    LAS VEGAS -- Speaking at a raucous campaign rally in Las Vegas, President Obama vowed to seek justice for those responsible for killing diplomats in an attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya and issued a stern warning to enemies of the United States.

    “We want to send a message to all around the world who would do us harm. No act of violence will shake the resolve of the United States of America,” Obama said to a cheering crowd estimated at 8,000 people. “I want to assure you we will bring their killers to justice.”

    Obama spoke hours after his administration confirmed the death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and Foreign Service officer Sean Smith. The men were two of four killed after protesters attacked and set fire to the consulate in Benghazi. The mob was reportedly angered by an anti-Islamic film promo circulated on the Internet and made in the U.S.

    Of course....
    But they rag on Romney for making comments unbecoming a presidential candidate...
    Yet the left has pretty much moved on from this tragedy...

    Obama does what he does best ....speechafying.
    Whipping up the crowd.

    Well, Obama did call the new Libyan President from Colorado where he was campaigning Wednesday.

    So that's some consolation. :cool:

    I'm so glad he thinks this is a serious problem.

    If we could just get him to do his job...........well.........fuck it. He's more dangerous when he's working than when he's campaigning. :eusa_whistle:

    Give the media a few more days this will be forgotten about.
    But not Romney's comments...that will be hammered home till election day.

    That's why Obama is up 7% in Ohio and 5% in Florida and Virginia-he keeps campaigning.

    He's not really up.....his paid pollsters just claim he's up. He's holding a law-suit over the heads of the directors of Gallup. They're just giving him the numbers he's asking for.

    He's really even with Romney and a new poll will most likely show that his numbers are crashing after the mishandling of these embassy attacks.

    Wrong. Note the date and time of the story:

    By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 9/13/12 6:42 PM EDT
    The latest NBC/WSJ/Marist swing state surveys of Ohio, Florida and Virginia do not hold good news for Mitt Romney folowing the two weeks of party conventions.

    President Obama leads Ohio, a crucial battleground, by seven points, according to the surveys. He leads by five points in the other two. And the undecideds are few.

    The polls were taken from Sept. 9 through Sept. 11, during a window when national surveys have indicated a convention bump for the president. Romney's campaign has warned the media against reading too much into the post-campaign "sugar high."

    What's your next excuse?

    That's why libtards are such shitballs...they don't care about reality, as long as their chosen messiah runs an impressive campaign. Qualified is not a word in their vocabulary. It's all about the 'entertainment value', isn't it.
    Yeah, fuch obama, and the horse he fucked to get the job...

    Epic Fail

    NBC is propping up Obama.

    I wouldn't trust a thing they said. No poll they do is honest. Politico is a propaganda arm of the Obama Administration.

    So nice try.
