Speaking at a raucous campaign rally in Las Vegas, President Obama vowed to seek justice for those responsible for killing diplomats in an attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya and issued a stern warning to enemies of the United States.
“We want to send a message to all around the world who would do us harm. No act of violence will shake the resolve of the United States of America,” Obama said to a cheering crowd estimated at 8,000 people. “I want to assure you we will bring their killers to justice.”
And with these words Barack Obama reminds the American people that the job of the President requires FAR more skill, courage, and competence than ever displayed by Mitt Romney.
During this entire campaign the Republicans have worked overtime to make it about one single issue, jobs. Romney surrogates have twisted themselves into veritable pretzels in the attempts to constantly move the subject back to jobs, regardless of what questions are thrown at them, and then pound home the myth that Romney is the ONLY one who can increase job growth in this country.
Personally I have NEVER bought into that argument, but it has worked to some degree simply through constant repetition and with the help of a sluggish recovery.
However with these attacks, and Mitt the Twit's incredibly incompetent response to them, the focus has now shifted away from the ONLY talking point that the Romney campaign had to work with and back to those Presidential job responsibilities that he is woefully ill equipped to handle.
Because like or or don't, when it comes to keeping our country safe and dealing with terrorists, President Obama has wrestled the wheel out of the hands of the incompetent administration that came before his, and is in complete, and competent control of protecting the American people.
In other words the death of Romney's presidential aspirations will forever be tied to the untimely death of our brave Ambassador to Libya.
