Obama campaign marks Osama bin Laden raid anniversary with Bill Clinton video

| No Comments

Almost a year since the death of Osama bin Laden, the Obama for America campaign produces a video featuring former President Bill Clinton touting President Barack Obama's tough call to approve the risky raid in Pakistan. A president has "one chance" to get things right, Clinton said in the video.

The video mocks Mitt Romney for saying he would not have spent vast U.S. resources to hunt down one man.


After this was posted, Romney campaign spokesman Andrea Saul said in a statement, "The killing of Osama bin Laden was a momentous day for all Americans and the world, and Governor Romney congratulated the military, our intelligence agencies, and the President.

"It's now sad to see the Obama campaign seek to use an event that unified our country to once again divide us, in order to try to distract voters' attention from the failures of his administration. With 23 million Americans struggling for work, our national debt soaring, and household budgets being squeezed like never before, Mitt Romney is focused on strengthening America at home and abroad."
