Bob Woodward Calls Obama Administration on Concealment and Lies
Posted by Steve Markowitz on November 16, 2013
As this Blog has reported, the mainstream media is on the path to ending its incestuous relationship and support of Barack Obama.
For us Baby Boomers who came of age during the Watergate scandal, Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward was an icon who outed the corruption of Richard Nixon and his administration. In late October during a panel on CBS’s Face the Nation, Woodward turned his scorn on President Obama and his administration, as seen in the video clip below. This includes Woodward’s statement: “They need to review the this secret world and its power in their government because you run into this rats nest of concealment and lies time and time again then and now. You get to a point where it’s what do you worry about? Secret governments.”
There is much in parallel between the presidencies of Richard Nixon and Barack Obama. Both were/are divisive and polarizing figures. Both showed/show signs of extreme narcissism. Both were elected to a second term by significant margins. Richard Nixon’s presidency unraveled because of actions he and his associates took prior to his second election victory. History is starting to be written for Barack Obama’s second term. The parallels seem to be growing.
