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.

Interesting that SF's progressive blogs---Fog City, Beyond Chron, and the Bay Guardian---are quiet about Osama Bin Laden's death, though Randy Shaw has a long piece today about how weak President Obama is on other issues!

Anyone care to comment on the reasons for the progressive silence?

It's not about me, Anon. Still waiting for an explanation.

Yes Rob. Right now we really should be worrying about the Prog's response.

You continue to find dirt to dig out at the bottom of the hole.

Because that's the job of Obama and Panetta and Petraeus. Our local politicians should still be focusing on "potholes" (metaphorical potholes...)

Wrong! Actually, local progs can't even keep our streets paved, but the reason they're silent is that they agree with Osama Bin Laden's portrayal of the US as the Great Satan.

Oh just shut the hell up. You have a hard enough time with the bike plan, now you are going to go this type of crazy too?

Osama Bin Laden didn't say America was the Great Satan. He said Rob Anderson was the Great Satan.
