    I offer my condolences to the families who lost their love ones. It is appalling that we (US) helped Libya to the road of freedom, and this is how we are appreciated. What is more appalling and inconceivable, is Mitt Romney actually JUMPED President Obama in speaking out about the tragedy. How could he and his campaign think that this would be acceptable. I know that many of the Republicans don't respect him and some dislike him. However, if you want respect then you must show it to others. Romney"s advisers never should have allowed him to hold a press conference before the President delivered his statement. I have been voting for 40 years, and I will use the media and other means to campaign for President Obama. Thanks Gov. Romney you just boosted the ratings for a man and President you disrespected. You are not in the White House yet !!!!!

    I think that freedom of speech is an amazing right that we as American citizens have, but I find it extremely despicable when someone abuses this right by intentionally provoking rage out of a group that has shown this kind of rage before. The fact that they have acted so ridiculously immature just because they can, and then, cowardly hiding behind their wonderful constitutional right, and then, even more cowardly hiding in their country's fantastic borders (keeping them save from the aftermath of their disgusting act), while fellow citizens including an ambassador is killed due to their stupidity is just plain spineless and detestable.

    And where were the Egyptian Police when this happens? And we plan to give Egypt and all those other Muslim countries billions of dollars in aid?!? Mr. Obama, it is one thing to give billions to "failing" american companies in hopes they will survive, but to people who hate us? Who would like nothing better than to see Americans slaughtered, our churches and synagogues destroyed and civilization returned to the "bronze age". A vote should be taken by the American people as to whether to continue to throw good money after bad!
