Romney asked that the rest of video be played. I think it goes something like this:

"So 47% won't vote for me right off the bat. 52% of Americans are disgusted with me because of my complete lack of human empathy. And the 1% are fed up that I'm running such a shitty campaign.

In other words, I need all the help I can get. Please give generously."

Good take, but the actual rest of the video contains evidence that Romney has no idea how a dirty bomb is made.

In the meantime, we've got Ned making things up as a distraction from this topic.

Yeah, that struck me as incredibly bizarre too, but then a quick web search shows that he's just parroting the vile rumors being spread in the right-wing blogosphere.

As usual.

If untrue, I retract that portion of my post. We're still left with the fact that Obama and Hillary had prior warnings of the violence (it was 9/11, duh) and did nothing to protect the ambassador and his staff. Of course and as usual, they're getting a "pass" from the LSM.

Ned, as you probably noticed, the title of the thread is about Mitt Romney and his tenure with Bain Capital. Did you have something to add to that story?

Besides, the notion that the President wakes up in the morning and makes specific security decisions such as how many guards to post at various embassies is absurd, even for you. "Oh, and put three extra guards at the checkpoint south of Kabul's airbase. I have a feeling a suicide bomber is going to come from the south today."

We are still waiting for that retraction.

BTW:
Around 30,000 Libyans marched through the eastern city of Benghazi on Friday in an unprecedented protest to demand the disbanding of powerful militias in the wake of last week's attack that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.
