A lot of weird stuff coming out about this "movie" and its involvement in the embassy attack. Sounds like it's not a real movie? And all the background info on it is fake? And a lot of it is dubbed over? And al Queda had been planning to attack embassy for a while, using protests as a cover to infiltrate and pull it off?
Anyway, a lot of important questions unanswered. Which is why it's pathetic to leap at the first possible moment to turn it into political points.
Mitt Romney could have waited, as they did. When he spoke, he could have said essentially the same thing as they did. We honor the people who serve us. We condemn the violence they endured. We express sorrow and support to their families, and we affirm belief in our values. Americans disagree on many issues, including foreign policy, but those disputes can wait until another day.
But that is not what he said. When he first heard about the violence and protests last night, he rushed to condemn the administration before anyone knew fully what was going on. After he had had a few hours to think, he dug himself in far deeper with a graceless press conference whose dominant theme was partisan criticism of the administration.
