On Matters of the Chief-Executive and Commander-in-Chief

This combination photo made from undated images provided by the Danish Refugee Council shows Dane Poul Hagen Thisted, left, and American Jessica Buchanan. U.S. military forces flew into Somalia in a nighttime raid Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2012 and freed the two hostages while killing nine pirates, officials and a pirate source said.

Matters of the Presidency.......

While without doubt running the last second preparation for his State of the Union speech through his mind and as he walked towards the House Speaker's Platform, President Obama nonetheless complimented his Secretary of Defense for a job well done.

The Commander-in-Chief had apparently given a go ahead to a hostage release raid in Somalia earlier this week. Reminds one of the Correspondence Dinner and the Presidents dispensing of the pesky and irreverent Donald Trump and his birther charade.  The president went about his business last evening and in the days and hours leading up to the raid, while steadfastly going about leadership of the nation. And, that very leadership included devotion to delivery of the most speech of the Presidency.

Huffington Post is reporting on the raid and the President's first indication to the public that something had gone remarkably well that very day.

Mitt Romney can political about the President's golf games, Gingrich can refer to him as a 'food stamps' president, and and Mitch Daniel can politically label him as not 'being up to the job", but the president simply leads on.
