Corn on Hardball: Is It Wrong for Obama to Take Credit for Osama Bin Laden’s Death?


Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn and political analyst Ron Reagan joined host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball to discuss why the GOP is outraged at Obama for taking credit, one year later, for the death of Osama bin Laden. Would Republicans be so upset if one of their own was doing something similar? Hint: Just recall George W. Bush’s presidency.
