    Now that the dust has settled somewhat and people are beginning to understand just what happened, it appears, that Romney made history.

    Six hours after the American Consulate in Libya issued a statement after hearing there might be protests due to a youtube vid denigrating Islam, Romney maps the statement to Obama and calls it "disgraceful". Then after learning the full story, that A. Obama didn't issue the statement and B. It was issued prior to the protests..Romney doubles down. This was done during an ongoing American crisis. Even some conservatives are pretty shocked.

    Some are saying this is Romney's "jump the shark" moment. Basically, I personally think that happened when the Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare. But this does illustrate what a poor candidate and politician Romney is..and it also made history..because this is the first time a Presidential Candidate has done something like this.

    However..Romney did get one thing right..the Disgraceful part. Except..it applied to Romney.

    OBAMA'S ARAB SPRING-- US Embassies burn ALL OVER the Middle East, Americans die.. Obama goes to Vegas.

    ABSENT LEADERSHIP- Policies of Appeasement- The new Carter years.

    It took the Appeasement Administration over 24 hours to respond.. To calm and reassure a Nation under attack once more on 9-11.. the only release was an apology to the very Terrorists who slaughtered Americans.

    ABSENT LEADERSHIP*** FAILED POLICIES**

    I'm willing to give Romney a mulligan for Tuesday night. He had incomplete information, and made an incorrect statement.

    Doubling down on Wednesday because he's afraid of losing support of the far right wing, however, shows he's not ready for the presidency.

    That's the way the last Republican President reacted to a crisis.

    In any case..the "Press Release" Romney was talking about..wasn't issued by the White House..and was issued PRIOR TO ANY PROTESTS.

    Indeed.......and looked it too, by the way!!!

    Reality is 95% perception. As this shit esclates all over the map, Romney looks decisive while Obama looks like he's hoping this shit will just blow over FTG.

    At the end of the day, what will endure? That on the anniversary of 9/11, the administration was sitting around the White House playing pocket pool as our embassy was stormed = more living in Disney.

    Everythings good Warrior bro........:rock:
