Response to Grassy Knoll (Original post)

11. This is swift boat all over again

They are "attacking the enemy's strengths." Their goal is to create an environment in which the president cannot claim success for killing OBL, much like 2004, when they succeeded in creating an environment wherein Kerry could not draw the contrast between himself and Bush in re Vietnam.

They are doing this now because this sort of big lie takes time to sink in. They will repeat it over and over again: "Obama is politicizing the death of OBL." They have to do it now so it won't be a new message in November, because, if they do bring it up for the first time in, say, October, it simply serves to remind everyone that Obama got Osama, whereas Willard's biggest foreign policy coup is deciding which countries to offshore American jobs to and where to hide his millions.
