    and Americans:

    "America will not tolerate attacks against our citizens and against our embassies. We’ll defend also our constitutional rights of speech and assembly and religion.
    We have confidence in our cause in America. We respect our Constitution. We stand for the principles our Constitution protects. We encourage other nations to understand and respect the principles of our Constitution, because we recognize that these principles are the ultimate source of freedom for individuals around the world."

    What a shame we have to rely on a presidential CANDIDATE, instead of our actual PRESIDENT, to say the appropriate thing when we are attacked.

    Then obama followed Romney (as has become his habit) with his own statements, once he was shamed into it.

    And then issued an apology for his apology:

    "
    The White House is disavowing a statement from their own Cairo embassy that apologized for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.
    “The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” a senior administration official told POLITICO…"

    Romney leading obama around by his nose is just becoming an issue. Will obama be able to stop Romney from assuming leadership now? Probably not because he doesn't even recognize that his leadership position is being shifted out from under him bit by bit.

    Nope. The majority feel that way, Jillian. You're coccooned by those of like mind in your liberal city, and have lost touch with the rest of the nation.

    Certainly no leftwing loon thinks so. Leftwing loons think they are in the majority. The world can see obama's failure of leadership and the void being filled by someone else. Romney makes a statement then obama is shamed into making one of his own. Absolutely obama would have preferred to get on that plane to Vegas rather than having his time wasted by making a nonsense and mush mouthed statement. He couldn't. He couldn't because Romney had already addressed the nation. Romney took questions, obama wouldn't waste his precious campaign time.

    The Cairo Embassy by definition speaks for the US government.
