Stevens' Dad to Mitt: Shut Up

First it was parents of the slain Navy SEAL.  Now the father of slain U.S. ambassador Christoper Steven has called for an end to using his son for political gain in the Libya debate.
“It would really be abhorrent to make this into a campaign issue,” Jan Stevens, 77, said in a telephone interview from his home in Loomis, California, as he prepares for a memorial service for his son next week.
Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee, has criticized President Barack Obama for not providing adequate security in Libya, saying the administration has left the country exposed to a deadly terrorist attack.
The ambassador’s father, a lawyer, said politicians should await the findings of a formal investigation before making accusations or judgments.

I hope that Romney finally listens to these grieving families.Using this Tragedy for Political gain is not only disgusting ,it is beyond the Pale.My Heart goes to the Families of these Men who died, doing their duty. Mr. Romney, your behavior is outrageous, and totally unsavory, for a Man hoping to be The Commander in Chief of all who serve their Country.If you want to see a real Commander in Chief, the Country already has one.
