In what will become the underlying theme for the rest of the campaign, Mitt Romney announced that he is going to stop digging his political ditch once he reaches the Orient.
Beginning with his tax issue, seasoned with his personal stamp on his failed convention, battered with stale neoconservative global hege-maniacal plots, and topped with an aromatic sauce consisting of a misguided attack on the White House, Romney has managed a yoga-like feat of inserting both feet in to his mouth simultaneously.
Digging a ditch to China seems to be a natural for Romney. What better way to continue wholesale, what he began retail at Bain? Shipping jobs across the pacific is simply too costly, too time consuming.
If Romney really wants to personally take over the American economy in his own image, a direct pipeline of all remaining manufacturing and service jobs in the US will certainly speed up the process.
(it should be noted that the shovel Romney employs was made in the United States.)
So, how is his ditch digging going? Pretty fucking deep, methinks.
“What I said was exactly the same conclusion the White House reached, which was that the statement was inappropriate. That’s why they backed away from it as well.”Let's see if we can clear up this bubble-headed bullshit with a timeline:
a. Some raving lunatic, seeking to cause trouble throughout the muddle-east, creates a nasty video, with the sole purpose of angering Muslims throughout the world. To give it a touch of greater disaster and hatred, they claim that rich jews and Israelis underwrote the film.
b. Terry Jones, an effing, flaming asshole, who misuses the pulpit and the bible for self-aggrandizement, fame, and money, promotes clips from the video, leading to the obvious result. Riots.
c. In the meantime, several small groups of single minded zealots plotted a coordinated attack on US sites throughout the muddle east. The Jones promotion acted as cover as one paramilitary group managed to breach and destroy the US Consulate in Libya, killing the beloved and respected ambassador. Libyans came out in force to mourn his death.
d. Before the riots reached the stage of attack, the Embassy office issued a reasonable statement NOT APOLOGIZING, but explaining that we stand for freedom of all religions and expression.
e. Romney, after being goaded on by ultra-conservative newsies, and after talking to his entire neoConman group of foreign advisors, personally drafted a statement attacking the US for apologizing to the rioters. He did not even know of the death of the ambassador, nor did he read the actual tweet issued by the embassy.
f. The White House, learning of the tweet, asked that it be removed.
g. The domestic whirled erupts at Romney's lack of vision, ineffable stupidity, and the lameness of his attack on the White House, in the face of a terrorist attack.
h. The strength and depth of the reaction to Romney's bizarre statement shocks Team Romney. Internally, they decide to double down and continue down the path of perdition.
i. The rank stupidity, the utter foolishness, and the aroma of insanity that now pervades the Team Romney foreign policy approach continues to shock and awe people, so much so that a GOP Electoral College Delegate decides to resign, rather than vote for Romney.
j. Obama manages in one sentence to capture the foolishness and inexperience that is Mitt Romney - "He tends to shoot first, then aim."
k. Romney is left with so much excrement on his hands, that all he can do is claim that the White House agrees with his attack on President Obama:
“What I said was exactly the same conclusion the White House reached, which was that the statement was inappropriate. That’s why they backed away from it as well.
That, in a shell of a huge nut, is how Romney is digging a hole to China.
On the sane side of the street, did you see how deftly, carefully, and strongly, Obama dealt with Egypt?
"I don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. They're a new government that is trying to find its way. They were democratically elected. I think that we are going to have to see how they respond to this incident."The result of his comments? The Muslim Brotherhood issued a statement, "Muslims do not attack diplomats or embassies. We Protect them."
The new prime minister? "We are a friend and ally of America and welcome their support and close relations. We sincerely apologize for the attack on their embassy."
Heh. talk about night and day.
