So let me see if I have this straight. We have Muslim terrorists storming our embassies, killing Americans, burning the American flag and flying the al-Qaeda flag in its place and the media is focused intently on the protocol of Mitt Romney’s comments about the situation in the Middle East?
The outrage from the media (including some Democrats and Republicans) is about political etiquette? Really? Wow. Now all of a sudden the media is the protocol police.
While the timing of Mitt Romney’s comments can be called into question, should it really be such a huge focus? Of course not. Why is the media not focused on how the U.S. Embassy in Cairo put out that wild statement about not hurting the feelings of Muslims? Why are they not focused on how President Obama’s policies may have contributed to this mess? Instead, the headlines we get say this is the will be a “challenge” for the president.
Romney’s comments might not be playing well with the liberal media but they play well with the conservative base. The winning ticket for Romney is to hit the president hard on his foreign policy choices with regards to the Middle East.
