Romney Criticized For Politicizing Attacks In Libya
One of the standard criticisms of President Obama by the GOP is that he is not a real American and that he apologizes to foreigners for America's international behavior. Mitt Romney used that line to attack the president following the attack on the US embassy that resulted in the death of the US Ambassador. Of course, it was not true. Romney continues to feed red meat to the Tea Party as if he were running his primary campaign. The Tea Party feeds on these kinds of lies. They tweet them to each other and they are incorporated into the chain emails that they forward to each other. He will win their votes by feeding their fantasies. His problem, however, is that he already has their votes. He is losing the respect of the media, and he is forced to apologize in press interviews each time he provides a feeding frenzy for the Tea Party.
