"The most serious, most egregious cover-up in American history...."
In regards to the current Congressional hearing on the terrorist attack against the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, one of the senior and most respected Republican lawmakers in Washington, D.C. has uttered the word that sends shivers up the spine of any elected official - impeachment, as reported by the non-partisan news portal Digital Journalism via Google News on May 13, 2013.
Long serving Oklahoma U.S. Senator James "Jim" Inhofe recently was a guest on the Las Vegas-based radio program "The Rusty Humphries Show" in which he refered to the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on sovereign American soil by an al-Qaeda allied terrorist organization as a Barack Obama cover-up of the truth which resulted in the deaths of four Americans (video, left).
Inhofe opined that the lack of transparency by the Obama Administration would ensure the attack would be chronicled by historians:
Of all the great cover-ups in history, [Benghazi] is going to go down as the most serious, most egregious cover-up in American history.

Oh yes, IMPEACH. I feel nothing but anger, disgust, and fear against this president and his czars and his cabinet officers. He has America on the rocks. I fear the administration itself and what it will do next to demolish the image of America. It embarrasses our people. The liberals and progressives and socialists have brought us to this.
He’s still talking about waiting until after the 2014 elections and then only if the Senate flips... Seems like he’s waiting to see if the planets align.
Glenn Beck said it best: “This country is being run by the Chicago crime syndicate.”
First, were talking the Republican leadership, right? That bunch of flatulent dimwits could always manage to learn new ways of being stupid.
There's only one way this can end.
Shoot, I'd rather have Al Capone, Frank Nitti and the gang running the country. At least they were honest about what they were (as well as being natural born citizens to boot)
*laughing like Renfield*
Let the fun begin.
The Founding Fathers would've been finished with the 3 day revolution against the half-wits destroying our country by now and we'd be printing up new coinage.
I think a crime syndicate would be more efficient.
This country in being run by an affirmative action enabled, zoot-suited gang of pimps.
After the last few days; there should be many more in Congress discussing impeachment...
I don't have a ton of faith in American voters. They vote with their...oh never mind; you get my drift.
Republican heavyweights = oxymoron.
Good luck with that.
Wasn’t it Inhofe’s small plane that lost it’s propeller in flight back in Clinton days?
Might happen again, or worse.
Reminds me of the good old days on FR... ;-)
Nixon realized his country would pay for his crime so like a gentleman, he resigned. Does anyone think Barry Obama has that much class? He would rather see rioting in the streets to save his sorry rear.
Trust Anderson Cooper will still be doing shake-n-bake with the Cincinnati Hell House.
No Benghazi, no IRS persecution, no Gosnell, no AP taps.
CNN will probably build a Hell House torture sound stage complete with hanging chains and monkey bars for Anderson Cooper to swing on.
The Founding Fathers were the #1)wealthy and #2)the most accomplished military men of their time.
I pray each day that the Patriots with means and military experience step up to lead.
So what? If we find we have sufficient evidence of impeachment Obama should be impeached ... period. This idea of "impeach only if there is guaranteed removal via Senate" crap is nonsense. These clowns are emboldened enough as it is because no one will fight them. Having said that we are getting ahead of ourselves. First step is to gather the evidence.
Will Obama be impeached for the fiasco in Benghazi or will he be impeached for arming Al Qaeda to fight a US/NATO covert war against Syria?
Classic !!! Oh man that is funny !!!
“The liberals and progressives and socialists have brought us to this.”
They have, indeed. And if there is any justice in this world they will be held accountable.
“The Founding Fathers would’ve been finished with the 3 day revolution against the half-wits destroying our country by now and we’d be printing up new coinage.”
Benghazi, IRS and now AP. A virtual trifecta of scandals and malfeasance in office. Strong case for impeachment IMO.
Is Chicago pulling Harry Reid’s strings, or is there another family involved???
I don’t have a ton of faith in American voters.
Neither do I. Nearly one half of Americans don’t pay taxes, most Americans have an entitlement mentality, and a majority consists of low information voters. The rest are distracted by bread and circuses.
At least they knew how to turn a profit.
..........I prefer that he, his entire cabinet and all his Czar’s resign tomorrow!.............it’s a lot quicker!
Remember it was “calls for his resignation” NOT Impeachment that finally forced Nixon to resign.
And take Harry Reid with him lest he want’s to hang around and get prosecuted. I’m sure it won’t be too hard to find something to prosecute him on.
Yep, ineligible for impeachment!
I believe that despite being impeached and convicted, Bill Clinton remained in office until the end of his term and receives his Presidential retirement and benefits. If impeachment is simply a slap on the wrist, why do it? Conviction should have real consequences, just as conviction does in a court of law.
The first Black President has been wanting to be the last one all along, and to make us fools and pip squeaks of the world.
Impeachment? NEVER GONNA HAPPEN! Demobumies will never sign on to that happening let along vote for it.
Quite frankly, if he isn't impeached and forced to resign before the midterms next year, we're going to see the most concerted, effective push of voter fraud ever seen in this country's history. They have to have that Ace up their sleeve at this point.
It will be epic. To the point of 110% voter participation is majority black districts, and the media will say absolutely nothing! Absolutely nothing will be done.
Obama will have his majorities, and the final push to socialism, fascism, Communism will begin.
I saw that on another thread, about Gosnell, and I had no freaking idea what the poster meant. So it’s spamming many threads with this?
Senator Inhofe doesn’t have a whole lot of credibility on this issue, as he nixed the idea of a hearing before the 2012 election, when it would have done more good. In other words, this sounds like typical GOP empty talk.
The Republicans played their cards horribly, allowing the Democrats to claim that they were trying to "undo the election". The Republicans should have responded by pointing out that their political interests would be better served by having a lame duck President Clinton in office than a President Gore who would be eligible for reelection not just once, but twice; they are nonetheless duty bound to impeach any President who breaks the law, even if ignoring the crimes would be politically more expedient.
It’s pertinent to every story CNN won’t be covering while they exploit victims of torture victims in Cincinnati.
Nothing exceeds exploitation like yet more exploitation.
It is pertinent to the Boston bombing, Benghazi, AP wire taps, Gosnell. That a major news outlet exploits a story (sake-n-bake) for the very reason of neglecting others is entirely pertinent to those other stories.
If your have a morbid fascination with with torture, enjoy the CNN coverage, I meant nothing personal.
Oh, come on. Everyone lies about murdered ambassadors and gun-running operations./s
What’s the point in impeaching now when Senate is controlled by Dems?
“Whats the point in impeaching now when Senate is controlled by Dems?”
Obviously, it wouldn’t occur. But supposing the GOP were able to capture the Senate in 2014, it might theoretically occur in 2015. But given the Republicans’ chronic cowardice and incompetence, how likely is that?
