This is the original post. The updated and corrected version is below.

Weiner must really want to lose this election, because he has gone out of his way, repeatedly, to shout down and/or belittle voters who dare to challenge his infamous Carlos Danger Moments.

This video was shot by a correspondent for Yeshiva World News at a bakery in Brooklyn:

The Hill has the story:

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) berated a Jewish constituent on Wednesday after the man accused him of being a "deviant" and said he should not be running in New York's mayoral race.

The tense shouting match occurred as polls show Weiner's campaign floundering less than a week before the Sept. 10 Democratic primary election.

Well, I guess if there's nothing left to lose...

Here are some highlights:

Voter:

“You’re a bad example for the people."

"You’re behavior is deviant. It’s not normal behavior.”

“How could you do this to your wife?”

Weiner:

“You’re a perfect person? You’re my judge?”

“What rabbi told you that you’re my judge?”

“By the way, I have fought very hard for this community and have delivered more than you will in your entire life."

This particular "clever" comeback by Weiner got my attention:

"Where do you get the morality to judge me?"

Seriously, Carlos?

UPDATE and CORRECTION! I was unaware of the segment that was missing in which the voter made a vile, racist comment. My apologies!

Voter to Weiner:

"Married to an Arab..."

Via Global Grind:

Turns out Anthony Weiner wasn’t just screaming at a Jewish voter in NYC because the dude thought he was disgusting. According to this video, which his camp posted on Vimeo, the voter was upset with Weiner because he married an Arab woman, Huma Abedin.

VIDEO- Mitt "Chevy Chase" Romney failed Commander-in-Chief test, insulted our closest allies, "made an ass of" himself

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

After being subjected to this video of Romney’s foreign policy speech at the Virginia Military Institute, including his newest major reversal on foreign aid, let's respond with this quote:

"We're not going to be lectured by someone who has been an unmitigated disaster on foreign policy every time he's dipped his toe in the foreign policy waters," said Obama campaign traveling spokeswoman Jen Psaki. "Just as a refresher, this is the same guy who, when he went overseas on his trip, the only person who has offended Europe more is probably Chevy Chase."

Team Obama takes it from there:

Mitt Romney has insulted our closest allies, rushed to judgement without facts while Americans were under attack, called Russia—not al Qaeda, our greatest threat, called the Iraq withdrawal "tragic", and didn't even mention Afghanistan in his convention speech.

Voiceover:
"Reckless, amateurish—that's what news media and fellow Republicans called Mitt Romney's gaffe-filled July tour of England, Israel and Poland. When our U.S. diplomats were attacked in Libya. The New York Times said Romney's knee-jerk response 'showed an extraordinary lack of presidential character.' And even Republican experts said Romney's remarks were 'the worst possible reaction to what happened.' If this is how he handles the world now just think what Mitt Romney might do as president."

Indeed, let's not forget what Spain’s Deputy Prime Minister said about Romney: “What I see is ignorance of what is reality.”

Nor should we forget Mitt Romney’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad British gaffe-athon.

Nor that a Jewish group said, hey Mitt Romney, 17,000 of us want you to apologize to the Palestinians for your “racist and ignorant” comments as Palestinians protested Romney statements as “racist”.

And this: Russia is “without question, our No. 1 geopolitical foe.”

Romney is not qualified to be Commander In Chief.

Spain's Deputy Prime Minister on Romney: "What I see is ignorance of what is reality."

First we had Mitt Romney’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad British gaffe-athon.

Then a Jewish group said, hey Mitt Romney, 17,000 of us want you to apologize to the Palestinians for your “racist and ignorant” comments as Palestinians protested Romney statements as "racist".

And let's not forget this old chestnut: Russia is “without question, our No. 1 geopolitical foe.”

So there was that.

It's a new day, and with each new day, Willard M. Romney brings us a new hot mess. Today's involves his latest: managing to offend Spain. He's running out of countries to insult, but never you mind, he'll keep at it until he angers the entire world!

Romney is planning a big important foreign policy speech Monday at the Virginia Military Institute. Let's see if he addresses any of his many, many worldwide embarrassments, the most recent at the presidential debate during which he claimed Spain was a perfect example of government spending gone wild.

How endearing.

HuffPo:

That left Spaniards confused, and threatened to reinforce Romney's perceived handicap in international affairs [...] Spain's level of government spending is actually low by European standards, and significantly less than Germany and Scandinavian countries with far healthier economic prospects. Spain's woes were chiefly caused by the collapse of a property bubble that had fueled more than a decade of booming economic growth.

Spanish reaction to Romney was swift.

"What I see is ignorance of what is reality, but especially of the potential of the Spanish economy," said Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria.

Maria Dolores Cospedal, leader of Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy's Popular Party, noted that "Spain is not on fire from all sides like some on the outside have suggested." Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia Margallo called it "very unfortunate that other countries should be put up as examples" when the facts are skewed. [...]

By singling out Spain, Romney ruffled feathers in a country he will probably need to call on for assistance if he becomes president. Spain has almost 1,500 troops in Afghanistan. It contributed fighter jets, refueling planes and naval vessels to the U.S.-led NATO mission that ousted Libya's Moammar Gadhafi from power.

Ouch.

Sure, Mitt can confidently bounce onto a debate stage full of himself, his reinvention, and his lies, but raising international eyebrows-- again-- exposes him for the inferior, ignorant candidate that he is. Let him try to run from, laugh off, or Etch A Sketch that.
