Mitt's smirking disaster (The Difference in Demeanor When Americans Are Killed) [View all]

Take a look at the smirk on Mitt Romney's face at the conclusion of his disastrous press conference basically accusing the president of sympathizing with the people who attacked and killed American embassy personnel in Libya:



That's the smirk of a very self-impressed man. He has no clue how deeply he's hurt himself.

Meanwhile, check out what a real president (or two?) looks like:

WTF is there to smile about Romney? Really?


Mitt's smirking disaster, continued

by Jed Lewison

Here's another look at the self-satisfied smirk on Mitt Romney's face after he attacked (President Obama for sympathizing with America's attackers) explained to America why he wasn't ready to be president:



Romney is getting skewered across the political spectrum, from the media and from politicians. Even conservatives, who probably feel free to unload now that they know he's going to lose, are slamming him.

"They were just trying to score a cheap news cycle hit based on the embassy statement and now it’s just completely blown up," said a very senior Republican foreign policy hand, who called the statement an "utter disaster" and a "Lehman moment" — a parallel to the moment when John McCain, amid the 2008 financial crisis, failed to come across as a steady leader.


There's a lot more in Ben Smith's report about how Romney's gambit is backfiring even among his allies. It's really a remarkable event in this campaign—easily the most spectacular political blunder of the 2012 cycle so far.

Also, check out Josh Marshall's tick-tock detailing how this episode makes it clear that Mitt Romney doesn't have what it takes to be president.

Still Smirking as he leaves the podium. So proud of himself and absolutely giddy over American deaths for some perceived political gain! DISGUSTING!
