Priorities

Meanwhile, some conservative bloggers are also very busy... criticizing the president's speech. Seems they think it was kind of uppity.

Personally, I'd appreciate it if reporters would stop saying that "It took ten years to find him." It did not take ten years. It took just over two years...dating back to the beginning of Obama's administration. Finding Bin Laden was never a priority for Bush. As early as March 2002, a mere six months after the September 11 attacks, Bush was already saying, "I truly am not that concerned about him." Indeed, I think he was not concerned about him at all. The invasion of a country that had nothing to do with 9/11 was the prime military directive of Bush and his administration. Bin Laden was a potent and convenient boogeyman and I think they liked having him around to fill that role. Any suggestion by Bush that he was actually searching for Bin Laden was nothing but "Dead or Alive!" swinging-dick theatrics for the rubes, who gladly ate it up.

Of course now the national conversation will jump from Obama's "fake" birth certificate to Bin Laden's "fake" corpse. In fact, I expect Donald Trump to weigh in on this within the next couple of days. Then Trump, and others, will be invited on television to be interviewed by so-called journalists as if this is somehow a legitimate and serious topic for debate, while anyone with a brain sits there and facepalms in agony. Years from now, there will still be people in this country who will talk about the "conspiracy" surrounding Bin Laden's death, because they will never be able to accept that it was a Kenyan Muslim Marxist jiggaboo who took Bin Laden out, not their beloved "Mission Accomplished" flight-suit cowboy, "Mama Grizzly" Palin, or any one of a host of tough-talkin', gun-slingin' real Americans.
