Anniversary turning into presidential campaign issue
Tuesday is the one year anniversary of the day the US finally got its most wanted man. A year ago a Navy Seal’s raid approved by President Barrack Obama caught Osama bin Laden in Pakistan and killed him. Now the Obama campaign is looking to profit from it and the Republicans are not happy about it. They are accusing the Obama administration of turning the anniversary into a presidential campaign issue and exploiting what they believe is a non partisan event.
“Osama bin Laden no longer walks on this planet today because of that brave decision and the brave actions by the men and women in our military,” senior Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs on Sunday said in an interview on NBC. “And quite frankly, Mitt Romney said it was a foolish thing to do a few years ago.”
Exploiting non partisan victory
However the Republican’s are not happy with this line of campaigning as they argue that the death of Osama Bin Laden was a non partisan victory for the country however the Obama campaign is unjustly exploiting it. “This is one of the reasons President Obama has become one of the most divisive presidents in American history,” senior Romney campaign adviser Ed Gillespie also said on NBC. “He’s managed to turn it into a divisive, partisan political attack.”
