"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

The Regular Son is in High Dudgeon over Benghazi-gate!

Email from the Regular Son, age 15, over lunch at the local Jesuit HS:

One more political thought: Do you think most Americans could tell you why Nixon was impeached? Do you think they could tell you what Watergate really was? I highly doubt it. Watergate was a third-rate burglary and a botched, messy public relations affair. Dick Nixon was crucified by the MSM and essentially bullied out of office.

Fast forward to 2012: The most transparent administration in history just allowed a United States embassy in a red-hot Middle Eastern country to be burned to the ground and our ambassador to be murdered in cold blood. Forget Obama's tepid response to this outrage and his continual appeasement of radical Islam; the administration refused to even refer to it as an act of terror until weeks after the fact. Never mind that they had intelligence telling them that it was clearly a terrorist attack; anyone who doesn't have his head buried in the sand can see it was. It was a cover-up even more egregious than Nixon's. Couple that with this new thread about Ambassador Stevens' repeated pleas for increased security and writing in his diary that he feared for his life, and the Islamists didn't kill Stevens. The Obama administration did. There ought to be impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives as we speak.
