“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.

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.

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.

The media got a small time community organizer, Kenyan Marxist, POS that had never had a real job ,no executive experience elected president. Since you really think the media is not all powerful then you don't live in reality.

One man in the USA is sleeping well tonight, Ex-President Jimmy Carter!
He is no longer the dumbest SOB President we ever had.
The Communistic Muslim loving Bastard that has slithered into our White House has now surpassed even his own expectations to place us in the most dire position, to become a true Third World Country!
God Bless this country and deliver us from this evil!

I like the way your think. But he may need to be more explicit since Bernake said he would drop dollars from helicopters if the thought it would prevent a recession.

So he might have to say we will invest our tax dollars in smart bombs which we will drop on their country.

Now Romney has to take this message to the people. The media wont report on this at all. They are Obama’s protectors because they have to be, they know if Obama is done so are they so they will protect this douche bag til the bitter end. Romney has to go on the attack but take it to the people, that way everyone hears it and since the media follows Romney’s campaign rallies, they will have to report it

I think the Chicago teachers strike will be a real thorn in Obama’s side, especially if it drags on. Mitt has to leverage it.

It is ironic that today when everyone might have been thinking about 9/11 & dead Osama & Obama could have basked in the glow of that success a year ago, Obama goofs up big time. Also, Obama’s first tweet yesterday was about volunteering for his campaign, not the anniversary. Just awful decisions and responses by Obama and his people today.

The Won in the white hut is wrong about everything...

the economy, foreign policy, cultural extremes, tribalism, classwarfare, violating the constitution and all it’s rights, Federal spending, GM, massive corruption and supportor kickbacks or picking the winners and losers in private industry, unions, EPA, micromanaging school lunches, open borders when we have real jihadist threats against our country, DHS security policy focused on harassing and violating Americans and naming obama’s American political enemies threatening domestic terrorists...

The guy is a walking, talking stink bomb. Such an easy target; Romney needs to go for the media’s American Idol throat. This country is not a mindless game show.

Which he did here! Finally!!! Don’t let up, Mr. Romney.

He won’t go back to playing the good natured villiage idiot unless he’s wanting Obama to stay in the White House and wants America taken down.

The only way to remove this idiot from office is to break down the media’s illusion of Amerian Idol coolest, smartest rap, hollywood President. Romeny does that by being serious. All Obama’s policies are dumb and dangerous as heck. It’s not time for the to pretend GOP to pretend they are a player in the media’s vapid American idol queer contest.

Good. Romney needs to jump on this immediately with an ad buy, especially after the murder of the US ambassador.

It should denounce Obama’s air support putting these people in charge. It should denounce Obama as a threat to the well-being of American national security and way of life.

We cannot sleep easily in this country knowing that our administation wants to unilaterally disarm our nuclear capacity, it wants our ally Israel to submit to Iranian conquest, and it has no idea what it’s doing in the middle east.

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

Yesterday a newscast said that polling showed that Americans trust Obama more than Romney on both the economy and education. It’s unthinkable! Where are these idiots coming from? History has shown that Mitt has had almost perfect success when it comes to anything financial, while Hussein has ruined us financially. Still... they trust the Muslim more.

And education... Kids are graduating dumber today than they did four years ago.

The “untold story”? Your version was “untold” for a reason.

You are either a troll or you have some personal, semi-psychotic grudge against Romney that makes you willing to jeopardize your country's future by effectively campaigning for Obama. Get lost, loser.

I’ve posted this on two other threads, so it won’t go away into the memory hole: From Obama, way way back....

One quote...

“When the political winds shift, I will stand with the Muslims.”

Where will he stand - in front of two burning embassies and a dead ambassador, perhaps?

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

I missed Romney's response... I heard he took questions from the media afterward. How did Romney do?

Stupid Peggy Noonan said on Fox late this AM that she didn't think Romney should have said anything. "Sometimes it's better to say nothing." Peggy said as she squirmed in her seat, looking uncomfortable (her usual look these days). Oh well, consider the source...
