re: #209 calcajun

I’ve read your other posts in this thread and it sounds as though you believe that BHO deserves no credit for the success but had it ended in tragedy, he would have gotten the blame.

It is very simple; it was a successful operation; it happened on his watch; he was briefed and allowed the operation to proceed, investing the local commanders with the appropriate discretion to act and the hostage was rescued. It happened on his watch—he gets the credit. It falls apart-he gets the blame. That’s what it means to be CIC.

opinionated’s #172 is his only post on this thread (unless they were deleted, or he has a sock-pupet). Obama has a very high possition with very high expectations. What he did was barely meeting expectations. No bonus for that level of work. Yes, he was better then Carter, but that was way below expectations and deserved censure.
