Congressman Randy Neugebauer Says Obama Administration Needs to Take Lybia Attacks Seriously [AUDIO]
On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked with Tom Collins and Laura Mac about the latest going on in Washington.
The attack on the U.S. Embassy in Lybia is still a hot button issue, as well as the lack of a definitive response from the Obama administration. Neugebauer said that the administration's story is changing all the time, and that it should treated as a serious issue, not just some political bullet point.
"This [issue] is a piece of our national security puzzle, and making sure that people that are representing us in these other countries are safe. But more importantly, what was going on in the intelligence community? Did the administration ignore warning form the intelligence community, and not respond to it appropriately? These are all issues that the American people want to know...and if people didn't do their jobs, there should be consequences to that."
Neugerbauer went on to chastise the administration for it's poor response and for blaming a YouTube video for the attack. He said it was unbelievable for the Obama administration to not be on high alert the week of 9/11, and there there was no reason security should not have been increased.
Neugebauer also gave his thoughts on Mitt Romney's new 4-point agriculture plan. According to Negebauer, the plan will provide for such things as energy independence and solid tax and trade policies, things that farmers have been asking for for quite some time. Neugebauer also gave us the latest on the affirmative action case about the University of Texas denying a girl admission to the university just because she was white.
