John McCain, Just So

An utterance from the senior Senator from the state of Arizona on the topic of the Benghazi scandal, with which it is difficult to disagree:

This president is either engaged in a massive cover-up deceiving the American people or he is so grossly incompetent that he is not qualified to be the commander in chief of our armed forces. It’s either one of them.

Which puts two questions forefront in my mind: (1) If — heaven forfend — Barack Obama is narrowly reelected, will his second term be dominated by a potentially debilitating scandal virtually from its inception? (2) If Mitt Romney emerges victorious, will we ever get to the bottom of what happened to our men in Libya?
