Obama Campaign Ad: One Chance to Make the Right Decision
A new ad from the Obama campaign (featuring Bill Clinton) points out that Mitt Romney is on record saying he would not send troops into Pakistan to “kill one man” — meaning Osama bin Laden.
Meanwhile, an ABC News “gotcha” piece on this ad makes no sense at all: FLASHBACK: Obama Campaign Accused Clinton of Using Bin Laden to ‘Score Political Points’ in 2008.
In a new web video titled “One Chance,” the Obama team features former President Bill Clinton praising Obama for deciding to launch the strike last year. “Why [sic] path would Mitt Romney have taken?” the clip asks.
But four years ago this April, the Obama campaign criticized Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for using Osama bin Laden in a political ad.
There’s a slight difference between using bin Laden’s image for political gain, and pointing out that your administration hunted him down and killed him. One of these things is not like the other.
