Let’s not forget that Mitt Romney saw the assassination of an ambassador as an “opportunity”

Mitt RomneyThe Romney campaign is doing another of its now-infamous Hail Mary foreign policy throws today.

This time in an attempt to undercut the United States on the day before the President speaks at a huge meeting of world leaders at the United Nations in New York.

Rather than lob bombs from the west coast, where Mitt Romney today accused Californians of being socialists, the GOP candidate should fly to New York and let himself be heard in person.  Just imagine the efficacy of being able to insult nearly 80 heads of state and government ministers in one fell swoop.

And when Mitt Romney suggests that President Obama doesn’t care about the death of a US ambassador, don’t forget what Mitt Romney said about that death – the Romney campaign said it was an opportunity.  His staff was elated.  They saw the death of an American, a foreign policy crisis, as an “opportunity.”  I wonder if our dead ambassador’s family agrees with Mitt Romney that the murder of their family member was an opportunity?

Keep in mind that Mitt Romney also called the Iran hostage crisis in 1980 an “opportunity.”  And that he was keeping his eyes out for another “opportunity” for Americans’ lives to be threatened.

Republicans can’t win on the facts, as facts have a liberal bias.  So they have to lie and fight dirty.  The only problem for them is that their candidate stinks.  Heck, he’s not even a Republican.  And all the lies, and flip-flops, are finally coming home to roost.  So as Mitt Romney’s popularity drops like a stone all they have left is what they started the campaign with, lies.

Fortunately for us, Mitt Romney doesn’t know when to shut up.
