Peggy Noonan: Romney Has Not Been ‘Doing Himself Any Favors’ With Response To North African Attacks

Former speechwriter for President Ronald Reagan and columnist for the Wall Street Journal, Peggy Noonan, called into question the appropriateness of Mitt Romney‘s response to the attack on America’s embassy in Libya. Noonan said that Romney’s response was perhaps premature and he has opened himself up to accusations that he is politicizing the unfolding atrocity in North Africa.

“I think I belong to the old school of thinking that in times of great drama and heightened crisis, and in times when something violent is happening to your people, I always think discretion is the better way to go,” said Noonan.

“I don’t feel that Mr. Romney has been doing himself any favors say in the past few hours – perhaps since last night,” Noonan continued. “Sometimes, when really bad things happen, hot things happen – cool words, or no words is the way to go.”
