You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that Democrats get a pass by the press when they break the law or violate rules of ethics. For starters we can go back to John Kennedy. His mafia connections, sexual liaisons with hundreds of women, including mafia mistresses, illegal wiretaps, pairing the mafia with the CIA. Then there was his brother Ted who moved heaven and earth to cover-up, with the help of the media, his negligence and cowardice in the drowning of Mary Jo Kapechne in 1969. Bill Clinton's many scandals as Governor of Arkansas that carried over into his presidency. The violent rape of Juanita Broderick while he was Attorney General, his sexual addiction, Whitewater, drug use, Troopergate, sexual harrassment of Paula Jones and Kathleen Wiley. Perjury and obstruction of justice. I don't have enough room to list them all including the scandals of Hillary Clinton. Then there is our illustrious president Obama. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS audits of Conservative groups, and his association with ACORN. His radical upbringing, radical friends such as Bill Ayers Jeremiah Wright, and his Muslim upbringing. Again I don't have the space to list all of the Democrats involved in some kind of scandal.
When you compare Richard Nixon, the only president ever forced to resign over political scandal his sins seem light by comparison. Although the mainstream media gave up any claim to credibility years ago it still has tremendous influence and power. Nixon won the 1972 presidential election by one of the largest landslides in American history. The Watergate break-in occurred in June 1972 and had been reported on when it occurred but it had little impact on the 1972 election. In two short years the press was able to turn American opinion against Nixon to the point that he was forced out of office against the threat of impeachment. Nixon was his own worst enemy and his obsessive paranoia led to the Watergate cover-up.
I am convinced that Nixon didn't know about the Watergate break-in but he was so afraid of political embarrassment he ordered a cover-up which is an impeachable offense. Nixon was hated by the press and that hatred went all the way back to 1946 when Nixon won his first election to Congress. He beat Jerry Voorhis who was a very left leaning California Democratic Congressman. Nixon insinuated that Voorhis was a Communist sympathizer. Then in 1948 Nixon headed a HUAC or House on Un-American Activities Committee investigation of a popular member of Roosevelt and Truman's State Department, Alger Hiss. Hiss was accused of being a high level Soviet spy and was convicted of perjury. When the Soviet Union fell in 1989 records vindicated Nixon. Then in 1950 he ran for the Senate against a very left leaning Helen Douglas, wife of Hollywood star Melvin Douglas. Nixon implied that she was also a Communist sympathizer and he defeated her for the Senate. When Nixon ran for Vice-President in 1952 the press almost brought him down by falsely accusing him of having a slush fund. He was able to overcome this by convincing the American people that he was innocent in the famous Checkers speech.
Nixon was a very loyal and good Vice President under Eisenhower for two terms. Then in 1960 he lost to Kennedy in one of the closest elections in American history that was determined in states like Texas where LBJ helped pull off a close victory and Illinois where mafia boss Sam Giancana helped Kennedy win by voter fraud. Nixon was forever changed by this election and his paranoia of the Kennedy's led to the corruption of the Nixon White House and ultimately Watergate. If Democrats had the media scrutiny that Richard Nixon endured in his political life and Republicans like Reagan, George W. Bush, and others there is no way that many could ever get elected, much less stay in office. I know Clinton and Obama would never have been elected. If America ever falls the American press will deserve a special place in hell.
