Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs not clear Romney would have had grit to take out Osama bin Laden

This is the most ridiculous line of attack I have ever heard.  President Obama ordered the kill on bin Laden. Former President Bush would have done it in a heartbeat. There is no doubt former President's Clinton and Bush I would have done the same. I suspect even Jimmy Carter would have made the call. If Mitt Romney had been President when that intelligence come in, he would have made the gutsy call too.

Via Washington Examiner:
President Obama’s re-election team on Sunday claimed presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney lacked the grit to order the killing of Osama bin Laden, in a particularly aggressive attack drawing Republican scorn around the anniversary of the al Qaeda leader’s death.
Asked whether Romney would have approved the same clandestine raid Obama ordered a year ago, when he dispatched a Navy SEALs team to bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan, Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs said, “I don’t think it’s clear that he would.”
