Obama’s 2012 Leverage

By ConcernedConservative on May 4, 2011

No matter what your political stance is, you have to admit that the death of Osama bin Laden was a huge victory for President Obama. The death of the terrorist leader was a military success, and it was a political victory.

Interestingly, the situation seems to mirror the capture of Saddam Hussein in 2003. George Bush had a year left on his term, and the news of Saddam’s capture helped contribute to his reelection the next year.

It seems doubtful that Donald Trump stands much chance of election now, having been thoroughly trounced by Obama during the Washington Correspondent’s dinner, and having the news of Bin Laden’s death touch down a couple of days after.

We may have to expect that Obama will be able to leverage this into a second term. For better or worse, this positoning is certainly going to be used for political advantage.
