MITT ROMNEY: “I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.” To be fair, they’ve backpedaled since. . . .
UPDATE: Byron York: Romney: Obama administration response to embassy attacks ‘disgraceful.’ “Direct attack by mobs on an American embassy, involving death, the destruction of a U.S. flag and the invoking of al Qaeda — on September 11, of all days — will certainly stir outrage among many Americans. And the Obama administration’s weak, apologizing response will likely prompt a strong Republican response in days to come.”
