I woke up this morning and, as is my custom, went immediately to the computer and Huffington Post. A momentous headline greeted me. See it here:

Last night, President Obama proclaimed that America was back. He didn't go into the details he could have and crow about the operation that was officially announced just a few minutes after his outstanding address. I think he knew that would seem like grandstanding and was better handled another way -- in the midst of Rethug bombast trying to belittle his State of the Union address.

It was a classic "Oh, shit!" moment for the Rethug apologists and liars.

I grew up on slogans like, "Millions for defense. Not one cent for tribute." It really irks me to see us "negotiate" with terrorists and/or bullies.

Thanks to Seal Team 6, those who wish to lay their hands on or massacre American citizens have to think multiple times before attempting to do so. President Obama and the US military has made it abundantly clear that, if they follow through, we are going to come calling when they least expect and we're going to be in a very bad mood.

Congratulations, Mr. President! Well done, Seal Team 6!

  1. Exactamundo, Friend! It is definitely a "feel good" day for our team. But even more than the dramatic event, I feel that Obama's cool handling of the situation as well as the keeping quiet about it showed a class act that none of the presidential pretenders could hope to match in any way. On to November!
