Obama (blame game) camp: Ryan budget would have cut embassy security

Obama camp: Ryan budget would have cut embassy security
By Julian Pecquet - 10/07/12 05:09 PM ET



Democrats are hitting Mitt Romney over the House GOP budget's potential cuts to embassy security as the Republican candidate and his allies on Capitol Hill seek to make inadequate protection in Libya a campaign issue.



Romney's running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), put forward a budget blueprint this year that would have cut non-defense discretionary spending by 19 percent by 2014. While the blueprint doesn't specify cuts to embassy security, applying that figure across-the-board would yield a $300 million reduction in State Department funding for the protection, construction and maintenance of U.S. embassies around the world.



"The president certainly doesn’t need lectures on securing our facilities overseas from Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, who’ve proposed slashing funding for our diplomatic and embassy security by $298 million dollars" just in 2014 alone, an Obama campaign official told The Hill.



"The cuts to embassy security in the Romney-Ryan budget would amount to $170 million more than even under sequestration. Gov. Romney talks a lot about projecting American power overseas, but it’s unclear how he would do that under the budget he’s endorsed that cuts funding for critical State Department programs and security,” the official added.



Back in March, Jeffrey Zients, the acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, said that “since the House refused to specify what would be cut, we consider the impacts if the cuts are distributed equally across the board.”



The Romney campaign counters that since the Ryan budget didn't specifically recommend cuts to embassy security, it's unfair to draw the conclusion that Republicans would have slashed funding. The campaign says there was no reference made to cutting embassy security because there were no assumed cuts to embassy security.



"The only candidate who has proposed cuts to our embassy security is President Obama," said a Romney campaign official, in reference to the president signing sequestration into law.



But the Ryan budget doesn't exempt embassy security from cuts, either.



The Obama campaign official said House Republicans have left a $900 billion gap in terms of where their cuts would come from over the next decade. Republicans have a responsibility to spell that out, the official said, and until they do Democrats will operate under the assumption that they will be applied across the board.



Romney has in the past endorsed Ryan's budget while seeking to portray himself as a champion of American power abroad. The Republican candidate has said he's “very supportive” of Ryan's budget blueprint and said earlier this year that it would be “marvelous” if the Democratic-controlled Senate passed it, which didn't happen.



But since picking the House Budget Committee chairman as his running mate, his campaign has insisted the GOP ticket will run on Romney’s budget proposals and not necessarily Ryan’s.



Romney has made the assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya last month a centerpiece of his attacks on the Obama administration’s foreign policy. Romney and congressional Republicans have questioned whether the compound received adequate security that could have prevented the deaths of the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans there.



Romney is expected to attack Obama on Libya during a foreign policy speech Monday while images of the burning Benghazi consulate are still fresh on voters' mind. And House Oversight panel chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is holding a hearing on embassy protection Wednesday morning after several whistleblowers complained that the State Department rejected requests for beefed up security.



Among the politically charged evidence already made public ahead of the hearing is a State Department email from May 2012 rejecting the continued use of a DC-3 airplane by Special Forces troops assigned to protect embassy staff in Libya; they were told to use Libyan flights instead to get around the country after commercial flights were reestablished. It's not clear that providing the plane would have made any difference, especially since the security detail left the country in August.



Democrats counter that those kinds of hard choices would only be tougher under Ryan's budget, which Issa himself supported along with all but 10 House Republicans.



Throughout the campaign, Romney has sought to pin the blame on Obama for deep defense spending cuts that are slated to take effect next year if lawmakers fail to find other ways to cut the deficit.



Democrats hope to undermine that hawkish image by raising doubts about his running mate’s budget proposal.



Under so-called sequestration, which Ryan and many other Republicans voted for, funding for diplomatic and consular programs would be cut by about $1 billion next year, according to a Sept. 14 analysis by the White House budget office. That includes a $129 million cut to the “Embassy Security, Construction, and Maintenance” budget category and another $2 million cut to the “Protection of Foreign Missions and Officials” category, for a total of $131 million. The figure is expected to be roughly the same for 2014, because the sequestration cuts remain at roughly the same level throughout the decade.



Ryan, by contrast, phases in the cuts. His budget called for a 19 percent across-the-board cut to non-defense discretionary spending in 2014, according to Zients, much deeper than the 8.2 percent cut under sequestration. Assuming an across-the-board distribution of the cuts, his proposal would have slashed the first category by $298 million and the second by $5 million, for a total of $303 million – $172 million than the cut under sequestration.

