It's a long tradition. Second-term Democratic Presidents are impeached by the Republican House. Kind of a hazing ritual.

Imagine if 9/11 (the original) happened under the Dems and we all found out they were warned and they ignored it, resulting in thousands of people being killed on THIS SOIL, then instead of going after OBL, Obama said "I don't really think about Bin Laden." Then he used that tragedy and the raw emotions of the American people to convince them that a country and leader having nothing to do with 9/11 was connected to OBL, then lied about the threat that country posed because his people cherry-picked info to get a war they've wanted since long before 9/11.
But yes, clearly Obama should be impeached for four American deaths in a country going through transition where the president of that country apologized for what happened and the people rose up to drive out the terrorist group they held responsible for those four American deaths.
Republicans are just pissed because they couldn't handle that it was their party and their guy who destroyed this country, so they project their hate and frustration for what BUSH did onto Obama, because they never had the guts to call out their own shithead.

Outside of a few impeachment-happy Republicans, all of the Americans who give a hairy rat's ass about Benghazi could be rounded up to breakdance drunk on the head of a pin and never risk bumping into one another.

He didn't get the information "right" as they see it and, as they see it, he didn't provide sufficient security not heeding requests.
The problems are that not getting the information right is silly. There in fact were protests with respect to the film, as there were in Cairo. No matter what happened, it was an act of terror, as Obama immediately stated.
The request for more security was not for Benghazi but for Tripoli. Moreover, even if security had been beefed up per the request it would not have prevented the tragedy.
In other words, they are gripping at straws. And they are not serving their party well. If they had half a brain among them, they would put their energies into revitalizing and modernizing the Republican party into a cogent, constructive force rather than one hellbent on winning no matter what harm they inflict on the nation, and they would reform their party to one representing and welcoming all Americans and recognizing all of our rights.
But they don't have half a brain between them.

Yes, but Faux News is leading the way. On the night the East Coast was being decimated, they chose to spend the entire evening talking about Benghazi. They are not a News Channel and I would love to see cable and satellite systems drop them, but it will never happen. Murdock owns the FCC.

I think Fox News stock went down so they may have less viewership than before. Hopefully.

And even at that, R7, are "not getting it right" and not providing requested security to an office in Libya really grounds for impeachment? Really?
These people don't get that this is yet another reason they lost on Tuesday. They are nuts.

Rove and Cheney got the CIA to do something bad in Benghazi and now they are freaked that nobody gave a damn and Obama was still elected.

Benghazi is only a story to desperate Republicans who were looking for some great crisis to throw President Obama off his lead during the election. It hardly compares to 9-11 delivered by the asleep at the wheel Bush, who was rewarded with another term! The average American has no idea what Benghazi even is. Their obsession with it is bizarre.

It's simple, stupid OP. Barrack Hoosane Osama is from Africa and so is Ben Gazzi and they are in cahoots so he needs to be impeached! And he's a socialist! And that has nothing to do with the fact that he is a negro, or colored or whatever you want to call it! So there!

Yeah, Faux is desperately trying to make Benghazi "happen" but it's not working.
Normally they have been able to bully other organizations into taking their hysterical blathering seriously. This time, people just think they're being stupid and irritating.

Because the President got through his entire first term without anything that could seriously be called a scandal (and because if he stepped out, Michelle would probably kick his ass), the right-wing is desperately flailing around for something it can CALL a scandal. And it's not sticking.

He's been a huge success. If there's one things Republicans can't stand it's a Democrat who's been a huge success.

#11 is correct. That was their October Surprise and it failed.
Truth is, the U.S. is so war-weary that another suicide bomber or "Afghani girl beaten in the town square for wearing make-up" is no longer of interest. We're saturated with those nasty towelheads and tired of spending our money on them.
Halliburton et al has made their money. Bring our soldiers home.

Nothing. The whole "campaign" is rather silly, but isn´t this like the third time they´ve insisted that he needed to be impeached over something or other? They got the taste of blood with Clinton and Lewinsky, and they can´t get it out of their system´s. They know that they can harass and impeach over bullshit, so it's what they do now instead of enacting valuable legislation or making effective change.

GOP Rep: I ‘Absolutely’ Voted To Cut Funding For Embassy Security
By Ben Armbruster on Oct 10, 2012 at 12:20 pm
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) said today that he voted to cut funding for U.S. embassy security amid political attacks from Republicans that the Obama administration did not do enough to secure the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya that was attacked last month.
Republicans and their allies have been trying to politicize the attack — which killed four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya — suggesting, without evidence, the Obama administration may have ignored intelligence that the attack was imminent, didn’t properly secure the Benghazi compound and is now trying to cover it up.
But hidden beneath the GOP campaign is the fact that House Republicans voted to cut nearly $300 million from the U.S. embassy security budget. When asked if he voted to cut the funds this morning on CNN, Chaffetz said, “Absolutely“:
O’BRIEN: Is it true that you voted to cut the funding for embassy security?
CHAFFETZ: Absolutely. Look, we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have — think about this — 15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, private army there for President Obama in Baghdad.
And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces? When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices how to prioritize this.

Amazing how MSNBC was talking about Benghazi yesterday in terms of cover up, throwing Hilary under the bus, etc. Perhaps the Obama lap dog network is finally waking up. When their reporter mentioned Watergate type cover up I thought I was hearing things.

Thanks R30. Thought that was interesting too. In 2016 Obama will back Biden, not Hillary.

It's time to end this circus. Why does noone pay attention? I said, "Impeachment is off the table." I demand that all impeachment talk be stopped immediately. That's not the way we do things. We're more civilized than that.

Of course not. They're smart enough to know when to call for impeachment. The Dems still haven't figured it out or Bush would have been impeached.
