Now, three quick thoughts:
(1) Some of the initial outrage on Twitter indicated that O’s campaign used actual footage from the Bin Laden raid in the ad, but I don’t think that’s the case. Nevertheless, the grainy night-vision footage is obviously intended to evoke imagery of the Abbottabad mission. Message sent: Don’t forget who was president when we got OBL, America.
(2) After Team Obama’s tawdry and baseless assertions that President Romney wouldn’t have pulled the trigger on bin Laden, it’s hard for me to get too worked up over this. Who knows? Maybe I’ve just become desensitized to their shameless endzone dancing.
