    I really love people that set out to prove there is no media bias, they are so much fun to toy with. Here is what time is saying about Obama's ad where he gets the guy that dithered away a chance to kill bin Laden to talk about how hard it was to make the decision. They even go so far as to quote what Clinton said about Obama.

    Jon Meacham: Why Barack Obama Owns Osama bin Laden | TIME Ideas | TIME.com

    The problem, he left out two words that change the entire meaning of the sentence.

    “Suppose the Navy SEALs had gone in there and it hadn’t been bin Laden? Suppose they had been captured or killed? The downside would have been horrible for him. But he reasoned, ‘I cannot in good conscience do nothing.’ He took the harder, more honorable path and the one that produced, in my opinion, the more honorable and best result.”

    They then embed the very video they are misquoting right on the same page in the belief that no one will check their source and notice their mistake.

    What's to defend? I think you meant APPLAUD. If you think Clinton dithered, why all the "wag the dog" complaints back then? It's like the Reps wanted OBL to get away! BASTARDS!!!
