Barack Obama, George W. Bush and a Talmudic Irony

George W. Bush, the cowboy, hunted down and sent Saddam Hussein off for trial, to meet vengeance following the rule of law, followed by a sanctioned hanging.

Barack H. Obama, the moral beacon, ordered a hit on Osama bin Laden, hunted and killed him, no trial, no rule of law, to meet pure raw vengeance, with a bullet to the head.

Possibility one: everyone wants to be someone else.

Possibility two: what we think about our leaders is diametrically wrong.
