    I am so sorry for the death of Ambassador Stevens. Wolf Blitzer instead of concentrating in informing us about the Ambassador's life and great deeds, he waists his time questioning his show's guests about how awful Mitt Romney "rushed" comments about the situation in Libya was. Blitzer is so obviously anxious about not pinning any responsibility for these crazy actions in Egypt and Libya at Mr. Obama's feet, that he looks pathetic and silly in his reporting.
