Here we go again. I see in a recent Internet poll by The Lima News that 70 percent of the people who responded to a question regarding the presidentís action (coverup?) on Benghazi say he should be impeached. Let those that understand civics and the constitution cast the first stone. In their eyes he already has one and a half strikes against him (heís a Democrat and half African-American; although this crowd thinks it is a full two strikes) and they usually lose interest in reading any part of the Constitution except the second amendment in the Bill of Rights.

My question to these people: Where was all this outrage when the previous president, George Bush, ignored his daily security brief and failed to react before over 3,000 people were slaughtered on the original 9/11? Then, when President Bush doubled-down on his mistake and attacked a sovereign country that had not attacked us; causing the deaths of more than 4,000 more Americans and countless injuries to thousands more, where was this crowd in calling for Bush to step down or be thrown out? There was stone-cold silence.

The tragedy of losing four Americans in Benghazi is horrific, but the real tragedy is the fact that when more money was needed to add security in Libya and other embassies and consulates around the world, the branch of government that appropriates money, the GOP-lead House of Representatives (see Article I; Section 7; U.S. Constitution) said no to the money that would have help save these 4 people. My advice to this crowd, for what itís worth, is to make sure you know where the blame should be placed before you grab the torches, pitch forks and ropes.
