Should the President had something to say that was less measured?

President Barack Obama on Wednesday “strongly condemned” the Islamist attack that killed four American diplomats in Libya, but he also used the same statement to condemn Americans’ criticism of Islam.

“While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants,” he said in a 7:21 a.m. statement.

The attack in Libya came as Islamists also broke into the U.S. embassy in Egypt, and marks the growing clout of popular Islamist groups following the U.S.-backed removal of those countries’ authoritarian governments.

Obama’s two-sided message came only a few hours after Gov. Mitt Romney accused him of sympathizing with the Islamists who attacked the U.S diplomatic sites on the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2011 attack by other Islamists that killed 3,000 Americans.

“I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt,” Romney said. But, he added, it “is 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,” said his late-night Sept. 11 statement.

Romney’s sharp statement came after news reports revealed that the Cairo embassy tried to appease a planned Sept. 11 protest which was called by Islamists who oppose any criticism of Islam in any country.

The Islamist protestors occupied part of the embassy, and tore down the U.S. flag. They said they were angry about a movie being shot in California that highlights many damaging statements and actions attributed by orthodox Muslims to Islam’s 7th century prophet, Muhammad.

    Do you think That The Presidents response could have been stronger?
    When those murdering, blood thirsty, whack jobs invade our embassies, they are invading the US. An invasion, used to, in the days when Real Men were in the White House, meant war. We know he is spineless, so doesn't it seem fair to reason that every single other earthling knows it too?

    Yes I do - he looked bored and, of course, he had to fly to Vegas for a big fund raiser - this cut into his campaign

    Obama spoke with his usual apologist spin. I expect nothing more from him and am just waiting for my opportunity to vote him out of office.

    Thank You, I hope that we get him out of office very soon. Today would be good.
