Oh Brother: New Obama Ad Claims Romney Would Not Have Taken Out Bin Laden

It’s pretty clear by now that any 6 year-old would have ordered the hit on Osama Bin Laden last year. Yet, it took Barack Obama hours, and possibly days, to give the military permission to pull off the attack.

Now Barack Obama in a new web ad claims Mitt Romney wouldn’thave ordered Bin Laden raid.

Oh brother.

It’s all they’ve got.
The Hill reported:

President Obama’s campaign is using Bill Clinton to argue Mitt Romney would not have launched the raid to capture Osama bin Laden last year.

The argument is being made to coincide with the one-year anniversary of bin Laden’s death.

In extended, previously unreleased footage taken from an interview with the former president for the 17-minute pro-Obama film “The Road We’ve Traveled,” the campaign suggests that the presumptive GOP nominee would not have ordered the mission to kill bin Laden.

Related… An admiral, not Barack Obama, controlled the mission.

    Yet it is Biden who is on record as not supporting the decision to take out bin Laden, it was Biden to tried out the new meme about Romney himself in a recent speech.

    Un’ca Joe is not a good foreign policy wonk to listen to, nearly every one of his positions all the way back to the Cold War have been shown to be totally wrong.

    Well, we don’t know about Romney, but we certainly know about Bill Clinton because he STOPPED a couple of attempts to get Bin Laden during his terms as President. They sure picked the most non-credible spokesperson they could for that ad.

    Romney will take out Bin Laden Nov 6 2012.

  • Jim

    Romney, as President, would be on the job when that infamous phone call came at 3AM. So far Obama has been on vacation.

  • JC


    Every time I see this picture I still can’t believe they released it. Obama looks like a skinny, pathetic, scared little boy sitting in a room full of grown men doing real work. Jeez, even Biden looks like a man compared to the president. The people who let this photo go public must be unbelievably tone deaf. I wonder – did Obama personally approved this photo for publication thinking it made him look like a serious and stern leader?

    Obama Ad Claims Romney Would Not Have Taken Out Bin Laden

    hah, as if he did??

    *sigh*, yet another political charade in an election year parade..

    Biden is a liar.

    ‘Today, Time magazine got hold of a memo written by then-CIA head Leon Panetta after he received orders from Barack Obama’s team to greenlight the bin Laden mission. Here’s the text, which summarized the situation:

    Received phone call from Tom Donilon who stated that the President made a decision with regard to AC1 [Abbottabad Compound 1]. The decision is to proceed with the assault.

    The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven’s hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the President for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and if he is not there, to get out. Those instructions were conveyed to Admiral McRaven at approximately 10:45 am.

    This, of course, was the famed “gutsy call.” Here’s what Tom Hanks narrated in Obama’s campaign film, “The Road We’ve Traveled”:

    HANKS: Intelligence reports locating Osama Bin Laden were promising, but inconclusive, and there was internal debate as to what the President should do.

    VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: We sat down in the Situation Room, the entire national security apparatus was in that room, and the President turns to every principal in the room, every secretary, “What do you recommend I do?” And they say, “Well, forty-nine percent chance he’s there, fifty-one … it’s a close call, Mr. President.” As he walked out the room, it dawned on me, he’s all alone. This is his decision. If he was wrong, his Presidency was done. Over.

    Only the memo doesn’t show a gutsy call. It doesn’t show a president willing to take the blame for a mission gone wrong. It shows a CYA maneuver by the White House.’

    What ‘Gutsy Call’?: CIA Memo Reveals Admiral Controlled bin Laden Mission

  • Holly

    According to a report in the Daily Rash, MSNBC host Chris Matthews was startled when Obama admitted to him that killing militant Muslims was more fun than he expected. I guess Obama is now a war time president. http://www.thedailyrash.com/obama-says-killing-muslims-more-fun-than-he-expected

  • NeoKong

    Says the guy who turned down Bin Laden.
    Are we seriously going to listen to Clinton on this issue….?

  • Redwine

    It’s all they’ve got.
    Actually, they have nothing. Comrade Hussein did not make the call to take out Bin Laden. All of the operational decision-making and control were made by Admiral McRaven: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/04/26/Get-bin-laden-memo-CYA

    That the regime would release an ad touting the lie about the “gutsy call” a day after the truth about the operation was revealed only shows how desperate they are.

    Rush is right. They will lose in a landslide. (But we can’t just sit on our butts and wait for it to just happen. Get out and make it work.)

  • tommy mc donnell

    when did wolf blitzer start caring about three thousand americans being killed on 9-11-2001?

    we have had bad presidents before, this is the first time we have one on purpose!

    more than likely Panetta..

    but we’ll never know, heck, we haven’t even seen Obama’s BC, not
    that we need to, as his supposed daddy was a Kenyan Muslim, ergo,

    “A Strong & Secure America”

    That was the sign on the lectern when Biden gave a speech yesterday. I guess that’s their new slogan to replace “Hope & Change”. So the Obama strategy is to go with strong man/military approach. Break out the popcorn and slurpees guys, this is going to be a fun election.

  • Redlite

    I have never seen a coach spike the ball in the end zone after a touchdown. But here we have Barry taking all the credit for taking out Bin Lazy.

    Just another example of Obama ‘voting present”.

    still don’t know what to make of this.. ❓

    Redwine is right, they have nothing. Nothing to run on, no record, no job growth, no deficit/debt reduction. Nothing. All they can do now is make sh*t up.

    oh btw, in case you missed yesterday’s posting..

    Bin Laden’s Family Deported To Saudi Arabia

    [Pakistani authorities deported Osama bin Laden’s three widows and his
    children to Saudi Arabia early Friday, less than a week before the first
    anniversary of the unilateral American raid that killed the al-Qaida leader
    in his hideout in a military town.

    [The departure of the family closed another chapter in an affair that
    cemented Pakistan’s reputation as a hub of Islamist extremism and
    cast doubt on its trustworthiness as a Western ally.]
