Washington (CNN)- In the days leading up to the attack on Osama bin Laden’s compound, President Obama stuck to his routine and kept a poker face even though he was on the verge of getting his most wanted terrorist.
While he juggled a trip to tornado ravaged Alabama and the Kennedy Space Center, made jokes at the White House Correspondents dinner, and played a half round of golf, the president was holding secret meetings and weighing intelligence before giving the operation a green light.
Barack Obama is a very good president. He played this perfectly, professionally and decisively. I love having a competent, capable president in the White House these days.
wow ... now thats multi tasking....
Yeah, no other president in history was able to do more than one thing. He really is the best of ever.
is this what they meant by being able to chew gum and walk at the same time? When are people going to finally give this President credit!
Very proud of all of those involved. I am very proud to be a President Obama supporter
He will go down as one of the greatest Presidents this nation has seen. Bravo, President Obama.
Salute to our President and the soldiers who had so successfully carried out this mission. Again, with all our hearts and soul, I hope this is a slight comfort to the families who lost their love ones on 9/11.
Again, a Salute to all of You.,
God bless the United States of America. And: way to go President Obama!
Thank you Mr. President, as always I'm proud to be an American. We can never know what you must have gone through those 40 minutes, worrying about the navy seals. Yes you are "gusty" and truly care about this country. Let the haters be who they are; petty and afraid. Continued to do what the American people need you to do. Again thanks for all you've done for our country, President and Commander In Chief.
maybe had the POTUS come out last night and said how PROUD he was of himself like Donald Trump did, the far right would have something really to blast him on. Nevertheless they still seek things to discredit this president at all cost. I think after this though their crying and complaining is going to fall more on death ears and the GOP had better start seeking a more serious candidate to take him on in 2012.
He's the one in 2012. We need him to continue and not interrupt the progress made to date with a bunch that wants to destroy our country for their corporate contributors.
See, that's why I couldn't be President. I can't do all that, lol.
It's called "chewing gum and walking at the same time" – even thought many from the RIGHT thought he was just "chewing gum!"
I am proud of our President and I will continue to look at the BIG PICTURE instead of trying to see through a "long tunnel"....
It is easier for the Obama to fight this war than it was for Bush. Bushes enemies in the war on terror were the democrats and the terrorists. Obama's enemies on the war on terror are just terrorists. It is a good thing that Obama had Republicans backing him on his decisions to beef up the Afghan war! The only time a Democrat rejoices in war time is when it benefits them politically.

This was why I voted for President Obama. As a registered-Republican I could see no other better suited for the Office of President- not in 2008 or now. You proved to us all that you have what it takes to be a great leader and command-in-chief.
Thank You Mr. President!!!!!!
Thank you President Obama, just as your promised, you can walk and chew gum at the same time ... and a whole lot more!!!
Wow, what a great photo. If this thing had gone wrong, he would have been ruined. Very gutsy move by Obama and hooray for our Seals!!
Obungle did NOTHING. He brings new meaning to the term "lame duck".
I am impressed by President Obama's decisiveness and wisdom in dealing with this mission! I want to THANK the Navy Seals, U.S. Intelligence and all those who bravely went to attack Osama bin Laden!
Obama/Biden 2012~~~ Yes WE CAN........ and YEAH WE DID IT, USA!!!
Barack Obama...cool, calm, and deadly.
Now this is a man who can do more than 1 thing at a time.
Good job Mr. President. By keeping to a normal routine you raised no suspision. You have showed the world how it is done. God Bless our military who carried out the raid and wiped this trash, Bin Laden. off of the face of the earth.
when prez.obama says mission accomplished, something gets accomplished.
This is a truly outstanding President. Thank you sir for all you have done for our nation.
Most of GOP are claiming, it was the good laid foundation of the previous President which led to the killing of bin Laden. What about agreeing also it was the same person who put the economy in the situation it wasn't before!
