Where is Romney on Libya???? VANITY

Posted on 10/26/2012 8:21:40 PM PDT by Cookies4ever

With all the non-left-wing media (Fox, radio, web) screaming from the roof tops about the Libya massacre, where the heck is Romney? Forget the campaign, as a prominent American with a huge audience, doesn't he have the moral responsibility to demand answers?!

Staying out of the way of Zero’s implosion.

Why aren’t you so worked up over Obama? Why don’t you get a bunch of people worked up and overload the Whitehouse switchboard? Why don’t YOU deman answers?

Afterall, it’s still “We the People,” right?

Romney is staying clear while the Admin slowly drowns in the Libya debacle. I think that is wise at this point.

I hear ya. But I’m guessing Romney validly thinks that if he jumps into this fray the media will skewer him. It happened the night of the incident, and it would happen again. He sees the real polls, and these polls show he’s winning. He can’t risk being pummeled, however unfairly, by a thoroughly corrupt media. For better or worse, the surrogates have to handle this issue.

I kept asking myself this question all day long. Why no ads? He needs to show scenes of Benghazi on fire and four dead coffins and demand answers. But while the Rats would play dirty, once again we have the Rockefeller types like Ed Gillespie and some of the Bush crowd in the Romney camp (Sununu etc) trying to take the high road and missing a golden opportunity. Won’t work!

He is doing what he needs to do....keeping out of the way so Obama immolates before our very eyes.

He does not want to become the “media lightning rod” and detract from the Obama meltdown.

Obama is imploding just fine on his own, he does not need Romney to help him.

Let them implode.

Plus, he receives intel briefings. Likely at this point he’d be divulging top secret info to comment. He also has fans in the military.

Romney knows Obama gave the order to stand down. He knows what happened. He’s acting like a real Commander in Chief.

NOT until he is elected. Then he can DEMAND answers.

Until then, he can simply stand aside and watch as they start to destroy themselves...which is starting to happen.

Agreed. When your opponent is digging himself into a deeper and deeper hole, the best thing to do is get out of the way. I liked how Romney addressed it in the first debate, mentioned it in the second and stayed completely out of the way in the third.

The point has been made and some of the press are even beginning to act like real journalists. Wow!

Sometimes it is best to let others do the shouting. ANYTHING that Romney says at this point is going to be cast by the MSM as rank politics.

Look the first night Romney was right on the money. He hasn’t changed.

Just relax a little and quit trying to hang O’s crap around any one else’s neck

I dont really think he knows much more than we do, knowing how these creeps operate. He might know some minor things, but I dont think they wanted him to be able to take anything outside of the loop that he could use for his campaign.

“....doesn’t he have the moral responsibility to demand answers?!”

Perhaps, but not on your schedule...... on his.

He can talk about this in less than 2 weeks.

First and foremost, he needs to win the election and get that POS out of our White House and out of our lives. Absolutely nothing is more important.

Romney is wisely not getting involved in Obama’s mistakes but talking about what people are really concerned about - the future of their families.

Go back to the kitchen and make us some cookies. Romney’s doing well to keep quiet. The right question to ask where are his proxies screaming from the rooftops. Where is the opposition? Oh wait, sorry, I’m back in the USA, there is no opposition here.

Forget the campaign

Romney's job right now is to get elected president. That's it. People seem to think that he needs to get Obama to have some sort of Jack Nicholson "You can't handle the truth" meltdown in order to be elected. No, he doesn't. He needs to be calm, competent and presidential, especially at a time when the current administration looks like amateurs, and are already in the process of imploding. He doesn't need Trump, he doesn't need birth certificates, he doesn't need to push anyone on Libya.

The truth will come out someday, and it will come out faster if Romney wins.

As I have said, Romney was brilliant in this decision. Obama has used every venue, including the second debate, to lie about Benghazi. Obama was primed with lies and excuses and eager to use the third debate as another opportunity. Romney took it away from him.

You are confused.

Neither Romney or anyone else has the moral responsibility to demand answers.

