The massacre stemmed from an inquiry into the notorious June 1972 break-in at the Watergate complex, in which five Nixon operatives were caught trying to bug the Democratic National Committee headquarters. Archibald Cox, a Harvard law professor and former U.S. solicitor general, was tapped to investigate the incident in May 1973. He soon clashed with the White House over Nixons refusal to release over 10 hours of secret Oval Office recordings, some of which implicated the president in the break-in

Nixon would roll over in his grave if he could see Obama doing all the crap he only dreamed of.
the truth is the DEM LBJ, JFK, FDR, ect. all did far more the Nixon ever did..
Maybe Nixon understood back then what he was up against with the Democrats.
The truth is that the dems did not want the republicans to know that they’d already bugged them.
The libs are STILL crying over the 18 1/2 minutes of erased tapes yet are quiet now that the IRS claims to have “lost” 2 years worth of emails from Lois Lerner.
According to the article, “more than 50,000 concerned citizens sent telegrams to Washington”, so that’s what we need to pressure Obama’s impeachment
Archibald Cox was a WASP snob.
Don’t forget WJC (i.e. William Jefferson Clinton)
We know that Obama lies.
Obama knows that we know that Obama lies.
He doesn’t care.
Because we have convinced Obama that we are cowards.
Not only that, the EPA (and other agencies?) have been busted using private (think Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.) email accounts to collude on attacks on political opponents.
A freedom of information request won’t turn up the dirt if it’s off government servers.
So far there is no leak that needs to be plugged in this administration.
How many of them belonged to CPUSA and were still bitter clingers over Alger Hiss’ prosecution?
Cox was solicitor general during the Kennedy administration and was a longtime Kennedy supporter. With Cox as the special prosecutor, you had a Kennedy man investigating the administration headed by JFK's arch-enemy Richard Nixon.
This would never have happened if Nixon hadn't forced out Richard Kleindienst as Attorney General back in March. Kleindienst, a Goldwater man, would never have hired Cox. Unfortunately, Nixon replaced Kleindienst with über-liberalElliot Richardson--a move that mystifies me.
The Obama administration is the mafia of the political world. There is NOTHING they won’t do to destroy the US.
It’s the Chicago (68) way. BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
Who was it said not long ago Obama is the president Nixon wanted to be.....
