Would Mitt Romney have ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden? President Barack Obama's reelection campaign released a new video on Friday that strongly implies that he would not have, using the presumptive Republican nominee's own words against him.
Ever since Vice President Joe Biden boiled down Obama's 2012 slogan to "bin Laden is dead, GM is alive," it has been clear that the embattled incumbent would not hesitate to use the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL strike as a political weapon.
The video, taken from footage shot for Obama's 17-minute campaign commercial "The Road We've Traveled," opens with the message "the Commander-in-Chief gets one chance to make the right decision" and turns to former president Bill Clinton for validation. "That's one thing George Bush said that was right: The president is the decider in chief. Nobody can make that decision for you."
"Look, he knew what would happen," says Clinton. "Suppose the Navy Seals had gone in there and it hadn't been bin Laden. Suppose they had been captured or killed. The downside would have been horrible for him, but he reasoned 'I cannot in good conscience do nothing.' He took the harder and the more honorable path and the one that produced in my opinion the best result," he says, amid images including a photograph of New York City firefighters cheering the news of bin Laden's death.
"Which path would Mitt Romney have taken?" asks the onscreen text. The video recalls Romney's contention, in an April 2007 interview with the Associated Press, that Americans will not be markedly safer if bin Laden were killed and that "it's not worth moving heaven and earth spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person."

I’ve yet to see any proof that the Obama regime killed Osama.
Who the hell do the democRats think they’er fooling?Obama had nothing to do with the killing of Bin Ladin.that guy is too much of a coward to wear the uniform of a member of the U.S. Military.
It’s Truely an embarassment having this guy in command of our troops.
Obama didn’t kill Osama. At best he had his corpse thawed out and dumped at sea for political advantage.
Most of America knows Obama has no military credibility what-so-ever, so this won’t produce the results he’s looking for. And to Romney’s credit, his response was perfect: Obama is trying once again to be divisive in a time of high unemployment, stagnant wages, etc.
Another swing, another miss for our Dear Leader.
We don’t even know if BHO killed OBL.
Obama and his gang just can't give the credit to those who earned it and deserve it.
Unfortunately, Romney doesn’t make it hard to do.
If 0bama killed Osama Bin Laden, then Nixon walked on the moon.
Bush had everything in play for the raid that killed Osama bin Laden and Obama only had to give the ok.
Obama’s nothing but a credit whore.
Getting to the right of Romney is no great task, and requires no great effort.
Still, as Democrats they will most likely screw it up somehow, as they cannot help but tell easily exposed lies.
Or ordered him killed.
“Romney’s not a killer like ME.”
My mind automatically converts that to Government Motors now so they've lost that too with me.
Will wonders never cease. The peace preaching liberals bragging about killing someone who was targeted by a Republican.
How many idiots are going to fall for this.....0bama did nothing but step out of the way......Besides any sitting/golfing President would have given the OK....
Romney probably wouldn’t have ordered the murder of the dead Osama and I don’t think he would have ordered the murder of Seal Team 6 either.
