Republican mouthpieces are up in arms that the Obama administration is trying to score political points from the killing of Osama bin Laden.
No Republican ever boasted — prematurely or otherwise — about an accomplished military mission, did they?
But this takes the cake. Mitt Romney, tone deaf as usual said, "even Jimmy Carter" would have given the order to take out the terrorist.
Got it? You can always throw down on the wimp Jimmy Carter.
Even if you're Mitt Romney, who did not do military service, thanks to missionary and academic deferments for five years until a high draft number spared him altogether. Jimmy Carter merely attended the Naval Academy and did six years of active duty on battleships and submarines. Wuss.
