This morning Mitt Romney has accused the President of sympathizing with the people who killed the US Ambassador to Libya. In a statement released Tuesday evening but held back until 12:01 AM Wednesday, Mitt Romney said: “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.”
Unbelievable stuff, seriously, Mitt Romney is claiming that the President is sympathetic to the killers of our Ambassador to Libya and 3 members of his staff. Guess who else made this ridiculous claim? The political genius Sarah Palin and idiot Reince Priebus.
Mitt is a man of course who continues to claim Foreign Policy is not important, even though it is a large part of the President actual job. Romney didn't mention either Iraq or Afghanistan in his convention acceptance speech. So we do get the idea that Mitt Romney doesn't believe foreign policy is important, especially since Russia is our biggest geopolitical enemy and it is 1960.
But this seems beyond anything I would imagine a candidate for the Presidency would say, he is making the claim that this President supports the killers of our Ambassador and members of his staff, and it is beyond disappointing that anyone, but particularly a man who is running for President would politicize this even, in fact, one might say it is unpatriotic. Mitt Romney seems to believe he can only win by making sure people believe our President isn't one of us, he isn't American. We need to teach him a lesson on that one, because no matter our party, when a member of our diplomatic mission is killed in action, we become a nation of one, Mitt Romney doesn't seem to understand that making him unfit for the Presidency.
