      Killed Osama

      After Bush and going into Trump it was a breath of fresh air to have someone that's articulate at the helm.
      He doesn't get credit for ending Don't Ask, Don't Tell: Log Cabin Republicans v. United States of America ended DADT. The DOJ appealed the original judge's decision. Given that the Supreme Court had to rule on gay marriage, I can't figure out why anyone would laud President Obama's gay rights record.

      I figure the Log Cabin Republicans have to be the most reviled group in all of politics. The Democrats figure they're Uncle Toms and the GOP doesn't want them to even be in the room, much less have a seat at the table. There's some irony in that they were the ones who sunk DADT.

          Plus he didn't kill Osama; the intel originated under Bush.

          Nor did he end torture.

          And the performance of his up-funded VA has been terrible.
          Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

            Outside of killing patients for profit, I'm sure the VA has been spectacular.
            Sadly, only one person has been removed from the VA, everyone else involved in that scandal has been left alone as I understand it.

            BO gets the credit for killing Osama cause he was in charge at the time and he did authorize the operation.
            Bush gets credit too, but BO went ahead even though there was a potential of bad results. It was probably the only time he took a risk like that so he gets the credit.

              True, but his people leaking the identity of the SEALs who did the job negates a lot of the credit.

                Agreed.
                And they leaked the name of the pakistani Dr. who helped obtain the DNA that confirmed it was OBL. I believe he is still in prison over there.
                That was also reprehensible.
                And the left worries that Trump isn't mature enough for the office.
                The fact that the BO administration played with the lives of those people in their effort at self congratulation showed just how unready the previous administration was to lead.

                  Exactly.

                        interesting, why would President Trump nominate the current Under Secretary of the VA, i.e. second in command, to be his head of the VA?

                        Maybe things have gotten much better, seems strange to promote the number two guy if things suck.

                        “To talk of many things:
                        Of shoes—and ships—and sealing-wax—
                        Of cabbages—and kings—
                        And why the sea is boiling hot—
                        And whether pigs have wings.”
