Politicizing Tragedy

Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts,...
Recent events in Libya and Egypt have provided material to be twisted and spun to serve the interests of both of the major political factions and, frankly, it's disgusting.

Mitt Romney was quick to jump on the White House and blame President Obama for an allegedly inappropriate reaction to the death of our Ambassador to Libya and the anti-American uprising in Egypt. Despite years of confusing and unreliable foreign policy shaped by both Republican and Democratic administrations, conservatives seem hell-bent on pinning the blame for the tragedy squarely on the Obama administration and liberals in general. I suppose he is trying to make up for his lack of foreign policy discussion throughout his campaign and also his failure to mention the troops during the 2012 Republican convention. I suppose...

Gov. Romney also likes to accuse the president of constantly apologizing for the actions of America past and present. While I know the president acknowledges an understanding of how others might view us unfavorably, I don't see him as really all that apologetic. I guess he never drank the 'my country right or wrong' kool-aid.

Very disappointing.
