What else is new? This is a common pattern in the Obama administration, they all pick and choose just which laws they are going to abide by. Nothin' new here.

So typical of the Obama administration

FAILED FOREIGN POLICY=Obama

FAILURE TO PROTECT AMERICAN EMBASSY=Obama/Hillary

9/11 anniversary NO BEEF UP at embassies in ARAB countries!

The attackers were NOT YELLING film maker, film maker; they were yelling: "OBAMA, OBAMA"

ARAB SPRINGSUMMERFALLWINTERSPRINGSU MMER=FAILURE

UNstable arab spring governments aren't in control

they CAN NOT deal with uprisings!

FAILURE of the American apology tour = OBAMA

America would have to erase our rights of FREE SPEECH to stop EVERYONE from giving their opinions on ARAB RELIGION

IT'S AN IMPOSSIBILITY to CENSOR every one of the 312 MILLION people in America! It's an impossibility and the FAILED OBAMA policy of apology will and has backfired.

They acknowledged their wrong doing, quickly, and rectified the situation.

The republicans are so desperate to find ANYTHING to hang on Obama, since Romney's campaign is begining to tank that you people cling to every syllable just to make - what, a point? That you guys are desperate?

Point noted.

Condemn, investigate, apologize if necessary. Not the other way around, screwball. Romney is right.

Romney deserves credit for emphasizing today that the events in Cairo and Benghazi remind us of the need for American leadership. He refused to cater to what must be a widespread (and understandable, if short-sighted)‘let's just get out of that crazy part of the world’ sentiment among the public. He spoke in the tradition of conservative internationalism.

Obama/Hillary=NO LIVE AMMUNITION IN EGYPT EMBASSY!

again making american soldiers vulnerable because they-Hillary and Obama-don't want to OFFEND the arabs

genuflect, bow down, let our sons and daughters vulnerable on volatile, UNSTABLE arab countries.

NO to the OBAMA PHILOSOPHY, POLICIES that strip weapons and ALSO made soldiers IN Afghanistan MORE VULNERABLE to being ATTACKED by Afghanis.

OBAMA=US soldiers more vulnerable due to SILLY restrictions on weapons!

OUTRAGE in AMERICA. Obama NEVER SERVED in the military!

Romney has retaken the lead over the procrastinating President. Or maybe we are just glad to finally see a leader runing for President. Who do you want protecting your back Romney, or the apologist President? It took him 16 hours to decide to make a statement about the dead Ambassador.

What was good enough for George Bush is good enough for Barack Obama

Can't Obama STand up under the attacks? Bush sure did. Obama continues to exhibit weakness and an inability, when not protected by the media, to show his fallibility in running this country EFFECTIVELY.

FAILURE-ECONOMICALLY
FAILURE-TO NOT depend on FOREIGN ENERGY-how's those gas prices
FAILURE-FOREIGN POLICY

Obama=can't keep his thoughts together under durress and partying in Vegas with Beyonce and JayZ

You really are an Obama Freak if you think holding someone accountable for breaking the law is an act of "desperation". No wonder your Obama freaks make decent American around the Nation sick.

Show me where Obama apologied
Just once, do that simple thing - prove this is true.

This is what the embasy in Libya put out during the protests;

"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 others."

Was this Obama and where is there an apology? This is a condemnation not just to those making hurtful remarks towards Muslims, but all religious afiliations.

Why do you take this out of cotext?

Romney was an imbecile - he did not have all the facts surrounding what happened there. Why not wait to see what in fact is going on before shooting ones mouth off?

I totally agree with you that this Election is an easy choice for Americans. Either Americans have given up any hope for a bright future for their kids and their Nation or they will Vote for Romney Ryan. Duh.

another Obama mistake = FOREIGN POLICY

and

it's the 9/11 anniversary and NO BEEFED-UP protection for these UNstable arab countries.

The presidents too busy fundraising and golfing instead of protecting our embassies in these volatile countries.

In Egypt Americans are unable to have live ammunition!

Our soldiers at-risk with rules and regulations that takes away their protection.

THE RESTRICTIONS EVEN EXTENDED TO AFGHANISTAN WITH THE RIDICULOUS RULES!

IT TOOK MANY AMERICAN LIVES BEFORE OBAMA RELENTED...the increasing number of soldiers' death would be a detriment to his re-election.

LET'S JUST END HIS PRESIDENCY ON NOV. 6th!

Feds agree to spend $40 billion per month on propping up the Stock Market in order to make Obama look better until the Election. After the election the Market may tumble to 9,000 but if Obama is re-elected every one will have given up on America so it won't matter any more.

Nothing new here. I worked for the state of Ohio 30 years ago and was required to buy a certain number of fundraiser tickets every year! They all do this! After being refused a promotion because I am a white male I refused to buy any more tickets and told them I would go straight to the press if I was hassled in any way. Fortunately I re entered the real world and left government behind!
