Romney Continues His Absurd Attacks on Obama as Suspects in Libya Killings Are Arrested: Romney looks increasingly clownish as he continues his attacks.
President Obama’s firm and deliberative response to the Libyan crisis that caused four American deaths on 9/11 appeared to be vindicated on Thursday, when Libyan officials announced that four men had been arrested following the U.S. embassy attack.
On Wednesday morning in Washington, Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made multiple public statements where they not only praised the murdered diplomats, but pledged not to walk away from the new Libyan government and bring those responsible to justice. Those stances, as well as an initial comment from U.S. Embassy officials in Egypt in response to protests there on Tuesday over an independent film that slandered Muslim religious figures, were severely criticized by Mitt Romney.
Romney’s attack on the White House on Wednesday caused well-known Republicans to distance themselves from their presidential candidate, saying the U.S. political system always puts aside partisan politics when facing terrorist attacks. However on Thursday, Romney expanded his controversial criticism of Obama’s foreign policy in a speech in Virginia, where he sought to portray Obama as weak on foreign policy.
