shot in the head
I'm not sure why Obama called former Presidents Bush and Clinton about the demise of Osama bin Laden, since Clinton's inaction was the reason al Qaeda struck America on 9/11.
Nevertheless, bin Laden's death is a good thing. But I'm skeptical of the news, and the timing of the announcement. I'm also skeptical of the 'impromptu' celebrations outside the White House, complete with brand spanking new American flags and Obama 'hope and change' signs.
You'll also excuse me if I find it at all strange that this news came right in the middle of 'Celebrity Apprentice' - I know it sounds crazy, but in the wake of Obama's extreme attention on Donald Trump last night (see earlier posts) it shouldn't come as a surprise that Barack is obsessed with The Donald.
Of course, NPR has a lot to say. Mostly quoting strong Republican leaders instead of weak Democrats.
Finally, it's important to say, as a harsh Obama critic, to the extent the President took more aggressive measures - drones and a better working relationship with Pakistan - I applaud him. Osama's death, if true, is a good thing, no matter how you slice it.
