Obama Knee-Deep in Nixon-esque Scandal
Boston Herald ^ | May 13, 2013 | Joe Battenfeld

President Obama’s second-term campaign slogan was “Forward,” but instead we’ve got cover-ups, congressional investigations and the government persecution of political opponents and reporters.

That sounds like “backward” to me. All the way to, say, 1972.

Who would have guessed that just a few months into his second term, President Obama would be compared to Tricky Dick. And by a liberal Massachusetts Democrat — U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano.

Republicans could not even have scripted this one. The agency most hated by voters, the Internal Revenue Service, admits to going on a Nixonian witch hunt against Tea Party and conservative groups during the re-election campaign.

This is a story even the most partisan Massachusetts liberal cannot defend. It’s so bad that even Ed Markey is calling for heads to roll.

Now we learn that the Justice Department has secretly obtained the phone records of Associated Press reporters and editors in what appears to be an investigation of an AP story that disclosed details of a CIA operation that stopped a terrorist attack.

Going after the Tea Party is one thing, but the media? What an outrage. Who knows, the press may get so mad they won’t laugh at Obama’s jokes during the next White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

Just wonder if Obama has a pair of hipwaders and an endless supply of shovels and pitchforks. For all the crap he keeps trying to feed to the public that he is innocent of any wrongdoing.

I am to young to remember Nixon and Watergate, did not Nixon for 2 years claim innocence than when the issue ramped up and Impeachment proceedings went forward, Nixon resigned. The downfall of Nixon brought in Carter. (Yes i know ford was president between Nixon and Carter, but the resignation hurt the repubs)

Wrong. The Herald is owned by Gate House Media. The Boston Globe is owned by the Slimes.

To get some perspective on this, remember, the Boston Herald is owned by the New York Times.

The Times owns the Boston Globe

I've been dreaming, hoping, praying for years to seeing a headline like this,......

The Boston Herald is known for headlines like this.
Howie Carr writes for the Herald (talk-show host in Boston that helped coin the phrase for liberals as "Moonbats")
