Osama? Dang, but ole George W got him at last!

Thomas at Middle of the Freakin’ Road noticed something yesterday. That zany crew at Fox & Friends reported (in their own special fashion) that Bush captured Osama Bin Laden). Steve and Gretchen and that other guy were so proud of him.

I guess in this regard they have been consistent. After all, even though 9/11 took place when Bush was president, they blamed the attacks on Bush’s predecessor, Bill Clinton. So it makes complete sense in Fox World to give credit for the killing of bin Laden to Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, even if he has been out of office for two years.

  2. Andrew Sullivan noted that

    In a speech to mark the death of Osama bin Laden:

    [Sarah] Palin never mentioned President Barack Obama by name — instead saying, “We thank President (George W.) Bush for having made the right calls to set up this victory.”

    No mention of the current commander-in-chief in her Facebook tribute either.
