In an interview with 60 Minutes to air this Sunday, President Obama suggested that Mitt Romney acted too quickly in responding to the U.S. embassy in Cairo’s statement condemning an anti-Islam video, reports Politico.
“There’s a broader lesson to be learned here. Gov. Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later,” Obama told CBS News’s Steve Kroft in an interview that was actually scheduled before the four Americans were killed Tuesday at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
“As president, one of the things I’ve learned is you can’t do that,” Obama added. “It’s important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you’ve thought through the ramifications before you make them.”
Asked if Romney’s remarks were irresponsible, Obama responded: “I’ll let the American people judge that.”
