“Shame on Barack Obama for diminishing the memory of September 11th and the killing of Osama bin Laden by turning it into a cheap political attack ad. This is the same President who once criticized Hillary Clinton for invoking bin Laden ‘to score political points.’
“This is the same President who said, after bin Laden was dead, that we shouldn’t ‘spike the ball’ after the touchdown. And now Barack Obama is not only trying to score political points by invoking Osama bin Laden, he is doing a shameless end-zone dance to help himself get reelected.
“No one disputes that the President deserves credit for ordering the raid, but to politicize it in this way is the height of hypocrisy.” Senator John McCain
Funny, I don’t remember McCain condemning the Bush/Giuliani/Republican exploitation of 9/11 as a means to illegally invade and occupy Iraq or to use 9/11 imagery in a 2008 pro-McCain TV commercial. Hell, McCain’s party exploited everything 9/11-related for eight years and McCain’s former running mate invoked terrorism more times than we can accurately count.
