    You don't believe they were watching the attack in real time via unarmed drones?

    You don't believe Obama et al knew it was a terrorist attack when they sent Rice and Axelrod out to proclaim the attack was the result of an anti-Islamic film?

    You haven't kept up with recent investigative discoveries re: this story.

    Or, you are willing to say isht you don't believe.

    That's called lying.

    This is true. The question is premature given that all the facts aren't in yet. If the Obama administration is found responsible for inaction, then Benghazi is easily the choice.

If not, the cover up to win the election will make him more impotent than he already is.

    It depends on how the Tea Partiers do, and if Boehner grows a pair of balls to stand up to them. The leadership knows that it's a political liability, but we don't impeach people for bad judgement.

    Obama's administration made a knee jerk reaction, an incorrect one, in whom to attribute the attack to. They corrected their error without any legal pressures.

    Benghazi had the brightest short flame. In the beginning Watergate was almost nothing, then its flame burned a great deal more than Benghazi will ever hope to accomplish.

    subornation of perjury -inducing someone to make a false oath as part of a judicial proceeding; "to prove subordination of perjury you must prove the perjury and also prove that the perjured statement was procured by the accused suborner who knew that it would be false"

    subornation - underhandedly or improperly inducing someone to do something improper or unlawful

    Yeah the GOP is going to be persuaded by Obama's aw-shucks we made a boo-boo

    But the press isn't going bonkers on this so Watergate probably will have a larger impact. Of course is Obunny loses and there is a major league investigation that could change

    No one drowned at watergate

    Look - I do not want to insult anybody for exercising their free choice here. But really folks, anybody who would not realize that Watergate was at least ten times bigger either was born very recently and did not live through that era or is voting with very partisan motives.
