Romney Exploits Security for Politics

And he's not the only one in the former GOP, that still use that label, as Rachel points out but the examples are numerous and cover especially this past decade plus! And that's all security, National and Domestic, whenever the occasions arise to do so!

GOP demonstrates facility for exploiting security for politics
10 October 2012 - Rachel Maddow excoriates Mitt Romney for trying to exploit the deadly attacks in Benghazi for political benefit and shames Republicans for voting against funding for embassy security and then in the final days of the campaign making a political stunt of embassy security.

Benghazi hearings provide forum for GOP to bash Obama administration, expose classified information

Romney's emotional story remembered very differently by friend of fallen SEAL
Listen to Elf Ellefsen, friend of SEAL Glen Doherty, talk about his friend

In above radio interview Elf Ellefsen says:

Oct 10, 2012 - According to Ellefsen, Romney introduced himself to Doherty four separate times during the gathering.

"He said it was very comical," Ellefsen said, "Mitt Romney approached him ultimately four times, using this private gathering as a political venture to further his image. He kept introducing himself as Mitt Romney, a political figure. The same introduction, the same opening line. Glen believed it to be very insincere and stale."

Ellefsen said Doherty remembered Romney as robotic.

"He 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."

Ellefsen described Glen Doherty as a humble, non-political guy, and said it was ironic for him to be used during a presidential campaign.

"Whether it be Republican, Democrat, Green Party, Libertarian, it doesn't make a difference. Because this guy is using our great friend, our humble, and honorable great friend...who is truly larger than life...He has become part of the soapbox routine for politics in a presidential race." read more>>>

"Romney and Ryan might gut by up to 20 percent investments in the Department of Veterans Affairs -- and even suggest privatizing the veterans' health care"

"Everybody has all these programs, ball games praising veterans, and all the presidential candidates praise them, but Obama’s the only one that’s got the budget money. And he’s the only one willing to — if we have to raise taxes in order to help veterans, we’ll have to raise them on the very wealthy, and maybe on everybody, but we’ve got to do it." Former Sen. Larry Pressler. (R-SD) Vietnam Vet 8 Oct. 2012
