Gingrich compares Obama Benghazi consulate attack response to Watergate

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said Saturday that the Obama administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi should be a “bigger scandal than (former President) Nixon” because “no one died" at Watergate.

The comments, in a series of tweets Saturday sent to Gingrich's 1,477,000 Twitter followers, urge moderators in the remaining debates between President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney to press Obama on the Libya assault, which resulted in the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

“No one died at watergate! The Obama lies about Benghazi and Biden's deliberate lies Thursday night should be a bigger scandal than Nixon,” Gingrich tweeted.

 “It is clear the Obama team decided to have the Vice President lie about an event that killed four Americans including an ambassador,” he continued. “Now had over a month of dishonesty and coverup from Obama team about Benghazi. Getting to truth should be number one goal next two debates.”

In his vice presidential debate with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Thursday, Biden said Republican criticism of the administration’s response to the Libyan attack “a bunch of malarkey.”

Biden said the Obama administration did not immediately identify the attack as an act of terrorism because they were told otherwise by U.S. intelligence officials.

“That was exactly what we were told by the intelligence community,” Biden said. “As they learned more facts about exactly what happened, they changed their assessment.”

Biden also dinged Ryan for a vote to cut funding for the security of U.S. embassies abroad. 

“This lecture on embassy security -- the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for, number one,” he said. “So much for the embassy security piece.”

For his part, Ryan condemned the Libyan attacks as a sign of the “unraveling of the Obama foreign policy.

“This Benghazi issue would be a tragedy in and of itself, but unfortunately it's indicative of a broader problem,” he said.

The next time the Libyan consulate attacks can come up in a debate will be Oct. 16 when Obama and Romney meet at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.

Quoting lga1965:

And what is bs about the Congressional hearings into the whole tragedy?  Bet you're not even aware of them, now are you?  I know mainstream media isn't paying much attention to them, but I'm sure you can find plenty of information on them on line from several sources.  They all went nuts on Watergate, and have barely mentioned this.  The White House has been trying to cover up the whole thing since it happened.

YOU BLIND FOOL......it is a cover up but I can see you are a socialistic pig like Obama.

President Obama has emulated Lenin in striving to increase state control over such “commanding heights” of our economy as energy,health care, finance,and education,with smaller forays into food,transportation and undoubtedly some areas I am overlooking.

Besides mimicking some of Lenin’s policy strategies, Obama also has adopted Karl Marx’s strategies for gradually socializing an economy. Before I spell out the Marxian nature of many of Obama’s policies, let me emphasize that I am not calling Obama a “Marxist-Leninist, period.” “Marxist-Leninist” connotes the brutal totalitarian police state of the late, unlamented Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. There is no comparison between Barack Obama’s statism and the genocidal, gulag-riddled regime of the Soviet Communists. That being said, Obama’s economic program is taken directly, if not deliberately, from the Marxist-Leninist playbook, and on that basis one may say that Obama tends toward Marxist-Leninist economics. Besides adopting the Leninist strategy of seeking greater control over the commanding heights of the economy, if one reviews Marx’s 10-point platform for how to socialize a country’s economy in stages (“The Communist Manifesto,” chapter two), one finds that Team Obama and his congressional progressive allies have taken actions to further the goals laid out in all 10 of the planks in the Marx platform.

 well, alrighty then. I see it is perfectly fine for someone to pop in here in the middle of the night, at Cafe Mom ,and call me a "blind fool" and"a socialist pig", then compare our President to communist writers, proponents,leaders from the past.

That's inappropriate and rude ,MomGoneGreen. I have a few names in mind that I could call you but I won't because I try to be more polite , considerate and open-minded than you are.

that is actually pretty funny since you are usually one of the first ones to start the name calling.
