Top GOP Senator Says Obama Could Be Impeached Over ‘Most Egregious Cover-Up in American History’
The Blaze ^ | May 10, 2013 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 05/10/2013 7:26:49 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

The top-ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee said President Barack Obama could possibly be impeached over what happened in Benghazi.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) said in a radio interview Thursday that “of all the great cover-ups in history” — including the Pentagon papers, Iran-Contra and Watergate — Benghazi “is going to go down as most serious, most egregious cover-up in American history.”

“We may be starting to use the I-word before too long,” Inhofe said on the Las Vegas-based “Rusty Humphries Show.”

“The I-word meaning impeachment?” Humphries asked.

“Yeah,” Inhofe confirmed.

When Humphries questioned the likelihood of impeachment, Inhofe said it wouldn’t be immediate.....

“saying” it and actually doing it are two different things.

When they grow a pair, maybe.

Until then, I won’t hold my breath.

See: L.A.
And a number of other examples of what happens when black people make a decision “en masse”.

It’s not all of them - it’s just a lot of them, and L.A. was a number of years ago. I believe it would actually be worse now.

Then why are we discouraging our congress from supporting impeachment. Comments like the senatora are trial balloons to see if there is popular support for impeachment. The defeatist comments on this thread disgust me, are we all going to act like Speaker Beohner with no backbone. I say “damn the torpedoes full speed ahead.”

Additionally, only with the public airing of impeachment hearings in the House Judiciary committee will the actual truth have a chance to sink into American minds of all races, even as the enemy fifth column, the media, seek to spin the truth into protective lies for little barry bastard boy. If America has reached the state where the truth being aired is too ‘dangerous’, then we are truly lost and the Republic is over ... ‘A Republic, madame, if you can keep it.’

People in this forum are ready for full speed ahead. Now if you have a great idea on getting Boehner and the house to go full speed ahead lets hear it.

We have been poking and prodding them for 4 years now.

The fake president should never have been allowed anywhere near the White House. He cannot pass a weapons background check.

WF, do yourself a favor and punch that guy's name into Gargle, or poke around in here a bit as there were at least two longish threads with info from FReepers familiar with the guy.

History of ties to CodePink and OWS, among others .. whoever his handlers are will be counting on folks not checking him out before signing up for what's very likely an ØFA setup and subsequent FedGoon turkey shoot.

An aggrieved citizens' assault on the maggots in DC has a definite appeal, but that loon is nowhere near the one to lead it.

To be honest I’d rather him be found ineligible to hold office in the first place than to be impeached. If he is impeached he’ll simply be removed, leaving all of his acts remaining in place. If found ineligible to hold office, a stong case can be made to void every official act he has taken as president.

I am using POTUS wrong I guess since I am meaning the People of the United States not the President. don’t know it it matters to anyone but thought I would point this out.

The first use of POTUS that I saw was on a Secret Service schedule in 1976 where POTUS was used to mean President of the United States.

Agreed. Find him ineligible, then remove everything. But if that’s the case, a lot more folks need to be held accountable for Hussein’s usurpation. Top media folks, party apparatchiks, embedded govt employees who allowed the sham presidency to happen, knowing full well he was not legally allowed to assume the office should be prosecuted..

Impeachment might be in the cards depending on which way the winds are blowing for the Administration 6 months or a year from now. More people will be hurting, and pissed off, AND
the Boston Marathon bombing “suspect” will be seen getting
kid-glove handling, considering that he’s probably gotta get in line behind Major Hasan and KSM.....the Obama Gang is getting jostled badly by the first repercussions of all their policy decisions, their great achievement Obamacare, and their
thoroughly subversive worldview as regards Islam.

Ted Cruz isn’t a RINO and Rand Paul isn’t a RINO.

The rest of the GOP senators put on conservative stage performances then vote RINO, then vote conservative, then vote RINO again depending on the issue and what special interests bought them.

Ones who are up for re-election in 2014 like Inhofe are now voting conservative all the time.

I don’t like amnesty but the ACU-CPAC conservatives are the beltway GOP-E, not outside the beltway folks like me.

Rand Paul is an outsider, its just that his outsider status may be too far left for us, Ted Cruz’s outsider status is a better kind.

My number one agenda item is a balanced budget now not ten years from now like Pat Toomey and Paul Ryan are pushing.

Inhofe could propose the immediate balanced budget and maybe then I would change my mind.

All the emotional arguments about different issues won’t stop the debt bubble from bursting.

WE NEED DEBT ACTION NOW AND THESE BUSINESS AS USUAL POLITICIANS AREN’T TAKING IT.

There is no way we can achieve a balanced budget now. Two thirds of the budget includes the entitlement programs, other so-called mandatories, and debt servicing costs. Revenue just covers these costs. When you borrow 43 cents out of every dollar, it makes it very difficult to make the necessary changes immediately to balance the budget.

The federal government controls 25% of our GDP and about 40% when you include state and local government. I want a balanced budget, but it will have to be done incrementally.

At least Ryan and Toomey are now talking about 10 years to do it. Before that, they were saying it would be 40 to 50 years from now.

And just having a balanced budget is not the answer. You can balance the budget by increasing taxes and other revenue producing measures. We need to balance the budget by reducing spending and reforming out entitlement programs that will bankrupt us if they are not changed.

Surely you can't be serious. There is no way to over react to criminal treason and assasiation and then covering it up with more crimes, and lies. And "people" think it's political? The media lapdogs, and even some of them are turning. The more the public (the ones who are not doped up/braindead/illiterates) will see the truth once more of it is presented to them.

Benghazi whistle-blower a Democrat, voted for Hillary and Obama twice

Benghazi whistle-blower a Democrat, voted for Hillary and Obama twice

A key Benghazi whistle-blower who has allegedly been punished for speaking out against the administration is a registered Democrat who voted for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

The lawyer of Gregory Hicks, the former U.S. deputy chief of mission in Libya who testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Wednesday, confirmed the information to The Daily Caller on Saturday.

According to the lawyer, Victoria Toensing, Hicks voted for Clinton during the 2008 primary, and for then-Illinois Sen. Obama in the 2008 general election. He again voted for Obama in 2012.
