Veterans for a Strong America, a non-partisan veteran and military support group, is hitting President Obama for "spiking the football" on the one year anniversary of Osama bin Laden's death. The group has published an advertisement showing Obama taking all the credit for the bin Laden killing while explaining that "real heroes don't take credit." The ad also slams former President Bill Clinton for saying if the raid had gone wrong, it would have been horrible for Obama rather than the Navy SEALs who risked their lives to kill bin Laden.
President Obama has spiked the Bin Laden Football so hard that Navy SEALS, retired and active duty, are hammering him over his zealous efforts to take credit for their handiwork.
In response to President Obama hiding behind our troops and taking credit for their actions – we’ve released our newest ad entitled CREDIT.
The ad tells a simple but powerful truth: Our service members sacrifice greatly to protect this nation and deserve the credit for keeping America safe, secure and strong.America knows who deserves the credit for killing Osama Bin Laden - United States Navy SEALs and the American intelligence community. Join with Veterans for a Strong America and let President Obama know who really deserves the credit.
