If this Romney entity didn’t stand a meaurable chance at being the next Leader of the Free World, this anecdote via Paul Constant would be kind of funny-pathetic:
Yesterday, Mitt Romney got emotional about a Navy SEAL named Glen Doherty who died on September 11th in Benghazi. Seems Romney met Doherty at a holiday party a few years back and they made a deep, personal connection. Today, Doherty’s best friend, Elf Ellefsen, remembers the party very differently:
According to Ellefsen, Romney introduced himself to Doherty four separate times during the gathering.
“He said it was very comical,” Ellefsen said, “Mitt Romney approached him ultimately four times, using this private gathering as a political venture to further his image. He kept introducing himself as Mitt Romney, a political figure. The same introduction, the same opening line. Glen believed it to be very insincere and stale.”
Ellefsen said Doherty remembered Romney as robotic.
“He said it was pathetic and comical to have the same person come up to you within only a half hour, have this person reintroduce himself to you, having absolutely no idea whatsoever that he just did this 20 minutes ago, and did not even recognize Glen’s face.”
Local news reported that Doherty’s mother objected to Romney using her son as “part of his political agenda”, and the Romney campaign says he won’t use the story again. Let’s see how long that promise remains unbroken, shall we?
