Fox News' Political Insiders make some great points on the Obama Scandals
Fox News' Political Insiders on Scandals
This is one of my favorite shows. Pat Caddell is awesome, and I found
myself agreeing more than usual with Doug Schoen. Two excellent
points were made on the show (starting around 3:30 into the interview).
1) Why do we trust any agency, including the NSA, to investigate itself?
2) 2,700 hundred abuses just in the Washington, DC area and for every
violation there could be thousands of Americans who could be violated.
On another topic, Schoen argued that Nixon is a piker compared to Obama on
the abuse of power. One of the articles of impeachment against Nixon went
after him for "musing" about using the IRS to attack his enemies. Obama's
administration did more than Nixon even mused about.
Contrast this discussion with a recent editorial in the Washington Post.
The Post seems to want to argue that while he was clearly wrong in his
frequently repeated statements that there had been no abuses of power, they
are unwilling to say that Obama lied. The implication is that he may have
been frequently inaccurate, but the implication from the Post is that he
didn’t necessarily because he may not have known he was
not telling the truth.
The Fox News' Political Insiders are having none of this whitewashing.
They clearly argue that the press is covering up for Obama and that
Obama's lies are making it possible for him to completely undermine the
rule of law in the US.
