Romney slams Obama for politicising Bin Laden death
Republican presumptive candidate Mitt Romney has said that he is really disappointed that President Barrack Obama has politicised Osama Bin Laden’s death. Today is the one year anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden by US Navy Seals and the Republicans are not happy that the Obama campaign is exploiting it for political mileage.
Let’s not make it a politically divisive incident
What irks Romney the most is that the Obama campaign questioned in an advert if Romney would have made the same call had he been in the same situation as Obama. Romney’s quote in 2008 that it’s not worth moving mountains to go after Bin Laden is coming back to haunt him now. “Let’s not make the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden a politically divisive event,” Romney said on CBS “This Morning”. “There are plenty of differences between President Obama and myself, but let’s not make up ones based on, well he might not have done this. It’s disappointing and it’s unfortunate.”
Obama has the right to take credit
However Romney did concede that Obama had every right to take credit for making the call when the situation came up. However the fact that Obama was attacking him on that basis was what was disappointing. Romney also said he is confident that he like any other thinking American would have made the same call if they were put in that situation.
