Bush, was reading to children in the Emma E. Booker Elementary School,
Sarasota, Florida. An aide whispered the dire news into his ear. Prompt action
could have scrambled fighter jets, but he went on reading for seven more minutes
while the Trade Towers and the Pentagon were under attack.
After the attack, he declared his intent to hunt down and destroy Osama bin
Laden, who was then holed up in Afghanistan. But two years after letting him slip
away, he said, “I don’t know where he is. I truly am not that concerned about
To further distract from his abject failure, he attacked Iraq. After American
troops quickly dispatched Saddam Hussein’s inept gang, Bush dressed himself in a
pilot suit and had himself flown onto the deck of the carrier, USS Abraham
Lincoln, under a banner: “Mission Accomplished.” Right.
` For all of his eight pitiful years, Bush bumbled along like an Animal House
frat boy, unable to deal with Hurricane Katrina, turning a surplus inherited from
Bill Clinton into the worst deficit in U.S. history, claiming to be a “war president”
while urging people to go shopping, and alienating the world. At whatever he did,
George W. Bush proved himself incompetent. Ask any service person or vet the
army term for such people. But there’s worse; a president appoints thousands, and
too many Bush appointees were also incompetent. This is known as Trickle-down
"Brownie, you're doing a heckuva job," was his infamous response to the
disastrous handling of the Hurricane Katrina tragedy in New Orleans. Michael
Brown soon resigned.
In contrast, Barack Obama turned to the finest the U.S. had to offer. With
the CIA and Navy Seals, they quietly located, mapped, planned, and carried out the
mission George Bush had given up on. And Obama did it two-and-a-half years
into his first term as president.
Barack Obama nailed Osama Bin Laden. Working with others as brilliant,
focused, and competent as he, they dispatched U.S. Enemy Number One. Obama
Walks the Walk. Obama nailed Osama. Never forget it.
