Yes, yes, it’s been a long time since POTUS 38, Richard Nixon, was driven from office in 1974. A long time in DC is not a long time. We live the legacy and it will recur.
The absurd obstructionism of the current Congress is just one manifestation of Republicans trying desperately, pathetically to get back at Dems for Tricky Dick. Another and equally obvious bit of revenge was the impeachment of POTUS 42, Bill Clinton. Sure, he accepted fellatio from a 20-something intern and then lied about it, but it was about Nixon’s disgrace. If the GOP in Congress can’t drive the Prez from office, at least they can taint him. Puerile…
We see it now in the obstructionist GOP-controlled Congress, pledging by leadership first to make POTUS 44 Barack Obama a one-term leader (failed, little boys) and then to prevent any major legislation (failed even worse, tykes).
We’d like to think that the next time Dems take control of Congress that they’d be smarter and more mature about it all.Don’t count on that. Revenge politics is a redundant phrase in DC.
