Carr’s Foreign Affairs Clumsiness Adds Insult to Injury Monday, 05 November 2012 11:39

Senator Bob Carr’s derogatory description of US Presidential nominee Mitt Romney as “bloodless” has

been exacerbated by his false denial of using that term,” Senator Abetz said today.

“Senator Carr blogged on his own site 'Bloodless Romney Missed Great Counter Attack', earlier this

year.”

“When confronted with the overwhelming indisputable evidence that he made the comments Senator

Carr simply attempted to deny the obvious and accused the media of “inventing things”.

I can't recall making those remarks and I rather suspect you're now inventing things

on my blog to throw at me, putting me in a difficult position because I can't recall

saying them.

“Australians are entitled to expect their Foreign Minister to be both truthful and sensitive,” Senator

Abetz said.”

“Senator Carr has shown himself to be neither.”

“Senator Carr should apologise before the US election,” Senator Abetz said.
