Conservative columnist George Will dismissed the Romney campaign's suggestion that if the Republican nominee were president the recent violence in Libya that left four Americans dead would not have happened.
Asked on ABC's "This Week" if there's reason to believe that the situation would be different under a President Romney, Will said, "No."
"The great superstition of American politics concerns presidential power, and during a presidential year that reaches an apogee -- and it becomes national narcissism," he said. "Everything that happens anywhere in the world, we cause, or we could cure with ... presidential rhetoric."
Will also chided White House spokesman Jay Carney for pinpointing the anti-Muslim film as the cause of the violence: "If the video hadn't been the pretext, another one would've been found."
