I especially like Charlie Rose’s response when she says she agrees with the Romney team about the ad.
First, here’s the Obama ad in question:
Huffington’s response on CBS:
I mentioned this and Romney terrific response to the allegation on Tammy Radio. Here first is the debate moment in 2007 with Romney being asked about that comment specifically and puts it in context:
Here’s audio of Rommey’s perfect response today, perfect level of snark and derision while remaining above it all:
Asked by reporters following a campaign event here whether he would have given the order to go after bin Laden, Romney suggested that any president would have made the same decision as President Obama.
“Of course. Even Jimmy Carter would have given that order,” Romney said, referring to the former Democratic president known for his reluctance to use military force.
Ultimately, the Dumb Bastard in the White House would love to have the political debate be about anything other than the economy. The Romney team has handled this well so far, but they need to make sure the discussion remains about the issue of immediate impact to all of our lives–the financial health of this nation and getting a president in there who knows what he’s doing.
