Why it matters

Because we've been told for too long that America can't do anything anymore. We can't build anything. We can't solve major environmental problems. We can't deliver healthcare to our citizens. We can't create meaningful alliances with other nations. We can't compete with China.

We can't, we can't, we can't, we can't, we can't.

Ten years after it began, the hunt for Bin Laden was starting to feel like it would end up as yet another item in the long list of things America can't do.

But we got him.

I'm not sure if it's exactly what candidate Obama had in mind when he first uttered his now famous campaign slogan, but for many, this is the first time in his presidency that those words actually ring true.

Yes we can.
