While President Obama faced criticism for campaigning in Las Vegas the day after four Americans were killed in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, he did acknowledge the crisis early in his remarks, referring to “the tough day we had today” amid cheers from supporters.
@markknoller The only people who had a tough day today are the dead ones.

“Tea Party guy” Chuck Woolery was looking for a little more passion from POTUS.
In Vegas, Pres very cool.We had a tough day. He can't muster up any anger. We we can. My blood is boiling about this. No passion from POTUS.
