The chorus of comparisons between President Obama and the only president to resign in disgrace is growing by the day, as the administration’s scandals appear to pile up.
Whether the comparisons are fair or not, columnist George Will perhaps led the charge — after citing the Article of Impeachment against President Nixon in an opinion piece this week.
Will recalled the line: “He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavored to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be initiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner.”
Scores of websites and blogs have since invoked the Nixon comparison, as did Sen. Orrin Hatch, who speaking to reporters about the IRS scandal said Tuesday, “I’ve never seen anything quite like this, except in the past during the Nixon years.”
