What a difference one year makes. Last year I praised President Obama for not wanting to "spike the football" by releasing gruesome death photos of Osama bin Laden. But this year, forget spiking the football. The president is doing an end-zone dance.

Dumb and dumber.
How soon they forgot the Mission Accomplished fiasco.edit on 7-5-2012 by pirhanna because: (no reason given)
The Obama Administration drafted a “highly lawyered” memo to shield the president from blame if the mission to kill or capture Osama Bin Laden failed, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey told Sean Hannity of Fox News Friday
According to Mukasey, the memo would have pinned the blame on Navy Admiral William McRaven, who was commander of Joint Special Operations Command at the time of the raid.

But this thread wasn't about Bush doing it, it was about Obama doing it.
Goose and gander and such.
