Worse than Watergate… in two ways…
I covered one of the two last year.
Here’s the other…
Who could have suspected that Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi would spark a national rejection of their party that outdid Watergate?
Richard Nixon resigned on August 9, 1974, and three months later, Democrats flipped:
3 seats in the US Senate
49 seats in the US House
628 seats in state legislatures
In the wake of Porkulus and Obamacare, Republicans flipped:
Obama has been called Nixonian before, but never in this context. When he charged to victory in 2008, Democrats thought they had unlocked the secret of marrying a progressive to the broad center of American politics. Instead, his radical agenda has alienated the center and leaves Democrats with a sharply reduced national base for their future.
