Ridiculous Nixon Comparison-gate

Reading between the lines of the latest White House "explanations," issued after this commentary was aired: It seems increasingly likely that President Obama was aware of the IRS situation, or at least certain aspects of the situation, after the fact, and some days or weeks before anything was disclosed to the public.

As for the president or the White House "ordering," "directing" or even "monitoring" the IRS's focus on conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status...I still don't see it.

And as for this being the Second Coming of Richard Nixon...really?
