On October 27th, 2012, only days before the presidential election, I wrote:
If Barack Obama is reelected, will he face impeachment over Benghazi — a yet more unpleasant and far more wrenching result than to lose an election?
It could happen — and in my estimation should happen — the way revelations are playing out over the bloody terror attack that took four American lives and has led to weeks of prevarication and obfuscation.
The scandal thus far has at least tarnished and quite possibly implicated everyone from the CIA director, to the secretaries of State and Defense, to the UN ambassador and, of course, the president himself — with no end in sight, because Obama, normally loath to expose himself and even less so in an election season, refuses to answer questions on the subject.
It’s not the crime, but the cover-up, we learned in an earlier impeachment, only in this case the crime may be just as bad or worse.”
That post was a follow-up to my item from the previous week saying that Obama should resign over Benghazi, which was linked to by Drudge, and created a minor brouhaha. Between those two posts, a number of people accused me of being overheated. I even started to feel that way myself. (Hey, I’m a screenwriter. Dramatic license comes with the job description.)
No longer. Reading Stephen F. Hayes’ new article in The Weekly Standard — “The Benghazi Talking Points” — I am beginning to feel like Nostradamus. I’m not ready to make any predictions, but let’s put it this way…
Barack Obama is bloody lucky he’s a Democrat, because if he were a Republican, he’d be in deep trouble right now, close to the brink of extinction. Only his increasingly pathetic loyal media claque can save him. It will be interesting to see if they do so at the expense of their own reputations.
Of course the reputations of the State Department need to be considered as well, that same State Dept that, according to Hayes (and this is corroborated by emails he publishes), bowdlerized and censored all references to al-Qaeda involvement in the Benghazi events before they could reach the fragile American public in an election year, almost even as they were happening.
There could never be an impeachment with a Liberal majority. Republicans would vote to rid the government of unsavory politicians, but the Liberals will never do that. The Liberals defend even the most grevious things this administration does.
I wonder if he has to be impeached if he’s charged with federal crimes. Of course Holder would have to be hooked up too, as well as Jarrett and a big pile of others. Heh heh… believe it or not, a RICO violation may be possible as well, I would have to research it a little since I quit teaching it about 10 years ago. Wouldn’t that be cool…
What I wouldn’t give to see Obama, Biden, Clinton, Kerry, Holder, Axelrod, Jarret, Pelosi and Reid impeached and convicted for the obvious treason they have committed collectively over ‘Fast and Furious’, vote fraud, throwing out the Black Panther voter intimidation case, Benghazi, Obamacare, the takeover of GM, and all the Keynesian economic disasters.
We are reaping what as a nation of easily distracted, low-information voters, we have sown.
you mean you as a NATION are reaping what you have allowed to grow bigger,
now you have the beast with all the horns grown on his head, and harder to destroy,
because the horns have grown heads also.
Obama might have done a lot of bad things……but he’s American-born, not a Keynesian!
THE most dangerous man alive
Even if Obama met the standards for impeachment, I wouldn’t get my hopes up on it happening any time soon. Congress would be divided along party lines and a number of Republicans would be too afraid of being called racists. The media is a propaganda outlet so forget them as being part of what used to be a system of checks and balances. Finally, even taking into account the kool aid drinkers, too many people just don’t care anymore about holding our elected officials to any type of a standard.
yes you too are loosing faith,
wait for it a little more, time is no object anymore,
but the future will come and will be a judge to today,
and the future will be rutheles for whoever try to hurt AMERICANS,
and try to change AMERICA, there will be no pity for those,
and they will be uncover bare to AMERICA and the WORLD,
they will not find a place to hide, and their punishment will be great,
@another vet: And that’s why I posted what I posted. Wouldn’t it be cool if some career FBI with big case of DGaF followed through with warrants / probable cause for a host of criminal violations creating the required predicates for a RICO case. No immediate impeachment, just probable cause for arrest. F’em… needs to be done.
@Scott in Oklahoma: I agree it needs to be done if laws were broken etc. Watergate was largely ignored at first and when the details came out, Americans demanded accountability and Nixon went. Prominent people in his own party like Goldwater told him he needed to go when it became apparent he lied and was engaged in a cover up. But times are different now. Can you imagine Reid or someone else in the Party telling Obama he needs to step down if in fact it can be proven crimes were committed? Reality is it probably won’t happen even though it should.
@ilovebeeswarzone: You are very optimistic. I applaud you for that. However, if people really cared about our laws and Constitution a majority of the people wouldn’t have re-elected him POTUS.
yes that’s why they call them uninforme, unfit to vote
some are even go as far as breaking the law and cheat many times
while they take the job of OFFICERS counting the votes,
it happened a lot more than we know,,
it’s just beginning to surface how much,
they are still digging it.
