Show some real courage, Mr. President 

“The most important thing is for us to find Osama Bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him." - George W. Bush, 9/13/01

"I don't know where he is. I have no idea, and I really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority." - George W. Bush, 3/13/02

Alright, then. After eight months of careful planning, President Obama authorized a ground assault on Osama bin Laden’s compound. Our troops engaged him in gun battle, rather than mail it in from the sky like a bunch of Nancies. Good going. So how about President Obama show up and support families whose homes are being foreclosed in record numbers, or stand with teachers and public employees who find themselves under attack by Republicans in every corner of the country? Or call out Republican congressmen bent on slashing every government program designed to help poor and working people?  Those tasks require much more Presidential courage and leadership than killing Osama bin Laden.
