Any Obama Praises from Conservatives?

It is like pulling teeth to muster up a simple "Thank You President Obama" from Conservatives. For finding and killing Osama Bin laden, any right-wing praise or admiration for our President is quite short, askewed, sarcastic or redirected to GW Bush. Conservatives have no class.

Washington (CNN) -- For one day at least, conservative voices united in grudging praise of President Barack Obama over the U.S. special forces operation that killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.

From House Speaker John Boehner to Republican Rep. Peter King of New York and, to a lesser degree, even radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, comments from the political right Monday were missing their usual criticism of Obama's leadership to focus on the president's decision to launch the successful mission that took out bin Laden.

Some politics were involved, of course.

Conservatives emphasized that Obama had followed policies launched by former President George W. Bush. In the face of possible cuts to defense spending, they noted the need for continued vigilance in the Afghanistan war as well as on the anti-terrorism front.

At the same time, though, they said it was only fair to give credit where credit is due.

"There are going to be political benefits to the president from this. He deserves it," King, the House Homeland Security Committee chairman, said in an interview with Fox Business. "If this had gone wrong, he would have been hurt very bad politically. It goes right, he should get the benefit of it."

From Limbaugh, the comments sounded positive but contained a load of sarcasm.

"Ladies and gentleman, we need to open the program today by congratulating President Obama," he said in his syndicated daily radio show. "President Obama has done something extremely effective, and when he does, this needs to be pointed out."

According to Limbaugh, Obama's success came from following the policies of Bush.

"We need to never forget that President Obama deserves praise for continuing the policies established by George W. Bush which led to the learning, the acquisition of this intel that led us to the enlarged hut in Pakistan that led to the assassination of bin Laden last night," Limbaugh declared. "Thank God for President Obama. If he had not been there, who knows what would've happened." Link

"Grudging Praise" - this is so true!

If this was a competition, conservatives would be poor losers! 
Just a tinge of recognition for Obama, but ALL praises redirected to Dubya Bush and the Military. They see this as a shared victory, shared credit! 
 
Of course and keep this in mind, if this mission had completely failed compounded with US casualties and lost foreign relations - it would be ALL Obama's fault! No sharing of the blame - its all his fault.

Hell will freeze over if Conservatives are all united in one voice to thank a Liberal President.
