Have you read the text of Obama's speech to the UN or are you just regurgitating what you hear/read from others?

This whole Libya issue is naked political gamesmanship--started by Romney. First, the embassy in Cairo was attacked purportedly in response to the video. There were protests in other countries and the attack on the Libyan consulate (not embassy). Obama spoke broadly about these attacks. Time and again Obama and others (Ambassador Rice, for instance) cautioned there was uncertainty and an investigation about what transpired.

So if Republicans want to say Obama was speaking broadly, not specifically, in the Rose Garden when he talked about "acts of terror" they should then apply the same measuring stick to other comments.

Repuvlicans, ever on the hunt for a conspiracy when there is a Democratic president.

As a military person, when a person hedges as the President did and Hillary Clinton even admitting there was a problem. I could not trust this person, either one in protecting and providing protection for anyone. The recording and transcript of that didn't say that Libya was a terrorist attack. He is very selective in his words and didn't want to discuss that. Crowley did a lot of the talking for him and hedged herself. She is a liberal CNN communicator.

I am glad people in Colorado enjoy the Deseret News and the articles that are written. We enlighten or attempt to enlighten others that live in the high mountains and may suffer the affects of hypoxia and other problems. The President had such a great debate there in the open air and with his performance record of the past 4 years.

We are so fortunate to have him lead us down the path for 4 years and the media that strings him along as Miss Crowley did last night.

Like everything else President Obama does the second debate is a case of too little too late. The fatal damage was done during the first presidential debate when President Obama failed to take his opponent seriously.
