Barbara Boxer: ‘The Benghazi Scandal’ ‘Starts With Republicans’ Who Cut Funding For Embassy Security
mediaite.com ^ | 5/14/13 | Noah Rothman

Posted on 05/14/2013 8:04:30 AM PDT by Justaham

In a speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said that Republicans in Congress should look into a mirror when asking why the attack on an American consulate in Benghazi was as deadly as it was. She said that House Republicans who voted to cut security funding for overseas embassies are directly responsible for the lack of security personnel at that outpost. Boxer’s claim is contradicted by testimony delivered before a Congressional Oversight Committee hearing last week.

Shouldn't she have been hung about 7 times for treason?

If she hates America that much, she should have Dennis Rodman take he to his buddy Kim Dung's palace and drop her off there

So the funding cut made the administration hire the enemy to guard the embassy, Ms Boxers? Right.

Barbara Boxer has the amazing talent of making Dianne Feinstein look intelligent and sensible by comparison.

Capo Boxer can be reached at 202-224-3121 for comments on the slaughter in Benghazi. Ask for Boxer (the Capo, IMO) when calling the Switchboard.

The low information democrats will slurp this up and embarrass themselves when confronted by someone knowledgeable.

Usually, though, they don’t let themselves get in a situation where their talking points are challenged.

The ‘consulate’ that burned was just a safehouse, that came with an actual local landlord. (Imagine that landlord waking up to the news)

Sorry, bitch, let’s about the scare at Tripoli that same day, which let to communications and computer equipment being destroyed.

She is still spouting Democrat talking points. She has no mind of her own. She is a Borg.

The money was there, but Obama spent it on Green Energy Companies who went bankrupt.

You see Babs you stupid runt. It’s like saying I couldn’t buy ammo for my pistol which I use for protection, because I bought a fifth of Jack Daniels.

It isn’t the fault of Republicans, it is the fault of Obama’s misplaced priorities and spending the money on crap instead of spending it where it is needed.

Seems sometime ago, someone from the budgets office was asked if security funds were too low to provide more personnel and the answer was a resounding “NO”! The democrats are very famous for the lying ability.

Even if the funding were cut the budget that cut them never was passed. Shameless, really

She must have been taking her nap while the hearings were taking place and testimony given that money was not an issue.

Good grief. Even Hitlary isn't using this lie Boxer of Rocks. Embassay security is the responsibility of the State Department. Benghazi happened on September 11, 2012. "Sequestration", which was 0bama's plan (remember?) didn't begin until 2013.

AND, remember 0bama's debate performance (October 22, 2012) regarding HIS 'Sequester' ... which he also said wouldn't happen ....

Bob Woodward: Obama 'mistaken' on sequester ... What the President said is not correct.

NO ONE was blaming Embassay security funding. Boxer o rocks ... EPIC FAIL.

I vaguely remember a story about the French Embassy getting a fleet of new cars at the same time Benghazi was denied funds for security.

I don’t associate much with low intelligence democrats,
but I do know some that are reasonably intelligent,
but just ignore any realities that damage their worldview.

We should check the official government budget that was passed to run the federal budget.

Let’s see what that said we were suppose to spend.

What? We haven’t passed one? Since when? I thought it was law the the government had to pass and publish a budget showing how our tax dollars would be spent.

Just how much funding is needed to provide security for a complex of warehouses selling shoulder fired missiles, RPG's, machine guns, 50 cal rifles, anti-tank mines, and free toasters, in the middle if violent Islam Jihadville?

Maybe about 4,000 marines and a close support air wing?

Kinda tipping yer hand huh?

You’re right B and therefore the ideologue leftist hacks are not low or of no intelligence. The vast moronic hordes of the dems are low information voters because they are low on intelligence—willful or just plain ignorant. So that was my point and just having a little fun with words.
