“And I wish people wouldnt do it. Of course, we have a First Amendment. And under the First Amendment, people are allowed to do what they feel they want to do.
His statement is fine by me. He basically says the film is not cool but stands up for the First Amendment.
Just when he was acting like a leader...he backs down.
He denounced it in the mildest terms and defended the 1st amendment.
This is Democrap spin on what he said.
This is spin!!
Which is it Mitt? YHWH’s people have a God given right to speak; state the truth about this horrifying monster of the RIP? or shut up when people following this monster terrify you and others with violence?
WHICH IS IT? Don’t be a wishy-washy wimp.
Chris Matthews was already ginning up another controversy by asking why Romney hasn’t denounced it. We all now know how the “journalists” (LOL) conspire to badger him with their talking points. He beat them to it. Let’s keep the focus on obama’s ineptness.
“This is Democrap spin on what he said”
We’re going to see a lot of this here from now until the election. It pays to read the article before commenting.
What he said was 100% correct.
Lets end the First Amendment....Get rid of it, we must praise our Muslim friends!!
No more bad talk about Muslims, it's just unacceptable!!
yes he is .doing somthing..getting a photo op
No matter how badly it was made, it does speak truth.
The movie, that may or may not exist as anything other than an ad for a movie, is simply a scapegoat for Obama and Hillary, and their failed policies. Romney should continue to make clear that while the possible movie can be used to inflame violent people looking for an excuse, it isn’t the real problem.
Oh I still think that Romney will win (likely big), but it drives me crazy that his instinct in politics is usually to back down some.
There was no need for Romney to do this at all.
for some reason, people on our side want to hate Romney so they take an out of context headline from the MSM about a Clinton official interviewing the Republican nominee as something to be taken seriously.
What he said was reasonable and presidential. He supports the right for people to create the movie but probably wouldn’t do it himself because he finds any attack on anyone’s religion, no matter how small, as something that shouldn’t be promoted.
Lighten up, this is reasonable. what should he do? Rent a a popcorn maker, grab a few cases of pork rinds and host a viewing party on the national mall?
Unfortunately this is the Mitt Romney we all know.
Thank you for that moment of clarity.
Obama using the return of murdered Americans as a re-election photo op. FUBO! You failed to secure our consulate in Libya. You failed to react to warnings this was coming. Now you use the return of ther remains of PREVENTABLE murdered Americans as a re-election stop! You make me sick!
Why can’t he learn how to throw the media’s questions back in their faces the way that Newt Gingrich does? The media keeps trying to steer him onto topics they think might damage him and he keeps leaning right into their punches. All he has to do is say he’s not concerned about the film, or whatever topic, because they are larger issues to discuss, e.g. Obama’s handling of the attacks, the ongoing war on terror, Obama’s anti-terror policies, etc. If he doesn’t learn to do that he’s just going to waste so much time talking about what the media wants to talk about, which will never be about topics damaging to Obama.
