Well, Bush promised the same thing. People--and most especially politicians--tend to say things. Eventually, someone turns out to be right, and someone else turns out to be wrong. No huge surprises there.

Thanks for sharing that. Obama has been consistent in his message regarding bin Laden right from day one on the campaign trail. And he was right all along.........

Some promise, so actually DO what they promise.

Sorry, Kudos to President Obama.

Blind adherence to ideology suggests that such a fete would be impossible.

See post above mine for example.

I thought McCain knew where Osama was hiding and would go get him if he were voted in as the President. In other words, we would have had Osama captured or killed on Jan 20, 2009 had McCain won. Since he didn't, McCain never shared the secret hence the delay. I blame Obama for winning the election.
