    If you think Obama didn't say "hell yeah" afterwards, then you certainly haven't been paying attention the last decade. Everyone in this country had a vested interest in the outcome of bin Laden. His life, and his death. Even the President of the United States. To see that interest wasn't wasted is a good thing and worth smiling about.

    The same people who nearly destroyed us before now want to finish the job. Will you let them?

      of course he's glad.  but he cant and didnt come out shooting fireworks on the white house lawn. that's important.

      On DailyKos nothing is significant unless Obama doesn't do it.

      than you didn't read it very well and thus missed the point. This diary has nothing to do with private reactions or displays of emotions. It's about what we show to the world and what is says about us as a people and as a nation.

      imo, publicly celebrating the death of someone reveals that they had control over your emotions and reasoning. I would never give OBL that kind of power. I'm glad he's dead but I'm not about to give his followers the satisfaction of seeing that he affected me in any way or that his death actually is worth celebrating. I would prefer that his followers see that OBL's death deserved no more celebration than if we'd swatted a nuisance fly.
