Republican heavyweight drops 'I-Bomb': Impeachment
The Examiner ^ | May 13, 2013 | Timothy Whiteman

Posted on 05/13/2013 2:23:58 PM PDT by LucianOfSamasota

"The most serious, most egregious cover-up in American history...."

In regards to the current Congressional hearing on the terrorist attack against the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, one of the senior and most respected Republican lawmakers in Washington, D.C. has uttered the word that sends shivers up the spine of any elected official - impeachment, as reported by the non-partisan news portal Digital Journalism via Google News on May 13, 2013.

Long serving Oklahoma U.S. Senator James "Jim" Inhofe recently was a guest on the Las Vegas-based radio program "The Rusty Humphries Show" in which he refered to the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on sovereign American soil by an al-Qaeda allied terrorist organization as a Barack Obama cover-up of the truth which resulted in the deaths of four Americans (video, left).

Inhofe opined that the lack of transparency by the Obama Administration would ensure the attack would be chronicled by historians:

Of all the great cover-ups in history, [Benghazi] is going to go down as the most serious, most egregious cover-up in American history.

Oh yes, IMPEACH. I feel nothing but anger, disgust, and fear against this president and his czars and his cabinet officers. He has America on the rocks. I fear the administration itself and what it will do next to demolish the image of America. It embarrasses our people. The liberals and progressives and socialists have brought us to this.

He’s still talking about waiting until after the 2014 elections and then only if the Senate flips... Seems like he’s waiting to see if the planets align.

And how about our alleged Republican 'leadership'? Will they actually DO anything or will they just honk ad fart about this and that as in the Fast and Furious non-event

WHI says:

First, we’re talking the Republican leadership, right? That bunch of flatulent dimwits could always manage to learn new ways of being stupid.

There's only one way this can end.

obozo hussein is just as corrupt and BLACK now as he was when it became common knowledge that his past had been fabricated to the hilt in order to get him into the WH thus he was not then and is not now legally eligible to be president. Impeachment of this criminal would be welcomed for the sake of this country but falls way short of what he and those who protected his scam deserve. NO RESIGNATION TO ESCAPE JUSTICE AND NO PARDONS prior to charges, trial and convictions. Indict him on the fraud that he has perpetrated on the American people so all that he has done as president can be undone. (Sodimyer and Kagen must be removed from the Supreme Court, all laws and EO he's signed are null and void) and then charge Eric Holder et al for thier involvement in this WH’s criminal enterprise.

(Watergate Articles Of Impeachment)

Nixon realized his country would pay for his crime so like a gentleman, he resigned. Does anyone think Barry Obama has that much class? He would rather see rioting in the streets to save his sorry rear.

Trust Anderson Cooper will still be doing shake-n-bake with the Cincinnati Hell House.

No Benghazi, no IRS persecution, no Gosnell, no AP taps.

CNN will probably build a Hell House torture sound stage complete with hanging chains and monkey bars for Anderson Cooper to swing on.

The Founding Fathers were the #1)wealthy and #2)the most accomplished military men of their time.

I pray each day that the Patriots with means and military experience step up to lead.

So what? If we find we have sufficient evidence of impeachment Obama should be impeached ... period. This idea of "impeach only if there is guaranteed removal via Senate" crap is nonsense. These clowns are emboldened enough as it is because no one will fight them. Having said that we are getting ahead of ourselves. First step is to gather the evidence.

Clinton got impeached for lying about an affair when he should have been impeached for selling nuclear missile secrets to the Red Chinese for suitcases of campaign cash.

Will Obama be impeached for the fiasco in Benghazi or will he be impeached for arming Al Qaeda to fight a US/NATO covert war against Syria?

Impeachment is a no-brainer. The bigger decision is whether to tar-n-feather before, or after, the impeachment.

Neither do I. Nearly one half of Americans don’t pay taxes, most Americans have an entitlement mentality, and a majority consists of low information voters. The rest are distracted by bread and circuses.

..........I prefer that he, his entire cabinet and all his Czar’s resign tomorrow!.............it’s a lot quicker!

Remember it was “calls for his resignation” NOT Impeachment that finally forced Nixon to resign.

And take Harry Reid with him lest he want’s to hang around and get prosecuted. I’m sure it won’t be too hard to find something to prosecute him on.

I believe that despite being impeached and convicted, Bill Clinton remained in office until the end of his term and receives his Presidential retirement and benefits. If impeachment is simply a slap on the wrist, why do it? Conviction should have real consequences, just as conviction does in a court of law.

Quite frankly, if he isn't impeached and forced to resign before the midterms next year, we're going to see the most concerted, effective push of voter fraud ever seen in this country's history. They have to have that Ace up their sleeve at this point.

It will be epic. To the point of 110% voter participation is majority black districts, and the media will say absolutely nothing! Absolutely nothing will be done.

Obama will have his majorities, and the final push to socialism, fascism, Communism will begin.

Senator Inhofe doesn’t have a whole lot of credibility on this issue, as he nixed the idea of a hearing before the 2012 election, when it would have done more good. In other words, this sounds like typical GOP empty talk.

The Republicans played their cards horribly, allowing the Democrats to claim that they were trying to "undo the election". The Republicans should have responded by pointing out that their political interests would be better served by having a lame duck President Clinton in office than a President Gore who would be eligible for reelection not just once, but twice; they are nonetheless duty bound to impeach any President who breaks the law, even if ignoring the crimes would be politically more expedient.

It’s pertinent to every story CNN won’t be covering while they exploit victims of torture victims in Cincinnati.

Nothing exceeds exploitation like yet more exploitation.

It is pertinent to the Boston bombing, Benghazi, AP wire taps, Gosnell. That a major news outlet exploits a story (sake-n-bake) for the very reason of neglecting others is entirely pertinent to those other stories.

If your have a morbid fascination with with torture, enjoy the CNN coverage, I meant nothing personal.

“What’s the point in impeaching now when Senate is controlled by Dems?”

Obviously, it wouldn’t occur. But supposing the GOP were able to capture the Senate in 2014, it might theoretically occur in 2015. But given the Republicans’ chronic cowardice and incompetence, how likely is that?

If its all about politics, then there is no point in impeaching until it is politically expedient for your party.
