Navy SEAL Glen Doherty was Killed in Attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi

The mother of a Navy SEAL Glen Doherty killed in the attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya told WHDH-TV that she thought Mitt Romney was exploiting her son’s death for political expediency.

Barbara Doherty said:

“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.”

Glen Doherty was one of four Americans killed in the September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate.

Romney met Doherty at a Christmas party and later told a crowd on the campaign:

“I met some remarkable people, one of whom was a former navy seal. I just learned a few days ago that he was one of the two former navy seals killed in Benghazi. It broke my heart.”

But Romney’s emotional homily was contradicted by Glen Doherty, a friend of Glen Doherty, who said on a radio interview:

“He actually approached him, using this private gathering as basically a political venture to further his image. And Glen just believed it to be very insincere and stale.”

    What a loathsome pig. Just goes to show, money doesn’t buy one tack, much less class.

  2. Jim says:

    I meant to say tact.

  3. Brigadoon says:

    Mitt Romney is a shameless huckster. I’m surprised he isn’t exploiting wife Ann’s MS now for the sympathy vote. Let’s see what comes out of his mouth 2 weeks before the election. I just bet you he will use her MS.

  4. The Real Adam says:

    Romney is such a liar.

    I’ve never seen a politician who flip-flops so much on every issue and lies without thought. He’s a true sociopath and in my opinion, extremely dangerous. Romney can’t win in November. He just can’t.

    As a mother, my heart aches for Gold Star mother, Barbara Doherty. I am so sorry for her loss.

  6. Marburg says:

    Maybe President Obama should spend sometime with Barbara Doherty. She can give him a few lessons in courage and how to apply them to stand up to the Romney monster. A man Mr. Obama is clearly intimidated by. I’ve never seen a candidate tank as badly as the president did in the first debate. For me, the worst was watching President Obama “nod” in agreement each time Romney criticized him. Unreal.

  7. ChiTOM says:

    Mitt Romney, who protested in favor of the Viet Nam war but, who avoided service this country thanks to a college deferment, is bleeding over the death of this patriotic, Navy SEAL. Disgusting.

    I think Romney missed his true calling. He should be an actor and perform those tearjerker roles on the Lifetime Network. I’m sure he would be quite good. Better than governor and certainly better than president.

    His acting skills are pretty decent. Like Saint Reagan before him, Romney displayed sorrow and grief for the cameras and then switch to happy candidate. Did he take drama at The Julliard? For a moment — a brief moment, I thought he was being sincere. But he wasn’t. He was just being Mitt.

  8. Mitt Romney was for a woman’s right to choose before he was against a woman’s right to choose.
    Mitt Romney was for same-sex marriage before he was against same-sex marriage.
    Mitt Romney was for saving Medicare before he wanted to turn Medicare in a voucher system.

    What you need to remember about Mitt Romney is, he stands for nothing except becoming the first Mormon president. This is his quest and he will stop at nothing to make it happen.

  9. Rachel says:

    Gordie is correct. I fear if Romney became president we would have a Crusades 2.0, with his main targets being women, gays, the elderly, the disabled and the poor. The American people must not be tricked by his shtick. Romney is dangerous.

  10. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    Glen Doherty died serving the United States. He is a hero.

    How dare Mitt “$250 million in Off-Shore Tax Havens” Romney invoke Doherty’s image and service to score cheap political points? Who does Romney think he is? Feminazi is spot on. Barbara Doherty, is a Gold Star mother. Her opinion counts and she let Romney have it between the eyes.

    Mitt “$250 million in Off-Shore Tax Havens” Romney is a draft dodger. His investments in China are in companies doing business with Iran. Romney is a traitor.

  11. Randy Arroyo says:

    Someone should kick Romney in the ass with a steal-toed boot.

  12. Chad Lebanon says:

    Romney is shameless.
