"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Patton: Thank You, Mr. President

This article is one of those gotcha articles -- headline of the article leaves you wondering what happened to Doug Patton and then you read the story finding out it is President Bush not Obama.  Now you can breath a sigh of relief that you world has not turned upside down.

What would have happened if Obama had not kept a lot of the Bush foreign policy in tact?  Reminder it is same foreign policy he relentlessly attacked during the 2008 Presidential campaign.  The Obama foreign policy has been a disaster for the Middle East as we now we are facing the prospect of the Muslim Brotherhood taking over Egypt.  The same Muslim Brotherhood who Obama's people said we didn't have to worry about.  Slowly a sense is growing in Egypt that they may end up having more freedoms under President Mubarak then what they are starting to see under the new regime.  Good chance the Muslim Brotherhood will be running Egypt with Shariah Law implemented.  In Libya we chose the side of the rebels without bothering to check them out with some rebels coming from Al Qaeda.
Patton: Thank You, Mr. PresidentBy Doug Patton The world's foremost terrorist is dead, and it seems that thanks are in order. When a leader is deserving of praise, it is only right that those of us who opine on the nature of such things should give credit where credit is due. So I would like to say thank you, Mr. President. Yes, that's right. I would like to say thank you to the man responsible for getting Osama bin Laden. That man is George W. Bush.
As for the foreign policy decisions Obama himself has made, they have all been wrong. He has tried appeasement with the mullahs in Iran, backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, turned his back on Israel, insulted our closest ally in Europe — Great Britain — and cozied up to dictators like Hugo Chavez in Venezuela.
On May 1, 2003, President Bush copiloted a Lockheed S-3 Viking aircraft onto the deck of the carrier Abraham Lincoln as it returned from combat operations in the Persian Gulf. After posing for pictures in his flight suit with members of the ship's crew, the president gave a speech with a banner behind him that read "Mission Accomplished." The Left and their dutiful lackeys in the media went crazy. They called it a stunt.They said Bush was using it to get re-elected; and to this day they will not let go of that image and the message they believe it conveyed. 
Fast forward exactly eight years to the day — May 1, 2011. Osama bin Laden is dead, which is good news for civilized people everywhere. After calling Bush to give him the news, it was all photo-op time for Obama in a week calculated to maximize the perceived PR victory he thought he had just won for himself. 
These shameless "look at me" plugs for the reelection of Barack Obama culminated in an odd, wreath-laying ceremony at Ground Zero, as if it were suddenly September 11th again and it was vitally necessary that he be there. He tried to get former Presidents Bush (43) and Clinton to join him, but to their credit, they declined. 
Then, to cap off his week in the limelight, Obama flew to Fort Campbell, KY, to incorporate the troops into his campaign efforts. 
All this after telling us he would not release photos of a dead Osama bin Laden because "we don't spike the ball." Uh huh. 
So as Barack Obama basks in the sunshine of his imagined personal victory, I say to George W. Bush, "Thank you, Mr. President. You protected our country during your tenure and you put us on the trail of the biggest human cockroach on the planet. Your successor, wearing your large shoes, just happened to step on him."

The double standard by Obama knows no end.  A lot of people in this Country are getting fed up by the I, I, I of Obama when he speaks and the adoring Obama media members who cover for him over and over again.

When are members of the Mainstream Media going to start questioning Obama on why it took him from August 2010 when CIA Director Panetta told him they were sure Bin Laden was in the compound where he was found until May 1st to take him out?  CIA put the compound  under surveillance waiting months for orders to take out Bin Laden.  All these months of dithering on the part of Obama could have led to Bin Laden going back into the mountains again. If Panetta had not issued the order to execute the raid on Sunday was there a possibility Bin Laden with cash on hand could have disappeared again.  Why was Obama on the golf course when this mission was going commenced?  It seems like such a simple question that should be asked by the media but we hear crickets.

It was very telling that Presidents Bush and Clinton refused to participate in the Ground Zero wreath laying in front of 50 specially chosen 9/11 families.  This was all about Obama this past week and no one else.  The White House media could very easily question the picture of Obama watching the raid when it was a blank screen, but we have our doubts they will say a word choosing to continue to cover for Obama.

Will someone please tell us why Obama went to Fort Campbell instead of to Norfolk NAS to meet with the SEALS?  It is Navy SEALS not Army SEALS.  How can one President and his White House Staff get so many facts wrong in such a short period of time?
