Not a big fan of the spending more money thing...
Spend money on that bill from where?
the government is broke.
He's on roll lately, good stuff.
His budget cuts a lot of stuff elsewhere no doubt to pay for security
Yeah..I wished Rand hadn't made the "worst since 9-11" comparison. He definitely had to back track on that with Wolf.

As for the appropriation remarks. The appropriation will probably come out of the DOD's current budget. And frankly aslong as we have diplomats overseas we're responsible for their safety. This is spending we shouldn't be cutting; the issue is the military budget.
If I try to be a pretty good libertarian I get attacked by the left, by the right, and by the libertarians. - Rand Paul
Violence will not save us.
Let us love one another, for love is from God.
Additionally, arguing for military defense of these consulates and embassies is arguing for empire and overseas bases. Far from non-interventionism, this is an endorsement of our foreign policy.

There never are any reports about Chinese,Japanese,Brazilian embassies being burned down and that is because they mind their own business.
Not to mention that USA embassies in almost every country are just a screen for the CIA,if you add marines to them as well they are completely legitimate targets.

Obsessing about Benghazi didn't exactly lead Romney & the GOP into the White House. Such things may have traction in the over 60 GOP crowd, which will be over 64 in 2016, but not too many other places.
Romney didn't obsess over Benghazi. He pushed one little thing about it when under fire in the debate and failed. It was another example of Romney trying to "run to the middle."

Whoa whoa. I want to hear about budget cuts elsewhere before I want to hear about increasing billions for security for CIA black sites.
Note to Rand: Don't talk about 9/11 ever. Learn from Debra Medina's path on this. Wolf appeared to be setting you up for a later "truther" interview. And for god sake don't talk about increasing budgets for any department unless your answer starts with cuts elsewhere. Talk about where you will cut FIRST. Then talk about where you think money can be better spent. /sigh

I have many friends in the libertarian movement who look down on those of us who get involved in political activity,
he acknowledged, but "eventually, if you want to bring about changes what you have to do is participate in political
action. -- Ron Paul
"We do have some differences and our approaches will be different, but that makes him his own person. I mean why should he [Rand] be a clone and do everything and think just exactly as I have. I think it's an opportunity to be independent minded. We are about 99% the same on issues." "People Try To Drive Wedges Between Rand And Me." --Ron Paul

2) He questioned why our aircraft carriers are not near the places our troops are stationed on the ground in case they need assistance in cases like Benghazi
