You are a FReeper, like myself, who works in the private sector or law enforcement/military who is most likely male, with a family and is either Christian or Jewish.
I understand that dollars do not fall off of trees unless you have a rich uncle who dies and leaves you a lot of cash; you work in the mailroom of Microsoft or Google and in the 1990s or you hit six numbers on PowerBall.
The American public craves a hero, even an anti-hero to be larger than life, that’s why the Lefty Media could never slam Reagan, he was a folk hero, in some ways.
We see all the bad stuff, the foreclosures, the near 20% real unemployment, the deficit at $14T, the regulations and growing power of unchecked Socialist government, the illegal invasion, the Muslim push across the globe...
We need a hero, this gives “hope” to all the people who were still second guessing their Obama vote in 2008.
The cement is drying.
Your crack pipe needs a refill.
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.
‘thats why the Lefty Media could never slam Reagan’
Very funny! You certainly have a dry sense of humor!
