    Wow, what a slap in the face to the intelligence gatherers and the Navy SEALs that did the ACTUAL work. All he said was "yes". That's not leadership.
    And furthermore, he's blind if he thinks extending a hand to the middle east, in a convoluted "do-over", would help. This administration has had MAJOR flubs, especially when he stabbed Israel in the back by "whispering" to Sarkozy about "having to deal" with Israel. He's gone on to snub the UK and Canada in favor of four more years in the White House. And these people are our ONLY friends. I hope people take off their blinders and realize this administration is a COMPLETE failure and doesn't deserve another term.

      You can't be serious! Get beyond the Faux Noise bumper sticker posts for just a moment.

      This adminstration (Pres. Obama) IS LEADING! Do you think after the greatest attack on this country in the history of this great nation, warrants a president (Dubya) saying "....I don't know where OBL is and I don't care"....What is that? We are supposed to think that was leading? OBL was living in plain site, in a mansion no less. And our bravest and finest soldiers are chasing around in the desert for this guy? (getting shot up and blown up)....and you have the tamerity to say this president is a failure?

      Your thinking flies in the face of all sensibility. But some people can't look at facts objectively...I guess that's your homeroom

      Think about this....remember the Debate between candidates McCain and Obama. Obama says; if we have intel that shows there OBL is in Pakistan and that government refuses to get him, we will go in and kill him....I'm paraphrasing of course ...BUT THAT'S LEADERSHIP ! you should look up that word in the dictionary before blowing out a silly post.

      As the reporter says in the video, just as the president inherits responsibility for the bad economy, he also inherits the achievements in foreign policy that come under his command as well. So he's not slapping anyone in the face by saying what he said. Of course he didn't go in there and have a knife fight with terrorists to get them killed himself. I don't presume that he'd expect sane people to get that implication by what he said.
