Skip to comments.White House: Barack Obama Is No Richard Nixon (reaction to Time Magazine/Joe Klein comparison)
Posted on 05/14/2013 11:05:42 AM PDT by drewh
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney denied that President Obamas administration bears any comparison to that of Richard Nixon, who resigned in the face of impeachment.
The people who make those kinds of comparisons need to check their history, Carney told reporters when asked about Nixon comparisons.
It is a reflection of the sort of rapid politicization of everything that you have that kind of commentary.
Times Joe Klein wrote that the IRSs targeting of conservative groups for inappropriate scrutiny put Obama on the same page as Richard Nixon
perhaps because the Nixon articles of impeachment included the charge that Nixon had used the IRS to initiate audits in a discriminatory fashion

Nixon didn’t let anybody get killed.
No he isn’t. He’s much worse.
No, obama is not Nixon, he’s worse!
Nobody died at Watergate.
Agreed. Obama is FAR FAR worse than Nixon.
And, when it became obvious the game was over, he resigned.
YES. He’s worse!
Nixon was anti-Communist.
I wish he WAS Richard Nixon.
It would be nice to have an American for President.
Right... Nixon was a citizen and legally elected.
Agreed! Obama is much, much worse than Nixon. No one died in Watergate.
He is right. Nixon was a better man and did not embrace the amount of loathing the gay man in the white house does for his country.
Nixon: Actually got elected without help from communists/leftists/and associated other dorks. Didn’t conceal birth records, academic records, passport, etc. etc.
Obama: Elected by the press, never had a real job or any credentials to be proud of, questionable birth, even more questionable parents, no real academic record trail, didn’t write his own books (containing provable lies about his background), somehow got into Harvard Law and edited their Law Review without ever having an article for us to read. Conceals his real birth records, academic records, passport, etc. etc.
Gosh, they are right. Obama is not Nixon.
No, Obama is certainly no Richard Nixon.
He is far, far worse in every single respect.
Now, who’s to say that Barack Milhouse 0bama is like Nixon?
Ditto to all the above. Nixon is George Washington compared to Zippy.
Indeed. Nixon was smarter, and didn't hate America.
