    Yep, that tweet didn't age well at all. Trump deserves the same or less credit. Obama would have paid a hefty political price if the Bin Laden raid didn't end in our favor - ESPECIALLY if a bunch of our best warriors died trying. Not so much with Trump, this was an easy operation for him to authorize. He gets credit for doing so but that's as far as it goes.

    I am glad that Delta didn't get micromanaged - I don't think Trump deserves credit for that because I actually don't think he competent enough to know the difference between the Clintonian way and the Bush way. But at least he didn't have John Kerry whispering in his ear.

    The WaPo is taking some much-deserved flack on Twitter this afternoon for this curious headline:



    #WaPoDeathNotices is trending and some of them are pretty funny.

    And now another attempt:

    The Post has since changed the headline to “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, extremist leader of Islamic State, dies at 48.”

    The Onion couldn't have done a better send-up of anti-Trump media.

    Turns out it was a Delta Force hero dog who chased this miserable scum down as he used three of own children to hide behind.

Our revulsion at Trump is causing Americans to ask: How did we get to this place? And how do we get out? That will take time and hard work by well-intentioned people from every corner of American society."

    If that means Malinois - I'd never take the bet. They are the now the preferred canine for military and police. Intelligent, athletic, and courageous!

    Jack plans to send a 'Get Well' card and S-Shape (his favorite dog toy). The dog in question was injured but so far, I haven't seen any reports on the extent of the injuries. As with their lower-ranked human partners, these dogs get cutting-edge medical care so we hope that the hero dog will make a full recovery.

    Was it Trump’s magic wand that turned the Washington Post into a laughingstock?
    I’m beginning to think that hidden somewhere in the White House or Trump Tower there’s a magic wand that the president wields which turns his detractors— old Obama hands, make-believe conservative politicians and commentators, Democrats, and the media, into laughingstocks. If so, this weekend he waved it over the Washington Post.
    I think that's about right. They can't stop themselves.

    American Thinker claims he was released in 2009 by Obama. He was released in 2004.

    I stopped there on the American Thinker piece.
