To rid the world of Osama bin Laden, Anwar al-Awlaki and Moammar Qaddafi within six months: if Obama were a Republican, he'd be on Mount Rushmore by now.
Wrong, Andrew. If this were a Republican (say George W. Bush), we would be hearing that Osama was either still alive (pictures of the corpse still havenít been released) or that his body had been preserved on ice until it was politically beneficial to bring out. If this were a Republican (say George W. Bush) Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats would pressed for impeachment over the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki. And if this were a Republican (say George W. Bush), the entire Libyan expedition, including the death of Qadaffi, would be grounds for massive anti-war protests and calls for prosecution by the International Criminal Court.
And what's more, Excitable Andy ought to know that he would be leading a leading voice for all three of those reactions if this were a Republican president (say George W. Bush).
