Who Gets Credit?

By ConcernedConservative on May 20, 2011

Obama is getting a lot of credit these days. The killing of bin Laden is undoubtedly a feather in his cap that he will be able to use to leverage various political agendas in the next little while.

However, the question has emerged, “who gets the credit really?” While Obama was the one who made the call, the Seals were the ones who actually did the job. These men performed a dangerous operation and pulled it off despite the long odds. And the information that was eventually gained was a result of the work that President Bush did over the last decade.

It’s kind of an interesting dilemma.

One thing is for sure. this issue is something that can be easily leveraged in any direction. Obama is the person who stands to gain the most from the operation, but now the media is using the Navy Seals as political influences to supplement their overall views, while debate rages around them.

    I am so tired of Obama taking the credit for everything! I think the Seals deserve more recognition and praise, along with President Bush who also worked hard during his presidency to make this happen.

    Obama doens’t deserve any credit. By the time the info reached him, how many military and intelligence officials knew that there was a high probability we had located bin Laden? Obama had NO choice but to make the call, or risk permanent political suicide. Gutsy call it ain’t!
