Lack of Resolve
Issue this disgraceful apology:
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. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. 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 othersIt's "abuse" of free speech because it hurts someone's feelings? These guys have no idea what the First Amendment means.
The left is beside itself for future President Romney's statement:
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. 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.
And they are calling on the Republicans not to politicize the foreign attack on our property and personnel there.
But isn't an attack on our Embassies and Consular offices by foreign nationals already a political act?
I mean it's not like it's some force of nature, like a storm or a flood; that would be beyond the pale to politicize.
