Providing all the news we see fit to print since 2002!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011
I have been very critical of the President and some of his policies for some time now. I was disappointed at the time because, at least to me, Obama hadn't been the kind of Chief Executive that I expected that he would be. But that all changed on May 1!

Did he change? No, not quite! But my expectations did! When the President announced that Osama Bin Laden was killed in Pakistan, it was a real shot in the arm for an otherwise lackluster presidency.

I'm not alone in this. Obama's job approval jumped from 48% to 60%. This bump in the rating was obviously caused by the ending of Bin Laden's life. It did that and more! People are no longer questioning his birth, or his religion. At least not in the public arena. Yes at first there was doubt that Bin Laden was truly found and killed, but reality is setting in.

Don't get me wrong! I know that this so called War on Terrorism is not nearly over. As Lewis Carol observed in his poem "Jaberwocky" Slaying the monster really didn't change things.But that Mayday was an important step in helping this country heal from the attack at the Twin Towers and the Pentagon 10 years ago! True, Al Qaeda and other hostile forces have vowed revenge, but this time we as a nation will be ready for it. If Rush Limbaugh can say "Thank you" to Obama, anything can happen in America!

Mayday has 2 different meanings. Deep distress, or a celebration of new life. Osama Bin Laden has caused us both. Now, it's someone else's turn!
