If it wasn't disgraceful enough that Romney decided to get political on 9/11, despite the promise from the campaign that this ONE DAY was off limits, take a look at the latest salvo from the Romney camp later in the evening as the Egypt and Libya events were still in their infancy:

From HP:

The campaign of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney called the Obama administration's handling of a violent and contentious day at two American facilities in the Middle East "disgraceful" in a statement released late Tuesday night.

The campaign had initially planned to hold the statement until after midnight -- and the end of the eleventh anniversary of September 11th -- but lifted the embargo an hour and a half early as the controversy flared over a series of attacks against the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

What's worse is they were so eager to release a statement - any statement it appears - that they did it before one of our diplomats was killed and the White House had even MADE any statement on the events.

...The statement criticized by the Romney campaign came early in the day, before the attacks on the two embassies, and was put out not by the White House, but by the Cairo embassy itself.
Do these people have no shame? Their entire campaign is built on whining about the democrats with nothing substantial to back it up. The transparency of Romney's politics here, in the face of a fluid event, reinforces the lack of understanding about anything regarding foreign policy, a ham-handedness in commenting that continues to prove how amateurish he is (and unfit to lead this country overseas), and further evidence that it's really only ever about him.

Great going, Romney. You really nailed this one.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
