So what makes you think an intelligent blogger has more answers than the State Department?<quoted text>
Criticizing Administration Policy Is Legitimate and Absolutely Necessary, Lying About It Isnt
The main problem with Romneys intervention Tuesday night and yesterday morning was that his entire criticism of the administrations response to the attacks was thoroughly dishonest. This wasnt a matter of having a different, more skeptical interpretation of something that happened. This was a case of accusing the administration of something (i.e., sympathizing with embassy attackers) that it plainly had not done and wasnt about to do. It would have been perfectly legitimate and even useful for Romney to ask what the administration intended to do next, question what the security arrangements in Benghazi had been, and insist on accountability for any mistakes. Instead of offering anything remotely resembling constructive criticism, Romney immediately launched a false attack intended to link his opponent with people responsible for assaulting U.S. diplomatic missions.
Criticism of administration policy by a presidential challenger and his party is both legitimate and necessary. Its a shame that Romney chose to abuse that responsibility. He has not only further discredited himself, but he has also made it that much harder to hold the administration accountable for any real mistakes or failures they might have made.
So is there any 'slander' in that post?
I agree with Steve who posted a comment about the article below it.
"I think the Media has shown its in the tank for Obama. The questions are being fired at the wrong individual. Romney isnt president yet. So why dont we focus our questions and energy on why this event happened the way it did? Evidence is coming out that these attacked were planned, known about by both American intel and Egypt government. The Tweet came from the Embassy. Perhaps Romney ran with it He is an earlier rise like all good businessman. Our President skipped his Intel meeting before and after these events. You people need to start ask Obama some real questions for once."
Obama dropped the ball. Plain and simple. Instead of addressing the issue and answering many still unanswered questions and the Media not focusing on getting those answers, Obama has been out campaigning and saying it's under investigation. He and his cheerleaders are hoping it will just go away.
It's not going away. No matter what Romney says or doesn't say.
