Oh joy!

After searching for 10 years without success. After 10 years of bashing the right for "enhanced interrogation". After 10 years of criticism for underground, behind-the-scenes, covert operations that go against the grain of everything that's American. After trusting the Pakistani government only to find that a house with 12-foot-tall cement walls surrounding its perimter, a house 8 times the size of any other house in the neighborhood, a house 100 yards away from the Pakistani Military Academy went unnoticed for FIVE years.

After all that, the current administration did exaxtly as the right had been recommending all that time and succeeded in a mission to (finally) kill bin Laden. All that kicking and screaming. All that preaching and lecturing. All that wasted energy and wasted time. It's as if the correct answer was staring them in the face all that time and they chose to ignore it. Of course, now that it worked, they're happy to take full credit for the entire thing. Well done.

So after all that time of dragging their heels, resisting cooperation, and incessantly criticizing the Republicans, Democrats do exactly what Republicans have been trying to do all this time and surprisingly and mysteriously succeed. Of course, now it's all different because... well... you know... "we're doing it".

To add insult to injury,
"One of the most gutsiest calls of any president in recent memory." This was John Brennan, Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, and Assistant to the President, describing President Obama's decision to launch the raid which resulted in the capture and death of Osama Bin Laden.
How ON EARTH was this a gutsy call? I mean, OBL is was public enemy number one. How ON EARTH is sending a team to kill him gutsy? To me, it's about as "gutsy" as calling the exterminator because you found evidence of termites in your home. Nevertheless, the left control the media and whenever one of their own does anything that's not disastrous, they gleefully slap them on the back and proclaim "well done!".

If you want to piss them off, just drop a turd into their celebration that "all that Gitmo and waterboarding stuff kinda paid off intel-wise, eh?" The myriad of responses is predictable, but the most common is that you are just "stupid".

Absolutely correct, scot. To them, stating the obvious is the antithesis of "understanding complexity" and therefore it's automatically wrong. This might possibly explain their aversion and lack of familiarity with such things as "the truth", "logical reasoning", and "common sense".

Gusty call? Nay. Here's the "gutsy call" the Klown might have made ... tell the Seals to disperse knock-out gas instead of bullets. Then capture him, waterboard some info out of him, and then behead his ass with a hand saw on national TV ... or, force him to jump from the Empire State building so he could enjoy the same feelings as people who had to jump from the World Trade Center ... yes, I like that better ... the sidewalk below would stand testament to the fact that it was a "gutsy" call.

The only gutsy thing about this was the men who performed the deed. I only wish I could have gone along to f**k up his goat and camel turd eating ass.
