"Michael Hirsch writes today in the National Journal, President Obama was sucessful in catching Bin Laden precisely because he broke with Bush’s terror policies. The conservative “assessment couldn’t be further from the truth,” Hirsch writes. “Behind Obama’s takedown of the Qaida leader this week lies a profound discontinuity between administrations — a major strategic shift in how to deal with terrorists,” from Bush’s bombastic and overly expansive “war on terror,” to Obama’s “covert, laserlike focus on al-Qaida and its spawn.”
h/t THINK PROGRESS
"By removing Osama bin Laden, President Obama has accomplished what Bush couldn't do in two terms, no matter what he promised. So why is it still so difficult for the right to give him respect and credit?
The president should not have to prove anything to anyone. Yet, he has handled every unmerited insult with nothing but grace and class. He has risen above every act of insolence, and proved them all wrong. There is, as CBS' 'Face the Nation' host Bob Schieffer described, 'an ugly strain of racism that's running through this whole thing.' "
Meanwhile, the Repubs are pooping green bricks over Mr. Obama's success in getting bin Laden. They can't deal with it! LOL! Go read some of their pathetic blogs where they're twisting themselves into Bushian pretzels trying to discredit or lie about what President Obama and his team pulled off.
History is on Mr. Obama's side, not theirs.
