Obama, the King of the Cowards, is now letting a marine rot in jail in Mexico. Hasn't said a word about it. He's a stinking democrat lying coward.
He is going to be impeached for Benghazi. You watch.

He's no longer an active duty Marine, he's a criminal in prison in Mexico. That's a personal matter not an issue for the State.

He, as an American didn't have a right to violate Mexico's Law and carry a weapon into Mexico.

This has been a bad week for Republicans, yesterday the Benghazi Report was released, and low and behold, the direct cause of the deaths of Ambassador Stevens was due to the Budget Cuts implemented by the Republicans on demand from the Tea Party which impeded the State Department from hiring security personnel and providing diplomatic post facility security enhancements.

Now, Boehner has crapped on his Plan B Proposal, the Tea Party refused to support his legislation to avoid the Fiscal Cliff.

The end is near..... The Wheels on the GOP Wagon have squared.

Boehner is assured of being another Republican one term disgraced Speaker of the House......

the Proveribal Republicans House is on Fire...... ROFLMAO

Boehner and the Tea Party epitomizes "Lame Duck"

It is killing idiots like you to see that they named the Black guy who single-handedly found and killed Osama bin Laden Time’s Man of the Year after being re-elected in a landslide with a mandate… I remember all the stupid crap you were posting on here over the last few years saying that you can’t wait until Obama loses in 2012… I wish I could have been there to see the look of shock on that ugly face of yours on November 6th… I would have spit right in your face and laughed.
Nobama used Bush's policies to find bin laden, the CIA found bin laden with Bush's interrogations who found the courier, who revealed the doctor who gave the location of the compound of bin laden........the doctor is NOW rotting in a Pakastani jail with no help from the chimp in chief. Nobama couldn't find his butt with a flashlight single-handely.

You said Pelosi would be back as speaker. LMAO now her own party is asking her to step down. all the news sources say the narrow win by oblumber, no change in the senate, house stays GOP, NO MANDATE, you moron. 30 republican governors now who are defying the little dictator wannabe.! LMAO

Budget cuts by GOP caused Benghazi! You poor misguided boy, same lame propaganda. But the current admininstration could keep Marines at all embassies and consulates all over Europe and other non threat areas?????? Keep the funny BS coming.

When asked in Wednesday’s hearing if the refusal to provide more security was caused by budget cuts to embassy security, Charlene Lamb, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for International Programs replied “No, sir”. So according to Lamb, a lack of available financial resources was not behind the lack of proper security in Benghazi.

Marines in the Embassy program cost money to train, and deploy..... there was no funding for enhanced security for diplomatic post due to GOP Budget Cuts of more than $100 Billion in Feb 2011

Remember the debate and the Republican position to stop funding Foreign Aid and the State Department?

It's not like Hillary didn't go straight to Boehner about State Department Funding being cut..... It was covered extensively in the News.

G.O.P. Budget Cuts Would Hurt U.S. Standing, Clinton Says ...
[Feb 14, 2011] Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said that “ cuts of ... What Obama’s Budget Cuts ... decrease for the State Department from current ...
www.nytimes.com/2011/02/15/us/politics/15cong...

"WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton warned Monday that Republican-proposed cuts in foreign aid to be considered by the House this week would harm the nation’s security interests and standing across the globe In a letter to the House Appropriations Committee and in a visit to Capitol Hill for a private meeting with the House speaker, John A. Boehner, Mrs. Clinton sounded the alarm about reductions that she said amounted to a 16 percent decrease for the State Department from current spending and a 41 percent cut in money available for humanitarian programs."

Read the article from Feb 2011..... ROFLMAO

The Republicans/Tea Party killed the Ambassador and the other 3 Americans..... with their Spending cuts to the State Department.

Confirmed by the ABR Report, Page 3

"The recommendations in this report attempt to grapple with these issues and err on the side of increased attention to prioritization and to fuller support for people and facilities engaged in working in high risk, high threat areas. The solution requires a more serious and sustained commitment from Congress to support State Department needs, which, in total, constitute a small percentage both of the full national budget and that spent for national security. One overall conclusion in this report is that Congress must do its part to meet this challenge and provide necessary resources to the State Department to address security risks and meet mission imperatives."

American border guards can't approve foreign nations possessing weapons in America, what makes you think that the Mexican border guards can approve foreigners possessing weapons in Mexico?

Mexico is the most corrupt place in the world, a law enforcement representative in Mexico will tell you anything for a small fee.

Before Biden’s comment on budget cuts, he was asked:“Our ambassador in Paris has a Marine detachment guarding him. Shouldn’t we have a Marine detachment guarding our ambassador in Benghazi, a place where we knew that there was an Al-Qaeda cell with arms?" Ol Joe couldn't answer, as usual.

Bush re-designed intelligence from CIA, FBI and Secret service to report and coordinate all findings to Homeland Security (which he also designed) Those agencies never coodinated anything during Cliinton due to ego's. Bush made sure they did, and also made the Seals into the anti-terroist group they are now. The courier was found in Gitmo. You denying and lying. Nobama rode the Bush Harley, period. Keep 'em coming, your BS is amusing.

Come on, just say it. Bush did it.
Eric Gustafson wrote:
President Obama didn't cut funding for diplomatic post and foreign aid....
That was the Demand of the Republican/Tea Party for Spending Cuts.. and spending cuts totaling $100 Billion is what they accomplished.
The GOP has always sought to cut Foreign aid and support for overseas operations under the State Department.
The State Department Systematic Failure extends beyond the Obama Administration. That's a result of the Republicans desire for less government for generations. Career employees in management at the State Department have been conditioned to pass the buck because funding wasn't available to implement enhanced security measures.
Hillary confronted Boehner about the elimination of funding in Feb 2011, to no avail.
Those continued funding cuts to the State Department budget request ultimately lead to the murder of Ambassador Stevens and 3 other Americans.

ROFLMAO.... that Marine with his shotgun wasn't in Mexico on Official Business representing America....... ROFLMAO

What's Obama have to do with the decision that guy made?

Better planning and a respect for the law in Mexico and that probably would not have happened... as it stands he's just another criminal in a Mexican prison.

Benghazi was a temporary office. The Ambassador isn't stationed in Benghazi, he traveled there the day before to meet with the Turkish representative.

Read the Report it's all spelled out.... There was no funding to secure Benghazi and to outfit Benghazi with security enhancements and security personnel, to include Marines specifically trained for Embassy Duty.

You can not spin the fact....... the GOP Budget Cuts killed the Ambassador and left our Diplomats vulnerable to terrorist attack in high risk stations not only in Benghazi but through the middle east.

There were four embassies and consulates in the Region that were run over that night by militants and protesters starting in Egypt....

it's not redesigning intelligence, there was no funding to support the State Department initiatives and provide security for their diplomatic missions.

Systematic Failure.......Read the Report...... it's crystal clear if reading is fundamental...
