Did Obama use his campaign to bash Bush's military and foreign policies, and then take credit for Bush's millitary and their expertise in the Pirate kidnapping. Those were men trained in Bush's military and Obama refused to talk about the kidnapping for 5 days. But when some snipers take the pirates out, Obama comes out of hiding and took some credit for the act.
Wasn't Obama just on the telephone, listening to Bush's miitary telling him Mr. President this is what we need to do?

Does it really matter? The man is safe and on his way to his family. So he gave the green light to use lethal force and the job got done thanks to three American heroes. I don't credit Obama with this, I credit the three brilliantly trained seals, the wonderful folks that trained him and the men and women behind the operation. JMO.

I can see why you chose to post anonymously. I think Obama, just like Bush, is surrounded by brilliant advisers. Bush just chose not to listen to his. I give the credit to our wonderful military. And while I'm at it, I want to say a big thank you to all the military personnel out there who keep us safe every day. I'm proud to be American, I support you, and I appreciate the job you do!
