    I had honestly forgotten all about this kerfuffle, but ABC News’ Michael Falcone has a long memory, apparently. The Barack Obama campaign objected strongly to the “3 AM phone call” attacks from Hillary Clinton about this time four years ago, as Clinton strung out the primaries and forced Obama to defend his inexperience. When Clinton aired this ad, which included an image of Osama bin Laden, they erupted in indignation — and compared Hillary to George W. Bush:

    The Obama campaign spokesman, Bill Burton, accused the Clinton team of playing “the politics of fear” just like George W. Bush.

    Burton, now the head of the Democratic super PAC, Priorities USA, said at the time: “When Senator Clinton voted with President Bush to authorize the war in Iraq, she made a tragically bad decision that diverted our military from the terrorists who attacked us, and allowed Osama bin Laden to escape and regenerate his terrorist network. It’s ironic that she would borrow the President’s tactics in her own campaign and invoke bin Laden to score political points. We already have a President who plays the politics of fear, and we don’t need another.["]

    Romney would not have killed bin Laden, implies new Obama campaign ad

    Would Mitt Romney have ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden? President Barack Obama's re-election campaign released a new video on Friday that strongly implies that he would not have, using the presumptive Republican nominee's own words against him.

    Ever since Vice President Joe Biden boiled down Obama's 2012 slogan to "bin Laden is dead, GM is alive," it has been clear that the embattled incumbent would not hesitate to use the May 2, 2011, Navy SEAL strike as a political weapon.
