“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

President lallygagger

Over at Ace of Spades HQ via Linkiest, there's a piece about how the fawning media is praising Obama for what amounts to doing his job on the Osama bin Laden hit. Well worth the read. Here's an excerpt.....

So why should I praise Obama for a choice that every single one of his predecessors and every plausible successor would also make?

The media and the toadies in the administration are trying to paint a picture of "office heroics" on the part of the President, when all he did was give the green light after dawdling and lallygagging for almost a full day. He did the right thing, but he's not a hero for doing it.

I don't know. Would Ron Paul do it? You did say plausible, though.

Good point. I doubt Paul would send the SEALs into a sovereign country just to get a marginalized, though symbolic, target.
