A fatal blow to the media’s concern-trolling this morning? Nah. Their complaint, ostensibly, was with the timing of Romney’s criticism. If only he’d waited 12-18 hours and then sheepishly leaked his complaint about the embassy’s statement to a reporter, the way these tools did, presumably everything would be chill. Although actually, if he’d taken that advice and waited, he would have been concern-trolled then instead for not speaking up and seizing the opportunity to put Obama on the defensive on foreign policy. He can’t win. Quoth Steve Hayes, “You knew the media were going to obsess on this and obsess on it they did.”
But as it turns out, even the administration agrees with his criticism of the embassy. .....

Awful is far, far too kind of a characterization.
Well in translation it all comes down to that Obama simply handed Romney the election win with this mess come November 6.
Anyone climbing over Our wall to tear down Our flag will get their head blown off !
It didn't take long for 0bama to be proved a liar again...
State Department: Hillary Responsible For Security Failures
The Cairo Embassy, of course, was busily tweeting just before it was attacked, condemning the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims. After the Embassy was breached, they doubled down on the tweet, stating, This mornings condemnation still stands. Then Clinton herself released a statement on the consulate attacks in Libya, in which she stated, The US deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.
That fact check is a lie. See post #10.
This is a novel approach, once you’ve been kicked into a corner.
Go back and blame the local office, after you too have given a milquetoast press conference, showing no emotion, and being able to get “me” in the presentation by mentioning your 911 photo-op in Arlington and Walter Reed..
Then come out and say that State and WH were scurrying around for words, knowing how bad the local release would be, only to find out that it was already released.
Then everyone goes to sleep - again - only to find out Romney has called all of you inept idiots.
Then take off for Vegas with no cares in the world.
Sorry Zer0! The American public is ahead of your bullshit!
The AP’s Fact Check? LOL!
The parent company of the about fact check link is IAC. This company is huge, look at some of their other ops.
That’s weird. The Wiki page started to load and then it was hi-jacked to a page that said “sorry about that the page you’re looking for isn’t there, try again at the bottom of this page.” That usually only happens when a page has been removed from its server. But it was there it did start to load.
Thank you. I posted the link so someone would fact check the phony fact check. Shame on AP once again for being the Obama/Democrat/Lieberal psycophant. (I know it’s probably not spelled right but I’m in a hurry!)
It sure is funny, but yet it’s not!!!
Of course it was a stupid comment. They played into the hands of the terrorists. Either they don’t understand how Islamic terrorism works...or they do.
Was Hillary responsible for the absence of Marines? We know how she hates the military.
Ohhhhh I had a feelin' that might be the case. :-)
When applied to liberals the only spelling change I would make to that is an added 'h.' ~psychophant~ I think that might be a legitimate new word. Like refudiate.
