“…Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives to this mission. They have our everlasting gratitude. This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done….” George W. Bush
Now I know why General Petraeus is taking the CIA job.
The other day I began telling people that a great darkness had been lifted from the world. I watched part of the Beatification of John Paul II, and felt the same way. There was something good going on, after so many years of darkness.
I would have missed the excitement had Sally Vee not emailed and told me to (in very large fonts) turn on the news.
Barack Obama gave a good speech. He was gracious, and quite presidential. I approve of the way he contacted George W. Bush.
The Pink Flamingo cannot criticize Barack Obama for how he has carried out the War on Terror. He has followed in GWB’s giant bootsteps. The irony is the fact that his execution of the War on Terror may be what harms him most with the far left.
I am conflicted as to what to write next. Unfortunately, Wyatt Earp surfaces. We are a nation of Wyatt Earps, with the defining moment of our character occurring around 2:30PM on October 26, 1881.
Evidently that’s about how bin Laden went out.
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heav’nly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
I just realized something.
Every night since September 11, I’ve burned a candle. I stopped burning it a week ago. It was getting to be a heck of a lot expensive because I’ve been burning really good Yankee Candles. Over the years I’ve wondered when I was going to stop burning the candles. When I stopped last week, I felt a little strange, but had no desire to relight it.
It is also a very tacky excuse to use my favorite photo of GWB.
It is also a time to thank God for every man and woman who has fought four our country, many giving their all, many more being catastrophically injured. May God bless and keep them!
