POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 26, 2012 Page 7 Editorial (Continued from was a planned attack on the United States of America. Four Americans are dead and all we get is President Obama tongue-lashing his Republican opponent. The President's anger needs to be vented at the enemy not at a political opponent at the November 6 th election. Mitt Romney may have gotten his timeline mixed up, but not the message 4elivered to radicals before the storming of the embassy in Egypt or the killings in Libya. The message was clear, we were apologizing for a movie trailer that hurt the feelings of Muslims and attacking freedom of speech for Americans. We need not empower those who hate us through our perceived weakness. America needs to stand tall. Back in 1979, we had a weak president and saw both an ambassador murdered and hostages taken. Today through the same kind of weak leadership, we see the beginnings of history repeat- ing itself. I applaud Mitt Romney for speaking out. He was out- raged and it showed. Mean- while our president mumbles along. The Obama White House needs to stop making excuses for those who com- mit violence. So does Secre- tary of State Hillary Clinton. There is no excuse for kill- ings and violent protests. To excuse is to invite violence. We excuse and they retali= ate. Why are we shocked? While the liberal news media attacks Romney for misspeaking, none question why the president decided to go ahead with the taping of his upcoming appearance on Page 3) CBS-TV's "60 Minutes." Is this president ever not in campaign mode? Also, Chris Matthews on MSNBC was in his silly state of mind, ridi- culing Romney for standing up and speaking out against weakness in the face of vio- lence seemed stupid. Rom- ney may have erred in his timeline, but the apology to Muslim radicals is an actual fact not GOP make- believe. Jim Braude and Mike Barnicle reportedly were just as bad, blaming everything on that California film-maker and his anti- Muslim movie trailer on YouTube. How about blaming the violence on those who are violent? Why do liberal media outlets continue not to see what the rest of the country is seeing? The threats we face today around the world are far greater than those per- ceived back in the fifties and sixties when we saw the So- viets as a threat to world peace. I am much more afraid today because today's enemy is a far more danger- ous one and centuries apart. As dangerous as the Krem- lin was once perceived, at least America shared more with them than what divided us from them. We can't say that anymore, can we? Chris Matthews maybe slap-happy with Mitt Romney's goof but he should be more worried about the inaction of the Obama White House in the face of this on- going struggle with radical Islamists. It was this lazy attitude that led to what hap- pened on September 11, 2012. We bury our dead. Do we now bury our heads again? DIVORCE * CRIMINAL LAW OFFICES OF FRANK J. CIANO 230 MSGR.
