I tried, I really tried not to comment on this. I stopped myself from writing smart ass remarks on the walls of Facebook friends who all but announced IN ALL CAPS that they are borderline racist and/or full blown simpletons. If I thought for a second that some of them came to their conclusions after even a fraction of a minute of self exploration rather than just parroting what their friends were saying, I wouldn't take issue. That's the God's honest truth.
The fact is Barack Obama was in office when Osama Bin Laden was killed by US soldiers. Why is everyone blowing a wad about him, the President of the US, coming on air and announcing the news? So he should take the blame for gas prices but how dare he take some credit for Bin Laden? Do you imagine it all went down without his having any prior knowledge? That someone just woke him up, told him the news and handed him a speech? Whether or not you support him, he's the PRESIDENT, he's who gets to talk when big shit goes down. Look at it this way, George W Bush just happened to be in office on September 11, 2001. Who did you expect to see on TV that evening? Personally, I expected to see the PRESIDENT.
I can't even begin to discuss the conspiracy theories alleging that Bin Laden is alive, that it was all a hoax to distract us from taking it in the ass at the pump, because my head might explode. Also, I don't like to think that the country I love is inhabited by barely evolved neanderthals. Is it a bit odd that his body was disposed of so quickly, that there are no photos? Yeah, it's odd. Doesn't mean it's not true. If we took the energy and brain power some of us use to "prove" Obama is running a scam and put it to, I don't know, fight homelessness or cure a disease, our country might be in a better way today.
Save your emails, I'll go ahead and preemptively label this post Got Me Hate Mail.
