Romney deserves rebuke for Libya jab

Mitt RomneySarah PalinBarack Obama

I'm beginning to believe that Sarah Palin, who could see Russia from her doorstep, had more foreign policy savvy than Mitt Romney. With a chance to act presidential, Mr. Romney instead choose to attack President Obama ("Romney jab on response to video protests draws rebukes," Sept. 13).

It seems to me that the horrific act that killed an ambassador and three other Americans is not exactly the event on which to plant a partisan political flag. Such a tragedy should, for a brief moment at the very least, be an opportunity to rally Americans against those who attacked us, not to score political points.

It smacks of desperation and is a frankly scary commentary on the judgment and instincts of a person who thinks he should be president.

    The murder by Islamic terrorists of our Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens is a direct result of President Barack Obama's weak and left-wing foreign policy. The total lack of any strong U.S. leadership now is shown all over the Middle East.

  • With anti-Islam film, free speech put American lives at risk

    Regarding your editorial, "Libya Attacks: Romney has a point" (Sept. 13), there's no debate that freedom of speech is a core value that should be defended in the United States and supported around the world. The question in this case is the context.

    The commentary on how Ben Bradlee helped bring down Spiro Agnew is very interesting and accurate ("How Bradlee helped fell Agnew," Oct. 30). Ironically, though, it is also partially self-indicting by The Sun. During the whole Watergate story, The Sun did nothing but rewrite (as many...
