The obvious responsible thing to do when American citizens and public officials are under physical threat abroad and when the details are unknown, and events spiraling, is to stay silent. If the event happens on the day of September 11 and you are a candidate for president and have observed a political truce, all the more reason to wait to allow the facts to emerge. After all, country before party, right? American lives are at stake, yes? An easy call, no? But that’s not what the Romney camp did. What they did was seize on a tweet issued by someone in the US Embassy before the attacks in order to indict the president for “sympathizing” with those who murdered a US ambassador after the attacks. Unfuckingbelievable.

It’s worth noting that he called her daughter “adopted” directly AFTER she’d told him about the complications she had GIVING BIRTH TO HER DAUGHTER and how her partner wasn’t allowed to see her in the hospital. There’s no excuse. (via ipomoeaandthestarstealers)