Obama blames economic contraction on ‘bad decisions’
The Hill ^ | 2/02/13 | Keith Laing
Posted on February 2, 2013 8:58:28 AM EST by Libloather

President Obama blamed the recent contraction of the U.S. economy on “bad decisions in Washington” in his weekly address.

The national economy shrank by 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012, according to figures released this week by the Commerce Department. The contraction was an unexpected reversal of months of modest economic growth since the end of the recession in mid-2009.

Obama said in his address that the dip was the fault of “bad decisions” being made in Washington.

“We began this year with economists and business leaders saying that we are poised to grow in 2013,” he said. “But this week, we also received the first estimate of America’s economic growth over the last few months. And it reminded us that bad decisions in Washington can get in the way of our economic progress.”

Obama said there were “real signs of progress” in the 2013 economic outlook, citing increases in home prices and car sales.

But he said the unexpected economic contraction showed the wisdom of his “balanced” approached to budget negotiations with Congress.

“We all agree that it’s critical to cut unnecessary spending,” Obama said. “But we can’t just cut our way to prosperity. It hasn’t worked in the past, and it won’t work today. It could slow down our recovery. It could weaken our economy. And it could cost us jobs – now, and in the future."

Obama said if Congress follows his lead on the economic decisions, “2013 can be a year of solid growth, more jobs, and higher wages.

“But that will only happen if we put a stop to self-inflicted wounds in Washington,” he warned.

“Everyone in Washington needs to focus not on politics but on what’s right for the country; on what’s right for you and your families,” Obama continued. “That’s how we’ll get our economy growing faster. That’s how we’ll strengthen our middle class. And that’s how we’ll build a country that rewards the effort and determination of every single American.”

The White House and the Department of Homeland Security were unaware of Immigration Customs and Enforcement's decision to release detainees until the agency announced it, administration officials said Wednesday.
 
"This was a decision made by career officials at ICE without any input from the White House, as a result of fiscal uncertainty over the continuing resolution, as well as possible sequestration," White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday.
 
Personnel at Department of Homeland Security headquarters in Washington were also unaware of the decision until the announcement was made, a department official told POLITICO.
 
(WATCH: Janet Napolitano: Sequestration would threaten nation's security)
 
ICE announced Tuesday that it has released several hundred undocumented immigrants in recent weeks as funding cuts loom. The detainees will instead be monitored in less expensive ways, the agency said.
 
Carney described those released as "low-risk, non-criminal detainees," but several Republican members of Congress have spoken out against the releases.
 
(Also on POLITICO: Blogs decry illegal immigrant release)
 
“It’s very hard for me to believe that they can’t find cuts elsewhere in their agency,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told CBS News on Tuesday. “I frankly think this is outrageous…I can’t believe that they can’t find the kind of savings they need out of that department short of letting criminals go free.”
 
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, on Wednesday asked ICE for details of the agency's decision. "This decision reflects the lack of resource prioritization," he wrote to ICE Director John Morton, "and is indicative of the Department [of Homeland Security]’s weak stance on national security."

Obama Blames Congress for Not Closing Gitmo



 April 30, 2013

(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama declared again his commitment to close the terrorist prison in Guantanamo Bay, a facility he signed an executive order to close within a year in January 2009.
 
“It needs to be closed,” Obama said. “Now Congress determined that they would not let us close it and despite the fact that there are a number of the folks who are currently in Guantanamo who the courts have said could be returned to their country of origin or potentially a third country. I'm going to go back at this.
 
“I've asked my team to review everything that's currently being done in Guantanamo, everything that we can do administratively, and I'm going to re-engage with Congress to try to make the case that this is not something that's in the best interests of the American people,” he added.
 






During a presidential news conference Tuesday, a reporter asked, “Mr. President, as you're probably aware, there's a growing hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay, among prisoners there. Is it any surprise, really, that they would prefer death rather than have no end in sight to their confinement?”
 
Obama responded, “Well, it is not a surprise to me that we've got problems in Guantanamo, which is why, when I was campaigning in 2007 and 2008 and when I was elected in 2008, I said we need to close Guantanamo.”
 
“I think it is critical for us to understand that Guantanamo is not necessary to keep America safe,” Obama said. “It is expensive. It is inefficient. It hurts us in terms of our international standing. It lessens cooperation with our allies on counterterrorism efforts. It is a recruitment tool for extremists.”
 
The president added that the prison is “not sustainable.”
 
