ICYMI: Mitt Romney’s Idiotic, Arrogant, Snobbish Remarks About the Attacks on US Embassies in Libya and Egypt
Today was the first time that I have ever seen a presidential candidate from either party act in such an undignified manner as Romney acted yesterday. He has an unbelievable lack of respect for anyone, and that became the more evident when he smirked several times during his speech and the Q&A session after the speech.
Romney could have stated that he and Obama have differences when it comes to foreign policy, but Mittens should have never, under any circumstances, accused the President of the United States for supporting a statement that was madeWITHOUT PRIOR PERMISSIONfrom the US Embassy in Cairo. President Obama has lots of other things on his plate. He can’t read each and every single statement being released by all of the respective US embassies in countries across the world.
Romney fails to remember this fact: President Obama condemns the release of the statement, hence why it was taken down. With Romney having the background of a businessman, he should have remembered a basic principle of business policy: when a statement is needed to be made about a certain issue, the subordinates have to obtain permission from officials in leadership positions at their companies before they can release a statement. That was supposed to happen in this case. The US embassy in Cairo jumped the gun.
If the Cairo US embassy jumped the gun, Romney used that gun to shoot himself in the foot twice. His actions today seemed reminiscent of a spoiled rich kid angered that another person outdid him on something. Romney’s remarks, even though they were tinged with token statements about offering sympathy and prayers for the families of the four deceased victims of the Libya and Cairo attacks, came off cardboardesque and robotic instead of being legitimately heartfelt.
If Monday and Tuesday were two tests of Romney’s actions under pressure from breaking news events in relation to foreign policy, he hit two foul balls and is close to striking out completely with the American people.
He failed miserably, and the American people, especially those that tend to vote Republican, should take notice and refuse to vote for a candidate that continues to make a bigger fool of himself to America and the world than former President George W. Bush.
Truth is, Republicans voters are so far gone and detached from reality that even Cuba, a traditionally communist country, expressed disdain over the attacks in Libya and Egypt, while a large majority of their elected officials, their figurehead commentators, and their village idiots continued to contribute to the flux of violence from extremist Muslims and to the false framing of all Muslims being terrorists.
Republicans have been flipping the switch to begin almost every problem in our country, while Democrats are left cleaning up their messes. The GOP is like the problem child who won’t clean up their room, even after being told to do so numerous times.
Sounds like Republicans need an attitude adjustment.
