Graham and McCain are digging their own graves with this tough talk. Obama will have his revenge. Time for the media to start investigating them.

I hold Graham responsible for encouraging illegal aliens and pushing amnesty. The blood is on his hands.

Obama is getting bold and sassy and challenging the Congress to go after him.

They need to call him down to testify, and if he won't testify, he should be subpoenaed. And if he doesn't appear, he should be held in contempt.

This guy is acting like a classic bully, it's time to confront him straight on.

Something to e-mail to every talking head, every Senator and every House rep.

--------------------------------------------------------

Fact One:

1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.

Plus Fact Two:

2) No rescue mission was attempted.

Equals Fact Three:

3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.

Herridge On Cable Month Before Benghazi Attack: "Smoking Gun Warning Here"

There was no surprise about the attack. There was no 'failure of intel.' The attack was predicted in precise detail a month before it occurred. The draw down of security had to be intentional.

CIA Sources: Obama ordered military not to help Ambassador Stevens

The failure to approve a rescue had to be intentional.

Sources: Key task force not convened during Benghazi consulate attack

Keeping the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) in the dark about the attack had to be intentional.

Tweeting apologies for the 'anti-Muhammed video' beginning early that morning, repeatedly blaming all the violence at all of our embassies on the 'video' and making an apology video to air in Pakistan had to be intentional.

Stevens presence in Benghazi on 9-11 had to be intentional.

No, Graham, Rice did not “inaccurately” blame the attack on a video. It was not a mistake. It was a flat out lie.

Graham and McCain are themselves responsible. If they had done their jobs and actually demanded some answers from Obama instead of cheerleading, we might not have gotten involved in the Libyan mess to begin with.

Even so, Graham and McCain are right about Rice and the failure of Obama's leadership in the case of Benghazi. I think we ought to support them with regard to that. It's not an endorsement of all they say and do.

They've both talked tough in the past, but folded like a house of cards. We'll see if they finally grew backbones.

To: Jeff Chandler

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.

The Panetta Doctrine

On Benghazi, Panetta Says Needed 'Advance Notice' of Surprise Attack for Timely Response

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.

Precisely.

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.

Woo Hoo! Woo Hoo!

-- Who calls for a Special, Independent Prosecutor and where/why hasn't this happened? --

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.

The tough talk is needed - let's just hope they have the manhood to back it up with tough action. Else, it will be their graves instead of his, despite the fact that there is enough to bury him politically if someone actually bulldogs through all the scandals...

Save you tough talk for your boyfriend!

This is strictly an aside. I understand why you used that expression, i.e., to express contempt, but folks, does it not make you wonder why there has never been any evidence at all that Mr. Graham is homosexual? Plenty of sarcastic remarks but no evidence.

Given the fact that he is somewhere in his 50s, surely there would be some trail of a dalliance here or there, don't you think?
