President Obama, at a Las Vegas campaign rally September 12, 2012, as quoted by Jim Geraghty at his Campaign Spot blog:
“Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much… It is so good to see all of you. I love you back. I do. I want to begin tonight—(chant of ‘Four more years!’) Thank you. So… I-I wanted to begin tonight by saying a few words about the tough day we’ve had today.” (cheers) “Don’t be, uh… We lost four Americans last night who were killed when they were attacked in a diplomatic post in Libya.”
Earlier in the day, at the White House, Obama said, “We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.”
Read the whole thing. As Jim writes, “One year later, we’re still waiting for justice.”
Meanwhile, Twitchy spots John Ekdahl, Jr. of the Ace of Spades blog reminding the Twittersphere of Obama and his surrogates at MSNBC and CNN dumping on Mitt Romney back then, for his observation that Russia is America’s main geopolitical foe — which is looking remarkably prescient this week.
