How Obama Suckered Romney into His Bin Laden Trap



Mitt Romney fell into President Obama’s trap on Osama Bin Laden, and now the president has closed the noose and made the Republican nominee appear weak on national security.

The Obama campaign set Mitt Romney up days ago by releasing a video of former President Bill Clinton praising President Obama’s decision to go get Bin Laden.

<SNIP>

The video was perfect bait. It featured a Democrat claiming to be tough on national security, Barack Obama doing something that almost every American agrees with, and Bill Clinton. (Republicans have an odd relationship with former President Clinton. They pathologically loathe the man, yet they are irresistibly drawn to everything he says and does).

The bait was on the hook, and sure enough, Mitt Romney couldn’t resist taking it. In a rebuttal to the video Romney said, “Even Jimmy Carter would have given that order.” As the Obama campaign already knew, Jimmy Carter may have given that order, but Mitt Romney was already on record saying that he wouldn’t.

1. "Mitt Romney was already on record saying that he wouldn’t"

does Mittens even REMEMBER what he says? He just sounds like a fucking MORON.

2. Republicans seem to pathologically forget

YouTube and the concept of "social media". Thank goodness for the internets for making sure that they have a harder time covering up their past statements.

3. Lying works for Mittens.


His target audience will believe anything as long as it's anti-Obama, and they pay little attention to reality.

4. While most here know that I'm no big fan of the method and

 

rationale by which Osama was dispatched, I still love watching a trap slam shut. And this was it in spades for afficionadoes of the stiletto-like exposure of hypocrisy and sancimony.

I still do not approve of what Obama and his administration did with regard to Osama, but I cannot help but approve of the way he and his campaign served Romney his ass. Easily the equal of any of LBJ's takedowns, imho.

Bravo! (And thanks for posting).

5. And the way he said it

Like it would have been an easy call, even Jimmy Carter would have done it. The big boys club. LOL! What an ass.

9. Do you know how you can catch a skunk?

Put out rotting fruit, they can smell it from miles away, and they will come looking for it.

So, suckering Romney isn't really all that hard. President Obama just needs to say something that sounds a little "Democratic", and he'll fall for it every time.
