On the stump in Iowa, Mitt Romney relayed the story of a Navy SEAL he met, Glenn Doherty, and that he later learned Doherty was killed in the consulate attack in Libya, saying "You could imagine how shocked I was to learn that he was one of the two former Navy SEALS killed in Benghazi."
Now, Doherty's mother says she wants Mitt Romney to stop using her son in his campaign. A Boston TV station quotes her as saying, "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.”
Regardless, Mitt Romney has continued to invoke Glen Doherty's name in speeches, like today in Ohio.
We will continue to see these kind of incidences if Romney is elected President. He has absolutely no idea of what he says or does. Mitt is as incompetent as they come and he has NO moral fiber or heart. Can he really fool that many people? It is very hard to believe he can. Maybe the polls have been manipulated by the conservatives and that we should say that this is all a conspiracy. I'm just saying.

Right on Ron! When will the corrupt Darrell Issa Stop? Remember a year ago or so, it was Egypt and the Arab spring-, then there was some USPS-post office stuff thrown in-then there came the Debt Ceiling fight,-then there was the women issues and Sandra Fluke-then came more birther crap, now back to some foreign affairs crap, until Issa finds more stuff to go after the Post Office for. You would think that this multi-millionaire, piece of work would make better use of his time. People like him with way too much money, must become very easily bored with their lives. You know the old saying, "Money cannot buy Happiness", well, it obviously can't fix boredom either.

Yes this woman has a right to say stop it. The friend said romney couldnt remembering talking to this man in a 20 min. time frame then he goes up and says how they talked for awhile about everything.
Change of subject again I ask has anyone heard the right wing nuts crying the polls are wrong? A week befor the debate they were left wing fraud and then the BLS numbers were a fraud, but now they say the polls are great. Are people buy their BS?The washington investigation is just another witch hunt by issa who should be the one answering the question about is shady past. Ryan and romney say the president failed, but never do the mention the fact the budget ryan and the boys cut funding for security for the state department. Yes they may have done more, but what about the uss cole, the barracks in 1983 in beirut,and others over the years. The government looked into it and made honest efforts to change things but these guys just want to do political blame games..

It doesn't take any brain surgeon, to look at what the Republicans have done over the years, with the Military, God, and Guns, and Gays, an a whole host of other things. They have, constantly, just used all of it, for political bantor, for political battering rams, and to try to score political points. Wake up people. The mother is right to be upset about this.
