I don’t appear to be the only one predicting a Benghazi impeachment crusade against the president if he’s re-elected. A friend of Kevin Drum concurs:
“If Obama wins, you’ll soon start hearing the impeachment drumbeat building from Fox News types over Benghazi. They’ll go through the usual period of finger-pointing and disappointment, but it will quickly shift to a full-throated movement to re-focus their rage on Obama, and Benghazi will be the rallying cry. Trust me. I know these people. It’s not going to take that long.”
Any mention of the dozen-plus Bush era attacks on U.S. consulates as a point of comparison will be dismissed by the Republicans as another example of the left’s Bush Derangement Syndrome even though it’s a perfectly valid comparison.
