He's still on the non-spiking the ball tour.

President says bin Laden raid was ‘longest 40 minutes of my life’ - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_theticket/20110509/ts_yblog_theticket/president-says-bin-laden-raid-was-longest-40-minutes-of-my-life - broken link)

Shocker?

Well, according to the latest accounts, it would be nice to know exactly what they were watching in that "photograph" he released. Most likely a blank screen.

Not hes not. These blurbs from the 60 minutes interview which was taped 72 hours after the wet work have been circulating for the last seven days. The show finally aired last night. Now understand I have absolutely no love for this President or his policies. But come on your stretching it a bit wth the ball spiking angle. Honestly if it were Bush and Cheney that took out Osama I would have no problem with them high fiving on national TV.

what a bunch of sour grape obama haters. so talking about the operation with a reporter is spiking the ball? you would be mad if he didn't talk about it and accuse him of being secretive. had this operation gone wrong would you be happier? shake off the hatred, the POTUS did a great job on this one!

You're just upset that George W. Bush was an abject failure at getting the mastermind of 9/11.

Get over it. Your boy is in Texas now, we have a new President, one who knows what he is doing.

And that's no shocker.

Much as Kerry wouldn't shut up about his being in Vietnam or Giuliani about his presence on 9/11, we're going to be hearing Obama saying "By the way, did I mention that I'm the guy who got bin laden?" straight through to the next election. Politicians -whaddya gonna do?

Staged.

I don't mind that because if you think about it, do you want a camera man in the area testifying to what was happening in a top secret mission?
There is a reason the President and others have secrecy to protect us.

That aside, the man does like to spike the ball IMO.
