Democrats - Party of National Security?

“You know there’s something wrong with the kind of job he’s done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.”

-- GOP Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney

Duh, what about how relieved Americans felt when OBL was killed then? Or when we got American soldiers pulled out of Iraq completely? Or when Americans did not get involved in Libya? 

“Every American was relieved the day President Obama gave the order and SEAL Team 6 took out Osama bin Laden,”


But then why is Mitt Romney undermining the importance of Commander in Chief 'calls' made by Obama there? GOP is the party which even blames Obama for drought in USA and of course for the weak economic recovery; would they have spared Obama if OBL raid had failed?

What about Commander in Chief 'calls' made by 'slam dunk' George W. Bush? Why would America had been in the Iraqi 'mess' apart from horrendously wrong decisions made by Bush? And in the end what is it that Mitt Romney offering us apart from better 'decisions'? Of course he is not going to personally generate jobs for us nor fight for us in foreign lands. We all know that is not what Oval Office is for - decisions, decisions and that is it all about.

Oval Office is for making 'right calls' of War and Peace. And facts of last four years speak louder for Obama than what Republicans are ready to accept - Obama is the guy, when time came, made the right calls to protect us. Not just military security alone, but even economic security too despite the hyperbola of his opponents.

So will we hear 'Democrats as the natural party of National Security' next week from Obama? How tables have turned in last few years when GOP could easily 'swift boat' one John Kerry on National Security!
