Palin Challenges WashPost ‘Wusses’ to Cover Obama Like Nixon

28 July 2014 / 0 Comments

Sarah Palin issued a challenge to the Washington Post to do the same job investigating President Barack Obama as it did with President Richard Nixon during Watergate.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, the former Alaska governor pointed specifically to the IRS scandal. She said the missing 18½ minutes on the White House tapes from Nixon’s office pale in comparison to the “1.2 million minutes” of communications former IRS official Lois Lerner and other employees say were lost in various computer hard-drive crashes.

Lerner resigned over the scandal and has pleaded the Fifth Amendment before Congress. She headed up the division of the IRS that targeted conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status during the 2010 presidential election.

“You’ve allowed Obama to skate with his proclamation that absolutely no wrongdoing occurred at the IRS, ‘not even a smidgen,’” Palin wrote.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

She sure is.  Nixon had the Washington Press Corps so far up his ass all he could taste was cheap newsprint.  He could not make any appearance without reporters shouting questions at him about Watergate, the coverup and everything else.  It was the Press that built a National consensus to impeach Nixon, and that was finally what it took for him to resign.  Had he stayed, the House would have impeached him very quickly, and who knows what the Senate might have done then.  The Constitutional crisis was bad enough, but had Nixon decided to fight, it would have brought down the Country.

The press has been AWOL on Obama, and his regime is still out there using MSNBC as their preferred outlet for some of the most outrageous statements that would have shamed even Nixon....
