    Default Didn't Watergate feel like this? 50 + only

    This is for anyone who Lived thru Watergate as a voting age adult.

    All others please refrain.

    Trump seems to think he can pull this off, Just like Millhouse.

    The dems won't be asking for his resignation...Ryan and McConnell will.

    Damn.. can't believe Trump thinks he can just talk and walk.

    This ain't cheesy NY real estate deals.

    I was only a teenager, but lived in a politically astute family.

    This IS and ISN'T like Watergate.

    Watergate was a lot like sending Capone to jail on tax charges. The left was coming off the summer of love... and invading the press. In this sense, the left is coming off BHO who got elected espousing One-Man-One-Woman marriage trojan horse, from that to the pervs in Target bathrooms. In both cases they could not understand how the good people of America could call ******** on their progressive garbage.

    If accountants could put politicians in jail these days, where would the Clinton cabal be?

    This is not even remotely like Watergate. In that incident, there was a clear crime committed; it was clearly committed for political purposes; and the individuals who committed it were caught and arrested. It was also clear that the men who were caught were not the instigators; that the order to break into the Democrats rooms had to have come from higher up. The investigation was to find out how high up and who knew what and when did they know. During that investigation, considerable efforts were made to cover up for those involved. The indictment of Nixon was about the cover up, not the break-in itself.

    In this contemporary situation, it is not even clear if there has been a crime other than a few individuals lying to the FBI about petty questions during interviews.

    Pull what off? During the Watergate time, the media spent all their time on Nixon's character, his paranoia, his tapes.

    The media spent almost 0 time on the actual "crime". It was so horrible, it was hardly mentioned. What was mentioned is the enemies list, the tapes, the mean personality.

    What did the President know and when did he know it? There was more focus during Watergate. Trump has so many arrows pointing at him its hard to keep track. Which is what he is counting on

    Trump supporters have space bugs in their heads. It is the only explanation.

    The difference from Watergate, imagine the only news networks we have right now were ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS, as it was during Nixon, anyone think Trump could have been elected let alone still in office if he had been by some miracle?

    Well actually it is for me. I remember waking up every day and heading straight for the newspaper to find out what Nixon, dean, hadelmann, Erlichman etc had done.

    well now it’s just slightly different because the president tweets how’s he’s feeling about things.

    nixon was much more sneaky.

    I was only 11 when he resigned, OP should revise the age to sixty plus if he wants to only hear from people who were of voting age when it went down. I'm 55 now. I didn't pay any attention to it, I was far more interested in the dam we were building down at the local creek so we could swim and dodging the water moccasins who swam with us.
