Obama on Libya Attacks
These "attacks will not break the bonds of the U.S. and Libya." Libyan forces fought backfor us and carried ambassador to hospital. Hails our ambassador and others. "I have no doubt their legacy will live on." No terror attacks "will eclipse the values we stand for ....but justice WILL be done." No response to Romney, of course. Eloquent and dignified. No words from Hillary. No reference to Egypt at all, where government is silent.
UPDATE As for Romney's statements, even Mark Halperin hammers: "Unless the Romney campaign has gamed this crisis out in some manner completely invisible to the Gang of 500, his doubling down on criticism of the President for the statement coming out of Cairo is likely to be seen as one of the most craven and ill-advised tactical moves in this entire campaign."
