Time for the Wall Street Journal to weigh in on the latest Romney shambles. Sniff, snort, publish. Roll over, order room service.
Whatever the timing of the Cairo Embassy’s statements, Mr. Romney is right that a U.S. Embassy ought to ignore YouTube videos produced by obscure cranks. As Tuesday’s events showed, pandering to Islamists who would use the video to inflame anti-American sentiment isn’t going to stop the protests.
So when the Cairo delegation smelled smoke in the wind, their official response should have been “Bring it on, motherfuckers.” None of these editorial geniuses has ever been posted abroad I’m thinking.
His political faux pax was to offend a pundit class that wants to cede the foreign policy debate to Mr. Obama without thinking seriously about the trouble for America that is building in the world.
Mitt Romney’s political “fake peace.” That is precious. I figure our president being a Kenyan ipso blackto confirms his desire to kiss Arab ass. You guys really showed the pundits who the smart ones are. Most of the goats on Murdoch’s farm eat tin cans, but some are used for fire prevention.
Speaking of horny, Ann Althouse. You politic-snots just can’t stand it, can you? It makes you jealous when a candidate tries to win.
There was an opportunity to go for the win, and Romney took it. The media noticed, of course, and sprang into such intense, concerted action that it was obvious that they knew it was a day to be won and if the other side was going to go for the win, they had to act quickly and ensure that their guy won the day.
But today? It’s Thursday. Today Ann won.
