Graham responded quickly after the president’s news conference, saying he did, in fact, hold Obama responsible for the Benghazi attack.

Obama hopes to meet with Romney before year’s out
President Barack Obama says he hasn’t yet scheduled a meeting with Republican Mitt Romney.
At a news conference Wednesday, Obama said he hopes to have the chance to talk with Romney before the end of the year.
Obama said the election was only a week ago, and that everybody needs to catch their breath.
He said he thinks Romney did a terrific job with the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. Obama said he’s not pre-judging how the former Massachusetts governor may be interested in helping the country, nor does he have a specific assignment — but Obama said he does want to talk about some of Romney’s ideas.
Obama broke no new ground on some of the key foreign policy issues facing him in his second term. He reiterated his long-standing position that there is still time for the U.S. and its allies to find a diplomatic solution to its nuclear standoff with Iran. And of the ongoing civil war in Syria, he said the U.S. considers opposition groups as representative of the Syrian people but is not prepared to recognize them as a government in exile, as France has done.
