Vice President Joe Biden is the biggest cheerleader of the president's decision to raid Osama bin Laden's compound and, on Monday, he offered new praise for the choice Obama made last spring.

“You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan. Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was there,” Biden said at a fundraiser in Morris Township, N.J.

“Do any one of you have a doubt that if that raid failed that this guy would be a one-term president?” Biden asked. Obama, he said, “is willing to do the right thing and risk losing.”

yeah implying that barry giving the go-ahead then some military engineer's small mistake resulting in a helicopter malfunction resulting in OBL mission failure resulting in president mittens is a little disconcerting

Seriously that makes no sense at all. If the helicopter crashes and OBL isn't there, the White House just shrugs and says it's a confidential matter of national security and everyone pretty much moves on. It's not like you're going to get the GOP base riled up because the sovereignty of Pakistan wasn't respected

they probably read the same stuff we did and know people had concerns about his leadership so they tried to create this narrative of "he acted decisively in the face of great risk" but none of it makes any sense
whats worse is that it feels like theyre trying too hard

Yeah. Does he know asl? Or was he just familiar with the sign? Or did he just recognize that the sign was praise and know how to say thank you?

video of michelle at the bottom is just as awesome too (and probably satisfactorily answers the question of whether the pres just knows "thank you").

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-03-2 ... years.html

Applications (INJCJC) for unemployment benefits dropped last week to the lowest level in four years, reinforcing signs the U.S. labor market is picking up.
Jobless claims decreased by 5,000 to 348,000 in the week ended March 17, the fewest since February 2008, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington. The median forecast of 46 economists in a Bloomberg News survey projected 350,000. The number of people on unemployment benefit rolls and those getting extended payments also fell.

Dismissals have been waning and reports show companies are becoming more willing to expand workforces amid evidence sales are improving. Employment growth will help spur consumer spending, which accounts for about 70 percent of the economy.

John Hood, president of the conservative North Carolina-based John Locke Foundation, has apologized for a very special graphic that one of his bloggers, “Hot Talk WRNN co-host Tara Servatius,” included in her post for the think tank’s blog this week. What is the controversy? All it did was show “President Obama in chains and drag with a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken.” What is the controversy? Everyone loves Kentucky Fried Chicken! And look, Tara Servatius says she “didn’t think about the racial implications of the picture when I posted it. I simply don’t think in those terms.” She’s a fun one.

In an exchange with Myrtle Beach’s The Sun News, Servatius explains that her graphic of President Obama in chains and drag eating a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken “was meant to illustrate Obama’s southern political strategy, nothing more.” Come again?

"At the time, I was searching for a picture of the president in drag to illustrate his southern political strategy of courting young voters, 70 percent of whom support gay marriage. It was one of the first photos to come up on Google Images. Regrettably, I didn’t think about the racial implications of the picture when I posted it. I simply don’t think in those terms. Unfortunately some people do."
