Speaking at a recent Tea Party Express rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, State Sen. David Rouzer (R) suggested there would be no violence against Americans in the Middle East if there were some "real men in the White House,” reports ThinkProgress.org (video below).
State Sen. Rouzer said: "When we get [Romney and Ryan] in you are going to see a big change, you’re going to see number one that America is going to be respected again around the world."
"You’re going to see all this turmoil that’s taking place, you’re going to see them look up and say 'Guess what, the American people have spoken and maybe we need to cut it out a little bit, maybe we need to tone it down a little bit, because now we have real men in the White House.'"
An audience member then shouted out "No girly men!"
State Sen. Rouzer agreed: "That’s right, no girly men."
State Sen. Rouzer did not mention that there were six attacks against U.S. embassies under the Bush administration and the 9/11 attack.
