This is beyond disgusting. From Talking Points Memo:

Ronna Romney is the ex-sister-in-law of Mitt Romney. She’s apparently remained close to the Romney family. She has a minor role in the Romney campaign in Florida and has recently appeared at campaign events in Michigan with her daughter.

Earlier this afternoon she posted these grotesque images of the mangled body of the late Ambassador Chris Stevens with the words “Obama killed him” surrounded by dripping blood.

It is still up on her Facebook page here as of this posting.

Talking Points Memo re-posts a screen shot of her Facebook page that includes the montage that has Ambassador Stevens in it, but I will not.

This has become something of meme in Republican circles and it is the about the most despicable thing I can imagine someone doing to score political points.

It is completely outrageously disrespectful to the Stevens family and exploits an American tragedy to score cheap political points.

It is way, way out of bounds.

I certainly hope Mitt Romney shows the character to be embarrassed by this association.

Update: The post has disappeared from Ronna Romney's Facebook page. It will live in infamy forever on the internet however, including the screen shot still at Talking Points Memo.

Update 2: Can anyone recall a single Democrat posting gruesome photos from 9/11 saying, "Bush did this"?

Just asking.

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.
