With his dad polling behind in a bunch of states, the spawn does drift far from the roe.

Before his death, Osama bin Laden wanted to kill President Obama in part because he thought Vice President Joe Biden was “unprepared” to serve as president, according to newly declassified documents first reviewed by the Washington Post.
The al Qaeda leader explained the rationale for targeting aircraft carrying Mr. Obama and General David Petraeus in documents taken from bin Laden's Pakistani compound the night he was killed by U.S. forces in May, 2011. The Washington Post on Friday reported on details from the documents, which will soon be made public.
Bin Laden also reportedly argued in favor of changing his organization's name. The al Qaeda brand, he explained, was tarnished since Obama administration officials “have largely stopped using the phrase 'the war on terror' in the context of not wanting to provoke Muslims,” and instead spoke of targeting al Qaeda.
