As for the killing of Osama bin Laden, Mr. Obama did what virtually any commander in chief would have done in the same situation. Even President Bill Clinton says in the film “that’s the call I would have made.” For this to be portrayed as the epic achievement of the first term tells you how bare the White House cupboards are.

Karl Rove: Why is everyone making a big deal out of this Osama bin Laden killing thing? [Washington Post, sourcing Wall Street Journal] (via producermatthew)

Note: As the Post points out, Bill Clinton’s quote in the film is “He took the harder and the more honorable path. When I saw what had happened I thought to myself, ‘I hope that’s the call I would have made.’” Which is, you know, way different than what Rove implies.
