President Barack Obama spoke to Spanish-language television network Telemundo answering questions on the attacks on U.S. embassies in Egypt and Libya. José Diaz-Balart, host of Noticiero Telemundo asked him if he politicized his statements on 60 minutes in response to Mitt Romney’s statements against him.
“I think my statements have been very clear,” Mr. Obama said. “I was asked directly by Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes what I thought of these comments. And what I said was this wasn’t the time for politics. I have observed that there’s a tendency to shoot before you aim, as I pointed out.”
