After Mitt Romney recently began invoking the name of a deceased Navy SEAL who was killed in Libya, the slain SEAL’s mother was forced to speak out to stop him.
“I don’t trust Romney. He shouldn’t make my son’s death part of his political agenda. It’s wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama.”
Is there even an ounce of sincerity in his face when Romney says “it broke my heart?”
Worse yet for Romney, his decision to invoke the image of Glen Doherty has inadvertently invited Doherty’s friends to tell their own side of the story of when Mitt Romney came to town.
According to Doherty’s friend Elf Ellefsen, Romney introduced himself to Doehrty four times during the same party, not remembering that he had already met Glen. Doherty called it “pathetic and comical”. Each time, Romney introduced himself “robotically” as “Mitt Romney, political figure.” Glen believed it to be very “insincere and stale.”
The Romney campaign is now claiming Mitt will no longer mention Doherty on the trail, even though he did today less than two hours before writing this.
