Obama killed Osama

Andrew Sullivan today:

In my view, the president who found and killed Osama bin Laden will be very hard not to re-elect. Now the association between his name and his enemy's will be an asset: Obama killed Osama. A few tea-party fanatics will have their heads explode. And the Big Lie that Obama is somehow not a strong president is debunked---because strength doesn't actually mean being inflammatory on Fox News, it means exercizing patience, quiet and resolve to get what you want. That Obama also helped prevent a Great Depression---with zero Republican votes---and brought universal health insurance to America. All we need now is a debt deal. And the only way that's possible before the election is if Obama looks highly likely to win it. That likelihood just increased today.
