UPDATE: Mitt Romney Won't Mention Glen Doherty, Slain Former Navy SEAL, After Mother's Complaint

Source: huffington post/buzzfeed

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will no longer bring up Glen Doherty, a former Navy SEAL killed in the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya, the campaign said Wednesday in response to a complaint from Doherty's mother.

"Governor Romney was inspired by the memory of meeting Glen Doherty and shared his story and that memory. We respect the wishes of Mrs. Doherty though," campaign aide Kevin Madden told BuzzFeed.

2. LOL--according to his friend, he was inspired by meeting him four times

What a schmuck. Well, at least he's going to quit milking this soldier's death for political gain, so that's something.

3. "...was inspired by the memory of..."

They just can't let go of anything. Even here the Romney campaign still has to use a dead person.

5. He damn well better not

I know Republicans are at a low moral level, but chickenhawk Romney's lying exploitation of an honorable late veteran is despicable.

How could any decent person could vote for these two chickenhawk republican sleazebags is beyond me.

6. Romney "was inspired by the memory" of Mr. Doherty?

You met him at a party once for a few minutes and this gives you a close relationship with him?

"Lying for Lord" again.

16. Yes, he didn't stick in his "memory" quite so well then.

Wonder who did the research that dug up that meeting? I'm quite sure Mr. Slimy Schmoozer had no recollection of the lesser mortals he met at that or any other party.

18. His neighbor had to "remind" him of it.

Otherwise he would never have known.

14. According to Friends that Memory of Romney's was a Lie, and Doherty thought Romney

was only trying to use him to advance his political career.

didn't Romney say on that tape he was waiting for something to happen in the middle east so he can try to take advantage of it ?

you would think he would at least not do it on the backs of a dead person.

17. As a vet, I despise the draft dodging bastard and his five sons who are just slackers.

Even in their statement to stop exploiting his so-called meeting with Glen Doherty he which he couldn't even remember him, he continues to exploit it by say he was inspired by meeting him. The lying bastard doesn't have a decent bone in his entire body.
