Perfect response from Romney.

Foot on his throat, Mitt, and keep it there.

Romney needs to expand on this to the failure of Obama’s entire Mid-East policy since he’s been President, this is just a symptom of that failure.

Romney - it is time to fight.

Shove this RIGHT IN OBAMA’S FACE.

This is the “dividend” from obama supporting the “arab spring”

Yes, this screw up may be just what Romney needed. They have not been willing to go after Obama’s foreign policy, and both the embassy invasion and the governments ridiculous response open up two new lines of attack...Weakness and bumbling.

And the media won't cover Romney's response so the public won't even see it.

The media won't cover this embassy invasion by Islam hardly if at all. But the media made sure every American head it a 1000 times anything that will help Obama .

Mitt mistakenly believed that he would beat Obama on the economy.

It’s foreign policy where Obama is most vulnerable, and needs to be focused on.

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.

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.

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.

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

” ALL middle east nations harboring terrorists. “

That would be all of them except Israel. And even they have terrorists inside their borders.

Romney is not president so he has no way. Even a President has only some opportunities to get the word out to all people. The media has all power. Lets see you get past the media . Go ahead inform all about how Obama did what a President cannot do : how Obama issued an executive order giving Amnesty to a million illegals. I talk to a lot of idiots who love Obama and have not heard how this monster Obama has violated the law and constitution.
How else do you think the media demonized Palin and not many know about Obama’s Islamic upbringing, Airs , its pastor and what Obam is doing NOW to America , the real unemployment rate , the debt obama is building.

“disgraceful”

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.”

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.

"I’d probably do something pretty drastic."

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.
