Rubio opposes independent investigation of Benghazi

Are they all corrupt and rotten?
The GOP’s shining prince, Marco Rubio of Florida, who was elected to the U.S. Senate only two years ago, says he opposes an independent investigation into the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which took the lives of four Americans, including that of Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

Javier Manjarres reports for Florida’s The Shark Tank, Nov. 26, 2012, that Rubio was the headliner at a rally for Israel held at a South Florida Jewish Community School last weekend, where he reiterated his support for America’s closest ally in the Middle East and took a few questions from the media as he exited the event.

Rubio expressed his deep concerns about the lack of security measures that the U.S. government was responsible for at its consulate in Benghazi, Libya which led to the murder of four Americans. He said:

“My number one concern about the Benghazi situation is that knowing it was a very dangerous place that was growing even more dangerous, the United States did not supply sufficient security for that consulate in Benghazi, and as a result, four brave Americans lost their lives.  We need to make sure how that happened, so that it never happens again.”

When asked whether an independent investigation was warranted to get to the bottom of what really happened both in the run up to the attack on the consulate and its aftermath, Rubio maintained that an independent investigation was not necessary.
Rubio, who sits on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and is privy to intelligence briefings, insisted that Congress was more than capable of conducting an investigation into the matter:

“I don’t think it has to be independent (investigation) the bottom line is that, the Congress is fully capable, I am on the intelligence committee, I am on the Foreign Relations committee in the Senate, I think that those committees are fully capable of investigating why there was not sufficient security provided to the personnel in Benghazi, and how that could’ve been prevented.”

One thing you’ve got to admit is that Rubio sure is a fast learner. In two years, he has already learned to become a consummate member of the politics-as-usual old boys’ network.

The U.S. senator whom Obama contemptuously calls “a boy”

At the Republican National Convention last night, son of humble Cuban immigrants Marco Rubio, 41, newly elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, was given the distinct honor of introducing former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney as the GOP’s 2012 nominee to the presidency of the United States of America.

Tears were streaming down my face as Rubio described and paid homage to his hardworking blue-collar parents and their belief that America held the promise of a better life for their children. I, too, am an immigrant and a naturalized U.S. citizen who came to this country with not a penny. I, too, worked in menial jobs to put myself through college — washing dishes, waitressing in a tenderloin restaurant, selling Avon door-to-door, working in the fast food A&W. I, too, with a Ph.D. and a Full Professorship (emerita), am a living testimony to the American dream.

If you didn’t watch Rubio’s speech, here’s your chance! As you watch and listen to Rubio, ask yourself this question:

Does Marco Rubio look and behave like “a boy” to you?

I’ll explain the question below the video.

So, did you watch Rubio’s speech?

Do you think this impressive, articulate, and intelligent man is “a boy”?

But that’s exactly what Barack Obama calls Marco Rubio.

Glenn Thrust writes for Politico, Aug. 20, 2012, that Obama’s Last Stand, an e-book published last Monday in a collaboration between Politico and Random House, reports that Obama has a trait that has never been revealed to the American people. The book is the culmination of a two-month reporting project that included interviews with two dozen current and former members of Obama’s team

In Thrust’s words, Obama has a “trash-talking competitiveness, a trait that has defined him since his days on the court as a basketball-obsessed teenager in Hawaii.”

According to the e-book, one night last February, Obama spotted a woman he knew was close to Sen. Marco Rubio in a Florida hotel lobby. This is what Obama, a sitting President of the United States, said to the woman:

“Is your boy going to go for [vice president]?”

The woman declined to answer.

Well,” Obama said, chuckling, according to a person who witnessed the encounter:

“Tell your boy to watch it. He might get his ass kicked.”

Born in 1961, Obama is 51 years old. Marco Rubio was born in 1971 and at age 41 is 10 years younger — hardly “a boy”. If anyone were to call Obama “a boy,” the cries of “RAAAAACISM” would be deafening.

Now you know why I call him a Piece of Sh*t.

Let the GOP Know Who’s Your Choice for 2012

No RINOs !!!!!!!!!!!

Let the Republican Party know whom you want to run for the presidency in 2012. Vote in this poll.

It’s a quick poll, with 10-11 questions.

One of the potential candidates about whom I know very little is Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty, who recently announced his candidacy to be the GOP’s 2012 presidential nominee. So I looked him up on Wikipedia. You, too, can find out more about Pawlenty by going HERE.

Pawlenty’s strong suit (in contrast to Herman Cain and Allen West) is that he has executive experience, being in his second term as governor. He also appears to be a social and fiscal conservative. In the end, however, I decided against him because of two main reasons:

  1. Pawlenty was so much a RINO John McCain supporter that he served as a national cochair of McCain’s presidential exploratory committee in 2007, which led to Pawlenty becoming cochairman of McCain’s presidential campaign in 2008.
  2. A 2011 white paper by the Club for Growth, analyzing Pawlenty as a presidential candidate, found his political stance difficult to identify. The group praised him for reduced growth in spending and taxation, but found that he “has some simply inexcusable tax hikes in his record” and questioned his support of proposals such as “mandatory vegetable oil in gasoline, cap and trade, and a statewide smoking ban.” Chris Edwards, a director at the libertarian thinktank, Cato Institute, speculated that Pawlenty’s rightward tack in his second term was related to his impending presidential run.

Go vote for your choice to be the GOP’s nominee in 2012! CLICK HERE.

Do it now, because the poll ends on Wednesday, June 15, 2011.

H/t beloved fellow Tina.
