As the madness of Benghazi Fever fully inflects the Republican Party, Sinn Fein member Peter King demanded a minute by minute account of President Obama's actions and whereabouts on September 11, 2012. Congressman King expressed his concern the Commander-in-Chief's job while in the Oval Office is to ensure the safety of Americans overseas in potential war zones.
Of course, as everyone knows US History from August 6, 2001
"We were certainly safe between 2000 and 2008. I don't remember any terrorist attacks on American soil during that period of time." - Eric Bolling
"We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush's term..." - Dana Perino.
"We inherited the most tragic attack on our own soil in our nation's history," - Mary Matalin.
"[George Bush] he inherited the negative impact of 9/11," - Sean Hannity
"What he should be doing is following the right things that Bush did, we had no domestic attacks under Bush," - Rudy GuilaniI think it's time we demand an hour by hour account of what George W. Bush was doing in the White House from when he declared Major Combat Operations over on May 1, 2003 (thanks to Hackwackers for reminding me of that ignoble anniversary) to the end of his White House residency on Jan 19, 2009.
But, I don't know how pages of brush-clearing, bike riding and Heh heh heh Pootie Poot! I could take.
Of course, as is the wont of Republicans they blame everyone else for their failures. Just like when the Bush Administration blamed the US Navy and crew of the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln for the Mission Accomplished banner.
"President Bush is well aware that the banner should have been much more specific, and said, Mission Accomplished For These Sailors Who Are On This Ship On Their Mission." - Dana Perino.But, with Congressman Trey Gowdy set to chair the Boehner Select Benghazi Committee the Impeachment of President Obama is, most likely, imminent.
"Well, I have evidence that not only are they hiding [Benghazi information], there is an intent to hide it," Trey Gowdy said of the Obama White House during a Friday interview on Fox News. "I can’t disclose that evidence yet, but I have evidence that there was a systematic, intentional decision to withhold certain documents from Congress."Don't expect the Republicans to be doing anything for the next 6 months other than continuously threatening Impeachment.
"Why wouldn’t we impeach this president for not protecting and defending Americans in the bloodbath, known as Benghazi? … This dereliction of duty as commander in chief demands your impeachment." - Jeanine Pirro on Faux News.Why wouldn't we Impeach a President for not protecting and defending Americans??? Thousands of Americans murdered in the World Trade Towers and a tens of thousands of Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen in Iraq killed and wounded wonder the same thing...
