Okay, the Obama campaign is in full push to tell Americans over and over that Obama killed Osama a year ago. Seems to be the only thing Obama can talk about right now.
Surely the greatest – and come to think of it, the only – accomplishment of the Obama administration was the killing of Osama bin Laden. And now, on the one year anniversary of the terrorist leader’s execution, Team Obama is doing everything short of carrying Osama’s rotting, bullet-ridden head around on a pike in order to tell people that this bold and dangerous military mission could only have been pulled off by one man.
And of course, that man is…Admiral McRaven.
What – you thought Obama was behind everything? Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! No, no – as the photos from the situation room clearly show, Barry had to be dragged off a golf course the day of the mission so he could be photographed watching a computer monitor in the same room as a lot of grown-ups.

Sitting Out Obama
Victor Davis Hanson
We recently saw lots of sit-down strikes and demonstrations — the various efforts in Wisconsin, the Occupy movements, and student efforts to oppose tuition hikes. None of them mattered much or changed anything. There is a sit-down strike, however, that has paralyzed the country and has been largely ignored by the media.
Most economists since 2009 have been completely wrong in their forecasts, reminding us that their supposedly data-driven discipline is more an art than a science. After all, a great deal of money is invested and spent — or not — based largely on perceptions, hunches, and emotions rather than a 100 percent certainty of profit or loss. And the message Americans are getting is that the Obama administration is hostile to investment and business, and thus should be waited out.
Barack Obama’s original economic team — Austan Goolsbee, Christina Romer, Larry Summers, Peter Orszag — have long fled the administration, and have proved mostly wrong in all their therapies and prognostications of 2009. Despite the stimulus of borrowing over $5 trillion in less than four years, near-zero interest rates, and chronic deficits, the U.S. economy is in the weakest recovery since the Great Depression and mired in the longest streak of continuous unemployment of 8 percent or higher — 38 months — since the 1930s.
Another bitter woman clinging to a dream (or she just loves smoke and mirrors?).
CBS anchor Gayle King, Oprah Winfrey’s longtime friend, told The Daily Caller that people are “forgetting” that President Barack Obama has “done everything” he promised during the 2008 presidential campaign.
“President Obama has done everything that he said he was going to do and I think people keep forgetting that. People keep forgetting. He talked about health care, he talked about Osama bin Laden, he talked about ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ he’s done everything that he said he was going to do,” she said after the White House Correspondents Dinner.
This is our president people!
