Mitt Romney: Exploiting Death For Political Gain

12 Sep

I’m Mitt Romney, and I approved this exploitative lie…for now.

I am disgusted and revolted by Romney’s behavior in the wake of the loss of four lives in Benghazi, Libya. U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed by a terrorist attack on the consulate in Benghazi. This attack, like a protest yesterday in Cairo, was apparently prompted by a YouTube video defaming the prophet Mohammed — a video made by infamous Quran burner and homophobic activist Terry Jones. State Department officials responded to the Cairo protests condemning violence and religious intolerance.

Romney, in typical form, dived in without the facts. Showing no presidential character whatsoever, he politicized the deaths of four Americans in a baseless attack on the President.

I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.

Bad form! Bad form Mr. Romney. Have you no decency? Have you no respect for the families of those that have died? Your pathological narcissism knows no bounds! Even John Boehner avoided making a political statement over these tragic deaths. What does that say about how vile your behavior is?

Of course, your statement is also blatantly false, but your allergy to the truth is by now legendary. As a candidate, you have held half a dozen positions on Libya, a near record even for your dissembling campaign. Oh, the famous Romney shuffle: jump the gun, avoid the facts, blame the President, change your position, hold a press conference, find a flunky to issue a rebuttal to yourself, avoid the facts, blame the President. Dancing like that every day, it’s amazing you can still find time to put your feet in your mouth.

    Boo Mittens. He does realize that Pres. Obama is going to have to do damage control to delicate foreign policy relations based upon this crap he spews in an effort to be our next POTUS right? Dear sweet ancient baby alien space monkey Jebus, save us from Mittens’ mouth.

      I should also point out that it was Terry Jones, the spawn of the GOP that posted the youtube video. You remember Jones, the fool in Florida that was burning the Quran. Yes, “Dear sweet ancient baby alien space monkey Jebus, save us from Mittens’ mouth.”

        I wonder how far Mitt would get on “Dancing with the Stars?’ Oh wait that should be ‘Dancing with the Has-Beens’ for Mitt, or pehaps even in his case, the never-weres.

        Yes, if this were the late 70s, he would appear on The Love Boat.

        Jani, I love that the whore (sorry for my language) Paul Ryan is backing away and focusing on his seat in the House now. I think it may be curtains for Romneybot! 🙂

    Unfortunately there are too many people who will still agree with Mittens (utterly insincere since he has no actual beliefs) statement even after the fact check. The world is slowly getting saner, but there are still plenty of people who view tolerance and love as weaknesses.

      It makes me want to scream: “What’s wrong with these people?”

        They are poor, mistreated and angry and they are kept ignorant by a deliberately mismanaged education system and a study diet of Faux news. These are people that unfortunately have never developed the ability to read very clear words between the lines of comments like those made by Rick Santorum regarding the fact that educated people do not support conservatives.

        Well said, Christine. Sad, but well said.
