From the CNN Article:

"Romney’s restraint throughout the day showed a different side of the Republican contender. Gone were his usual pointed complaints about the president’s foreign policy. By appearances, he seemed to be letting the president have his moment."

Smart by Romney. CNN says Romney played is safe; however, I have to disagree and say let Obama get some credit for a sucessful kill of bin Laden. Plus, the President was overseas.

Also, from the CNN piece:

"Romney made no mention of the new security agreement that was signed by the president and Afghan leader Hamid Karzai exactly one year after the killing of Osama bin Laden."

New "security agreement"?????

Oh boy! It sounds like BILLIONS MORE being drained out of the empty US Treasury. Let them take care of their own problems.
