Winston Churchill lost his re-election bid as Prime Minister in July, 1945, a mere two months after leading his nation to victory in a far more momentous conflict than anything Obama ever will encounter.

In comparison to Churchill, Obama is a stunted historical pygmy. The way the economy is going, in eighteen months, it quite possible that nobody will remember that Obama had anything to do with the demise of Osama bin Ladin.

B. Hussein Obama is quite likely to find out that being President is the ultimate "what have you done for me lately" occupation.

And it couldn't happen to a more deserving fellow.

Oh please. Stow the drama queen horse s#!t. George Bush the elder had a 91% approval rating after the smashing victory in the first Gulf War, and got clobbered by Clinton.

Tonight’s not a night for politics. Let’s drink a toast for everyone involved, from the CINC to the SEAL who put a bullet between bin Ladin’s eyes, and then wake up tomorrow more determined than ever to save our precious jewel of a country from all its enemies.

With a whole year and a half left before the election, don't get too sure.........

But the Amerikan Publik is no longer what they used to be. Maybe you are right. Time will tell.

Meh. Bush I had a 90% approval rating and still lost. You may be right, of course, but we'll see how much of a bump he gets from this.

This was a victory for America, for the victims of 9-11. and for the soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen, who have suffered and even died because of OBL. We should all just celebrate it tonight.

Amen to that. I agree!

This is a MAJOR accomplishment for the USA. Many Americans do not know that before Bin Laden was pegged a terrorist he was most known as a "mysterious" man... almost God like by the people in the Middle-East because of his ability to disappear, hide and always avoid capture. Today America took that away from him. :)

Before we go there, let this natural moment of celebration run its due course and salute the US military victory. President Bush set in motion a significant global response to the 9/11 attack, and it has reached a heroic point this week with a bull’s eye attack delivered by the US Navy Seals. Congratulations America.

Obama’s weaknesses are very clear now. America knows this president drinks a different kind of water.

Or even a month or even a year before. But it does mean that the GOP better get its act together NOW.

The Pakis gave Bin Ladin to Obozo and in exchange Obozo gave the Muzzies a green light to attack Israel , which , very possibly , wil be the beginning of the world war to which you are referring . The US will be attacked from within quickly followed my martial law . Election postponed ...indefinitely .

Wrong. The media will try to keep Obama’s glory alive for as long as they can.. but the American public, weary of wall to wall coverage just like with the BP oil spill, will start to tune out after three weeks. Within a month Obama’s temporary poll bump will disappear and OBL will go back to being what he was until this news broke - a forgotten character. The good thing is it happened 18 months before Nov 2012 instead of a month.

One military victory does not an election make ...

Look what happened to Bush I - he had a 90% approval rating after the first Gulf War and he lost the election based on "It's the Economy Stupid" ...

No doubt, this is a feather in Obama's cap [as it is for Bush II]. It was the military strategy and intel that finally got him. It was only a matter of time - over a period of 10 years ...

But, as said in the movie Patton:

"...For over a thousand years Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of triumph, a tumultuous parade. The conqueror rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. And a slave stood behind the conqueror holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a warning: that all glory is fleeting."

It won’t be long before they start Terrorist attacks in retaliation. Maybe a dirty nuke or some form of Iranian weapon on an American target. It may even happen here in a major city. They have come close several times. Only a matter of time before they succeed.

The sheeple will forget about how much the economy sucks for a little while, but the election is in 18 months. When people are paying 5 bucks a gallon on their summer vacations soon, OBL taking a dirtnap won’t matter quite so much to them.

In any event, the media and lefties can give BO all the praise they want; we know where the credit is truly due. We should celebrate our military’s achievement tonight.

Not for me. Anytime I see coverage of 911 my anger is rekindled.
This is a good day.

But the elections are a long way away.

I am not a troll, nor a Liberal apologist, but I am a realist and I know teens, college kids and young adults (as well as adults) who have NO CLUE about ANYTHING.

If nothing else, this is a reminder for when the pull the lever in 18 months.

I know it’s the economy, but I am rational, the Government will borrow until we have $1,000 lollipops due to inflation, to keep those same morons watching American Idol while munching a BK Whopper.

The American youth and young adult is moronic and simplistic, the best ones are serving in the military now.

The Media will spin this forever as they omit stories and emphasize others...this will be the forefront of the 2012 election, even if its material or not.

The Bush I example is wortheless as the Media never liked him...even though he was a RINO.

Obama bin-Barack will show himself unworthy to lead the country over the next year. Oil prices will rise as Muslim countries cut off supplies to pacify their radical citizens. As Americans suffer economically, they will realize that SOBama was just finishing a job for which President Bush really deserves the credit. If Robert Gates hadn't remained as Defense Secretary, this operation probably wouldn't have happened. We might even have another attack that SOBama mishandles.

In 1989, GHW Bush oversaw the end of the Iron Curtain. In 1990 and 1991, we kicked Iraq out of Kuwait and saw the Soviet Union fall. Even so, a recession much less severe than this one swept Clinton into office.

The GOP can still win in 2012. We just need to remind people that Obama doesn't deserve credit and isn't worthy to lead this country.

It would have happened whether Bin Laden was killed or not. As your second sentence states. This is a victory for America. Bin Laden got what was coming to him.

What I don't understand is why Obama kills Al Qaeda in one part of the world and helps them and their type gain power in Egypt and Libya. Does not make sense.

About an hour ago I went to Afghanistan family run Seven Eleven in my neighborhood and told the guy about the news he was surprised and then laughed with joy. I asked him if he was from Afghanistan and he said "No, I'm from Iran and Bin Laden killed many of my people. He made many bombs and used them against my people."

And he gave me a high five

Obama`s stock has gone way up as a result of the bin Laden kill. Watch for opposition to his policies to drop off markedly. Political capital is a valuable commodity, and the bin Laden kill gives him boatloads of it.

No one but an Obamabot is going to make him the hero of this. This was a win for the military and for all of the US to the average citizen. Obama gets credit, as do countless others. IMO, he shares in the credit for two reasons, he was the CIC and was involved. Secondly, he wisely continued and extended our efforts in Pak with more drone attacks. This is no great feat, as most anyone in the WH would do the same, but he did the right thing. That said, all other issues remaining the same, this is just one small blip of good news from an otherwise disastrous time.

Oh, it will be a much bigger bump than that. But we're not even close to the year 2012. I'm not wishing bad for America but if things continue as they are now, that bump will wear down long before the election.

Calm down FRiend.

Look, tonight I even said to my kid “let’s give Obama some kudos in a good heart, for the one time we will probably ever be able to do that. So let’s do it, in a good heart, because we’re conservatives and that’s what we do, we’re better than them”

And then I told her “no matter about this, vote Republican in 2012”

And she agreed on all points.

It’s good OBL got deaded, and to some extent we must give the big O credit for that (for surely we’d give him blame if OBL was seen lolling on the French Riviera or whatever), but at this point I don’t think it cements his re-election.

I certainly hope and pray not too.

>> Does not make sense.

It does if you consider the incremental attempt to destroy Christianity by the Left, and seize control of their assets.

The properties in the US territories are a big prize for the Left. The Left doesn’t want it destroyed by terrorists. The goal is to take it away from the Jews and Christians that are now in possession.

Egypt and Libya are test cases.
