5. Thanks for your historical perspective
Edited on Sun Jul-13-03 12:11 PM by Sophree
I was born post-Watergate so I don't have anything to gauge this by.

Although, this seems MUCH worse. The general public back then seemed to know that Nixon had lied about a cover up. If they weren't astute political observers, they didn't know about all the other abuses of power.

Now the public will know that * lied about NUCLEAR weapons to fabricate evidence to bring us to war. Americans do NOT like to be lied to or feel like they were bamboozled or tricked.
