Mitt Romney is absolutely scandalized that the Obama campaign could dare suggest that his actions are less than fully within the law. Scandalized! He has demanded an apology and made rare appearances on network news broadcasts to bluster about the improper accusations leveled by the Obama campaign, how offended he is by the mere hint of such a thing, and how 'beneath the dignity of the office of the Presidency' this is. According to him.
Well, I think this kind of statement from the Obama team is really shocking, it's, it's ridiculous, and it's beneath the dignity of the presidency.
What kind of a president would have a campaign that says something like that about the nominee of another party?
He sure as heck ought to say that he’s sorry for the kinds of attacks that are coming from his team.
Yes, how dare anyone suggest that Mitt 'Mr. White Privilege Extraordinaire' Romney, the distinguished looking blue blazer-clad gentleman with the graying temples, could be capable of anything so nefarious. The very idea, it's unthinkable! Why, he's a candidate for the Presidency of the United States, for Pete's sake!
Mitt Romney is so concerned about the dignity of the office of the Presidency, yet he had no qualms calling the person occupying that office a liar. Did this concern's appearance coincide with the Obama campaign pointing out the flaws in Mitt's timeline? Where was he a month ago, when Daily Caller pool reporter Neil 'Boorish' Munro, rudely interrupted the (actual) President during a speech announcing his decision to amend immigration policy?
This week, the White House Correspondent's Association announced there would be no further repercussions or consequences for Munro for his 'breach of decorum'. They're letting the matter slide and hoping he has suffered enough humiliation by being called 'discourteous'. (I know I would be if I forced people to pull such obscure words out of their thesauruses).
At its most recent meeting, board members of the White House Correspondents’ Association generally agreed that the outburst by Daily Caller reporter Neil Munro during President Obama’s immigration policy announcement last month was a breach of decorum but did not to take any formal action against the right-leaning news organization.Where's the outrage, Mitt? Or does the presumed respect apply only to someone like you? IYKWIM.
The organization’s incoming president, Fox News White House correspondent Ed Henry, raised the issue of the Munro incident, according to minutes from the WHCA’s June 29 meeting, which were emailed to WHCA members Tuesday. Henry expressed concern about the breach of decorum but did not consider it the organization’s role to police journalists, according to the minutes. The rest of the board members present apparently agreed. “There was little interest in official censure or action among board members, although all expressed general agreement with Henry’s assessment of the incident,” the minutes said.
