- Talking points from the Obama’s America movie were parroted by the Romney campaign, which claimed Obama “sympathiz[es] with those who waged the attacks.”
- Fox News lied, saying that Mitt Romney’s statement last night, which criticized Obama over the Middle East, was released before anyone knew Americans had been killed in those attacks.
- The right-wing revived the conservative narrative that Obama “apologiz[ed] for being American”In short, the right-wing media is using this as an excuse to baselessly criticize Obama’s national security policies, while protecting Mitt Romney’s politicization of the events in Libya and Egypt. All this while completely ignoring the President’s record with Bin Laden.Meanwhile, Pat Robertson is using the attacks as another reason to smear Muslims.
In other words, they are being assholes and lying though their teeth.
I just hope the American people don’t buy it. I know there are a lot of folks out there who want all of the talking points above to be true, and those people are a lost cause.
I just hope everyone else realizes the dirty bullshit these conservatives are trying to pull here.
