You might want to hide the irony meter for this one. G. Gordon Liddy, the man who orchestrated the Nixon administration’s break in of the DNC headquarters at the Watergate hotel, says that the Obama administration is the most corrupt he’s seen.
Klein asked Liddy: “You lived through and in fact were a part of different presidential administrations. … Looking now at Barack Obama’s previous four years, have you ever seen a White House administration as corrupt as this one?”
“No,” replied Liddy. “It’s just astonishing. They can’t tell the truth to sell their souls. They came into office making all sorts of promises about being transparent and all the rest of it. And they just demonstrated that either they don’t know how or they [have deliberately] chosen not to be. But it’s very disappointing to the American electorate how these people failed to live up to their promises.”
Obama has indeed broken his promises on transparency, but that’s pretty much routine; the government always tries to hide its misdeeds from the voters, regardless of political party. How that supports the contention that Obama is the most corrupt president ever is beyond me. But the fact that G. Gordon Liddy, who was one of the most brazen criminals in what may well have really been the most corrupt administration ever (LBJ would give Nixon a run for his money, as would a few others) can make such a statement with a straight face tells you how utterly dishonest the man is.
