So when President Bush said "I truly am not that concerned about him," you think that meant he was concerned about Bin Laden?
He said he wasn't concerned because he meant it. The rest of the quote just gave his explanation for why he was "not that concerned" about the terrorist who plotted the deaths of 2,977 people on American soil, despite promising the American people six months earlier we'd get him "dead or alive."
Bush took his eye off the ball and Bin Laden was still alive and free at the end of his presidency.
Obama made Bin Laden a top priority and Bin Laden is dead.
You're so busy trying to blame the left for everything that you won't hold Republicans accountable for anything. Consider the possibility that Bush made a mistake here.
Wow. Your starting to get into the Coffee and Tea realm, here. Surely you understand that we barely missed Bin Laden during the Bush administration, right? I guess you think Bush wanted
to barely miss Bin Laden? I guess it just doesn't make sense to you that the intelligence gathering apparatus put in place during the Bush administration was utilized during the Obama administration to effect the killing of Bin Laden, right? We can't give both of them credit for hunting down public enemy #1, who was clearly protected by a foreign government, because we HAVE to stay in party lines, right?
If you seriously think Bush didn't care about killing Bin Laden, you are in the catagory of the people mentioned in my pervious post and there really is no reason to have a dialog with you anymore, because everything the left does is right and everything the right does is not only wrong, but most likely illegal, right?
I hold Bush accountable for starting us on this crazy spending spree. I hold Obama accountable for not only continuing the spending spree, but increasing it at a breakneck pace. I give Obama credit for taking the political risk to kill Bin Laden up close and personal. Do I think he did anything extra that magically led to finding Bin Laden? No, the apparatus was already in place.
Now, what, if anything, negative do you hold Obama accountable for?
