Would Mitt Romney have Ordered bin Laden’s Death?

You have probably seen the Barack Obama campaign commercial by now in which Obama spikes the football again and again wanting his “props” for ordering Seal Team 6 to execute Osama bin Laden.

Which for many was a step too far, especially after the left criticized former President George W. Bush at the mere sight of anything related to 9/11 during his campaign.

But then, after already stepping over the line, Obama had to go one step further in the ad and question whether Mitt Romney would have made the call to kill the terrorist behind the 9/11 tragedy.

I believe Romney’s response was “Even Jimmy Carter would have made that call.”

But the thing that is very revealing is that it would occur to Obama’s campaign to even contemplate such a question. This is a very telling sign that Obama struggled with the decision, which people should find troubling.

Reports were that Obama knew the whereabouts of bin Laden for 5 months before he finally made up his mind to green light the operation.

One Democratic operative offered the defense that they wanted to make sure bin Laden was actually there. And the evidence they had was not even enough to get a search warrant in Chicago. (And we all know how corrupt that city is.)

Obama is perfectly happy to raid Gibson Guitar plants and strip search 4 year olds and Grannies with no evidence at all. And his “drone strikes” would hardly qualify for search warrants either.

No. With Mitt Romney there were two possibilities. Either he would order Osama bin Laden dead, or he would send him to a secret site to extract information and save American lives.

With Obama, there were those two possibilities, but there was also a pretty good chance that his first though was to put bin Laden on trial in New York.

With Romney, there is a less than zero chance of that happening. The same is not true of Obama.

For 5 months Obama struggled with this decision. A decision that was as easy as “do you want fries with that”.

That Obama struggled with this should scare everyone.

The question we need to ask ourselves is, which man would be more likely to want to try bin Laden in a New York court.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
