    John Kerry is calling for Romney to apologize for his Libya gaffe. When will we see Romney do the right thing and apologize for trying to politicize a tragedy and inflame dangerously unstable events in the middle east.

    He should absolutely NOT apologize, nor will he. In fact, I would suspect he will not only not apologize, but probably double-down.

    Why NOT? It called showing some respect. It shows Romney is a selfish loser all he cares about himself. Is that what republican is all about? Is that type of person you are?

    Shows respect for WHO? Romney does not agree with Obama's Foreign Policy and he has been, and will continue to be, quite vocal about it --- probably increasingly so in these final weeks before the election. He's running for Commander in Chief, NOT "Prom King".

    Romney should go play president somewhere else. Maybe at his country club he can play very important person and shoot his mouth off where nobody cares.

    Shows respect to the world, not only for Libya. That will makes him a better person. He doesn't has to agree with Obama's foreign policy.

    He's not apologizing to ANYONE, nor does he owe anyone an apology. He did absolutely NOTHING "disrespectful" to the world or Libya.

    Of course he should apologize. He criticized the US for a statement that was made before the attacks. He was wrong on the facts and politicizing a tragedy. Today he said if he were president he'd strengthen the military, but two weeks ago at the RNC he didn't even mention the military. It's so obvious that he's just scrabbling for votes. That's all he really cares about.

    I am not a fan of either Obama or Romney, but strategically I don't think Romney should apologize for his remarks (completely misguided and manifestly inept as they were) because he'd likely bungle that even more and magnify his ineptitude in handling the issue. What he should do going forward is to refrain from inserting himself into an already diplomatically volatile situation and let the diplomats in all affected countries do their jobs. Let's not make an already complicated and unpredictable situation any worse that it already is.

    Just the other day he was calling foreign policy a distraction, a "shiny object."

    AGREED.

    'Political Strategy' is Romney's only concern now.

    YES, HE SHOULD "not make an already complicated and unpredictable situation any worse"

    BUT THAT WISDOM IS NOT IN HIS CHARACTER.

    Romney should just quit now, in shame. He is a spineless flip flopper. Imagine a world where John Kerry looks like a real man and a republican looks like a pussy, this is that world and Mitt Romney is that pussy republican.

    Apart from apologize or not, this is a great way for the Dems to keep the story alive.

    Romney shouldn't apologize FOR anyone.
    He should apologize TO the American people - for getting the facts wrong.
    His statements on the Libya attacks have been and continue to be FALSE.

    Anyone running to be POTUS and commander-in-chief has a responsibility to get the facts straight and to be honest with the American people.
    Romney has utterly failed to do that.

    Romney also owes the American people an apology for breaking his own promise to refrain from partisan political attacks on 9-11.
    He broke that vow and dishonored the sanctity of the day with his vile and false partisan political attack on the president on what should've be a day of national unity and mourning.

    Romney's actions on the Libya attack have been despicable - and only brainwashed knee jerk Repub partisans like CJAZ weren't offended and disgusted.

    Should he apologize? Of course. He politicized the death of American diplomats for his own gain and he lied when he accused Obama of sympathizing with terrorists.

    Will he apologize? Of course not. Romney is lacking in character. I'm still waiting for him to release his tax returns.

    Doubling down when you are right and it benefits the country is a good thing. Doubling down after politicizing the deaths of American diplomats and after lying that the President sympathizes with terrorists, not a good thing.

    LOL
    What a great post/point.

    It is pretty incredible that the once-weak Kerry has become so strong - and has been brilliantly exposing Romney's softness and weakness on foreign policy matters.

    From Romney's failure to honor our troops in his acceptance speech at the RNC convention - to Kerry's great speech destroying Romney at the DNC convention - to Romney's unbelievably offensive and clueless handling of the Libya attack - it's become clear that Mittens is completely unprepared and unfit to be commander-in-chief.

    Yes he should.
    Nothing that was released for statement by the Embassy was dissing America, rather that America does not support bashing another religion. Romney overreacted and made a horribly stupid statement.

    Todd, Romney is already starting to back off Obama on the foreign policy issue because he knows that he will NOT win that battle. His only shot of winning on Nov is the economy.
