In an Op-ed in the Washington Post George Will said what should have been said publicly long ago but no one else had the courage to tell the truth about the first black U.S. President for fear of being called racist.
President Obama’s increasingly grandiose claims for presidential power are inversely proportional to his shriveling presidency.
Desperation fuels arrogance as, barely 200 days into the 1,462 days of his second term, his pantry of excuses for failure is bare, his domestic agenda is nonexistent and his foreign policy of empty rhetorical deadlines and red lines is floundering.
And at last week’s news conference he offered inconvenience as a justification for illegality.
Well written Mr. Will. Just be prepared to have your last five years income tax returns audited as retribution.
Gleaned from commenters:
Nixon never used Air Force One to constantly jet about the country campaigning for his agenda.
Nixon never bad-mouthed the American citizenry.
Nixon never openly embarrassed our allies.
Nixon never toured the world bowing and apologizing for America.
Nixon never invited 200 MD´s to the WH and forced them to wear white smocks for the cameras to help promote a disastrous bill.
Nixon never cancelled White House tours on the pretext of saving money while spending lavishly on his personal vacation.
Nixon never staged his re-election acceptance speech with hundreds of college-age students feverishly and incessantly waving American flags like wind-up dolls as the backdrop.
No one died from a Nixon miss step.
No one ever needed to question where he was born or to verify his college attendance.
Nixon´s WH staff didn’t need to prepare for drinking soiree’s with the elite of Hollywood (as well as the scum of Hollywood).
Nixon was a true intellect who didn’t need a teleprompter.
Nixon did, however, fire his Attorney General.
