Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for May 24, 2013
Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling The Truth About The Nixonian Presidency of Obama Obama: ...and please close the door on your way out. Aide: Yes, Mr. President. Obama: I thought he'd never leave. POOF Nixon: Now we can get down to business. Nixon: So! You should personally order burglaries, buggings, and IRS audits of your enemies! Obama: Hmm. Instead: if I discover that low-level IRS agents have been taking improper shortcuts in assessing the political purpose of charity groups, I'll fire the IRS chief. Nixon: Same thing! That's JUST as Nixonian! Nixon: Next, you should treasonously undermine a peace process! And order an illegal secret bombing campaign! Obama: Nah> How about if the state department changes the wording of a memo describing an attack on an embassy. Nixon: Same diff. Tomatoes, to-mah-toes. Nixon: Then, have your Justice Department illegally seize the telephone records of leak-reporting journalists. Obama: THAT I'll do! Except it's LEGAL now, and the opposition party has been criticizing me for not doing it ENOUGH! Nixon: LEGAL?! You disgust me! I'm going back to haunt Dick Cheney! Obama: Wait! You'll love my drone program! Nixon: Nixon out! Obama: Damn, THAT'S legal, too!
