Gov. Palin: Buck stops with Obama; Worst abuse of power since Watergate
Posted by Dr. Fay on May 15, 2013
The Obama administration is embroiled in three scandals this week, with a CIA source hinting another shoe is about to drop. Governor Palin reminded Obama in this tweet that he is ultimately responsible.
Buck stops w/you,Mr. President. It's 3am, you missed the call. Last time we saw such misuse of power Hillary was asking the questions in '74—

Governor Palin did not link to the following article, but I thought it would provide some background to her reference to Hillary Clinton. I also think the question Hillary asked Nixon is an appropriate one to be asking the current President.
Hillary Clinton Fired From Watergate Committee for Fraud Ethics Violations
Hillary Clinton Fired From Watergate Committee for Fraud, Ethics Violations
Apr 2, 2008 in Politics
The former general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, who supervised Hillary during the Watergate investigation, says her history of lies and unethical behavior goes back farther – and goes much deeper – than anyone realizes.
‘A lifelong Democrat, Mr. Zeifman supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.’
“Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.’
Mr. Zeifman also had this to say about a Hillary campaign rally in Connecticut in early February of this year:
‘I have just seen Hillary Clinton and her former Yale law professor both in tears at a campaign rally here in my home state of Connecticut. Her tearful professor said how proud he was that his former student was likely to become our next President. Hillary responded in tears.’
‘My own reaction was of regret that, when I terminated her employment on the Nixon impeachment staff, I had not reported her unethical practices to the appropriate bar associations.’
This is no small potatoes, like the cattle futures dustoff. From Mr.Zeifman’s account, Hillary and others on the Committee, including former senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum – engaged in a seemingly implausible scheme to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation by stealing Judiciary Committee files on the only precedent case that could have stonewalled their plot and drafting a legal brief that, according to Mr. Ziefman, “was so fraudulent and ridiculous Hillary would have been disbarred if she had submitted it to a judge.”
Stay tuned, people. This one isn’t over. Not by a long shot.
