Mitt Romney's Callous Indifference

I've always known that the belief that Republicans are "better" or "stronger" than Democrats in the area of foreign policy is a myth, and has been since 1941, if not earlier. (Democrats: WW-II and the Marshall Plan. Republicans: McCarthyism and Iraq.) I've also known that today's Republican Party is so weak on foreign policy that our enemies must surely be laughing their asses off. What I did not know, is that their weakness would become so obvious, so quickly, in such a stark single incident, as Mutt Romney's downright childish attempt to use the killing of one of our Ambassadors to pretend he's more manly than President Obama. So much for "my experience as a successful businessman makes me qualified to be President (right, Mr. Trump?)." Read it and puke...Collapse )

Mutt Romney's recent conduct has become so shameful that even his fellow Republicans are starting to run away from him...with some notable exceptions:

Instead, Romney got the backing of Sarah Palin, who took the opportunity to make a penis joke: ”If he doesn’t have a ‘big stick’ to carry, maybe it’s time for him to grow one.” In his corner, Romney also had the esteemed RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, who tweeted a not so faint dog whistle suggesting that Obama sympathizes with Muslim extremists, and Newt Gingrich, who turned 180 on the Libya intervention once Obama supported it.

UPDATE: For those of you asking "Where are the Muslim moderates?" here's your answer: Libyans protesting not only the insults against their religion, but the violent response against it. All the more reason to quit coddling right-wing agents of intolerance in the name of "free speech."
