Obama campaign absurdly cites Bin Laden attack

A president who can run on his record talks about his record. If not he talks about anything else.

If he has an absurd argument he sends out Robert Gibbs to make it. Gibbs is following VP Biden's line that the attack on Osama bin Laden was the bravest decision made by an executive in decades… He claims that Mitt Romney would not have made the decision to shoot. This is Baghdad Bob logic… and Robert Gibbs logic.

Washington Times
Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican and Mr. Obama’s challenger in the 2008 presidential race, called the Democrats’ strategy “shameless” and blasted the campaign video as “a cheap political attack ad.” 
“This is the same president who said, after bin Laden was dead, that we shouldn’t ‘spike the ball’ after the touchdown. And now Barack Obama is not only trying to score political points by invoking Osama bin Laden, he is doing a shameless end-zone dance to help himself get re-elected...

"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."
And we forgot... VP Biden was against the attack. ABC News
