Benghazi buzz: Obama predicted to leave office
WND ^ | May 7, 2013 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 05/07/2013 8:59:24 PM PDT by Perseverando

More serious than Watergate 'because 4 Americans did in fact die'

To this day, it is not known what role President Richard Nixon played in the break-in at the Watergate Hotel, but the tape recordings from the White House confirm he and Chief of Staff H.R. Haldeman discussed using the CIA to slow down the FBI investigation.

It was the cover-up, as history records, that eventually brought about Nixon’s resignation in disgrace.

Now, Congress is investigating an alleged cover-up of the terrorist attack Sept. 11, 2012, on the U.S. foreign service facility in Benghazi, Libya, amid predictions from prominent voices that the scandal will bring down the Obama administration.

Former Arkansas governor and onetime presidential candidate Mike Huckabee made the bold prediction this week, ahead of a House hearing Wednesday that will feature witnesses of the attack.

“I believe that before it’s all over, this president will not fill out his full term,” he said. “I know that puts me on a limb. But this is not minor. It wasn’t minor when Richard Nixon lied to the American people and worked with those in his administration to cover up what really happened in Watergate.

“But, I remind you – as bad as Watergate was, because it broke the trust between the president and the people, no one died. This is more serious because four Americans did in fact die.”

Meanwhile, John Bolton, former U.N. ambassador and now a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, has also declared the Benghazi scandal could lead to Obama’s removal from office.

“This could be the hinge point,” he told Newsmax. “It’s that serious for them.”

Frank Gaffney, the president of the Center for Security Policy, wrote in a Washington Times column that “the dam seems to be breaking on the nearly eight-month-long cover-up

Nope.

The libs would support another Hilter if he had a (D) after his name and supported partial birth abortion. Dotto for the press.

Unless they turn on him in mass, and that will not happen.

Monica Mess: some freep intoning that he was a suuuuper secret Capitol Hill insider promised that “THE GREY SUITS” were juuuuuust about to WALK UP THE HILL and arrange for Bubba to leave office.

He said that maybe 20 times, then disappeared.

That guy had MANY FANS here.

I have high hopes this time, but let’s just say that’s all they are —HOPES.

With Watergate, the liberal press was in full throated blood lust mode, baying at the moon. The MSM is still mostly spiking any mention of Ben-gazi..................

No, and for these reasons: the media of the time hated Nixon and popular culture placed the blame for Vietnam on him; 0bama, on the other hand, has the nearly universal, and undeserved, praise and protection of the media and the blame for Afghanistan is being placed on Bush.

Put another way, the ruling class and popular culture of the country are fantastically debased and corrupted since 1972, hard as that may have been to imagine at the time. And they grow more debased, corrupt, and disgusting with each passing day.

He could molest a boy scout on the front lawn of the executive mansion, then lie on his prayer rug and do his supplications to Mecca and serve a BBQ of roasted Chihuahuas and nothing, and I mean NOTHING would happen to him.

Great Leader will not leave office over this. Too many people don’t care, too many reporters will ignore it, and too many scape-goats can be found. Even if 100% proof is discovered and shown, how many elected Democrats will break ranks and do the right thing?

Nah, a few deaths and lies and cowardice won't get this guy out of office.

But it will humiliate a lot of "journalists"--who can be jeered out of their jobs, or at least they can't hide the way Obama does.

It’s a pretty reasonable shot for ‘14 if we can get any lamestream press on this scandal at all. But ‘16 depends almost entirely on what the Pubbies do over the next couple years.

Absolutely. If this had been President Bush the media sharks would be out in full force and out for blood. Now that the shoe is on the other foot and it’s one of their own they’re doing their best to avoid this story. All I know is these three whistle blowers by the end of this week will have been trashed and villified and their reputations destroyed.

President Joe Biden?

Well, we'll see, I guess. The House has the sole power to impeach and the GOP runs the House.

I say, impeach the bum no matter what the Senate might or might not do.

Yup, no way this narcissistic a-hole goes anywhere. You would have to be an honorable person to day that. He is not one in any way!

There is no way that Obama would step down, even if Democrats asked him to do so. He isn't done destroying this country yet. Well, maybe if his handlers figured out an angle that would benefit them if Obama resigned, then he might be persuaded. But Obama and his minions are hardcore Marxists and will not let go of power easily.

There is nothing Obama could do that would force him from office or be cause for impeachment. He has pigmentation immunity.

If it were to pass that he let the Americans in Benghazi be slaughtered to protect his reelection chances the media would stand behind him and say that as the first black POTUS he was obligated to do what ever it took to not be gone after one term.

The public would agree to the tune of about 54%!
