Republicans, who hate President Obama with a white heat level of intensity, impeached President Bill Clinton for a lie under oath about getting a blow-job and have been searching for a reason to impeach Obama since he was "President elect," have managed to get the mainstream media to misunderestimate the political potential of the deaths of Americans in Benghazi and may be in position for an ambush attack regarding impeaching Obama.  

 

America's mainstream media's tendency to practice wolf pack journalism (led by Fox?) was operating at warp speed this week as all hands became obsessed with a Cleveland crime story, while the Republicans performed the chess moves needed to put the pieces on the playing board in place for achieving the ultimate goal of the political maneuvering regarding the investigation of the Benghazi debacle.

Would the Republicans be so disloyal as to move towards impeachment while the President was distracted by American involvement in a new war in the Middle East?   Doesn't folk wisdom advise that everything is fair in love, war, and politics?  

 

Realization of the ultimate political advantage of discovering deliberate lies regarding the events in Benghazi might explain the level of enthusiasm at Fox regarding the need for a full investigation into the back story about the handling of the events in Libya.   When sharks smell blood, it's a good idea not to get caught between them and the source because the concept of "feeding frenzy" is something you don't want to experience first hand.

If reporters and politicians still trade information in the "off the record" mode of communication, then all parties might realize the political potential to be found in revelations about Obama's whereabouts the night of the Benghazi events and thereby know that a headline grabbing search for the truth might be worth the effort, then a long replay similar to the Monica Lewinski circus may soon push the national discussion about guns off the top of the political agenda list.  

 

Where were the drones when the attack in Benghazi was happening?   Aren't drone strikes as readily available in Libya as the delivery of a certain brand of pizza is in the USA?  

 

The fact that the President's whereabouts for the night of September 11, 2012 isn't being reported, may mean that the Benghazi investigation may be a stealth way to introduce some embarrassing information into the news cycle without looking like it is just another political smear campaign.   If President Obama has to lie under oath about the particulars of his schedule for that night, the Republicans would, once again, be able to loudly proclaim their brand identity with family values while evoking echoes of the Clinton proceedings.

Wouldn't it be ironic if Congressman Mark Sanford, who was a leading critic of President Clinton's inability to manifest the family values embraced by the Republicans, regains his status as a leading guardian of public morality by speculating where President Obama was (and what he was possibly doing) on the night of September 11, 2012?

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
