Romney to pull story of slain
Navy SEAL from campaign speeches

The Hill [Washington DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/10/2012 3:42:19 PM

Mitt Romney will no longer reference having met one of the former Navy SEALs who died in the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi after a complaint from the slain soldier's mother, the campaign confirmed Wednesday. On Tuesday, Romney began telling the story of a chance meeting with Glenn Doherty, the former SEAL, at a Christmas party in San Diego. Romney told the story again Wednesday during a town hall meeting in Mt. Vernon, Ohio.(Snip) But Tuesday night, Doherty's mother complained to the NBC affiliate in Boston that Romney was politicizing her son's death.

This is what a classy, honest person does. Can you imagine how Barry would have handled this.

It's not that the story is untrue. It's just that it upset the mother to hear it repeated. Meanwhile, the 0bama campaign uses any story it wants repeatedly despite complaints or outright theft.

Read the comments after the article.

There are some really messed up liberals out there.

Romney will not mention him again.

Fine... his Mom can vote for the other guy..the guy whose administration failed to help her son when help was sought. Sounds like a pretty bad choice.

Hey would you rather Obie talk about it?

I agree in not politicizing it but do you think that if Obie thought for one second he could get some positive traction he wouldn't use it? On the contrary, he caused it!

Romney decides not to use the topic anymore.
Obama has a movie made about his 'big' part in it.

If asked about him again, Romney should just say that he stands by what he said, that it was an honor to meet him. But it causes the family (well, some in the family) pain to hear about him.

The criticism of the Libya debacle still stands. Odd how the day it really hits the fan in the media, and they have no choice but to report it, some little affiliate manages to get some unflattering quotes about Romney.

SQUIRREL!

#6 is right...when you read the article, you can't help but get the impression it's all about politics to her.
When she states "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." it pretty much confirms it.
Sorry about his death...but it could have been prevented Mr. Doherty. If only they had listened.

God Bless this poor woman. It is sad that now her Son's death will be exploited by the liberal media, and that is more to her liking. Forget the wishes of her son, a Navy SEAL, who was more than likely as disgusted with Obama as the rest of the SEALS. Its all about her.

Well, a grateful nation most certainly thanks her for her family's sacrifice. No mother should have to lose child, especially in such a senseless act of violence. But now, instead of quietly asking Mitt to drop it, which he no doubt would have, she has put herself in a position to allow the Dems and the lib media will politicize her son's death.

It is a shame her son had to die because of an incompetent administration. However, this woman is making it political, not Romney. Romney was honoring his service, she is detracting from it by making it an issue because she supports Obama. Would be interesting to know if her son supported Obama.

Yes the Mother did make it political. So sorry for the death of her brave son, but there is something entirely wrong with a mother who uses this to attack Romney. She should be blaming the person whose administration allowed these deaths to happen. Barack Hussein Obama...

The fallen Navy SEAL's mother got more respect from Mitt Romney, who had only kind and respectful words for her brave fallen son, than she ever got from "Commander in Chief" Barack Obama, who sent her a form letter of condolence.

Mitt Romney = Class Act

Well, especially since his death is so recent, I think the campaign should have asked the family if they minded if Romney told this story, in the first place. That would have been the proper thing to do. It is a political campaign speech, after all, not a Memorial Day speech or something of that sort.

The fallen SEALS wife was honored the Gov. paid tribute to her husband. In fact, he called HER to ask if he might recount the story. That he called to ask permission makes him a first class guy in my book. The mother was more than like po'd she did not receive a similar call...so she did what she did. What else would one expect from a liberal? Jealously on the mothers part....JMHO

#25, it has been reported in the media that someone in the Romney campaign did talk with the guys' sister and she had no problem with Romney mentioning her brother. Obviously the guy's mother thinks differently, and Romney did the right thing by honoring her concern by just not talking about his meeting with the guy anymore.

Pipeline Delay

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
