Freshmen and Credit Where It’s Due

Tim Mak reports that only “about a quarter” of freshmen Republicans who have issued statements on bin Laden’s death have given credit to President Obama. Since Mak finds that slightly more Republican freshmen credit Obama (27 percent) than George W. Bush (25 percent), it seems that this is probably less a result of partisan pique than the belief that the military and intelligence community really do deserve the bulk of the credit.

Since Mak is also surveying statements issued by antiwar Republicans, it’s worth noting that Sen. Rand Paul’s statement mostly credits the troops, military leaders, and intelligence community but politely mentions both Bush and Obama.

UPDATE: Ron Paul says he supported bin Laden killing, is “delighted” he’s dead.
