Congressman John Yarmuth, D-Ky., is slamming Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for his hasty comments during the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.
The raid of the consulate was allegedly sparked by an American video mocking Islam's founding prophet and resulted in the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others.
In a campaign statement released before the killing, Romney accused the Obama administration of sympathizing with protestors who attacked the consulate. The GOP nominee's remarks were referring to a statement from the U.S. embassy in Egypt, which condemned the anti-Islam video.
LOUISVILLE – Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) joined Jeffersontown Mayor Bill Dieruf, local officials, and business owners today to announce new federal investments that will fund infrastructure improvements and upgrades at the Bluegrass Commerce Park, enhancing its economic competitiveness in the region.
The funding – awarded through the Federal Highway Administration’s Transportation, Community, and System Preservation Program – totals $477,750. It will be used to resurface and rehabilitate roadways in the Park, increase safety at key intersections, and add a signature entrance to the Park. The improvements were identified in a master plan for the Park that was completed several years ago.
Former President Bill Clinton stars in the Obama campaign's latest TV ad, telling viewers that President Barack Obama is the man who can continue policies of building a "strong middle class."
The ad focuses on the economy, with Clinton recalling the prosperity during his presidency and saying Obama's policies are needed to rebuild America.
"This election, to me, is about which candidate is more likely to return us to full employment. This is a clear choice," says Clinton in the ad. "The Republican plan is to cut more taxes on upper-income people and go back to deregulation. That's what got us in trouble in the first place."
"President Obama has a plan to rebuild America from the ground-up -- investing in innovation, education and job training. It only works if there is a strong middle class," Clinton adds. "That's what happened when I was president. We need to keep going with his plan." -Video After The Jump-
