Obama is the closest thing to
Nixon we´ve seen in 40 years

Fox News, by Patrick Caddell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/1/2013 9:55:09 PM

It is not without a bit of irony that, in the 40 years since the explosion of the Watergate story, Bob Woodward would again be under attack from the White House for trying to tell the truth. But this time the attack is coming from a Democrat. While Barack Obama may not share the Nixon pedigree, he and his White House are the closest thing to the Nixon regime of any that we have seen since then -- both in the extent of their paranoia and their willingness to suppress the truth

Comments:
While I agree with most of what he has to say, I think Nixon was a piker compared to 0bama. He is a whole new breed of cat, the likes of which this country has never seen, and that would include the reprehensible horn dog Clinton. Nixon did not have designs on destroying this country. 0bama is well on his way.

What #1 said...and he was a president totally consumed with the survival of our country for generations to come given the threat we faced from two major communist powers...the media played a leading role in that coup...

I like Pat Caddell generally, but this article is moronic. The most anti-American-corrupt-president-in history should never have his name mentioned in the same sentence as President Nixon who was a Patriot and loved this country! Do they really want to discuss the "enemy´s list" of Nixon and compare it to the thuggery going on the W.H. now? I think not. BTW, President Nixon would have never allowed OUR Embassy employees to be killed by terrorists because he had to fly to Las Vegas the next day for a Fundraiser. Watergate was a joke and a hatchet job by Bob Woodward and his fellow "scribes" at the WaPoop 40 years ago. Get serious.

Nixon knew how to govern. Even when he was wrong, as with wage/price controls, he governed, he didn´t campaign 24/7. He wasn´t a demagogue.

He´s not comparing accomplishments, patriotism, etc. He´s comparing the tone. Nixon did have an enemies list, he was paranoid, his staff did do everything it could to intimidate the press. Obama is doing the same thing. Only substitute narcissism for paranoia.

Nixon was a great man who should never have been forced to resign. Obama´s a loser who should never have been elected.

Nixon was backed into a corner and elected to resign for the good of the country because of the steady drumbeat of an orchestrated campaign dwelling on a second rate burgulary, and the attempt to cover it up and get back to the real business of governing...anyone keen on logic would wonder how the US wound up being governed by two unelected people a few months after President and VP stood for re-election...

Nixon was hated, with a white hot hate, by the "progressives" of his time because of this: Nixon was a staunch anti-communist. This hatred eventually led to the "progressives" bringing him down via a political burglary Nixon was not involved in but tried to cover-up. Obama is not a staunch anti-communist. He´s not anti-communist at all. And that´s exactly the "progressives" love him and are now doing all the cover-up work for him.

No, Mr. Caddell, Obama is not the closet thing to Nixon. Nixon had redeeming qualities, many of them. Obama does not, and this fraud of a president represents everything the patriotic Nixon was fighting against.

The Press hounded everyone who dared to be Nixon´s friend. Here in Florida, the Miami Herald ran, several times, pages and pages of so called "exposes" of a local banker Bebe Reboza (now deceased) insinuating that he might have, could have, maybe, did something. I read every word and they had nothing on Reboza because there was nothing to be had. If you only glanced at the headline and failed to read the two or three pages you thought there must be evidence. When Reboza died the Miami Herald published an obituary lauding Reboza for his honesty and charitable contributions. I wrote them a letter, that they of course did not publish.

Yes Nixon loved America while Obama dislikes America and Nixon was a competent leader who performed his presidential duties well while Obama is a campaigner who doesn´t do presidential duties (he leaves that to his entourage of psychophantic toadies) but recall what Pat Caddell is comparing here:

"he and his White House are the closest thing to the Nixon regime of any that we have seen since then -- both in the extent of their paranoia and their willingness to suppress the truth and push the boundaries of law.."

That´s true, Obama trusts no one but his toadies and he condones lawlessness (especially in ignoring the constitution) more than any president before him. Nixon broke the law because he was fearful the Democrats were out to get him but breaking the law qualifies that fear as paranoia (is the opposition ever not out to get the president?). And, of course, Nixon lied and Obama lies.


In law breaking and lie telling Obama surpasses Nixon (because his is a sustained effort) but Caddell is not far wrong.

Is it enough? Obama imposes sanctions

Fox News & Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/17/2014 12:12:28 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON – Faced with calls for a swift and stern reaction to Russia´s threatened annexation of Crimea, President Obama wielded his executive pen Monday morning, slapping seven in Vladimir Putin´s inner circle -- but not the Russian president himself -- with sanctions freezing their U.S. assets. But almost immediately, some criticized Obama´s response as not being enough to change Putin´s course. With Crimea voting Sunday to break off from Ukraine, Russia is poised to potentially annex the disputed peninsula -- and freezing U.S. assets of Putin cronies and barring them from traveling to the U.S. may have limited effect.

Colts owner James Irsay faces four felony counts after being arrested Sunday night by Carmel police on preliminary charges of driving under the influence and possession of a controlled substance, police said. Irsay drove a late-model silver Toyota Highlander at a slow rate of speed, stopped in the roadway and failed to signal a turn before police stopped him, Lt. Joe Bickel of the Carmel Police Department said in a release. "During the course of the investigation, Irsay subsequently failed several roadside field sobriety tests," Bickel said.

Thanks to Obamacare, Democrats just lost a special election in a Florida House district that President Obama won in 2012. So what do you think vulnerable Democrats in states and districts Obama lost in 2012 are thinking today? The problem is Democrats can’t run from Obama or Obamacare. Yes, the president is electoral kryptonite in 2014. But Democrats are caught in the Obama trap — unable to either embrace or repudiate their unpopular president and his unpopular health law. This is precisely the position vulnerable Republicans were in during the 2006 midterm elections, when Democrats retook control of Congress thanks to George W. Bush’s sinking poll numbers. Like

"We´re making it clear that there are consequences for their actions," Obama said in the White House briefing room.

Obama told Putin that the Crimea vote -- more than 95 percent favored joining Russia -- “violates the Ukrainian constitution and occurred under duress of Russian military intervention,” according to a White House readout of the call. “President Obama reiterated that a diplomatic resolution cannot be achieved while Russian military forces continue their incursions into Ukrainian territory and that the large-scale Russian

And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years.

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is
