So much for wondering if Team Obama would take the high road and chill on the Bin Laden braggadocio as we near the one-year anniversary of the killing of the man who plotted the worst terrorist attack on American soil.

Hard to blame them for milking the Bin Laden thing like a dairy cow though — it’s almost all they’ve got in the way of positive tangible results. Get used to it, because you’ll hear about it a thousand more times:

A year after authorizing the mission that killed Osama bin Laden, President Obama and his election team are making it an election issue.

The Obama election team has a new ad in which former president Bill Clinton talks about the risks Obama took in ordering the mission that took place on May 2 of last year.

The ad also asks: “What path would Mitt Romney have taken?”

Romney aides said the Obama team is politicizing a military triumph that all Americans can be proud of.

Vice President Biden also cited the bin Laden raid yesterday in a speech that attacked Romney’s foreign policy. Biden, as well as the campaign ad, noted that Romney had questioned the cost of pursuing bin Laden.

In the broader picture, it’s funny how Democrats are campaigning by pretending the Republicans are the party of defense doves and high taxes.

Probably a good decision by the spot’s director to edit out the part where Joe Biden said “Not only did President Obama kill Bin Laden, but he ate his f*#cking dog too!”


Bill Clinton is featured rather prominently in that. Didn’t Bubba reportedly pass up on a shot at Bin Laden back in ’98?

By the way, the Romney quote Team Obama uses there is taken wildly out of context, which is odd coming from the side of the aisle that always demands full context. Gutsy call!

Update: So who actually made that gutsy call, anyway?

    It is reasonable to assume that even Jimmy Carter would have taken the shot if he had been given the same set of circumstances.

    Obummer was backed into a corner. There was no way he could have NOT made that call and kept any credibility as CiC. The way I heard it, Panetta forced his hand.

    Whoa, let me sit back a moment !

    You mean Panetta did one thing right as well ?

    A shot that would have ignominiously landed somewhere in the desert of Iran next to a burned out hulk of some foreign object.

    Sounds plausible because, other than give his baby mama an exit visa, Zero has done few things for the benefit of the country, but we may have to wait for the tell-all book to find out for sure.

    I didn't know Romney had a foreign policy yet. Biden is the gift that keeps on giving.

    From what I have heard, Obama said he needed to sleep on it and left for 12 hours before given the green light. Makes you wonder why it would take 12 hours to make the "gutsy call".

    It is not just Romney that Obama's campaign is attacking. Now they are attacking people who donate to Romney. In a new Obama ad they have singled out 8 private ciitizens who gave to Romney:

    His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for "betting against America," and accuses you of having a "less-than-reputable" record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.

    “Politics is rough, but a president has obligations that transcend those of a candidate. He swore an oath to protect and defend a Constitution that gives every American the right to partake in democracy, free of fear of government intimidation or disfavored treatment. If Mr. Obama isn't going to act like a president, he bolsters the argument that he doesn't deserve to be one.”

    A gutsier call would have been to tazer bin Laden, and have him sitting at the bottom of some well, until he decided to answer some questions.

  11. SignPainterGuy on April 27th, 2012 8:25 pm

    Ha ha ! After watching "Silence of the Lambs" and fully understanding what is meant by, "He rubs on the lotion !"

    Ozero's true stripes are glaring now. What he has posted on his campaign website is purely disgusting. How low can he go? We will see – every day brings a new and low life tactic.

    Once again – he proves he is only pResident of his Marxist supporters and the rest of us be damned.

  13. jeffythequick on April 27th, 2012 10:57 pm

    and to think…

    There's only 193 days left!

    Think of the opportunities he has to lower himself!

  14. jeffythequick on April 28th, 2012 11:49 am

    You know, I was thinking about this…

    It's not really a gutsy call if 99.99% of the (normal) people in the country would have done the same thing.

  15. SignPainterGuy on April 28th, 2012 3:14 pm

    Somehow, I`m neither impressed nor pleased that that makes him one of us or us one like him !

    As a result, very often not promptly processed subconscious childhood fears are preparing quite a fertile ground for the formation of a variety of phobias in adulthood.
