Obama Much More Dangerous Than Nixon
Nixon’s lawlessness was nowhere near as dangerous as is Obama’s. So I selected three articles.
Ten of America's top Constitutional experts published an article saying that Obama is worse than Nixon. One of them, a liberal wrote: "The painful fact is that Barack Obama is the president that Nixon always wanted to be."
"Four decades ago, Nixon was halted in his determined effort to create an "imperial presidency" with unilateral powers and privileges. In 2013, Obama wields those very same powers openly and without serious opposition. The success of Obama in acquiring the long-denied powers of Nixon is one of his most remarkable, if ignoble, accomplishments."
Roger Stone wrote: Nixon talked about using the IRS to harass his opponents but there is no evidence that he successfully did so. Yet Obama’s IRS has actually used the IRS to harass conservative groups.
The White House tapes show Nixon attempting to use the CIA to impede the FBI investigation into the Watergate break-in. This pales in comparison to the CIA spying on members of the US Senate charged with investigating the Agency's illegal activities.
Nixon’s impeachment included the charge that he evaded Congress’ sole authority to declare war by bombing Cambodia. Yet in Libya Obama said that only he had the inherent authority to decide what is a "war" and that no congressional approval was necessary. So, he bombed them.
While Nixon was known for his "Enemies List," the former head of the National Security Agency’s says that Obama also has an enemies list which has been used to take down perceived political enemies such as General Petraeus. During his re-election campaign Obama even brazenly posted his enemies list on-line as a not-so-subtle threat not to donate to his opponents.
Because of Obama’s iconic status on the left, liberals are silent as Obama shreds the Constitution in ways Richard Nixon would have marveled at. "Democrats scoff at the notion of the impeachment of Obama for crimes far more serious and reaching than of those committed by Richard Nixon."
Twenty violations of the law by Obama Administration
All of these sort of things can happen in a democracy when the press joins the dark side.
