GOP Rep: I ‘Absolutely’ Voted To Cut Funding For Embassy Security

Hillary Clinton warned GOP, "Don't Cut Embassy Security Funding".

Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans' proposed cuts to her department would be "detrimental to America's national security" -- a charge Republicans rejected.

Mitt Romney slammed Obama for not standing up against China, but before that, he slammed Obama for standing up to China. See, Romney said one thing and then "flipped". Was it a "flop"?

2009 FPI Forum: Luncheon with Governor Mitt Romney - YouTube!

A 2009 Video Clip Shows Mitt Romney Speaking Out Against Anti-China Trade Protectionism -- The Total Opposite Of His Current Anti-China Line.

And Republicans are saying I'm a liar with I say they are thrilled Mitt is moving jobs to China. They are more than thrilled.

Then there is the overseas blooper reel from Just a few months ago. And Romney is really, really hated in Italy.

Romney is hated in Italy. Seriously hated.
That’s because Bain Capital, under Romney as chief executive officer, made about $1 billion in a leveraged buyout 12 years ago that remains controversial in Italy to this day.

Romney Persona Non Grata in Italy for Bain

This debate is going to be hilarious.

Romney made a fool of himself on the one small venture into foreign policy he tried the other night;

hopefully he'll double down.

I think the President should walk into the debate with a big hunk of hair hanging off his lapel, and when someone asks him what it is,

he says, it's Bin Laden's scalp...


...any more questions, motherfuckers??

Even if congress votes to cut overall embassy security, that does not mean that they will increase it, as necessary, when the situation calls for it.

I keep hearing that it's up to the countries to protect embassies there. So, were we cutting funding here or abroad? Let's be clear before we toss accusations.

There were calls for more security at the Libyan embassy. Whose responsibility was that and should our officials have talked to officials in Libya?

Yeah. A lot of them actually. He should start with, "Why did you leave our Libyan ambassador and his staff with inadequate protection, especially after they spent months begging for help?"

No one needs even try that "there wasn't enough money", crap, because if they couldn't protect them, they should have pulled them out. Or cut funding for the Volts in Vienna.

Those that think Obama is looking forward to Monday's debate and that he's going to just sail right through it need to do a little research. Start with this article.
***************************************************************
Obama Claims Al Qaeda Is ‘Remnant’ After They Sack Our Consulate
By: streiff (Diary) | October 19th, 2012 at 05:00 PM |

Last night in Barack Obama appearance on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, after classifying the deaths of four Americans in the al Qaeda attack on our Benghazi consulate as “not optimal”, he had this to say:

“Now there’s some tough trade-offs, I mean there are times when there are bad folks somewhere on the other side of the world and you’ve got to make a call and it’s not optimal,” he continued. “When you look at our track record as to say we’ve ended the war in Iraq, we’re winding down the war in Afghanistan we’ve gone after Al Qaeda and it’s leadership, it’s true that Al Qaeda is still active at least remnants of it are staging in North Africa and the Middle East, and sometimes you’ve got to make some tough calls, but you can do so that is consistent with international law and American law.”

Whether this is true or not depends if you call deliberately losing a war we had won in Iraq as “ended”, a precipitous retreat from Afghanistan “winding down”, and an al Qaeda that is more active today than it was six years ago as “remnants.”

Thanks to the vacillation of the ineptocrats in the Obama regime, al Qaeda has enjoyed a resurgence, this time the North Africa. Known by the acronym AQIM, for al Qaeda in the Maghreb, it is nothing if not ambitious

According to West Point’s center on terrorism, ”a rough sketch” of AQIM’s principle objectives includes ridding North Africa of western influence, overthrowing apostate “unbeliever” governments (including Algeria, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, and Tunisia), and installing fundamentalist regimes based on Islamic law or Sharia. Experts say AQIM’s narrative blends Salafi-jihadi ideology with North African nuances, including references to the early Islamic conquest of the Maghreb and the Iberian Peninsula. A component of the Salafi-jihadi philosophy is waging war against the “far enemy,” which, in the case of AQIM, is primarily Spain and France. The group has referred to Spain as “our country” and called for its reconquest; likewise, AQIM has declared war on France, which reciprocated the gesture in 2010.

