Senior Obama campaign strategist Robert Gibbs defended his boss this morning from attacks on the president's economic policies. Gibbs claimed the Romney campaign's only message is: "You didn't clean up our mess fast enough."
In addition to the economy, foreign policy played a big part in the discussion as the one year anniversary of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden approaches. President Obama's campaign released an ad this week featuring former President Bill Clinton that questions whether or not Romney would have made the call to approve the raid. Romney strategist Ed Gillespie accused the president of politicizing the event.
"He took something that was a unifying event for all Americans... and he's managed to turn it into a divisive, partisan, political attack."
