Mittster boxed himself in nicely now

He comes out with an ill-timed, idiotic comment last night way too early and then is surprised when it makes him look like a total buffoon. This morning he doubles down on the idiotic comment to the baffled stares of the press corps following his campaign around.

Why I think he's nicely boxed in:

He knows the comment was stupid, I'm sure someone with a bit of a sense of foreign policy has told him or more likely one of his butlers the reality of it but...

If he actually admitted that his first comment was the ill-timed bit of idiocy that it was he might be able to save a bit of face with the normals but most of them/us have already written him off as a fucking moron and foreign policy dilettante anyway. Actually saying "oops" though would enrage the wacko brigade that is the far right and who feed on anything that makes Obama look bad.

The far right wacko brigade that makes up the majority of the Republican party these days is the only thing keeping Romney in the game at all. If he pisses them off by admitting that an attack on Obama was wrong they're going to stay home and wax one of the cars on their front lawn downing Busch Lite instead of voting in November because they don't really trust his magic underwear religion in any case. That would hurt the down ballot far right Republicans that are the only hope for the party at this point and that's why you're seeing Mitch, the turtle, McConnell and John, the oompa-loompa, Boehner not too happy with him right now.

I love the smell of desperation coming off Romney, it's just as rank as that from McLame/Mooselini in 2008 when they "suspended" the campaign to work on the financial crisis.

Keep up the good work Mitt you fucking asshole.

1. Problem MAY be that he DOESN'T know the comment was stupid.

3. Personally I don't think he

cares if it was wrong or not. He's the consummate executive, leaving the little things like right and wrong to the peons that work for him.

I'm sure by now at least the people close to him know how stupid it was and someone probably told him, but they can't do anything about it.

2. Doubling down on attacking a statement made by a different embassy, before the attacks.

And for what? So Mitt can defend an offensive and cheaply-made propaganda movie as "American values." He won't lose his base over this, but Mitt could end up losing every single fair-minded moderate voter...

4. The embassy comment was made on behalf of people who were trying not to get killed



Not that there was anything wrong with it in the first place.

5. Mitt's taking his cues from the 'baggers and it's killing his campaign.

Fortunately.
