    for the security request denials.  

    but also keep in mind that even if the requests were fulfilled, it would not have made a difference.

      The question is not who is responsible for this particular tragedy.

      The entire issue is, for whom should we vote, whom do we trust to take seriously the responsibility for protecting our diplomats and other assets overseas.

      Obama's personal, direct failure to protect this ambassador from this attack is offered as proof that he and all Dems are weak, does not understand this threat.

      It is goddam so relevant, that this comes from the mouths of the party that so blithely defunds such security, because freedom and tax cuts.

      •  responsiblity is a question (0+ / 0-)

        whether you like it or not. you're just spinning.

        •  And the defunding (0+ / 0-)

          is a perfectly appropriate response.

          The question is not whether the O team has responsibility.

          The question is which party is better at foreign policy.  which party deserves to hold power.  Who is really serious about these concerns, and who only cares about winning elections and then using power to pursue other priorities.

          It's not spin.  It's not a deflection, it's a fair and pertinent comparison.
