#25541 Jan 24, 2013
I heard Rand Paul.Every one should.After all her excuses and her point of"what difference does it now make",Obama should fire her!!!Sooner than she can resign.Boy,did she proove her mismanagement and disregard for the chain of command!
#25542 Jan 24, 2013
Did she "proove" something to you or did terrorists kill Americans ??? Ps- What good does second guessing do again, because many more died during bushwhacker, without this dog/pony show.
The attacks on our embassies & diplomats are a result of perceived American weakness. Mitt Romney is right to point that out.
Donald Rumsfeld was Secretary of War Defense between 2001 and 2006, so none of this should be news to him:
June 14, 2002, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide bomber kills 12 and injures 51.
February 20, 2003, international diplomatic compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Truck bomb kills 17.
February 28, 2003, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Gunmen on motorcycles killed two consulate guards.
July 30, 2004, U.S. embassy in Taskkent, Uzbekistan
Suicide bomber kills two.
December 6, 2004, U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Militants stormed and occupied perimeter wall. Five killed, 10 wounded.
March 2, 2006, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide car bomber killed four, including a U.S. diplomate directly targeted by the assailants.
September 12, 2006, U.S. embassy in Damascus, Syria
Gunmen attacked embassy with grenades, automatic weapons, and a car bomb (though second truck bomb failed to detonate). One killed and 13 wounded.
January 12, 2007, U.S. embassy in Athens, Greece
A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the embassy building. No one was injured.
July 9, 2008, U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Turkey
Armed men attacked consulate with pistols and shotguns. Three policemen killed.
March 18, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana'a, Yemen
Mortar attack misses embassy, hits nearby girls' school instead.
September 17, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana'a, Yemen
Militants dressed as policemen attacked the embassy with RPGs, rifles, grenades and car bombs. Six Yemeni soldiers and seven civilians were killed. Sixteen more were injured.
So did those attacks (and the 9/11 ones, for that matter) happen because of "perceived American weakness"? Is that what Rumsfeld wants to argue—that our country's diplomatic missions were targeted because George Bush's America was perceived as weak?
As for Obama, the attacks in Cairo and Benghazi are the first two attacks on a U.S. diplomatic mission in an ostensibly peaceful country during his entire presidency—and they were sparked by that idiot wingnut Islamophobe Terri Jones. The embassy in Afghanistan was targeted by the Taliban last Sept. 13, but that's a country at war.
If you buy Rumsfeld's nonsense, you can tally the numbers to determine which administration was "perceived weaker."

you can always count on the confused stewge to try and defend the little black kid
#25544 Jan 24, 2013
....and Rubio and all the repukes auditioning for 2016. You repukes are still talking out of your faux asses I see. You will never learn.
Rand Paul vs. Hillary Clinton, clash of titans
The question of who could win such an unusual contest is difficult to answer. The Paul family has a tradition of winning votes from Democrats, but Clinton's new respectability could also pull votes away from the Republicans. One Kentucky poll found that in a head-to-head contest, she'd even beat Rand in his home state of Kentucky.
One Kentucky poll found that in a head-to-head contest,
Last I heard, Clinton's favorability rating was 69 percent, and the favorability rating of the Republicans in Congress is somewhere in the vicinity of 10 percent, on a good day.
The kinda says it all, doesn't it?

You LEMMINGS are as clueless as you were in 2010. Still letting your racism shine through and your ability to believe everything from your faux box idiots. GOP will need more than four years to repair the damage romney did. Amazing how democracy works huh? The majority wins. 2 terms for OBAMA and all Hillary has to do is run. Won't matter what loser repuke you choose. Sad little lemmings. Go make you some tea and call your imaginary friends to organize your tea party candidate. LMAO.

Rand Paul is an Idiot
Appearently determined to prove the Bush Theory -- all famous name sons of office-holding Republicans represent a generational degredation of genetic attributes -- Rand Paul has once again made a fool of himself.
Yesterday, during a Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing, Rand declared that those who think there should be a right to healthcare believe in slavery:
"With regard to the idea of whether you have a right to health care, you have realize what that implies," the senator said. "It’s not an abstraction. I’m a physician. That means you have a right to come to my house and conscript me."
"It means you believe in slavery," Paul added. "It means that you’re going to enslave not only me, but the janitor at my hospital, the person who cleans my office, the assistants who work in my office, the nurses."
"I’m a physician in your community and you say you have a right to health care," Paul continued. "You have a right to beat down my door with the police, escort me away and force me to take care of you? That’s ultimately what the right to free health care would be."
If Rand was sane instead of Libertarian, the Miranda warning would need to be updated:
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say or do can and will be held against you in the court of law. You have the right to speak to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be enslaved and forced to represent you...
Miranda has been in force for several decades, yet I'm not aware of any incident where the police showed up at an attorney's house (whether involved in the case or not), beat down the door and dragged their captured slave to court.
Senator Paul must think the right to free speech means you can conscript anyone to speak for you, and the right to religious freedom means you can make the Pope attend your daughter's First Communion.
Rights don't exist in a vacuum and are seldom defined as absolute. Courts are often called upon to find a reasonable balance between conflicting rights. The only absolute in this story describes the degree to which a simple-minded Libertarian can make an ass of himself.
