Can’t Catch a Break

Views

Mitt Romney was the victim of an apparent air rage attack on a flight back from the Vancouver Olympics this afternoon. Romney, reports say, “did not retaliate” after the man in question became physically violent in response to Romney’s request that he put his seat up for takeoff.

Thankfully, the reports do not suggest that Romney was injured in any way. But my question is: can Romney’s national security cred in the 2012 GOP primaries survive not retaliating against an unprovoked foreign attack? Perhaps even by a Canadian?
