Holocaust references, pearl harbor references, bloodbending, and murder-suicide is fine for a kids show, but add airbenders having this badass ability and you've gone too far.

So when an air bender fights a fire bender he can just bend all the oxygen from a firebenders hand when he's about to attack so he cant bend. Neat.

You're right about that but in a physical reality, airbending would be the power to control the atmospheric of your surroundings, lungs would be easy, blood impossible. It has nothing to do with oxygen.

In most instances, blood bending is impossible without the aid of a once a month occurrence. Even then, only fairly high level benders can achieve this. Amon's family is obviously an outlier. The human body is roughly 60% water (the 70% you usually hear about is just your brain). Your average pair of lungs only hold 6 liters of air. Oxygen in the bloodstream is really more part of the liquid, and contains nearly no air volume. If there actually was bubbles in the blood stream, you'd suffer from acute pain every second of the day - as that's essentially what the bends (decompression sickness) is. Larger bubbles would just stop your heart. In the end, there's just far too little air in your body for a bender to gain any real control, especially considering how hard it is to bend the much more plentiful water content. As for pulling the air from your lungs, I don't think I've ever seen an airbender 'pull' air, it seems that their technique revolves around pushing it. It would be much simpler to generate high enough winds around their target in order to create a near vacuum. Then they'd simply suffocate.

Of course, the same would go for earthbenders. The only thing that comes close to firebending domain in the human body would be the electrical impulses in your brain/spine/muscles. But again, they cannot 'pull' electricity, only discharge it.

Fire bending - Lighting    
Water bending - Blood bending    
Earth  bending - Metal bending   
Air bending - ? ? ? ? ?   
   
My guess is that, a well trained air bender could probably understand it so deeply that he could master the way air moves into waves, sound waves, which would be badass if the air nomads could sound bend, sonic attack all around, bam bam bam watchin' ****** drop.   
   
But seriously maybe they can, just that there are only 4 remaining air benders in the world and that's why the techniques have not been acquired/created yet. By that logic you would also guess that with even more skill they could light bend, but i find that way too impossible    
   
Sorry if my english isn't the best, so be gentle FJ ...   be gentle.

Also to actually answer the question I think it would be redundant and boring if air benders could bend too, plus I don't think they could bend that much if the only controlled the air particles in the blood. In the other hand they did could maybe remove the air from the lung or the other way around, make them have way too much air and blow them the **** up.

They can't connect to the spirit world, they just meditate deeply, Avatars who master air bending CAN connect to the spirit world easier than if they hadn't, but no, we are talking about certain kinds of bending, not their life styles.

the spiritual side of the avatar is about the harmony of all four elements, Aang connected to the spiritual part of being the avatar because he learned about that harmony from the monks as a child and was very spiritual himself, while Korra didn't fully understand until she mastered all four elements. my point is that all bending types are equally spiritual, it just seems like air bending is more so because the monks are, and because Aang was, more spiritual than other benders.

I believe that air benders don't get anything else because in theory a master air bender could damn near mimic the avatar. In the right situations of course. You could use air to move rocks or water and used correctly they could use air to push fire towards others. Just  a thought.

If we want to get specific:

Waterbenders could instantaneously lyse every cell in an opponent's body, while pulling the water out of them, much like Hama did with the plants. This would also give them more ammunition for further bending. At the same time, they could also freeze all the water in a human body, instantly killing the individual, while rupturing pretty much any cell in their body. Also, if they can extract heat from water, we can only assume they can add it as well, leading to steam-bendng. If you've never gotten a steam-induced burn before, let me assure you, it hurts a lot worse than a "regular" fire or hot-metal caused one.

Airbenders could pull the oxygen out of someone's lungs, or create a vacuum around their enemies, making for a slow, cruel kill.

Firebenders could instantaneously ignite or electrocute their foes. And, seeing how they can pull heat out of objects (i.e. when they extinguish fires, or extracted heat from lava, which isn't even their element), they could theoretically freeze you solid as efficiently as a waterbender.

Earthbenders... Does lava-bending sound terrifying to you, too? 'Cause, the thought of someone swishing around red-hot, liquid earth/metal certainly intimidates me.

In the end, the reason they don't do this is either that a bender's capabilities depend on their knowledge of the subject, or the honest fact that including these in a "kids show" would bump the rating up, not to mention making the users of these techniques incredibly overpowered in comparison.
