More Romney Nonsense

via Andrew Sullivan:

"Actually, just look at what Osam, uh, Barack Obama, said just yesterday. Barack Obama calling on radicals, jihadists of all different types, to come together in Iraq. That is the battlefield. That is the central place, he said. Come join us under one banner,"

Now it is clear here that he is intentionally trying to conflate in Osama bin Laden and Barack Obama. Sadly, this is not an isolated instance for Romney or other Republicans. Fox News has been trying to claim that Obama is actually a closet Muslim and a variety of other Republicans have taken to emphasizing Barack Obama's middle name: Hussein. I am sort of surprised Romney stopped with merely swapping Osama for Barack Obama, he could have said something like this "Barack Saddam Husseing Obama bin Laden, Democratic Senator of Al Qaeda."
