You’ll have to click through for most of the links, but I want to highlight George Will’s, “This is as bad as Watergate and Iran/Contra!”
Watergate was a hated POTUS doing what previous POTUSes had done except in the 70s the media went all out to get him. He won that election in a landslide, the bugging was unnecessary, but that’s what all pols used to do. The media just hated Nixon so it was the SCANDAL OF THE CENTURY!!!!!!!
As for Iran/Contra, not just No, not just No Way, but No Fucking Way.
Ronnie Raygun broke laws to help keep commies, the enemies of America if not the Democratic party, from taking over the countries south of us against the will of Congressional Democrats who, as in Vietnam and indeed, the whole Cold War, were rooting for the commies and helping them as much as possible.
The IRS scandal is a POTUS breaking the law to attack his domestic, political enemies.
Further, the previous two were driven by our fine media betters, this one is ignored by our media betters.
The only way they’re similar is if you’re a Beltway Insider where reality is what elitist jackholes think it is.
If what he’s trying to say is that they’re as big as the other two, no.
In the previous two, the media went all out on the attack, in this one the media’s gone all out to defend.
If you want to say that the IRS/Benghazi/Fast and Furious/Obamacare lies/more stuff that I don’t want to remember should be as big, yes.
But that’s not what’s happening.
