Obama Media Machine in Full Deflection Mode after Embassy Attacks

Barack Carter
 The Left Wing MEME of the Day is Romney's False Attack

The leftist propaganda machine is in overdrive trying to deflect any criticism about the dear leader Barack Obama. Buzzfeeed, Media Matters and Talking Points Memo all creating the 'false attack' meme. Yes, it was Mitt Romney who destabilized the mideast with the democracy project and the arab spring. Yes, false attacks on Romney without any actual link in the article on what the overwhelming proof is. Just innuendo and the 'everyone knows it is true' approach after they float the Big Lie echoed in the channels of the Leftist Lie machine.. That is what Talking Points Memo does, and that is Benjy Sarlin's specialty.  Now for the latest drivel from the LEFT. EXCLUSIVE: Open mic captures press coordinating questions for Romney “no matter who he calls on we’re covered”

Romney’s False Libya Attack Puts Him Way Ahead Of Mainstream GOP Romney’s False Libya Attack Puts Him Way Ahead Of Mainstream GOP 

Mitt Romney’s harsh and factually inaccurate condemnation of President Obama’s handling of a deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya puts him well in front of the rest of his party.
Chaos in Cairo Broad Daylight.

Romney’s aggressive attacks on Obama are a reversal from Romney’s usual approach, where he waits for the party to reach a consensus before stepping in. Nowhere was this more clear than during the military operation in Libya that overthrew Muammar Gaddafi’s regime, when Romney avoided taking a clear stand in any one direction.

Romney issued a statement late Tuesday condemning Obama’s handling of the attack after news broke that an unnamed foreign service officer had been killed — and even suggested that Obama had expressed support for militants.

“It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks,” he said.

In fact, Romney was wrong: A statement from the U.S. Embassy in Egypt (later disavowed by the White House) condemning an anti-Muslim film made in America was issued before the compound was breached.

Yes, not breached, just under siege by a planned protest on the anniversary of  911  (video) without the marines to guard the consulate. The early posting of this message should raise further suspicions, proving the embassy knew the dated and fake movie was going to be a  'reason' at a protest. Why was it even issued? So both Romney and Obama disavow the message. Interesting.

FYI Cairo is in EGYPT

Romney assails Obama anew over foreign attacks

Romney jumped to criticize Obama Tuesday night as the attacks were being waged on U.S. diplomatic missions in Egypt and Libya, saying the administration's early response seemed to sympathize with the attackers who were protesting an obscure film by a California filmmaker that ridiculed Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

Romney was responding to a statement issued by the embassy in Cairo that condemned "efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims." Romney said in his appearance Wednesday that the statement "was akin to an apology" for American values while its grounds were under attack

Romney read a brief statement mentioning Egypt in passing, using the statement from Cairo as evidence that Obama is a weak leader. He then invited questions from reporters, who asked if it was an appropriate tone to take given the deaths revealed later. Romney stood firm.
"The president takes responsibility not just for the words that come from his mouth, but also for the words that come from his ambassadors , from his administration, form his embassies, from his state department," Romney said. "They clearly sent mixed messages to the world. The statement that came from the administration—and the embassy is the administration—the statement that came from the administration was a statement which is akin to apology. And I think was a severe miscalculation."

Compare the times in the stories. Romney's comments are for Cairo, Clinton's  specifically mentions Libya.. 

 "The Obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks," Romney said in a statement first emailed to reporters at 10:09 p.m. Eastern time, under the condition it not be published until midnight."
"I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today," Clinton said in a written statement received by The Associated Press at 10:08 p.m. "As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss."
Then, at 10:24 p.m., a Romney spokeswoman lifted the release restriction on the Republican's statement, and it was widely published. FACT CHECK: Romney misstates facts on attacks 

The gunfire erupted around 10 p.m. Tuesday while 25-30 personnel were in the compound which consisted of several buildings and was guarded by a Libyan security force. Libyan Deputy Interior Minister of the Eastern Region Wanis al-Sharif told a news conference today that about 20 gun-wielding attackers fire automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades.
By 10:15 p.m., the attackers had stormed the grounds and begun firing on the main building. The U.S. official said that Stevens, 52; Sean Smith, a foreign service information management officer; and a regional security officer were in the main building, which by then had been set ablaze.

 “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,” he said in a 7:21 a.m. statement.   Obama condemns embassy attackers, critics of Islam in statement 09/12

Thanks for clearing that up for us again today Mr. President. Apologize first.
