I am proud, very proud, of Romney for what he did. He caused them to scramble! They lied! They lied and it will be proven, they lied. You will have egg on your face when the truth comes out!<quoted text>
I perhaps would have a little more respect for Romney if he had waited to find out the real situation at the time in the Mideast, before shooting his mouth off prematurely.
The US embassy in Cairo had been attacked. Embassy staff issued a statement, hoping to ease tensions.
Mitt then attacked our President, PURELY FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES. He did not know the full situation.
I can argue that, since the demonstrators saw that they were successfully splitting political opinion in the US, they decided that they should continue to do so by making the fateful attack in Libya. I can argue that Romney's premature unpatriotic statements, BEFORE HE KNEW ABOUT THE FULL SITUATION IN CAIRO, ACTUALLY ENCOURAGED AND PRECIPITATED THE ATTACK UPON THE US CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI, LIBYA!
When the Iranians took the US embassy in Tehran, Iran, on Nov. 4, 1979, during President Carter's administration:
1. Former California Gov. Ronald Reagan told reporters it wouldn’t be appropriate for him to express an opinion at that time.“This is the time for us as a nation and a people to stand united” and to pray, Reagan said, according to United Press International.
2. George H.W. Bush, also campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination, went further.“I unequivocally support the president of the United States — no ifs, ands or buts — and it certainly is not a time to try to go one-up politically. He made a difficult, courageous decision,” Bush said in Michigan, UPI reported.
REAGAN AND BUSH41 ACTED "PRESIDENTIAL" AND ALSO PATRIOTIC UPON HEARING OF THE IRANIAN ACTIONS. THEY STOOD UNITED AS AMERICANS WITH OUR PRESIDENT.
MITT ROMNEY BUCKLED AS A PATRIOT AND ISSUED HIS PREMATURE POLITICAL STATEMENT CRITICIZING THE PRESIDENT MANY HOURS BEFORE HE KNEW THE FULL SITUATION, AND ALSO HOURS BEFORE THE ATTACK ON THE CONSULATE IN BENGHAZI, LIBYA.
Face it: Mitt Romney does not know HOW to "act presidential." If he had, he would have echoed Reagan and Bush41, and stood by the President when the US was being attacked in the Mideast.
Shame, Mr. Romney! Shame! You are a cheap unpatriotic politician, and unfit to become president of the United States of America.
