Re: What’s Bill Clinton Doing?

Jonah, aside from the unseemliness of a former president voicing that ad insinuating Romney wouldn’t have killed Osama bin Laden, what about the ridiculousness of getting this particular former president to do it? Throughout the Nineties, bin Laden attacked US targets – military housing, ships, embassies – and Bill Clinton refused to respond. In 2000, after 17 sailors were killed on the USS Cole, Clinton’s Defense Secretary Bill Cohen said the attack “was not sufficiently provocative” to warrant a response.

You’ll have to do better than that, Osama! So he did.

And now Clinton asks us to take his word on the awesome lonely burden of being “the decider”…
