    1.  "Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths."  That's not apologizing, that's bragging.  Obama is proud of our tradition of religious tolerance.  It's part of what makes this country great.  Why does Mitt Romey think we need to apologize for that, or not talk about it?

    2.  Romney is the one who never called this a terrorist attack until two weeks later.  Even if one thinks Obama's 9/12 statement was more general, not specifically about Benchazi, his 9/13 statement about an "act of terror" more clearly was directly about Benghazi.  then by 9/19 and 9/20, the administration clearly had stated that the latest intelligence indicated it was in fact a terrorist attack.  See my diary just posted.  Romney was the one late to this conclusion.

    3.  Why can't a terrorist attack be spontaneous?  And why can't an organized and planned attack be a response to the video?  The distictions Romney and his supporters are drawing here are irrational and illogical, and are in disreagrd of the known facts.  The best intelligence at the moment indicates there was some planning here, but also that the attack was a response to that video.
