KyngNothing: Republicans and 'conservative media' spend all weekend comparing Obama to Nixon.On Monday, they google "Obama Nixon" and spend all week righting articles about how "people" are making the comparison.And in the end, we're no closer to finding out what really happened, or why it's a scandal.
KyngNothing: Holy hell, I meant "writing"...
zez: Milhous?[i3.kym-cdn.com image 300x300]
Jackson Herring: No evidence has been unearthed connecting Obama, or anyone under his direction, to illicit activities. But the absence of criminality isn't the only test here. Nixon's "enemies," at least in his mind, also included vast swaths of the Fourth Estate. That apparently is how the current president operates, too.Wow what a piece of shiat
Soup4Bonnie: The link Dusk posted in the other thread should have stopped that conversation cold, and I expect it will be just as futile in this thread, but some of you may read it.http://www.nybooks.com/blogs/nyrblog/2013/may/18/why-obama-is-not-nix o n/But, yeah, hey, sure. Nixon. Why not? Nobody was buying that socialist Kenyan stuff anyway.
Corvus: I love how republicans have to add "Gate" to their made up "scandals" for democrats so you don't actually look at the details and just go "Look it has 'gate' on the end, it MUST be a scandal!" This is the same thing "Look we are comparing him to Nixon, he then MUST be guilty!!"It's what you do in advertising you put things together to associate them even if there is no proof. It's pure propaganda 101.

Outrageous Muff: Obama is more like Reagan since he has no idea what's coming on in his administration.
Brian_of_Nazareth: For those who can't be bothered to click (and I wish I was one of you), I stopped reading when the article mentioned that there's no evidence that Obama or anyone under his authority did anything wrong, but absence of evidence for illicit activity isn't the only standard. I can't quote, because I can't imagine going back to that article, let alone reading enough of it to find the actual quote. Your mileage may vary, but if you're at all sensitive to insanity, you might want to pass on this one.Cheers.
Rapmaster2000: This is Obama's Teapot Dome.
cameroncrazy1984: An RCP link greenlighted with zero comments? I'm sure this one's a real winner, Admins.
Corvus: So then by the associative property Nixon was Hitler?
topcon: My father, Lou Cannon, covered the White House with distinction for the Washington PostThat's Lou S. Cannon, I presume.
bopis: I think liberals who use the term teabaggers are right there with conservatives who say things like "Barack HUSSEIN Obama".
aaronx: Are these farktards figuring that we've forgotten all the horrible things Nixon did?Nixon knew what he had done, and when he was told that there were enough votes in Congress to impeach him, he pulled the ripcord. There was no way he'd have survived a trial in the Senate, so he took the coward's exit.Nixon walked away from the only job he had ever really wanted because he was unwilling to defend himself at an impeachment. Then he claimed that he had been innocent the whole time.Assholes.
