YOU'VE GOT RIGHT-WING TALKING POINTS!
Yesterday Mitt Romney "inadvertently" used Barack Obama's name while describing an Osama bin Laden videotape -- and Eric Schulzke of the AOL blog Political Machine thinks he spoke the truth:
...is the error that substantively wrong?
...like so much humor, intentional or un, it is funny partly because it rests on a grain of truth. Who is mad as hell that we are in Iraq? Obama and Osama. Who would have us pull out without waiting to stabilize the country? Obama and Osama....
Look, I give props to Obama for having opposed going in. I think he was right, in retrospect. But once we are there, the real question is when and how we get out. He appears to have no answer to this question. At least no answer with which Osama would not agree.
This is acceptable political discourse -- but don't you dare compare Bush to Hitler!
