Where did you hear that? Just curious.

I won't believe it until I hear President Bush say it himself.

Obama is the most self-absorbed person I've ever witnessed, and that would actually take some thought about someone other than himself.

I find that I’m feeling very cynical about this - such convenient timing for Obama.

I feel the same. He knew this one week, ago, also and they knew when they would announce it - tonight and he's dragging his butt.

None of the news drones seem to have caught it...Is it possible that he recorded this a week ago?

That's a very good point. For that matter, he could have recorded it a year ago.

Alas, we may never know now. The mystery will forever remain locked away, just as who really killed JFK and who Barry Soetero really is and where he’s from.

Thank God!

Now, we need to televise his burial in an undisclosed Kansas pig farm. Wrap his body in a rotten pig carcass, aimed 180 degrees away from Mecca, buried buy women who are menstruating, and covered in a ton of pig offal and feces.

Televise it to the world to show muzzies the world over...THIS is what happens to those who attack the United States of America!

The text of President Bush’s statement:

Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done.

If the JACKASS-in-chief and his fellow DUmocrats hadn’t been standing in the way with lawyers in hand to block every effort, we’d have had Obama - um I mean Osama - many years ago.

It is great news and I think President Obama deserves all the respect he gets from this,it is way way overdue given that he is been doing this stuff since at least the first attempt to bomb the WTC.

At least this nation’s got something to celebrate.

I doubt this is a “crushing blow”.

Dude has been sick for a long time and has probably appointed 85 new generals for continuity of Al Qaeda endeavors in anticipation of his impending “natural” demise.

So it got hastened....all(of this) when the shit is about to hit the fan for barry o who is trying to look tough on grime. Now what about the 85 new generals?

Obama-loving ESPN keeps running the announcement at the bottom of the screen. I’m sure all the media will give all the credit to Dear Reader.

This is a moment that President Bush deserved to announce. What a shame that this clown is going to take credit for this.

LOL! Fox keeps showing the “American Street” protesting and shouting “USA!” outside the WH. Obama drones no doubt, which is why they went to the WH to celebrate, but this is will be GREAT TV internationally. American street takes on Arab street. In your face.

Yeah, it’s a weird crowd out there in front of the Whitehouse. All very young people - they couldn’t have too much memory of 9/11 & who Bin Laden is. Strange crowd.

What’s taking Obama so long? W would’ve already given the speech and ordered steak and lobster dinners for the military by now.

I'd give our military heroes a march in Washington. Give them the steak and lobster dinner.

Give them a REAL pension for a DESERVING person for the rest of his life. And if the unions complain they can shove it!

Between all of the cheering, I have a sobering question.

What if Bin Laden had a plan drawn up for a massive retaliatory attack in the event of his capture or assassination ?

Why would he hold off an attack until he was captured or killed, if he could do it any time he wanted?
