But Koch's hollow remarks about Obama's role in the raid is another story. He told New York Magazine that "all that Obama did was say 'yea or 'nay', we're going to take him out. I don't think he contributed much at all." Koch added that the President's decision was easiest of them all."
Suggesting that the hard work was done by the SEALS," Koch regarded Obama as nothing more than a bystander as the plan and execution unfolded. The cheers from the fringe gallery will be energized by such exclusive insights from their leader. With such important news, it's really too bad that there still aren't some presses around to stop.
But it could be said that Obama's critics were not yet schooled on how else to address the terrorist's demise on a Democratic president's watch. Life is so full of surprises! So we must leap from one conspiracy theory to another to find out which one is the most politically productive. The naysayers obviously haven't sensed the public's relief at hearing the news. Instead, on this and many other issues, the GOP pols will keep spilling out of the Koch vending machines with their sales tags still attached to them.
UPDATE: Sarah Palin hisses that the president has been "pussyfooting" in the days following the attack; Glenn Beck called Obama's visit to Ground Zero "disgusting". Nobody has as yet claimed that Obama has driven up his poll numbers with a corked bat. Not yet.
