  •  well, he can't throw money at the problem, (14+ / 0-)

    which is always his first choice, so he throws words.  Lots and lots of words.  Anything to confuse and addle the corp media (probably an easy proposition) and the electorate.  I think the majority of the electorate won't be fooled. They're finding out that the man has no core principles apart from greed and ambition.

      Mitt DID throw money at the problem?  Enough to pay Blackwater to do a little covert operation to force the notion of invading Libya (neo-con wet dream, corporate gold mine.) into the Pearl Harbor/9/11 blood lust mode?

      Everyone is assuming it was a genuine grass roots riot by Islamic extremists.  Because we're told that's what it was.

      Most idiots still believe everything they're told. The GOP hates critical thinking for that reason.

      Remember that Romney had his prepared remarks about 'attacks' sent to MSM BEFORE there were attacks.  

      How did he know there would be attacks?

      We made it through puberty - how awful can dying be?

        he did not send before attacks. CT going a little too far. Please back up your facts.

        rMoney was incompetent.  rMoney was inept. rMoney shot before he aimed. All these things are true.

        I see no evidence at all that the campaign planned anything beforehand here. While that would have been a bad plan, it would have at least been a plan. I see nothing indicating any planning here but a reaction plan to what happened.  When evidence emerges of anything else (and it will if it happened. Again, rMoney is incompetent), at that point I can be convinced. Until then I don't believe it.
