Remember the time during the 2012 campaign when Vice President Biden said, “I’ve got a little bumper sticker for you: Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive”? Remember the other 999,999 times he said it? Well, forget all of them. Sure, it was a great line for a campaign rally, but in retrospect, the killing of bin Laden was nothing to brag about, right?
Author, columnist and radio host Tammy Bruce noted one liberal blogger’s second thoughts about President Obama’s “gutsy call”.
Amanda Marcotte agreed with MSNBC’s Alex Wagner on Friday that Americans are now living in a sort of “post-post-9/11 generation” and don’t fear terrorism as they did in the days after Sept. 11, 2001.
“Absolutely,” said Marcotte. “I think that, for instance, killing Osama bin Laden and finding out that he was kind of a feeble old man living in a bunker made it seem a little silly.”
Don’t feminists usually complain that it’s “feeble old men” who are running the government, making women’s health care decisions, and leading the majority of America’s corporations?
