I read with interest recently an article where President Obama accused Mitt Romney of “not going after Bin Laden if given the chance”.
Where this is political fodder, as it was of course taken out of context and not given the full weight of his quote where Romney stated, “Of course we get Osama bin Laden and track him wherever he has to go, and make sure he pays for the outrage he exacted upon America.”
All in all, that was NOT what I found most interesting. It was Obama’s quote about being held accountable to your prior statements.
“I’d just recommend that everybody take a look at people’s previous statements,” Obama said Monday, during a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda. “I assume that people meant what they said when they said it.”
If that is the case, I wonder how “that” comment will come back to bite Mr. Obama?
He has made a LONG list of comments, including but not limited to;
1- The rate of unemployment not going above 8%
2- His comment about George Bush being unpatriotic for his accumulation of debt
3- His closing of Gitmo
And the list goes on and on.
In this world of political hypocrisy, you would think people would be more careful with what they say.
