Video: Romney, Heckled for Politicizing Libya Tragedy, Skips Moment of Silence in Fairfax

From CBS News: “During a campaign event in Fairfax, Va., on Friday, Mitt Romney scrapped a planned moment of silence for the passing of four U.S. diplomats after hecklers interrupted the event, accusing him of trying to ‘politicize’ the tragedy.” Which is 100% correct, of course, as that’s EXACTLY what Romney was doing, disgracefully, even as the tragedy was unfolding!  What boggles my mind is that Romney has supporters, like the ones here chanting “U-S-A, U-S-A,” who don’t seem bothered by anything about this guy – the pathological lying, the economic plan that will totally screw them over, the frightening foreign policy incompetence, etc. What’s the deal with that?!?

UPDATE: It turns out that “only 2,700 people had shown up after 5,000 tickets had been distributed.” Also of note: “That’s a big drop from a rally Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Sarah Palin held in the same park four years ago this week, which drew approximately 20,000 people.” That’s right, Willard-bot’s less popular than Sen. “Get Off My LAWN!” and Crazy Sarah Palin. What a guy.
