Senator Shirley Smith (D) recently introduced a Senate Resolution (SCR12) to honor the President and the military for the successful operation against Osama bin Laden:

To honor President Barack Obama and the United States Armed Forces for the successful operation against Osama bin Laden on Sunday, May 1, 2011.

Republican Senator Grendell seemed to think this resolution wasn’t thorough enough, so he decided to add a few more names to the list – and a few extra letters. The content of Grendell’s resolution (SR71) is almost an exact copy of Smith’s, except he now expands the intro to this:

To commend and honor the United States Armed Forces, Navy Seal Team 6, the Central Intelligence Agency, the George W. Bush Presidential Administration, and the Barack H. Obama Presidential Administration for the successful operation against Osama bin Laden on Sunday, May 1, 2011.

I guess I can understand Grendell’s political desire to add Bush to the list, but adding the “H” to Obama’s name? Is there really someone out there who isn’t sure WHICH President Barack Obama we were honoring here?

    Years from now, when Ohio is ranked near the bottom of places to live, dismal economies, poor schools, and narrow-minded legislatures, we can all thank Tim Grendell and his GOP cronies.  Ohio will be known as a place that used to be nice, a place with thoughtful people, a place for families.  I can’t believe how much damage Grendell and his friends, including Kasich, are doing to all of us.

    Bush pussed out – see: after Obama got Osama Dubya made a comment on Special Ops that were not run during the Bush/Cheney regime.  “…I met SEAL Team Six in Afghanistan. They are awesome, skilled, talented and brave,” he added. “I said, ‘I hope you have everything you need. One guy said, ‘We need your permission to go into Pakistan and kick ass.’…” While Dubya contemplated WMD’s, hunting Saddam, and playing “tTop Gun Mr. Mission Accomplished publicity stuntman (On 01 May 2003), bin Laden languished in Pakistan during most of the Bush Cheney regime tenure in office. Dubya 43 lacked the ability to make the effective decisions necessary to issue the orders to the special operations forces that would have allowed them to kill or capture bin Laden.  It’s what happens when incompetent political morons are in control. 

    So sad for the 5k GI’s who were KIA
