Election 2012

While Obama can say he got Osama on his watch, it is way to early to think this will make the key factor for an Obama re-election victory. In a year this will be old news. Was the next terrorist attack prevented? It seems to be the consensus of many people. We are going to be attacked by people looking for retaliation. The war on terrorism continues. Economic issues will continue. People will ask "What did President Obama do that other Presidents would not have also done?" His supporters are going to be upset at the lack of change. Only if the next election was being held this November, would the death of Osama bin laden be a strong enough factor to give him a victory. But we have more than year, and so many things can change in a year.

Congratulation President Obama

With the death of Osama Bin Laden, Congratulations are in order to the President. Good job. Job well done.

Now I hope the President is ready. It is correct, this victory for the United States, and the world, will not go unanswered. Every plane landing or taking off from Reagan International should have (if it does not already have) air marshals on board. The President and family will need increase security.

Some criticism I am already hearing:
Why did it take so long. You knew of the house in August.
If Gitmo had been closed we would never have gotten him.
What else would the President do? He did what other Presidents would have done.

At this early stage I do not know if these criticisms are correct.

In Louis L'Amour books, the ambush would not take place until after the people would leave the narrow space. This is when they would relax thinking the danger is over. We must not relax yet, we must be on alert. From what I have heard the President is not relaxing. (No golfing today Sir)
