Top Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs defended a new ad which argues Mitt Romney would not have launched the raid to capture Osama bin Laden last year.
Gibbs, said the advertisement featuring President Bill Clinton and questioning whether Romney would have ordered the mission to kill bin Laden, one year after the raid, was not over the line.
Look, just a few years ago. President Obama, then a candidate said in a speech that if we had actionable intelligence of a high value target in Pakistan wed go in and get that high value target, said Gibbs on NBCs Meet the Press on Sunday. Mitt Romney said that was foolish, he wouldnt do such a thing. They wouldnt move heaven and earth to get Osama bin Laden.
The ad in question uses footage of from an interview with Clinton for the 17-minute pro-Obama film The Road Weve Traveled. [Obama] took the harder, and the more honorable path, Clinton says in the featured clip, referring to the decision to authorize the strike in Pakistan to capture bin Laden.. "He had to decide. And that's what you hire the president to do. You hire the president to make the calls when no one else can do it."

Democrats lie all the time, so why should this ploy surprise anyone?
I recall reading somewhere that the CIA knew Bin Laden was “hiding” in Pakistan a year before others stepped in to give the order to strike (not you, Barry). Then again, I still don’t believe that it was Bin Laden who was killed. Call me crazy, but there was no Proof of Life or Death for UBL. We are supposed to go on the word of surviving companions/wives???
Demented Democrat Syndrome (DDS) strikes again!
DDS victim Gibbs forgot the Democrat meme regarding “Romney likes to fire people.” Ben Laden got the ultimate ‘pink slip’ and Gibbs thinks Romney would hesitate a New York moment to issue such a command?
DDS for certain. Call the Waaaaahmbulance!
