Barack Obama is not the man many Americans thought he was. This sudden realization has transformed American politics.
The sheer audacity of the successful operation against Osama bin Laden has forced Obamas friends and foes alike to reassess what they make of a chief executive who defies easy categorization and reveals less about himself than politicians are typically drawn to do.
Obama is hard to understand because he is many things and not just one thing. He has now proved that he can be bold at an operational level, even as he remains cautious at a philosophical level. His proclivity to gather facts and weigh alternatives does not lead automatically, in the venerable phrase, to the paralysis of analysis. It can also end in daring action tempered by prudence for example, making sure that additional helicopters were available to our Navy SEALs.
The presidents rhetoric has often emphasized caring, compassion and community, the language one expects from a moderately liberal politician. Yet as one of his close aides told me long ago, there is inside a very cool, tough, even hard man. Obama is not reluctant to use American military power.....
...Obamas conceptual complexity means that he rejects the idea that there are just two alternatives: the United States as the worlds sole superpower or an America slinking off into weakness and irrelevance. Binary choices are not for him....

The special ops guys are so fortunate Obama's got their backs. I bet their code name for BO is 'Guardian Angel'. \sarc
Who is nobama?
nobama hates you, hates your children, hates Free America, hates Americans, hates the Constitution and hates the Bill of Rights. nobama is a hate crime foisted upon America. nobama is the Destroyer.
Everything nobama does is intentional.
I sure hope he had a secret deal with the Pakistanis. Otherwise, a guy who has the “audacity” to invade a nuclear power on a military mission, may be demonstrating the wrong kind of verve.
That is the one area he did not know how to seize. He used vinegar (running down the USA) not honey to achieve his goal, it did not work with most.
Living in the Washington area I stopped along time ago reading anything this hack put out.
I like the version on the link you provided. That seems to be based more in reality!
Jeeez. I wonder if he found any polyps up there.
Anybody have a puke meter?
I'd almost bet he was conceived at a drunken orgy somewhere during his mother's doper years.
I’ve always believed EJ was so depressed after the Berlin Wall came down that he blew his brains out at Lenin’s tomb.
This bilge confirms it for me.
That’s what those shovel ready jobs are for, major clean up 2012.
I couldn’t read more than two paragraphs. Either these people are just stupid or they are getting kickbacks from the WH. As we all know now, Valerie Jarrett is the real president.
Didja see where your hero was sitting in the war room? Hint: not quite at the table. Didja hear how he dithered for 16 hours before going along with the courageous raid? Obama is pwned and simple. He’s not any shape of bold and multifaceted.
Wow someone sure is dreaming.This has not changed my attitude of Obama he is still incompetant IMHO. I credit the capture of UBL on the SEALs and our intellegance comittee, Obama had little to do with it. And of course I blame BUSH! ;)
“This sudden realization has transformed American politics”
Sudden Realization? Whiskey Tango...?
Most people with any brains suddenly realized this - years ago. But I hope E J is is right about this (OBL FUBAR) transforming politics. I hope this is the wake-up call America needs to have - so that they know Dear Leader is a lying POS who screwed over what should have been a joyous day for America into a huge cess-pool of doubt, confusion and concern.
Whoever still remains in the Obama voting pool, are voting purely for profit — our profit to their pocket.
Oh cut me a break. The CIA called him up and probably said something like "Sir, if you'll look on page 637 of the status document we gave you at our last meeting, you'll note one of the thousands of leads we've been following in the hunt for OBL. This particular lead seems to have panned out, and we're 90% certain we know where he is. Do we have permission to go in and kill the dude"?
His "operational" duty was pretty much just saying "ok".... which seems to have been about all he could handle given his busy schedule of campaigning and golfing.
