Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and his team were first of potential 2012 presidential contenders out of the gate to congratulate the U.S. intelligence forces for killing Osama bin Laden.

“This is a great victory for lovers of freedom and justice everywhere,” said Romney’s statement, which arrived in mailboxes at 11.52 p.m., only a few minutes after the president finished his announcement.

“Congratulations to our intelligence community, our military and the president. My thoughts are with the families of Osama bin Laden’s many thousands of victims, and the brave servicemen and women who have laid down their lives in pursuit of this murderous terrorist.”

    Thank you, President Obama. Thank you for getting the mastermind of the worst terrorist attack in US history. Thank you for doing what your idiot, incompetent moron predecessor couldn’t do for over 7 years, 7 years after proclaiming “We will get him dead or alive!”, than having the gall and audacity to state less than 1 year later, “We don’t know where Osama bin Laden is. It really doesn’t matter”. Thank you, President Obama.

    And a few salient points: people who hate Obama, for whatever reason, will undoubtedly claim:
    1. It’s not really bin Laden – where’s his birth certificate?
    2. George W. Bush did it – we can attribute anything positive we want to the former Idiot-in-Chief, but talk about his travesties??
    3. Political ploy by Obama.

    Finally, if Obama really hates America and wants it to fail, why would he authorize the killing of a guy like OBL?

      “what your idiot, incompetent moron predecessor ”

      And yet, Obama continued Bush’s policies. So what does that make Obama?
