You silly jerk!
CI (you silly doody head), so what?
It may come as a shock to you, but I didn't do a dance when Bin Laden was killed, and I would not have danced if Bush got him either.
I'm glad the bastard died violently (and I hope he experienced extreme fear and pain) and it was an important symbolic victory, but while I give credit to Obama for making it happen (notwithstanding his unseemly personal grab of the glory) , it didn't materially affect the threat Islamism poses to America.
As for Afghanistan, he, haltingly, approved a surge only to declare defeat through a scheduled pull-out.
Barack will never be known as Obama of Afghanistan
I don't know that he increased spending on defense during his presidency but if he did, I will bet dollars to donuts that it was a result of the gimmicks of Washington accounting and not because he was of the position that it was necessary.
Having said all of this, I again say "So what?"
Even if I adopt your sycophantic view concerning these issues, why would they cause me to vote for him?
President McCain would have accomplished at least the same and almost definitely more.
Obama is gutting our economy and our nation.
I'm glad that his narcissism has led to his personally pronouncing death sentences on certain of our enemies, but this is not something that will attract my vote.
You're reply to my post indicates a poor (and I would suggest deliberately so) understanding of conservative thinking. We're not all about bloody revenge and big ass weaponry.
Now, you must consider whether or not what you replied is the gist of your argument for persuading non-believers to vote for The One.
This is really all you can muster in defense of him?
Notably, your defense hasn't a single element of domestic policy.
How far down the path of failure will you partisan stalwarts follow?
