The Impeach Obama crowd must be out of the woodwork after revelations that the Benghazi cover up has crept inside the White House. Stephen Hayes at The Weekly Standard itemized Jay Carney’s lies and misstatements in yesterday’s presser on Fox News. They were humiliating.
So we are inside the White House now. Carney not only kicked the CIA and State Department under the bus yesterday, he kicked the driver off, stole the bus and tried to run them over. But it must have been running on Obama corn syrup because it conked out.
There is no missing the White House’s fingerprints at every turn in the president’s plot to bury four dead Americans under the jetsam of a presidential campaign juggernaut that refused to slow for speed bumps.
And that is the disgrace: that this administration considered Benghazi little more than a speed bump.
Add to all this the growing suspicion that the Obama White House, or worse, Campaign Obama, may have targeted tea party groups for IRS scrutiny in 2012, and you have a near-Watergate-level scandal. Near, because the media will never allow any Democrat scandal to trump Watergate; Nixon is their Mephistopheles.
But by now only the most ardent Obama media flacks believe that some obscure bean counter in Cleveland singled out the president’s political adversaries during a campaign he was determined to win at any cost.
So confident has the president been about the media’s adoration that he has even joked in the past about auditing his enemies. He would surely like to reel that one back in, but why shouldn’t he have been confident? Before yesterday the hacks had run cover for every slipshod decision and lame excuse he has made.
John Bolton was right when he said Benghazi has the potential to topple the administration; it would bring down any other presidency. It will not bring down this one though.
Heads will roll in the White House, and other places in the administration, to atone for what will eventually be admitted “mistakes.” Swords are being sharpened as I write for the fallers’ on to be. But Obama will survive.
Now that blood has been let the media can no longer ignore the story; the administrations blundering has embarrassed them. But that is a long way from driving a stake through Obama’s flagging second term.
Forget it. Obama will not be impeached. Whether he deserves it or not. I don’t want him impeached, but even if I did it will never happen. The liberal fringe would have you believe Republicans are salivating, but the GOP will never hang itself with the legacy of having given the boot to the first black president.
And you shouldn’t want it either. It is doubtful the republic could endure an Obama impeachment.
Barack Obama is the worst president in our history. He didn’t have to be, but he is. He set out to destroy the American dream because he is a socialist and believes the idea of “Imperialist America” at its core is bad. No matter how one couches the term (socialist is a media N-word) he is a leftist, far removed from anything most Americans recognize as democratic.
And that should be his legacy: Even if it were possible, he should not be impeached and drummed out of office; he should be known for who he is and what he tried and failed to accomplish.
