Come for the Politics, Stay for the Pathologies

Congratulations, Mr. Obama.

We’re pleased that your “gutsy” decision (Where did I hear that phrase? Oh yeah - everywhere.) resulted in the take down of OBL, one of the worst terrorists and mass murderers of all time. A shame, though, that the President hadn’t been a bit more gracious in acknowledging how he got to this rodeo.

And ironic that he could have taken a lesson in graciousness from the the most reviled Vice President of all time:

 Dick Cheney said he gives President Obama "high marks" for the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, telling Fox News Sunday, "I think he handled it well."

Graciousness. It’s a pretty basic characteristic of effective leaders.
