You know, I thought Willard had sunk as low as it was possible to sink. But in his craven, sickeningly dishonest statement about the terrible embassy attacks in Egypt and Libya, he has managed to dig himself into a moral abyss deeper than I had thought possible. Romney FALSELY claimed that the Obama Administration had "apologized" for the embassy attacks, when NO SUCH APOLOGY WAS MADE. Both President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton STRONGLY CONDEMNED the attacks. But the vile Republican candidate for President said that Obama had "sympathized with" those making the attacks!! Here's what the President ACTUALLY said:
I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America's commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.
I have directed my Administration to provide all necessary resources to support the security of our personnel in Libya, and to increase security at our diplomatic posts around the globe. While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants.
On a personal note, Chris was a courageous and exemplary representative of the United States. Throughout the Libyan revolution, he selflessly served our country and the Libyan people at our mission in Benghazi. As Ambassador in Tripoli, he has supported Libya's transition to democracy. His legacy will endure wherever human beings reach for liberty and justice. I am profoundly grateful for his service to my Administration, and deeply saddened by this loss
The brave Americans we lost represent the extraordinary service and sacrifices that our civilians make every day around the globe. As we stand united with their families, let us now redouble our own efforts to carry their work forward.
Does that sound like sympathy, Willard, you CLOWN?
And Romney has doubled down in his lie today! HE IS UNFIT TO BE THE LEADER OF A FREE NATION. HE IS UTTERLY UNQUALIFIED FOR OFFICE.
Andrew Sullivan has a convenient summary of the whole episode here.
Look at the smirk on Willard's face, as if he's just gotten away with telling yet another lie.
Like hell, Willard. Like hell. You're through. Count on it.
