Mitt, when you're losing Party leaders:

Mitch McConnell declines to comment on Romney response to embassy attacks. Does offer "president correctly heightened security overseas"
@jonathanweisman via web

Boehner, Cantor and Rubio statements this AM do not echo Romney's. They neither mention Obama nor slam the administration's response.
@PhilipRucker via TweetDeck

... campaign surrogates:

Just watched an excellent and moving stmt by Sec. Clinton- just the right message and tone.
@SenJohnMcCain via web

Condi, who could have tossed Romney a really important rope, doesn't http://t.co/...
@BuzzFeedBen via TweetDeck

... media hacks:

Unless Mitt has gamed crisis out in some manner completely invisible to Gang of 500,doubling down=most craven+ill-advised move of '12
@MarkHalperin via Twitter for BlackBerry®

A ham-handed and inaccurate response from Romney http://t.co/...  There is a reason why politix stops at water's edge
@ron_fournier via TweetDeck

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

Romney appears to have launched a political attack even before facts of embassy violence were known. Then uses day to issue vague FP vision

... and the head of the Family freaking Research Council:

Tony Perkins says Obama does not sympathize with those who attacked our diplomats. On this, Romney is more reactionary than Perkins.
@WeeZieInc via web

... it's time to stop digging. Which probably means Mitt will be breaking out his platinum shovel at any moment.

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.
