Theres been a fair amount of how shall I put it? sucking up to President Barack Obama over the past week for his decision to send in the US Navy SEALs to kill Osama bin Laden. Certainly, it was a bold gamble that paid off richly and if it hadnt it could have crippled his presidency.
But rather than let Obamas actions speak for themselves, his aides and allies have gone into overdrive and gutsy has become the word of the week. As in:
When President Obama was faced with the opportunity to act upon this, the president had to evaluate the strength of that information and then made what I believe was one of the most gutsiest calls of any president in recent memory.

He’s a regular George Patton
If the mission had failed we would have never known.
And at this point I am beginning to believe that obl was long gone from that site if he ever was there.
Obey slept on the decision for 16 HOURS. How hard it was to sleep, play golf and clean the teleprompter before such a decision’.
Taking a chance at glorifying yourself while risking other
peoples lives with no risk to your own and knowing full well
that the media will sidestep any blunder you make. I am in
absolute aw of his bravery.
There is but one American that seems to have benefited from the depraved existence of Usama bin Laden.
Bunch of PR flak to tackle the WIMP FACTOR.
The Kenyan lizard king and his minions are basking in the sun light of the achievement of others. Disgusting.
And the current CIA is Keystone Kops. OBL supposedly hides for five years straight in ISI’s back yard, Pakistan could hardly contain themselves giggling at first the Bush then the Obama admin.
The gutsy part was overriding Valerie Jarrett!
Obama! Praise Be To Him, Oh Great Leader. Everyone, Love Big Brother Obama! Hail Obama! 3 hail victory, Hail Victory, Hail Victory, Hail Victory! Why am I seeing history repeating itself over and over? Rhet.
David Beamer responds:
If he said this then, the “Former US ambassador to Pakistan” is a f-ing MORON or simply one of Obammy’s butt boys.
Ummmmm — Mr. Ambassador; Zero may have pooped his pants when he was watching the vid, but it doesn’t follow that he was ever in any real danger.
