I've wanted to make this piece for a couple of years now. The situation in Ukraine has finally put me over the edge.
I can't wait to have a president that gives a damn about using American power abroad to shut down the bad guys again. My fear is by the time we get that person it will be too late...
Liberals who see this will say, "sniff, but what about bin Laden?" What about him?
Everyone reading this post should give themselves credit because the decision to take him out is a no-brainer (which is why even Democrats could handle it).
The real sticking point is Obama's Administration wasn't the author of the policy that finally ended bin Laden, it was Bush's Administration.
We need a real President, not a petulant boy.
Running is OK depending on the direction, i.e. so long as it isn’t being used synonymously with “fleeing”, which has only one meaning.
IIRC, the *real* POTUS - Valerie Jarrett - nixed the OBL raid twice before finally realizing the 'optics' of not acting would have bled over into the 2012 campaign. After all, everything these Chicago thug bastards do is political.
‘Peace through strength’ was never in O’bummers vocabulary. This cowardly leader may lead us to war as world leaders loose respect for him and this country.
Thank you for this thoughtful article.
The movie “War and Peace” poses the question: “Does History make the Man, or does Man Make the History?”
Below is a posting made earlier on another FR thread that explores this question. Enjoy.

This quote from an article, listed below, by Dr. Larry J. Sabato illustrates that he is well suited to be a writer for Politico, the Magazine for shallow, left-wing, low information voters.
These writers pass themselves off as the intelligentsia of the 47 % who pay no Personal Federal Income Taxes.
IOW, they make a living as long as we keep on giving.
Larry J. makes a living by spading around in the surface layers that are rich in the manure of the words and antics of those who are in politics for the fun of it:
* Mrs. Bill Benghazi Clinton;
* Joe Chains Biden;
* John Catchup Kerry;
* John Benghazi Coverup Boehner;
* Harry Do Nothing Reid;
* Son-of-a-Mitch McConnell; and
* All loyal Obamacrat RINOs and Democrats.
It can never get to shallow for the manure-diggers and their megaphone employers at Politico, New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, LA Times, Huff-Puff Post, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, and, of course, the Clinton News Network, CNN.
What Larry J. ignores is what is interesting. Listed below are a few topics as follows:
* Whereas Larry J. is a true believer in the school of thought that The Man Makes the History, the opposite is less easy to prove, but has many adherents, including yours truly.
* Larry J. gives the impression, IMHO of course, that an understanding of basic motivation factors are not necessary to predict election success or failure.
For example, Larry J. mentions decades of partisan polarization, and smoke and mirror budgets, but does not dig deeper through that shallow political manure layer to opine on the root causes of polarization and economic deception that motivate voters at a basic level.
Note: Here I make the assumption that one basic motivation factor for voters is that they always vote their pocketbook.
Ponder these questions:
* What if our polarization was directly related to the numerical value our total National Poverty Debt?
* Has our failure to punish politicians who have not been good stewards of our tax dollars done the following:
** weakened our desire to enforce the US Constitution;
** decreased our belief in making a profit by honest hard work; and
** acceptance of the permissive boys-will-be-boys attitude toward the politicians that we pay to Regulate us?
* Are we, the voters, the root cause of the political tyranny that now controls everything we do?
IOW, have we created the optimum conditions for us to become victims of tyranny?
It is always easy to point the finger of blame towards others, but notice how many fingers are pointing back at you - - - .
‘America’s colors never run, that’s important to remember as these colors do...”
Then he made sure those conditions were met and the operation started before Obama was called in off the golf course to tell him what was going on.
Even then I think he would have stopped it if it was not already in progress. But I feel 100% certain he left himself an ‘out’ in case the mission went bad, so he could blame others for acting on their own.
So far, he has been extremely lucky that he has not caused any major disasters, like that would have been.
Bad people are attracted to weakness... Ever notice how street gangs move toward the person walking alone? We're somewhat blessed by Obama NOT showing the extent of his weakness in the first four years. The world's thugs can count - they know Obama's a short timer...
As I recall, and to his credit, President Dubya never sought to steal honor from our men and women in uniform; and, he was always careful to praise their work, and their mission, and their accomplishments, and he took losses personally.
President Bush respected Americans in uniform.
Democrats use Americans in uniform as props and d!ck them around every chance they get.
