Posted on 09/11/2012 7:40:37 PM PDT by SE Mom
(CNN) - Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Tuesday issued a paper statement sharply critical of President Barack Obama over his handling of violence in the Middle East earlier in the day.
I'm outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi," Romney said in the statement. "It's disgraceful that the Obama Administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.

The Obama administration? No Mitt, go after Barack Hussein Obama directly. Obama, the Muslim usurper. Obama, the enemy of America.
Islamic rats swarming on a wounded Lion. The bad guys smell blood. The West is in grave danger.
Go back to DU troll.
Way to go! Now Mittens has to keep hitting 0bama with this next couple days.
The MSM are covering this in a disgraceful manner. This story has been hard to follow because they are apparently self censoring so as not to offend delicate muslims.
Can someone confirm what is the actual film/video that is being referenced?
But..but...but WAIT! NOW Obama says it’s the fault of the embassy in Cairo (under the bus with you)
“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” a senior administration official told POLITICO.
Forget a press release,
we were attacked on 9/11/12 and this is it??
Get tough dude.
That’s what needs to be said. Now he needs to get in touch with his friend BiBi and come up with a plan to stand by him. Make some noise so the MSM can’t ignore him in his quest to throw down Obama. This is the opening and one that the world needs to see.
Romney gets it right.
I agree- Bibi and Mitt go waaay back...they’re friends so I imagine there will be communications.
Romney wasn’t my first choice, but he is sizing up pretty well.
Now he needs to mention that Obastard has enough time to go on Letterman, but not to meet with the PM of our ONLY ally in the Mid East.
What I want Romney to say is if he’s elected he’ll stop ALL financial aid to ALL middle east nations harboring terrorists. Period. We got other things to do with our tax dollars. And if we do “invest” tax dollars in that area it will be dropped from our planes.
Not if we give him positive reinforcement. THIS is how a PRESIDENT should respond!
The media won’t cover Romney’s response .And many here will blame Romney for the media not covering it.
Romney has to learn to get past the media.....you think the media was any better to Reagan?
If he’s serious about winning the election he MUST add this to the statement,
“I think it’s now fair to ask the question, who’s side is Barrack Hussein Obama really on?”
Failing that, he’s not really serious
Good for Mitt. I can’t stomach another 2 mos of this Jimmy Carter do over.
” ALL middle east nations harboring terrorists. “
That would be all of them except Israel. And even they have terrorists inside their borders.
