SAY WHAT? Osama bin Laden's Death Secures Obama 2012 Win?

Did the assassination of Osama bin Laden secure a second term for President Obama? That's the prevailing wisdom among ... the ladies of "The View." So take that as you will.

Barbara Walters, in particular, thought that the news spelled certain doom for any potential GOP candidates.

"I would hate now to be a Republican candidate thinking of running," she said.

Not everyone joined in on the Obama praise-a-thon. Lone Conservative, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, told her co-hosts, "Wait a minute. I think it is insane to politicize this event right now and I refuse to partake in that."

Imagine that!

    Haha. Man I hate that show. How predictable. Go figure the lone conservative has the only ounce of sense in that looney bunch of liberal women.

    All the polling places aren't even giving him a bump.

    Cooky women that rely on the let's say it over and over. Say it so more.. people will believe. I am not sure anyone watches those wackos.

    What was that quote? Well, something like it is "It's the economy."

    Question for Ms. Walters: Didn't you blame President Bush and his cronyism with the increase in gas prices during his administration? Oh, yes, and just how much oil have we taken from Iraq (that one is easy; none, zero, nada!)

    Yeah right... I honestly think the Economy will biggest issue in this election... People started to lose their jobs at the end of the Bush admin... and there are still a ton of people out of work and no end in sight... we have inflation going through the roof along with gas prices... and 1 in 7 on food stamps...

    BTW, why are we taking political commentary from those bitter old biddies from The View? The only view that matters to them is their own and most of the time they live in a world of their own delusions... :-/

    Not real sure what show this is you are talking about. I do know the women you refer to and wouldn't listen to anything they had to say (maybe why I am not familiar with the show)
    Obama had so little to do with the operation to get OBL. His status has not changed one iota with me nor any level headed american citizen. He is a lousy one term occupier of the White House. His greatest accomlishment to date is the fact he occupied the white House when OBL was caught.
    2012 he is gone and can I get a big AMEN!

    Dweem on Baba Wawa... I will say one thing, had Obama not got Osama it would have assured his defeat. He had to go get him. President Bush put the means in place to get Osama and when it all came together President Obama HAD to act or the GOP would have buried him.

    How stupid. Will Bin Laden's death change the fact that gas is almost $4 a gallon (over $6 in Hawaii)? That the huge unemployment number is rising again? The fact that food prices are skyrocketing and show no signs of easing? The fact that the Dems are going to bankrupt the country?

    Too stupid to live. The Bin Laden thing scored him a 1 point bump in his ratings. The economy will end his career. That and when the Bin Ladens DNA gets compared to his and they are found to be brothers.

    That was the most stupid remark this bimbo has ever said in private or public, totally lost it in my opinion. The election is over a year away, and this Bin Laden termination is going to be remembered when the country is bankrupt, facing far worse situation than great depression, and people are going to give a $hit about Bin Laden? Egads, I have to laugh over that comment, total idiotic remark. Hey bimbo, it is all about jobs, deficit reduction, collapsing dollar, worse terrorist attacks, not a continued effort of hunting down Bin Laden and finally terminating him. It is time to hang it up bawbwa, that was the most stupid thing you have ever said, and you have said many over the years.

    It will be a bump in his approval ratings for awhile, then, everyone will remember again what he's about and the approval ratings will dip back down again as he continues on his merry way of more and more taxes and more and more government intrusion into the private citizen lives.

    The talking heads are saying a bunch of trash as usual. It is only a bump and it won't last because we had the same problems we had before it happened, and with gas prices they are due to get even worse (again) and we will probably lose any small gains we had (and I do mean SMALL).
