he Republicans guilty of withholding money to protect our embassy personnel in Benghazi are still fantasizing about pinning the blame on President Obama.
Just as they got themselves all hot and bothered over Electoral College fantasies in the wake of their election defeat, thinking they could still somehow get the black man out of the White House, now they think they can send that black man to prison for a crime they committed even though they failed to impeach him as the scapegoat for their crime.
I guess the logic is, if you can’t get him now, get him later. Their buddy George W. Bush and his cronies Rumsfeld and Cheney, of course, can illegally invade and pillage countries and violate international law at a pace that can only be characterized as unholy (and get rich doing it), but Obama should go to prison because of something he did not do.
That pundit is, of course, Glenn Beck, who has made his livelihood out of wondering why the rest of us aren’t upset about fantasies taking place only inside his own head.
The tea-party site posted a Glenn Beck video from October in which the TV and radio host insisted a case for treason could be built against President Obama for his role in the attack of Sept. 11, 2012, in which armed Libyans captured and killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others at an American diplomatic mission in Benghazi.
“This president is lying to you about Benghazi in such spectacular fashion that I believe people will go to prison,” Beck said on the Blaze TV broadcast of his radio show. “This is impeachable; the president might go to prison for this one.”
