Romney, Obama surrogates continue to spar over Libya

The Obama and Romney campaigns continued to spar over the government’s response to violence in Libya on Sunday, with Republicans charging that the Obama administration deliberately misled the public and the president’s reelection team accusing Mitt Romney of politicizing an attack that killed four Americans.

“Folks want to know two things: Why wasn’t the security there? And why did the administration try so hard to create the wrong image as to what happened?” Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, Romney’s debate practice partner, said on ABC’s “This Week.” “You know, they went out of their way to try to leave the impression this was because of some video. It wasn’t. It was a premeditated terrorist attack that terrible night in Benghazi.”
