Much like the previous attacks on Romney for having had the audacity of visiting New Orleans after the storm, and several days before the campaigner-in-chief saw fit to do the same, Romney is once again under sieged by Obamas campaign and by the media for stating the obvious, defending our sovereignty and standing up for one of our most sacred values, our freedom of speech.
Romney was correct to deride the Obamateurish statement out of our embassy in Cairo:
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.
(Condemn efforts to offend believers, Tell that to the Catholics...)
In America we respect the right to free speech, regardless of how insensitive or stupid the speaker may be, anyone doubtful of our commitment to this concept, need not look any further than to our Vice President Joe Biden.
But what I still cant believe after reading the Cairo statement, is that there are so many people in our state department who are so stuck on stupid as to actually believe, that by saying to a bunch of rabid fanatics that we dont want to hurt their feelings, a pre-orchestrated planned attack to test Americas will, would somehow be averted.

What Romney should have told the braying hyenas in the presser when they demanded he apologize for speaking up: “After 16 hours of waiting in vain for the President to respond to this outrageous attack on America, I felt as an American citizen I should demand something other that the State Department’s timid apology. It is my hope that in answer to my grave concerns, the President will explain how our embassies and their personnel in the Middle East were left defenseless on 9/11.”
It would have been great to see the heads of the ObamaBot press explode.
