    "Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonalds and
    thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger. It's the guy cooking the
    burger that should get the credit, not the clown."

    Really some specious logic by some of you guys.

    Of course O didn't do the actual killing of OBL. By the same logic that you're using then OBL shouldn't get credit for 911. He wasn't flying the planes. His "soldiers" were.

    You can't logically have it both ways.

    You smoked out our local labor union Democrat supporter...good job, especially this early on a Sunday.


    But seriously...the CIA already had this package put together and wrapped up with a bow, and all Obama had to say was "yes" when it crossed his desk. There is evidence of Bin Laden actually setting plots in motion, organizationally. A little different, Jer.


    So...has Obama got any of those auto jobs back to Michigan yet?

    Oh wait by that logic that means the Bush should get the credit just as I am sure he would have gotten the blame if the op had gone bad.

    Buzz it's too early to go shooting so I needed my morning laugh and TS.com never disappoints.

    I'm not a fan of O but some guys take it to an extreme and would find a way to discredit the guy if he personally jumped out of the helicopter and stabbed OBL in the throat.

    Actually, somewhere in one of his "victory lap" speeches, he said those very words.

    In 2013, look for the movie, "RAMBOBAMA"!

    Here is the difference


    George W. Bush speech after capture of Saddam:


    The success of yesterday's mission is a tribute to our men and women now serving in Iraq . The operation was based on the superb work of intelligence analysts who found the dictator's footprints in a vast country. The operation was carried out with skill and precision by a brave fighting force. Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers in the hunt for members of the fallen regime, and in their effort to bring hope and freedom to the Iraqi people. Their work continues, and so do the risks. Today, on behalf of the nation, I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate 'em.


    Barack Obama speech after killing of bin Laden:


    And so shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda, even as we continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network. Then, last August, after years of painstaking work by our intelligence community, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan . And finally, last week, I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action, and authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad , Pakistan .
