"Why Do They Hate Us?"

Sorry Sage fans, but for some technical reason way beyond me, Blogger Command was down the past couple of days.

Anyway, remember that question from the days and months immediately following 9/11?  Do you also remember that the election of our current, cosmopolitan president was supposed to correct much of that sentiment?  He was supposed to be the healer, the very antithesis of and correction to the swaggering embodiment of American Exceptionalism that was George W. Bush.
Well, in a short piece from ABC News that is actually a puff piece, it seems that among the troves of intelligence gathered from Osama bin Laden's hideout was information showing that he, Osama, had his murderous sights aimed at President Obama as well.  With the election looming and sensing that apologizing for the country has not set well with the average American voter, ABC is doing its best to establish the quintessentially American swagger of Barack Hussein Obama.  The telling line in the report, like below, is set off by itself for maximum effect:
It was President Obama who got bin Laden first.
Tough, laconic, right out of a John Wayne western, George Bush's handlers couldn't have said it better themselves about the "You're either with us or against us" former president.

Hypocrisy aside, look for more and more of this kind of thing as the media, along with the White House, continue to milk the elimination of Osama bin Laden for votes.
