Mitt Romney and his right wing sycophants have condemned a statement issued by the U. S. Embassy in
Cairo, a statement they say is an
apology issued to those who murdered U. S.
Ambassador to Libya
and others. Here in full is the statement that they are so
horribly offended by.
The Embassy of the
United States in condemns the continuing efforts by
misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn
efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of
the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the Cairo , Americans are
honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to
the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of
American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the
universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others. United States
Now to everyone except a highly partisan politician this sounds like a reaffirmation of the very best of American ideals. But apparently for Mr. Romney and friends “respect for religious beliefs” is not a cornerstone of American democracy. This is surprising since as a Mormon Mr. Romney and his religion have been the subject of intense and ugly attacks by the intolerant among us. Of all the people who have major roles in public life at this time Mr. Romney should be the one who should most embrace this philosophy. Think of the outrage he and all of us would feel against attacks on the Mormon religion.
The only explanation for all of this is that Mr. Romney, despite all evidence to the contrary, is so determined to portray Mr. Obama as going around apologizing for
America that he will even side with those who spew religious intolerance and use their right of free speech to do so.. So here are some other actions by the President
that we think Mr. Romney will call an apology.
Barack Obama today announced he would be attending his daughter's soccer game this weekend. Mitt Romney immediately charged Mr. Obama with going around the world and apologizing to the enemies of American football, that is, soccer loving, brie eating, commie sympathizing, socialist Europeans.
Barack Obama today announced new water quality standards for drinking water in rural areas. Mitt Romney immediately charged Mr. Obama with gong around the world and apologizing for
’s drinking water, which,
Mr. Romney said was the best in the world and needed no apology from a President who probably drinks a glass of non-American wine once in a while. Mr. Romney said he does not use any alcohol, and that all of the alcohol he does not drink is American. America
Barack Obama today announced he would celebrate
love of freedom in his speech in October at the UN and that he hoped the UN session would not seriously disrupt regular traffic in New York. Mitt Romney immediately charged Mr. Obama with
apologizing for traffic in America , which Mr. Romney said was the finest traffic jam in
the world and he assured voters that if he is elected traffic problems will only get worse not better as his opponent would like. New York
Barack Obama today announced that he was personally horrified at attacks on Mitt Romney’s religious beliefs and that he would cease to work with any group or individuals that adopted that strategy. Mitt Romney immediately charged Mr. Obama with apologizing to bigots.
Yeah, didn't happen but that does sound right, doesn’t it.
