Arianna Huffington: President's bin Laden ad "despicable"
CBSNews ^ | 4/30/2012

Posted on 04/30/2012 7:13:03 AM PDT by South40

(CBS News) Arianna Huffington, founder and editor-in-chief of the The Huffington Post, called the Obama campaign's decision to tout the assassination of Osama bin Laden in a campaign advertisement "despicable." The ad questions whether presidential candidate Mitt Romney would have ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

"I don't think there should be an ad about that," Huffington said Monday on "CBS This Morning." "I think it's one thing to celebrate the fact that they did such a great job (with television specials). All that is perfectly legitimate. But to turn it into a campaign ad is one of the most despicable things you can do."

It's also what makes politicians and political leaders act irrationally when it comes to matters of war because they're so afraid to be called wimps

We have irrational leaders because of TV commercials?

There is a just released memo from Leon Panetta that shows Obambi had NOTHING TO DO with ‘giving the order’

The pResident was given a set of ‘scenarios’ to approve, if they ever existed.

One of these came to be, so the Admiral in charge of the Seals went ahead with killing OBL based on those standing orders.

They only called Obambi in off the golf course once the operation was underway.

I see that she made this comment while being interviewed by Gayle King. Who is Gayle King? Oh, yeah, I forgot she is BFF with Oprah. No brains, rich friend = get a TV show.

“The ad questions whether presidential candidate Mitt Romney would have ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.”

It’s simply a variation on the 3AM phone call that Hildabeast used when running against hussein. Obama has no record to run on and not one original idea in his fantasy filled head.

I wish Romney would respond to this ad with:

“Hell no I wouldn’t have murdered Osama! He was unarmed, we had a room full of seals and a helicopter in the front yard. I would have drug his ass back to Gitmo, waterboarded him for every bit of intelligence he had, then put him before a military commission and had him hung in public.”

Well what the heck else does the kenyan have to run on? His only other "accomplishment" was to rip off some socialist healthcare program from massachussetts that is going to be tossed out as unConstitutional.

Even the dims are starting to hate Jughead for the economy and NDAA.

Remember how the Rats went apoplectic when Bush used a picture of himself taken on 9-11 in some campaign material?

Guess they changed their minds.

Arianna, like Jimmy Carter, would be comfortable with a Mitt Presidency.

Right you are. Odumbo had little to do with it.

"The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven's hands," he added. That was a reference to Admiral William McRaven, who was in charge of the hunt for Bin Laden as commander of the Joint Special Operations Command.
