It’s no secret that Mitt Romney is a pathological liar devoid of principles, but the following repulsive little anecdote provides absolute proof that he’s also a complete sociopath who is unfit to serve as president of a Massachusetts Moose lodge, let alone be President of the United States:
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will no longer bring up Glen Doherty, a former Navy SEAL killed in the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya, the campaign said Wednesday in response to a complaint from Doherty’s mother.
“Governor Romney was inspired by the memory of meeting Glen Doherty and shared his story and that memory. We respect the wishes of Mrs. Doherty though,” campaign aide Kevin Madden told BuzzFeed…
“I don’t trust Romney. He shouldn’t make my son’s death part of his political agenda,” [Barbara Doherty] told WHDH. “It’s wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama.”…
Glen Doherty’s friend, Elf Ellefsen, also spoke with Seattle’s KIRO, expressing similar disagreement with Romney’s mention of his friend’s death.
According to Ellefsen, Doherty found his exchange with Romney to be “insincere and stale.”
“Mitt Romney approached him ultimately four times, using this private gathering as a political venture to further his image,” Ellefsen told KIRO. “He kept introducing himself as Mitt Romney, a political figure. The same introduction, the same opening line… [Doherty] said it was pathetic and comical to have the same person come up to you within only a half hour, have this person reintroduce himself to you, having absolutely no idea whatsoever that he just did this 20 minutes ago, and did not even recognize Glen’s face.”
Romney had again made mention of his meeting with Doherty in the wake of these reports on Wednesday during a town hall event in Ohio.
How anyone could consider voting for this vile chickenhawk is beyond me.
