Team Obama is now acting on the same wrongheaded, hyperpartisan impulses that have led many conservatives to downplay or detract from Obama's role in the original raid. It is almost as though the president's campaign has forgotten the famous “3 a.m.” ad from the 2008 presidential campaign, in which Hillary Clinton tried to sow doubts about Obama's leadership and aptitude. Obama's spokesman, Bill Burton, responded indignantly, comparing Mrs. Clinton to the occupant of the White House at the time, George W. Bush: “It's ironic that she would borrow the president's tactics in her own campaign and invoke bin Laden to score political points,” Burton said. “We already have a president who plays the politics of fear, and we don't need another.”
No, but it looks like we got one after all.
