    Curious how long ... since Bush seemed to "fail miserably" at it, will it take the Obama administration to snag Osama Bin Laden?

    Isn't he buried under the 11 trillion dollar debt, 7.5% unemployment, The Iraq War, The weapons of mass destruction, The missing weapons the USA lost in Iraq, Failed health care system, Mickey Rourke's big yap, National crumbling infastructure,Staggering trade inequity,Looming 65 trillion dollar social security payout, Dick Cheney's used colostomy bags, Looming Veteran affairs claims, Sheer weight of Europe and the rest of the worlds disdain of the USA.......That George is about to Hop Skip And Jump Away From?

    Or maybe Osama Bin Laden is just Holed up with Yo Mama.

    I hope he does. But, Uh, the third world will always hate the US, even if we elected a militant muslim. they are already burning Obamas pictures. Its called jealousy.
    Hardline demonstrators burn posters of U.S. President-elect ... - Yahoo! News Photos

    not to mention BO continuing to burden my grandkids future with this rescue plan for companies that will go OUT OF BUSINESS ANYWAY. Its not their money to give away. Who will pay back the taxpayer (or the percent of people who pay taxes?)

    I think the real question is: How long will it be before we get attacked again. My guess is lesss than 12 months.

    faceking, you're confused about more than just gender.

    A president made a public promise to bring Osama bin Laden into custody "dead or alive", but it wasn't Barack Obama.

    Why are you asking when Obama will fulfill one of his predecessor's commitments, if not to unconstructively stir up drama?

    How soon before Joe Biden shoots someone in the face?

    if we do, they can always blame bush, but it would be hard. They will for years to come when it comes to the deficit that will grow under BO........it gives them cover.

    Did anyone ever get credit for lower gas prices?

    BO can part the atlantic and OBL can walk here.

    BO made a similar promise, i believe to "bring him to justice" whatever that means, but he can always backtrack on that one too. No one REALLY listens to him anyway.

    Biden can shoot himself in the foot, if we ever get to hear his toxin filled forehead talk again.

    Incorrect, sir...
    People are well aware of what is happening with the economy, what fueled it, and that it'll probably take the next GOP their entire 4 (or 8) year term to turn things around. The current GOP entered into office while the country was on an upswing. And now, they leave it in worse shape than it was when they came in. If anything, if Obama isn't able to turn things around we know that a good portion of the blame still lies with the people who drove our economy to this catastrophic meltdown in the beginning.

    At least the intelligent people will know this. I'm not sure about you. :rolleyes: :biggrin1:

    Why, yes they did. His name is "recession".

    Actually, more people are willing to listen to Obama than Bush or anyone in the current GOP for that matter. Hence his high approval rating worldwide. Me thinks once the next GOP is in place, there will be a good chance for people to finally exhale and get things back on track.

    Well, at least it isn't Palin aiming the gun. :rolleyes:

    I didn't vote as my answer is not represented. I say, Never; because we don't want to find him.

    Bush neutered Osama Bin Laden so that he hasn't been able to carry out another attack on the U.S., and you know how much he's been trying. Eight years and Osama hasn't been able to answer the destruction of the Taliban and his own humiliation of having to turn tail and live in a dirt hole.

    Since Bush neutered him he's been shooting blanks. Osama is sick and wasting away in a hole in the mountains of Pakistan, just like Sadam Hussein was living in a hole in Iraq when he was found.

    Bush will go down in history as the ball buster of terrorists and tyrants.


    Thank you President Bush, Thank you Vice-President Cheney for keeping Americans safe at home and abroad.

    How much do you know about Islam? Suicide rates tend to be lower in Islamic countries than in the United States and Europe. (source) The same idiosyncratic attitudes that Islam promotes about bodies -- no alcohol, no pork, women must cover themselves, genuflect five times a day, fast during Ramadan, etc. -- ingrain a deeper taboo against suicide than we have in our culture.

    I suspect Osama loves the fact that he's managed to outwit the Bush administration for all these years. But if he were facing the choice of killing himself or being martyred for his cause, he wouldn't choose suicide.

    What about the shahids?

    I thought there were several reports that his guards are instructed to kill him if it looks like his capture is imminent.
