Understatement of the Year

“We will never have the elite, smart people on our side.” 
~ Former Republican Senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum.

Sometimes the jokes just write themselves, or in this case, expose themselves.

This Sorry Excuse for a Man Does Not Even Deserve To Be CLOSE to the Nomination for President


Does anyone honestly believe this man is qualified to be President of the United States? 
As early as 10 pm last night Secretary of State Clinton released a statement condemning the attack, but after the stroke of midnight last night, exactly one minute after the day of 9/11 concluded, Team Romney and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus unleashed a torrent of criticism and accused President Obama of apologizing for America and sympathizing with the attackers. 
During his press conference today Mitt Romney claimed the president was apologizing for American values. And in this case “American Values” would seem to include the views of Florida Pastor Terry Jones who stoked violent protests outside of the U.S. Embassies in Libya and other countries by creating a rabidly anti-Muslim propaganda film. 
What was considered to be a “shiny object” by the Romney campaign as recently as three days ago took center stage today as Mitt used the deaths of three Americans and a long-serving Ambassador to project the idea that President Obama is a secret-Muslim, terrorist sympathizer.
This was the best that the Republican Party could do this election season. When does this incarnation of the GOP finally become extinct? What will it take?

Smirk away, you sorry excuse for a human being.

By the way, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus makes Michael Steele look like Stephen Fucking Hawking.
