I think the Nixon analogy is weak. I think he is morphing into Captain Queeg right before out eyes. I can already imagine Barry walking around the White House saying..........”Ahh, but the strawberries that’s... that’s where I had them. They laughed at me and made jokes but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt and with... geometric logic... that a duplicate key to the wardroom icebox DID exist, and I’d have produced that key if they hadn’t of pulled the Caine out of action. I, I, I know now they were only trying to protect some fellow officers”
I see Obama as more like Pinochet or Ceaucescu than Nixon.
Obama will fight to
the last bunker and go down buried by his own
I expect that like the little corporal he will
declare that the nation failed him by not living
up to his expectations and thus deserves what
I won’t be surprised to see some kind of a tantrum
at some point.
President Nixon wasn't always paranoid. He was gone after, tooth and nail, by lefties, from the time he went after stinking Commies, whilst in the House and with full,never ending throttle, once he ran against Helen Gahagan Douglas and beat her ( using pink....standing for PINKO, which she was )for the Senate. That kind of vilification wears a person down, after many decades of pillorying.
