In a hasty moment, Mitt creates his own disaster

Mitt Romney's rush to judgment on the Benghazi slaughter  was an extraordinary dump  for a guy who is fumbling to  be the CEO of America.  In a matter of minutes before the cameras, his attack on  President Obama in a dark moment that called for solemnity and grace  reaffirmed to us that he is the wimpy malfunctioning robot that we had assumed without this damning proof.

 How dare he say that he is qualified to be the leader of the free world when he  is unable to  articulate a simple rational response to the deaths of four Americans?  Didn't even mention them in his assault on the president. Now a desperate man as he slips in the polls (even the Fox News poll)  you find no triumphal tone in his words, only base politics to appeal to the crazies in his base.   Stunned conservative pundits and quaking GOP colleagues could not believe his display of incompetance.  Or as some critics asked, "Is this the fellow that you want to answer the 3 a.m. phone call?"

I suppose we should quote Rush Limbaugh, the great  white whale, who described Mitt as the "only adult in the room." Truth be known, Rush should be quaking in a different way after the Fox poll  destroyed his sinister argument that the major polls are a liberal conspiracy against Mitt.  Does anybody take this screwball seriously?

Or, for that matter,  Mitt Romney?

I thought we had gotten rid of one gunslinger president who got us into two undeclared wars, one of which was premised on false information. Now we're confronted with another hair-trigger pop-off who breaks out his rhetorical blunderbuss before assembling the time-line and the facts about what had happened in Egypt and Libya. In responding to Mitt's jingoistic rant, President Obama said it best: "Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later."

"Shoot first and aim later"?

What an interesting comment coming from this President. That same day Obama told a Telemundo reporter that Egypt was no longer an American ally.....only to have the White House frantically walk back the statement and reiterate the close partnership between the US and Egypt.

You can't make this stuff up, folks.
