Senator Hints At Obama Impeachment ‘Most Egregious Cover-Up in American History’

The Bible says “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” Obama has been, quite possibly, the most arrogant man ever to occupy the White House. After all, no man before him ever had the temerity to claim that his election “was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”
This arrogance was not just a one-shot, barely-forgivable victory dance. During his four-plus years in office, Obama has gained a reputation as a man who has no friends, will not work with Congress, and views Republicans, not as partners in governing this nation, but as punching bags and scapegoats.
Thanks to a compliant media, however, Obama has been able to get away with this decidedly un-democratic attitude. Benghazi, though, may finally be what peels away the mask, revealing the proud, arrogant, dishonest man occupying America’s highest executive office. After the attacks, conservatives merely suspected the “official” story about a random riot sparked by a video. Now, though, we know that this “random riot” story was a lie.Thanks to testimony from credible witnesses, we know that the administration deliberately engaged in a massive cover-up to hide that Obama hadn’t “conquered” al Qaeda; to hide that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton refused to lift a finger to give the Benghazi consulate more security; and to hide that both Hillary and Obama ignored the 3 a.m. phone call during that long night of terror and blood. Obama went to bed early and took off the next morning to campaign in Las Vegas, all without ever calling the situation room. The only thing that he did do, as best as we can tell, was issue a formal order telling would-be rescuers to stand down.
In a radio interview that Senator James Inhofe (R., Okla.) gave on The Rusty Humpries Show, Inhofe said that there are enough facts available to subject President Obama to impeachment. He acknowledged that this won’t happen with a majority Democrat senate, but believes that, if Republicans can retake the Senate, impeachment should be on the table for something he characterized as a political cover-up that “is going to go down as most serious, most egregious cover-up in American history.”
When host Rusty Humpries asked Inhofe about the fall-out from the Benghazi scandal, Inhofe replied that “We may be starting to use the I-word before too long.” In response to Humphries’ follow-up question he clarified that he definitely meant “impeachment.”
Inhofe agreed with Humphries that the current Senate would never impeach the president but then said, in effect, that old sins cast long shadows, and that retribution could still arrive.
I’m not talking about it now. This is that could endure until after the ’14 election. This is not a short story. This is something that was re-discovered after eight months. [snip] This is clearly an orchestrated cover-up.
As always, the media is the wildcard. In 1973, a Democrat-leaning media pursued a Republican president who had committed a crime (although no lives were lost) and a cover-up. It’s very hard to imagine today’s lapdog media showing any moral backbone and pursuing a Democrat president who committed a crime that resulted in four dead Americans, and then engaged in an eight-month long cover-up that ended only when he was caught.
