    Yes, ONE big RAT is gone... Many of his ilk still out and about awaiting extermination. Let's sip from the champagne for a day but get back to work nailing the rest of the rats tomorrow.

God bless america

    Already people are saying this was just a diversion (gee, wonder if they're republicans). THEY are saying this was to take our minds off high gas prices - GET REAL - prices are dropping where I live and have been for over a week. Grow up whiners.

    Oops, she didn't mention Obama, I guess that means she doens't give him any credit.

    Liberals, just stop the hatred and stupidity. Everything in the world does not revolve around Obama. Nor is this a time for political posturing on either side. This is a day long overdue, but welcome nonetheless. It's something that needed to get done,but it's only one minor step against terrorists; Don't think for a minute that the threat has diminished.

    I'm sure President Obama will have our chief diplomat, Hilary Clinton, present Moammar Kaddafhi with the opportunity to step down in Libya, lest he suffer the same fate as Terrorist bin Laden

    Mrs. Clinton, use this outcome [ and the NATO strike that almost killed him] to convince the Colonel to seek assylum somewhere else.

    And now for some irony... Some of the intel for this came from a GITMO prisoner. Now if the liberals and Democrats had closed it down and set everybody free like they wanted, would this raid have been possible?

    I guess they can thank the Republicans for this!

    I wasn't certain that Bin Laden was still alive or if he died in some mountain cave and we would never know. I guess his decision to live in comfort instead of hiding like a rat in a cave was his true downfall. Our military is the best in the world. Navy Seals are the best of the best! Taking out the Somalian pirates and Bin Laden – all I can say is "amazing." Thank you, Pres. Obama for keeping your focus on the goals that are critical to our national security.

    The republicans are already giving Bush credit when all he did was divert the troops to Iraq.

    Thank you President Obama for catching this bastard that murdered so many people. And thank you Navy Seals.

    Just because bin laden was killed under obamas watch, doesn't mean that he must be re-elected. We must remember that our country has unthinkable debt (14+ trillion and growing), unemployment at 8.8 to possibly 20 .0+, the horrible obamacare, high gas and food prices, looming national security, and so much more. obama must not and will not be re-elected to a second term. America can't take anymore of obamas socialist ways. Vote for the Republican candidate in November 2012.

    No, gord, the republicans have already figured out what to say about this: Bush's secret prisons and torture methods provided the information Obama needed to get Osama. But Obama has closed those prisons and eliminated the torture methods. Therefore Obama is making us less safe and Bush was right to torture and secretly imprison people.

    Laughable, but true.

    If you don't believe me then goto Fox news and read Gingrich's post.

    This whole process didn't begin with Pres. Brobama, but it did end with him. Let's not go too far in heaping praise on one man. Remember GW started this mission to find and kill the mass murderer.
