Devastating Moment for Mitt Romney
Bless Candy Crowley for correcting Mitt Romney on his false assertion that President Obama did not call the Benghazi attack an "act of terror the day after the attack. Obama in the Rose Garden.
"No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation."This is what happens on national television when Romney continues to distort the truth and tragedy for political gain. Sooner or later, he was going to get busted for it. Update: Taegan Goddard compared Romney to Gerald Ford on not knowing what Obama said on the embassy attack.
Romney was most effective when pointing out what Obama promised and what actually happened over the last four years. He scored many points But he lost most of them by not knowing his facts on what President Obama said the morning after the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya. Obama acted like a president in the exchange while Romney was much less. It was Romney's Gerald Ford moment.Benjamin Kirby sees Romney's Benghazi moment has a huge failure.
For the record, I saw the Romney crash-and-burn moment as him saying the words, "Am I incorrect in that regard?" as Candy Crowley shut him down on Libya and what was said by President Obama.
