In the wake of the events in Benghazi, Libya and the deaths of 4 members of the U.S. Delegation to Libya, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, instead of a solidarity of purpose and resolve we get from the Party of No’s presidential nominee, Mitt Romney statements condemning the President and calling him gutless and claiming he was in sympathy with the Embassy attackers. How low can Romney stoop in his desperate attempt to oust President Barack Obama?
Apparently there is no level at which he will not stoop to realize his ambition to be president. He has become the sorriest presidential candidate in U.S. History. Even some of his more staunch supporters are crying foul. And well they should. Instead of offering prayers and concern for the families of the slain embassy personnel and concern for those still in the consulate in Benghazi, he took the position that President Obama was apologizing and sympathizing with the protesters. Which was as far from the truth as he could get. But, sadly it is nothing new for Mitt Romney. He has no shame nor apparent civility nor even any common decency as it now is becoming brutally and shockingly clear.
Politics has never been a hot bed of grace and civility; but in the past candidates have always observed perimeters of decency, especially when Americans have been attacked and killed. Mitt Romney with his attacks on President Obama and the U.S. Embassy in Libya has revealed the nature of his character.
I have not agreed with Mitt Romney on any of his ideas, pronouncements nor his politics in general, but up until now I have always considered him to be a decent sort and a loyal American. Given his remarks last night and this morning I move to reconsider his character and his decency. I don’t believe that he has the best interests of America nor its citizens in his mind, thoughts or heart.
His statements in regards to the situation in Libya have given me pause to reassess his character and lead me to believe that there are serious flaws in that character. Comments such has he has made over the past two days lead me to conclude that does not have the nature, resolve nor ability to lead this nation and its citizens. His condemnation of the President and the U.S. Consulate while it was under attack by protesters who were in the process of injuring and murdering members of the U.S. Diplomatic Corp are at the very least crass, craven and outrageously anti-patriotic. At a time when U.S. Citizens are under attack we should be standing together as a nation not out trying to make hay out of a horrible situation in which citizens of our nation have be placed. It is wrong on every level of decency that I or anyone of a civil mind and nature could possibly imagine. The only person who should be apologizing is one Willard ‘Mitt’ Romney! It is a shameful low to that which he has fallen!” —– Bob Bearden
