Impeach Obama On Benghazi?

It appears that even John McCain is now backing down, if without apologizing.

I pretty much expected this to go away after the election after I talked to a retired military officer with a lot of contacts in the upper brass who said “believe Powell, not McCain.” I pretty much stopped being interested in it at that point, and figured it would not survive the election one way or the other. Looks like I was right. Unless someone’s got a strong reason for me to believe this Benghazi thing really should have legs still? Something other than muttering?

    1) Susan Rice saying the attack at Benghazi was over some stupid video.

    2) Obama at the UN

    3) Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is in prison for his insult.

    4) His Oath

    “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    That is all.

    1) Susan Rice said the protests at embassies across the Middle East were over a stupid video, and that they did not know if the Benghazi attack was related to the protest in Benghazi.

    2) And? Why should the White House position be anything other than “we do not support inciting religious hatred”. Condemning something is not the same as legislating something.

    3) No, he’s in prison because he’s a meth cooking con artist who was ordered by a court to not use the Internet without explicit approval. He broke the terms of his probation, and what he did by breaking those terms caused an international incident. You bet your ass they’re going to enforce the terms of his probation to the letter.

    No, he’s not in jail because he exercised his right to free speech. He’s in jail because he broke the law by the method of doing that. You know, like holding a political rally at his ex-wife’s house who has a restraining order out on him.

    4) Even if everything you claim is true, i.e. Susan Rice willfully lied on a TV talk show, and Obama praised Muhammad, and Nakoula Nakoula-Boutros-Ghali was railroaded by the courts to accept the draconian sentence of one year’s incarceration, the suggestion that the POTUS ordered this judge to deny some goober his constitutional rights is absolute wingnuttery.
