The timing was a thing of pure political beauty. President George W. Bush was only a few days away from speaking to the United Nations' General Assembly about Iraq's renewed efforts to acquire banned weaponry.
Surely, since according to the far right Obama was to blame for the declining economy prior to taking office, he must also then be credited with the growing economy. No amount of twisted logic and ideological contortion can get around that conundrum.
They cannot build the 2012 convention ceiling high enough to contain President Obama for his brilliant foreign policy that toppled a 42-year dictatorship, cost 1/500th of the cost of Iraq, and did not lose a single American soldier.
