Republican Women across the nation support Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in condemning the attacks against American embassies in Egypt and in Libya and asks all Americans to keep the families and loved ones of those slain in their thoughts and prayers.

"Under the Obama administration, we have witnessed a foreign policy of indecision and weakness, as well as a decline in American

influence and respect. The administration did stand by the statement out of Egypt, which sounds akin to an apology.

"For media to criticize Governor Romney for immediately condemning the breach of the American embassies and senseless murders is ridiculous. Not only did the Obama administration wait to respond to the violent murders by Egyptian protesters, but it once again sent a mixed message of American leadership's failure to be decisive and resolute. Storming U.S. missions and committing murderous acts of violence is never acceptable, no matter the reason. Any response that does not immediately and decisively make that clear conveys weakness.

"Governor Romney was justified in taking an immediate stand in the face of these tragedies. It is never too soon to stand up for American values."

IN addition, I'd like to add, the state department gave a standing order our troops guarding the embassies in the mid east are not to utilize "live ammo" How do our Marines protect our American citizens around the embassies with rubber bullets?

More Romney big lie propaganda. Through pronouncements like this he doubles down on his blunder. He attacked the president on false grounds, was called for his stupidity and irresponsibility, and instead of acknowledging his error, he repeats it by having these women speak for him. How dumb does he think Americans are?

The media didn't criticize Romney for condemning security breaches and senseless murders, they criticized him for cynically exploiting a tragedy to score political points. Please contrast this with the respect and support shown by candidate Reagan after the debacle of President Carter's attempt to rescue the hostages in Iran.

like going to attack iraq when they had no WMD's was unacceptable. Flop in Afghanistan, shouldn't be there either. Training a security force who...hmmm. sound similar to the 80's, train Taliban to fight Russians, arm them and on it goes. Yeah, let's make this a partisan game. Mitt is a trainwreck. Obama no better.
