Romney: Címon, even Jimmy Carter would have given the order to take out Bin Laden

A hard jab at O that has the added benefit of being true. Jimmeh gave the order for Operation Eagle Claw; why wouldn’t he give the order to liquidate OBL? The politics of counterterrorism being what they are, it’s easier for a president to err on the side of aggression than passivity. If Obama had sent in the SEALs and things had gone wrong, it would have been embarrassing and politically damaging but O could always plead that his motives were pure and that he’d been duly diligent. He was after Public Enemy Number One, he had decent intel, and he’d assigned the best troops in the world to the mission. By 2011, respecting Pakistan’s sovereignty on something like this was pure folly given the depth of ISI’s treachery in Afghanistan for the past 10 years. In fact, here’s a sensational tidbit about the raid buried in Newsweek’s new story on the hunt for Zawahiri:

Jimmy Carter would have helped build OBL’s Pakistan Mansion through his volunteer work for Habitat for Hamas.

Obama is acting desperate. This guy is on a power trip.
Sure doesn’t look like much of the tough guy he is trying to convince everyone he is.

I can’t believe how much Democrats and the MSM are pushing this anniversary of getting Bin Laden.

The President made the right call on this. And a stopped clock is right twice a day. There are so many other issues to talk about. Bin Laden is dead. Check. Now let’s move on. Obama was right on this, but he’s wrong on a hundred other things. Let’s set up the scoreboard and see where things stand.

I think the real question is weather or not Clinton would have given the order.

(I think there’s a really good chance the answer is no...)

Romney should have said

"Not only would I have given the order for the raid,
I would also have given the order for approval for the Keystone pipeline,
which Obama has refused to do even though it would lower gas prices
and create thousand of jobs."

Careful; Michelle might have to kick your ass for saying such a thing...

I think you answered your own question.

I think the real question is why did they sit on the information and why did they finally execute the order the day that it was shown that the White House release of the COLB was a fraud?

Clinton passed on the order twice. Couldn’t decide until it was too late.

Hillary or Bill? Bill gave the order to launch some tomahawks at bin Laden after the 1993 WTC attack, or was it during Lewinski's testimony, but he was more of a launch a few missles into a tent kind of commander, not a go in with a SEAL team type.

Has Obama even held a gun, let alone fire one?

If the Commiecrats hadn’t politicized waterboarding they could have captured him and destroyed their entire structure.
