President Obama Getting "Bar-Be-Qued" For Grandstanding Of Bin Laden

Kobe Bryant trash-talking on the court
One thing most Americans hate more than anything else is a braggart.  Even in this "me", "my", "I" culture we currently live in, folks with a bare minimum of class know it's tacky to  speak about how much money they have, where they reside, what school they attended... or finished from. 

With that said... no wonder millions in bloggersville, and several former Navy Seal team members [http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2137636/SEALs-slam-Obama-using-ammunition-bid-credit-bin-Laden-killing-election-campaign.html] ... and yes, Republican-turned-Democrat, Arianna Huffington of the AOL/Huffington Post are literally Bar-Be-Queing President Obama for his credit-taking and over the top grandstanding on the killing of Osama Bin Laden last year. 

Political cartoonist, Michael Ramirez, brilliantly characterizes how Americans feel about how Obama has overplayed his hand on this one:

Trash-talking in an opponents face after dunking the basketball in a game of 'pick-up".... or dancing in the end-zone/spiking the ball after a touchdown is what immature jocks do to pump up their egos!  This is Not what the leader of the free world should be all about, as it makes him, and the United States, look petty and small.

A team effort... such as what should have been the case in the assassination of international terrorist #1: Bin Laden... and other issues of national security should not be politicized––as they cheapen the honor and integrity of the Presidential Office. 

Shame on President Obama...
