Romney uses the National Guard for his political agenda

So let's see if we can connect the dots.
The news story brakes that terrorist were planning to simultaneously blow up 10 aircraft heading to the U.S.
Romney, who wants to be president, calls out the National Guard. Of course this makes the prime time news. Chris Matthews interviews him on prime time TV. Romney uses the bad news and his repsonse as a opportunity to introduce himself to the American people. He get's free air time because he called out the guard; he showcases his ability to lead the fight against terror for free. He gets good footage to use in later political ads. And we are supposed to feel safer because he called out the National Guard to protect us after the fact? The only thing missing in this "staged event" was the voice over that said, "Vote for me."

...He reminds me of
Bill Frist who tried to hog the spot light during the Terry Schiavo debacle.
It hurt my stomach to watch him.
