The Obama campaign went up with a video on the Osama Bin Laden raid on Friday in which they strongly suggested that Mitt Romney would not have made the same call, noting quotes from 2007 and 2008 in which he minimized the importance of catching the terrorist leader and chided then-candidate Obama for suggesting America send troops into Pakistan if necessary to catch him. Now Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul is pushing back, accusing the campaign of trying to "divide" Americans and change the subject from the economy.
“The killing of Osama bin Laden was a momentous day for all Americans and the world, and Governor Romney congratulated the military, our intelligence agencies, and the President," Saul said in a statement. "It's now sad to see the Obama campaign seek to use an event that unified our country to once again divide us, in order to try to distract voters' attention from the failures of his administration. With 23 million Americans struggling for work, our national debt soaring, and household budgets being squeezed like never before, Mitt Romney is focused on strengthening America at home and abroad.”
