Mitt Romney and His Staff Have Again Shown a Frightening Level of Incompetence!

 All is not created equal, and we are not speaking of race!


Mitt Romney has again proved he is not even close to being ready for the nation's top statesmen position. He is a far cry from any thought he can serve as Commander-in-Chief. and, he is a testament to the levels to which the GOP has dissolved.


Romney continues to live in a fantasy world. He is obviously surrounded by 'Solyent Green" fantasy types who feed him information that is consistently ,flawed,  false, or fabricated. So, his advisers and campaign staff are inept, shouldn't he have some level of wherewithal in discerning such and making changes?  He is incompetent in that realm and those same fantasy world advisers will become his choices to fill key White House and Administration positions   



Romney is a dangerous man, in a dangerous world during dangerous times.

Romney's Statement After the First Death in Libya Slanders Obama


 SEP 12 2012, 8:31 AM ET 



Here is Mitt Romney's "Statement On Developments In Libya and Egypt":
"I'm outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It's disgraceful that the Obama Administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."

The "sympathy" was expressed not by someone in the administration, but by a tweeter in the besieged embassy in Cairo.

MSNBC hosts Chuck Todd and Lawrence O’Donnell say that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney miscalculated badly when he decided to attack President Barack Obama for “sympathizing” with the enemy after the deaths of U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and at least three members of his staff. 

In the hours before the protest in Benghazi that left Stevens dead, the U.S. State Department had released a statement over a film that mocked the Prophet Muhammad. That film, “Innocence of Muslims,” had been recently given Arabic subtitles and promoted by Terry Jones, a U.S. pastor who had previously sparked deadly riots threatening to burn Qurans.

The Romney campaign drew fire on Wednesday morning for issuing a blistering statement condemning the American embassy in Egypt for speaking against an incendiary anti-Muslim film, even though the embassy made the statement before any attacks had taken place. NBC's Chuck Todd, for instance, called the statement "irresponsible" and a "bad mistake."

CNN's Peter Hamby also criticized the response:

Clinton issued statement condemning violence at 10pm EST Tues night. Yet Romney camp still went ahead w/ claim O "sympathizes" w/ attackers
National Journal's Ron Fournier called Romney's actions "ham-handed" and "inaccurate."
Conservative pundit Erick Ericson, while disagreeing with Todd's response, also warned Romney to be "cautious."
Despite that criticism, Romney continued this line of attack in an appearance on Wednesday morning, saying that the White House had made a "severe miscalculation."
This drew a fierce response from analyst Mark Halperin:

Unless Mitt has gamed crisis out in some manner completely invisible to Gang of 500,doubling down=most craven+ill-advised move of '12
Other reporters were similarly baffled. "The Romney campaign's politicization of the embassy attacks is even worse than I expected," Foreign Policy writer Blake Hounshell tweeted.
Speaking on Fox News, Peggy Noonan was also blunt. "I don't feel that Mr. Romney has been doing himself any favors in the past few hours," she said.


The critical issue other than Romney's ineptness, and that of his team, is how he will attempt to'etch-sketches' this screw-up.

I offer in contrast a segment from the Rachel Maddow show last evening.

The segment is 9:00 plus minutes long. I would skip tot he last 4:00 minutes for the point I wish to make.  The Maddow's guest was given total access to the White House for interaction with President Obama. The writer has a strong opinion of Obama as a person with a thoughtful and interactive leadership style and ultimately  decisive.  One who seeks (CREDIBLE) expert advice, and then makes the decisions.

I think back to George Pataki, former NY State Governor's, comments of yesterday about how the nation needs  leadership like George W. Bush's leadership.
