Whatever Romney's reaction, this attack happened on Obama's watch, not Romney's. And whatever happens with the political noise of this situation, it's not going to erase that fact.

True, but most people will understand that there isn't much that Obama could have done.

Romney's comments on the other hand could have be done different. But Romney is an amateur and he showed it.

against Aubry, Sarkozy will win. Aubry is a very bad candidate for prime time : no charisma, no sympathy, muslim connection, stupid ideas,... and sarkozy is a good candidate...

but against hollande, sarkozy will lose."

Exactly, one man looked like a President.....while the other looked like a fool.

I encourage you to stop reading the Drudge Report and just look at reactions to the Romney speech on Twitter. Easier yet, do a search on Google News; easier still, look at the photo I posted before.

(My apologies if I sound more hackish than usual but Romney's speech kindled anger on a fuel of cynicism, so to speak)

twitter is dem stronghold...

That's not true. "Democrat Stronghold" would mean D+5, and the partisan sample of twitter is probably more like D+2.

Junk post.

And 9/11 happened under W's watch.

Reading the 3012 boards dulls one's sense of irony.

Seriously. How many times can we read about the Obamachine 3000 pulling ahead of the Reagantronix QLZ in the race for Mars Mutant Colony's 48 electoral votes? Sheesh!

Well, in itself it's not that big-a-deal. But it fits perfectly in the narrative that Romney will say and do everything to win and that he hasn't the character to be president.

I've heard that Bill Kristol was saying negatives about Romney.

Not true: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/romney-right_652223.html

One can question the timing and tone of Mitt Romneyís statement last night. One can note he wasn't as fluent and clear as he might have been at his press conference this morning. Still, the fact remains that the events of September 11, 2012, represent a big moment for the country. Romney is right to sense this, and to seize on this moment as an occasion to explain the difference between his foreign policy and President Obamaís. Heís right to reject the counsel of the mainstream media, which is to keep quiet and give President Obama a pass.

The more his campaign defends him the longer the story stays a story.....he said what he meant....judge him and move on.

And let's be honest, Obama could take a selfie of his junk in the bathroom mirror with his BlackBerry, have it transferred to canvas and you'd have people saying it ought to be hung in the National Gallery.

Remeber what I said about his inane comment on the number of ships in the US Navy?  I knew way back then this guy should not be given the nuclear button.  Private equity guys should not be in charge of the military.

Quote from: Romney
Iím outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. Itís disgraceful that the Obama Administrationís first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.

What an idiot.

Quote from: cbsnews.com
"Do you realize our Navy is now smaller than any time since 1917? Our Air Force is older and smaller than any time since it was founded in 1947," Romney said. "We have always, since the days of FDR, we've had the capacity to fight two wars at a time, not that we wanted to, but we wanted to have that kind of safety and capacity to defend ourselves. This president is changing that policy saying, 'Oh no, we'll only be able to fight one war at a time.'"

PolitFact said each of the final four years under George W. Bush's term as president saw lower levels of active ships than any of the three years under President Obama. It also said that his statement about the size of the Air Force was credible, but military experts agree that counting the number of ships or aircraft is not a good measurement of defense strength because their capabilities have increased dramatically in recent decades.

I think Castro summed it up best...



I was concerned about Cain, Bachmann, or Palin getting the nuclear button but it appears they were just a distraction to keep us from realizing the true lunacy of Mitt Romney.

On Friday, I'm skipping a free Romney event that would normally cost $2,500 to get in to wait all night to see some crazy Korean man do weird dances. This should say a great deal about the state of the campaign.

I've just seen a tweet that sums Romney's situation right up. His campaign's so dead that he's got the baptism booked for next week.
