    Fail. Watergate and Iran/Contra were real. Plame was real but dwarfed by the other lies that got us into Iraq. Lewinsky and the IRS issue are bogus.

    A President committing perjury is a bogus issue? Possible abuse of power by a government agency is a bogus issue? Nixon’s involvement in Watergate was a bogus issue too until somebody dug into it.

    Your other scandals show a President who actually participated in their creation. With Obama, the IRS happened but he didn’t order it or try to cover it up.

    Maybe a little research?

    With Bush you could look at allowing 9-11, lying about WMD, letting an American city drown, nearly collapsing a world economy, stealing an election or two, etc.

    The cartoon is good because it reminds cons and libs that both parties have indulged in abuses of their power. The effort of so many to “excuse” their side as “not as bad as what those other people did”, is disingenuous at best.
    We don’t know if the Benghazi, IRS, or even the AP, will stick to Mr. Obama despite the nightly prayers of conservative legislators that they will.
    We DO know that both parties are PLAYING the American people with ‘scandals’, instead of doing ANY of the things for which they were elected.
    Every politician I heard of in the elections since 2008 said JOBS was the most important issue. But if you look back at what has happened since 2008, both sides have focused on ‘social issues’ and ‘hot button’ topics. The only success the two parties have had is in keeping liberal and conservative neighbors yelling at each other instead of at the real problem children, our congressmen and senators.

    How are they going to find time for Benghazigate, Fast & Furious-gate and IRS-gate in the 24-hour news cycle?!

    The last three are nothing compared to the first two.

    A) I really doubt Bush worried much about the Plame “incident”.
    B) Leaving Benghazi out tells me that Morin’s hardly worth following.

    @mikefive

    A president committing perjury for b—jobs in the white house is a bogus issue. Its not like he lied about WMD’s or anything like that.

    Warshrub’s goon should be much bigger (two wars, recession, anthrax attacks, etc.).

    You can add Benghazi to that list for Barry. More lies and more coverups.

    Mike5 is right on this one Legend.
    Lying under oath is a crime, no matter the degree. For the most powerful person in America to feel they can do so with impunity is a threat to our most basic liberties.
    Mr. Nixon said “If the president does it, then it isn’t illegal.” He abused power and lied and left office.
    Mr. Clinton should have admitted his mistake, apologized for it, and moved on. He deserved the impeachment not for moral turpitude but for lying under oath,
    There are worst things about which to lie, but as a crime, they are equal.
    That said, I’m glad he didn’t have to leave office and I really admire much of what he did before, during, and after his presidency.
    As far as WMDs go, Mr. Bush and Cheney have never been charged with anything in the USA and unless they land in one or two particular nations, they will probably never have to explain their reasoning in a public forum.
    The important thing is to have an objective intelligent investigation on these matters and then punish wrong doers and make it harder for people to do it again in the future.
    Since we have two parties running for elections in 2014 and 2016, we’ll probably get innuendo and accusations mixed with highly politicized hearings.
    I doubt we’ll hear too much about job creation or other important issues.
    Sadly,

    You’ve been gone too long, RV. Welcome back.
    You remind me of the lawyer who said that the best lawyers aren’t masters of the law, they are masters of the use of words. That was one reason that Aristotle admonished Greeks that just because something sounded true didn’t mean it was true.
    I’ll use another Clinton ‘truth’. “Yes, I smoked marijuana, but I didn’t inhale.”
    Glad he wasn’t under oath then. :)
    Anyway,
    Welcome back,
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Nor does receiving a BJ measure up to treason.
