Mitt’s Mouth has lost my vote for him. No matter the accuracy of his remarks, it was poor form for him to respond to a developing crisis in the Middle East that occurred on the anniversary of the infamous attack on our soil in NYC with an ad hominem attack on the President. He did not show good judgment in jumping in before the dust settled with recriminations.
To his credit, the President did not have a knee-jemrk reaction to events as they unfolded. In truth the vast majority of Libyans are grateful to Americans for giving them freedom. A small band of terrorists were responsible for killing our people there.
The Romney tone was decidedly retributive. We don’t need any more Presidents who want to even the score over there. We need to work cooperatively with governments there to try to end the violence. Vice-Presidential candidate Ryan said the violence was symptomatic of Obama’s poor leadership. A less intelligent response to a situation like this I have never heard.
The President took things at a studied pace and this time his slow to react strategy worked. He is working co-cooperatively with the Libyan government.
Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. – Albert Einstein
