Please excuse the ham-fisted formatting and any typo's; SophosArcheus wanted to record this as it happened. The ends of the threads will be recorded elsewhere (though Gov Romney's comments will be shrouded or shredded by most media).

LAST NOTE: Obama still sits on his hands and promises "harsh words" if Iran continues to build its bombs and missiles, actually following through on their constant threats to WIPE OUT Israel and "JEWS IN ANY COUNTRY". Obama says, "wait". To paraphrase the Israeli position, WAIT FOR WHAT, YOU IDIOT?!? Tehran has IGNORED the weak and cosmetic sanctions of Obama for almost FOUR YEARS OF WEAPONS DEVELOPMENT, and that following all the sanctions thrown at them by Bush and the U.N. for years before that. WAITING FOR WHAT; a glass-paved Israel and hundreds of millions of victims of a wild-eyed Jihadist terror-state?

UPDATE: As SophosArcheus predicted (see the preamble re: "Romney's comments shrouded or shredded"), both Obama (and his appointees and paid Propagandists) and the in-the-tank Obamedia spent more time in the 24 hours following the attacks impugning and smearing Romney than condemning the invaders and murderers in Libya and Egypt. What the Leftist rags do not report (and Socialist apologists on FOX try to paper over, is the conspiratorial attempt to trap Romney in a 'gotcha' word trap [i.e., "Do you still beat your wife"].
Listen closely to these several reporters, from different outlets (two are NBC affiliates). They are not ensuring that all the important questions get asked (e.g., "you ask about the gun, I'll ask about the car - anyone left ask about the money"), which is fairly common. NO, they are colluding to make sure that one question gets asked, over and over, and that it be asked with such pre-determined parsing as to inflict maximum implication of wrongdoing on Romney's part. They are trying to suggest to viewers' minds that there was wrongdoing, instead of honest comments after Obama failed his Presidential duty to issue any.
[Apologies - embedding is not working for this video. Watch it HERE. ]
Not a word from the Leftist press about Obama skipping MOST of his daily national security briefings [Obama is much too smart to need the actual experts in the room for questions; he just reads the outlines and knows all], including the briefings for this week. Nothing about his leaving the Middle East burning while he hops an A.F.-1 jaunt to 'Vegas for fund-raising and Romney-bashing.
[UPDATE]: Days later (and after Leftist propagandists declared that Obama the Great had made a phone call to the Mid-East leaders and >poof< the whole thing is fixed, feelings are balmed, the growing number of dead are assuaged...]; the anti-American rioting and attacks on U.S. and German [?!?] Embassies have spread across the Middle East and North Africa, and even to Asia and Australia, of all places.
