    Democrats Back Away from Obama on Benghazi

    Is this the beginning of the end of Barack Obama's Presidency ?

    Is this Barack Obama's Watergate ?

    Nixon resigned because he lied (not under oath) that he had no knowledge of the Watergate break in knowing it could hurt his reelection for a second term in the White House. Nixon wasn't informed of the Watergate break in until after it happened. And no one was murdered during the Watergate break in.

    Evidence has already surfaced that President Obama knew while the attack on the consulate in Benghazi was in progress that it was a well organized attack having nothing to do with a You Tube video and by the next day it was confirmed that the attack was an Al Qaeda attack.

    But Obama knowing he has been running for reelection on a platform that Al Qaeda was on the run and being decimated, that if the American people found out that Al Qaeda isn't on the run and have expanded it's base of operations during his first term in the White House all across the Middle East and North Africa, this could cause him to lose reelection. So he ordered a cover up six weeks before the November elections.

    Will President Obama show the same respect to the office of the Presidency and resign as Nixon did back in 74 ?

    Will the Democrats follow the same course as the Republicans honorably did back in 74 when they told Nixon it's time to go ?

    It's starting to look likely some Democrats see Obama's Watergate coming.

    Sunday Shows: Democrats Back Away from Obama on Benghazi, Syria

    >" Democrats on Sunday morning's news shows appeared to back away from President Barack Obama on his administration's response to the Benghazi terror attack and his blurry "red line" on Syria's chemical weapons.
    On Fox News Sunday, Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-MA) admitted that the Obama administration's talking points on Benghazi, edited to remove references to extremism and blaming protests against an anti-Islamic YouTube video for the violence, were "false. They were wrong. There were no protests outside the Benghazi compound."

    On CBS News' Face the Nation, Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD), the Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, also admitted that the administration's talking points were wrong, though putting the changes down to the fact that the intelligence changed over time in a "volatile situation."


    Meanwhile, on Syria, former Rep. Jane Harman, a prominent California Democraet, acknowledged on NBC News' Meet the Press that the Obama administration had been slow to respond: "I wish we had acted sooner."

    Republicans remain divided on the Syria issue, but on Benghazi the caucus anticipates a week of testimony that will prove deeply damaging to the Obama administration, as well as the media's attempts to protect him. "<

    I tried this thread, nobody cared, maybe you will have better luck than I did. I do think as this cover up unravels it could be the undoing of obama's presidency though. I'm not talking impeachment but if he was elected on the basis of a cover up and a huge lie to the American people he may be considered an illegitimate president and may as well spend his second term playing more golf, more BB and taking more vacations because he will be more than a lame duck, he will be completely impotent.

    I stopped reading when you asked if President Obama would resign.

    Benghazi is not Watergate. Jesus. Watergate attempted to disenfranchise the American people. After Nixon knew exactly what had happened, he did everything in his power to cover it up.

    Benghazi was a screw-up. And that's IF it happened the way I think it did: that our country failed to protect its Ambassador and didn't send help when they could have and should have.

    To me, it isn't important that he said it was all about a YouTube video. Anyone who heard that discounted it from Jump Street, in my opinion.

    It's called Benghazigate, so it's the same thing. Deal with it.

    Nobody died in Watergate, it pales in comparison to Benghazi.

    No. I don't agree.

    I know you don't like the guy, (hell, I don't either) but to even contemplate it would cause his impeachment is ludicrous.

    I never said it will cause his impeachment, it may however make him an impotent pres that nobody takes serious if it is discovered he was elected undr false pretenses, if he coverd up a huge mistake and lied in order to get elected. This may be his undoing.

    You wish it was as good as watergate. We know this because every little thing that happens with Obama you jump like an excited and easily fooled dog thinking he will have to resign or be impeached. It is not happening. I know you are excited because faux has fooled you into thinking this time they reaklly did throw the ball, but like always you run off all excited while everyone else laughts at you trying to fetch a ball that never existed.

    But maybe this time you are right. maybe this time it actually means something despite months of nothing. Maybe you will get Obama to resign and then Mittens can be president. Maybe I am just too cruel to let you in on the end of that joke.

    Wow, even that is way out of the realm of possibility. You do have a hope, and that is in the 2014 election if you can get enough reps into the legislature to keep doing the spoiled brat congressional hissy fit tactic they have been employing for the past 4 years.
