Osama bin Laden is still dead

Osama bin Laden is still dead

Thank you, President Obama!

Thank you, Joe Biden for reminding the American convention about what President Barack Obama did for the American public during the years of his presidency. I’ve been waiting for a long time for Americans to once again congratulate President Barack Obama for hunting down and killing Osama bin Laden.

The American Navy Seals killed Osama bin Laden, but it took the coordination of American intelligence and the military, which were all under the leadership of President Barack Obama. 


Contrast that to the presidency of George Bush, Jr. Under George Bush’s watch, intelligence between federal intelligence agencies was not shared, which resulted in the atrocities of 9/11. In addition, Osama bin Laden was not found or killed under the leadership of George Bush, Jr. whose threats against terrorists were all empty words. 


The world is a safer place since Osama bin Laden,  the world’s most wanted terrorist, was killed and buried at sea. National security for American citizens is a priority of the Obama Administration. 


During the Democratic National Convention, both President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden touched on the theme of security for the American people. Joe Biden reminded everyone at the convention about the great deeds of President Barack Obama during his presidency.

I’m sure that the issues of national security were touched upon during the Republican National Convention as well, but the difference is that the words were without meaning. It’s hard to believe a party who scared the American public with the threat of terrorists while at the same time allowed the world’s most wanted terrorist to go unhunted and consequently, unkilled


The Republican president did not have the strength and courage to hunt down Osama bin Laden. Perhaps it was a fear of failure or perhaps it was something darker. The important thing to note is that the Democrats took the steps necessary to do the job and take care of the world’s most wanted terrorist. 


The courage and strength of character needed to do this are evident not just in President Barack Obama’s speeches, but in his deeds as Commander in Chief. It is a joy to have a president this smart at the helm of the United States of America. 


Let’s keep President Obama in office for four more years and see what else he can accomplish during his second term as president. The American people need a bad ass president and I’m sorry to say it, Mitt Romney is not it.
