"KROFT: “Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word ‘terrorism’ in connection with the Libya attack.”
KROFT: “Do you believe that this was a terrorist attack?”
OBAMA: “Well, it’s too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.” "
Sept.12: Obama Labels Attack ‘Act of Terror,’ Not ‘Terrorism’
Sept. 12: Obama delivers a morning speech in the Rose Garden to address the deaths of U.S. diplomats in Libya. He said, “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.” He also makes reference to the anti-Muslim video when he says: “Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.” He uses the term “act of terror” later that night when talking about the attack at a campaign event in Las Vegas.
Sept. 12: After his Rose Garden speech, Obama tapes an interview for “60 Minutes.” Obama says he didn’t use the word “terrorism” in his Rose Garden speech because “it’s too early to know exactly how this came about.” Steve Kroft, the show’s host, wonders how the attack could be described as a “mob action” since the attackers were “very heavily armed.” Obama says “we’re still investigating,” but he suspects “folks involved in this . . . were looking to target Americans from the start.”

It appears Now.....we have it up in 6 threads or more.
So we have a quote from J-Mac, care to provide or your own or are you going to keep up this smokescreen?
Obama did say it was an act of terror---well after the fact and after there was plenty of misdirection and blame towards an internet video. Or do you care to put the timeline up of what statements were made when?
All I can say is if you are in any way directing that at any member of this site, thats some highly dergatory language you are using.
"Reich-winger" really is offensive, and I don't think anybody deserves to have such a term used against him or her. Just maybe, it might be okay to accept that others have differing views (obviously wrong, of course, LOL, if they disagree with yours) without resorting to a Godwin.
And I was so distracted--which is perhaps the purpose of derogatory terms such as "Reich-winger"--that I didn't mention that I think the claim that Obama hasn't given anybody anything to bitch about is just ludicrous.
