One year ago, President Obama gave the order to send SpOps into a compound in Pakistan to kill or capture Osama Bin Laden. He was killed in the raid. At the time I was more than willing to say, great call Mr. President, but now, a year later, Mr. Obama is trying to say that he did it and his opponent would not have pulled the trigger.

Mr. Romney has stated that even Jimmy Carter would have done the same thing, that given the information at hand, any one in the oval office, except maybe Joe Biden would have sent in the troops. I agree with Mitt Romney, it is a shame that Mr. Obama is using this decision that he made as POTUS, to try to make political hay against his opponent. It was a good decision and the dedicated men and women who got the information, and the troops that executed the plan made it happen. They all deserve the credit for this operation.

I have to wonder, why Mr. Obama doesn’t just run on his record. He has saddled the country with 5 trillion in debt in just 3 years, a record accomplishment. His Health Care Reform (Obamacare) is set to take over 1/3 of the economy in 2013, and of course the new taxes that are coming up in Janurary of 2013 will help to drive us back into recession, if not a mild depression. But of course the Democratic Senate won’t even discuss all the bills passed in the house to try to stimulate the economy, because it might embarrass Mr. Reid and Mr. Obama. All that has come of that is hate speech aimed at Paul Ryan, instead of discussion of the passed in the House of Representatives but not even allowed to be talked about in the Senate. It is interesting, the Senate could and should be working on a budget, something they have not been willing to do in 3 years, but they won’t even look at the budget passed in the house. One last year and one this year. They could amend the budget more to their liking and pass it, it would go to conference committee and get adjusted by both sides and we might actually have a real budget once again. But NO Harry Reid won’t even bring it to committee much less the floor of the Senate.

So, what do you think about all this? Is it time to replace the leadership in the Senate? Perhaps on both sides of the aisle, since Mitch McConnell has not been particularly effective either. I’d really like to know what you think dear reader.
