Romney surrogate slams Obama’s Libya response with homophobic slur

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and surrogate for presidential hopeful former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) John Bolton harshly criticized the Obama administration’s response to the violence in Benghazi, Libya earlier this month, calling the U.S. response “limp-wristed.”

The Bush appointee was speaking to Fox News on Friday when he used the homophobic insult, which, as Think Progress noted, is “usually used as a slur against or allusion to gay men” and to connote weakness.

“The US is viewed under Obama as weak, as Sen. McCain said, as declining in influence dramatically in the Middle East, pulling out of Iraq, intending to pull out of Aghanistan,” Bolton alleged, “having a limp wristed reaction to the assassination of four American diplomats.”


Bolton was joining a group of Republican Senators and other officials condemning the Obama administration for its foreign policy in the Middle East.

2. Assholes in every way

They only wish Obama was weak, too. It's their dream, you know, the way everyone who opposes their unneeded wars is a coward - and yet who got bin Laden? They are such desperate, pathetic assholes.

4. When a Romney surrogate was on MSNBC with Thomas Roberts and started going on

about how the Obama admin. really messed up in Benghazi and lied about what they knew, Thomas shut her down by saying, paraphrasing, "Well, the last administration started a war in the wrong country after 9/11, so I'd cut this admin. some slack." He then ended the segment and shut her up.

7. If you're a Democrat, you are responsible for the remarks/actions of people whose sole

affiliation with you is that they accidentally rang your doorbell to deliver a pizza, and you gave them directions to the correct address.

If you're a Republican, you are not responsible for anything, even stuff you signed, notarized, and had blessed by the Pope.

9. If there is an actual hell, two people will go to it for sure.

John Bolton and Dick Cheney. Cannot decide which is worse.
