Romney's Presidential Response to Terror
Rush Limbaugh ^ | September 12, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 09/12/2012 11:48:38 AM PDT by yoe

RUSH: Romney called the acts of violence "outrageous" and "disgusting." Obama didn't use those words when he talked about it. Obama didn't get anywhere near describing what happened that way.

(Romney's response)

We really need a President right now, since we haven’t had one for 4 years.

Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.

Both are Traitor Losers who hate America!

Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.

A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.

Thanks to RushIsMyTeddyBear and Focaulut's Pendulum and for finding these graphic art realities!

I’m no Romney fan ... and will hold my nose when I vote for him BUT he did look VERY Presidential today. I hope that it reflects the real Mitt and that it is not just an act .... I can only hope.

First off all, the activities of this administration DEMAND criticsm.

Romney pointed out the differences of appoach between the two candidates. The voters need to know that we currently have a WANKER for president.

I think much of Mitt’s previous backgound and decisions were more due to the practical aspects of being Goveror of Massachusetts rather than his own beliefs. I suspect that we will all be surprised when he gets into the Oval Orifice.

Romney should start in on what set this up to begin with --Obama and Hillary's ARAB SPRING ( too bad about McCain )

It is all going to depend on how the mushy independents react

Let's hope they don't rally to Obama if it is seen as a revenge for Osama

Heard second-hand that Peggy Noonan really went after Romney for his response. Is that true?

Screw it. Romney should not back down for an instant. Romney is playing it perfectly.

might play up the fact that Arab Spring is Obama’s program to trade orderly dictators (sometimes ruthless)for disorderly(always ruthless and bloody)anarchy driven Islamists. And it has been his plan from the git go!!

Incredibly, she isn’t the only Republican who’s done so. Bill Kristol called Romney’s reaction a complete bungle, and others without the guts to be named-—such as an aide to John McCain-—called it a disaster on the scale of McCain suspending his 2008 campaign to go to D.C. Are these people on drugs??

Mitt Romney sounded and acted mature and like a leader. Unlike the terrible one who resides in the White House now.

Nice thought, but Romney can’t do that.

The din from the Media would be EPIC, and all of it hate directed at Romney. It’s bad enough that any criticism of Obama is RASSISS!, but then to ad this in, too?

He needs to do what he is doing, PLAYING A PRESIDENT.

Hopefully, this image is not lost on all those "independent" voters, still wondering which candidate will be the best for them...

Did you see the earlier article when a lesbain said she asked Romeny what she should tell her 8 year old who wants to know why her 2 mothers couldn’t marry?
Romneys response “I don’t care what you tell her. Whatever you’ve been telling her for the past 8 years.”

On the one hand, Obama, the Democrats, and the MSM are doing everything possible to play down the importance of the embassy assaults. Yet, on the other hand, the same people are attacking Romney for criticizing the president during what they portray as a time of serious crisis. It makes no sense, of course.

Meanwhile, anything that allows Mitt Romney to act like a serious president while Obama continues to act like the empty chair he is, even when acts of war are being perpetrated against us, is good for Romney, and he must not wilt under pressure or allow the Democrats to distract him with Bain or tax-return issues.

The press conference was a win in every way. Plus it gave Romney good practice on how to handle the Antichrist media as President.

Good news, the independent voters are “center-right”, so do not worry.

The Democrats realize that Obama blew the election yesterday, that’s why they are so desperate.

Stay strong, Mitt! We’ve got ‘em now!

Because the one with real leadership was the one who took the LOSER in the White House to task. There is no leadership in the White House, NONE.

Yep and of all days, September 11th, 2012, the LOSER in the WH handed once and for all the election to Romney. LOSER is NOW TOAST.

He sounded more natural than usual, and seemed to be speaking from the heart, while responding logically and firmly to questions. Seemed like a glimpse of the real Mitt, rather than the cautious, stage-managed version we're more accustomed to seeing.

Take no comfort knowing that Peggy is on board with Mitt. And personally; sick of her writing with a 'flower' pen.

Knowing that John Bolton; OTOH; is an Advisor; gives me the highest hope.

Romney gets a bum rap in the blogosphere in regard to the gay marriage business in MA. He opposed gay marriage and supported the effort to pass a constitutional amendment along with Cardinal O'Malley, et al.

I must admit that Romney looked great today—like a leader, like a statesman, like a President.
