    Romney: Obama shouldn't use bin Laden in campaign
    May 1, 2012

    By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press

    NEW YORK (AP) — Republican Mitt Romney on Tuesday accused President Barack Obama of politicizing the death of Osama bin Laden a year ago but said it was "totally appropriate" for him to claim credit for ordering the U.S. military raid that ended with the terrorist leader's death in a hideout in Pakistan.

    There is nothing wrong with Obama citing one of his acheivments in his ads discussing his...well....acheivments.
    I took issue with the ad questioning whether or not Romney would have done the same.
    It would be like Romney saying in an ad "I learned my lesson as it pertains to humanity to our household pets but I wonder whether or not Mr. Obama would feel the desire to butcher his dog for lunch"

    Barry has every right to laud his willingness to give the nod to take out dirtbag UBL.

    Of course its one of the few things he's actually accomplished so what the hey.

    Don't think it will make a big difference though because its gonna be all about the economy and in that department Barry's an abject failure.

    obama's over buse of the fabrication that he got Bin Laden has had two results. One, it has bored the public to the point where they don't want to hear it anymore. Two, it has become irritating enough to look for the facts, which aren't in his favor.

    Did you take issue with Bush and Romney when they did the same thing to John Kerry?

    The Republicans are in a quiet (and sometimes not so quiet) panic that they have lost their long running advantage over the Democrats on matters of national security and related foreign policy matters,

    and Romney with zero foreign policy credentials is a very poor choice to lead an attempt to reverse that.

    Amen. Romney's foreign policy credentials in now way measure up to Barry's back in '07-'08.

    Man, this place is some of the best free entertainment on the planet!

    Yep.
    It was sleezy and off limits.
    Bush got my vote the first time around....
    He did not get my vote the second time around.

    I certainly remember the little bandaids sold at the RNC with little purple hearts drawn on them. The disrespect to the military and those who wear the REAL purple heart was appalling.

    I didn't like it when "W" used images of 9/11 and I don't want Obama to use the killing of bin Laden as a main object in his campaign either.
