Mitt Romney came back hard on Democrats and Barack Obama today. The Republican frontrunner told an audience, “Even Jimmy Carter would have given that order” to kill Osama Bin Laden.
The Politico reported:
Mitt Romney, asked if he would have given the order to go after Osama Bin Laden, as President Obama’s new video and his campaign aides have suggested he wouldn’t have done, per POLITICO’s Ginger Gibson: “Of course, even Jimmy Carter would have given that order.”

The question, which came on a ropeline in Portsmouth, N.H., is one Romney will likely get asked repeatedly. The remark went somewhere that most Republicans haven’t – the criticism has been that Obama deserves credit for the mission, but crossed the line when his team slammed Romney. This is a new level of OBL fallout, a day before the anniversary of his killing.
Obama still hasn’t thanks George W. Bush for the intel that led the CIA to Bin Laden’s hideout.
