    Since Osama's recent departure, how many of you have said "Obama" when you should have said or meant "Osama" when talking about the situation??

    I've done it numerous times and have seen almost every news commentator and comedian, and public speaker do it......

    Kinda hard not to. But I think of one as "the President" and the other as "the dead fucker".

    Obama deserves praise of sorts, as does G Dubya, but let's give the REAL credit to the bad ass mofos that actually did the deed! It's one thing to press the button and give the approval, it's another to go in there, knowing full well you might not be coming back. These are the REAL American heroes, not the man wearing the $5,000+ suit who gives the order, which was, in this case, obvious!

    W Bush shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as President Obama when it comes to capturing and killing Osama.

    I was just stating that I have never confused the 2. Further, your placement of the subject in the Politics section would usually indicate at least some level of seriousness. If you want it to be a humor item there's a section for those kinds of posts.

    I never have.

    Professionals who can't get people's names right should find a new career, because they're not cut out for the one they're in.
