In Which a Dim Awareness That He Really Screwed Up Begins to Dawn on Mitt Romney
It’s beginning to sink into Romney’s consciousness — accusing President Obama of sympathizing with terrorists who murdered a US ambassador may not have been the smartest thing he ever did, even if the Fox News-indoctrinated right wing base loved it.
Today at a campaign rally in Virginia, Romney refrained from repeating this vile and disgusting smear: Mitt Romney Tones Down Embassy Critique in Virginia.
FAIRFAX, Va. — Mitt Romney didn’t repeat his strong criticism of President Barack Obama over the response to protests at the U.S. embassies in Egypt and Libya at a campaign rally here Thursday.
He did note the death of four Americans, calling it “a tragedy to lose such a wonderful, wonderful ah, wonderful people,” as he was interrupted by protesters on site in this all-important swing state.
One protester, caught on camera by networks covering the event, shouted “Why are you politicizing Libya?” before being shouted down by the crowd, which began chanting “USA.” The protester was escorted out of the event.
“I would offer a moment of silence, but one gentleman doesn’t want to be silent — so we’re going to keep on going,” Romney said.
