    Your back-handed endorsement of Romney, so he can be the dog wagged by the tail known as Bibi. Beyond this, the editorial is useless rhetoric.

    HA!! What can Obama say that will impress anyone? The man is a joke and no one takes him serious outside the US .... or inside the US for that matter. Appeasement and apology might sound good to all the liberal nut's in the world but to the bad guys who terrorize us - they are words to laugh out loud about and I'm certain Iran and China and others get a lot of belly laughs at this embarrassing little president from the US who spends most of his time on David Letterman and The View.

    Just watched the KSL News report on what Obama said. Once again, no leadership shown to the world. Too bad more folks can't see that a great orator isn't necessarily a good President, or even a less-than-desired President, but rather is a weak President who apologizes for our country and Israel at every opportunity. The world could use some good leadership from the USA and they've not seen it from the current administration. Hopefully that ends after the next November election.

    Obama and his Secretary of State are excellent communicators of America's principles and interests. They have moved effectively to withdraw our troops from Middle East conflicts. He has effectively attacked terrorism. He has effectively protected American interests throughout the world.

    The Middle East has smoldered and regularly boiled over throughout my lifetime (1949-present). It may have seemed like "the right thing to do" in 1949 to support the establishment of Israel at the expense of the Palistinian poplulace; but, there were many unintended consequences. These include the continual conflict between Israel and the Palistinians, the hate of Israel by Shiite Muslim countries and the distrust of israel by Suuni Muslims.

    America cannot reverse the establishment of the Israeli State nor ever solve these conflicts We must act judiciously, carefully and with restraint when dealing with these countries. We have friends, like Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

    But we have tough enemies, like Iran and Syria. It will take serious, continual statesmanship, like the Obama Administration has shown, to keep the Middle East from boiling over again.

    Does this "excellent communication" include lies? Obama lied about the attack in Libya. He kept insisting the attack was due to the video ... when he KNEW that to be a lie. The Libya prime minister today confirmed that the attack was a planned terrorist attack and had NOTHING to do with the video. The attack was planned in advance but Obama must lie to cover his sorry tracks as a leader and not understanding the danger on 9/11....leaving 4 Americans dead.

    @Patriot
    My friend, the Middle East is a web of conflicts and undertows that will ensnare any outside nation that gets involved over there. When it comes to decribing or analyzing what happens, it doesn't serve any constructive purpose to call any American leader a liar, because that just isn't true. Whatever happens is often unpredictable and initial information may be imprecise.

    Because Middle East events often are worst-case, it is better to acknowledge the complexity of that region and support whatever reactions are necessary to neutralize aggression toward us and protect Americans. When it comes to the Middle East, patriotism requires the best in us.

    re:middle class

    Apparently you haven't been watching the news for the past few days?? Did you miss the news that INDEED Obama DID know that this was a terror attack yet he sent his people out to the press to say it was nothing more than a spontaneous act based on a video. This was a bald faced LIE!! The prime minister of Libya confirmed that two days ago. Obama is attempting to preserve his phony foreign policy of appeasement and certainly doesn't want to let on that this entire effort has been a failure. The middle east is on FIRE....in case you hadn't noticed. Oops - I forgot. MSNBC doesn't do actual news.
