In the midst of an ongoing and developing foreign policy crisis, Republican presidential candidate (and complete douchebag), Mitt Romney stepped up to a podium and lied, misled and proved himself completely unsuitable to lead this country. John Aravosis of Americablog has a terrific column today on the defense of Romney by Republican hacks and liars in the aftermath of his unseemly, opportunistic and completely disgraceful display of intemperance. Money quote:
At that moment in time, when American lives were on the line in Libya and Egypt, no one in America gave a damn about what Mitt Romney was thinking. But there he was, smirking like an idiot, getting his facts wrong, and treating the death of an American diplomat as “an opportunity.”
Not very presidential. But oh so Republican.
