Time to FACT CHECK, did Romney misstates facts on attacks?

bob 2012/09/13 16:48:13
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney seriously mischaracterized what had happened in a statement accusing President Barack Obama of "disgraceful" handling of violence there and at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.
Romney had the facts, jack, on the attacks
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was "G.W. Bush right" on the facts on the attacks
Mitt Romney was not heartbroken by this terrible loss of state department personnel; it was just an opportunity to Attack Obama
Mitt Romney is just like G.W. Bush doing Cowboy Diplomacy a.k.a. stupid
At Least Romney won’t have to fire Ambassador Chris Stevens and other members of the state department

    Romney spoke the truth and we got the SOS from the leader from behind. The left attacked Romney because our gutless President Obama still won't recognize Islam as a threat, call a terrorist attack a terrorist attack, and won't call the war on terror the war on terror. Romney is ten times the man Obama will ever be.

    He was so Gun Ho to get the jump on the President, that he didn't wait to get the facts he just jumped right. That statement was issued by the embassy trying to calm the crowd down. The statement was made before the deaths of the Ambassador and the other three Americans. There were ten Libyans that died also that were with the Ambassador.

    I wanted to ask President Obama about the facts, but between his fundraiser in Las Vegas and his appearance on the Letterman Show, he was unavailable for comment. Biden has yet to come forth with any information as well. BTW bob, remember when G W Bush was roundly criticized by the likes of Michael Moore and yourself because he failed to run, panic-stricken, from a classroom full of elementary school children on 9-11? Where is Michael Moore today (the all-you-can-eat buffet, probably).

    Romney doesn't even know what is going on and I don''t think the USA understands either because of ignorance or what I don't know. Obama is very smart. ( CYBER WAR,)where he knows the facts and had shut down the capabilities of Iran and other countries nuclear bases to attack us with their weapons of Mass destruction. Does anyone else know about that. Better cyber than on land where young kids are killed. Don't you agree, or do you like to watch war on TV and see young men killed when there is another way to fight? I think that Obama HAS recognized Islam as a threat extremely well. A lot of people don't seem to know about this because it wasn't talked about too much because of the secrecy of it. But He did have to say something about it but didn't shout it out for the whole world to know. He's smart! The less said about it the less our enemies know how it's been going down . VERY WISE! As for Romney being 10 times the man that Obama is , well, lets just say it's the other way around....................... ; )

    You're gonna eat your words when that nuke comes flying at you that has a big Iranian flag painted on it. Obama hasn't stopped anyone from doing anything. What delusional made up world do you live in, anyway????? And yeah, better cyber when possible, but better to take it to them than to have them come over here, or send those nukes, unless you just have a death wish?????? And if you do, I hope you get your wish. Happy Birthday!!!!!

    Did Obama mispeak while on the campaign trail yesterday(while the Middle East implodes) when he said Egypt is not an ally and then said "oh my bad, they really are an ally'.It's all mutiple choice with your guy. And that extensive foreign affairs experience developed on the streets of Chicago as a community organizer have made him a foreign affairs expert.

    Hey now, you know that he's the most intellectual mumbo jumbo whatever they claimed he was when they said he didn't need to be in on the briefings because he was smarter than anyone else in the world!!! Come on, cut the world's present Einstein a break. I mean really, he had ALL of our problems figured out, had ALL the answers to solve those problems, and all it took was $5 trillion in less than 4 years - OUTSPENDING Bush after blaming him for being "UNPATRIOTIC" for leaving a $480 billion deficit after 8 years. Oh yeah, He's the intelligent one alright.

    Well, when he lets the brotherhood into the White House, and shuts our ally BBN out, it seems fairly obvious where his loyalties are, doesn't it?? But the clouded, mesmerized, brainwashed, Obamanized minds are incapable of seeing anything but good from their Community-Organizer-In-Chief. The blind leading the blind, plain and simple.

    He has no idea what happens in the real world, nor does he know who the players are. He has no right to comment on anyones decision to act or not to act, remember, he decided to go the France during Vietnam, vs answering America's call. He should never open his pie hole on matters of this nature period. And he called our fighting men and women a "Laundry List". How in the world you want to be president, and speak of its President and the troops in this matter at a time when we all should be banding together. President my 1 19 19!.

    Romney's a moron, and basically calling the guys that died in those attacks "disgraceful" considering they were the ones that issued the remarks he can't stand.

    I hope the GOP realizes this is the kind of leadership they want in the White House. I hope they get laughed at for the next 4 years for that, like they did the last 4 years for Palin. LOL.

    All you right winged Cowboys should do something besides toe the party line.
    EVERYONE (including members of his own party ) knows that Romney is a buffoon when it comes to foreign policy. He most assuredly will lead us into Iran looking for more WMD's. He will bow to the pressure of Israel and we will lose more money and more important, more American lives. But it won't be his sons lives. It will be YOUR sons lives.
    Being a diplomat requires diplomacy in the face of urgent situations. To know the facts before you act is smart and responsible.
    It amazes me that people seem to want the president to get in a plane and fly to Libya as some sort of response to the violence. The white house has people, including the CIA to investigate happenings around the world. The President's job is to wait for THE FACTS before reacting. He can do that from Vegas or your backyard.
    That anyone would try to blame the white house for this tragedy is irresponsible at best.
    I understand that loss of life is terrible. But losing more lives as a reaction without all the info, would be more tragic.
    Romney tried to gain poll numbers by attacking Obama at a vulnerable moment. That shows his character. BTW...it didn't work.
    That shows what kinda of president ...

    You people better wake up and see where a Romney presidency will lead. If he is elected, reach out to him and ask if your sons can go to Canada with his sons. Otherwise, mark my words, some of them won't be around to see his economic plans fail.
