Vindicated? Really? I don't think Bin Laden being killed under another president's watch vindicates his failure of a presidency. Geez, most Republicans have distanced themselves as far as they can from that goon, now we're going to legitimize his worth because Osama was killed...10 years later. No way. That guy was as awful as it gets: that's not really a partisan statement anymore and I can't stand Democrats either. Bush is a turd and this doesn't prove otherwise.

Agree with this premise, however, Bush had 8 years and did nothing, but begin the meltdown of our country. Obama, came in and tried really hard to come off as bi-partisan and bent over at every possible situation to the republicans. Over the past few months his tone has changed and he has 2 years to redeem himself.

So the point I'm trying to make is Bush never learned his lesson, Obama still has time to change things around.

Glad to see Bin Laden is finally dead. ;-D Took far too long and cost far too many lives, but at least that is finished now.

Wat? 8-o

His mandated health care is a perfect example of where the underlined isn't accurate.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

See, that's BS, Aussie. What are you going to do, grandstand Osama in front of the world and just create 100 more Bin Ladens? What is the point of doing that? Does anybody really want a year long tribunal that basically is just a show? I think they did it exactly the way they should have. I say, nice work.
