Friday September 21, 2012 Happening Now

The stumbles of the White House on the attack on our diplomats in Libya getting a lot of attention today. You'll remember the administration insisted for days that the attack was a spontaneous uprising in reaction to a YouTube video. More and more evidence coming to light suggesting it was a coordinated pre-planned attack. The Obama administration said during "Happening Now" yesterday that it was obviously a terror incident.

Both campaigns have been curiously quiet about the story.. with President Obama declining to discuss it in depth and the Romney campaign not talking much about it. Some analysts say the Romney campaign may be a little gun shy about talking too much about it after the criticism they received in the initial hours of the attack.

President Obama was pressed hard in a campaign q&a at an Univision forum.. and the President got questions about his biggest failures.

Meantime, Governor Romney making much hay about comments from President Obama made that "Washington can't be changed from the inside." The Obama campaign says Mister Romney has made similar comments in the past, but the story is getting some attention.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting the Obama campaign outspent the Romney campaign in August.
