    It took two weeks for Romney to call Benghazi a terrorist attack
    The funniest thing about Romney's debate blunder on Libya isn't that he was wrong about what Obama said, it's the hypocrisy of the charge to begin with, considering that there doesn't seem to be any evidence that Romney himself ever used the words "terror" or "terrorist" in relation to this attack until two weeks later, on September 25.
    A summary of what was said and when below the fold, with special thanks to Zack Beauchamp at Think Progress for collecting most of this here.

    Cause the administration lied to the American people that it was the movie for two weeks.

    Romney did not get intel briefs.

    Believe it or not, there was a time when American instinctively trusted what a POTUS told us.


    Obama has destroyed that metric.

    He is a stain on the Office.

    So if it took two weeks, what's all the hoopla about Romney Shooting first and aiming later?? Talk about liberal spin.

    Your guy went in front of the UN and blamed it on a movie, he went on TV and blamed it on a movie, he stumped in several states and blamed it on a movie.

    Your guy has no clue what he's doing. The DailyKos has again regurgitated a lie, no one believes them or the President anymore. We're so tired of the lies he spews!!

    This suprises you?:eusa_eh:

    They also lied about weapons of mass destruction. The difference is we went to war for many years over a lie. This one we didn't.

    Also, this seems pretty petty. Arguing over the lable of terrorism. Weather an act of violence is terrorism matters not. Americans are dead no matter what you want to call it. But hey, if it makes the Republicans feel better....:eusa_whistle:

    Supposing that you're right - what difference did the label that Obama use actually make?

    Dosen't surprise me. Expect it w/ this administration.

    Nothing is as it appears, no words mean what he says and most importantly it is NEVER his fault.

    Proves al-Qeada is stronger and spread to Northern Africa. It proves the "war on terror" is far from over.

    This is diametric to the Obama narrative told to the American people for political gain..
