Rmoney Doubles Down On Desperation

It's almost as if Rmoney is trying to determine just how immature he can appear as he willfully undermines the diplomatic processes of a sitting US president. Here's Benjy Sarlin of TPM:
A top foreign policy aide to Mitt Romney suggested Thursday that the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens would never have happened if Romney were president. There wouldn’t even be anti-American protests in the Middle East if Romney were in charge, the aide said.

“There’s a pretty compelling story that if you had a President Romney, you’d be in a different situation,” Romney adviser Richard Williamson told the Washington Post. “For the first time since Jimmy Carter, we’ve had an American ambassador assassinated.”

He blamed the attack that killed Stevens on Obama’s handling of the region, arguing that the Muslim world would have held the hypothetical Romney administration of 2008-2012 in much greater esteem, which would have prevented violent protests over an anti-Muslim film like the one that led to Stevens’s death.

Oh, give me a fucking break. Sarlin points out the blindingly obvious:
Williamson served as an official under President George W. Bush. Numerous deadly attacks on diplomatic compounds in countries like Pakistan, Yemen and Syria took place during the Bush administration. When countries around the world were engulfed in protests over Danish cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad, the Bush administration condemned the material as “unacceptable” even as it repeated the United States’s dedication to free speech.
But of course IOKIYAR. Anything is OKIYAR.

Rmoney must be feeling truly desperate. In general, I doubt Americans are going to approve of his campaign's opportunistic comments on an ongoing international incident. If he continues doubling down on this, he may rest assured that if he becomes president, we will do every possible thing to undermine his own diplomatic efforts... and given his demonstrated "competency," I suspect that will be easy. Sauce for the goose...
