Osama Bin Laden Is Dead

... and Donald Trump wants to see the body for confirmation.

"It took President Obama two years to do what President Bush could not do in eight."
I posted that as a status on my Facebook page and while most people liked it and agreed, I received a negative comment or two on how it was a classless thing to say and (I love this one) got this bit of nonsense:
R u actually serious??? I'm sorry, did you loose [sic] a loved one on 911? Or have a loved [sic] missing that day? I DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So HMMMHMMM..............The Marines caught and killed him...Think we should put his head on a stick and parade him around the streets like they did to sooo many of our soldiers! Quite obvious you NEVER served in the militarty [sic] and not reall [sic] sure you even care about this country!!!!!!
To which I thought... "What the fuck?" What does my statement have anything to do with the military? The military did and continues to do an outstanding job. So did the CIA. Yeah, a special operation took him out. An operation approved by President Obama.

But here's the thing: right wingers have been conditioned and brainwashed to the point that they can't, they refuse to give our President credit for anything. I might remind everyone that it was our previous president who said of Bin Laden "And there's an old poster out West I recall, that said, 'Wanted, Dead or Alive.'" and only took six months before the same man said "I just don't spend that much time on [Osama Bin Laden]."

Our current president on the other hand, makes it a priority for the CIA to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden on his first day in office and you get morons like Fox News Business' Eric Bolling tweeting that if anyone should be thanked for the results, it should be George W. Bush. This on the 8th anniversary of the "Mission Accomplished" fiasco.

We've been hearing for over two years about how our President is a secret Muslim, Kenyan born, Manchurian candidate socialist Marxist communist. And now that the world's Enemy No. One is taken out by this administration, I get pushback for being partisan? Or better yet, some nitwit says they're not sure I "care about this country" with a sticky exclamation point key on their computer?! Fuck, yeah I'm being partisan. I'm being partisan because I'm sick of the Dick Cheney calling Democrats weak on defense, blaming Obama for "dithering in Afghanistan" when his administration walked away from it. I'm disgusted by Liz Cheney saying Obama finds it fashionable to side with terrorists. I'm tired of Rudy 9/11 Giuliani and his smug fucking face telling anyone who'll listen that Obama is weak because of our role in the Libyan conflict while NATO strikes attempt to take out Gaddafi.

President Obama weak? Somali pirates. Gaddafi bombed. And now Osama Bin Fucking Laden is killed. So yeah, I'm being partisan. So what? I'm proud of our President and everyone should be at this particular moment. I'm feeling pretty good right about now. And if you want to call me an Obot and mock about "poking a hole in my Obama" bubble, go right ahead. You can't do it because the bottom line is the guy I voted for got it done and continues to get it done and the guy you voted for didn't. He failed. We all know it and you'll have to live with it.

And if you believe in God, then God bless America and God bless President Obama.
