      Bloomberg News did an interview with Amb. Steven's father, Jan Stevens.

       Mr. Stevens is a lawyer and said Mitt Romney and other GOP talking heads should wait to see what the findings of the formal investigation yield before making accusations or judgments.

JAN STEVENS: “It would really be abhorrent to make this into a campaign issue.  The security matters are being adequately investigated.  We don’t pretend to be experts in security. It has to be objectively examined. That’s where it belongs. It does not belong in the campaign arena.”
     Bloomberg reported that Mr. Stevens said he has been getting briefings from the State Department on the progress of the investigation.
As for whether he had the tools and protection he needed for his job, Stevens said of his son: “We didn’t get into that” sort of discussion.I never heard him say a critical word about the State Department or the administration, or any administration for that matter. He came up through the foreign service, not politics.

    Does anyone think Mitt Romney gives a damn what Mr. Steven's thinks of Romney politicizing the death of his son?  I don't, I don't think Mitt Romney gives a damn about anyone but Mitt Romney.

      Personally, I think Mitt Romney is a vile pathological liar who will exploit anything and everything to get to the White House.   I think we will hear Romney continue to lie and exploit the death of Amb. Stevens.

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.
