Even Afghanistan is a Campaign Stop for President Obama


In the four mostly grim years that Barack Obama has been president of these United States, he has made one, and only one, decision that has united Americans, drawn plaudits from both sides of the aisle, and substantially advanced the interests of our country. That, of course, would be his decision to order the killing of Usama bin Laden, the mass murderer who had planned the deaths of nearly three thousand Americans a decade before.

It was no accident that following the death of bin Laden his approval rating spiked and he enjoyed his only period of 50% plus support since ending his first year in office.

It’s amazing to contemplate your political reward if you keep the country first in mind.

But that was then, this is now.

Now Obama is fully engaged in the grubby business of re-election, something he has focused on to the exclusion of his day job.