“We're going to continue to keep over a hundred individuals in a no man's land in perpetuity, even at a time when we've wound down the war in Iraq, we're winding down the war in Afghanistan, we're having success defeating al-Qaida core, we've kept the pressure up on all these transnational terrorist networks, when we've transferred detention authority in Afghanistan – the idea that we would still maintain forever a group of individuals who have not been tried – that is contrary to who we are, it is contrary to our interests, and it needs to stop.”
 
With regards to the terror suspects on a hunger strike, Obama said, “I don't want these individuals to die. Obviously, the Pentagon is trying to manage the situation as best as they can, but I think all of us should reflect on why exactly are we doing this.”
 
He further said these prisoners can be housed in the United States.

Obama, campaigning again, blames D.C. mess on pols campaigning too much


By Andrew Malcolm
Posted 09:06 AM ET




An amazing scene in Boston yesterday.

Barack Obama returned to the city of one of his biggest triumphs (his 2004 Democrat convention speech) and one of his worst political spankings (the 2010 repudiation by Massachusetts Senate voters of his candidate).

Those were tough days for the ex-state legislator, you may remember. Virginia voters had just rejected Obama's choice for governor. New Jersey voters had just rejected Obama's choice for governor.

Both setbacks were indicators of the rising tide of dissatisfaction over Obama's preoccupation with ObamaCare when what voters really wanted was Joe Biden's three-letter word, "J-O-B-S."

Americans are still waiting for Obama's employment extravaganza. But meantime later in 2010, they turned the House over to Republicans in an historic surge. Obama now says his big goal is to get that speaker's gavel back in the more compliant hands of Nancy Pelosi.

In January, 2010, Massachusetts voters were filling Ted Kennedy's Senate seat, a seat occupied by Democrat bottoms since 1952. As in the middle of last century. Nine years before Obama was born you-know-where.

Hours before polls opened, Obama went up to Boston to campaign for and with Democrat Martha Coakley, as he'd done with his chosen ones in New Jersey and Virginia. Coakley had been slipping in the polls. And the White House wanted to give her one last push across the finish line.

Bay State Democrats responded to the president's special, special-election attention by electing lowly state legislator Scott Brown. Oh, look! He was a Republican.

Brown opted out last year and some Native American woman got in. Then this year Obama needed a new secretary of State to not rescue any Americans abroad surrounded by terrorists. He picked Sen. John Kerry, who represented Massachusetts, although he's moored his yacht in Rhode Island to save on property taxes.

Kerry's departure set up the current contest, a special June 25 election between long-time liberal Democrat Rep. Ed Markey, who's never missed a photo op with a PBS character, and Gabriel Gomez, a former fighter pilot and Navy SEAL turned businessman with his moderate GOP brand and Hispanic heritage. (Scroll to the bottom for a C-SPAN video of the June 5 Gomez-Markey debate.)

Markey has 36 years of Washington maneuvering to Gomez' none. But given the notorious mess in D.C. and Congress' historically low approval, combined with Obama's compounding scandals, Markey's really long tenure on Capitol Hill may not be the best advertisement for a return there.

Markey has been slipping in the polls and the White House wanted to give him one last push across the finish line. So, there they were on-stage Thursday, the guy with 18 House terms and the one with a fraction of a Senate term.

Here are some of the amazing things Obama came out with and their context:

"What’s holding us back right now is inaction in Washington, gridlock in Washington--too many folks in Washington who are putting the next election ahead of the next generation."

So, who is it who's out campaigning for the next election in Boston and Miami on the same day? And who is it who's back in Washington working on the problems?

"I want you to know I've run my last campaign." Really? So, all these fundraising trips on Air Force One are for last year's election? Or, in reality, the next elections in 2014?

According to the president, he awakens every day and asks himself: "How do I make America a magnet for good jobs?" He's been in office now for 1,604 wake-up calls. Where's the beef?

The 44th president said other familiar stuff--the old infrastructure spending line, educating children better, keeping every child safe from gun violence like his hometown isn't. Then, before flying down to Miami for more fundraisers, Obama claimed:

"My only concern is making sure that we advance the interests of the broadest number of Americans and we leave our children a stronger, safer, more prosperous country."

Another concern could be Obama's approval rating. It's seriously sagging beneath the weight of his administration's cascading scandals, which he has yet to explain beyond the infamous Sgt. Schultz line: I know nothing. The latest poll gives Obama only a 44% approval, down from 49% in February, with a disapproval rate of 50%, up from 45%.

The good news for Ed Markey is he's got the real old pro, Bill Clinton, coming in as the campaign closer Saturday. The 42d president may actually help the Senate candidate.
