WASHINGTON– Andrew Card, a former advisor for George W. Bush said Preident Obama “has pounded his chest a bit too much” after the assassination of Osama Bin Laden, in an interview with the German newspaper Spiegal.
Card: I think he has pounded his chest a little too much. He can take pride in it, but he does not need to show it so much.
SPIEGEL: He didn’t appear triumphant while announcing bin Laden’s death.
Card: I thought his statement was subdued, but I think his schedule is not subdued. Personally, I think it is premature to go to Ground Zero, in New York. I think my role model in this would be George H. W. Bush, when the Berlin Wall came down in 1989. It was a day to celebrate, but we did not dance on the Wall.
