    Mitt Romney strongly denounced an anti-Muslim film linked to riots against U.S. diplomatic compounds in the Mideast on Thursday, accusing its director of wrongly offending Islamic sensibilities. His comments appeared to move him in line with the White House’s own position.

    Romney told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that while he had not seen the film himself, he knew enough to declare it a “very bad thing.”

    “You know, I think it’s dispiriting sometimes to see some of the awful things people say,” Romney said. “And the idea of using something that some people consider sacred and then parading that out a negative way is simply inappropriate and wrong. And I wish people wouldn’t do it.”

    Romney said that the film is clearly legal under the Constitution.

    “Of course, we have a First Amendment, and under the First Amendment, people are allowed to do what they feel they want to do,” he said. “They have the right to do that, but it’s not right to do things that are of the nature of what was done by, apparently this film.”

    The Republican nominee also condemned Florida pastor Terry Jones, whose burning of a Koran sparked deadly attacks abroad in 2011, for promoting the film.

    “I think the whole film is a terrible idea,” he said. “I think him making it, promoting it showing it is disrespectful to people of other faiths. I don’t think that should happen. I think people should have the common courtesy and judgment —- the good judgment — not to be — not to offend other peoples’ faiths. It’s a very bad thing, I think, this guy’s doing.”

    The film has nothing to do with the war now beginning in the middle east.

    Obama is turning the entire middle east over to the extremist. Enjoy your world war within a few years.

    This may be Mitten's biggest flip flop yet.

    Though he really didn't have much choice. :lol:

    you have the right to perverse pornography too.......but that doesn't make it right or good judgement......

    that's the only point Romney is making....it's NOT a flip-flop....

    He's making the exact same point everyone else was making....the point made that led him to claim that Obama sympathized with terrorists.

    He's a whore.

    As long as it wasn't the first thing he said in reaction to violence against Americans I'm okay with it. The film has little or nothing to do with what happened anyway.

    The film was out months ago.

    The attack and protests were planned 9/11 events.


    You have failed.
