    Poor leadership on display once again… Delayed reaction from WH and mixed messages from his team… Couldn’t run a successful hot dog stand on this type of execution.

    The President’s canned, cliched response “I condemn the attacks…”, and “Our thoughts and prayers…”, just ain’t gonna cut it. It’s an act of war. DO SOMETHING!

    Where is the anger and outrage from our President? The time for diplomacy is over. Kowtowing to these people and apologizing for America makes you weak. Going to blame George Bush for this one too. After all it was you who helped these people in Libya. This is the payback you get. Let me guess your best idea was to blame this on the “misguided individuals” that put out this little movie that you think caused this. I am so sick of this guy and all of his policies, his apologies, his snubbing of our allies, and smartass remarks. Time for a change.

    • Orangeone

      He’s waiting for Romney/Ryan to tell America what they would do so he can copy it. He’s also timing any response for a poll bump.

    • Cruz2016!!!

      He’s too busy going on Letterman and campaigning…Who in their right mind calls this man a leader? He is a horrible, horrible president.

      • http://twitter.com/angelcandy54 candy martin

        yep, Letterman, Jimmy Falon, JZ and Beyonce, oh and don’t forget the Muslim leaders………..

      • candy martin

        Obama is the main reason I don’t watch Letterman or Falon, especially after Falon’s horrible disrespect of Michele Bachman.

      • redheadgrl

        He has no shame if he goes on Letterman to crack jokes while American citizens are being terrorized and attacked around the world in our own Embassies.

        • AngryFreeBird

          Has time to go on letterman but not to see Netanyahu.

    • http://twitter.com/angelcandy54 candy martin

      No anger, no outrage, just ”Oh gee I’m so sorry you were offended”. Obama is a embarrassment, he is the antichrist, he is a muslim. He is trying to bring this country down so we can be ruled by Islam. I will renounce my citizenship before I live under their rule! Vote Romney/Ryan in 2012!!

  • allenbarr

    does anyone remember someone once saying for every one of ours you kill we will kill 10,000. it was not BHO for sure.

  • CapitalG

    FAUXbama is a weak leader and a total failure. I am so sick of the media ignoring his incompetence and constantly praising him as if he were doing something right.

    The world is going to be paying for FAUXbama’s failed leadership for decades.

      Why did you put that in quotation marks?

        this is where Chip got it, though inappropriately applied:
        Actual quote from “The Audacity of Hope” [pg. 261]: Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

  • Cruz2016!!!

    I can’t get over the people on twitter who are blaming Sam Bacile, the films director and producer, for the killings in Libya! How ignorant are people!!

  • mnsoccermom

    Such a peaceful religion/people (NOT!) This comes after the administration apologizes for hurt feelings in that community. Dear President…the war on terror is NOT over as you so proudly proclaimed! YOUR war on your brothers in arms may be but America’s war on terror is not!

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Appalling and outrageous, I’m just flat out of vocabulary on this. That little prick should be ashamed to call himself president.

    Wow, such ignorance on twitter. These people are blaming the film maker instead of the murderers! I guess it’s radical to make a movie now. @MzJulesNYC
    Radical Jews are terrorist to Our freedom and safety
    in America. Sam Bacile should be in Jail right now for the murder of
    innocent Americans

  • ObamaPelosi

    So the President said they carried Steven’s body to the hospital where he later died???? The picture shows him being shamelessly dragged to the streets (he looks dead)!!! This is a disgrace!! I am horrified and upset and livid at the Obama Administration’s response to this horrific attack against our Ambassador. Something serious needs to be done. Obama needs to be unelected and new leadership needs to be put in quickly!!!!!! This is a disgrace and it is evil and it is unjustifiable. On top of all of that, the Embassy says we shouldn’t “hurt feelings of Muslims”. But the killing of American citizens is totally okay!!! Thanks for that reality check on where your loyalties are!!!!

    • rickbiehle

      Damn the murderous islamics who kill the innocent as a 911 statement. May you be fed to the hogs as slop

    This story will not gain traction in the MSM, mainly because they do want it too. The story from here on out, will be how well Obama is handling the situation, and how poorly Romney understands foreign policy.
    The picture of ambassador Stevens in the sitting position clearly shows that he is alive, and conscious – you can clearly see that he is fully supporting his head on his own. The picture where he is slung over someones shoulder is another thing, you can not tell if he is alive or not. I believe that the reports that say that he was physically strangled by one or more persons will prove to be accurate.

  • rickbiehle

    Obama apologizes to the killers for their being offended by our right to free speech? Give me a break. Where is the cry of outrage and demand for justice on these animals?

  • redheadgrl

    I’m getting angrier and angrier by the minute. If our Commander in Chief won’t protect our citizens overseas, BRING THEM HOME AND SHUT OFF FUNDING TO THOSE COUNTRIES.

  • DANEgerus

    Another black eye for the Libyan ambulance service that delivered Qaddafi to hospital… uh… guys… where are the other 3 dead Americans? Did they die on the trip to the Hospital too?

  • TJ

    Fuck you for those killers!!!! you are NOT killing peoples because of movie!! They forgot what U.S has been done to them for freedom Christ sake!!.. Even Syrian leader as a Muslim also killed his own peoples without mercy as well as Gadaffi in Libya. Viva America find the killers and bring them to justice!!! God Bless America!!!

  • Liars Never Win

    It appears the Religion of Peace may have raped and strangled our Ambassador. Obama needs to apologize again before they really get mad.

  • gator

    Blaming Dear Leader is forbidden is it. You are right we dont deserve the country we live in, we deserve one better than the current one. Obama is going the way of Carter, a joke of president. As far murdering mobs go, Funny i havent seen anyone storming the embassies of arab nations and killing ambassadors over a movie.

  • rickbiehle

    obama politicized it by apologizing to the killers. you dont deserve the land you live in if you support this man who supports the extremists

  • loriaw07

    Have some more kool-ade Tony.

  • redheadgrl

    My question, Tony, is why were the American soldiers that are stationed at the Embassy not allowed to protect the American citizens inside? Especially from a riotous mob that is scaling walls? Mr. Obama in the Commander in Chief.

  • http://twitter.com/Reagan_Lady Liberty

    You don’t deserve the country you live in if you fail to see that we are under attack by Muslims & the president you probably helped elect hides & says “Oh, we respect you. Don’t hurt us.” Get a clue.

  • AimToMisbehave

    Take your moral equivalence and shove it right up your Biden.

  • Liars Never Win

    Americans are dead and his Las Vegas fundraiser is alive.

  • $8245944

    It’s all Obama’s fault. Obama lost Egypt and he will be held accountable.

  • AimToMisbehave

    There were none. Their only “security” was a locked front door. The so-called Libyan security forces sold out the Ambassador and his staff by telling the attackers where they were.
