After seeing the new Obama documentary (or rather, propaganda film), it became obvious that the death of Osama bin Laden will become a rallying cry on the campaign trail. And if you needed confirmation, you need to look no further than a fundraiser with Joe Biden on Monday night where he made quite the incredible statement.
"You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan," Biden said of the bin Laden raid, according to the pool report. "Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was there.
"Do any one of you have a doubt that if that raid failed that this guy would be a one-term president?
"This guy is willing to do the right thing and risk losing."
He added later: "Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive," he said, according to the pool report. "Think about it."
There's a lot in there, including a one-term proposition without the bin Laden killing.
Even the Huffington Post found the statement a little over-the-top.
"Without taking anything away from the quite dangerous raid to get bin Laden, there are other commander-in-chief calls that could compete for historical audaciousness," HuffPo's Sam Stein wrote. "Biden's penchant for rhetorical flair may have been at work."
