Osama bin Laden is dead.
Barack Obama has slain the boogeyman. A moving orgy of patriotism is breaking out across the Obamanation. This moment is certain to go down in history as the highwater mark of the Obama presidency.
Good for you, Barack Obama.
You have avenged the 9/11 attacks. Osama bin Laden is burning in Hell. America has won the War on Terror. The boogeyman is lying dead at your feet. This is your moment of triumph.
A few thoughts:
(1) First, I am glad that Osama bin Laden is no longer walking the earth. He deserved to die for his crimes. Justice has been served. Good riddance.
(2) Second, the emotional outburst of American patriotism which is now spreading across the nation must be properly seen as a moment of closure. The War on Terror is over.
(3) Third, the universal cry to “bring the boys home” is already going out across the nation. We have always supported bringing the troops home.
(4) Fourth, after this brief outburst of patriotism runs its course, foreign policy will recede even further into the background and domestic issues like gas prices and the economy will become even more important than they were before.
(5) Fifth, by killing the arch enemy of America and the Free World, Barack Obama has unintentionally pulled the single most important thread that united Americans and sustained their commitment to military interventions in the Middle East.
A few questions:
(1) Now that Osama bin Laden is dead, will Americans continue to support the American military presence in Libya, Afghanistan, and Iraq?
(2) Now that Osama bin Laden is dead, 9/11 is avenged, and the War on Terror is over, what is America without a common enemy?
The wild spontaneous celebrations now going on at the White House and Ground Zero only shows just how important hatred of Osama bin Laden – the boogeyman – was to America’s national identity. All that is over now.
Great job on this one, Barack Obama. Have a beer on me tonight.
It is party time!
Now playing at the OD bar: beer on tap and patriotic songs!!!
Discussion Question: Who will be cast as the boogeyman in The Boogeyman: The Resurrection?