Obama shoulders all of the moral responsibility , as the President and the man responsible for sending our men to Libya, to tell the truth and provide answers to the American people.

Yep, you took the words out of my brain and put them down.

By saying nothing it actually increases the intrigue.

I think Romney is being very smart and letting Obama and his underlings rip each other to shreds over who gets the blame.

If Romney says anything, then THAT becomes the story. Let his advisors poke and prod.

All of these twisted tales and lies lead directly to Obama.

Funny how this is reaching critical mass with only a few days to go before the election. Had Obama told the truth on 9/11, NONE of this would be happening. His lying, and throwing his followers under the bus is coming back to bite him, hard.

0bama’s going down in flames on his own. Best for Romney to steer clear on this.

Plus, Romney has intel now as he’s the nominee. He knows more than we do. 0bama, in my dreams, will end up in Club Fed for allowing four Americans to be slaughtered.

There's that, but more important why take the spotlight off The Kenyan? In all likelihood Axelrod & Company are sweating bullets hoping Mitt speaks. Ain't gonna happen.

If Romney starts making this an issue on the trail, it probably means his polls are not good. He has run a smart and disciplined campaign.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see a PAC run some ad late next week.

you need a bag of clues?

This is imploding all around bozo's ears. It's about HIM.

It's not up to Romney. It's up to the media, the elected officials, and WE - like in YOU - to be screaming from the housetops. FOX is covering this almost 24/7 and - they are shining a bright light on it...blow by blow. There are a lot of people up high that do NOT want to take the fall for this debacle - and they are starting to leak - and point fingers.

There are some that will not go down with the ship - it's the “rat way.”

Romney is a candidate - not the president or even a congressman. For him to jump in - bozo and gang and media would LOVE it - they'd turn on a dime and make it all about him using this tragedy for politics. Adn with the short time to the elction - bozo would have cover from answering anything.

What part of that don't you get?

What is the saying about when your enemy is destroying himself, don't get in the way?.

Actually, Romney should answer: "I need to wait until after I'm elected President before I address this debacle. Now is not the time."

Rub it in REAL good. But some subtlety.

As of now, the MSM are burying the Libya story. Only FOX is covering it aggressively. The MSM are focusing on the Hurricane and 2% GDP growth as a sign of recovery! That Hurricane should provide them at least 7 days of cover, then the unemployment report will appear next Friday showing a number hovering around 7.3%. The script has been written to best protect the Marxist.

I seriously can't believe that you don't know what trolling is, considering your OP and your ability to post vanities.

Here's your answer. Get up and look in the mirror. There is a troll, someone posting as something they're not and trying to stir up angst.

Now go eat a cookie.

We have corrupt media, emasculated Republicans, and a calculating presidential candidate (even if he’s calculating correctly this one time.) We’ll be hearing crickets next week, I expect. Unless you can get Nina Totenberg and the New York Times excited, a story goes nowhere, even if it is the sinking of the Titanic or the Assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand.

Here’s a better question. What in the world do CNN, NBC, ABC, etc pay their international correspondents for? they send these “journalists” or “reporters” to be in places like Libya and then something huge like this happens and those journalist reporter types have got nothing to say about it!

what a waste of money for Time Warner paying those people for just basically goofing off apparently. good thing these media corps are not publicly traded because shareholders would not like their money being wasted.

Imploding? Are you kidding? Obama is washing all this off like water on ducks back. FoxNews is doing this 24/7 but the rest of the MSM electronic and print media are completing ignoring it all. However, if Romney brings this up at least in an ad this cannot be ignored. Obama will be forced to respond.

See Post 2. On the mark.

Jennifer Griffin of FOX broke the story to the public this morning, but it was no secret in certain circles.

Including the Romney campaign.

Now we know why he didn’t pin Obama with it during the debate Monday night. Much more effective this way.

Ulsterman’s “White House Insider” post on Wednesday said, “Just keep watching for the Benghazi roll out over the next 48. Should damage Obama big time.”

Here we are, 48 hours later.
