    From Hillary Asked For More Security In Benghazi, Obama Said No

    [​IMG]
    Reports suggest that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama didn't see things the same on Benghazi. She wanted more security for diplomatic personnel, but Obama said no.

    Rush Limbaugh predicted as much when Clinton took the blame for not upping the security forces in Benghazi and Obama threw her under the bus by telling the world the responsibility rested with him.

    Limbaugh has consistently maintained that Clinton had a way out, and that she had created some wiggle room for herself so that things could not be laid at her feet.

    And here it is: reports that Clinton wanted more security but Obama said "no."

    It is possible that Clinton's legal counsel may have revealed this story to various sources, in hopes of protecting her reputation. Reports also indicate that former President Bill Clinton has urged his wife to release State Department documents "that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya."

    Those same, unconfirmed reports indicate Obama will almost certainly lose the election if those documents are released.

    First of all, I'm repulsed by her picture. She looks like hell.

    Secondly, bring ON the documents already. They both need to be under a bus.

    "Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged on Wednesday that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010.

    On Wednesday morning, CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien asked the Utah Republican if he had "voted to cut the funding for embassy security."

    "Absolutely," Chaffetz said. "Look we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have…15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, a private army there, for President Obama, in Baghdad. And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces. When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices. You have to prioritize things.” "

    If the GOP cut spending for embassy security, why did the State Department have $2 BILLION in an expediency account that could have been used for it - AND WASN'T?

    You idiots still trotting out that tired old horseshit?

    Dems accuse GOP of cutting security funding in Libya despite majority Dem support for vote | The Daily Caller
    House Democrats opened Wednesday’s House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing by attacking Republicans for cuts to embassy security funding — cuts that only happened thanks to overwhelming support from House Democrats, including House Oversight Committee Ranking Democratic member Rep. Elijah Cummings. In fact, more House Democrats – 149 of them — voted for the cuts than did House Republicans, of which 147 voted for them.

    --

    Democratic staff on the Oversight Committee circulated a memo to Democratic members on Tuesday evening, too, that also attacks Republicans along the same line of reasoning.

    “Since gaining the majority in 2011, House Republicans have voted to reduce embassy security funding by approximately half a billion dollars below the amounts requested by the Obama Administration,” the memo reads. “Although the Senate has been able to restore a small portion of these funds, the final appropriations enacted by Congress in the previous two Fiscal Years have been far below the amounts requested by the Administration for embassy security, and far below the levels enacted in Fiscal Year 2010, the last year Democrats controlled the House.”

    What Cummings and the Democratic Oversight Committee staff are referring to is the final fiscal year 2012 omnibus appropriations package that included $2.075 billion for the programs – $567.5 million less than the Obama administration’s request.

    Cummings and the Democratic staff memo don’t mention that Democrats made those cuts into embassy security funding possible.
    If liberals couldn't lie, they'd have nothing to say.
