Leadership: If President Obama isn't careful, he might get injured slapping himself on the back for killing Osama bin Laden. Spiking the football in such an obviously political way is conduct unbecoming of a commander in chief.
gjaclThe recent unseemly comments by Obama and his attempt to turn a successful military operation into a campaign stunt show a sad political desperation by our nation's leader.
It's bad enough Obama takes credit for the Navy SEALs' achievement. But this time an Obama campaign video, "One Chance," suggests Mitt Romney wouldn't be man enough to do what Obama did.
Or as the video asks, "Which path would Mitt Romney have taken?" As if there was really any question.
Romney responded to the political cheap shot by urging Obama not to let the killing of bin Laden become a "politically divisive event" sensible, mature advice.
For the record, IBD strongly supported the operation to take out bin Laden. And we gave the president kudos at the time for letting the operation go forward.
But we're troubled as we mark the first anniversary of SEAL Team 6's successful raid against the world's most infamous terrorist. We should be solemnly remembering bin Laden's thousands of victims and showing gratitude to the American men and women still fighting in the Mideast to protect us from future terrorist atrocities not listening to a president's juvenile gloating.
Instead, Obama and his Democratic supporters are taking yet another public victory lap, claiming credit for something the U.S. Navy accomplished
Democrats counter with, well, what about President Bush's "Mission Accomplished" speech in 2003?

Obama abuses everybody and everything for political gain.
Osama Obama took credit for this the day it happened. What did people expect from this illiterate self-congratulating jackass...class? Please. He is a pathological liar and narcissist.
Four more years of Obama or Obama-Lite, either way we are so screwed.....but this is really sickening....I miss POTUS #40.
Since the usurper seized power, not a single day has gone by that he has not totally disgusted me!
Gawd , do I ever wish I could split the country in two....All the Obama voters West of the Mississippi and all the non-Obama voters get the east. It sure would be fun to watch all that “compassion” turn to a pile of $hit without the producers propping it all up.
My sister and I talk about this all the time. We get the east, the nuts get the west and we can all sit back and watch how swell liberal policies are. Gay parades, condom stands on every corner, abortion vans would be as busy as ambulances, welfare for everybody, euthanasia on demand, and drug pimps. Their Utopia.
A person who brags is not a hero. A person who brags is often very insecure.
A braggart is also not a leader
The polished one likes to the use the military because they can’t “boo” him in public. Saves him the trouble of busing in his astroturf ahead of time and he doesn’t have to study any scripted questions.
