I can hear it now. Obama got bin laden .. What I wan them to defend is his domestic policies. Not the polices that George Bush set up for him(intelligence) and just had to yes or no to the team(seal team 6) that did the ground work overseas and actually went and did the deed.

Romney.

The rest of the GOP field is crap, and the GOP knews it.
The rest of GOP field is not crap. They just all have a glaring hole in their campaign. Perry is Perry so he is out. Paul is too old. Gingrich is Newt Gingrich so comeon now. Santorum doesn't get enough coverage, Herman Cain is a good candidate but when the knives are out Romney will be able to cut him to shreds. Romney is the one candidate that has a pretty solid campaign.

UGH. Please do not bring up anything about Obama got Bin Laden. Pisses me off. Obama hardly had any POLITICAL experience when he was elected. He had even LESS military experience. His advisors and military high-ups do everything for him.

With the approval of the President. That mission would have never occurred without Obama giving the nod.

You would be more than happy to blame him if it turned out to be a disaster.

So he deserves credit for the role he played.

It's almost like he is the Commander in Chief of the Military or something!

As opposed to George W. Bush's massive political experience? By that logic, did you vote for Kerry? Anyone that's been in the combat zone for a second has more military experience then Bush.

Not that it matters. Military experience is not a pre-requisite for being president.

For good reason, some of our worst Presidents were great generals.

Sucks that Newt has Baggage because he is probably the Best Conservative, with the Most Experience out there.
