  •  Obama Has Earned Counter-Terrorism Cred (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Two elements there. The killing of Osama bin Laden and the   increased use of drones. Think the drone use can be questioned from the left. If Bush was doing it we would be saying that he was increasing hatred of the US in the Islamic world with the policy. Having said that, the majority of the public is with Obama on his counter-terrorism policies. With this credibility I don't think he is vulnerable to attacks from the right (he is coddling the suspect, he has let  up on the war on terrorism, etc.). They will make the charges but  it will only resonate among the minority of the population that are Obama haters. In other words, the Republicans.
