So Now Is Mitt “Apologizing” for America?

In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, Mitt has condemned the anti-Muslim film in very similar terms to the Obama Administration.  I’m just not seeing daylight here, which is how it should be on this issue.

Here’s Mitt:

“Well, I haven’t seen the film.  I don’t intend to see it.  You know, I think it’s dispiriting sometimes to see some of the awful things people say.  And the idea of using something that some people consider sacred and then parading that out [in] a negative way is simply inappropriate and wrong.  And I wish people wouldn’t do it.  Of course, we have a First Amendment.  And under the First Amendment, people are allowed to do what they feel they want to do.   They have the right to do that, but it’s not right to do things that are of the nature of what was done by, apparently, this film.

“I think the whole film is a terrible idea.  It think him making it, promoting it, showing it, is disrespectful to people of other faiths.  I don’t think that should happen.  I think people should have the common courtesy and judgment — the good judgment — not to be — not to offend other peoples’ faiths.  It’s a very bad thing, I think, this guy’s doing.”

This is a perfectly fine statement, it’s what he should have said in the first place.  He and President Obama/Hillary Clinton are definitely on the same page here.

Will Fox News shut up now?  I doubt it.
