    Will the Libya scandal lose the election for Obama?

    What do you think. I personally believe it is worse then the Watergate scandal.........At least no one was murdered.

    It's definitely worse than Watergate but that isn't saying too much.

    The press has been pretty upfront in ignoring anything negative about Pres. Obama, including this incident, so I don't really see where this will make much of a difference. Todd Akin, who no one had ever heard of until this summer, has been given far more attention for a rambling comment he retracted almost immediately. I think that says it all.

    Like with Watergate, it is the cover-up that is going to doom them.

    I wish, as he is partially responsible for their murder, and therefore is one, but no.... He will likely unfortunately win

    I think it will help. It's just one more straw on the camel's back.

    As far as it being "as bad as the Watergate Scandal." No. If Republicans outside Fox (especially Romney) push it too much or in the wrong way it will blow up in their face.

    Fact is, Obama's statements fit the reports given by the CIA agencies beneath him at any given point in time. All he has to do is produce the documents and any argument against him is destroyed and discredited.

    Secondly, it can't be even remotely comparable to the Watergate Scandal because the Administration hasn't delivered its report. For all we know, someone will be found guilty of negligence or incompetence and offered up as a sacrificial lamb, or at least, mistakes made in and out of the Administration will be acknowledged. That's opposed to the Nixon Administration, which hid everything with the president's knowing.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I believe it could take him down if it gets so hot that the media has to cover it. Right now they are pretty much ignoring it because they in the bag for Obama.

    Yeah, that's why they're ignoring it.

    More likely it is a ploy to capture a wider share of the independent market in weeks to come. As I understand it, Fox has cornered the conservative market so effectively that it was starting to moderate its message a little to come across as more credible to independents. The incidence of the Libya attack so close to the election, powered by the conspiracy machine of Internet right-ring "journalism", drove them to start covering the incident the way they have. The short term viewership increase, plus the political gains for their network, was to tempting to pass up, independents or not.

    Nobody else has that motivation, and they can use it against Fox in the ratings war later.
