They don't go all over again remember Richard Nixon big reelection right that a big -- Watergate did -- And not -- two years later forced amount.
Now Mike Huckabee says another scandal -- -- another president and the former Arkansas governor says it's gonna end up the same way.
Been godsey will -- to this president what Watergate did -- that president.
For Savimbi is coming up former -- sports term is up governor you really think that's likely.
-- I think it is -- very possible and if he doesn't end up.
Either being forced to resign are being impeached and tried to the senate.
I think there's a good possibility that he will be so damaged by the revelations have -- Ghazi.
That he will be not just a lame duck but pretty much a dead duck when it comes to being able to govern.
This is a far more serious situation I think and the press would like to believe it is but when you have people all the way to the top who knew.
That there were cries for help coming out of an embassy and an ambassador.
Pleading for assistance.
And nobody moved.
The revelations that will start tomorrow all I think are going to be very very damaging.
Up and down this administration.
You know governor I would say that -- -- in that respect that there's a lot here that the media should pounce on.
But -- -- had a -- almost a Rollins has to go way after Richard Nixon.
I don't know at least at this point if it has the same enthusiasm to go after this president.
Well no they don't have the same enthusiasm to go after men and true the media wanted to bring Nixon down that's that's unquestionable.
But there's going to be some issues here that are different than Watergate.
In Watergate it was essentially.
The third rate bungled burglary that was the narrative.
In an election year but it turned out that the real crime was not the burglary itself.
It was the lies and the cover and it's right in this case we have lies and we have cover up we have something else.
We have four dead Americans including the US ambassador.
And if the testimony shows that they were giving plenty of warning that there was reason to believe that al-Qaeda was present.
If they'd beg for their lives the night of their murders.
And this was treated as something that was not politically helpful.
Then I just don't see even the press who -- him.
How can they ignore this and you know we've never really found out exactly what was the president doing that night.
And it wasn't that he.
You know was overly engrossed -- because the next day he went out to the West Coast for a fund raising tour.
So I do think that that all of the talk for example last week when the president acted like he had no idea there were people who were willing to talk.
And had been told not to Jay Carney repeated that.
On its face that's preposterous and I think we're gonna find out more starting tomorrow.
Well there was a lot we don't know I mean and I've heard some Democrats governors said that that trip out to Vegas.
Confirms that you didn't know because he certainly would have -- -- the magazine today -- now who knows but there's another issue that comes up here about proving a president lied.
Or a distorted something and that's when it gets a little tricky button and you have Richard Dickson caught on tape those infamous tapes.
That that did -- in armed they might not be so.
Easy here what do you think about.
Well I don't think he was -- foolish enough to install a taping system.
The records his every utterance.
But they're good they're clearly going to be some phone records at the White House the question is how much of this material was going to be able to to come forth.
And we don't know but.
For the president to say for seventeen days that this was the result -- -- spontaneous -- it just popped up in just happen to have on their shoulders some.
-- -- agree grenades.
That in itself is laughable on its face and for them to continue to trot out the UN ambassador Susan Rice saying it was his reaction to a video.
Now we know from inside some of the documents that frankly Fox News staff has done a great job in reporting.
Hi Alex obligated very beginning right now -- -- other news organizations to -- as -- but a lot depends on this first whistle blower.
To be to be credible right to come across as someone whose evidence.
And words are gonna be damning and.
Well it is and they sure are people who are.
Career civil service people these are not political appointees -- -- these are what I used to call and state government the mechanics the people who they didn't care -- -- border Chevrolet their job was to work hard not to Sally.
And that's what these folks do and and there are I I think they're gonna show their outrage and there.
That nobody asked them to come forward early on.
It's just that governor.
-- -- -- -- -- Thank you -- my -- of it.
