Multi-millionaire Mitt Romney often makes headline news for the things he says.
The only problem with that is the fact that frankly, he makes news for saying things that don't make sense, are totally out-of-bounds or just completely untrue!
This week in stupid-comments-Mitt-made, he took shots at the way President Obama handled the attacks against U.S. embassies in Libya and Egypt. Before he retained all the facts about the situation, Mitt pounced on the opportunity to polarize the tragedy, calling the way Obama dealt with the situation "disgraceful."
On Wednesday, we learned that four US diplomats were killed, including the ambassador to Libya. Mitt's response? He doubled down on his shots at the Obama administration, saying that the President "sympathized" with the attackers' response for the deaths of the diplomats. His remarks were so horrendous, that even Republicans called him out, saying that he went too far.
But this isn't the first time Mitt shocked us with outlandish statements, and we're confident it won't be the last. Check out some of Mitt's worst gaffes:
"Corporations are people."
Apparently in Mitt's world of wealth, corporations are people - that's what she said at the Iowa State Fair in 2011, after he was asked about the infamous “Citizens United” ruling by the Supreme Court.
"I'm not concerned with the very poor."
Money Mitt told CNN's Soledad O'Brien that he is not concerned about poor people, because they have an invisible "safety net" that supposedly catches them when they hit rock bottom. Yeah, he really said that.
Is London "ready" to host the 2012 Olympic games?
During an interview with NBC's Brian Williams, Mitt insulted American ally Great Britain during his first diplomatic outing, when he cast doubt about whether London would be able to successfully host the 2012 Olympics.
Let Detroit go bankrupt.
During the economic downtown, Mitt took the stance that the government should not provide taxpayer dollars to bailout the auto industry in a New York Times op-ed. But without the bailout, General Motors and Chrysler both would have gone under.
I like being able to fire people.
Granted Mitt was referring to his plan to offer people more opportunities to buy healthcare services which, in turn, would give Americans the ability to "fire" the companies that they find are not beneficial. But his choice of words show that he is is inadvertently unaware of the economic hardships that the American people are enduring. With over 5 million Americans currently out of work, the last thing people want to hear is a former CEO who laid people off in order to increase his company's bottom line talk, about how he liked to fire people.
