Truth is....

Osama is green with envy for the damage Obama has done to America. Beyond his wildest dreams. Also, its still work in process, Obama is not finished his path of destruction.

All done without a single shot being fired!

IMO

So, what, the Chron is now emulating Fox News? WTF?

Change the headline, fools.

Nice screwup on the headline. This is why the news media has no credibility. If you guys aren’t serious, I’m out.

I get the two confused all the time. And then I remember, Obama is a greater threat to this country than Osama.

Their pleas are falling on deaf ears (so far).
It’s still Obama on the paper’s front page.

It’s okay, it was only the San Francisco Comical that published it. Their circulation is about 20,000 moonbats and 100,000 canaries, last time I looked.

As has been said before, they both, 0bama and 0sama, have friends who made terror strikes on the Pentagon.

The difference is Osama attacks us with his money and tells us he hates us. Obama attacks us with our own money and tells us it's good for us.
