GOP leaders are abandoning Mitt in his criticism of President Obama over the awful events in Libya and Egypt. Boehner, McConnell, Cantor, Lugar, McCain, Graham — all expressed their anguish without attacking the President, emphasizing instead that it was not a time for politics, but rather a time for unity.
Peggy Noonan told Fox News, “I don’t feel that Mr. Romney has been doing himself any favors.”
I don’t feel that his advisers have been doing Mitt any favors. He really, really needs to fire some people.
Mittens is both ill-informed and tone deaf, a deadly combination for a presidential candidate. But he wasn’t speaking off the cuff last night, his campaign carefully crafted a statement that must have been approved at the highest levels of his brain trust, such as it is.
