Bob Cesca on Mitt Romney’s pathetically un-presidential reaction to the events in Libya and Cairo on Wednesday:
“They [Republicans] confuse obnoxious loudness with foreign policy expertise.
The opposite of a foreign policy neophyte isn’t a scolding jerkass who pops off with saber-rattling platitudes and political attacks. Romney could have been a statesman about the events in Libya and Cairo and appeared dignified — perhaps qualified in the process, but instead he decided to be a braying dick. Anyone with a lapel pin and a pulse can do that. Braying dickishness doesn’t amount to anything resembling international leadership gravitas.”
