that, jillian, is exactly right
The intel came in August of last year. All of the planning, the simulations, the set-up, and the op itself occurred under President Barack Obama, his Administration, and military personnel assigned by them. A lot of people are, indeed, to be credited with eliminating bin Laden. But Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Wolfowitz/Tenet? Uh-uh.

16. McRaven deserves credit too, but Obama focused the CIA and military on Bin Laden in 2009
"On June 2, 2009, just over four months into his presidency, Obama had signed a memo to CIA Director Leon Panetta stating in order to ensure that we have expanded every effort, I direct you to provide me within 30 days a detailed operation plan for locating and bringing to justice bin Laden."

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0511/54093.html

That's far different than Bush's policy of shutting down the hunt due to indifference.

(2006) - C.I.A. Closes Unit Focused on Capture of bin Laden

15. The best part is they believe Bush had nothing to do with 9/11 and everything to do with catching
Bin Laden.

6. The Booooosh Shameful Legacy...
A totally failed "presidency" along the lines of Hoover.

Under his watch:

9/11...worst attack on U.S. soil with warnings ignored
Iraq Invasion...war based on lies that turned into a bloody and expensive "non-decision" and made Iran a major player in the region.
Afghanistan Invasion...went from going after terrorists to serving as Karzai's police force and dragged into a civil war...another Vietnam
The Economic Collapses of 2001 (Dot Com bust...Enron implosion)...Sorry 9/11 didn't do it...and then again in 2007-08 that put the US economy on the verge of total meltdown
Abramoff and other scandals that solidified that regime's reputation of being totally corrupt
Plamegate...the outting of a valuable CIA agent to protect Cheney's ass and then the corruption of the Justice Department to cover-up that regime's lies and crimes.

These aren't opinions...they are what objective historians will write about the boooosh years and the utter incomptence and criminality. I never thought someone would make Nixon and Raygun look good...that regime did...and we're still paying for the lies and criminality.

8. Jagoffs want Bush to share credit, if not deserves most from what I've read
Edited on Thu May-05-11 09:19 AM by Urban Prairie
on rightwing sites, but of course the economy is all on Obama's watch. But should it improve significantly prior to the '12 elections, again, it would of been due to Bush's "tax-cuts" and a Rethug-majority House. The start of the recession in 12/07 was entirely the fault of a Dem-majority Congress, whenever the subject is brought up, despite the fact that Bush and the Rethugs filibustered and vetoed virtually every piece of legislation that was introduced.

Most, if not all the credit goes to Rethugs, but never the blame..hypocrite sociopathic scumbags, the lot of 'em.

9. Maybe...maybe not. They're writing all out school books in TEXAS now.
Obama will wind up being a footnote if the GOP has its way.

There are others that don't want Obama to succeed at anything ever. You see that here often.

Set back their loony anti-Democratic agenda a tad, methinks.

20. Exactly correct.
Texas history books will be filled with nonsense of every sort or they won't even merit consideration.

Just as their science books will point out that Evolution is 'just a theory'.

21. To use a baseball analogy, since W. and his ilk might understand that -
For two seasons, Player A, we'll call him George W. Bush played shortstop for his team and had an astronomical salary. Big things were expected of him. After a quick start in 2001, he turned into an error machine, booting the easiest of plays and costing his team plenty of games. He was even worse at the plate, going 0 for 4 in just about every game, but still some people thought he was going to turn the corner.

Finally, when his contract expired, the team signed a new shortstop, Player B, who we will call Barack Obama. Big things were also expected of him, and he's had his ups and downs in the field and at the plate. But during the World Series, he did exactly what he was hired to do and performed exceptionally well, getting a key home run with bases loaded and didn't cost his team any runs in the field.

Should Player A get any of the credit for the actions of Player B, just because he occupied that same position a few years before Player B came to the team?

30. Amen.
History will also note the 9/11 attacks happened under BUSH's watch after he ignored warnings about it, then attacked a country that had NOTHING to do with 9/11 and therefore was never able to capture bin Laden(not that he wanted to, anyway).

Freepers and other Obama haters will just have to DEAL WITH IT.
