Obama defines and qualifies 'change'

 I am tempted to once again ask the question: "How's that hope and change working out for you?" I am reasonably sure that most Americans are appreciative of the fact that Osama Bin Ladin is dead. I am also reasonably certain that the majority of Americans continue to suffer through a stagnant economy a bleak economic future.

Barack Obama promised many things four years ago, but somehow I can't quite put my finger on his promise to kill Bin Ladin as one of his examples of change. I guess when you have performed as poorly as this man has, you have to grab at straws. and that is certainly what he is doing in my opinion.

And the band plays on and the complicit media allows this type of weak minded assertion to go unchallenged once again.

'Osama Bin Laden Will Never Again Walk the Face of This Earth. That’s What Change Is.'

At a campaign event this evening at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C., President Obama indicated that he had successfully brought about "change"--an ambiguous 2008 campaign promise--by killing terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden. From the official White House transcript:
And change is keeping one of the first promises I made in 2008 -- ending the war in Iraq and bringing our troops home.  (Applause.)  The war is over and our troops are home.  And instead, we refocused our efforts on the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11.  And thanks to our brave men and women in uniform, al Qaeda is weaker than it’s ever been, and Osama bin Laden will never again walk the face of this Earth.  That’s what change is.  (Applause.)
The president also listed Obamacare as a change he was responsible for, though he failed to mention the unpopularity of his signature legislation.
