That's interesting the people wanted it, why was there a mandate then?
Now the tsa is at Romney events, oh yeah he believes in freedom.
It's a state issue NOT a federal issue.

Private event and they have the right to have security.. Just like a bar hires bouncers. Their choice, NOT the federal governments.

The President, and his drunken Secretary of State (I've seen the pictures) forgot to notify the Ambassador they met with the Libyan authorities 3 days before the attack, and wree notified there was an imminent attack.

Benghazi, Libya (CNN)-- Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.

Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security.

He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn't good for international business.

"The situation is frightening, it scares us," Mabrouk said they told the U.S. officials. He did not say how they responded.

Possible security leak in Libya
Mabrouk said it was not the first time he has warned foreigners about the worsening security situation in the face of the growing presence of armed jihadist groups in the Benghazi area.

The main building in the compound is in charred ruins.

Disagreement over how attack began

The suite where the body of the ambassador was found was protected by a large door with steel bars; the windows had steel bars.

His body was recovered after looters broke into the room. It appears his security detail left him in the room while they tried to deal with the attack.

There are numerous questions about what happened at the consulate where protesters had gathered to demonstrate against the film "Innocence of Muslims," which reportedly was made in California by a filmmaker whose identity is unclear.

Chief among the questions is what happened to U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, who went missing during the attack.

The State Department has not released details about how Stevens died, though numerous media reports have said the ambassador was taken from the consulate to the Benghazi medical center by locals.

He arrived at the hospital, according to the reports, unresponsive and covered in soot from the fire. A doctor was unable to revive him and declared him dead, the reports said.

According to one of the Libyan security guards who was stationed at one of the gates armed with only a radio, the assault began simultaneously from three directions.

Heavy machine guns and rocket -propelled grenades were used, according to the guard. He said masked men threatened to kill him at gunpoint for 'protecting the infidels. He declined to appear on camera for fear of repercussions.

Excuse me, the comment was that the people wanted it in MA, if they wanted it there wouldn't have to be a mandate.
Does Romney take any government money for campaign events?
So what you are saying is Romney believes in freedom except at his own private events?

You don't hear the Demorats talking about his quick response and how he single handedly saved their lives.

Obama statement that he can't decide whether or not Egypt is an enemy or a friend really shines a spotlight on his failure in foreign affairs. Perhaps that is why this arrogant pretender threw our friend Israel under the bus. He doesn't have the common sense to distinguish an enemy from a friend, and he is in charge of running America? Meanwhile, after having provoked riots all over the Middle East with his foreign policy of apologizing for American conduct while at the same time beating his chest and claiming personal responsibility for Osama's death, Obama, while the Middle East goes up in flames and Iran is on the verge of having nukes, is busy hanging out with Jay Lo and the Pimp with a Limp and on his knees begging for handouts.

That is only half of it, Obama spent all last night listening to music by Wagner and now he wants to attack Poland.
