As My Mother Would say, "Oh, for fuck's sake!"

It's politics when Obama does it.
.
See - This is politics
.
It's NOT politics when GW Bush does it AND makes it a prime time photo op.
But this - premature and in prime time, that was just straight shooting
.
"Cries" is correct.  As in cry-babies.  And Mittens - even though he says now "anyone" would have made the call - in 2008 he said...
.

Nearly five years ago, then-Senator Barack Obama said that if he were president and had actionable intelligence that high-value al Qaeda targets like Osama bin Laden were within Pakistan, he would take action with or without the cooperation of the Pakistani government—and Mitt Romney slammed him for it:
"I do not concur in the words of Barack Obama in a plan to enter an ally of ours... I don't think those kinds of comments help in this effort to draw more friends to our effort," Romney told reporters on the campaign trail. [...] Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is one of the Republican front-runners, said U.S. troops "shouldn't be sent all over the world." He called Obama's comments "ill-timed" and "ill-considered."
Despite that criticism, Barack Obama kept his promise four years later, giving the order that resulted in the killing of Osama bin Laden. That order carried significant political risk, but it was the right call. Yet now that Obama's position has been vindicated, Mitt Romney is trying to erase history:
Romney on if he'd go after bin Laden: "Even Jimmy Carter would have would have given that order"
— @EmilyABC via Seesmic
If that's true, it's only because Mitt Romney has never been president. And if Mitt Romney had been president in May of 2011, Osama bin Laden would still be alive. It's as simple as that.
