A top foreign policy aide to Mitt Romney suggested Thursday that the deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens would never have happened if Romney were president. There wouldn’t even be anti-American protests in the Middle East if Romney were in charge, the aide said.
“There’s a pretty compelling story that if you had a President Romney, you’d be in a different situation,” Romney adviser Richard Williamson told the Washington Post. “For the first time since Jimmy Carter, we’ve had an American ambassador assassinated.”
He blamed the attack that killed Stevens on Obama’s handling of the region, arguing that the Muslim world would have held the hypothetical Romney administration of 2008-2012in much greater esteem, which would have prevented violent protests over an anti-Muslim film like the one that led to Stevens’s death.
It makes you wonder if there isn't some Constitutional way to replace Obama with Romney nowinstead of having to have the, you know, election and then wait until, jeezus, like January to be safe again, doesn't it?
But wait! There's more!
