(CNSNews.com) - On the day after the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi, the White House on Wednesday morning released a schedule showing that President Obama would continue with his planned campaign trip to Las Vegas.

Before he leaves, the schedule indicated, Obama will "deliver a statement" in the White House Rose Garden at 10:35 a.m., the White House said.

Obama on Wednesday morning confirmed the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, the administration’s point man during the Libyan revolution, in a statement condemning the "outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans."

"While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants," Obama said.

Obama just made a very weak statement on what happened yesterday in Egypt and Libya. No mention of Egypt nor of our commitment to the rights of free speech.

Whew!!! What a relief. Now the Media can get back to getting him re-elected. All this “tough stuff” just shouldn’t happen. They have a job to do.

Too bad the mob still doesn’t run Vegas.

They might find Zero 20 miles outside of town in the desert with a shovel-shaped dent in his head if he did.

Even the wiseguys know this scumbag is “bad for business”.

We have a FIRST AMENDMENT, you dhimmist retard - something you took an OATH to DEFEND, not apologize away. We have a RIGHT as AMERICANS to rip into those we disagree with. And that is PARAMOUNT over your Islamist sensitivities.

For those who still think there is no difference between Romney and Obama, this episode is starkly drawing a key contrast between them.

If the people in Las Vegas were real Americans they would Boo this piece of excrement off the stage.

Americans need to wake up.

We are under attack from within.

What more will it take to convince Americans.

Excellent post! Obama's apology makes it very clear that he values "sensitivities" over free speech.

This is disastrous, not only for Americans but for the entire free world. Is Obama saying that everyone, everywhere, must cease an activity if it offends islamist sensitivities?

Must we not read a book, or not watch a movie, if it offends islamist sensitivities? Will the White House be issuing a list of banned activities shortly?

Mark my words, if another Reagan does not appear soon, within 10 years that list will be a reality.

To your point, I’m sitting at a McDonalds watching a MAJOR puff piece on Obama on CBS. I swear the media believes this moron walks on water.
