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.

    When you stop and think about it, Fairfax was probably the worst place for Romney to be today.  How many people in that area are state department employees or friends or family that have state department employees?

    He should probably count himself lucky to have escaped a tar and feathering.
