In the same week, when President Obama had to show his long form birth certificate to shut up the birthers including Trump and Palin, the Obama administration hunted and killed Osama bin Laden. Justice has been done for bin Laden. I hope the same will be done for President Obama. Undoubtedly, some Americans will still come up with ways to discredit the President, in small and petty ways, like looking for his college grades. This is a time for our country to come together and get behind our president. George W. Bush promised to hunt down bin Laden and kill him where he was found. But, President Obama has done what 3 presidential administrations have tried to do, as far back as President Clinton.
We all remember where we were on September 11. 2001 and the attacks on our country. Now, people can remember where we were when we heard that bin Laden was killed on May 1. Scenes from New York at the World Trade Center and outside the White House erupted with jubilant crowds crying “USA, USA” and singing My Country Tis of Thee show the spirit of what this means to America. In the early morning hours of Monday, 2500 persons gathered outside the White House to show support for the President. This is a day for all Americans to be proud of our country and our President. It is my hope that we will unite as a country behind our President.
