Huffington: Obama Ad ‘Despicable’

The Huffington Post editor said Monday that an Obama-campaign ad questioning whether Mitt Romney would have pulled the trigger on Osama bin Laden was out of bounds. “I think it’s one thing to celebrate the fact that they did such a great job [with television specials],” Ariana Huffington said on CBS’s This Morning. “But to turn it into a campaign ad is one of the most despicable things you can do.” Huffington also said campaign rhetoric questioning the wartime bona fides of candidates may force politicians to adopt more hawkish stances than they normally would to avoid the appearance of being soft on foreign affairs.
