Apologist-in-chief more concerned with Romney's remarks than defending American values

On Wednesday, Mitt Romney spoke and said exactly what a president should say whenever there is loss of life as a result of attacks by radical Islamists against American interests abroad:

"It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

Those comments were made by Republican presidential nominee Romney in response to a statement released by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo in which an apology was made to the rioters in Egypt and Libya who were upset over an American-made video they believed insulted their Great Prophet Muhammad. Instead of standing up for American interests first and protecting our freedom of expression, the apologist-in-chief once again bowed to the prissy sensitivities of Muslims.

In the eyes of many Republicans, and Democrats as well, any time you savagely kill innocent Americans, let alone an ambassador, destroy and burn the American flag—it calls for a quick, measured and strong response to let the world know that our American values will not be compromised. Just as Muslims seem to be hypersensitive to any mention of their Great Prophet Muhammad, so should Americans and their president when our flag is burned in public view.

As of today, former ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens is dead along with three other Americans as well as countless others that were injured as a result of the Libyan looting and burning of the U.S. Consulate in the city of Benghazi.

While the Middle East was burning, Obama and his media cronies seemed more concerned about Romney's reaction and his gall to question the president that they apparently went as far as trying to concoct phony questions during a press conference in an attempt to corner him with "gotcha questions."

But it wasn't too long ago when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made the following remarks in 2003 in reference to being able to question George Bush as the war in Iraq was in full swing:

"I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration."

So for Obama and the lamestream media to try and question Romney's remarks and values over this savage attack and the apologies that followed to Muslims is hypocritical.

Furthermore, I still have not heard anyone in the Muslim community stand up and issue any apologies to the families of these innocent victims, nor do I expect to. Nor do I expect the Obama media to put any pressure on the Libyan or Egyptian governments to issue apologies. This is where the focus should be by the media. The focus should be on not only defunding these savages but on reacting with force if necessary to discourage this type of terrorism. Instead, all we get from the president are flimsy retorts like "Romney has a tendency to shoot first and aim later." What the president forgets is that this is the same logic that he used when he basically allowed the people in Egypt to throw Mubarak out of office, not knowing that the radical Muslim Brotherhood would be waiting in the wings to take over.

Every other day, millions of Catholic and Christian Americans are subjected to religious discrimination and ridicule from some of the same Hollywood types who made the film so many Muslims are upset about. Yet you never hear of any savage group burning down or ransacking the homes of these movie producers and Hollywood types that practice their freedom of expression through these hate-filled movies. I have never once heard our president stand up to the likes of Bill Maher, Larry David or any of these left-wing Hollywood types who constantly rip on Catholics. Yet, every time someone makes reference to the almighty Prophet and Muslims get hell-bent out of shape, our Apologist-in-Chief is there to sooth the pain.

Should we be surprised?
