They could get far more traction with that than with their silly efforts to manufacture an argument that Obama doesn't deserve credit for approving the operation.

    I don't think any politician EVER would have covered himself in the flag and tried to worm his way into credit for the successes of our armed forces, the ones who took the REAL risks, as shamefully as Obama has...






    since the last one...

    While you claim to see no differences, ala Steven Colbert, our society has managed to segregate homosexuals and apply a different standard when assigning their rights. It must be comforting for the GLBT crowd to know that their elected leaders understand the disparities and are actively trying to include their perspective into myriad conversations. Sometimes it's helpful to acknowledge differences instead of pretending they don't exist and that we can all operate without bias.

    Operating without bias may be an aspirational concept, but it is rare to see it practically applied. We all have biases of some form or fashion that influence us every day. Most on this forum may even admit to their bias as a Husker fan.

    That is exactly what I was saying. "Pretending...that we can all operate without bias."

    If it was off the clock no problem by me, if it was outside of their contracts or if it in any way compromised the security of the President then yeah people should have a problem with it. If people say that about gays in the military then its just ignorance on their part, but I don't think that is something you will ever be able to do away with no matter the laws/regulations in place.

    Victory Lapse - The Anniversary of Osama bin Laden's DeathIn a cacophony of galling forgetfulness, Republicans accuse President Obama of an unseemly leveraging of his role in Osama bin Laden's death.

    I think their are some really myopic folks here that would rather have had a Iran Hostage Rescue clusterfudge in Pakistan if that meant Obama wouldn't get reelected.
