    Ok, I don't get it.

    Snopes says that the email is false. So, without any "white house interference" where is the "hero to zero" part?

    I think that waaaay too many folks on this forum (and others) are waaaay too ready to blame Obama for any and every thing that happens in the world. Even when there is no possible connection.

    Time to let go of your tantrums and hissy fits.

    There is truth in what you say....Just because he is the worst president we have ever had does not mean he is responsible for every mishap. (I don't know how how that relates to this situation in particular - just MO.)

    I don't think they could have had a seal team on site and ready to engage in less than 24 hours minimum,that would amount to them grabbing their go bags checking out weapons/equipment,boarding aircraft and jumping into the area,and that is after the decision to deploy them

    I'm actually inclined to give the "honors" of that particular distinction to FDR. Keep in mind that in spite of widespread opposition to FDR's policies, there wasn't the same type of "buyer's remorse" we are seeing with our current POTUS.

    There is another reason why FDR gets the honors: every success that Obama enjoys in socializing our country will be thanks to precedent set by that man.

    BTW...success recognitions goes to the people on the line...the failure recognitions go to the people responsible for the line...the way it should be.

    I used to like Snopes.com, but don't put too much stock in them anymore. That doesn't mean the message is true or false. I would just take what they say with a healthy grain of salt. They love Obamah, and are willing to spin (or even lie) to protect him.

    They have drunk the Kool-Aid.
