Romney on Libya: Why doesn’t Obama want the American people to know what happened?

posted at 9:23 pm on September 25, 2012 by Allahpundit

He doesn’t use the phrase “cover up” — but Ryan does, in saying that it’s up to Americans to decide why The One is reluctant to use the word “terrorism” to describe what happened in Benghazi even though some of his underlings aren’t. And yes, this talking point is officially part of the Romney/Ryan message on the trail today. CNN asked the same question that Carl Cameron did and got a similar answer:

When pressed on whether he stood by the attack, Romney said, “I’m not sure which developments in the Middle East he would consider bumps in the road.”

He then suggested the Obama administration was trying to hide the truth behind what really happened in Benghazi.

“The White House’s failure to acknowledge that – that the assassination of our ambassador was a terrorist attack, a terrorist event – suggests that they are trying to paper over the seriousness of what’s happening in the Middle East,” Romney told CNN.

Cameron actually gives Mitt an opportunity to go for the throat at 3:15 by asking whether he thinks Obama’s “bumps in the road” comment is a case of him misunderstanding the Middle East or a knowing attempt to minimize what’s happened there this month to cover his own ass. Romney’s answer: It’s proof that Obama misunderstands. Not sure I’d have gone the same route but that fits, at least, with the thrust of Mitt’s message that O’s in over his head on all things presidential. More of this, please — while bearing in mind Ace’s point that the economy is still the silver bullet here.

Update: And here’s why the “cover up” claim is being pushed today:

Republican senators on Tuesday demanded answers from U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice on whether her public statements on the deadly consulate attack in Libya mirrored what she knew about the attack.

The senators, in a letter to Rice, specifically asked if she knew about a video and other intelligence that appeared to foretell the fatal attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, but still told the American public the attacks appeared to be a “spontaneous reaction” to an early attack in Egypt.

I’m so angry. I no longer believe he is a hapless, idiot, permanent-campaigner, but rather that he is complicit. Watching “2016″ made me see the events of the last two weeks, his speech, Hillary’s speech, all in a different light. He is actively trying to wreck our country. “The future shouldn’t belong to those who insult Islam”???? WTH??

I hope Romney is gearing up, ready to lay into him next week. It’s time.

Not sure I agree there — Mitt would look good in it, but he was never a fighter pilot as Bush was. He’d look like a wannabe.

However, Mitt definitely needs to replace the orange windbreaker with something else (hunter camo? red plaid? olive drab?). The only president I want to see in orange is the current incumbent, and I want to see his outfit accessorized with handcuffs and shoes with no laces.

hillsoftx on September 25, 2012 at 9:36 PM

If it’s an issue of O’s competency, this Libya matter is not going to hurt him. Lets say that O was negligent on Libya. The voter responds: so what? If it can be linked to O’s overall embrace of radical Islam and how that has guided his foreign policy, then it might help. But note that since Libya happened O’s numbers have risen… substantially. Maybe push things quickly into a full out full time assault on Obamacare. People don’t want their medical care messed up, and turned over to the govt. Push that now. It’s our way to win.

Both of you blew it. It’s well established that Obama Obama lied about whether this was a terrorist attack however people who are intending to vote for him still think he has some profound understanding of the world. He doesn’t. Mitt’s criticism is the more telling.

Basilsbest on September 25, 2012 at 9:53 PM

I’m sure Mitt and Paul are working on their narrative. Romney could be more aggressive with this attack. He might be by the time the town hall and foreign policy debates arrive. The emerging facts are shameful enough for Eye Candy. He’s hoping it just disappears from the headlines. Fat chance.

I knew he was an idiot before election–and a Marxist. But thought–wanted to believe–he was dangerous “just” as an idiot, and that there would be checks and balances to stop him. He has become bolder just recently–or else his plans have matured and are more obvious. He has global plans. We cannot survive four more years of him.

hoosiermama on September 25, 2012 at 10:00 PM

Barky and Hill’s story is that they did not have the facts. Why? They placed embassy staff in an unstable, Islamicized nation (sort of) that is a hotbed of al Qaeda recruitment. Why did they not know that when it has been reported since Qaddafi fell? Why did Stevens have no security? Who lured Stevens and the others into the trap?

So far, Mitt’s statement is sound, but he didn’t quite sound angry. He will.

Philly on September 25, 2012 at 10:02 PM

Understand your frustration, but I do think Romney believes as I do. Have a smile for everyone you meet, along with a plan to “kill” them. You don’t survive in business, much less excel in it, without an ability to go for the jugular. He’s showing his smile now, for the indies mainly, but I have no doubt at all we’ll see him in “kill mode” when the opportunity is present. He did it to Newt and Rick, and very effectively. Reagan, of course, is the gold standard in this ability, and Romney ain’t Reagan, but he knows what he’s doing here, despite what it might appear right now.

Slainte on September 25, 2012 at 10:24 PM

Nile, that’s true. I think Mitt will wait for more information to become public before calling Eye Candy a liar. He can call him out for being ignorant, unsympathetic, and incompetent because we have enough evidence of that.

How in the world can our ambassador be assassinated and we send a handful of FBI agents to investigate? More workplace violence, I presume. That is lame. No leadership. I don’t disparage FBI agents, but warships would have gotten the point across quickly and effectively. This was an act of war. And Eye Candy apologizes and praises the prophet of Islam. Unbelievable.

bazil9 on September 25, 2012 at 10:27 PM

I admit I don’t know how, exactly, but somebody, somehow, somewhere, has to drive home the point that Barack Obama is not nearly as smart as people think he is, and not in the same zip code with how smart he, himself, thinks he is.

