Obama Camp Condemns Romney Before Condemning Attacks in Egypt, Libya
Breitbart ^ | September 12, 2012 | John Nolte

Posted on 09/12/2012 5:49:37 AM PDT by Unam Sanctam

At 11:53pm last night Talking Points Memo released a statement from the Obama campaign condemning Mitt Romney for criticizing something the White House itself disavowed -- an appalling apology issued by the State Department.

Eight hours later, President Obama finally got around to condemning the monsters who attacked us on our own soil and killed our fellow citizens.

Yesterday, on the 11th anniversary of September 11, the Obama White House snubbed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accepted an invitation from David Letterman, and apologized to Islamists upset over a film that mocks Islam and Mohammed -- something "artists" in America do to Christianity with my tax dollars on a fairly regular basis.

First off: Why is our Embassy apologizing for a film no one has seen and apologizing for freedom of speech and expression? In a word, that's un-American. And let's remember that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton doubled down on the apology. Last night, though, the White House finally disavowed the apology, but now the hypocritical and wildly dishonest Obama campaign is lashing out at Mitt Romney for being critical of the same apology the White House itself disavowed.

Gee—and all this time I thought embassy oficials ARE Whitehouse officals standing in for our creep-in-chief. And didn’t hillary just reinforce that officials statement?

Free Speech rights is not the same as saying something that offends Muslims, or gays, or illegals, or ....that is hate speech and is illegal, or it should be....OK, offending White males and Christians is protected by the First Amendment though, that is different.

On the Morning Joe one lib (a regular cohost) suggested that Holder should prosecute the preacher who posted the video on youtube

Well, Obama is letting us know who his real “enemy” is.

The Muslim whackos don’t allow TV or movie theatres. How do they know anything about a movie?

Why are they condemning Romney? He led the way. He recently went to Israel and made his position crystal clear. Romney has every right as a candidate to speak out on this.

Yeah, I heard about the suggestion to prosecute the producer of the U tube. In any normal rational US the precept truth is its own defense would probably fall by the wayside here under Obamination.

I truly wish after he is out of office, they get him up to Congress and ask him the direct question: are you now or have you ever been a Muslim. If he says no, then he is open game for a trip to the crossbar motel.

Did they disavow it? All I saw was a report on the Blaze that some unnamed Administration official did. And the apology is still up on the Embassy web site.

Maybe they think they can have it both ways.

Now if the same people who ran McCain’s campaign are advising Romney (they are), he will suspend his campaign until further notice out of sensitivity to the crisis.

Nolte is a good follow for you Twitter folk.

I could not sleep after following this story last night. ABC keeps saying this was caused by a film by an "Israeli-American". Why? Double whammy I guess.

Israeli = Jews.

American = er, um, the nation that is supplying aid to the savages which has been confiscated from my paycheck?

ABC = filthy bunch of leftists.

Islam sucks.

Mohammed was a pedophile.

Just look at the horrifying conditions in which Islam’s billions of adherents live. Your religion begets your society, and muslim societies suck everywhere, 100% of the time.

The Koran states that Mohammed married Aisha when she was 6 years old, and consummated the relationship when she was 9 YEARS OLD. That’s pedophilia in any society in any era.

Islam sucks. Mohammed was a pedophile.

In the United States, we have a perfect First Amendment right to say what we think. I don’t much care whether Muslims are offended by what I think or say.

We also have a perfect Second Amendment right to help ensure the validity of our First Amendment rights.

Mr. Empty Chair (”this seat is taken”) is a little oversensitive for someone who continually blames others (like GWB) for things as they are...

I thought the film was by that Protestant pastor in Florida who earlier attracted attention by saying he was going to burn a copy of the Koran.

Terry Jones does not sound like an "Israeli-American" name. Maybe he had it changed when he immigrated?

Good point. That was never given the coverage/attention it deserves

The film was being promoted by Jones, but was paid for by a guy out of California. I’m sure, by this time of the day, that a story is posted somewhere about him on FR. If I find one I’ll ping you.
