President Obama has “misunderestimated” his opponent Mitt Romney.
In his Convention speech, the President said Romney and Ryan were “a little light on foreign policy.”
After Romney screwed the pooch in last night’s statement about the events in the Middle East that killed four Americans, this turns out to be an understatement of gargantuan proportions. It’s as though he said the Pacific Ocean was “a little moist.”
First reports on September 12 said Romney quickly put out a statement calling it “disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”
Problem # 1, is that the Administration has never made any such statement, ever. Mittens was pandering to warhawks, racist rednecks, and Stupid People. But his lie only gets worse:
Problem # 2 has to do with the timing of his stupid statement. Seems the statement was “in the can,” scheduled for release to the Press at the end of September 11. Egyptian Muslims staged anti-U.S. protests over an anti-Islam propaganda film published on the Interwebs. Similar unrest took place in Libya at the U.S. consulate, resulting in the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. As the story unfolded, it became clear that the Libyan attack was not an out-of-control citizen protest, but a staged assault, complete with military weapons.
So while American politicians, starting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the President, speak out in condemnation of the attack, honor the fallen, and extend their condolences to the families, Mittens makes speeches continuing to back his LIE that the Administration “sympathized with those who waged the attacks.”
Since we know this line was written before the Libyan Embassy attack, it seems the Romney campaign was attempting a cheap shot “birther” hail Mary pass, suggesting Obama is a Muslim “sympathizer.” The fact that Romney stuck with the story, after the Libyan attack, makes Willard TODAY’S DUMBASS.
