TonyT,
The problem isn't one that can be rectified with just an apology. The damage done isn't going to be repaired by offering an oops and $2500.

The audience heard her comments as a cabinet level government representative and as such they carry a great deal of power. That kind of blatant disregard for her position undermines Obama's effectiveness.

It points to a continuing lack of leadership on his part.

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?
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 embassy said in a statement in reaction to the attack.

Going by what you losers cliamed during the Bush administration, that Bush was responsible for his appointee's statements, so is nobama. Go see your proctologist, have your head removed, boy.

You think Americans are far more ignorant, more pitiful, and more ungrateful than most of us believe. If you are right and America is willing to settle for more from Obama then we aren't worthy of America.
