Are you sure Obama and Biden "respect vets in words and policy?"
On December 14, 1995, he voted against HR 2099, Veterans Affairs, HUD FY '96 Appropriations Bill. On December 12 of the same year, he voted against the Flag Desecration SJ Res 31-Resolution.
During the recent political debate with Paul Ryan, when asked about the security failure in Benghazi that resulted in four American being killed, Biden is quoted as saying "We weren't told they wanted more security there."
In fact, Charlene R. Lamb of the State Department, who is in charge of diplomatic security testified before a Congressional hearing this week that she would "personally not support" the request for additional security as requested, but would rather wait until Libyans could be trained as security for the US embassy in Benghazi. Joe Biden lied in his answer.
And as a results of this flawed State Department security policy, another embassy staffer in Yemen was killed yesterday. Biden knew this latest incident had happened, and still gave the "we didn't know" administration answer.
You are completely correct Patriot. They either blind and can't see what is going on around them or they are too stupid to admit it!!!!!

Sept 14 2012...

Watching the solemn faced obama and hilliary on TV it was clear the goal for those two was to distance themselves from the horrific deaths of 4 innocent Americans who were sitting ducks in Libya.
The White House smoke about a movie is beginning to clear and we see who is responsible for not keeping a close eye on the hen house.
The Libya incident reeks with incompetence just like the very close call just a few years ago over Detroit on Christmas Day when the perpís own father blew the whistle and no one took him seriously. Security incompetence was in full swing all while kids, grandparents and everyday Americans were getting the third degree before they boarded a plane.
For Libya there were warnings and red lights that went way beyond the mere anger over a movie and no one bothered to inform those in harm's way and that is inexcusable.
Once again the incompetence reeks and the self serving chumps for change are distancing themselves with finger pointing and spurious condolences. It's a very sick obamanation and it must end or the next victims of their utter incompetence could be you and yours.

Violating the constitution is illegal. Large-scale illegal operations by government agencies like the military, CIA, and NSA that target the American people and/or the public interest (like, for example, widespread unwarranted surveillance) is clearly treason. Blowing the whistle on such operations is the DUTY of every member/employee of the agencies involved. NOT reporting treason is "misprision of treason" and grounds for prosecution. Retaliation against whistleblowers is illegal and, potentially, treason or misprision of treason.
" Government agencies like the military, CIA, and NSA that target the American people and/or the public interest (like, for example, widespread unwarranted surveillance) is clearly treason".

Not any more.

Read the Republican sponsored Patriot Act.

"Blowing the whistle on such operations is the DUTY of every member/employee of the agencies involved".

You would then be declared an "enemy combatant", arrested and never to be heard from again.

Her grief only surfaced when she thought her son's image is being tarnished by the "wrong politician". I would like to see what she had to say about Joe Biden saying the Obama administration had no knowledge of a request for an increase and extension of security at the Benghazi embassy, when in fact the Clinton State Department had turned the request down weeks before the attack that killed her son.
Any candidate running for President against Obama has a right and obligation to bring this flawed security policy of his administration to light, so no other mothers have to share this mother's grief.
bonehead - you think these requests go through the white house? You don't think that there ar many requests at outposts around the world?You know of course that the repugs blocked funding for expanding the number of security folks under the dept of state,don't you?

Quit lying and trying to exploit these deaths. It is disgusting.

The PATRIOT ACT and similar legislation is unconstitutional, period. Also, it isn't just the product of Republicans. Both parties have been co-opted by criminals, and there are also plenty of Democrats who have also violated their oaths of office by shredding the constitution through legislation or by abdicating their responsibilities when the Executive Branch engages in a criminal power-grab.

Anyone who is part of the "treason machine" (by, for example, "disappearing" political dissidents or by fighting in illegal wars) is violating his oath of office and serving the traitors who have hijacked this nation.

We already know everything we need to know about President Obama, and his clown Vice President. We are looking at a landslide election, and a new President in January. I couldn't figure out whether Biden is an alcoholic, and drunk on Thursday, or if he is just certifiable. Either way he made a complete fool of himself, and handed Romney-Ryan the election.

"Violating his oath of office"?

Not since 9/11.

It's all legal now.

It was a product of republicans and their legislation, they are the ones that wrote Patriot Act and they are the ones that implemented it.

9/11 was nothing BUT a "power grab" by George Bush.

He fought against the creation of 9/11 investigation and when the POS was asked to give a deposition, he wouldn't give it under oath.

Then when George did say he would, he wouldn't do a deposition, he wouldn't do it separately from Dick Cheney.

Under oath? NO.

By yourself? NO.

Without Cheney? NO.

If a "law" violates the fundamental contract between the government and the governed, then we the governed have every right to reject it and challenge the architects of that "law." When a government becomes unresponsive to the will of its citizens, then the citizens can over-ride the government and invoke something along the lines of a "Declaration of Independence" from a power elite that have abused the trust of the people.

Both corporate-funded "parties" have colluded in the dismantling of our constitution. The crimes of the Bush administration were enabled by a subservient Congress and Judicial Branch, and they have been perpetuated and even in some cases expanded under the Obama administration.
