    ""I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens."

    "Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America's commitment to freedom, justice and partnership with nations and people around the globe and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives."

    "While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants."

    do you see any irony that you are using this tragedy to politically attack obajma by asking if he is going to politicize it?

    A few questions:

    1. Will Obama lead or campaign?

    2. Obama wants to re-build America from the ground up.

    What does that statement mean? Is he unhappy of how the founding fathers set things up?

    ....he condemns the attacks but his state department first issues an apology to the terrorists who did the killing. Typical Obama. By the way, the protesters eaming about how they are all Osama's followers and they were saying it to Obama. In other words , Obama is out there spiking the football about killing Osama (which he didn't the Seals did) and the protesters are citing his name as they burn the flag. So perhaps Obama ought to be apologizing for himself and his arrogant spiking the football in the militant crazies faces and in-sighting violence.
