From Jill Farber-Bramson, West Bloomfield Township:
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made the decision to politicize a tragedy. When the American Consulate in Benghazi (Libya) was violently attacked, resulting in the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, Romney asserted that the Obama administration sympathized with those who waged the attacks.
This statement not only demonstrates Mitt Romney’s reckless disregard for the truth, but also displays his self-serving political opportunism as well as poor judgment. Statements from the Cairo Embassy and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton never expressed sympathy for the attackers. In fact, the Obama administration condemned the attacks. When this tragedy occurred, Mitt Romney could have acted as a patriot and a leader. Instead he chose to act as a political opportunist. This is a another critical leadership test failed. Does anyone believe that this man should be commander-in-chief? o
