'Mitt Unfit'

* While tea party Republicans support Josh Mandel, Ohio's absent Treasurer, you have to wonder if they just want a puppet instead of someone with knowledge.  With his lightweight background in the Ohio General Assembly, you wonder if he knows how to write legislation, work with others, ask questions in committee meetings, etc. He has so little experience in these areas and has let others do his work.

The sad part is that Josh Mandel will say anything, even if it is a lie. He doesn't seem to care how people view his continuing lies. Does Mandel think he can do and say anything because he is getting enough money from FreedomWorks, Karl Rove, Government Integrity Fund, Conservative Senate Fund, etc.? Does he think that the lies he runs in ads will win him the Senate? Everyone I've talked to, especially women, think his campaign is terrible, and dishonest.

*Now the right-leaning US News and World Report has declared that 'Mitt Romney is not fit...': with the attacks in Libya and Egypt, and the death of an American ambassador, rather than work toward a solution to this problem, former Governor Romney chooses to politicize the death of an American ambassador. Romney attacked the Obama administration's response to the incidents in Libya and Egypt. In a statement he released at 10:24 p.m. Tuesday night, he said, "It's disgraceful that the Obama Administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."

And that, we know, is a lie. At 10:10 p.m. the Obama administration disavowed the statement by the U.S. embassy in Cairo. At 10:44 p.m. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton condemned the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. And Wednesday Obama campaign Press Secretary Ben LaBolt responded, "We are shocked that, at a time when the United States of America is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in Libya, Governor Romney would choose to launch a political attack."

If Mitt Romney continues to ignore discussing our military, the war in Afghanistan, and national security issues, and attacks the current administration, using an ambassador's death for his own political gain and to further divide our nation, is he truly fit to be commander in chief?....

Romney thinks that other people's sons, daughters, husbands, wives, mothers, and fathers should fight his wars.  His lack of acknowledgement of our men and women in uniform is disgraceful. Of course, what do you expect from a man that wants to outsource veterans health care?
