Can you or anyone really articulate what Watergate was actually about? It was all media driven to destroy a popular republican president who won reelection by a landslide, and, truth is, there really is no “there” there.
Yep I do. It was Nixon doing about 10% of what LBJ and JFK did to political opponents, regularly -- and with gusto. They enjoyed doing it!
Nixon was a political pussy cat compared to those two pricks, and everyone in the Washington establishment knew it.
Nixon's only sin in their minds was his proving that one of their favorite people (Alger Hiss) was both a liar and Joseph Stalin's stooge. The Washington establishment never forgave Nixon for embarrassing them like that. It took them 20 years to get him, but in the end, they did.
Mess with the establishment, (R's or D') and be prepared because they will try to kill you.
