Skip to comments.Graham to Obama: I hold you responsible for Benghazi
Posted on 11/14/2012 12:37:46 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
The war of words over Benghazi escalated Wednesday when President Obama told his critics to "go after me" rather than Ambassador Susan Rice. Those critics then said they would do exactly that.
"Mr. President, don't think for one minute I don't hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi. I think you failed as Commander in Chief before, during, and after the attack," said Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican.
The exchange came after Mr. Graham and Sen. John McCain said they would try to block Ms. Rice if Mr. Obama tapped her to become secretary of state. They said she hasn't done an exemplary job in her current post as ambassador to the U.N., and also said she has damaged her credibility because she inaccurately blamed the Sept. 11 terrorist attack in Benghazi on a mob protest.

[”Mr. President, DON’T THINK FOR ONE MINUTE I don’t hold you ultimately responsible for Benghazi.]
Sorry Leslie, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t think about you at all, just go back your washington steam baths and STFU.
They've both talked tough in the past, but folded like a house of cards. We'll see if they finally grew backbones.
If you think this talk is any more than a little fodder for the sheeple on the right, then you have far too much respect for either McLame or Grahamnesty. They shall both fold LONG before they ever bring up any strong objections.
Remember the FBI files supposedly in the possession of the Clintons years ago? Do you doubt that a much more comprehensive “opposition research” file on EVERY Republican (and quite a few Democrat) officeholder at the national level, and a good many at state level is now in the “war room” of the Current Regime in the White Hut?
We are dealing with some very “hard” players, unafraid of stripping away reputations, private lives, personal fortunes and even any kind of livelihood from anybody they consider to be “enemy”, and this bunch has an “enemies’ file” that would make Richard Nixon’s look like a kid’s birthday invitation list. And the stuff in there does not even have to be true, it only has to be remotely plausible.
The Nationalist Socialist regime in Germany, during the 1930’s and 1940’s, compiled a comparable list, as did the regime in Stalinist Russia, under the Bolsheviks.
The days of the Gestapo in Nazi Germany, and the KGB of the USSR, they had to rely on physical search through hand-written or perhaps typed entries, sometimes hours on end, to collect a set of accusations. Today, with computerized records, it is a matter of going to a search engine, and HUNDREDS of entries can be collated.
Now, Bronco Bama might not be running this operation himself, but Valerie Jarrett sure has her hand in it.
Soon we’re gonna be seeing news reports of Lindsey involved in trolling for gay sex at truck stops...
After doing nothing but bending over and laying down for the Obama regime for the last 4 years...I’m sure Barry is chilled to the bone with McLame and Grahamnesty’s threats. Obama better be careful or Ms. Lindsey’s voice will get more high pitched and he will shake his limp wrist at you!! Pathetic GOPe’ers
Little Lindsay is playing Mr. Stong Moderate to try to impress the people of South Carolina.
Hope Jim DeMint is not fooled into endorsing his fellow state senator as Santorum was!
The blackmailing began last Spring with one Chief Justice Roberts. And it just keeps going. No one is immune from this tyrant. No one.
Mr graham don’t you mean Corrupt Incompetent Coward instead of Commander In Chief for abbrevation CIC?

Too bad Obama wasn't so tough in the defense of his Libyan Ambassador as he is in defense of his UN Ambassador.
Obama only talks tough to American citizens who disagree with him. Everyone else he’s much more flexible with.
This ought to be good — Limp-wristed Lindsee and Blue-Lips Barree in a cat fight. Claws in, girls! MEOW!
The Panetta Doctrine
They had real-time onsite video, secured e-mail and were speaking with personnel at both compounds over at least two lines of radio transmission and cell phones. There were two drones overhead. All of that was live-streaming to the entire DoD-DC network of sit-rooms around the world including the White House.
Did Panetta expect al Qaeda to call in with GPS-camera phones and relay their plans and positions to him? Maybe we can air drop laser sighting tags throughout the Muslim world and ask them to all kindly affix one to the tops of their heads? With barcodes so we can target specific jihadis. Oh, and let's require that terrorists submit detailed plans of attacks to a committee for review at least six months in advance.
Interesting how these guys won’t go to bat for the country or the Constitution or anything like that. But step on their turf or let them feel in any way slighted, and they start fighting like junkyard dogs.
Now anything and everything the Marxist has on Graham will start to come out.
We'll finally see if there's anything to the rumors.
McCain will let loose at the first WH dirty linen drop with regard to Lindsey Graham.
Impeach the Kenyan
Hmmm Graham must be comming up for re-election again. He only grows a set during that time.
The president, through the attorney general (28 CFR 600). Congress can make a bunch of noise, which might spook the president into action. It did so to get an independent investigation of the "who leaked that Plame worked for the CIA?" question.
Congress can and does perform its own independent investigations. It doesn't need to have an outsider to perform its work. The advantage to having the executive branch involved is that the executive branch can bring criminal charges, while Congress can't. But, Congress has the power to remove officials from office.
Expecting Congress to do anything about this, other than flap its gums, runs counter to all of recent history.
