That's right. And Romney didn't use her son in his "political agenda." All he did was mention that he met the man.

It's Obama through the liberal media, who is using her son (and her) for Obama's political agenda.

The last thing that man said to his wife when she asked him if there was anything she could get for him was, "I could use a new President."

Romney is a career opportunist. Someone who will abandon his principles for power.

As for that, they should be there a year or more before lowering any security.So a president should have much better security no matter if they want it or not.

Better than "abandon AMERICAN principles"

Sicko Obama and crew are just either stupid, or trying to be a dictator with no regard for anything accept his far left philosophy being pushed onto people without even congress to throw the guy in jail, way I see it.

The guy is as dumb as a rock.

“Since gaining the majority in 2011, House Republicans have voted to reduce embassy security funding by approximately half a billion dollars below the amounts requested by the Obama Administration,” the memo reads.“Although the Senate has been able to restore a small portion of these funds, the final appropriations enacted by Congress in the previous two Fiscal Years have been far below the amounts requested by the Administration for embassy security, and far below the levels enacted in Fiscal Year 2010, the last year Democrats controlled the House.”
CHAFFETZ: Well, you’re also talking about a vote that never came to fruition because we actually continued at the exact same funding levels moving forward. This is a vote that happened over in the House but remember the Senate never got to this point. So we did a continuing resolution. So it’s a red herring. The reality is you have prioritize things and when you’re talking about such a small, small number of security personnel, they’re in country. That’s a problem.

The truth of the matter is that Obama/Hillary didn't answer the 3:00 AM call. But Obama did do a fundraising event the day the Americans were KILLED.

The Zenith of Inccompetence is here Liberal DNA!

The September 11th Islamic terrorist attack on American diplomats (and the death of the American ambassador) has become a contentious issue in the United States, mainly because of the upcoming November 6 elections (for the president and most members of the national legislature). The current government is being accused of ignoring the terrorist threat in Libya despite the media coverage of the threat beforehand and subsequent leaks of American intelligence alerts about potential attacks on American diplomats there. While an embarrassing, and fatal, lapse in judgment and administration of security, the nearness of elections makes the issue a political crisis with all manner of accusations being tossed around. The U.S. government did admit a week ago that it was indeed a terrorist attack but the weeks of delay in getting the American (FBI) investigators to Benghazi and apparent disputes between the intelligence agencies and presidential political advisors is apparently hindering the pursuit of the attackers. Some of the leaked documents indicate the American ambassador had requested increased security but was turned down by the State Department. That said, it's still unclear why the ambassador chose to spend September 11th (a day many Islamic terror groups liked to attack Americans on) in such a vulnerable place (Benghazi, noted for its many Islamic radical groups and in a lightly guarded consular compound, rather than the heavily guarded embassy back in Tripoli).

Mitt Romney is entitled to exploit the death of a soldier.

Mitt Romney is a scion. Scions are entitled to do as they please. Mitt Romney is royalty and ordinary rules do not apply to him.

Mitt Romney is an exploiter. He does this well. He is special. Mitt Romney is unique.

Mitt deserves to exploit anyone he wishes. He is extremely rich. He belongs to a religious cult and is extremely good looking. These things define a great leader. Mitt is a leader. Mitt doesn't take anything from anyone!!

Mitt had the guts and fortitude to spend his draft dodging years in France. That takes genuine guts!!

Mitt Romney has stashed millions in offshore accounts away from the prying eyes and tentacles of the United States Government. That's dedication to the country!!

Mitt Romney is backed by billionaires!!!I don't know about you,but, I would rather back a white-man supported by the ultra-rich, than a black-man that receives the bulk of his contributions from ordinary peons!!

VOTE ROMNEY AND RYAN 2012

Let the prophecy of Joseph Smith come to reality!!

NYC was hit by 9/11 and now the biggest atrocity on a US ambassador in another 911 where Barack studiously removed security and places suspicions that he knew an attack would happen.......is waking NY up.

Early absentee ballots received:

Party Reg
Dem 27.4%
Rep 54.2%
None/Oth 18.4%

Age
18-29 8.6%
30-44 10.9%
45-59 21.0%

THERE IS EVIDENCE THAT BARACK KNEW OF AMBASSADORS DEMISE BEFORE THE ATTACK WAS REPORTED. He was prepared with the excuse of an amateur video which is as amateurishly fraudulent as his birth certificate.

Liar. Steven's sister is leading the investigation into why her brother didn't get the security he asked for. Steven's father is dead. You Democrats are filthy liars. You'll do anything to shill for your stoopic messiah.

“It would really be abhorrent to make this into a campaign issue,” Jan Stevens, 77, said in a telephone interview from his home in Loomis, California, as he prepares for a memorial service for his son next week.
