OMG! Too Bad Obama Can't Dump His Economic Woes in the Sea Too
Such a gullible bunch of loyal sheep we are, all this without a single photo or strand of DNA and a body now fish food at the bottom of the Arabian Sea. Still, all the OBL fever in the world can't save Obama from the reality of his day of reckoning just around the corner. In fairness to him, however, it should be pointed out that it is a collective day of reckoning several presidents in the making, he just happens to be the lucky sucker who gets to be on duty when it implodes.
In the immediate aftermath of the targeted killing of Osama bin Laden, President Obama’s approval rating has jumped higher, with big increases in the number of Americans giving him high marks on dealing with terrorism and the situation in Afghanistan.
But the new poll, conducted Monday evening by The Washington Post and the Pew Research Center, also finds virtually no movement in Obama’s numbers when it comes to handling the economy. That suggests that success on one front — even one as important as the death of the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks — might not translate easily to other areas.
How long Obama’s improved ratings will last is, of course, an open question. The fact that there was no movement in Obama’s approval on the economy — still the top issue by far in the country — offers a reminder of the challenges that remain for the White House. Obama’s 40 percent approval on the economy in this one-night poll is the lowest of his presidency in Washington Post polls, though it has been numerically lower in Pew surveys.
Meanwhile, "good Muslims" disagree with the way in which Osama's body was disposed of - not surprisingly. Said Islamic scholar Asghar Ali Engineer, "If Laden was really killed in a firefight, then his death is justified. He was, after all, responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocents. But I wonder why they dumped him into the sea in such a hurry?"
Don't we all, homie, don't we all.
Worse, the U.S. didn't even do it right according to Islamic law. So why pretend like that's why we did it? Surely we knew some Muslims would question how sloppy we were in our execution (no pun intended).
Good luck with that 2012 election, Team Obama, you're still going to need it. Did you really think you could nail it by unthawing this Swanson terrorist? Pfft.
