Romney's verbal attack on our President, over the Libyan terrorist strike at our embassy, border's on a stupid variety of treason

Nobody blamed Pres. Bush for the 9/11 attack. Nor was anyone blamed for the initial 90's terrorist attack in NY City.
But it is (at the very least) infantile foolishness to blame the US, in any manner, for attacks on its embassies. It is the internatilnally accepted obligation of various host countries to protect all diplomatic personnel, and all our embassies are legally considered to be US territory,
Whenever and wherever the US is attacked, patriots should unite to protect us (US!) all.

  • Sep 14 2012: My point gets masked in all this politicizing chat.
    MY POINT: WHENEVER THE U.S.A. IS ATTACKED, ALL PATRIOTS PICK UP THE GUNS AND LINE UP- TOGETHER, AGAINST OUR AGGRESSOR.
    People who want to make political capital out of the USA getting hurt will never make sense to me.

      Sep 14 2012: Mr Poree, As I have stated and proven on the comments below. This was a response to the OFFICIAL release from the Egyptian Ambassador which was later affirmed by the Secretary of State Ms Clinton. Again confirmed and noted in my comments below. Gov Romney's response was in regards to the Ambassador and Secretary Clintons response in the form of an appology. Since these people work directly for the President guess who takes the heat. As Harry Truman once said the buck stops here (the desk of the president).

      Again this was not political gain it was an argument against the appology from the state department. This is not a new discussion as the president himself has appoligised for the United States in the past during his bow to the muslim kings tour.

      I accept your argument that we are are patriots and love the United states but before firing the first volley lets us do what Ambassador Steven died for ... seek a lasting solution that would preclude this type of event from reoccuring. I am a vet also ... but war should be the finial solution not the first.
