Fischer Plays The Victim, Decries Romney's Rude and Insulting Attack On Him
As you are probably aware, People For The American Way had been calling on Mitt Romney to denounce the unmitigated bigotry of the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer during last week's Values Voter Summit where Fischer was scheduled to take the stage directly following Romney.
And, much to our surprise, Romney actually did so, albeit in a vague and rather timid manner without actually mentioning Fischer by name.
Nonetheless, the incident is not sitting well with Fischer at all, who dedicated a good portion of his radio program yesterday to playing the victim and blasting Romney for his classless, tacky, impolite, rude, and insulting attack on him:
It was just an odd thing to me, it was just bizarre because I did not think that Mitt Romney would fall for the bait. I mean, the Left was trying to goad him into attacking me and I didn't think he would do it - I thought he had too much class for that. What he did was completely and utterly lacking in class. It was tacky, it was impolite, it was rude, he insulted his host in the presence of the guests; the host who had made it possible for him to speak to the pro-family community. I just thought he had more class than that.
When I came out into the main lobby outside of the room where we were meeting, I was just besieged by the media, just inundated, enveloped with media. I had never experienced anything like that before and the only reason was because Mitt Romney attacked me. So they wanted to know what I thought about that and I explained that I thought it was pretty tacky, I thought it was unpresidential of him to do that. And they said "when Governor Romney was referring to your 'poisonous language,' what was he talking about?' I said "I have absolutely no idea."
Jesus used poisonous language. He was the one who referred to the Pharisees as a brood of vipers. I've never said that about anyone. I mean, Jesus used far more incendiary and inflammatory language than I have ever used.
