Bad Day for Obama & Hillary Clinton: MSNBC Guest from the Daily Beast Columnist Michael Tomasky Says … Invoked “That Word That Starts With ‘I’” … Benghazi Scandal Makes White House “Look Terrible,” Possibly An “Impeachment Issue”

 

You know its bad for Barack Obama when the LIBS at MSNBS MSLSD MSNBC start bringing up “Impeachment” as a result of their Benghazi cover-up and Benghazigate.

Even the LEFT is at a loss for words and defense when it comes to the way the Obama White House has handled Benghazi before, during and after the Benghazi consulate attacks. The news that Benghazi talking points had been edited 12 times and scrubbed of all references of terrorism have left the LEFT in a quandary.  Just when you thought you had seen it all, even the ultra-liberal MSNBC folks appear to be using the “I” word when it comes to President Barack Obama and “impeachment” over the White House’s handling of the aftermath of the Benghazi terror attacks that left four Americans dead, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens. Playing politics games to win the 2012 presidential election, could come back to bite Obama. MSNBC, that has made a living off of defending, deflecting and just not covering Barack Obama’s disastrous presidency, both foreign and domestic, has now been forced to question the Obama presidency and even use such descriptive words as impeachment and compare his handling of Benghazi to ‘Watergate”. As Maggie’s Farm states, this is beginning to look much worse than “Watergate”. In fact, it is. No US ambassadors died during Watergate. Actually, no one died during Watergate, only political careers.

Unlike Watergate, an unremarkable political dirty trick with a dumb and unnecessary White House cover-up (if a handful of people had been fired it would have been a big nothing), in this case American public servants died seemingly because of State Dept and possibly White House incompetence or indifference, and both may have been complicit in an attempted cover-up a few weeks before a national election. Possibly the CIA too. People have been intimidated about speaking out, but maybe no longer.

It is not joust Barack Obama who is in trouble, but so is former Secretary of State and 2016 Democrat presidential nominee wannbe Hillary Clinton. She comes across looking terrible, possibly even worse than Obama. As Washington Post reporter Nia-Malika Henderson said, “I think, for Clinton, it looks Clintonian.” Yes she does. Hillary looks like all the worst parts of the Bill Clinton years, something that will not be lost by the GOP or Democrat primary challengers in 2016. The politicization of talking points when four Americans died is beyond disgustingly sick. Before, during and after, Clinton’s State Department failed miserably and looked to cover up … is that what the US needs as a president in 2016?

From Mediaite:

“This is quite the window into what is usually the hush-hush process about how to deal with these types of attacks and the spin that irrevocably comes afterwards,” NBC reporter Luke Russert opined.

“This is not good for the White House right now,” Russert said to BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith. “Does it stick?”

“Well, sure,” Smith replied. “They look terrible.”

Smith said that the emails indicate that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have been directly involved in the process of “scrubbing” references to Islamic terrorism from her department’s talking points.

“Does this become then an election politics thing?” Russert asked. He said that the Republican Party has been trying to link Clinton to the Benghazi scandal for some time.

The Daily Beast columnist Michael Tomasky said it does. He invoked “that word that starts with ‘I’” to describe the potentially significant political fallout that could result from the Benghazi scandal.

“It becomes a potentially impeachment issue as long as the Republicans are in control of the House,” Tomasky added.

“I think, for Clinton, it looks Clintonian,” submitted Washington Post reporter Nia-Malika Henderson. “It also, I think, reminds us that there is only one person that the far right-wing hates more than Obama, and that’s Hillary Clinton.”

      More crazy, right-wing wishful thinking. This happened at a CIA facility, under CIA auspices, and thus the draft talking points that have these whiny, crybaby, bloodthirsty Republicans wetting their diapers were CIA drafts.

      So why didn’t they call anybody from the CIA? Because Republicans are terrified of of an old, retired white woman named Hillary Clinton (which is so pathetic) and desperate to turn her into Richard Nixon because the American people know and respect her. Americans have more and more reason every day to note that Republicans are crazy nuts. Jon Stewat pegged them when he ripped apart House Republicans last night on his show: the entire world is laughing at the GOP.

      The American people watched — in real time — protests erupt around the world at American embassies and facilities on Sept 11. The Benghazi incident was originally thought to be amongst those protests, giving conflicting early reports. Obama called it “terror” the very next day. Hillary took responsibility and implemented recommended changes months ago. The CIA circulated drafts of talking points, received comments and suggestions, and came up with a final draft. This doesn’t show a cover-up, it shows as further investigation sharpened the details, opinions change. That’s the difference between Democrats and Republicans: when the facts change, Democrats change their opinions. Republican crazies are impervious to facts.

      Americans already know all this. It’s only right-wing nutjobs like Rand Paul and House Republicans and Teabaggers who don’t get it. You ask a Republican was exactly they think was being covered up: they don’t even know. Even if the Obama Administration had all the details on the day of, Republican sickos would find something to scream and whine about.

      Wasting taxpayer money and time, as usual. Hillary will be elected in 2016 because Republicans are not fit to govern — the Benghazi witch hunt proves it. Voters will no more fall for this nuttery than they fell for their “unskewed polls” claptrap.

      Give me a friggin break, because Jon Stewart is some how a respected journalist. Good grief, why didn’t you reference Bill Maher?
      You are a pathetic excuse that you could care less about what happened to 4 Americans, Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Tyrone S. Woods. Instead you would rather defend the actions of a fools like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama who screwed up before, during and after the Benghazi terror attacks. These two idiots refused to understand the terror threats even when they were warned and asked for more security.

      Both have shown that they do not deserve to be Commanders in Chief as they do not have what it takes to protect. Instead they would rather play politics with the lives of Americans. SICK!

      Obama and Hillary lied and 4 Americans DIED!
