Skip to comments.Arianna Huffington: Obama's bin Laden Ad 'Despicable'
Posted on 04/30/2012 12:25:09 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Arianna Huffington, founder of the liberal leaning news site The Huffington Post, has criticized the Obama campaign for an ad suggesting that Mitt Romney wouldnt have killed terrorism kingpin Osama bin Laden, calling the move "despicable."
In May 2011, President Barack Obama authorized the raid that did away with the al Qaida leader. But a video ad released by the Obama campaign last week, which included former President Bill Clinton trumpeting Obamas achievement, also had wording which suggested that presumptive GOP presidential nominee Romney might not have made the same decision.
"I don't think there should be an ad about that," Huffington told "CBS This Morning" Monday. "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."
Huffington equated the ad with a Hillary Clinton spot from 2008 that asked, Who do you want answering the phone in the White House, when its 3 a.m. and a problem has arisen. That was a reference to her opponent Obamas inexperience.
