    Seriously?
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968

    I am not sure yet. I think Benghazi could possibly end up being a bigger scandal once its all said and done. It's still early yet because they are keeping everything so hush hush. It won't be until after the election that the truth will come out, but even then Obama will try his best to have it covered up. I wish America could see just how dangerous this man is.

    There is no Benghazi scandal yet.

    It's hard to believe any permutation of events in Benghazi could rise to the level of Watergate.

    What sequence of events could you see having happened that would amount to a scandal that would cause President Obama to either face impeachment or resign?

    I'll repeat what I asked Bamamom. What sequence of events do you see happening re Benghazi that would result in the president being impeached or forced to resign? I just don't see it. We don't impeach presidents for mistakes. We don't force them to resign because they made an unpopular decision. What "scandal" do you see here?

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    If they are both cases of Presidential cover-up then we have to compare them that way. Nixon went to extremes to cover it up, to the point the Supreme Court had to actually order him to turn over the tapes.

    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.
