« Romney misleads about his pre-existing conditions policy | Main | Goodbye AT&T. Hello Verizon and my new iPhone 5. »

WOW, your account is 180 degrees from how I heard it! I guess I am going to have to stop listening to FOX NEWS?

Mr. Romney has done more than demonstrate his ineptitude in foreign policy matters.

He has demonstrated that he is easily panicked.

And that he is willing to put his political campaign ahead of national interest.

Mr. Romney is not qualified to be president of the United States.

Frank, absolutely. Stop watching Fox News now! Don't wait. Your brain is too important to waste. NBC (Chuck Todd) has a good rundown of what happened, along with many other REPUTABLE news sources. See:

Yesterday we noted that Mitt Romney, down in the polls after the convention, was throwing the kitchen sink at President Obama. Little did we know the kitchen sink would include -- on the anniversary of 9/11 -- one of the most over-the-top and (it turns out) incorrect attacks of the general-election campaign.

Last night after 10:00 pm ET, Romney released a statement on the attacks on the U.S. embassies in Egypt and Libya. After saying he was “outraged” by these attacks and the death of an American consulate worker, Romney said, “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.”

Yet after learning every piece of new information about those attacks, the Romney statement looks worse and worse -- and simply off-key. First, Romney was referring to a statement that the U.S. embassy in Egypt issued condemning the “efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.”

But that embassy statement, which the White House has distanced itself from, was in reference to an anti-Islam movie and anti-Islam pastor Terry Jones, and it came out BEFORE the embassy attacks began.

Dear Brian,

Perhaps Romney is seeking the Presidency because: "This is not mere class warfare. That’s just a tactic. The goal, as it always has been for his kind throughout history, is to accumulate POWER that he can wield without accountability or checks and balances."

Or: maybe this citation is merely an unfair and/or abusive characterization which bears no merit.

(Sorry, I cannot "will" to do other than consider and present this posted remark.)

You all have egg on your faces now! Turns out Obama and the MSM are the liars. Wake up and smell the Obama stink or before you know it this country won't exist

Hey, Sunny, you forgot to cite evidence about what Obama and the mainstream media lied about. Guess you're the liar.

I repeat the truth: Romney was caught in a lie about Obama excusing the attackers. When Romney said that, the attacks in Libya and Egypt hadn't even happened, and Obama, nor the administration, ever excused the attackers.

Get your facts straight before you post another falsehood on this blog.