Why the “bumps in the road” comment? Again, it’s about his hubris. His super-sized ego. To borrow the Wall Street Journal’s question from the primary, “Based on what?”

Barack Obama cannot admit a flaw. Cannot, humanly, admit that he’s not in control, at all times, of all things in his kingdom.

It’s a confounding arrogance based on no evidence whatsoever.

He don’t simply misunderstand the Middle East, Mitt. He misunderstands almost everything, including the Middle East. This is clever man. A slick man. He is not a genius.

The mistake we continue to make is to debate his statements and his actions as if they’re the actions of a person who has a clue what they’re doing. His words have weight, apparently, because they’re uttered in front of a Presidential seal. If you remove the seal, they fall flat on their a**, just as he does. I’ve said many times, he wouldn’t last 5 minutes on cross-examination. There’s simply no there there.

I suggest the hypothesis that Barack Obama is not that smart, period. Why it is that people who don’t buy a word he says continue to suggest he’s merely over-matched in the job, I’ll never understand. He is not over-matched in the job he’s doing, which is hanging on to the Presidency by any means necessary. Machiavelli was not Einstein, but he was much better suited than Einstein would have been for the tasks at hand.

I suggest that we underestimate Barack Obama’s mendacity and the danger he poses to this nation, while overestimating his intellect.

If the emperor hath no clothes, you don’t say the emperor has merely misplaced his pants.

Regardless of whether Sununu may have a point about Syria, people don’t want to hear what sounds like squawking neoconism. Get out of the foreign policy trap for this election. Go back to O’s extremism, and primarily Obamacare.

I get a feeling that the Libya thing isn’t resonating in our favor for some reason. It’s like we don’t have quite the right chord. Media attention is sacrosanct now. We need to try to set attention to the right issues. Like I said, Obamacare is the big one for us. And, frankly, the economy, and energy! Gas prices are going through the roof.

How refreshing it is to hear someone sound presidential for a change.

And someone else sound vice-presidential.

Losing to the incumbent, Mitt Romney reaches out to grab yet another handful of straw.

Romney cannot lay a glove on President Obama.

That picture is awesome…As to the icandy thingy; I mentioned last night that if by icandy you mean the stuff my sick dog squirted out, then yes.

The MSM is playing as Obama’s offensive and defensive line this time around.

They move memes that help him, block the one’s that don’t.

Team Mittens should be running a no-huddle Two Minute Drill all the time, – not wait for the debates to start launching Hail Mary’s.

Bruno Strozek on September 25, 2012 at 10:52 PM

Arrgh! You know what I mean!

Bruno Strozek on September 25, 2012 at 10:52 PM

I think Mitt needs to get right up in Barry’s face and ask him, “Do you not understand the responsibilities of the Presidency, or are you just lazy?”. It would make smoke come out of Obama’s (giant) ears.

BettyRuth on September 25, 2012 at 10:53 PM

Barky’s in a tough position. He supports his brothers in Islam and the glorious Arabian Spring but he can’t really say that until after he’s won the election.

CorporatePiggy on September 25, 2012 at 9:34 PM

Unlike most all Presidents, Obama never has choosen a local church to make his own. After the election, he will be free to choose a Mosque to make his own.

What the hell is this? Do they now grant the inmates at St. Elizabeth’s internet privileges?

VorDaj on September 25, 2012 at 11:06 PM

They do play well together.. Although Ryan is more charismatic than Romney.. much, much more charismatic.. and better at running for office but Romney does play well as the steady elder.

Illinidiva on September 25, 2012 at 10:12 PM

I personally like the smile on Ryan’s face when he looks at Romney. It’s the same one I see Ann give him a lot… one of pure respect and complete admiration, just from different perspectives. Ann the loving spouse. Ryan the fascinated, wow, this guy is good wingman.

al-Qaeda already laid a glove on him. Sucks to be you.

Christien on September 25, 2012 at 11:16 PM

Noot is on fire. Called Eye Candy a “false president.” Said he is ambitious and gets up every day and all he thinks about is himself. Not public policy. Not national security. Himself. It’s true.

Asks why Obama is fixated on appeasing Muslims while he attacks Christians in his own country.

Philly on September 25, 2012 at 10:09 PM

Romney’s Secretary of State.

Can’t wait for the debates.

Romney is aleady living rent free inside Obama’s head and he’s got him rattled…that’s why Obama is doin fluff media to be flattered…

obama is a cynic and knows he can get more votes going on the View than doing the work of the President as he should be and meeting with world leaders at the UN.

gracie on September 25, 2012 at 11:56 PM

I love his use of THEIR favorite word………… “troubling”.

Well played, not loud, not hair on fire……….calm and deliberate.

Contrast this with the homemade beer and Madonna offering to do the full naked for Obama on November 7th.

Republican senators on Tuesday demanded answers from U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice on whether her public statements on the deadly consulate attack in Libya mirrored what she knew about the attack.

The senators, in a letter to Rice, specifically asked if she knew about a video and other intelligence that appeared to foretell the fatal attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, but still told the American public the attacks appeared to be a “spontaneous reaction” to an early attack in Egypt.

…and when they are told to shut-up or ignored…the Republican senators become crickets!

KOOLAID2 on September 26, 2012 at 12:08 AM

Oh, and Mitt should get a leather bomber jacket like Bush had.

Night Owl on September 25, 2012 at 9:32 PM

…lardy no!…JugEars people would photo shop him with a helmet on and Dukakis him a tank!

KOOLAID2 on September 26, 2012 at 12:13 AM

Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi.

If the press were doing its job, that is all we would be hearing in the news now.

I hope they are forced to come to terms when examining the exit polling on election day…
