Take a look at the smirk on Mitt Romney's face at the conclusion of his disastrous press conference basically accusing the president of sympathizing with the people who attacked and killed American embassy personnel in Libya:

Mitt Romney smirks after attacking President Obama over the Libya attacks
That's the smirk of a very self-impressed man. He has no clue how deeply he's hurt himself.

8:11 AM PT: Talk about an understatement:

Peggy Noonan: "I don't feel that Mr. Romney has been doing himself any favors in the past few hours."

@BuzzFeedBen I've been inundated with emails and calls from elected GOP leaders who think Romney's response was a mistake. Not today.

8:21 AM PT: Here's what Scarborough (who blocks me on Twitter for some unknown reason) was responding to:

If you think the eye-rolling at Romney is just coming from the MSM, call up some Republican foreign policy hands.

More Tagging tips:

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.
