There are few comparisons between Benghazi and Watergate that can be made.

And it is important to remember than Nixon never faced impeachment. He resigned before any proceedings began, but Obama will not resign. Period.

Behghazi was a tragedy and was handled poorly, but there is no evidence any coverup came from the White House. Politically, it is a dead horse, and no matter how hard it's beaten, it will never get back up and whinny.
So, you are choosing to believe that Obama is completely incompetent and ignorant. I guess that's a possibility, but I don't buy it.

1. The White House didn't have every detail immediately at hand concerning the Benghazi incident. As a matter of fact, the president used the term act of terror instead of terrorist attack! OutRAGEous!

2. The DOJ was investigating leaks by the "liberal media" after the GOP congress expressed concern over national security. OutRAGEous!

3. Every right wing political group that applied for tax-free status from the IRS got it. OutRAGEous!

What's next on the RWNJ outrage horizon?

Anyone have the latest from sheriff Joe on the birth certificate?

We haven't heard much from "the Donald" lately. Surely he has some updates from that "crack team of Hawaiian investigators" by now.

Hasn't Rev Wright said anything that can be taken out of context in the past five years or so?

Come on, you guys. Get with it. You're slipping. The marxist muslim is getting away with everything.

You touched on some really important issues here. They've clearly lost focus on what really matters.

Give them a break, there is no time to legislate when you are in search of a scandal. That takes a lot of time, especially when you are reduced to manufacturing them. Very time-consuming.

I think this is why people are so fed up with Washington in general. Each side is quite busy playing 'gotcha' with the other so no actual work gets done.

Default Al Qaeda weapons expert says U.S. ambassador to Libya killed by lethal injection

Now We Know Why Obama Did Not Act in Benghazi

Amb. Stevens was overseeing the transfer of weapons to Syria through Turkey which the media and Congress are still ignoring. The scheme to “kidnap” him and then exchange him for the blind sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman could only have come from Obama. This plan was hidden in plain sight. Wall Street Journal on September 24th, 2012…

The revelation concerning the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens by lethal injection will become the catalyst for the future of our country. The source of this information is Bill Gertz: his reputation and sources are credible.

New witnesses, who have direct knowledge of Obama and Clinton's role in-

1. why we were in Benghazi- apparently to "resecure" rockets given to terrorists
2. the fact that Obama ordered military personnel to "stand down"
3. the cover up
4. the release of Petraeus' affair to silence him
5. the "retirement" of Ham

Gee............... they have not even interviewed high ranking members of the white house staff or military yet. Things could get ugly for Obama.
Secretary Clinton has accepted all responsibility. She is the one who should pay the price legaly and politicaly.

Yeah...

So, whatever happened to the scandal?

How come Issa and the teabaggers in congress couldn't pin all the crap they claimed on the president?

Oh, well. You still have that birth certificate thing.

Go get 'em, tiger!

Remember, it was Hillary who first started "that birth certificate thing" rolling. Odd, isn't it?
