Romney: Obama Shouldn't Use Bin Laden in Campaign

Tuesday, 01 May 2012 03:59 PM

Mitt Romney says President Barack Obama shouldn't use the killing of Osama bin Laden as fodder for negative campaigning.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee spoke to reporters after visiting a New York City fire house that lost 11 men in the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks. Romney was joined by Rudy Giuliani (joo-lee-AH'-nee), who was mayor at the time.

Romney praised Obama for ordering the raid on bin Laden's compound in Pakistan a year ago.

But he says Obama shouldn't use the anniversary to draw distinctions between the two presidential candidates and whether Romney would have given the same order as Obama.

Obama's advisers have pointed to past comments by Romney suggesting he would not have made bid Laden's killing a priority.
