SUMMARY: In a special report on Sen. Barack Obama, referring to Obama's challenges to signatures on his opponents' nominating petitions during his 1996 run for the Illinois state Senate, CNN's Suzanne Malveaux described Obama as "an avid student of Chicago-style politics" and aired remarks by a Chicago reporter calling the practice "cutthroat." But CNN's special on Sen. John McCain made no mention of McCain's reported petition challenges in at least two U.S. Senate races, aired no one labeling McCain "cutthroat" for those challenges, or at any point pronounced McCain an avid student of Arizona-style politics for those challenges

Why do I say this...

Well the white house supposedly took out Osama (conspiracy for another thread)

Intel nymag

Our opinion: a little. Anyone claiming that Osama bin Laden's death will guarantee President Obama's reelection fails to take into account how much time remains until people actually vote. Like George W. Bush after the capture of Saddam Hussein, Obama will probably see a short-term boost in the polls. But eighteen months still stand between now and election day, and the good feelings of bin Laden's death will fade away long before then. As before, the state of the economy and the identity of the Republican nominee (will it be a borderline insane person?) will be the election's most decisive factors. Not to mention that other unpredictable events can intervene and change everything. Another terrorist attack? A huge scandal? The return of Jesus on May 21? It's impossible to know. Still, it's definitely going to be a lot harder for the GOP field to portray Obama as an apologetic, pussyfooting commander-in-chief now, a line of attack that never really made sense (Afghanistan? Pirates? Libya? Drone attacks?) but is even less convincing now that Obama oversaw the war on terror's biggest victory.

The title is from a discussion over what happened...

I said my faith in chicago style politics was restored... (it got me looks)

O-man losing election from the looks of it....

O-man ask "Who do I have to kill to get re-elected"

Marine core private "Well sir, their is always Osama."

And poof after ten years and a huge dip in numbers, the O-man comes through evil overlord style...

I approve, Osama died for the re-election....

All he needs is for a drug lord to be killed in a shootout with the DEA...

I will admit this is truly a beautifully evil development.... I love it

This is a huge event in the 2012 elections....

( a thread here who thinks obama is gonna use osamas death to get re-elected )

This is more a less a ninety day event... the question begets what this will be coupled with...

I really think we might be able to predict policy enactment to capitalize on this event to sway the voters for twenty -twelve

white house crowd - osama announcement

this brings this point of the staging already....

any thoughts on this

As for the threads that state the death may have been faked...

It means the leader of the free world is back in the game... All it takes is a potential threat to his power and he acted

It does not matter if he is a us born citizen

It does not matter if he had acorns help to rigg the election...

What matters is that he leads competently and effectively... That will bam the 2012 elections....

These act against osama also do something else...

The US has restored her street creds with the rest of the world
