LOL! OK, Mr. President, how about a few million decent jobs for the folks? And, since we know you're concerned about the deficit, how about taking the top marginal tax rates back to where they were in 1980?Good one, tnlib. Very good. ;)
Great photo, tnlib.The fanatic fringe GOPers have all swallowed their teeth over this triumph for America, its military, and its American president, Barack Hussein Obama!George Bush did this? Yeah. That's why he congratulated Mr. Obama! Envy and jealousy is so not attractive.
@S.W.: Glad you liked it. The Republicans would have to cooperated to create jobs and I think we know the GOP doesn't give two hoots in hell about creating jobs. They want to keep the people poor.@Shaw: I'm thinking this is only going to hurt the wing-nuts in the eyes of the rest of the country.
It seems like a long bow to draw but serving justice to Bin Laden could have positive ramifications for Americans on domestic social issues, because it gives Obama an enormous stash of political capital which a politician of his skills should be able to use. A whole other level on which the timing of this is very good is that it happens at the bloom of a Muslim political spring, when ordinary people in the Muslim world are rising up against their dictators. It says THIS is how change happens to improve the lot of ordinary Muslims: by the will of the people, and not by extremist fringe thugs running around committing vile acts of mass murder – the popular figurehead of whom is now dead. I’m feeling optimistic today.
Magpie: Good to see you resurfacing. I don't think you're too far off and I too am optimistic, albeit cautiously. No doubt there are a few eager zealots waiting to take OBL's place and they will be hell bent on getting revenge. But as you say, this is the bloom of a Muslim spring. It may take a few years, but hopefully we will see, if not the end of terrorism, a severe crippling of its effects.
We finally are seeing the 'hardball' Obama! I like it a lot! Thanks!!!!!!
I like it too but there's always been a small group of us who have said that Obama is a lot craftier than people realize - that he prefers to work quietly behind the scenes and not crow before the cameras before he has something to crow about.
To be perfectly honest, as an inhabitant of the sea and a solid citizen of the realm, you have no idea how much I resent those humans dumping trash in my backyard. Osama FIN Laden, indeed. Why not embalm and stuff him in a Tanqueray bottle; then call him Osama GIN Laden. As for that Tonsil Dump character, why not call him Osama TWIN Laden.And anyone who criticizes the Pres. for bagging the bum should be renamed Osama SPIN Laden.
It is really hard for the vicious right to find something to criticize Obama for on this one so they have to 'Freudian slip' Osama's name to Obama. I don't know whether to laugh or scream at their outright hatred of our president.
Octo: LOL. I can't even come up with a good response to that.Darlene: I hate to say it, but it ain't just the idiots on the right. The other extreme is already beginning their usual nitpicking.
Oh, this is GOOD! I'd not seen it and I'm so glad you pulled it out for us--a true public service, Les.
Thanks, Nance - I liked it too. : )
good for you! thanks, Leslie!
