Never Mind Muslim Violence, What About Mitt Romney

Ladies and gentlemen, I regret to tell you that we have been misinformed. The most important news of the day is not the attacks on our embassies in Egypt and Libya, or the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Neither is it the somewhat tepid response of President Obama and his State Department. We need to instead, change our focus to Mitt Romney and how he is politicizing the attacks by daring to question the current administration and their reaction and response to the attacks.

Mitt RomneyIn case you aren’t familiar with sarcasm, that’s what you just read. It is the only way I can properly process the insanity I am seeing in the media. At a time when we should be talking about the lunacy that is going on in the Middle East, the media deems it more important to accuse Mitt Romney of attacking President Obama unfairly. When we should be focused on how much of a failure President Obama’s foreign policy has been, the media would rather talk about how Mitt Romney is unprepared on foreign policy and ill-suited to be President.

Until now, the focus of the presidential election has been on the economy. It’s a clear fact that Obama has failed to live up to the hype, hope, and change he promised. The economy is not recovering and shows little signs of changing course. With the attacks on our embassies in Egypt and Libya, the focus of the campaign has swiftly changed to foreign policy. What Mitt Romney has done is to highlight just how ludicrous it was for our embassy to put out such an asinine statement in response to the attacks. The statement basically apologized for a film, produced by a private citizen of the United States, that showed Muhammad in a less than favorable light. The statement didn’t even condemn the attacks. It was hours later before the statement was removed from the embassy website and even longer before Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or President Obama made an appearance and started walking back their support for the statement.

All the while, Mitt Romney is being accused of attacking President Obama unfairly. Some of the headlines we have seen read as follows, taken from a Fox News video I found on Hot Air.

Romney’s Libya Response Fuels Foreign Policy Doubts

Romney has few GOP echoes in criticism

Romney breaks tradition by criticizing Obama on Egypt, Libya attacks

Blasting Obama on Libya and Egpyt, Romney accused of opportunism

Do you see what my complaint is? The same people who would laud President Obama for his foreign policy “successes” are blasting Mitt Romney for his supposed failures and shortcomings. Instead of asking why the Egyptian and Libyan governments allowed these attacks to happen and failed to protect our citizens, they would rather talk about how this is a public relations debacle for Mitt Romney. Instead of questioning why Christopher Stevens was missing for 5 hours, his body dragged through the streets and not returned for 12 hours, they insist it is more important to examine the statement given by Mitt Romney with a fine-tooth comb. The media has questioned everything about the statement, including Romney’s tone and his timing for the statement.

And they think we are imagining things when we accuse the media of bias? I am beyond disgusted by show of ignorance and bias in the media.

  • The media are in “the one’s” pocket. What did we expect?

  • The media is more transparent in their bias than they’ve ever been before. That they are trying to shift focus from Obama’s absurd, passive response to Romney’s not gaffe gaffe is ample evidence. But it doesn’t stop there. They aren’t reporting that 48 hours before the riots began the State Department had credible information that there were riots in the works. With that information administration failed to send Marines to the Libyan embassy and failed to give the Marines in Egypt bullets. The media in the US is protecting Obama by not reporting this. Thankfully we have access to UK news outlets and hopefully our media will be pressured into reporting this. Until then they’ll just attack Romney.

  • Only in America could the lead story be not about Libya, Egypt, 9-11, Obama’s incompetence… but about Mitt Romney commenting on it on 9-12.

    2008: Obama Used Death of Nine Troops To Ding Bush, McCain Over Iraq:

    • Yeah, only in America. Thanks for sharing that video. To be sure, President Obama was not above this, when he was candidate Obama. As far as I am concerned, that opens him up for the same tactics.

    It’s absolute BS for the media to be saying that Romney politicized the events in Libya and Egypt. What on earth happened to Obama championing the death of Bin Laden. While I do give Obama a large measure of credit for the death of Osama Bin Laden, he simply uses Bin Laden’s death as a distraction from his abject failure to fix the economy. Talk about hypocrisy. God help the USA, because the liberals sure won’t.

    Glad I found your blog with your help. You write well, and keep within the bounds of not actually cursing our President. Maybe you can do that later.

    Thanks for the great article. I agree. Mitt Romney did what he should. There should be no apology for that.

    • Thanks for the comment, Bob. I appreciate the kind words. As for cursing President Obama, that’s something I just do not do. I use no profanity, either here, or in my personal conversations. I was taught not to do that by my Mom and Dad.

  • The media finally has a legitimate diversion from Obama’s failed policies in regard to the economy, the only problem is it highlights his failures on foreign policy so they must find a diversion from the diversion and naturally that is Mitt Romney. The media isn’t asking the president how he could have let this happen despite the warning signs and the credible info they had, instead they are attacking Romney for taking a tougher stand than the president. The ROmney story is a totally contrived controversy, but they just don’t care as long as they don’t have to talk about Obama.

  • The press is a shameless propaganda arm for Obama, nothing more.
