BHO vs. OBL - the Fawning

(Triggered by a conversation on a political forum I frequent.)

I am so tired of this Boy President and his coterie of high-priced handjobbers.

"But Smasher," they say, "you have to credit President Obama for making the tough decision to take out OBL in Pakistan - if it'd gone wrong he'd take all the blame, so since it went right he gets a bunch of credit."

I just don't see it that way. Every other foreign policy decision by Obama has either been of the "America sucks" type or the "whatever, stop bothering me" type. Why anyone would imagine this one was the one time where he sweated and worried is beyond me.

And the whole "he took the risk" line is silly too. Every president takes risks with every decision he makes. It's part of the job. Giving the President of the United States credit for allowing the assassination of the man responsible for something like 9/11 is like giving me credit for going to work every day.

The only thing that impresses me (other than the sheer awesomeness of the teams that pinned OBL and shined him) is the fact that Obama took the smart route of dumping the body at sea. My hat is off to him for that, although I rather suspect that the ocean might have some objections on that point.

Smart? Maybe - politics is evil.

But I still think my idea is better: stuff the body with rotting pig entrails, wrap it in rancid pork, drop it at the bottom of an outhouse, and charge $1 admission for people to defecate on his festering corpse.

Military personnel and 9-11 families get in free.

Why go out of our way to offend a particular group?

I don't know.
Would you be offended if that kansas preacher, the one that shows up with his extended family to all those military funerals where he's not invited, were to be drowned in his own urine, then drawn and quartered by islamics or animists?

Personally, I think they should have cut off his head and sent it to Obama in a sample case.

Hey, I already posted my Tough Guy answer the night it happened. In reality the best thing, IMO, is to have disappeared the body and say that we said nice things and forget about it.
