BREAKING: Romney renews criticism of Obama's Libya response

(CNN) – Mitt Romney blasted the Obama administration on Wednesday for a statement he said was made by the U.S. Embassy in Egypt after its security was breached, calling it "akin to an apology" that was "disgraceful" and adding that the president assumes responsibility for all communications from U.S. diplomats.

Romney, during a press conference in Florida, called the killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy personnel "outrageous" and "disgusting," and said "America will not tolerate attacks against our citizens and against our embassies."

The Republican presidential nominee first released a statement Tuesday night.

    I keep thinking about that 3:00am call at the White House.
    I don't want it to be Mr. Romney who answers.

    Trust me. Mitt Romney wouldn't answer it. Someone else would answer a 3am phone call for him. Pres. Romney's job would be to do exactly what Gronver Norquist described: be someone who can sign their signature on a piece of legislation.

    I was hoping that the murders in Lybia would not turn into a political slamming session. However, Mr. Romney wasted no time in fault-finding. I can see the future with Mr. Romney as president. The one who finds fault in everything, but himself.

    this act from Gov. Romney reeks of the Bush administration in the fact that he was quick to make a rash decision without the appropriate amount of facts.....now WHY would i want to vote for RECKLESSNESS like this?
