Skip to comments.Poll: More Americans side with Obama than Romney on Libya (no breakdown data)
Posted on 09/17/2012 3:48:47 PM PDT by libh8er
A plurality of Americans approved of President Obamas handling of events in the Mideast, but by a wide margin Americans had a negative reaction to the way his Republican opponent Mitt Romney has reacted to the events, according to a Pew Research Center poll.
The new poll found that, of those Americans who had paid attention to the protests, riots and killing of Americans in recent days, 45% approved of Obamas moves, while 36% disapproved. Judgments of Romney were far more negative, with only 26% approving and 48% disapproving.
Romney came under fire even from Republicans last week when he condemned Obama for what he said was apologizing to and sympathizing with those who waged the attacks. He based that on a statement from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo that did not apologize and was released during protests but before any attacks had been made.

All this says is that 52% didn’t agree with how a sitting President handled the ME crisis.
Time for some new head cutting videos. That’ll sober up the stupid Americans.
LOL, exactly what did ROmney do that the morons disapprove of and why do they approve of a POTUS lying to their faces.
A group of RINOS criticized Romney to get into the news cycle and we know their names. I can’t believe how dumb this nation has become that we approve of the failed apologies of Barack Obama, but disapprove of a strong statement for American values and pride in such values. Disgraceful.
I guess the masses really are under the sway of Obama’s propaganda wing.
Apparently the USSA media did it’s job. Mission accomplished.
In related news, 100% of the Obama voters also hoped that the Mideast unrest would not result in any of their freebies being curtailed.
80% of America responded that they believe mainstream news to be highly accurate.
This is a BS poll. There are no internals, it means nothing. They could have polled a bunch of Democrats with some token independents and Republicans thrown in.
I call BS.
I’m starting to think Americans are ingesting ‘bath salts’ by a wide margin too.. Americans aren’t only easily fooled by a lying, corrupt and criminal regime, they’re the stupidest people on Earth.
Err, just what IS 0bama’s position on Libya? Anyone know?
“The most endangered species,
The honest man,” - Rush, Natural Science
Guess they haven’t heard the latest about obama wanting to release the blind sheik to Egypt.
Oh hey, that’s great and so, so spontaneous!
You know, I can’t wait to see the day that the morons of this country get their asses kicked from one side of the world to the other.
Although, I suspect that they are so stupid that they will agree with those whom are kicking their asses from one side of the world to the other.
What are they standing on with him, he hasn’t done anything but apologize.
I believe 0% of anything they print.
Joseph Goebbels would be proud of our "free" press if he were alive today.
Time to go to the Times website, find ‘contact us’ and have at it!
The nice thing about this issue is that you can lie and lie and will believe it, but the issue doesn’t go away and you can buy it with someone else’s money from taxes. This is not over and we will get one of our cities destroyed because the msm is so complicit with this loser potus. Plus, they are so stupid that they don’t even consider that it will be one of the liberal cities.
Who are they polling? Who would side with this limp-wristed reaction. Nay, I’m not sure it was a reaction. Obama and Hillary delliberately sent our Ambassador to his death and prohibited any protection of him. Who agrees with that?
When they take the time to read media outside the country (like the Daily Mail article), they are usually furious.
The ME headache for Obama isn’t over. Like Colon Powell said: “Mr. pResident, if you break it you own it.”
Who are the sheeple going to believe, the liberal media or their lying eyes?
Polls like this are meant to discourage us. Ignore them. If we turn out to vote, and bring our conservative friends with us, we’ll win.
Frankly, I am a little pissed off at Romney's team for not making that crystal effing clear.
What if ALL THE FACTS WERE PRESENTED BEFORE those being polled, were asked the question?
As is, the only question the poll is answering is “Has the media complicity in the Obama lie been successful?”
Statement from US Enbassy in Cario
“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,”
This is what Hillary said:
“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind,”
This is what Romney said
I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks,
Romney was dead on.
Is this a news article or an opinion piece? I'm really confused about what Romney actually did that, a week later, people are still harping on it? Whatever it was, "even Republicans(?) have condemned it. Sounds drastic, but I'm guessing the Republicans are named Kristol, Erickson and Carlson?
How is it that Team Romney knows how to defeat Conservatives but not Communists??
POLL: MORE AMERICANS BELIEVE IN BIG FOOT THAN ANYTHING THE LA TIMES PRINTS I polled my four dogs. They’re all Republicans, but the little one is sneaky and he would vote for Obama if he gave him a cookie.....the dog, not Obama.
I still hear ABC news going on about "ill made comments by Mitt Romney." Where are they coming from? He was right on the money. They always include that 'even republicans thought his comments inappropriate'.
I was live on Twitter when this happened and the one jackass on our side I did see go down that road was the guy from Red State - Erickson. He was/is a moron.
Come on people; if you believe any thing the LA Slimes prints, I have some Somali property I want to sell you.
Even if the Slimes got a poll saying something like this; they will spin it for their almighty Obastard, no matter who was polled or how the questions were framed.
The LA Slimes has been in the pocket of every corrupt democrap since the late 40s.
What are you mumbling to yourself about?
The Romney campaign is imploding before our eyes. They aren’t fight back and the candidate is saying stupid things out on the trail.
I felt in 2008 McCain was in cahoots with 0bama to throw the election......I am starting to think Romney is throwing the race to 0bama. The fix is in I am afraid.
I do. Time for ropes and oak limbs.
What this shows is that the State Owned Media successfully confused the issue to make it look like Romney had a knee jerk reaction. Romney’s words, “I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi.”
“It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”
His words were in response to words the U.S. Embassy in Cairo issued with a statement condemning the YouTube film that was used as the rallying point for the rioters. The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.
Even though the Embasy statement was before the seige by protesters, it was reitterated after the breach.
Romney gained on Obama in all relevant polls over the past 5 days.
Either the poll is flat-out wrong or Americans simply don’t care about the Middle East. Likely both.
Kristallnacht was successful too.
Soon to be forgotten.
AMEN to that.
Mumbling?? Have no idea what you mean, but I will repeat...Romney and team need to be as hard on Obama as they were on their Conservative opponents in the primaries.
They and the Republican media assured us that only Romney could beat Obama and his commie media.
A group of people thought the way the LSM told them
Even the Sunday Shows couldn't believe how much time had been wasted on the media stirring up Romney's "gaffe" while ignoring the actual news in the Middle East.
Now that we find out just how false and misleading the Obama regime has been about the video's role in the Libyan murder of our ambassador what will people say?
A statement the Embassy DOUBLED-DOWN ON later, L.A. Slimes!
A statement the White House was forced to denounce, L.A. Slimes.
Americans don’t side with obama on a damn thing. People who live in the United States might side with him, but Americans don’t.
REALLY? They now approve of war crimes?
A POW named Momar Gaddafi was raped, tortured, abused and murdered. And here's what Secretary of Hate Hillary Clinton had to say about it, "We came, we saw, he died!".
