Mitt Romney Approves Fundraising Off American Deaths In Benghazi
Embittered by his loss and showing it publicly, Mitt Romney says Republicans should fundraise off Benghazi because, he claims, without the Republican Party we wouldn’t be seeking the truth.
“I think what the Republicans have every right to say, and is fine to say, is if Republicans didn’t have the majority in Congress, there wouldn’t be an investigation into Benghazi,” he said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “There would not be an investigation into Benghazi, there would not be an investigation into the IRS if the Republicans didn’t have the House, so to say elect Republicans so we can have these investigations is appropriate.”
He also said former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s handling of the attack of the U.S. Consulate will be a liability for her in a potential 2016 presidential run, noting that relationships with countries around the world got worse during her time in the administration.
“This was not a good time for America,” he said. “It’s hard to think of a nation over the last four, five, six years that respects America, thinks more of America today than when President Obama took office.”
