I am thoroughly disgusted with the average American voter.
Just a couple of weeks ago, Obama's approval ratings were not looking too good. He was hovering around 50% in most polls, with an almost equal disapproval rating. Republican venture vultures were flocking to peck out their status order, convinced that if one of them could uncover the winning platform (subject to corporate approval, naturally!), that candidate could defeat Obama. Yet once the president ordered the pseudo-judicial summary execution of a man, admittedly not a good man, and maybe a threat to the nation (not that we will ever know for sure now), now the American people are backing him in larger numbers than he's seen in a long while? Having blood on one's hands (whether justifiably or not is a topic for another discussion) must be a good thing in the eyes of American voters. Maybe the only good thing.
Millions of formerly employed people remain so. I don't have a breakdown for how many people in this condition have altered their opinion of Obama over bin Laden's killing, but any who have done so are clearly not too worried about having no means of support. They obviously would rather applaud a proven killer leader than become employed again.
More homes than the 1 million homes already foreclosed (according to RealtyTrac) will be foreclosed this year, yet nothing is being done by the Obama administration, neither to fix this problem nor to prosecute those who caused this crash in the first place. I don't have a breakdown for how many people in this condition have altered their opinion of Obama over bin Laden's killing, but any who have done so are clearly not too worried about losing their homes, probably the only asset many will ever have in their lives. That matters nothing compared to Obama being able to add a notch to his Commander in Chief swagger stick and wave it about.
