Clearly the top story of today is that Obama killed Osama. I thought it was straight gangster that Obama said in his press conference: “I made it a priority as soon as I took office..,” told no one that this operation was going down till it paid off, and basically took all the credit since Bush gave up.
I’m not a Democrat or Republican because politics are a joke, but I do have much respect for Obama and what he’s done. While he’s been far from perfect, he is getting shit done, which is really just cleaning up the mess that the Bush-era left behind. I find it appalling that some people out there just hate Obama with all their hearts no matter what he does.
Attempt to save the middle class from exploding health care costs (ie; profits)? Fuck you!
Slowly turn around job growth? Fuck you!
Shit on Donald Trump? Fuck you!
Kill Osama bin Laden? Fuck you!
For five fucking minutes, can you just appreciate that he finished the job that Bush couldn’t accomplish and forget that he’s black?
