Romney: ‘Inappropriate’ for Obama to Politicize Bin Laden’s Death

In a completely inappropriate display of politicizing and event, Mitt Romney pretended to be a regular guy by carrying a few pizzas into a firehouse while shamelessly appearing with Mayor Giuliani in order to politicize the 11th anniversary of 9/11 and criticizing Pres. Obama for politicizing the assassination of Osama Bin Laden.  Mayor Giuliani, whose failed 2008 presidential bid was based entirely on politicizing 9/11, was the perfect person for Romney to appear with while politicizing a world event and simultaneously criticizing someone for politicizing a world event.

“I think politicizing (the killing bin Laden) and trying to draw a distinction between himself and myself was an inappropriate use of the very important event that brought America together, which was the elimination of Osama bin Laden,” Romney said.

In a further display of hypocritical behavior, Romney then politicized the death of Chris Stevens, US ambassador to Libya, who was killed during a violent rampage aimed at protesting an anti-Islamic film made by a very unintelligent and irrelevant American idiot.  Romney said that an early response from the administration seemed to sympathize with the attackers who were protesting an obscure film by a California filmmaker that ridiculed Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.  President Obama, in response to Romney’s politicizing of the death of an American overseas, said that the response was not his nor was it approved by his office.

“The president takes responsibility not just for the words that come from his mouth, but also for the words that come from his ambassadors , from his administration, from his embassies, from his state department,” Romney said. “They clearly sent mixed messages to the world. The statement that came from the administration — and the embassy is the administration — the statement that came from the administration was a statement which is akin to apology. And I think was a severe miscalculation.”

So, it seems if your name is Romney, it’s okay to politicize an international death, but if you’re running against Romney for President, then you can’t.

Now, over to Jim with the weather.  Jim?

  1. I don’t even know what to say when it comes to Romney or the GOP anymore.

    I told my father nearly a year ago that I thought Mitt Romney could not become president because Americans can’t vote for a guy this transparent and inauthentic. Say what you will about “Dubya” but he had an authenticity (an authenticity I strongly opposed) that didn’t make every word out of his mouth sound like pandering.

    But forget Romney for a moment. Are any of us going to listen to Republicans on the subject of not politicizing a war? Does anyone remember the 2004 election? Dick Cheney telling us that if Kerry won the United States would be attacked with a nuclear device?

    Please. Romney is pathetic. I can’t even pretend to not be offended by him anymore.

    • i wish the first bush would run again. he was the last republican i respected. maybe Jeb will run in 2016. i’m fairly moderate, but the GOP are like watching TMZ. they’re trying to just outdo each other on craziness to get headlines and attention. and romney is one of the worst contrarians i’ve ever seen. if obama stands, romney says he should have sat. vice versa, it’s all he does.

  2. It seems that all politicians have to have a phd in Advanced Spin these days. Politicians here in Australia are just as bad. They must have the same ‘coach’. If I could vote in the US I’d vote for Obama just because he lets some conviction come through now and then.

  3. Romney’s game plan is to attack and keep attacking. The Republicans have found negative campaigning to be successful, so they’re that’s what we see. The Republican Congress adopted opposition to Obama as a holy cause. A sad state of affairs.
