Well here we go with our stupid people in America. Now they're ticked off that we used the name "Geromino" for Bin Laden. It was a code name. But now they are saying it's inappropriate to use that name for someone so bad. COMON' people. Seriously? We just killed the man who caused bloodshed on probably every continent in this world, but yet we're going to pick an argument over the code name we gave him during the operation. That's just absolutely wonderful. Next time we'll use code name "Madonna".
On another note, I saw this quote this morning as well.... "President Bush had 2,686 days to catch Osama bin Laden. President Obama got that job done in 831 days," said Lawrence O'Donnell," at the start of his 8 p.m. show. "Somehow ... bin Laden got the feeling that he could settle down comfortable in a walled fortress is a Pakistan suburb. But someone -- someone -- was still thinking about bin Laden in a lethal way. ... President Obama would make his biggest national security priority getting Osama bin Laden, and so he did."
OK first off, I did like Bush for my own reasons, but I do agree that he was not the best President we ever had. I will have to say he was much more of a MAN and an honest person that our current Pres. Secondly, the reason Bush had 2,686 days was because we spend probably 2,000 of those days trying to find the STUPID MAN. If this O'Donnell guy would do his research he'd know that Bin Laden did not allow computers or phones around him at any time. Plus he did NOT travel. He stayed put. Heck as far as we knew he could've been here in America (probably staying at the house of the people getting mad about the Geronimo thing). I would like to see how long it would've taken Obama to get Bin Laden if Bush hadn't started the process. I'm also glad Bush isn't going to ground zero at Obama's invite. To me, that would be saying "I couldn't do it, but you could". It would be like admitting failure... which Bush did not.
Now that I'm off the soap box... let's see how many days it takes Obama to get this economy and gas prices back in order. That would be interesting.
