Obama Plays A Cowboy

Barack Obama played the role of a cowboy during a recent interview with the affable Eva Braun of television news, stating that he wanted to “capture or kill” Osama Bin Laden.  Sounds a lot like “Dead or Alive” to me.  It looks like the left has yet another intellectual honesty test.

Obama was right when he said that we should try to capture or kill the terrorist.  He was also right when he said that success in protecting America from Bin Laden is measured by whether or not we cripple Bin Laden to the point where is incapable of harming our country; kill or capture him if we can, stop him we must.  Obama just defended Bush’s approach to Bin Laden.

I applaud Obama for what he said in this interview just as I applauded Bush for taking the same approach for the last seven and half years.  Our liberal friends on the other hand, have some explaining to do.  For seven and half years, using “dead or alive” rhetoric was nothing but war-mongering and pointing out the obvious fact that the War on Terror can be a success even if Bin Laden remains at large was evidence of a misdirected war effort.  Now that Obama supports the same thing, silence.

I guess tough rhetoric coupled with a rational approach to a new kind of war are like deficits to our liberal friends, wrong unless a Democrat is President.

Obama is in no way like Bush. I could care less what he said during a recent interview. The man is timid and weak and if one observes him closely as I have over the last several years one will see this. He is afraid of he own shadow. This will become more evident in the months and years (heaven help us) to come. This is a flaw in a man and a disaster in a president. I know this man is a coward–I’ve it in others and know the look. Wait and see.
