  •  Getting OBL (0+ / 0-)

    Getting OBL was an excellent achievement especially knowing that it happened under Obama's watch.  But, it didn't change much with regard to how Obama is seen in this country.  Most polls have him at a very low ebb and continue to have him there even after this achievement.  

    A couple of my repub friends acknowledged that it was just wonderful that Obama didn't just "give up" on going after bin Laden but from them and from what I've read about how the repubs at large believe, this was just an extension of what was set up by the Bushman in his administration.  To them, it was just circumstantial that this happened while Obama was in office.  

    So, at the end of the day, at least from the right's point of view, this wasn't an accomplishment that should be given to Obama specifically but an accomplishment that should be be given kudos to the agencies that ultimately were involved in getting to the point of finding bin Laden and enacting his ultimate demise.
