Just hours after the brutal murder of our Ambassador in Benghazzi Libya and the assault on our embassy in Cairo, Mitt Romney spoke for America when he expressed the outrage at the murderous acts. He said America should not apologize to anyone when an American gets murdered.
"I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi," Romney said in a statement late Tuesday night, "It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."
Romney had remarked on the politically correct statement that emanated from the Cairo Egypt embassy which is the official spokesman of the Obama Administration:
"The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions," the statement read. "Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."
Where was President Obama as rescuers frantically searched for our Ambassador in the smoking wreck of our Benghazzi embassy? Standing by on alert as commander in chief, ready to make crucial decisions? No, he was sleeping comfortably in bed, he had a big day of campaigning and fund raising ahead of him. President Obama did not a miss a planned campaign stop or fund raiser as our Mideast embassies came under siege.
The United States is still a free country and can practice freedom of speech, there’s nothing to apologize about.
You don’t see American streets filled with murderous mobs when a far left government sponsored “artist” puts a crucifix in a jar of urine and call it art. You never saw any American cities burn when another “artist” took a painting of Jesus Mother Mary and spread elephant dung on it…No the left celebrated those daring artworks and put them in museums.
But the rioting and violence afflicting many parts of the Mideast is just using this corny video as a pretext for violence, it is a smokescreen for the anger and resentment towards Western civilization and a way to further subvert American prestige in the area.
President Obama made his apology tour to the Islamic countries, promising a new way and respect for Muslim countries…..He was not their enemy. He seemed to think his mea culpa for Americas past transgressions, real or imagined, and just his presence was a magic solution. He seemed to think if he kicked our ally, Israel, to the back of the bus he would gain friendship in the Muslim world.
The naivete of this attitude is now being reflected as Iran races towards nuclear capability and America is faced with increasing scorn and violence, where the Obama policy wonks predicted there would be love, adoration and peace.....now that Bush was out of the way.
As events unfold in this dangerous part of the world, it is plain the Obama administration is in way over its head. Hillary, looks exhausted and at her wits end as she expresses surprise at the violence. Mitt Romney has been a vociferous supporter of our ally Israel as the weak foreign policy of the Obama administration endangers Israels existence.
There should have been no surprise from Obama or Hillary Clinton at this turn of events. It has been reported there was intelligence given to the White house 48 hours in advance, attacks were coming....It was the anniversary of 911 after all.
But what is plain to see in this part of the world that after almost 4 years of hope and change to our foreign policy: Our friends no longer trust us and our enemies no longer fear us.
