No one can say it wasn't an eventful week for President Obama. My own opinion of the man dramatically swung in the course of just a couple of days. When he released his birth certificate in the face of Donald Trump's moronic harassing, I thought he looked weak, petty, and extremely politically vulnerable. But then, a couple days leader, he looked like a giant as he calmly and stoically described how he authorized the assassination of the world's most wanted man.
Well, hot damn, America, you finally got Bin Laden. So... how many innocents did you have to slaughter, maim, torture and unjustly imprison; how many of your own citizens were stripped of their basic liberties, their privacy and their dignity; how many inconvenient truths did you have to suppress to accomplish the symbolic goal of nailing Osama Bin Laden?
What with the wave of popular uprisings against authoritarian rulers sweeping across North Africa and the Middle East, it's nice to see that hasn't distracted Obama's focus from his all-important birth certificate situation; yessir, folks, he's totally on top of that issue.
