Romney Neutralizes Bin Laden Card

It took an hour for President Obama to bring up the killing of Osama bin Laden in the third presidential debate. Mitt got to it first! But when Obama got to the topic, he chided Mitt Romney for his position on the matter in 2004, recalling that Romney said, “We shouldn’t move heaven and earth to get one man.” He then told a story about a girl whose father died on 9/11, who told him she now has closure over his death because of the killing. Meanwhile, both Obama and Romney said they believed that Afghanistan will be ready to govern itself by the time troops withdraw in 2014, though Romney clarified that our policy in the area needs to include more than “going after bad guys.”
