I wasn’t sure if I should title this post as I did or “Put down the executive order pen and pick up the one for a letter of resignation.”
Admittedly, Nixon was a little before my time, but his resignation was a big deal. It must have been because growing up under Ronald Reagan, I still knew about it!
I’m not going to rehash something that has volumes of article, books, and blogs written about it because we all know what happened. Someone broke into a hotel room and bugged it. Essentially spying on the opposite party. So where is the outrage surrounding the use of the IRS to target conservatives? or the massive abuse of the TSA to spy on Americans without wiretaps?
Even though he was a competent president, Nixon was hated by the Democrats and was unpopular with the Republicans. Rather than dragging the entire nation through impeachment over a scandal much smaller than Obama’s have been, he did the honorable thing and resigned. Why does Obama insist that his agenda continue to be crammed down American’s throats? From an attempted cover up of Benghazi, to the IRS, to failed promises about Obamacare and Job Creation, all we get is one lie or broken promise after another. Obama is both a cover up artist and incompetent.
Obama’s promises aren’t the only thing being broken. The backs of the middle class families and workers are too as they are left further behind the 1% who are thriving because of Obamas economic policies. Many in the middle class couldn’t afford healthcare before Obamacare. Today, it is more expensive than ever and many have had to change their plans or their doctors. There’s no question after the last election that people en masse reject Obama and it is easy to understand why. His policies have failed from as far away as Iraq to your neighborhood doctor and the weight of his incompetence has fallen firmly on our backs.
Yes, Nixon made some bad choices and tried to cover up a scandal. But, he admitted it and showed us how classy a president could be by valuing truth, honor and America’s reputation more than his own presidency. It’s time for Obama to do the same. It is time to put an honorable person in the White House who will listen when the voters scream “NO!”
Help get the message out. We need to send a message to Obama to put down the executive order pen and write with resignation letter pen. Tell the lame duck congress that we are watching and we are not happy.
Would you help get the word out and share this article?
If you could measure scandals on a scale of watergates, Obama passed Nixon years ago. How far on the Watergate scale do we have to go before we impeach this guy?
