Is Obama Using Nixon Tactics?

Is Obama Using Nixon Tactics?
UPI FILE
Richard Nixon kept a list of enemies.

Representative Darrel Issa (R-Calif.) likened President Barack Obama to former notoriously paranoid President Richard Nixon last week because Obama reportedly keeps an “enemies list.”

“Not since Richard Nixon have we seen a president who puts together an enemies list and has a whole team pursuing it,” Issa told the cast of “Fox and Friends.” “That’s what’s happened in this administration. It’s sad. It’s not the America I want to see going forward. I sincerely hope that after the election, regardless, the American people will have made a statement that they won’t tolerate this.”

Issa was referencing collusion between the left-wing political advocacy group Media Matters and the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice. The Daily Caller brought the relationship to light earlier this month reporting that Attorney General Eric Holder’s communications staff has collaborated with Media Matters for America “in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals plaguing Holder and America’s top law enforcement agency.”

The publication provided dozens of emails between Justice and Media Matters to support its revelation.

As of deadline of this article, Media Matters and Justice were both mum on the issue. There is a possibility, however, that the House Committee on Oversight and Government reform, which Issa chairs, will probe the relationship.

“I think the important point is, these people represent the culture that President Obama brought into Washington, a culture of division, a culture that embraces the concept of, the 1 percent is evil and somehow the rest of America just needs to…punish the 1 percent,” Issa said. “I guess I’m part of the 1 percent for purposes of their attack. So are you.”
