So? The correct question was why did we have a consulate and CIA base in Benghazi? What constitutional authority did the Executive branch have to establish and maintain them?
You should probably stick to birth certificates and other such trivial nonsense.
The most likely explanation involves clandestine weapons supplied to the rebels, for use in Libya or elsewhere.

Current low interest rates have a significant influence on the real estate market and those rates are bound to increase.
Yes they will pulling money out of both equities and real estate markets. We've seen how bad a real estate driven economy can be so its for the best. I hope that between that and technology we'll see an end to the US suburban economic model.

We'll see if this prediction fares as well as your predictions about Romney.

Tensing your question is really irrelevant it’s after the fact the relevant question is ‘Why’ was the request for additional security Denied?

A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship like Obama wanna be.
The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty; 1776
From liberty to abundance; (Reagan)
From abundance to complacency; (Bill Clinton womanizer)
From complacency to apathy; (Obamaville)
From apathy to dependence in Obama
From dependence in Obama back into dictatorship.

Which is why BOTH parties are retarded on foreign policy. The only ones with a half a clue are Ron & Rand Paul (except they are too wimpy re: National defense). Its a really simple equation:

ZERO $$ in foreign aid + Zero intervention in other Country's affairs + ZERO interaction with arabs at all = "perfectenschlaag".. ....

Not to me it isn't. Aren't you a teabagger? If so it shouldn't be irrelevant to you either.

I'm not going to convince you. You're convinced that you're powerless against both parties therefore you can only chose the lesser of two evils.
Do you not see the inherent discontinuity between that and the founding principles of this country? None of their "authority" derives from any constitutional authority. As long as we play along we abet their criminality.
What you're saying is that I've surrendered__maybe so, maybe not so.

By remaining registered as a (R) I'm able to participate (vote) in every race in my district's primaries and then choose whoever I wish in the general elections. I'm a super voter__if there is something that needs voting on I'll be there.

My (I) and (L) friends sit at at home until the general election rolls around and then vote for whoever happens to be on the ballot.

That's not a winning formula__just saying.

Despite the tragedy of the situation I do see this as another nail in the coffin of political Islam.
The glass is always full, its the air:water ratio that changes.
"Islam" sucks, plain and simple. Not to say there arent a lot of good muslims, but there are just too many radical losers for it to ever be successful/peaceful faction. Sounds a lot like the same vices, downfalls, and travails of the American negro (of which many ARE muslim).....

Obama's mistake was to promise people in those countries more than he could deliver.
In Egypt, his biggest mistake was demanding that Mubarak leave office, without any suitable replacement.
Galt understands that you disapprove of our military intervention in Libya. Correct?
In summary, we would be better off if Obama had done nothing.
But the best is yet to come in Syria.
Unless you give him a free pass for incompetence just because he is black?
Two big mistakes Galt makes although there are too many other mistakes to mention. 1. President Obama is not the leader of Egypt , but our own American head of state and there wasn't any 'promises' he made if Mubarak was overthrown. 2. President Obama had nothing to do with Mubarak or Morsi's removal , but the Egyptian military did make that choice for the Egyptian people rather than risk too much democratic turmoil and political change.

Your question is a ridiculous one because requests for security wasn't denied , unless you mean the denial by Congress to provide the full funding requests made by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to strengthen U S embassy security six months before the Benghazi attack. Is that the denial of security that you are asking about? I suggest that you go ask Darrell Issa that question.

Blaming Obama for what's going on in Egypt is pretty far out there, even for you. Surely you aren't suggesting Obama is responsible, are you?

Front….The problem with your argument is Lamb was asked whether there was "any budget consideration and lack of budget" which played into the number of people assigned for security at the Benghazi consulate. Lamb's answer: "No’ I know how Facts are Liberals worst enemy!!

No, although he was in the 08 (R) primary.

In both general elections I chose Obama however.

In local elections, where the turnouts are smaller each vote gains importance particularly in school board races and city councils where teaturds and religious freaks can really cause problems.

It is evident that now the only religion allowed to express their religion and political clout in Our public schools are the Muslims and the teachings of Islam....

Oregon's GOP Chair Wants to Sprinkle Nuclear Waste From Airplanes

After months of in-fighting, the beleaguered Oregon Republican Party elected a new chairman last weekend. His name is Art Robinson, and he wants to sprinkle radioactive waste from airplanes to build up our resistance to degenerative illnesses. Robinson, who unsuccessfully ran for Congress against progressive Rep. Peter DeFazio in 2010 and 2012, took over after the previous chair resigned in advance of a recall campaign over her alleged financial mismanagement.
