Biden’s Libya Claims
Biden claimed that Ryan “cut embassy security in his budget $300 million below what we asked for.” That’s an exaggeration. The fiscal year 2012 funding was $264 million less than the administration had requested, and the funding isn’t only for security. It covers construction and maintenance as well.

Yep, half-truths alright.
Thank you for confirming that republicans CUT EMBASSY SECURITY FUNDING and share a responsibility in the deaths of Americans in Benghazi?

The State Department has unveiled its plans for an extravagant new embassy in London, an expensive crystal cube that features a 100-foot moat among its defenses -- but the hi-tech hive is already facing angry salvos from fuming taxpayer watchdogs.
The new structure, reported by the Times of London to cost $1 billion, would set a glittering jewel in the crown of American presence abroad, even as soaring deficits and unemployment continue to threaten the economy at home.
"It's fun to build something when it's not your money," said David Williams, vice president for policy at Citizens Against Government Waste, who called the plans a "blank check" for government spending and excess.
Thanks for confirming that the cuts Republicans made to embassy security is what led to the deaths of Americans in Benghazi!

Hmmm, whats the definition of stereotyping? "A stereotype is a thought that may be adopted about specific types of individuals or certain ways of doing things."

Good job Billy! Not only are you stereotyping, you are a racist! Racism works both ways ya know. Its not just for minorities... Thanks for coming out of the closet with your other buddies like the fraudulent veteran. Your obsession with skin color is an obvious sickness and divides this country more than unites it. This country will be a better place once all of you racists are gone.

There's nothing inherently wrong with stereotyping. We do it to ourselves as people and organizations, wittingly or not, all the time for a variety of reasons, sometimes as an effort to achieve political favor. The issue is not necessarily a question of ethics, but one of practicality. Specifically, it begs questions such as, "is it useful, helpful, foolish, del-defeating, etc.?"

The Republican Party has stereotyped itself as, generally speaking, the party of conservative old white guys and more specifically as paying homage to the right wing fundamental extremist values of the tea partiers. I personally believe this to be a foolishly self-defeating stereotype, which the Republican leadership has acknowledged by concluding they need to not say things in public venues that are consistent with their own stereotype, a decision that they find difficult to implement in practice as they persist in alienating just about every group of voters excel conservative old white men, and most curiously, the women who are loyal to them.

Needless to say, the Republicans' stereotype is good for the Democrats and independents. That's basically why I think its foolish. The Democrats' stereotype on the other hand is wise because it is all-inclusive, as in "freedom and justice for all."

How about the families of the veterans that died for oil?

How about these "Benghazi's" under Bush:

Jan. 22, 2002: Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami Attacks Indian U.S. Consulate

Five policemen were killed and 16 injured in the eastern Indian city of Calcutta because of an attack on the U.S. consulate by militant group Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami. American employees including the consul-general in Calcutta, Christopher Sandrolini, were unscathed, and those injured and killed were all Indians.

June 14, 2002: Suicide Car-Bomb Outside U.S. Consulate in Karachi

Twelve people died in an attack outside the U.S. consulate in Karachi when militants exploded a car bomb. A Taliban splinter group referred to as Al-Qanoon, or "The Law," claimed responsibility for the attacks that also injured 51 people. Two hired guards, a Marine, and five Pakistani staff members were among the injured in the attack that followed then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's visit to the country.

Oct. 12, 2002: String Of Bali Bombings Included U.S. Consulate

The U.S. consulate in Indonesia was attacked as part of the 'Bali bombings' on a devastating October night. While there were no fatalities at the consulate, seven Americans were among the 202 dead at the coordinated blasts inside a bar and outside a nightclub.

There are about 15 "Benghazi's" under Bush...Are you outraged for their families as well?

Yeah, we're all familiar with that kind of freedom. Buy healthcare insurance or otherwise we will fine you. Smoke cigarettes, we will tax you to death. Don't institute a seat belt law, we will hold highway funds from your state.

Why don't you tell us who created that so-called stereotype of Republicans and what conglomerate helped them brainwash America into believing it?

There is $6 billion dollars missing from the State Department's budget from when Hillary was Secretary of State. That would have provided great security had they not stolen it first. Find the money then we will look at giving them some more. In the mean time the attack in Benghazi will not go away.

Our gas is high, because the government gets a percentage in taxes. The more they ask the companies to charge the more money they make off the poor. They need all the money they can get. They lost $6 billion dollars to Hillary's State Department. It is just gone. They are so careless with our money

Oh dear. I am so sorry. Miss Hillary has been hiding out for months, because she didn't want to admit to her part in the Benghazi mess. Now she was supposed to appear in San Diego April 11th, but some protesters from "The Difference Matters" and the mom of Sean Smith have chased her underground. Sean was with Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi when the U S State Department let them die for nothing. Hillary backed out of her appearance at the San Diego Convention Center and will appear by video. Too bad. I hope Hillary knows these people will be with her all during her campaign for President. I have been watching for this appearance for a few weeks now.

That is one way to look at it, but another would be that although 13 Ambassadors died not a single official statement was ever issued. Not one. 13 dead Ambassadors and they did not even rate a one sentence memo.

That's nothing new for Republicans though. Remember when 241 Marines were killed when their barracks were blown up in 1983? There was never a statement from Saint Reagan about that either. Of course he did invade Grenada two days later so he was probably busy at the time.

One other Ambassador was murdered, and I don't remember who was President. You people can't win elections without fraud, and you can't tell the truth at all.

No, no, no, sheep. You don't get no stinkin' oil!! You don't profit, sheep. Bush is an oil Barron. Are you stupid? Halliburton profits, not you, sheepy...Dick "shotgun" Chaney profits not you.

Gas prices? You should call OPEC. That's who controls gas and oil. We get most of oil from Canada. Blame them. The president doesn't control gas prices. Here is why sheep...Oil is a global market in which America is a big consumer but a small supplier. We consume about 20 percent of the world’s oil but hold only 2 percent of the oil reserves. That means we are, in economics jargon,“price takers.” Domestic production has increased during the Obama administration, but it has had minimal effects on global prices because, as producers, we are just too small to matter much. And even if domestic oil companies further increased production, they would sell to the highest global bidder.
That's economics, sheep.

Please answer the question, were you outraged at these and other attacks under Bush?
