    Mother of slain Navy SEAL: Romney shouldn’t politicize her son’s death

    [UPDATED: 2:40 p.m. ET] Mitt Romney's campaign told ABC News it would stop citing the meeting with Glen Doherty.

    The mother of Glen Doherty, a Navy SEAL who was one of four Americans killed in the Sept. 11 attack in Libya, told a Boston TV station that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney shouldn't politicize her son's death.

    Romney told an Iowa campaign audience on Tuesday about a chance encounter with a Navy SEAL during a Christmas party in San Diego, although he did not invoke Doherty by name. Romney owns a home in California and Doherty was stationed there, serving in the military. Romney cited the SEAL's dedication to the Middle East and his commitment to foreign service as a way to draw a contrast with President Barack Obama's response in the region, which Romney has criticized as lacking in leadership. As Yahoo News's Holly Bailey reported:

    Citing a CNN report that Doherty had been killed while trying to help others at the consulate, Romney expressed his admiration—and likened it to the leadership he says the country needs now in Washington.

    "When he and his colleagues there heard that the consulate was under attack ... they went there. They didn't hunker down where they were in safety. They rushed there to go help," Romney said. "This is the American way: We go where there's trouble. We go where we're needed. And right now we're needed. Right now the American people need us."

    After Romney's remarks, Barbara Doherty told Boston's WHDH 7News that the GOP nominee shouldn't invoke her son that way again.

    "I don't trust Romney," she said. "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."

    Romney has amplified his criticisms of Obama's foreign policy and defense record with a speech on Monday that fact-checkers and the Obama campaign said was rife with errors and policy reversals.

    Yes, it is wrong to use their deaths to degrade Obama. It's not like action or inaction by Obama was instrumental in causing their death or anything.
  3. 1)It's a sorry assed mother who's ashamed of her son's sacrifice.
    2) What's in it for her to try to stifle the truth that this administrations incompetence cost her son his life.
    3)Romney did not invoke Doherty by name.

    leave his name out of it but I politely suggest she fvck off and let us decide what's newsworthy.
  4. You don't know what it is like either to have children or lose a child and are therefore patently unqualified to speak on the matter. So I suggest you fuck off, or better, suck off.
  5. Like I said leave his name out of it , if she prefers but:

    Quite frankly her ignorant ass opinion isn't relevant to the causation and ramifications of the events in question.
  6. The grieving mother of a warrior killed in action is virtually bullet proof. It's the race card on steriods. There's no way for Romney to come out clean on this, and frankly he should have been more politically astute than to touch this subject. Unless the mother wants a personal meeting and say's, my son is dead because of Obama and I want you to tell the world about stay silent. Dumb move!
  7. End of story, her stupid ass opinion is irrelevant
  8. She might politely ask who the fuck are you to decide whats newsworthy or not, especially that it concerned her son.

    This has been said about Romney on about two dozen topics over the past six months.
