President Barack Obama needs to stay in Washington, D.C., suspend campaigning, and address the threats against Americans in the Middle East.
Chris reviews the response the Libya consulate attacks by the President and Mitt Romney. He talks to Sal Risalvato of the New Jersey Gasoline, Convenience and Automotive Association about a protest against Lukoil North America’s pricing policies and to State Representative Daryl Metcalfe about today’s State Supreme Court hearing on the Voter ID law.
As unfortunate as the events are, Romney’s comments about Obama ring true. Prior to the tragic event and even after, President Obama appears to excuse and apologize for the horrendous events that take place in the world – including those against Americans.
There are moments like the tragedy that unfolded in Egypt and Libya that test candidates. The element of surprise often illuminates a candidate’s ability to inspire and to lead.
