“Unworthy Commander-In-Chief”

Which do you think will have a bigger effect on voters in a swing state, Nurse Bloomberg’s endorsement of Obama, or this devastating editorial in the Las Vegas Review-Journal?

At least more Nevada voters will know what happened in Benghazi.

[Update a couple minutes later]

At least Jake Tapper is reporting on it: “The Benghazi drip, drip, drip.”

People should realize that this is very much like 1972 (the Watergate break-in had happened that summer). We may be sparing ourselves another impeachment by removing the president on Tuesday.

      I guess it depends on who the independants break for, who regestered more new voters and who turns up on the final day. It is a bit early to call the state for Obama.

  1. Der Schtumpy

    And this WOULD be another Watergate if it had been done by a (R) WH. But this WH just doesn’t get much scrutiny from the MSM.

    1. Paul Milenkovic

      Hey, didn’t Bob Woodward just publish “The Price of Politics”, not scrutinizing Libya on account of the time of publication, but scrutinizing the Debt Ceiling Standoff?

      1. Der Schtumpy

        Woodward just got an advance to write his next book, it will be called, “The Price Of Poultry Clothing”.

        It deals with the Benghazi mess and the chicken shirt POTUS who let 4 Americans die.

    Is Benghazi actually an impeachable offense?

    I dealy want Obama gone, and personally I’d like to see him impeached even if he loses by a landslide Tuesday, but what would the legal grounds be?

    What laws did he break? My best guess would be lying to the congressional committees that have a legal right and duty to be kept informed of military and intel matters, or telling people to lie.

    Much like Watergate, it’s not the act, but the coverup, that gets you.

    1. MfK

      Well, wait a minute. He may have been lying to congress, but is that necessarily impeachable? After all, he was lying when he blamed the attack on an American-made video that insulted various groups of Muslims. And if the experience of the Clinton impeachment taught us anything, it’s that no one cares if you lie about sects.

      1. Arizona CJ

        “lie about sects”

        ROFL! Good one!

        The difference here might be that in Obama’s case, he (or people acting under his orders to do so) was lying to congressional committees (such as the intel committees) that have a legal right and duty to know. Clinton only lied in court, not to congress in an official capacity where they had a legal right to know, and they impeached him anyway.

      1. McGehee

        In this case the votes are members of the United States Senate. Even if every seat up for grabs goes Republican, most of those Republicans would get watery bowels at the thought of removing a president, just like their predecessors did in 1998.

    2. Jim

      My best guess would be lying to the congressional committees that have a legal right and duty to be kept informed of military and intel matters

      You mean the way Reagan was impeached over Iran-Contra? Oh wait…

      Anything is an impeachable offense if you have the votes.

      Sad, but mostly true. Only “mostly” because the raw exercise of majority power can trigger a public backlash, e.g. the Clinton impeachment, which discredited the House GOP more than Clinton.

      1. Karl Hallowell

        Well, we see President Obama protecting (and in the process committing obstruction of justice) people who committed federal felonies, including accessory to murder of a federal law enforcement agent. But even if he gets reelected, we’re unlikely to see anything come of that. It takes a lot of work to remove a president no matter how richly they deserve it.

      Just breaking: Obama receives overwhelming support from retirned military commanders!”

      /MSM mode.

      Thanks for this list. I have a hunch that it’s no coincidence that swing state absentee ballots are having trouble getting to military bases overseas so the troops can vote.

        1. ken anthony

          [Lightbulb!!!] Make them all astronauts! [Two birds with one stone] They all migrate to mars establishing a new world, but continue to hold the ‘progressive’ floodwaters back here in the mean time.

        It is very difficult to make remote electronic voting secure without compromising the secret ballot.

        1. Leland

          Indeed, but its not impossible. Consider the amount of money the US DOJ is spending to block voter ID laws under the notion that such laws disenfranchise voters. That money could easily be spent in expanding the technology already created for NASA astronauts, so that are military men and women in deployed locations have a greater ability to vote. The barrier to the armed services in voting is much greater than any of the state voter id laws.

          1. ken anthony

            This also eliminates the need for voter ID if done right and can be audited much easier than what we currently have. I was thinking this would only be for overseas military, but now I’m thinking it should apply to everyone. Anyone with access to an internet connection could vote and fraudulent voting could possibly be eliminated. (They could still buy those numbers from people that have them legitimately. Stealing them would be like stealing a pin number. You’d have to intercept their mail.)

            The ballot is secret because you do not keep a list of what numbers were sent to whom, only that everyone just gets one.

    How about the idea of spending hundreds of billions of dollars investing in America’s future in space, rather than wasting all that money trying to play God on the ground overseas? Increasingly, it seems like what we have in America today, is a gigantic military, with a support country(US) attached, and basically expected to kiss the hem of the robe and stand at attention while representatives of the authority structure pass in review. Libya has oil, there’s people on this side of the ocean, that want the oil, anyone tells you different, is selling something. The accumulated forces of evil killed the ambassador. Ok, well, that sucks, but, what now, justification for mass invasion of yet another resource-bearing country? And, given the ski-mask nature of past years’ developments in Mexico, what guarantee do we honestly have that the act wasn’t perpetrated by turncoats somehow employed through our very own military in all its’ dark, bloodstained majesty? I think there’s billions of dollars ‘on the table’, and the MIC is all about keeping the wheels greased, there, and harvesting yet another basically defenseless foreign country and its’ oil holdings is far from being beyond their capability. All the politics-stuff is basically a sideshow, the main event is what it’s always been: Money. Well that, and power, and control that go along with that kind of money. Militarists aren’t entirely in love with Barry, for the simple reason that he represents the public, and public dissent against war, and he’s been working to bring the military home, which is not a happy empire-building move. Remember the warmongers in our midst, and their pedigree and heritage…and that the first casualty in time of war, is the truth. What is the truth of Libya, frankly? And, how long before US divisions will permanently establish themselves in that country? The game continues…

      I was looking for a point to your post but all I saw was a wall of text. They put that return key on your keyboard for a purpose.

      “Militarists aren’t entirely in love with Barry, for the simple reason that he represents the public, and public dissent against war, and he’s been working to bring the military home, which is not a happy empire-building move.”

      You really believe that? The same man that saw more troops lost in Afghanistan during his term than the previous President? The same man that expanded a shadow drone war encompassing the ME and Northern Africa? Obama is a man of peace?

      “Ok, well, that sucks, but, what now, justification for mass invasion of yet another resource-bearing country?”

      “What is the truth of Libya, frankly? And, how long before US divisions will permanently establish themselves in that country? The game continues…”

      So you think that some shadowy group in the military assassinated the ambassador so that there would be a pretext for an invasion where we pump that free oil back to the states? And you think that Obama was not responsible for his own actions but was a puppet for this shadowy group?
