The Master of a Masterful Action: An operation like the near flawless execution of one of the world's most heinous humans who occupied, to our chagrin, a place on this planet, is historic. This apprehension and killing of a murderer reminds me of the commando raid against the pirates off the coast of Yemen given at the president’s order. This is yet another example of a brilliant man who occupies the office today. The death of bin laden is BEYOND the former example times a million. The president is the most competent-of-competent commanders-in-chief. He knows EXACTLY what to do, how to do it and has the appropriate experts times 10 to perfect it.
The war against religious fanaticism goes on. But never forget a request by US Marines was made to take the bastard bin laden out in Tora Bora when they had him in their cross-hairs in 2001. It was denied by George W. Bush probably so that the Iraq War could continue. The negating of the order by Bush to get bin laden when they COULD have in Tora Bora in 2001 to me at the time was treason.
So yes, we can all come together BUT I am SURELY glad this was done on President Obama’s watch as I suspected when he was elected, it would be. He directed it and the Navy Seals executed it with PERFECTION.
My criticisms in the past of some policy take a back seat because the president has proven he KNOWS how to implement his YES WE CAN mantra. His administration is about reconciliation and compromise. Criticize him, as I sometimes do, I can also reverse course and laud him for his ability to do what he thinks is right even if it means compromising with, in my opinion, the oft disloyal and all-too-often racist opposition. I do not have to like that yearning for compromise but I can support this president as he has shown today and on countless other occasions that his policy uniting the nation is sharp, it takes precedence and implementing it is arduous but ever-so-necessary.
Kudos, Mr. President. You have my loyalty!
