If John McCain would have been elected, he would NOT have had the political support to enter Pakistan and go directly after Bin Laden. The anti-war left and progressive wing of the Democratic Party would have raised a "hue and a cry." Hearing and threats of impeachment would have headlined the pages of the newspapers and been the topic of cries of alarm via NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN etc.
BUT, Obama could. While we conservatives would bemoan the double standard that allows a Democrat to enter Pakistan but not a Republican; we would certainly support Obama sending the troops in. I would think we wouldn't announce our incursion into Pakistan but he would have the national political backing to do it. No Republicans would demand a hearing. And the Democrat left would probably turn a blind-eye with the exception of Cindy Sheehan. The main-stream media would refuse to cover her dissent.
I say, "President Obama; on Jan. 22 send the special ops teams in and lever that Islamic murderer out of his cave. I won't have a word of criticism."
