In NH, Romney praises Obama for bin Laden’s death
(Ignores Pres. Bush and VP Cheney)


NASHUA, N.H. — Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney
says President Barack Obama deserves credit for authorizing
the military operation that resulted in Osama bin Laden’s death.

Before starting a round-table discussion with New Hampshire
business owners today, Romney thanked Obama,
U.S. military forces and the intelligence community
for finding and killing the mastermind
behind the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

And that is the reason he will never be the GOP candidate. He is too much like his new idol.

Not that he was getting it.

You betcha.


Milt Romney (The Magic RINO and Poser):

"I also think it's important for us to nod to the president when he's right," Romney said....
Romney, who spoke at a dinner for the National Republican Senatorial Committee,
said he's pleased with the president's plans to "finish the job" in Iraq and Afghanistan
-- lines that drew applause from the partisan audience. He also applauded the president
for standing up to the auto industry.
"I hope he continues to be tough ....The former businessman even offered faint praise for
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, saying that after a series of initial missteps,
"I think he's finally getting close to the right answer."

Doesn't even thank the troops.

This jackass gets the nomination I'm staying home - and I don't care if he picks a Pence or a Bachmann for VP. Too much is at stake to play the lesser of the two evils game.

Here is more evidence that obama was escorted off golf course to go to meeting already underway..[it takes two hours to play 9 holes and article says he was there 3 hours]. If he had been involved, he would have left earlier and changed shoes/clothing before sitting in the corner chair at meeting room.....[from yahoo article]....
Come Sunday, Obama headed for the Andrews Air Force Base golf course, as he does on many weekends when the weather is nice. But he only played nine holes, instead of his customary 18, leaving after about three hours. The reporters who accompany him on public outings didn’t think anything was amiss and thought the chilly, rainy weather played into the president’s decision to leave several hours earlier than usual.

What they didn’t know was that Obama was heading back for that final meeting on the bin Laden operation.

In retrospect, there were a few meager clues that something may have been going on. Take the golf shoes in the Oval Office, for example. Photos of Obama walking up the path to his office also showed him with a tense look and clenched jaw.

All became clear when Obama announced shortly before midnight Sunday that bin Laden had been killed at the hands of U.S. forces.

I don’t necessarily have a problem with giving Obama some credit. Romney should give the Bush team kudos as well, but this guy is like a lot of other Republicans, they just don’t think things out before opening their yap.

Bush’s statement was very good.

Most of my kudos are directed at the boots on the ground. Our guys did us proud. At least Romney got that part right.

Romney should point out that Obama just did what he said he’d never do (in the campaign). Sending secret hit squads into foreign countries to assassinate people?

If Romney gets the nomination it’s 4 (or more) years of The 0ne.

this romney is a complete moron and deeply unelectable clown.

he praises a soros puppet who took a day off so soros could run poll figures for 16 hours before he was told to say yes.

we don't need another nice loser like Dole and McCain.

Romney is a suede shoe salesman. Romney care put the kaibosh on high-level political hopes and more. He'll never be the Nom. Joe Smith and the whole bogus mormon deal. Let's get real.

I congratulate GW and ALL he set forth in motion to capture the bad guys. I also thank Pres Obama for carrying through with the mission. Greatness. Give props where props are due. Can't wait 'till we see ALL the data from the confiscated data.

God Bless the Special Ops; the Seals the real work on the ground. Best News of the decade.

Hey, I can’t wait until Obama is out of office but, Zero should be given a lot of credit, this could have went down like Carter’s disaster. Then the freepers who don’t give Obama credit now, would really have a field day.

I’m a conservative because I love the Truth!

Good Job President Obama and Good job CIA and Navy Seals!

“If Romney gets the nomination it’s 4 (or more) years of The 0ne.”

At which time the machine ticket could well be Jeb Bush - Marco Rubio. Romney is the perfect ringer to throw an election, just as McCain was.

Very much agree. Give credit where credit is due. Thank you GW for setting everything in motion to remove terrorism from the World and to President Obama for keeping focused on the goal.

I will never vote for that poor excuse of a man - I had far too much of his socialism in Massachusetts.

We need to reverse direction, not go with the flow, and Romney goes with the flow...he is no leader and he is no conservative. He is a big government Republican and unfortunately that seems to be what all the establishment Republicans are.

I believe Obama will be going down with the ship during 2013-2016, if we don't get a real conservative nominated. I will not vote for big government, ever.

I don’t necessarily have a problem with giving Obama some credit.

I agree. I think that Romney should have said something like this:

I thank President Obama for continuing to execute the plan that President Bush had formulated to eliminate this threat to national security. The real credit goes to the members of Navy Seal Team VI who put their lives on the line to complete this mission.

While would love to add a snarky line about the Seal Team being willing to risk more than nine holes of golf, I would resist.

I'm no fan of Mitt, but he's playing to a dumbed-down audience with an inflated sense of their own importance.

New Hampshire imagines themselves as far more important than they really are.

They not only allow RINOs, but independents to vote in their pissant primary.

I have more respect for candidates who simply ignore New Hampshire and Iowa and take their campaigns to a real state like South Carolina. Like Herman Cain.
