CNN Fact Check: Obama went on an apology tour, Romney and others say

(CNN) - The contention that President Obama apologized to other nations for American behavior has been mentioned repeatedly by his critics, including Mitt Romney.

During his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in August, Romney said, "I will begin my presidency with the jobs tour. President Obama began his with an apology tour. America, he said, had dictated to other nations. No, Mr. President America has freed other nations from dictators."

    RESPECT!! When in another country you RESPECT their rules! IF, and I say if the President bowed to another countries leader, so what! HE is STILL the most powerful person on this world! What if, the president visited another country and they did not show the american flag, had no reception, bands, etc.? Wouldn't that be a slap in our face?
    RESPECT is what is shown. You do not make friends or try to get their cooperation by insulting them and acting superior. YES, there are some exceptions to this, but again, RESPECT & understanding will get alot done!

    They are Republicans, lying and twisting facts is their means and way.
    Science is from the hell hole of satan.
    Yeah, these fools, including their flipper bishop Romney, will lead the country off the cliff, watergate, Iran contra, and the 2008 financial collapse.

    They hate science and government-oversight because they are crooks a heart.

    The President went on a tour and showed the world that America had no intention of taking over their countries or burying theri cultures under Amercan consumerism. That took away the power of corrupt tyrants to rally their people against the American enemy and allowed people with brains in those countries to want to choose democracy and fight for it. THis is a great plan compared to the neoconservative approach of shock and awe, let poor AMericans shoulder the burden of fighting and dying in the field trying to give the gift of democracy to people who have not fought for it and spending trillions on wars that produce nothing.
