Obama’s Correlations With Nixon

Consider the header another reason I did not vote on Election Day.

*From the Obama Administration: escalation of drones strikes and the war in Afghanistan, attacks on whistle blowers, condemnation of media reporting on US atrocities, and increased use of warrantless surveillance.

*From the Nixon Administration: escalation of the Vietnam War via carpet-bombing Cambodia, the attempted silencing of whistle blowers and the media, and warrantless spying.

These are the primary grievances the left has with the Nixon legacy, justifiable ones at that. So where’s the left’s outrage against Obama?

For the sake of fairness, Romney wouldn’t have been any better.

**UPDATE 5/15/13: Per Jonathan Turley, “Barack Obama is the president that Nixon always wanted to be.”
