Personal attack against president driven by politics

Above the roar of anti-Obama sentiment, one question is being universally dodged. In the three areas of Benghazi, the IRS, and the AP subpoenas, no evidence has emerged showing either presidential authorization, aiding and abetting, or knowledge before the fact. Pure radical politics is the engine driving the personal attack against President Obama.

I represented James McCord in the Watergate burglary trial and can attest to the paranoia that gripped Washington at that time. Today’s political pouncers, seeking deja vu, lack any smoking gun. The merchants of partisanship shall find their moment in the sun to be brief and without legacy.