Thanks to our opportunistic and ill-considered overthrow of Muammar Qaddafi, AQIM now has established toehold on the Mediterranean. Finally, the reality has persuaded the Obama regime to look past the sweet afterglow and post-coital cigarette they enjoyed following the Arab Spring and are now coming to grips, in some small way, with the aftermath.
he White House has held a series of secret meetings in recent months to examine the threat posed by al-Qaeda’s franchise in North Africa and consider for the first time whether to prepare for unilateral strikes, U.S. officials said.

The deliberations reflect concern that al-Qaeda’s African affiliate has become more dangerous since gaining control of large pockets of territory in Mali and acquiring weapons from post-revolution Libya. The discussions predate the Sept. 11 attacks on U.S. compounds in Libya but gained urgency after the assaults there were linked to al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM.

U.S. officials said the discussions have focused on ways to help regional militaries confront al-Qaeda but have also explored the possibility of direct U.S. intervention if the terrorist group continues unchecked.

“Right now, we’re not in position to do much about it,” said a senior U.S. counterterrorism official involved in the talks. As a result, he said, officials have begun to consider contingencies, including the question of “do we or don’t we” deploy drones.

The effort has been led by White House counterterrorism adviser John O. Brennan and involves top officials from the CIA, State Department and Pentagon. At the same time, the U.S. military commander for Africa has crisscrossed the region in recent weeks, making stops in Mauritania, Algeria and other countries that could become part of a peacekeeping force for Mali.

White House officials declined to comment.

I sincerely hope Romney brings up the "Not optimal" Canard like the Nutter Butters on here are. I really do.

He's more likely to bring up the cables from the ambassador that were released today.

Can you imagine Obama saying, "This is the second time Republicans ignored a warning from a Clinton"? Wow, powerful.

Republicans try to harp on one thing, but this is about foreign policy. Besides, Republicans don't care about Americans dying. Everyone knows that. "Let him die" "Feed the poor and they will breed".

You keep telling yourself that. This cover up is not going away. There are too many media sources these days for them to shove this genie back in the bottle. They knew Al Qaeda had a large presence in Benghazi. The Ambassador himself told them about Al Qaeda flags flying over Benghazi government buildings. Obama and Hillary left those people to die.

educate yourself, dumb ass. Obama supports bringing Highly Skilled Immigrants and giving them green cards, Romney supports this... why don't you?

Should Highly Skilled International Students Be Given Green Cards?: The short answer is yes

Highly Skilled Immigrants and U.S. Jobs
During the 2011 legislative session, bills that made it easier for highly educated foreigners to work here advanced in both the U.S. House and Senate. President Obama also called for changing policy to allow greater numbers of talented immigrants to work in the country.

Leniency toward highly skilled foreigners is one part of the immigration reform puzzle that has had supporters from both the Republican and Democratic parties.
Immigrants with advanced degrees boost employment for U.S. natives. The research concluded that the most dramatic effect occurred when the immigrants had advanced degrees from U.S. universities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the so-called STEM fields.

Temporary foreign workers, both skilled and unskilled, boost U.S. employment. States that took advantage of the H-1B visa program for skilled workers and H-2B workers for less-skilled non-agricultural jobs had higher employment rates among native workers.

The study found no evidence that, overall, foreign-born workers hurt U.S. employment. The research debunks the idea that immigration leads to fewer jobs for U.S. natives.

Highly educated immigrants pay far more in taxes than they receive in benefits. According to the study, in 2009, the average the average foreign-born adult with an advanced degree paid over $22,500 in federal, state and payroll taxes. Yet, their families received benefits that were only one-tenth that size through government programs such as welfare, unemployment benefits and Medicaid.

One thing the Goopers haven't explained. WHY would Obama want to cover it up? To what end? To what advantage?

Obama overthrew Gadaffi, then simply left Lybia with a power void.

He had just been dancing on Bin Laden's grave at the Democrat Convention, and did not want to let it be known that Al Quaeda had simply stepped in to take control in the vaccum he created.

So they made up an absurd story about a riot and a video and tried to deceive the American public for his own political gain.

Obama is a piece of shit and should go to jail.
