Treating us like children

Although it is true that many Amurricans think and behave like children, it is no help for The Prez to treat us as such. IN OUR NAME, with our authority, SEALs from JSOC went into another country and killed several men. Own it - in its glory, if glory there be, in its goriness, as it surely is. Jihadists are already angry that we killed UBL, so don't baby us. Don't be George W. Bush, refusing to show pictures of caskets of dead service members - they were dead, whether the caskets were shown or not. We killed bin Laden, whether we want to face the horror or not.

We/I don't need our Prez to be our Big Daddy and protect our sensitivities.
