OH ED PLEASE impeached for what it's not like he lied under oath about this incident.He thinks the rethugs are so radical that there leading to this with all this investigation I disagree if they try and impeach this President it will be the end of the republican party.

The republicans will be in trouble over their lies, breach of security, and planned coup.

10. Ditto

The Puke and Bagger Party are virtually suicidal.

They DO NOT care what the rest of us think. Their "bubble" is so rock hard and clouded, that they don't even know that "we" exist.

I believe, that we will hear "impeachment" multiple times in the next 4 years. And if not Benghazi, then something else.

no, I wasn't suggesting Ed himself was calling for impeachment.

I am suggesting he is making another big deal out of nothing and getting people excited Over The Wrong Things, Again.

13. I still don't get Benghazi as a republican talking point

now with the girlfriend spilling the beans about the CIA doing things behind the President's back, it seems to me it is really not a good one for them. I think they will be backing away soon as more of this mess is revealed. They are going to wish the President cleaned up their mess without all this publicity. Bengahazi is looking more and more like a neo-con last end run around the President. He is letting the chips fall now.

and, the CIA doing things behind the president's back isn't a Fox News talking point. Right now, they're still saying it's a coverup that more didn't come out before the election.

17. Cantor

If the girlfriend problem dredged up anything that could have helped the Repukes then Cantor wouldn't have sat on it before the election after his personal FBI informant came to him about it. What on earth kept him quiet???? He wouldn't have been if there had been something damaging to the President revealed. My guess is the opposite.

This might be one that's getting away from the Republicans, taking on a life of its own with the Baggers and the people that drool all day in front of Fux Noise.

didn't Cantor come forward if there was something truly damaging to the president? The Rs are desperate.
Coverup , impeachment, and they are even being sympathetic to the general. " he was human". I wish they would be fair enough to blast this guy like they did to Edwards. Fair and balanced -- right?

41. It doesn't matter what any of the facts are. They will make them up.

And there will be four whole long years of this unless the media actually treats them like the scumming liars they are and not pick up their talking points and run with them on their shows like they were legitimate stories.

and this means you Ed, Tweets, Rach and all the 'good guys'.

Soledad O'Brien will be happily busy tho, she's not afraid.

15. If there was evidence that Obama lied under oath

or did something else illegal, Republicans would have already started the impeachment process.

However, I don't see it happening over Benghazi unless something else big comes out.

18. Impeachment is just the filing of charges.

Settle down folks. The Rs probably will impeach Obama, as a political stunt. The House then presents their case before the Senate, who will no doubt find Obama not guilty. Republicans will make jack-asses of themselves, as usual. Bring it on.

And, some of them were screaming about impeachment well before Benghazi. It's the same old shit from these assholes. They've been digging for a blue dress since Jan. 20, 2008. Ed pointing out what they are doing is not Ed saying the President WILL be impeached.

27. Let them try

If they dig too deeply into it they might find that that anti-muslim film which led to all the protest in many countries in the Middle East was produced by a mysterious ex-con who secured funding, equipment, production people, production location, actors, video translation to Arabic, video posting to YouTube, and the alerting of the Arab media of its existence online, was done all within two months of the producer getting out of jail. All of that is just not possible for a just-out-of-jail ex-con without huge monetary backing by someone. And Romney held a press conference to bash the President before the smoke even cleared in Libya. Seems he had been primed to do this to gain electoral advantage because his little press conference (ending with a smirk on his face) came only two, I repeat, two minutes after Secretary Clinton went on the air to give the info that the State Department had on the on-going incident. Where did Romney get the information. All this seems, including Romney's timing of his little smirking attack on the administration, too coordinated to just be coincidence. I say let them keep digging and they might find links to right wingers with SuperPac money who were so determined to win the election that anything was fair game in damaging the President, with a few deaths being just collateral damage. And that video producer, by the way, has been bum rushed back to jail on other charges. Seems someone doesn't want him available to investigative reporters. I wonder why?

They are always up to no good, and often engage in operations without the permission of the President. They've been doing this since the days of Eisenhower & Kennedy, and we know how things ended up for the latter.

37. Unless they can find a semen stained dress, they'll probably pathetically flog Benghazi..

I mean, they sure as shit don't want to talk about the intellectually bankrupt mess that is their party.

OTOH, i'm sure. Few of them remember that shit didn't work out too well or them the last time they tried it.

And interestingly enough, our "disgraced, impeached" ex president is more popular than ever, and helped get the current one reelected- while their last president spent the campaign in an undisclosed location.

They are desperate. I don't think they are thinking at all rationally (not like this should surprise us) about how the American people would react to another preposterous, expensive, drawn-out legal process that would stall any efforts at economic recovery.
