    the implication is just that Obama is a grandstander.  They are just trying to diminish one good thing they can't deny Obama did.  They are trying to pee on a feel good moment.  Sadly it will probably work among those who feel more comfortable with Romney in office.

      with people who wouldn't have voted forObama anyway. It wouldn't have worked on Kerry if he'd taken it seriously and hit back fast and hard.

        The Kerry and his medals stuff was more than 30 years in the past.  People could think that maybe, just maybe, Kerry didn't deserve them.  However, the killing of OBL took place just a little more than a year ago.  People remember Obama's announcement and his giving credit to the SEALs.  And, unlike Kerry, Obama can go right to the videro.
