King: Romney's Libya Statement is a Deterrent to Terrorists
For the last three years, Bryan Fischer had received a prime speaking slot at the annual Values Voter Summit, but after being called out for his bigotry by Mitt Romney last year, Fischer found himself sidelined this time around.
But Fischer was still in attendance as he broadcast his radio program from the conference, affording him the opportunity to sit down with Rep. Steve King to discuss the recent attack in Libya and voice his support for Romney's widely-panned response.
Fischer was concerned that it was not only Democrats who were criticizing Romney's statement but lots of conservatives as well, to which King responded that it was a good thing that Romney made his statement because "if it hadn't been for that, what kind of message would have been sent over in that part of the world?"
If Romney has been silent, King went on to say, "then the terrorists are free to believe what they would believe, so the deterrent factor wouldn't be in place until Romney would become president":
