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?
