Nixon was a good guy. Reminds me of Bishop Rmoney, but for the lack of good looks and abundance of personality, although Nixon was a Quaker and Bishop Rmoney a high priest in the Mormon Temple.

OMG, did you listen to the tape? They could change the dates and names and be talking about the Obama WH. Obama began his enemies list in his first couple of months, and is currently immersed in a controversy that demonstrates his group was willing to compromise national security to improve his image.

I called it during the primaries when his group savaged Hilary to steal a few votes. Obama and his mob will make Nixon look like a piker.

Any news is beteer than the news of how bad obama is doing,how bad the economy is doing,how corrupt his A.G. is(imagine Holder appointing attorneys,who must report to Holder and are subordinate to Holder,to investigate Holder?).Who gives a damn about Watergate at this time with a Presidential campaign brewing?CBS does.Reality must be an aweful pill to swallow for the liberal news media.

Obama’s Watergate: Officials cover up culpability for gun smuggling

By Jeffrey T. Kuhner
Thursday, December 15, 2011

A year ago this week, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered. He died protecting his country from brutal Mexican gangsters. Two AK-47 assault rifles were found at his death site. We now know the horrifying truth: Agent Terry was killed by weapons that were part of an illegal Obama administration operation to smuggle arms to the dangerous drug cartels. He was a victim of his own government. This is not only a major scandal; it is a high crime that potentially reaches all the way to the White House, implicating senior officials. It is President Obama’s Watergate.

Operation Fast and Furious was run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and overseen by the Justice Department. It started under the leadership of Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Fast and Furious enabled straw gun purchases from licensed dealers in Arizona, in which more than 2,000 weapons were smuggled to Mexican drug kingpins. ATF claims it was seeking to track the weapons as part of a larger crackdown on the growing violence in the Southwest. Instead, ATF effectively has armed murderous gangs. About 300 Mexicans have been killed by Fast and Furious weapons. More than 1,400 guns remain lost. Agent Terry likely will not be the last U.S. casualty.

Mr. Holder insists he was unaware of what took place until after media reports of the scandal appeared in early 2011. This is false. Such a vast operation only could have occurred with the full knowledge and consent of senior administration officials. Massive gun-running and smuggling is not carried out by low-level ATF bureaucrats unless there is authorization from the top. There is a systematic cover-up.

Congressional Republicans, however, are beginning to shed light on the scandal. Led by Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Rep. Darrell Issa of California, a congressional probe is exposing the Justice Department’s rampant criminality and deliberate stonewalling. Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer, who heads the department’s criminal division, helped craft a February letter to Congress that denied ATF had ever walked guns into Mexico. Yet, under pressure from congressional investigators, the department later admitted that Mr. Breuer knew about ATF gun-smuggling as far back as April 2010. In other words, Mr. Breuer has been misleading Congress. He should resign - or be fired.

Obama Speech Gets Thumbs Down From Political Press? Why Not? Lots of words, no action, no execution, no plans…………….no experience.

Biden Praises 'Arab Spring' on Same Day Egypt Dissolves Parliament...
