A poster on The Corner, responding to a person pleading for “national unity” or something:
And this attitude is why more often than not, Republicans lose. If Bush had killed Bin Laden (which he should have in 8 friggin years!), do you think the liberals would be falling all over themselves to praise him like so many here are doing with Obama? This is the nightmare scenario for the GOP. Not only will Obama cruise to victory next year, his coattails will now be in full effect again, hurting our chances in House and Senate races across the country. There is no excuse for President Bush to not have gotten this done in his two terms in office. Obama putting Osama out to pasture in two years makes the whole Bush team look like weak amateurs. You cannot….CANNOT…take politics out of this. And as a said before, Obama is at an unbelievably strong 50% even with gas prices, food prices, lack of jobs, etc. The public is looking for any reason to side with the guy and this is a mighty good reason.
