thismomentinblackhistory: Why is this?
GORDON: Yeah, because we know Obama never spends money that he doesn't have Congress doesn't authorize.
Summercat: What the fark. Seriously.
Via Infinito: Being in Congress must be really awesome.As Jon Stewart once said, "you get the fun of breaking shiat and the joy of complaining the shiat you just broke doesn't work."
Lt. Cheese Weasel: CygnusDarius: And yet, Romney has a chance of winning./Americans//You need to up your anteTo what my dear friend? Your own countries issues make ours seem like low level noise sometimes. Why don't you up your ante and get a government that isn't bought by drug cartels?
SquiggsIN: Anyone dumb enough to vote for Democrats or Republicans at this point should be shot.They are both fine with taking public money to enrich the elite regardless of which party they are donating to. It's a joke that people think they are mutually exclusive. They agree on turning public wealth (taxes) into private wealth (kickbacks to their richest donors). They agree on policing the public and diminishing civil liberties under the guise of national security.D and R are like 2 ends of a teeter totter. the people furthest from the center scream the loudest and jump up and down just to keep the majority of people near the middle off balance and confused. And it works for all you sheep who think either party has your best interests in mind.
James F. Campbell: thismomentinblackhistory: James F. Campbell: Nobody cares. The Republicans could vote to fund live kitten eating, and the only ones who will take flak for it are the Democrats. The Republicans can say or do anything -- anything -- and it won't affect them.Why is this?Because people will say to the Democrats, "Why didn't you stop them?!" And the Democrats will get the blame.

muck4doo: Democrat thinking:Dems: We got 100 billion this year for this program. We now want 200 Billion.Reps: No. We will give you 120 billionDems: OMFG! They cut the program by 80 billion dollars! That's 40%! Republicans cut the program by 40%! OMFG!!!!Democrats have been playing that game for decades. As they long as they have enough tards to swallow the crap they will keep it going.
intelligent comment below: SquiggsIN: Again, R's and D's agree on some things. like growing gov, oppressing liberties, and ignoring whichever parts of the constitution are inconvenient at the time. They have people so wound up on the unsolvable issues that no one seems to notice. Abortion will never have consensus, gay rights will never have consensus, etc... we focus on these because the media is paid to keep up the firestorm to distract us from the areas in which R and D are colluding to rob the public and enrich themselves while treating citizens as a doormat or worse. Our incarceration rate is through the roof and we can't pay our own bills. We have issues that could be solved if we'd start focusing on problems that MIGHT be able to be solved.No, both sides are not equally bad. Stop pretending that
Business as usual in GOPville / Teabagistan
udhq: So clear this one up: How exactly was it politically beneficial for Obama to put out the "protest" line? It seems that, given that the narrative was "Obama is apologizing for freedom of speech", the terror attack would have been preferable.
basham: ridiculous non sequiturs?
Lt. Cheese Weasel: udhq: Even if Obama did everything you claim, the only person who botched Benghazi worse than him was Romney. That's a fact.Mitt Romney is a private citizen. You do know that, right?
Lt. Cheese Weasel: I'm counting on it. Facts are clear. Truth wills out. He went to Vegas while our Ambassador and 3 others were being murdered and our consulate was over run. They were warned. They ignored it. This is Obama's 'My Pet Goat.' Reap what you sow. Spin it 100x, won't matter. The Swing states already have moved. The only demographic left supporting this brainless boob will be blacks on the government tit in Detroit and Chicago before the election gets here. Hurry November.
GoSlash27: Did the Republicans vote to cut State Department funding?Yup.Did that *in any way* affect the outcome of the Benghazi consulate's request for additional security?Nope./This thread is shameful
rdondelinger: while SquiggsIN's "fresh perspective" is certainly not fresh as in new, it is most assuredly an oft-overlooked and under-appreciated viewpoint held by individual Farkers such as SquiggsIN and myself.
GORDON: Eh, who cares. The President himself said the American deaths in the embassy were just "speed bumps."Have you heard about Big Bird? Oh man, Romney is terrible.
Shaggy_C: MyRandomName: Seeing as State Department funding is up nearly 40% since 2009....2012 - 53.4 Billion2009 - 38.3 BillionI'm sure the extra 1.5 billion they requested would have saved Stevens.So this is all Obama's fault
MFAWG: ecl: Mrtraveler01: Lando Lincoln: GoSlash27: Did the Republicans vote to cut State Department funding?Yup.Did that *in any way* affect the outcome of the Benghazi consulate's request for additional security?Nope./This thread is shamefulWould extra security have stopped guys with rocket launchers?Nope.Probably not.But I will say, even though this seems like a legitimate complaint, it's hard to take the GOP seriously over it.They've cried wolf too many damn times that it's hard to take them seriously when they do have a legitimate complaint. That being said, how much more security do the Republicans think was needed to prevent something like this from happening?Why don't the embassies have tanks?There is no embassy in BenGahzi.

FunkOut: CygnusDarius: And yet, Romney has a chance of winning./Americans//You need to up your anteIf he does win, he's sacrificing the whole country to Molech.
ecl: BravadoGT: This would be relevant if the reason for the lack of security was a staff or resource shortage due to funding. But it had nothing to do with that. Rather--it was because the gatekeeper for such appeals (Deputy Assistant Secretary for International Programs Charlene Lamb, and backed by her superiors assistant secretary of State for diplomatic security Eric Boswell and the principal deputy assistant secretary for diplomatic security and director of the Diplomatic Security Service Scott P. Bultrowic) wanted to keep the U.S. security presence "artificially low," to promote the idea that Libya was stabilizing and safer.Pretty lame attempt to try and dump this mess in the GOP's lap...Those three have alot of credentials and aren't all D's or R's. People need to stop trying to toss the blame around. That includes you BravoGT.
Satanic_Hamster: GoSlash27: Did the Republicans vote to cut State Department funding?Yup.Did that *in any way* affect the outcome of the Benghazi consulate's request for additional security?Nope./This thread is shamefulSome times we have to protect our diplomatic missions with the security guards we have and not the ones we want.
ifarkthereforiam: Hey folks, the 'big lie' strategy works. Why do you think the republicans keep doing it?/same goes for whining about being persecuted by the liberal press.
James F. Campbell: Nobody cares. The Republicans could vote to fund live kitten eating, and the only ones who will take flak for it are the Democrats. The Republicans can say or do anything -- anything -- and it won't affect them.
Richard Saunders: Government.As an American voter, whachoo gonna do?/i'm sick of the games
Mrbogey: So no one cares that specific security requests, which Republicans have no say in, were turned down for Libya? No one upset that the whole start of the attack was lied about by this administration?
Summoner101: Well at least we're all still comfortable making political hay out of American deaths when it's convenient to our interests.
sheep snorter: Nov 19 2012: Watch as all these special particular certain loudmouth republicans(domestic terrorists) get rounded up and given a proper burial at deep sea with their hero Osama Bin Laden. As per U.S. anti-terrorism laws./slug to the face optional(slithering slimer is so kinky)//Please sign the petition to restore the 'truth in newscast laws'.
