And as for the way Obama behaved, to quote his own words, “that’s not how a commander in chief operates.” That is why this specific issue is so emblematic of Obama’s foreign policy performance.

Romney continued:

This calls into question the president’s whole policy in the Middle East. Look what’s happening in Syria, in Egypt, now in Libya. Consider the distance between ourselves and Israel, where the president said that…he was going to put daylight between us and Israel. We have Iran four years closer to a nuclear bomb. Syria—Syria’s not just the tragedy of 30,000 civilians being killed by a military, but also a…strategically significant player for America. The president’s policies throughout the Middle East began with an apology tour and pursue a strategy of leading from behind, and this strategy is unraveling before our very eyes.

Quite true. The assassinations in Libya and how Obama handled them are one more example of that pattern. A region involving hundreds of millions of people and the main international source for American energy is going down the drain and Obama is, figuratively, heading off for Las Vegas.

  1. Ben Sweeney says:

    The President has now said that he knew it was terrorism right away… flew to Las Vegas and from that point it was a video….
    The infamous ridiculous video…. for our purposes the "Scapegoat Video" has been used to divert us from Obama's failures in foreign policy.
    It hurt his narrative… (Usama dead..GM alive etc…) but the political wing of the POTUS used the video… but at what cost… increasing the rage against Christian Coptics in the Middle East… we already are seeing the results of " fast and furious " (selling guns to mexico gangs)…..
    now we have "Fasting and Furious"….
    imagine how many Coptics have been killed do the promotional/diversionary activities of this administration.
