We'd better hurry up and apologize before they kill an American.

comma,

For fiscal 2013, the GOP-controlled House proposed spending $1.934 billion for the State Department’s Worldwide Security Protection program — well below the $2.15 billion requested by the Obama administration. House Republicans cut the administration’s request for embassy security funding by $128 million in fiscal 2011 and $331 million in fiscal 2012. (Negotiations with the Democrat-controlled Senate restored about $88 million of the administration’s request.) Last year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned that Republicans’ proposed cuts to her department would be “detrimental to America’s national security” — a charge Republicans rejected.

Ryan, Issa and other House Republicans voted for an amendment in 2009 to cut $1.2 billion from State operations, including funds for 300 more diplomatic security positions. Under Ryan’s budget, non-defense discretionary spending, which includes State Department funding, would be slashed nearly 20 percent in 2014, which would translate to more than $400 million in additional cuts to embassy security.

Period.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged on Wednesday that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010.

Period.

Even though in the Congressional hearings yesterday the funds issue was testified as not to be a factor in this O'Bama debacle, the O'Bots continue to run with the bullshit of funding. No shame at all for the deaths of these people. Period.

It was half about funding and half about some Youtube video that nobody ever saw.

Proposed cuts. Wouldn't we have to have a budget for an actual cut to take place?

Raw meat for debate 3.......


In a May 3, 2012, email, the State Department denied a request by a group of Special Forces assigned to protect the U.S. embassy in Libya to continue their use of a DC- 3 airplane for security operations throughout the country.

The subject line of the email, on which slain Ambassador Chris Stevens was copied, read: “Termination of Tripoli DC-3 Support.”

Four days later, on May 7, the State Department authorized the U.S. embassy in Vienna to purchase a $108,000 electric vehicle charging station for the embassy motor pool’s new Chevrolet Volts. The purchase was a part of the State Department’s “Energy Efficiency Sweep of Europe” initiative, which included hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on green program expenditures at various U.S. Embassies.

In fact, at a May 10 gala held at the U.S. embassy in Vienna, the ambassador showcased his new Volts and other green investments as part of the U.S. government’s commitment to “climate change solutions.”

The event posting on the embassy website read: “Celebrating the Greening of the Embassy.”

While the embassy in Vienna was going green, the consulate in Benghazi was getting bombed, and little was done to stop it.

What the article doesn't list is all the people who would have died from smog if we hadn't switched to Volts.

I think we're at the "yelling punctuation" part of the campaign, now. I don't yet know if this is in any way related to the Sesame Street offensive.

Correct, there were no cuts because there was never a budget to cut. That is why we have these repeating spending solutions. Harry Reid will not even allow a vote on a budget for the last three years. This way the Dems can politically assault the Repubs on budget cuts without ever really decreasing spending.

Then there are some Obots who try and say these proposed cuts to a budget that never existed is the reason the Ambassador died. When all along I thought he died because a bunch of family men were angered because of a video they never saw.
