Romney deserves rebuke for Libya jab

I'm beginning to believe that Sarah Palin, who could see Russia from her doorstep, had more foreign policy savvy than Mitt Romney. With a chance to act presidential, Mr. Romney instead choose to attack President Obama ("Romney jab on response to video protests draws rebukes," Sept. 13).

Such a tragedy should, for a brief moment at the very least, be an opportunity to rally Americans against those who attacked us, not to score political points.

It smacks of desperation and is a frankly scary commentary on the judgment and instincts of a person who thinks he should be president.
