Romney Reaction Blunder

In recent comments made by Republican Presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, he was quick to criticize the Obama administration, and is quoted, “It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks”. Although this comment was a bit out of line and pre-mature, it does in fact show a high level of commitment the presidential hopeful has in redefining our role in the continued war on terror. I believe that Romney was quick to react out of pure passion and anger over a situation that could have been avoided through more aggressive diplomacy.

The Nation, an ultra-left wing publication, has recently written, “Why did Romney issue the “disgraceful” comment? Because he’s seeking the votes of Islam-hating Christian extremist nutcases”. I must admit, this comment made me burst out in laughter. Do they truly believe that Romney would put votes on the line by attacking a sitting president during a national tragedy just to secure ultra-right wing votes? As if the “Islam-hating Christian extremist” were actually contemplating voting for Obama. What a Joke! It seems that their charge of Romney, using this tragedy for political gain, swings both ways. Romney has toned down his recent rhetoric and understands the importance of supporting the presidency during times of American despair. We need to move on and support the candidates that we feel are going to bring the United Stated back to a position of economic and social leadership, not prevaricate on misinterpreted political blunders, which can be linked on both sides on the fence.
