Romney shames himself...AGAIN!

Shame on Romney. The families of those killed have not even had a chance to grieve and he is using it to slam Obama. This proves him unworthy to be POTUS and will make the world see him as the callous power seeker that he is. If he had taken the time to investigate he might have discovered that in 2006, following the Muslim world's outrage caused by a Danish newspaper cartoon, the US issued a very similar statement condemning those who belittle religious beliefs. This reminds me of the Chick-fil-a fiasco. I may not have agreed with the words but I agree with the right to say it. Our country was founded on two vital principles: Freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Respect for both is the American way. Without it we are lost.

Another point...notice that Romney has said nothing about what provoked Muslims in Libya and Egypt. It is not an apology but a simple recognition that Americans believe in freedom of religion and respect for all religions. He made no mention of the cause of the outrage and I find that insensitive. I wonder what his reaction would be if his polygamist grandfather was the butt of a cartoonist's pen? It would be pretty funny watching grandpappy flee to Mexico to avoid federal prosecution.
