Nixon and Obama: Like brothers from another mother

Published on May 28, 2013

” Many pundits and journalists, including CBS’ Bob Schieffer, have drawn parallels between the Obama White House’s handling of scandals plaguing the administration and Former President Nixon’s management of Watergate. We looked back in the archives to see just how close they were.”

George Will: Obama Could Be Impeached Over IRS Attacks On Tea Party

 

 

” George Will could be much better described as a respected member of the Republican establishment in D.C. than a bomb thrower; so when he starts hinting that Barack Obama could be impeached over the IRS persecution of Tea Party groups, it’s significant.

“The Tea Party people have known about this and were working on this,” Will continued. “But they said — it was just some odd underlings out in Cincinnati who did this and there was no political motive whatever involved. Now the question is, how stupid do they think we are? Just imagine, Donna Brazile, if the George W. Bush administration had an IRS underling, he’s out in Cincinnati, of course, saying we’re going to target groups with the word ‘progressive’ in their title. We’d have all hell breaking loose.”

Will noted that one of the items in the 1973 impeachment articles of then-President Richard Nixon, which ultimately led to his resignation, described the Nixon administration’s use of the power of income tax audits in a “discriminatory matter.” “

Inhofe: Benghazi Cover-Up Bigger Than Watergate, Iran-Contra

 

 

” “I have made a study of different cover-ups – the Pentagon Papers, Watergate and Iran-Contra. I’ve never seen anything like it. I think this is probably the greatest cover-up, in my memory anyway,” the Oklahoma Republican said in an interview Saturday night on Fox News.

Republican senators John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire said Friday that the State Department report does not address questions about the role of Cabinet officials in responding to the assault that night. “

Careers have ended over less than the administration cover-up

Professor Hanson lays it out …

  ” We have had ambassadors murdered abroad before, but we have never seen anything quite like the tragic fate of Chris Stevens. Amid all the controversy over
Libya, we have lost sight of the human —and often horrific — story of Benghazi: a U.S. ambassador attacked, cut off and killed alone, after being abused by frenzied terrorists, and a second member of the embassy staff murdered, as two American
private citizens rushed to the rescue, heroically warding off Islamist hit teams, until they were overwhelmed and also killed.

  Seven weeks after the tragedy in Benghazi, new government narratives just keep appearing, as various branches of government point the finger at one another. Now the president insists that “the
minute” he “found out what was going on” he gave “very clear directives” to “make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to.” The
secretary of defense argues that he knew too little to send in military forces to save the post. Meanwhile, we are hearing from other sources that the beleaguered compound in extremis was denied help on three separate occasions, and there are still more contradictory accounts.

  When the government systematically misleads and cannot establish a believable narrative, almost everyone involved is
eventually tarred. The final chart of those officials in the Nixon White House who were devoured by Watergate was vast — and so
it is becoming with the disaster in Libya. If we have learned anything from Watergate and Iran-Contra, it is that the longer officials deceive and obfuscate, the greater the number of wrecked careers and
reputations. “

Scandal ? What Scandal ?

 NO BODY COUNT FROM WATERGATE BUT HUNDREDS DEAD FROM FAST AND FURIOUS

 

 

  ” Watergate is arguably the most sinister crime a Democrat can find to present to the American people when trying to silence a Republican. But it pales in comparison to the lies, illegal gun sales, weapons trafficking, and wholesale slaughter of innocents we’ve seen as a result of Fast and Furious.

Think about it — Watergate was a break-in, the goal of which was secure some “dirt” on Democrats to help Richard Nixon during his re-election bid in 1972. Nixon, the man vilified for it, didn’t even know about it until after the break-in had already happened, and his crime was covering it up once he learned of it.

He had to resign to avoid being impeached for covering up a break-in in which no one was physically harmed.”
