Okay that last part was just to get your attention. But if President Obama were being truthful he’d be giving a big Obama fist pump right now to Bush 43. He knows it. Now you know it.
Last night Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense under George W. Bush, agreed with Sean Hannity that George Bush does indeed deserve a good deal of credit for the capture and killing of OBL. Listen how Rumsfeld gives President Obama a great deal of credit for going in and getting Osama bin Laden. But also listen how Rumsfeld details all of the things that George Bush did laying the groundwork for that capture and kill, Including increasing the numbers of special forces, providing more funding for special forces, and providing better equipment. It’s news you can use.
Honestly … there is little question Bush’s primary concern was he safety and security of the Republic. He did a magnificent job despite the howls from even small libertarians like myself. I still wrestle with the warrentless wiretapping … but that too helped lead us to OBL.
