    The only "terror" he talked about that day was 9-11-01... not what had happened the night before.

    He vowed to get to bottom of it, but no.. he didnt call it an act of terror.

    Sure he did and did so again in Co. the very next day.

    "So what I want all of you to know is that we are going to bring those who killed our fellow Americans to justice. I want people around the world to hear me: To all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. It will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. No act of violence shakes the resolve of the United States of America," he said.

    Funny... I don't see the words 'The Benghazi attack was an' in front of 'act of terror'.

    Do you? (squints) Perhaps you could highlight those words for me???

    Doesn't explicitly say it was an act of terror, or that the video was the cause, but he implies it. Which is pretty much par for the course, he always couches his remarks in words and phrases that lead you to believe something that he never actually said directly.

    We did.

    The words 'The attack in Benghazi were an act of terror' do not appear.

    Typical republican double talk. He was talking about the Benghazi attacks in the speech just before he said "act of terror" and what followed those words was more on Benghazi. Yet when he mentions acts of terror, the Benghazi attacks are not what he was talking about. In mid sentence he decided to talk about something else for 2 words then go back to Benghazi. Classic. Just friggin classic. I believe he wasn't talking about Benghazi like I believe Romney's tax plan will work solely of the strength that he says it will. Facts? What facts?

    How is it if you're saying that Obama said it was an act or terror on the 12th, that he couldn't say it was a terrorist attack on The View?

    yet, I seem to recall some fucking moron liberals stating something about no 'declaration of war' when going into Iraq, even though the use of force authorization gave Bush the right to do so.......Or is it that Bush and Republicans MUST use exact phrasing, while Obama and liberals were giving the people the 'gist' of his thoughts?

    Get a grip people. The President did NOT declare this as an act of terrorists until Sept 20th.

    Why is it so hard for you people to just act like men and say, "Yeah, he didn't say that."

    (smile) No he didn't, as Candy Crowley and the good folks at CNN pointed out this morning.

    He started in the very next day blaming it on the video and calling it a "spontaneous" attack caused by said video.

    Grow up and accept the facts.

    The President of the United States went to the Rose Garden, and started laying the foundation for a national reponse to the embassy ambush, within a few hours of the event!

    Obama Called Libya Attack Terrorism Long Before Romney | ThinkProgress

    No Republican has ever wanted a response to even Osama bin laden's attack. The actual perpetrators went off one way. Bush-Cheney sent off the troops into opposite directions, in some "Keystone Kops" kind of response.

    There is actually a transcript of who said what, about the ambush.

    Notice that Romney-Ryan never once, even mention an "abmush(?)!" Here are Two Stupid Guys, again wanting to show themselves to be, "Way Too Stupid!"

    "Crow, James Crow: Shaken, Not Stirred!"
    (Now on Lands of Many Nations: Anyone wonders again about the suitcases full of money that identifies Republicans, with a business background!")

    Wow, you're right he never used the words 'Benghazi', all he said was "we had a tough day a couple of days ago, for four Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Libya." before he told them that their "Act of Terror" will be punished. Shame on him.......

    I'm gonna say this for you like I have said 1000 times before. I really don't care what tactic Bush used to kill Saddam. I'm just glad he killed that SOB and the world is a much better place without his ass and I honestly truly and sincerely thank President Bush for that from the bottom of my heart.

    Your man told an outright lie in a debate that was watched from one end of this nation to the other. No way to wiggle out of that. The President did characterize the attack as an act of terrorism, no other reasonable conclusion from that transcript.

    Romney's statements and reactions during that crisis demonstrated that he is not fit to sit in the Oval Office.

    HC Premiums up 2500 not down like Bammy promised
    Gas up

    please show me the words 'their act of terror will be punished'.

    I'll wait...

    No, I won't You can't show me those words because he did not SAY those words. You keep putting words into Obama's mouth... 'he said this... he said that...' yet you fail to show those words you attribute to Obama in the transcript.

    I don't care what your 'interpretation' of Obama's statement is.. I care what his actual words were... and he did NOT say the Benghazi attack was an act of terror.

    Live with the FAIL, dumb ass.
