No, dummy. It was brought up AND it wasn't Americans who were killed, it was citizens of those countries outside the embassies. Try to keep up and get off the liberal lie machine.

let's look more closely at Rubio for a moment;

Says his father vwas a bastender and his mother a maid - and lives in the same neighborhood. Says he benifitted from federal student loans, his dad died with dignity due to Medicaid.

That is what he said,m right?

Why is a supposed middle class family, with supposedly little means to get by, selling his home for almost $700,000.00?

"Rubio's West Miami home where he's currently residing with his family is on the market for $675,000. The 2,600-square-foot house is located on 6060 SW 13th St., West Miami, 33144, according to Zillow. They bought the 4-bedroom, 3 1/2-bathroom home in 2005 for $550,000, it was listed in November 2012 and increased in value by $20,000 since. Zillow reported Miami homes increase 2 percent every month and overall up 16 percent from last year."

http://www.realtytoday.com/articles/3501/2013...

So a bartender and a maid afforded a $550,000.00 house in 2005?

Soime tips he must have gotten, huh?

But when did Rubios father pass away?

2010;

"My dad worked as a street vendor, security guard, apartment building manager and crossing guard. But for most of his life he was a bartender, and by all accounts a great one."

http://www.sunshinestatesarah.com/2010/09/rub...

Answer me this - if they lived in a home valued at over a half million dollars, how did people of meager means afford this?

Why did his father recieve Medicare, when he obviously had huge resources to pay for his fathers treatment?

Where did all that cash come from?

Why should others be "means tested", but his own family excluded?

Rubios got a lot of questions to answer - and he's a liar - saying I want to protect my neighbors, while selling for a high price and relocating to Washington.

What BS!!!!

Witch hunting?? LMAO
More like democrat bullshit headlines to scare women..typical tactics..
GOP could do a better job of talking about opposition to the bill as a matter of accountability and effectiveness. But, she added, "Having the courage to question various sections of this bill doesn't make you pro-abuse or anti-women. No bill should receive unconditional support because its intentions are noble or its title sounds beneficial."
that the law is an unnecessary overreach by the federal government, and that it represents a "feminist" attack on family values. "The ideological foundations of the law are flawed and have led to an inability to help victims effectively," Christina Villegas, a visiting fellow at the conservative Independent Women's Forum and adjunct professor of political science at Cal State San Bernadino,
Christina Villegas is female AND hispanic. She obviously is on to the left bullshit tactics. Hilarious.
OMG...the republicans hate women and hispanics.." OMG...Bush sprayed us with Chemtrials!" OMG....."Bush is going to rule a new world order from a ranch in Paraguay!"
OMG...Romney is rich and Pelosi, Kerry and Nobama are dirt poor and care about the little people!"
Keep 'em coming boys....getting more hilarious every day.

Only filthy rich ObamaCrats like John Kerry, and Diane Feinstein deserve anyones respect.

In Obama Land, Party ideology trumps all sense of honor, fairplay, reason, and basic common sense. Ask that Wasserman Schultz woman.

THEY DID NOT REQUEST HELP LIKE BENGHAIZ DID. They were NOT ignored like Benghazi was. Bush did not go off on a campaign trail and get on every talk show that he possibly could and LIE stating it was a VIDEO. You are trying to mix apples and oranges and all you got was a FRUIT salad. If this would have been a normal attack there would not have been anything said but THIS WAS A PLEA FOR HELP, OBAMA IGNORED IT AND MURDERED THEM.

Gosh, I thought this thread was about VAWA and Domestic Violence.

Here is a link which if you don't do anything else today you should by all means see, and PARTICULARLY the short movie by Julie Borowski:

http://paface.org/landing/say-no-vawa-bullies...

I have seen these dastardly Orwellian VAWA inquisitions used against innocent men in courts of law. If these evil trends prevail, due process of law guaranteed us by the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence is dead, buried, and forgotten.

I am not joking. This is no fiction!

I am an old retired lawyer -- a very sad old retired lawyer when I see this -- who has never seen trials in a Constitutional republic like ours with its tradition of habeas corpus, love of freedom and the presumption of innocence, respect for Magna Charta, and the great bulwark against tyranny we call the Bill of Rights turn almost overnight into Stalinist show trials, kangaroo courts, and Spanish Inquisitions--- just to satisfy the vengeful hatred and bloodlust of a largely illiterate mass of haters in our population!

Hell, let's just go back to 16th century Salem, Massachusettts and the witch trials!

BREAKING: Obama made no phone calls on night of Benghazi attack, White House says

President Obama didn’t make any phone calls the night of the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, the White House said in a letter to Congress released Thursday.
“During the entire attack, the president of the United States never picked up the phone to put the weight of his office in the mix,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, who had held up Mr. Obama’s defense secretary nominee to force the information to be released.
__________
SEE RELATED: Obama punted to Panetta for U.S. response to Benghazi attack
__________
Mr. Graham said that if Mr. Obama had picked up the phone, at least two of the Americans killed in the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi might still be alive because he might have been able to push U.S. aid to get to the scene faster.
The White House has said Mr. Obama was kept up to date on the attack by his staff, though after being alerted to the attack in a pre-scheduled afternoon meeting he never spoke again with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin E. Dempsey or then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Mr. Panetta told Congress last week that he knew immediately the attacks were a terrorist assault, though the White House downplayed that notion in the first five days after the attack.
