Obama Is Scared To Take A Foreign Policy Stance In An Election Year


But one thing he left his goons in the media to do was attack Romney to take focus away from the fact that he totally botched the lead up and response to the death of Americans abroad.

 Erick Erickson of Red State published an article today which all of you should read…
The American Media Beclowned Themselves Yesterday
Yesterday, we learned that there were no Marines protecting our Ambassador to Libya despite State Department warnings about violence and kidnappings in the Benghazi. We already knew Al Qaeda was coming on strong there. But we relied on locals for support and now we know the locals betrayed us as they have in the past in Afghanistan and Iraq too.
But the media wanted to focus on Mitt Romney.
Night before last, the President condemned Mitt Romney in harsher tones than he condemned the rioters. It took him until sun up yesterday to condemn them.
But the media wanted to focus on Mitt Romney.
Yesterday, the media spent much time condemning the Coptic Christians for their movie, but we now know the movie had been out for months and we also know the riots were orchestrated in advance. We also know the attack on the American consulate in Libya used the riots as cover for the attack.
But the media wanted to focus on Mitt Romney.
Yesterday, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a man who swore an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America, called an American civilian to ask him to stop exercising his first amendment rights.
But the media wanted to focus on Mitt Romney.
We also now know that the President, close to 60% of the time, has opted for printed intelligence briefings, which this White House thinks are as useful as an intelligence officer in the room who the President can probe, prod, challenge, and question.
But the media wanted to focus on Mitt Romney.
