From the brilliant mind of my friend, Mr. Alan Caruba. My commentary follows his great story.
It’s Not the Crime, but the Cover-Up
By Alan Caruba
I still recall the long months of the Watergate scandal that began with a botched break-in of the Democratic Party headquarters in Washington, D.C. on June 17, 1972. It was directed by a group of presidential operatives dubbed the “plumbers” inside the White House. No one died, but a number of the operatives, including the Attorney General, John Mitchell, went to jail!
As always, it is not the crime, but the cover-up that brought down the Nixon presidency. It was the testimony of John Dean III, a top aide to Nixon, who revealed the extent of the corruption that existed and Nixon’s complicity.
The initial revelations and subsequent congressional investigations did not lead to a swift application of the law. Indeed, it would not be until August 9, 1974 that Nixon would resign, the first and only President to do so.
Two years would pass and, if one applies this to the Obama presidency, that means he has some twenty-four months left in office, a period of time in which he can do a lot of damage, assuming events play out as they did in the 1970s. Obama’s conduct of the presidency is a stain on the office at this point and his personal conduct an insult to Americans struggling to find work, pay their mortgages, put their children through college, and maintain any faith in their government.
Regarding the Benghazi hearings, and the actions of our Congress; the hearing begins tomorrow, the mainstream media is trying to ignore these hearings, but that can’t be allowed to happen. Conservative BLOGGERS must keep the Benghazi story in front of the American people.
This hearing, its findings and final results, will either be the END of Obama and Clinton or will signal that the demise of America is a certainty.
DO NOT hesitate to contact your Congressman and tell them to get on board and to get VERY vocal in support of THE TRUTH being shown the light of day! The victims of Benghazi deserve the truth and the American people need to know the truth about Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Remember, these Congressmen and Senators work for US, you and me, make your feelings known.
We, THE PEOPLE!
Benghazigate is REAL and if you’re not angry you’re not paying attention.
