Well, it seems that the Bought and Paid For Media's coordinated attack on Governor Romney is in full swing, as the coverage of his press conference yesterday demonstrates. It is becoming laughable, the extent to which Romney is running against both President Obama and his sycophants in the Press.
Romney was spot on in his criticism of the Administration; in fact, he did not go far enough.
Anyone here remember the extent to which the Democrats and their toadies in the Press blamed the abuses at Abu Gharaib on Bush Administration policies? One wonders then why they cannot make the same connection between Mr. Obama's worldview and ideology, and the feckless, ridiculous statement from Cairo as their walls were about to be breached: ""The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions," the statement read in part. It went on to say that the U.S. "firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."
Wonderful. American free speech is the culprit, not the rioters at the gate. Classic apolgia, classic Obama. Yes--he didn't write it. But can anyone look at those words and not understand the mind from which they emanate?
Romney should have gone further. He should have said, "I will not apologize for Western Democracy and I will not apologize for Freedom of Speech. We have two civilizations on display here, one in which free speech has been protected as a matter of course for nearly a quarter of a millenium, and the other in which cartoons, or Youtube videos are seen as the pretext for terrorism and murder. We will defend our path, we will not apologize for it, and we will ensure there is no rest for those who seek to destroy it."
