Obama Takes On Navy SEALS: ‘I Don’t Take These Folks Too Seriously’

President Obama said Monday that he isn’t too worried about two groups of military veterans running campaign ads against him.

“You’ve got another who was a tea party candidate in a recent election.”

“This kind of stuff springs up before election time,” Obama said.
