Five Reasons the Comey Affair Is Worse Than Watergate

Those who pay attention, will notice that it's always Republicans doing this shtuff.



Today’s party lineup in the Senate is of course 52–48, in favor of the Republicans. Thus a total of three Republican senators have it within their power to change history, by insisting on an honest, independent investigation of what the Russians have been up to and how the mechanics of American democracy can best defend themselves. (To spell it out, three Republicans could join the 48 Democrats and Independents already calling for investigations, and constitute a Senate majority to empower a genuinely independent inquiry.) So far they have fallen in line with their party’s leader, Mitch McConnell, who will be known in history (https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2011/01/strict-obstructionist/308344/) for favoring party above all else.

The difference, of course, is that Nixon was highly intelligent, subtle, competent, and actually did a very good job as president in some respects. THe EPA was established during his presidency, for example. His own demons brought him down, but Trump is far, far worse.

Yup.

Nixon made some pretense of battling his demons, Trump gives his free rein.

And you will also notice that about half of the voters fail to see this in any way, shape or form.

Bengazi, Bengazi, Bengazi,.... (well, you know the nonsense!). Distract, anger, divide.

Yes. About half of those who bothered to vote.

I believe Trump will be a wake-up call for MILLIONS of people.

Yup. Nixon made some pretense of battling his demons, Trump gives his free rein.He doesn't realize that they're demons. I could almost feel sorry for him if he didn't have the potential to do such terrible harm.

And Frodo felt sorry for Gollum, as he plunged into the inferno.

Yer a good man, Keith.
