Libyan Tragedy and Mitt’s Tasty Tasty Feet
Mitt Romney’s feet must taste like lobster covered in foie gras sauce (or as Romney calls it “comfort food”) because he can’t seem to keep them out of his mouth. I am of course referring to Mitt’s tasteless comments about the horrible assassination of America’s Ambassador to Libya. The Former Governor made a total, partisan ass of himself today when 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.”
Obama, because when he loses his cool is kind of a badass, raked Romney over the coals for his comments, telling 60 Minutes that Romney “Shoots first, aims later” when it comes to the words that come out of his mouth.
It’s clear to everyone, including the GOP, that Romney’s comments were totally inappropriate. We politicize marathon times and bear hugs, not the assassination of a public official. Remember when Sarah Palin’s reaction to the Tucson Massacre destroyed her last shred of credibility? ‘Cause the Romney campaign clearly didn’t!
How can Romney be trusted to effective run American foreign policy? Romney’s wooden, uncomfortable interactions with Americans look glorious compared to his face-plant Foreign Policy attack at Obama today. And let’s not forget his gaffe-filled European summer vacation. Or that fact that his dog crate story occurred on the way to Canada! Indeed, the Obama Campaign simply needs to say that a man who can’t be trusted to speak about matters outside the U.S. probably can’t be trusted with the Oval Office.
