    "We don't need wingtip cowboys. We don't need shoot-from-the-hip diplomacy. And when Mitt Romney first responded to what was going on in Libya, his own party called him out for insensitivity. He has done nothing but politicize this issue, when what we need to do is find out what happened, and do that as Americans, not as Democrats and Republicans."

    man up and admit Obama was wrong. Can you imagine the bloody screams that would be happening if this was under bush. Katrina was dogging him to his end days and Obama has gotten away with so much worse that HE personally had control of.

    The father of Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya who was killed in the attack in Benghazi last month, said his son’s death shouldn’t be politicized in the presidential campaign.

    “It would really be abhorrent to make this into a campaign issue,” Jan Stevens, 77, said in a telephone interview from his home in Loomis, California, as he prepares for a memorial service for his son next week.

    Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee, has criticized President Barack Obama for not providing adequate security in Libya, saying the administration has left the country exposed to a deadly terrorist attack.

    The ambassador’s father, a lawyer, said politicians should await the findings of a formal investigation before making accusations or judgments.

    “The security matters are being adequately investigated,” Stevens said. “We don’t pretend to be experts in security. It has to be objectively examined. That’s where it belongs. It does not belong in the campaign arena.” Stevens said he has been getting briefings from the State Department on the progress of the investigation.

    Must be nice to be for a failed idea that has done nothing beside fail. :badgrin: Obama lied and used it to attack our first amendment.

    This is a fact. Don't like it then get something solid.

    What do you call going on in front of the American people saying it's a protest only to be caught red handed?

    Must be nice to have no honor. LOL.

    Seriously, Dante, why do you have so little honor that you have to cover Obama's ass? You seriously think that Romney is going to take SSi, Medicare away. :badgrin: I somehow seriously doubt it.

    Stop defending the liar and snake.
