That’s quite some smirk on Mitt Romney’s face as he walks away from
the podium in Jacksonville, Florida, having just woven in criticism of
Barack Obama to his reaction to the murders in Benghazi. The photograph
was taken by Charles Dharapak of the Associated Press, and I suspect
it’s going to be one of the most significant images of the campaign.
Maybe Mr Romney was just unlucky, but on the other hand… are you
I found this particularly interesting because yesterday while
listening to Barack Obama’s first press availability on the Libya
murders, it struck me that his voice still rang with the same
undisguised narcissism it always conveys (there was no hint of emotion
for the death of Americans).
The idea of “Mitt’s smirk” as the new media and blogosphere smear is telling.
Romney always has this look on his face. It is just how he looks;
like him or not. For someone to say he is smirking is the ultimate in
media bias. Unbelievable. You could find probably 1,000 pictures of him with the same look on his face.

(Encourage all of your Democrat friends to get out and vote on November 7th, the stakes are high.)
That’s because a smirk is his habitual expression, right?
Is that what you’re saying?
A smirk is a smile
evoking insolence, scorn, or offensive smugness. “A constant smirk upon
the face, and a whifling activity of the body, are strong indications
of futility,” the Earl of Chesterfield once wrote in a letter to his son.
Colour me unsurprised.
More strained smiles after the partition thingy..
Well, at least Mittens isn’t apologizing, or going on an apology tour, or any such liberal claptrap…HUH?
NEW YORK–Mitt Romney denounced an anti-Muslim film that is stirring
unrest in the Middle East, even as he stood by his condemnation of the
U.S. Embassy in Cairo for its implied denunciation of the film.
to George Stephanopoulous of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Romney said
he still believed it was “inappropriate” for the embassy to put out the
statement, issued as anger rose in Egypt on Sept. 11 over a film that
ridiculed the Muslim prophet Muhammad. He said the embassy should have
taken it down after protesters breached the embassy grounds. The same
day, attackers in Libya stormed a U.S. consulate and killed four foreign
service officers, including the ambassador, Christopher Stevens.

As near as I can tell, the original statement released by the U.S.
embassy in Cairo, ” U.S. Embassy Condemns Religious Encitement”, wasn’t
disclaimed for at least 5hrs.
Maybe they were sympathetic to the feelings expressed.
I think it was dangled out as bait and Romney and others took it.
If the White House had wanted to correct the story, they could have done so within 20 mins of it being posted.
The phoney(sic) outrage against Romney & others now is what Obama’s handlers were hoping would happen.

Those brilliant bastards!! Probably planned their own deaths as well!
Take a good look people. This is J.C. Stevens, the slain ambassador, who was just appointed to the position in June.
senior guy he replaced was packed off to Ghana at the time. Like Brain(sic)
Terry, he, a junior foreign service officer and two U.S. Marines slain
with him were just pawns in a giant Obama game to downsize America’s
influence in the world.

I don’t know that your characterization of Stevens is correct.
William F Buckley was using the State Department as a Cover when he was kidnapped. Political Officer/Station Chief.
Deputy Principal officer and Political Section Chief
-Jerusalem , Israel
Political Officer – Damascus Syria
consular/political officer – Cairo, Egypt
consular/economic officer in Riyadh.
Stevens had been around. He has been with the Foreign Service since 1991

Hah! That’s just what Obama wants you to think!
Obama’s Statement on the Muslim attacks on American missions
To all my Muslim friends. Peace be unto you in the name of Mohammed, blessed be his name.
If you MUST kill Americans, please try to refrain from hacking their bodies to pieces as it makes them difficult to identify.
Statement from Mitt Romney
American Embassies are AMERICAN SOIL. If you attack another American
Embassy, unlike in Cairo where you morons violated our territory and
destroyed property and where the Marine sentries were ordered by the
Muslim friendly Obama administration to STAND DOWN, our security forces
will FIRE FOR EFFECT. If necessary, I will dispatch carrier based air
cover and additional ground forces to protect our people and remove them
from your clutches.
The Marine Hymn contains the line “…to the
shores of Tripoli.” If you wish to continue your insane tribal and
sectarian madness, we will be back just long enough to bring out every
American citizen then leave you to your national insanity until you’re

See you guys next week – we’ve got some older stuff to catch up on.
Hopefully I’ll have full use of both hands by then.
