GOP Busted On Benghazi: Voted For MASSIVE Embassy Security Cuts Starting in 2011
From REVERB PRESS October 26, 2015

GOP COMPLAINING ABOUT BENGHAZI SECURITY ISSUES DESPITE PREVIOUSLY DEMANDING EMBASSY SECURITY CUTS
It looks like the GOP’s tendency towards history revisionism is continuing to bite the party in its collective ass.
The Hillpublished an article in 2012 showing exactly where Republicans in the House of Representatives stood on security measures for foreign embassies like the one in Benghazi.

THE REST OF US?: REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES OUGHT TO BE ASHAMED

Last night’s Republican debate was not quite as crazy exciting as the last one (it was two hours long rather than three thanks to Donald Trump, according the Donald Trump) when the ten candidates seemed bent on turning that debate into a “Call of Duty: Black Op’s” video game knockoff.  No.  Last night’s debate seemed to devolve into confusing chaos with both candidates and moderators talking over one another and interrupting each other in a cross fire of whining, blame and cross bitching. Who’s to blame?  Well according to the Republican candidates, the liberal, biased mainstream media.   No big surprise here.  Rush Limbaugh blames the mainstream – “lamestream,” in his cutesy terminology - media for everything from Climate Change to herpes pretty much every single day.
