Safe Mode: On
Obama Camp Condemns Romney Before Condemning Attacks In Egypt, Libya

At 11:53pm last night Talking Points Memo released a statement from the Obama campaign condemning Mitt Romney for criticizing something the White House itself disavowed -- an appalling apology issued by the State Department.

Eight hours later, President Obama finally got around to condemning the monsters who attacked us on our own soil and killed our fellow citizens.

Yesterday, on the 11th anniversary of September 11, the Obama White House snubbed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accepted an invitation from David Letterman, and apologized to Islamists upset over a film that mocks Islam and Mohammed -- something "artists" in America do to Christianity with my tax dollars on a fairly regular basis.

First off: Why is our Embassy apologizing for a film no one has seen and apologizing for freedom of speech and expression? In a word, that's un-American. And let's remember that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton doubled down on the apology. Last night, though, the White House finally disavowed the apology, but now the hypocritical and wildly dishonest Obama campaign is lashing out at Mitt Romney for being critical of the same apology the White House itself disavowed.

Here's the Romney statement:

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.

So I guess it's okay for President Obama to criticize that disgraceful apology but not Romney. And now the left is claiming the apology in question from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was made before the compound was attacked. But it's just a fact that the on Twitter and elsewhere, even after the attack, that the Embassy defended and stood by the apology.

And let me reiterate that after the attack, Hillary doubled down on it.

Via TPM: Here's the hysterical and dishonest response from the Obama campaign:


“We are shocked that, at a time when the United States of America is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in Libya, Governor Romney would choose to launch a political attack,” Obama’s campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt said in a statement.

Not only is the Obama campaign's "shock" completely manufactured -- damn that Romney for criticizing the same apology Obama just disavowed! -- but the Obama campaign is dishonestly trying to make it sound as though Romney was exploiting a tragic death. Moreover, I'm unaware of any condemnation of the Islamists who attack and killed our embassy personnel made before the campaign condemned Mitt Romney.

So who's really playing politics here?

If only the Obama campaign could find half the outrage they saved for Romney to level at the murderers.


Well, you know, priorities.

  • Obama made the most pathetic speech this morning about the attack, without answering any questions. And, yes, he apologized for the movie, saying "We reject all efforts to denigrate the beliefs of others".

      The dude is just not prepared to take on the responsibilities of 'leader of the Free World'.

      he has the same shoot from the hip attitude that caused so much trouble in the Bush administration, and Americans are tired of that shit.

That is sad when liberals love party more than country and right and wrong. This happened under the Obama watch, right?

    • @stevecore Nonsense. What I see is the Libyan government supporting the USA and this story is swinging around. It looks like there will be cooperation going after these Al Qaeda thugs that some of the dimmer bulbs on here have been pretending rule Libya. It's ultimately going to help clear out some of the more radical vipers.

      What I find troubling is the negligent lack of security at the consulate, however I expect much of that was the now deceased ambassador's call rather than Obama's.

  • Reminds me of Jimmy Carter. Obama can talk a good game he just is clueless when it comes to doing the work. Obama can paint Romney as anything he wants but Obama can't run on his record. Bin Ladin is dead so what NATO troops still die in Afghanistan had no effect on war at all. Obama saved GM no he didn't he kept GM from Chapter 11 which would have meant that the UAW contract would go out the door by the judge. Obama saved the Union bosses not GM. Obama did not save GM jobs they lost millions of More..

      -Arab news agencies find the fucking thing (hmmmm), and start playing it on the news as if it's a big thing in America.

Turn the news on look at the protesters outside the Cairo US Embassy. I don't think Romney would have spent the billions on the bombs and cruise missiles to take Gaddafi out and free Libya.

  • Obama had no right to apologize for the alleged movie (so far, only "trailers" has been seen) by a person who may be as fictitious as Obama's ability to lead the US in times of crisis.

    We have free speech in the US and no foreign government or terrorist group. This was a private exercise in expression and not government sponsored. By apologizing for it, Obama is undermining free speech as exercised by private citizens.

    And when are Islamic leaders going to apologize for the anti-Am More..

  • People piece together the timeline and realize Romney was not only exploiting the situation for political points, he:
    A) condemned the White House for something they had no role in
    B) Condemned an "apology" that was actually put out before the attacks, to try and prevent them
    C)Was a gigantic cockmonger for sticking to his guns and trying to pretend he was somehow still right to say what he did. "We won't let fact checkers run our campaign!"

  • Wait, was it a race to see who could say sorry first? No.

    Obama saying sorry about the film is the INTELLIGENT thing to do, but I guess anyone watching Fox wouldn't understand that.

    Trying to make this a political issue is more disrespectful to those that died than anything Mit or Obama did or didn't do.

    American politics. Taking stupid to another level daily.
