(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.

Wow! that’s gonna leave a mark! /s
How about, “After groveling and bowing before those who oppose us and insulting our closest allies, President Obama has created a dangerous situation throughout the Middle East and around the world. His weakness and lack of understanding of world affairs threatens to ignite the world with war. This reminds me of the lack of respect created by President Carter when our Embassy and its people were seized in Iran in 1976. We find ourselves in exactly the same place, for the same reason. There is just one way to restore our standing and respect in the world - sadly, it is to remove President Obama. The sooner, the better.”
Someone has to die before mittens wakes up. Well, let’s hope he stays awake now, because we got a lot to lose if the long-legged macdaddy kenyan muslim stays in the white house.
Sarah Palin and Laura Ingraham have skewered the Romney team for being so timid. Hope it wakes the Romney team up.
Saying that and talking about how BO rarely goes to security briefings should be pretty powerful—that is if Romney talks about it.
4 FA/18's on full afterburner at about 100 ft. doing a 360 around the embassies. If the crowds don't clear, one more lap dropping the ord.
If that doesn't work, get serious.
What is the point in being negative? Laud Romney for this and tell him to keep at it.
Well put Sarah B.!!
Romney may be saving some zingers for the debates.
“Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”
Marines in Cairo and Behghazi: shoot back. Shoot to kill. Remember what Jimmy Carter did to the embassy in Tehran.
Hey.......Romney has it in him!!! Hoping Romney opens the floodgates on personal attacks on American “Traitor/Hater” , Barack Hussein Obama!!!
Why don’t you knock off the “mittens” crap. Or perhaps you prefer 4 more years of the crypto muslim.
He’s the nominee, grow up!
The untold story is that Romney pressed for the soft, deferential version of the statement but his more hawkish staff won the argument.
Hey, you're the noobie here and I would say a little drunk.
Good for him. This keeps the recent events in the news and helps frame the narrative. Maybe Romney could mention something about how Great Leader should spend more time in the Oval Office and less time on late-night television. Expect a celebrity flare-up of epic proportions to help distract the sheeple.
