New Obama Ad: Would Mitt Romney Have Given the Order to Take Out Bin Laden? [VIDEO]
The Obama campaign has teamed up with former President Bill Clinton in an ad taking aim at Mitt Romney. The ad basically asks if Mitt Romney would have made the decision Obama did. Clinton is featured in the video telling us why we hire a President, “to make decisions”, and why Obama is the decider. The ad also takes quotes from Romney in the past criticizing money spent to hunt Bin Laden. According to the USA Today:
Vice President Biden also cited the bin Laden raid yesterday in a speech that attacked Romney’s foreign policy. Biden, as well as the campaign ad, noted that Romney had questioned the cost of pursuing bin Laden.
“Thanks to President Obama, bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive,” Biden said. “You have to ask yourself, if Gov. Romney had been president, could he have used the same slogan –- in reverse?”
Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said, “The killing of Osama bin Laden was a momentous day for all Americans and the world, and Gov. Romney congratulated the military, our intelligence agencies and the president.
“It’s now sad to see the Obama campaign seek to use an event that unified our country to once again divide us, in order to try to distract voters’ attention from the failures of his administration,” Saul said.
So what do you think about this? Should the Obama campaign use the death of Bin Laden in the campaign? Is this a fair ad against Romney? You can view the video below.
