Are you tired of opportunists?

Saw this today. It sums up my feelings on the Bin Laden matter completely and accurately.

Over the past few days I’ve heard all kinds of opinion on the radio and on television regarding whose policies should get credit for bringing down public enemy #1.

Bush worked on this for 8 years. he laid the ground work for this missions success.

Or on the other side…

See Obama couldn’t find his birth certificate because he was too busy killing Bin Laden.

The disheartening thing about the entire debate is it is so transparent.  It isn’t about our security or an evil thug being eliminated.  It’s about posturing for the 2012 Presidential election.  Conservatives need to insure Bush/they get some credit in order to blunt the up swell they expect in the President’s approval ratings.  The liberals want to make sure they get credit so they can get the “weak in defense” albatross from around their necks.  Americans just want them both to shut up and stop using the risks that others face or take , whether it’s the poor, the elderly or Navy Seals as vote buying currency.  Don’t we deserve better leadership?
