Big Red Car here. Late on Tuesday night, I was surfing the ‘net when I came upon this video comparing the travails and scandals of Richard Milhous Nixon and Barack Hussein Obama. So similar as to be brothers, no?
The scandals of the Obama administration are piling up. While President Nixon was a one trick pony by comparison, President Obama is giving him a good run for his money.

It is worth noting that President Obama is arguably a Chicago Machine politician and his ability to handle several scandals at the same time — scandal multi-tasking, I guess one would call it — is really breathtaking. He has surrounded himself with a cast of liars — ready, willing and energetic liars — who have assisted him every step of the way.
On the other hand there are those who find the comparison unflattering reminding us that President Nixon had been a Congressman, Senator, Vice President and a World War II veteran before becoming an avowed — perhaps unavowed — crook.
President Obama was able to make the leap to unrepentant liar with much more speed and aplomb. This is both remarkable and sad.
In the end, it is America who suffers when the President is not an honest man.
