Obama 2012: ‘Osama Bin Laden Will Never Again Walk the Face of This Earth. That’s What Change Is.’

At a campaign event this evening at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C., President Obama indicated that he had successfully brought about “change”–an ambiguous 2008 campaign promise–by killing terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden. From the official White House transcript:

And change is keeping one of the first promises I made in 2008 — ending the war in Iraq and bringing our troops home. (Applause.) The war is over and our troops are home. And instead, we refocused our efforts on the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11. And thanks to our brave men and women in uniform, al Qaeda is weaker than it’s ever been, and Osama bin Laden will never again walk the face of this Earth. That’s what change is. (Applause.)

The president also listed Obamacare as a change he was responsible for, though he failed to mention the unpopularity of his signature legislation.

And the president warned that Republicans threaten the “very core of what this country stands for.”
