As Ed already recounted, President Obamas 60 Minutes interview that aired last night is causing a wee bit of headache for the White House his comments about four American deaths in Libya being a bump in the road and about Israels concerns over Iran being just noise, as you might imagine, havent been playing over too well. The Romney campaign quickly seized on the remarks as insensitive and inappropriate, via WaPo:
His indication that developments in the Middle East represent bumps in the road is a very different view than I have, the Republican candidate told ABC News. I cant imagine saying something like the assassination of ambassadors is a bump in the road.
Of course people are going to grasp at phrases to find a political advantage were in the middle of a neck-and-neck presidential election cycle, and besides, Im sure Team Obama wouldnt know anything about grasping at their opponents words to try and garner political advantage, would they? But words are also powerful things, and if I were on the presidents PR team, I would really recommend that he look for a different description for violence in the Middle East; not only does it make these things sound more trivial, but I cant help thinking that what he really means is that these bumps are roughening the road toward his reelection more than any other ostensible goal.

Meanwhile, if Romney had said the same thing the media would be talking non stop about it and the election would be over. What Obama did on 60 Minutes was commit political suicide but since it’s Obama he will get away with it, just like everything else he does
I thought the same thing. Desperate and offensive pretty much describes their whole campaign.
How many of our ambassadors have to die before a “speed bump” becomes “a matter requiring attention”?
Obama and his minions are desparate and offensive — and very, very dangerous!
I find Carney offensive.
One of the greatest fringe benefits to getting rid of Obama will be Carney and his asinine statements appearing in the media much less frequently.
Just add four coffins. ...just a bump in the road.
Your boss is desperate and offensive, you festering little piece of crap.

Take your little red wagon and go home little boy.
No Carney-val, Obama’s comments are offensive, and your attempt at trying to make excuses for them are desperate.
The media is already talking like its over for Romney.
He left out, "and racist."
Hmmmm....Romney struck a nerve : )
That is because the media wants to suppress the Republican vote. Just go out and vote, this is what the lib media wants..the less Republicans who go to the polls the better it is for Obama. I want to see the look on those schmucks faces on Election Day when Romney wins, they will cry voter fraud and racism and all the other BS
