Looks like somebody finally gets to discover the answer to the question: Exactly how many virgins does Allah give you when you get to heaven?
“Nope. Sorry Mr. Bin Laden. Not even one.”
Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Although this won’t bring back any of our lost loved ones, our American brothers and sisters who died in the attack, nor the countless heroes lost fighting terrorism overseas… maybe it will help bring closure to the hearts and minds of a few of those bereaved. And possibly discourage “The Next Bin Laden.”
It may be too soon to look at this in terms of political impact… but this will definitely give Obama a bump with moderates and conservatives… for a while. The media is currently portraying the president as not only a decisive commander in chief, they’re practically putting him in the compound pulling the trigger on Osama!
“You gotta ask yourself, Osama… do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?”
Like I said, this will help him out with his poll numbers. Oddly, the people who love him the most are the ones who won’t be impressed at what was accomplished. The left abhors the war on terror, any display of American force, and our military in general. So this won’t win him any points with his disenfranchised base.
I, personally, applaud the president for his decisive action in this case. I didn’t think he had it in him, and I was proven wrong. I still wouldn’t vote for him in any election, anywhere. But credit where credit is due… begrudgingly 🙂
