Right after the attack in Egypt and Libya, president Obama said: The United States rejects all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others --"
Therefore we expect a repeal of that part of Obamacare that offends the beliefs of the Catholic Church any day now.
How utterly absurd and untrue! Just another bit of fantasy creativity. Guess the Tea party is as much anti-Catholic as anti-Muslim.
"the whole country rallied around Serrano to defend his First Amendment rights" ?
Yet another bit of fantasy creativity involving historical revisionism. Actually:
Serrano became a figure whom Senator Jesse Helms, and Senator Alphonse D'Amato, as well as other cultural conservatives, attacked for producing offensive art.
So much for the whole country defending him. Just look at who was opposed.
Romney's statement came AFTER the attack. As a president's statement should. Unless the president knew the attack was eminent and was hoping to prevent it by appeasing the un-appeasable.
Romney was speaking as a presidential candidate and, as such made a good statement. He did not go off on a "what I would do when I'm President" rant. Nor did he make excuses.
The statement from the Embassy was a plea......"please don't attack us.... we spit on Americans who exercise their free speech rights."
Why would a U.S. Embassy make such a woosey statement if it didn't know something was going to happen??? Why was it not a stern warning and a demand for additional police and military protection...or else. Why did it contain bold lies? "we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions." "Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy.".....Catholic Church and Obamacare comes to mind...................
