How Romney Screwed Up the Libya Question
Mitt Romney tried the catch the president of the United States in a lie last night by saying that "it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror." This comment ended up kicking Romney in the pants. In fact Obama had referred to the attack as "an act of terror" in a speech in the Rose Garden the day after four Americans were killed at the US consulate in Benghazi. Moderator Candy Crowley ended up fact-checking Romney in real-time and proved Romney's comment incorrect. Conservatives, angry over what was an obviously embarrassing exchange for Romney, have tried to argue that somehow this reference didn't count.
