Obama is running an anti-Romney advertisement suggesting that Romney wouldn't have been as gutsy as Obama in regard to giving the OK to the Osama bin Laden hit. Click this USAtoday.com link to watch it.
But we could also put those drone kills Obama has overseen into that same package.
So basically, he's trying to run to the right of Republicans on the war on terror. To whom is this advertising directed? Surely Democrats aren't impressed with this. So it has to be those people who claim to be independent if anyone can actually be independent after all President Obama has subjected us to.
What is remarkable is that Democrats acquiesce in this advertisement. If a Republican authorized the bin Laden hit and shrugged off the dead family members, or if a Republican had authorized the assault of the soulless drones sent to kill unknown targets along with any nearby civilians, Democrats would be screaming bloody murder, just as they did during the Bush administration. It's all partisan politics, and it's so transparent.
What this does is confirm what others have said much more eloquently. That noisy anti-war effort up to the November 2008 election wasn't really anti war. It was merely anti Republican.
