Mike Huckabee claims that the Benghazi cover-up will be the undoing of the Obama administration.
The former Arkansas governor and GOP presidential candidate said on his radio show today that President Obama will be unable to finish his second term in office as a result of what happened in Libya:
“I believe that before it’s all over, this president will not fill out his full term. I know that puts me on a limb, but this is not minor. When a president lies to the American people and is part of a cover-up, he cannot continue to govern. And as the facts come out, I think we’re going to see something startling. And before it’s over, I don’t think this president will finish his term unless somehow they can delay it in Congress past the next three and a half years.”
Added Huckabee about what could be in a sense Obama’s Watergate: “Now, here’s what I’m going to suggest will happen — as the information and facts begin to come out, it will become so obvious that there was a concerted and very, very deliberate attempt to mislead this country and its people, to lie to Congress, as well as to you.”
For what it’s worth, and your mileage may definitely vary on this one, psychic Blair Robertson — who claims to have a pretty good track record for accuracy — made a similar prediction (that Obama wouldn’t complete his second term) following Election Day 2012.
Four Americans were killed at the US embassy compound in Libya — Ambassador Christopher Stevens, embassy official Sean Smith, and security officers Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods (both former Navy SEALS) — when the Obama administration allegedly failed to send reinforcements despite pleas for help. According to diplomat Gregory Hicks, who will testify on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, a US Special Forces team was ready to go in Benghazi on a rescue and backup mission until they were inexplicably told to stand down. For months, the administration has been stonewalling congressional investigators trying to find out exactly what happened in the September 11, 2012 attack.
Benghazi finally seems to be receiving some attention from the mainstream media.
Do you think Mike Huckabee is making this prediction just to gain attention or does it have any basis?
Added: Mike Huckabee is considering dropping his radio show, which he broadcasts from a home studio in Florida: “Within the next month, I’ll decide if I want to continue it or not. I know we will, but it’s just such an incredibly intensive process that I really have to decide that I want to spend that kind of time …”
