The media in this country deserves to be ... I’ll just leave it at that.

It's too soon to tell, of course. But the reaction to his recent foreign-policy moves has been overwhelmingly negative, from Republicans and Democrats alike, to the point that some wonder whether it could begin to disqualify him in voters' minds.

Does anyone disagree with what Romney said regarding the regime's Egyptian apology or Romney's right to say it? Had Obama been as forceful in a timely manner maybe Bengazi doesn't happen. There is a sh%t storm coming and may wish to close their eyes and pretend it isn't happening, maybe if we are just nice.

Maybe having a spine disqualifies a person from the presidency. But if what Romney said is correct now, it was correct when he said it no matter what events intervened.

I’m no fan of Romney but I really see no problem with him speaking on this.

The media thinks they can point a finger when someone says "macaca" and then claim whatever they want.

It is yellow journalism. Nothing but.

In this case, it comes directly from the State Department. This is not the first time they have used Terry Jones as a scapegoat.

Why not blame South Park as well?

I don’t have much of an azz, kinda small really but I’d be willing to gain weight and make it bigger just so the Atlantic can KISS IT!

Someone needs to tell the Atlantic they are late to the Echo Chamber party

Guess that's why OBummer is campaigning in Nevada today, you know, respecting the gravity of the situation and all.

He's assiduously ignoring the situation while his media minions provide cover and launch diversionary attacks.

It won't work because it's Obama who owns this murderous "Arab Spring", not Romney.

Mitt has now crossed the Rubicon, there’s no going back, he needs to stay on the attack, damn the media. Articulate his foreign policy plan clearly.

This was not a tragedy, it was a foreseeable event in response to the administrations weakness and stupidity. A child could have foreseen an attack on the 9/11 following Osama’s killing particularly when the kenyans convention bragged about it 29+ times.

Romney’s response was clear, accurate, timely and adult.

The Atlantic is a well named magazine. It’s full of fish shit and wrecks like this article.

No one with an ounce of common sense.

I guess the next few weeks are going to show us whether the American people enjoy living in the Soviet Union circa 1978 or not...

Molly should quit posting her wet dreams as news/opeds! Molly here is your worse nightmare coming true: 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 morphing graphic art realities!

Molly, I have a question for you.

Obama has been incompetent for four years.
Obama has displayed stunning ignorance of world history.

Will Obama's incompetnce and ignorance doom his re-election?

...one can but hope...

The buck stops with the braggart in the White House. When is he going to take responsibility for his failed leadership? When is he going to own up to inciting the mob of animals by bragging about killing their leader?

Yes, if this movie no one has seen is responsible, what’s going to happen when Obama’s movie about killing Osama comes out?

I think it will enhance it. At least be have a strong statement. Obama and Hillary would rather play nice with the Muslim Brotherhood. Is our flag flying again or is AQ’s flag still hoisted? This IS a big f’n deal. At least Romney recognizes that fact and isn’t trying to blow it off as being about a movie. This isn’t about Romney. It’s about a coordinated attack on US property. They are trying to downplay it just like they did Fort Hood. Is Steve Croft going to ask obama where the respect was for Bush as he was undermined every step of the way?

You are 100% correct
He can't back down now
He should attack Obama's absence at the security meetings and the stupidity of the Arab Spring policy ala Carter's abandoning the Shah and where that led ( and screw McCain )

The RATS own the media therefore Republicans can do no right and RATS can do no wrong. These incidents should be a huge neg for Obumbler yet the media twist it against Romney. Its crazy.
