Speaking on Fox News, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee compared the attack on the Libyan embassy in Benghazi to Watergate, and implied that maybe we should think about impeaching Obama:

"It was a planned, coordinated, orchestrated attack led by terrorists, terrorists, Bill," Huckabee said. "And this White House has to explain why it hasn’t owned up to that. Why it can’t say it ... Let's go back. Richard Nixon was forced out of office because he lied. And because he covered some stuff up. I'm going to be blunt and tell you this. Nobody died in Watergate. We have people who are dead because of this. There are questions to be answered and Americans ought to demand to get answers."
