No, actually he didn't. He was soundly criticized for not doing so.
Common sense would dictate if Libya was so dangerous, our people should have had more security or been evacuated knowing how things were heating up.
Does that even register?
Carol, Carol, Carol.

Romney said that it took Obama 3 days to admit is was a terrorist attack.

The moderator said that was not true.

Obama told him to watch the video.

In some countries, the amount & type of security can be limited by that government.

The Embassy was a lot more secure than the "consulate" in Benghazi. To be secure, mot consulates are constructed with many safety & security features. At that time, we were just renting a building.

Here is an answer given by someone who used to be at numerous consulates.The question was "how many marines are there that typically provide security at consulates?"

his answer: "There are NO "soldiers" located at any US Embassy in the world with a role of security.

There are Marine Security Detachments with the largest being no more than 15 Marine Watch Standers and Detachment Commander. Forget what you've seen in Rules of Engagement or other fictional movies as these Marines are only responsible for the internal protection of Classified Documents and the INTERNAL integrity of the Embassy. They push the button that allows entry within the "skin" of the Embassy and through the last hard door. They do not check bags, they do not monitory the metal detector. This is all handled by a local contracted guard force, The size and capability of the Local Guard Force (LGF) is dependent on the country and the needs of the Embassy. For example when I was in "Country X" the LGF carried what looked like guns but they were only loaded with tear gas cartridges. The rest of the security is provided by host nation military / police forces. You have to understand the embarrassment an incident at a US Embassy would cause to the host nation. They do their best to protect all foreign embassies, not just the US.

The Marines and the LGF is totally administered by and reports to the head Diplomatic Security Officer at any given post. Think Sheriff who has a force of beat cops and detectives.

The only exception to this rule is the US Embassies in Iraq and Afghanistan that have a Quick Reaction Force of US (and other countries belonging to the coalition) on stand-by to provide assistance as required.

<quoted text>To say that you and Subversive Barry or fools of equal demerit would not be a stretch by any imagination. "A lot of people who don't know the origin of the phrase picture someone pulling a rope, cord, or some other "line"--"tow the line"--as a way of working for whomever the "line" belongs to. Thus, if the administration has a "line"--i.e., a "party line"--then those who side with the administration help to pull it ("tow" it) along.
Wrong.
The phrase "toe the line" is equivalent to "toe the mark," both of which mean to conform to a rule or a standard. The Oxford Dictionary of Word Histories (Oxford: Oxford Univ. Press, 2002; ed. by Glynnis Chantrell) says, "The idiom toe the line from an athletics analogy originated in the early 19th century" (514)."
Does anyone even give a sht? We all know what he meant. Libturds are so stupid.

So, I am a bigot to not like those who stick their religion in your face & try to legislate it. Bible thumpers are these people.

These people opted not to vote for Romney because of his religion. Is it now bigoted because I don't like the bigoted actions of Bible Thumpers.
