First of all...it is about damned time.

Query? How will this affect the US now? How will this affect the political climate?

Far better, actually. We are no longer in danger of the collapse of our economic system.

And since I answered your question, the polite thing to do is to answer mine, eh?

.What a disgrace Obama is. Every time you pull the curtain back, there is some kind of deception and double talk. They release photos showing them watching the mission, it is assumed. Turns out they were just posing, it was all B.S.

Obama "directed" them to take out Bin Laden.

Where are you getting the info that the photos were "posed."?

Yes, Obama "directed" them to take out bin Laden. That's his job as Commander in Chief. I don't know about the 16 hours claim, but if it took him 16 hours to decide, that's fine with me. After all, he was sending our guys into grave danger into a country where we weren't supposed to be, possibly starting another war. Oh heck, yeah, I want a president who thinks things through and takes the lives of our men very seriously. Pretty sad that some are so invested in hating this president and criticizing absolutely everything he does that they cannot see any wisdom in contemplating all options and recognizing the deadly seriousness of those decisions, particularly when there were no signs that anyone was getting ready to leave the compound.

The health care law has been declared unconstitutional by some judges and constitutional by others (more for than against, by the way). LOL at the "marxism" claim...maybe look that up.

About those 9/11 ceremonies...Bush didn't go in 2003, choosing instead to go to Walter Reed to visit wounded soldiers. In 2004, live broadcast from the Oval Office, no visit anywhere. In 2005, nothing. In 2006, Bush showed up (8 weeks before midterm elections...could it have been political?). Obama last year and the year before went to the Pentagon for ceremonies. Where in the world do you get the idea that Obama doesn't support the military?

As to torture, it doesn't appear that torture produced the information you claim it did that led to the capture of bin Laden.

I wonder how you'll feel when Obama is reelected for a second term.

Typical of what one sees from the right. Dodge and evade questions.

Hey anthony... for 30 years, the right has claimed Carter was at fault for the copters crashing in the Iranian desert on the hostage rescue attempt. Now... you all claim Obama does not get credit for a successful operation.

Which is it going to be eh? You can't have it both ways.

We had no reason to go into iraq but I'm sure cheney and halliburton did.

I've never heard that. Perhaps he was blamed for not having adequate back ups? Well, he was the worst, until now.

I give Obama credit for saying "okay"... 16 hours later, but he eventually got around to it.
